Containers are virtualized components of an Operating System (OS) that use “namespaces” technology in the OS where multiple applications can be run isolated without interfering with each other on a single piece of hardware. Imagine a software developer who wants to run multiple versions of applications in a single system. The system will not allow such processes. Here is how a container technology called Docker fits in! Docker will create a virtualization environment on top of the existing OS. In simple terms, containers are virtual environments except the OS is virtualized instead of hardware typically used in virtual machines. A developer can run multiple applications in separate containers in a single system without applications interfering with each other. This is one of the common use cases in the Information Technology (IT) industry, where developers want to test their applications on multiple versions of a software component.

The Pomodoro technique is a time management method, developed by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980s. It consists of setting a timer to break down your studying into intervals of 25 minutes each, separated by five minutes breaks. The idea is that the timer instills a sense of urgency. Rather than procrastinating that assignment all day long, you can set yourself to do as much of it as possible in the 25 minute time-span.

A team is described based on the qualities of a leader. The one who leads from the front, taking the whole team together is a leader. Leadership is not just giving orders to the teammates sitting in a chair. Leaders are those who stand along with the team during their happy as well as low times. A leader is not always the negative character in a team. Being a leader takes a lot of dedication and determination towards the task to be done. It is not that easy to lead a team. And the leadership quality will also be developed in due course of time after knowing the condition of the situation.
