It isn’t easy to keep track of these things as the differences between the concepts are very subtle. In our series of guides, we explain how the individual components of the Docker ecosystem relate to one another. In this guide, you will find out what exactly a...
Computer games are becoming increasingly more realistic. One reason behind this is the use of ray tracing technology in real-time. Ray tracing in precalculated form has been used for years in animated films and computer games. However, graphic cards such as Nvidia’s GeForce RTS now use real-time ray tracing to create realistic reflections and shadows. In this article, we explain exactly what it is...
With a Discord server, you can use multiple Discord channels at the same time and add bots at your leisure. A free Discord account and the Discord app are required to set up a Discord server. Once the server has been set up, you can create a server for your gaming community, for example, and then set up different channels for each game. We’ll explain it all in this guide.

When data has to be processed in real-time, high latency or connection issues can cause big problems. With intelligent edge, the analysis and evaluation of data takes place where it is collected. This saves time and increases security. Here, we will explain exactly what intelligent edge is, how it works and what it can do for you.
The compact Arduino microcontroller is an essential component for electronic hobbyists and has shaped the global maker movement. For over a decade, technology enthusiasts around the world have been inspired by Arduino and its range of useful and often entertaining project possibilities. Here we introduce the best Arduino Uno and Nano project ideas for beginners and the more advanced.
Multitasking is not only a valuable skill in everyday life. Processors that handle multiple tasks at the same time also significantly improve computer performance. That’s why Intel invented hyperthreading. Hyperthreading technology ensures that a physical processor splits into two virtual cores and performs more than one task simultaneously. Let’s take a closer look at the advantages of a hyper...
