As we opened a children's robotics center in a small town

Hello Habr! Today I would like to talk about our experience of opening a circle of children's robotics and about the nuances that arose in the process.
 
 
 
As we opened a children's robotics center in a small town  
 
At the moment our team is developing a small network of children's centers of robotics in the South of Russia. The first center was opened in September 2017. Since the team is fairly skilful, we decided to abandon the franchise immediately. It seemed to us: what could be easier than writing your own small educational program? Lego robotics kits cost some sky-high money, which none of us had at the time of the launch. Therefore, it was quite logical ...

What is a property?

At school, I needed tremendous efforts to understand the concept of Cantor about the multitude of power continuum. But then I realized that I did not understand anything, but only learned the rules of working with such objects. In the field of understanding, there was a white spot, so it remained white. Since then, I have repeatedly returned to this issue until I became acquainted with statistical physics and sopromat.
 
 
In these sciences, the concepts of matter and the concept of state were very well defined. It was said that the definition of a substance requires a volume of a minimum size...

How do we model the subject domain in second-order predicates and do not notice this

Any model has limited accuracy. The more accurate the model needs to be built, the more information it will have to store. If there is an opportunity to collapse an array of data by some of the criteria, then this convolution allows us to drastically reduce the amount of stored information. However, such a convolution is not modeled by the standard modeling methods, because it requires the modeling of statements simultaneously and relative to the sets of objects, rather than objects of these sets. In fact, we need a tool for modeling both first-order predicates and second-order predicates.

Brilliant plans are lucky for the designers.
 
Bad plans carry on the performers.

At this stage, the process begins to revolve around the project manager. Again, the evaluation of labor intensity, the definition of terms, the coordination of volumes, the approval of the order of execution, etc.
 
 
Since we are talking about large projects, then with a high degree of probability for the implementation of the project solution, the entire production process of the information system ...[/h]

What moves IT in business: springboards and obstacles

What moves IT in business: springboards and obstacles According to some sources global cloud traffic by 2021 will reach 95% of total data center traffic.

There is nothing more difficult, dangerous and uncertain than leading the introduction of a new order of things, because each innovation has ardent enemies who lived well in the old way, and sluggish supporters who are not sure whether they will be able to live a new life.

clear plan and limited time.
 
Albert Hubbard
And now the customer and the executor struck at the hands, deciding what exactly they will produce, having determined the approximate time and cost. The second stage of production of the software product begins.
 
 
There comes a time when the project manager is actively involved in the whirlpool of the processes. No, he could participate in the events before. For example, related to the assessment of labor intensity, timing, etc., but ...[/h]
