Writing Clean And Understandable Code

This post is about all the programming languages, wheter you are writing your code in C, C++, Python, Javascript, PHP, HTML, it doesn't matter, these tips apply to all of them.

What is clean and understandable code and why is it important ?

Reading bad code usually takes more time than it did writing it.

If you are a programmer and know the syntax, the code should be easy to read and shouldn't take much time to go through. You will have to teach yourself to improve your code writing skills, meaning that you will have to practice it and inspire yourself to take time and keep the code clean, even when writing a very simple and short code.

Code is clean, when the people, who don't understand programming or know the syntax, read the code and get an idea of what is happening on certain lines and places.

How To Google Effectively

Do you know how to use google search to get the best out of it?

Most people just type in words related to what they're looking for, but that might not give the result they were hoping for. Google got his name from the word "googol", which referes to a very large number ( number one and 100 zeros after that ) and google search gives you also a lot of results for one search case and it may not be very accurate because of your unprecise terms.

Today i will teach you how to make your google search more efficient. You can use many terms in one search, just separate them by empty space. Or if you want to use more than one word in a term, separate them by coma.

How to save RAM from unwanted software

RAM ( random access memory ) is used by all of the programs that you run on your computer. Everything that a program loads up is stored in random access memory ( pictures, text, programming language data ). Nowadays, 4 GB or RAM is a very recommended minimum when buying a new computer, but older ones still have 1 or 2 gigabytes of it ( mostly win xp or vista ). Windows 7 eats more ram than vista and xp. I personally have 7 professional ( 64-bit )  and it takes about 1,3 GB-s.

Because the operating system already eats a lot of RAM, we dont want other unnecessary programs to waste it, do we?

Windows 8

I'm not sure if all of you are waiting for Windows 8 to come out, which will be on the 26th of october ( thats 2 weeks from now ), but it's almost here.

They're offering an upgrade solution from Win7 to Win8 pro for 70 $. Bigger shops already offer the chance to order it.
Regular version of pro is about 140 $.

If you're planning to wait for the official release, you'll get the upgrade package for 40 $ ( it's pro ). Thats a little bit more than half the money you'd have to pay now, and in my oppinion it's a good save for 2 weeks.

Some of the features that Win8 has to offer:

So it's been a month since Apple released iPhone 5 and in the first few days they sold over 5 million copys and today you'd have to wait up to few weeks in queue to get one.

But it's not only the iPhone i wanted to talk about.

Samsung is planning to come to the market with a smaller version of Galaxy S3. Since the S3 is a flagship for Samsung and it has sold well, they aim for the same market ( mainly Europe, because of the 4 inch screen demand ).
