React, TypeScript, web
TypeScript in React projects provides us with all the goodies of type checks and eliminate the whole class of errors and typos from our codebase. Let’s see how we can apply TypeScript-based type definitions into our React project to get most of it.
TypeScript, Kotlin, const, immutability
Nowadays I mostly code in Kotlin programming language. I got interested in it when I started working on a Java 7 codebase and quickly got fed up with the language. At Bright Inventions we often use TypeScript for both back-end, front-end and mobile development so I thought I would share some thoughts and tips for TypeScript learned while using Kotlin. In particular this post is about constant variables.
People who start their professional coding adventure, whether they are still studying, just graduated or changing profession, may often hesitate what programming platform they should start with. So let me mention a few reasons why I think it’s a great idea to start with Android.

Last week I attended a climbing competition dedicated for girls only to celebrate the international women’s day. It was held quite far away from my home town and on my way back I was wondering why I was so excited to attend a climbing competition for women and at the very same time I am so sceptical about any girls-only programming events.
aws, cloudformation, lambda, cloudform
Serverless deployments are popular these days. With a minimal cost you can have your own code wait and respond to various events. AWS Lambda, Azure Functions are just 2 examples of serverless offering from the biggest cloud providers. For a long time I had thought about them only in the context of ad-hoc setups not suitable for a long term development. This was until I found out that you can, with a little effort, version and deploy the serverless API just as a traditional back-end. In this post I am going to show how to deploy AWS Lambda functions with the help of the tool Adam created at Bright Inventions called cloudform.

groupwork, teamwork, creativity, success
Have you ever heard about Groupthink? It occurs when a group of people make faulty decisions due to mutual pressure. According to Irving Janis who coined this term for the first time in 1972, the group pressure leads to a deterioration of mental efficiency, moral judgement as well as reality verification. Groups affected by the groupthink phenomenon frequently ignore alternatives while looking for a solution. People who are vulnerable to groupthink mostly have a similar background, work in organisations with a lack of established decision making process and do not meet any outside opinions.
