From time to time we are working on small campaigns, where competition starts at given time. Because in Australia we have “so many” timezones, it’s critical to set things correctly according to the time zone.
I recently worked on a project with a super dull address form. I figured out that we need to help poor users fill tedious forms, so I made a little code snippet/function which gets the postcode and returns the state. I took postcode ranges from wikipedia , so blame them if something isn’t working as expected.
People quite often asking me about technology stack, and where to go with next big project. The answer isn’t simple – it depends. Usually, we have couple components which are critical for the whole system. If we are talking about a web-based solution or any API we have to decide about DATABASE, then we have STORAGE, moving on – some BACKEND service language.
