Geiger Counter - Measuring radiation levels with Arduino

Geiger Counter – Measuring Radiation Levels with Arduino

Going back to the old boards that I found in a box, I found this Geiger counter perfectly functional to be interfaced as a shield to Arduino. In this article we will see its features together, and at the same time better understanding what a Geiger counter, or radiation sensor, is and how it works.

What is if __name__ is __main__ and why use it

What is if __name__ == “__main__” and why use it

For those who program in Python, they will be able to see the following construct within many codes, especially in the final part if __name__ == “__main__”: followed by a series of instructions enclosed in the indentation. What is it for? Why is it so common?

Thread in Python - Lock and Deadlock (part 4)

Thread in Python – Lock and Deadlock (part 4)

   In this article we will continue the Multithreading speech, introducing another very important tool: the Lock. Thanks to these, synchronization between the various threads can be managed more efficiently. We will also talk about another common problem in the thread world: deadlocks.

Thread in Python - Multithreading (part 3)

Thread in Python – Multithreading (part 3)

     In this third part of the Thread in Python series, we will look at some aspects of multithreading. In fact, in fact, threads can be very different from each other and often recursion methods to create and manage them, such as for loops, can no longer be used. There are therefore tools that allow you to manage different threads like ThreadPoolExecutor. However, thread management remains a complex operation that, if not well managed, can lead to problems such as the Race Condition. In this article we will look at these two aspects in detail.

Thread in Python - Threading (part 1)

Thread in Python – Threading (part 1)

  Once the first phase of learning a programming language, such as Python, has been overcome, all the necessary foundations for the development of any program have been acquired. But going on to develop more complex programs and contributing to different projects, often together with other developers, you will have to learn a lot of other notions, such as Threads and the concept of Threading.

Installare Git for Windows

Installing Git for Windows

Anyone who has to do with GitHub, in the cloning of the various repositories, will absolutely have to use Git. As for Linux, the installation is simpler, almost integrated with the operating system, given that Git is an application developed by Linus Torvalds in 2005, the same creator of Linux. But for those who own Windows? Well, there is a particular version of this application, called Git for Windows. In this article we will see how to install it.

How to clone a repository on GitHub

How to clone a repository from GitHub

If you have a repository on GitHub, this can be considered as a remote repository. In order to work on it and develop new versions, it will be necessary to “clone” this repository in a directory on your computer, creating a local copy of all the files. So you will have a local repository. Once this copy has been made, the two locations will be synchronized with each other.
