Misconceptions of ASCII and Unicode

Myth: ASCII characters take up one byte ASCII represented characters using numbers between 32 and 127. This accounted for characters used in the English language (lowercase and uppercase) and the numbers between 1-32 were reserved control characters.

Stack Memory vs. Heap Memory

Stack Memory The stack memory is used within a context of a thread. It is called stack memory since memory blocks are allocated in LIFO order, based on the function call stack. Each stack memory block houses data for local variables, references, and other bookkeeping data.

Misconceptions of Software Engineer interviews at FAANG

There are already so many articles and Quora/Reddit/Blind posts out there on how to interview prep to get into big companies. So instead of covering that in detail, I want to focus more on the angle of common misconceptions.

Scanning for memory addresses with Cheat Engine and ZSNES

Cheat Engine (CE) is an open source memory scanner/hex editor/debugger that works for Windows applications. Another way to put it is that CE is used to explore the memory that is dynamically allocated (by Windows) in games.

DataFrames (a software engineer's perspective)

What is a DataFrame? A DataFrame is a special data structure used primarily by data scientists and machine learning algorithms. It contains row and column data in tabular fashion by storing metadata about each column and row.
