Concise languages make you focus more on business problems rather than fixing syntax

Today i was reviewing the code of one of the prospective java candidates, even though the code was really well written , after switching between ruby and java for over 3 years now , java code now seems very messy


for example when i look at 



Map<String, Double> currentCurrencyQuotations = quotations.get(lastCurrencyName);



it gives me a feeling that probably the person spends a lot of time in type checking the code rather than focussing on real business problems.


Ruby solves this very beautifully.i can just say  


current_currency_quotations = quotations.get(lastCurrencyName); current_currency_quotations[:key] 


would just return me the value of this key. 


Even though this might not be a very good example , but if the language is concise and makes it easier to do operations , you can focus more on solving complex business problems rather than getting stuck with silly syntax issues.

Fractals and Mandelbrot Set

While mathematics is in itself quite interesting and forms the basis of any modern day research, be it computational biology, machine learning or building complex structure, it can be quite a challenge to decide where to start.  That is why i decided to explore Fractals, thinking of it as a bridge between the nature and science. It brings in some really fascinating concepts which should be good enough for me as a gateway go deeper.  Fractals are in simple language never ending patterns which keep on repeating without an end, because fractals are never ending they have an infinite perimeter but finite area.  Since the patterns repeats indefinitely but if you draw a circle around the peremeter the area will remain finite.  It is like adding 1+0.1+0.01+0.001 and never making 2 This video explains the basic concept really well  Fractals are found everywhere nature in Trees, Rivers, Branching patterns, Hurricanes and Galaxies. It tries to bring order and understanding to the patterns that w
