Google Is Shutting Down Its URL Shortening Service

We all know very well that the tech giant Google’s URL Shortener service is one of the best URL shortening services available on the market. However, now according to the latest reports, recently, the tech giant Google itself has announced the closure of its well-known URL shortening service.

Google Is Shutting Down Its URL Shortening Service

If you have a link to copy, but it aesthetically looks bad because it’s over, then certainly you’ve already turned to the popular URL shortcuts.

One of the best known is the tech giant Google’s URL Shortener (goo.gl), but this service has the days counted and will be closed as early as 1 year.
To make life easier for those who want to copy lengthy URLs, the tech giant Google’s URL shortener was created in 2009.

Earlier we wrote about this service here that became massively used by Internet users, since it allows not only URL shortening, save previously shortened URLs and still know how many clicks were made on that short link.

If you use this service, you will certainly be dismayed to learn that the tech giant Google’s developer team announced today that Goo.gl will be shut down in exactly one year, by March 30, 2019.

The closing process will begin in April, and the links created so far will remain active. However, after April 13, users who have never used the service, or who have used it anonymously, will no longer be able to create short links.

Those who use the service may continue to do so by the time of closure.

Moreover, the tech giant Google says that this closure is intended to promote the use of the service Firebase Dynamic Links, which allows, with the same link, access different locations, depending on the device you access.

But for those who want just shorten URLs, the tech giant Google recommends using services like Bitly and Ow.ly.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
