In the world of testing - automation can be a real game-changer. That’s why it’s on everyone’s tongues, especially "automated tests" in the context of GUI tests written in python/java with SeleniumWebDriver. Or possibly with the increasingly popular Cypress.io.

Common stereotypes show that in the IT industry, effective communication skills are not strong points in the profile of a typical programmer. They need only to have solid technical skills to help them accomplish specific tasks and to create particular products. But it turns out that nothing could be more wrong.

On the day I’m posting this article - the 22nd of April - it’s International Earth Day. This special occasion has motivated me to share a little bit on how we can reduce the price that we pay for all the goods I’ve mentioned. Working separately, we can’t do much, but if we make a good example as an individual, we can inspire a whole population.

JVM creators designed it with automatic memory management in mind, which means programmers don’t need to worry about memory allocation and memory. Unused objects can be released automatically in a transparent way, which is really convenient, especially when you’re new to JVM. But even in general, there's less code to write and it's less error-prone than the traditional approach which requires you to do everything manually.

What is it about Scala that developers prefer over other languages? Why do we need Scala? This post was originally meant to be focusing on Scala vs Kotlin comparison - so we interviewed our senior engineer (who was previously a Java engineer) just to find out, that there is a way better story to tell - about how Scala makes Developers enjoy their work again. Let me take you on a journey to discover the ultimate truth!

At Scalac we always try to use appropriate technology to meet the requirements given by the business. We’re not afraid to change them once we realize they’re not fit for purpose. By making these changes we learn, we grow, we evolve. In this article, we want to share what we learned during the migration from Apache Spark + Apache Cassandra into Apache Druid.
