Backbone.js

Leave a comment

So I just felt like making something using Backbone.js, The usual idea being make a To-Do App, just to understand the framework, I thought, might as well, build a simple chat box around it.

Like always, I will use ruby on rails for my server side application, just in case, I feel like adding some nifty features at a later point in time 🙂

Let the coding begin, will add another post as soon as I am done with it 🙂

No Code!!!!

So Its been a month, I have been super busy with work @ office that I haven’t been getting any time to work on my side projects 😦 as a result. I am completely out of touch of the new happenings in Web World. Heck, I don’t even know, what is IOT 😛

Planning to stop working so much an concentrate more on the better stuff in life. Programming. yes plain old programming 🙂 need to start making stuff again.

Two things on my Mind. I haven’t been able to really grasp the advantages of Rails 4, so will spend some time looking at those and well BigData. Yes I know, I am late, but got to write some code and I do have some problem statements, that might have some bigdata applications.

will post frequently from now on. ciao

What I am working on

For a long time, I always wanted to make a one stop dashboard for me, which would allow me to do everything, for which, I have to go to a lot of different websites, Twitter, Facebook, Gmail, WordPress, checking stats of my sites, notifications, calendar, tasks etc etc.

In the end, I gave in to the temptation of making a personal dashboard which would really help me in solving the problem of having so many tabs open in my browser. 🙂

Will keep on blogging about the development on the dashboard and would put a github link soon 🙂

Start of Job hunt

Leave a comment

hey guys!!!

long time no see… So finally after almost 2 years, I am starting to search for a job. These days I feel, finding a job has become like finding the right pair of shoes for you. The ones which fit the bill, aren’t that good and ones which look cool are not that comfortable 😦

Need to find a job which is somewhere in the middle of pay and play. First preference to money though, because in the Immortal words of the Wolf of Wall street – ‘Let me tell you something. There’s no nobility in poverty. I’ve been a rich man, and I’ve been a poor man. And I choose rich every fucking time.’

I am wondering

Why? always ?

sudo nano file_name
sudo apt-get install whatever
sudo apt-get install -f
sudo apt-get remove

Why not just!! Simplify.

Edit your ~/.bash_profile.

nano ~/.bash_profile

and add something like the following lines, which you use on a daily basis.

alias snano='sudo nano'
alias apt-update='sudo apt-get update'
alias apt-fix='sudo apt-get -f install'
alias apt-remove='sudo apt-get remove'

close and re-open it.

Now you can simply use apt-fix instead of typing sudo apt-get -f install

Life made simpler 🙂

MongoDB class

Leave a comment

Hey guys! Since we started with the MongoDB course. Just saw the first video, which has some writing code in it, so I thought, I will write some, since ❤ ruby ❤
The link for the class video is – link. You can go ahead have a look and see, what it does. I just wrote a similar code which lets us do the same thing in ruby. Using sinatra( bottle is being used with python in the video)

Thats it folks, we are done. Head over to http”//127.0.0.1:8080/hello/world and see for yourself.

MongoDB courseware

Leave a comment

Hi Guys, Long time no see. Just been busy with some stuff. Today I am going to talk a bit about MongoDB. Well its too much in news, these days, your clients wanting you to use it, people telling you about scalability factors, even if you are just bulding a food recipes site. sigh!

So I thought, I might as well jump onto the bandwagon to learn some mongodb as well. So like fortunately, I found out that 10gen the company behind mongodb is having an online courseware for learning mongodb. So I enrolled with it. Oh Well, yeah its in python, I ❤ ruby. so what? Let me try and have a series of blog posts, with similar code in ruby as is taught in class in the courseware in python. Hope you guys will learns something with me too.

Time to learn 🙂
