Slicing in Python – what is it?

Slicing in Python is a feature that enables accessing parts of sequences like strings, tuples, and lists. You can also use them to modify or delete the items of mutable sequences such as lists. Slices can also be applied on third-party objects like NumPy arrays, as well as Pandas series and data frames. Slicing enables writing clean, concise, and readable code. This article shows how to access, modify, and delete items with indices and slices, as well as how to use the built-in class slice().

What is the difference between Shadow DOM and Virtual DOM?

DOM (Document Object Model) is a fundamental concept in front-end, and for sure, everyone who tried to learn programming has heard about it more than once. For beginners, it’s not so easy to understand what it exactly is and how to manipulate it. DOM manipulation isn’t so easy and comfortable, and the most important, it brings a lot of issues with performance. Nowadays, there are two essential concepts of DOM came with progressive web frameworks like Angular, React.

What are Javascript classes and how to use them

What are javascript classes Classes are a fundamental concept in object-oriented programming, and they are used in many programming languages, but it wasn’t like this in Javascript. Until ECMAScript2015, known as ES6, classes didn’t exist in JS. In 2015 with the update classes were introduced as syntactic sugar for the existing prototype inheritance model. What classes bring is a more comfortable and more readable syntax for objects and inheritance.

Essential knowledge about what are Javascript functions with examples

Function in programming is one of the most basic elements. It is a set of statements that perform some activity to get the result. In lots of cases, the action is performed using the data which are provided as input. The statements in the function are executed every time the function is invoked. Functions are used to avoid repeating the same code. The idea is to gather tasks that are executed more than ones into a function and then call the function wherever you want to run that code.

Python list – definition and usage

Python has several collection data types — the types that might hold multiple data items at once. Lists are immutable and ordered Python sequence collections.To be more precise, the collections don’t store data items. They keep the references to them. You can have the references to the objects of different types (integers, floating-point numbers, complex numbers, Booleans, strings, other lists or tuples, sets or dictionaries, custom-defined types, and so on) in one list.

13 useful VS Code extensions for front-end development

Since some time Visual Studio Code becomes very popular IDE for Javascript developers. I started using it two years ago, and in my opinion, it’s a fantastic code editor. It allows me to customize it just as I want. VS Code also has a build-in git integration and terminal, so you don’t have to jump from one window to another.There are tones of plugins and even themes, where everyone can find something that he or she needs.

How to Start with Machine Learning?

Machine learning is about using sample data to build mathematical models that enable computer systems to perform tasks without obtaining explicit instructions. Image recognition, self-driving vehicles, Internet search engines, computer vision, spam email filtering, and many other systems use machine learning. It’s also applied in financial forecasts, medical diagnostics, fraud detection, and so on. Machine learning is a vast and promising area. It offers exciting solutions to real-world problems as well as a variety of well-paid jobs.
