Exploring the Magnificent Capital City of Taiyuan Through Java Code

Today, I'm set to take a dive into Taiyuan–the magnificent capital city of Shanxi Province in Northern China. While Taiyuan is filled with amazing architecture and bustling street markets, I am instead exploring it through a different lens: its local Java code! As a software engineer, the best way to understand an area is by finding the local code and really delving into scope of the projects they are working on, hopes, and dreams for the future.

Taiyuan is a hub of innovation in the Shanxi province. Companies both big and small are taking advantage of the city's infrastructure, universities, and technology ecosystem. This is allowing engineers to develop new software and create innovative projects. From web applications for small businesses to more complex machine learning algorithms and beyond, Taiyuan is a hotbed for development.

Now for the code. I'm using Java for this project, as it is the most popular language used in Taiyuan. For this project, I am creating a simple program to generate a random list of names from Taiyuan. I'm using a few coding techniques I picked up from my time in the city. For example, I am implementing an efficient algorithm to ensure the names are random and there is not any duplicated names. This allows the user to generate a list of names, no two the same.

public static void main (String[] args) {
    // create array of possible names
    String[] names = { "Ming", "Wang", "Xu", "Li", "Chen", "Yang", "Sun", 
                       "Jiang", "Zhao", "Zhou", "Liu", "Wu", "Huang", 
                       "Qian", "He", "Qin", "Luo", "Yuan", "Zheng" };
    // create list to store the random names
    List<String> randomNames = new ArrayList<>();
    // loop through names array
    for (int i = 0; i < names.length; i++) {
        // create random index and store randomly generated name
        int randomIndex = (int) ( Math.random()*names.length );
    // print out the list of random names

With the list of random names successfully generated, I can start tackling more complex ideas. This is something that has been on my list for a while, as there are several applications that could be built on top of this code. For example, I could build an interactive game where the randomly generated names are used for players. I could also use the code to create datasets for machine learning models—the possibilities are endless!

Taiyuan is an amazing city and has some fantastic opportunities for software engineers. With my project based in Java and working with the local innovation, I feel closer to the heart of the city in a way that several sightseeing tours couldn't offer.
