Functional programming is a stupid toy

We are mushrooms

We still have a tactic that we are sticking to - for the second year in a row we finish the year in first place among companies. There is no recipe or secret ingredient here - there is daily work that produces its results. Like the gym when you're not messing around.

The bottom line is that we analyze blog activities over the past 4 years.

All calculations in this publication are based on analyzing a CSV file containing information about all blog posts that can be exported to the control panel of a company blog - thanks to Habr for this opportunity.

Blog on Habré

You could just write numbers here, but it's much more convenient to compare them with numbers from previous periods. If you consider that we've been blogging about Habré for four years, it's quite possible to observe the dynamics:

2016.The blog published 72 posts, of which 58 (80%) were rated positively and 14 (20%) were rated negatively.

2017.The blog has 170 posts, only one of which has a negative rating (0.58%).

2018.260 articles were published, all 260 of which were positively rated.

2019. In theVoice of Dudya:Three hundred. eight. Contributions.
Of these, 308 posts have a positive rating.

In 2018 we seemed to be freaking out - 247 working days a year, and we published 260 posts, i.e. one post a day and a little on weekends. This year the number of working days is the same, but there are more jobs - they have entered a rhythm, gained momentum, and the load doesn't seem too heavy. Furthermore, this doesn't seem to be the limit of our capabilities - there is a feeling that we will freak out even more in 2020 so you read us twice a day :) joke (although every joke has a joke).

We continue to focus on translation - we select content fillets across the network for the main target audience of our products - developers and administrators. We choose and translate at the request of our readers. We think this option is optimal - you can see the quality of the release, the community's response to it, and calculate the cost of the resource. But it can no longer be said that the RUVDS blog consists only of translations - this year we decided to put pressure on the author's content. A report from Baikonur, a series of articles on education and careers, iron testing, and more - you've probably read some of them by now. We will try to increase the percentage of copyrighted content in the new year. If you want to post something on Habré, write to us, we will agree.

In the meantime, many thanks to all readers for evaluating our activities positively.

Back to the numbers

Of the 308 publications, there was not a single one with a negative rating, although there were disadvantages (albeit fewer than in previous years). A total of 13,232 votes were cast for them (11,870 plus points and 1,362 minus points), the overall rating of the contributions was 10,508, i.e. the average rating of the contributions is +34 (in 2018 it was +25).

Compared to previous years:

We still like the numbers, but as always, we want more. That is why we will try to take into account the mistakes (from the comments and the reasons for the minuses) and get better in the new year.

Last year we were happy that we regularly took first place in the company valuation, although the bar of 1000 units of the Habra index did not break. This year we broke through consistently and our blog took first place for most of the year.

The number of blog subscribers for the year rose from 2000 to 12,000, but apparently this is primarily due to bringing in new Habr users.

Which hubs do we write to the most:

Top 10 publications of our blog by favorites


We traditionally pack large translation cycles into a PDF file that is more convenient to save - somewhere in a documentation folder (or in an e-book) rather than a series of links in your favorites. This year we only had one such cycle - about React in 27 publications:

→ PDF version of the React manual / 278 pages, 4.8 MB

Previous editions:

→ PDF version of the Bash Scripting Manual / 150 pages, 5 MB
→ PDF version of the Node.js manual / 120 pages, 1.8 MB
→ PDF version of the JavaScript manual / 103 pages, 2 MB

It is not yet entirely clear how we will take to new heights in 2020, but there is a wish and some plans. We will be very grateful if you indicate in the comments what you like (not) about our blog, what topics it would be interesting to read and in general each construct.

We wish you a happy new year and we will achieve your goals in the new year!
