Finish the work in hand (FIFO)

Suppose you have two buckets to take and fill in the washing machine. How do you do it?
There are two approaches.
Step 1
Take both the buckets. Walk carefully till the washing machine.  Empty both the buckets. And then bring back the empty buckets.
Step 2
Take one bucket. Take it to the washing machine. Fill it up. Bring it back. Now take the second bucket. Take it to the washing machine. Empty the bucket. And bring it back.
The step 1 develops physical strength. The second one develops mental strength.
If you say you cannot empty both the buckets at the same time, then you are using intelligence. You are succumbing to FIFO pressure. FIFO is First In First Out. What is your take? Strength or Intelligence?

It is all in the family !!

In a family a parent makes changes. Those changes impact children. For e.g. A father earns. The money gives a good life to many of his children.
In the field of IT it is called as one to many relationship. One change is made. Many impact is achieved. Someone may say why father. Why not mother? Not so fast. Give me time to type.
What I am saying here is only one to many relationship. I have not taken up the topic of entities. And their relationship.
Yes, both are important. One to many is important. So is entity relationship. Only when you know both these can you call yourself a professional IT man.
I advise you to spend considerable time and using good imagination design database. Comments are welcome.

OOPS !! Who wrote Bhagvath Gita ?

OOPS above is Object Oriented Programming System.
If you think that Bhagvath Gita was written by Ved Vyas page after page, thinking, turning pages then your thought is in the style of structural programming.
If you think that Ved Vyas just sat with a pen and book arrived automatically and moved suitably so as to form words by the movement, then your thought is in the style of object oriented programming.
The above explains the concept of structural programming and object orientation of software.
In earlier days we had structural programming and a programmer said do this, do that, go there etc. Most of the earlier languages like COBOL, C etc were suitable for structural programming.
In today's world object orientation reigns supreme. Java, C++ are object oriented languages.
OOPS is a much better way of looking at the world. Because most of us would say Bhagvath Geeta is God's word and not Ved Vyas's.
