How Mathematical Induction Change My Life

When I was an undergraduate, I learned about proof by induction for the first time in Discrete mathematics class. It was inspiring, and it helped me change how I approach success in life.

What is Proof by Induction?

Mathematical induction proves that we can climb as high as we like on a ladder, by proving that we can climb onto the bottom rung (the basis) and that from each rung we can climb up to the next one (the step).

Many young developers study computer science online by themselves. They’ve heard about many subjects that they need to cover like algorithms, data structures, databases, and many more. However, only a few have heard about discrete mathematics — even though it is the backbone of computer science.

In this article, I will tell you why you need to consider studying discrete mathematics. But first, let me tell you a little about it.

Discrete mathematics is not a type of continuous mathematics like calculus, which we spend most of our school years studying. Continous mathematics studies objects (e.g. real numbers) that vary…


A step-by-step guide to importing CSV data into Google’s cloud storage

Data

Databases usually have data that are gathered by data entry operators. It is always faster to let the data entry operator use a tool that everyone knows (e.g. Google spreadsheets) than to give them a personalized way to inject data into your database. This way, it helps them do their job faster and gives you the space to revise the data and minimize the effort needed to code a personalized form on your website.

For many other reasons, you might have the data in an Excel sheet before the data in question. In this article, I will cover how to…
