Create Your Own Twitter Client Using Java Programming

A twitter client does what the Twitter site does as well as the Twitter App. The main difference is this: you don’t have to use either of those two to post your random thoughts online and even photos of your drunk friends who will be fired sooner or later. Anyway, so you feel like you have had enough of this conformity stuff and you want to do things your own way – even the forces agree with you, you feel. I will show you how to achieve that! We will use Java programming language to create a simple twitter client that will post our tweets for us. Are you ready?

Using Twitter Search API To Find Happy People (Latest)

Using the new Twitter Search API (v1.1) requires a little bit more work than in the previous version. Today, I am going to show you how to set everything up and finally show you how to use this new Twitter Search API to search whatever you want on Twitter.

Before you can use this new version of the Twitter Search API, you need a few things – just two things to be exact and they include:

Good Programming Styles and Practices

Hello! I hope you are doing good today! Understanding good programming styles and practices is very important to any serious programmer. Most people have arguments for and against certain ways of programming – let us look at a few and then give you an opportunity to share your own views.

How To Build a Simple App Using HTML5 Web Storage API – Part I

Hello there! It is nice to see you here (I am not really seeing you). Today, I am getting back to serious business – sharing what I have learned over the years and writing some markup and code as we go. This post will be in two parts. This is the first part. HTML5 is something we cannot ignore anymore, at least that is what I think. So what is Web Storage API? We will find out soon.

Most developers are used to storing client data in a cookie. Cookies are limited to 4K of data. Today however, it doesn’t take much effort to realize that we need more space. That is where HTML5 Web Storage comes in.

Using Twitter API and Python Programming Language

Using Twitter API is fun and today, I am going to have some fun with you, hopefully, making good use of the free speech and the love of python programming. If the name John Boehner is alien to you, don’t worry; he is the speaker of the house in Washington. He likes crying – you could say he carries his cup of tears in his sleeves. Let us find out what people are saying about him on Twitter. Meanwhile, enjoy this:

The Tools We Will Need.

Before we do anything, we will need a few things. If you do any programming in any language, you will find this easier than it sounds:

Learn a Programming Language In 21 Days – Not

Hi! I hope you are doing good today. Let us assume you are trying to learn something totally new. What would you do first? I suspect you will visit the internet, grab some highly recommended books from Amazon, register for a class somewhere and many others. But what if you had a chance to learn your craft fast? Really fast!

You have probably seen some of those online ads telling you that you could be speaking a new language in 10 days. The question is, why are people in such a hurry?

How To Build a Blog Using Google App Engine

Hello there! I have been busy creating videos for both Google Maps APIs and most recently building a blog from scratch using Google App Engine – which is free and awesome. I am going to shorten the length of this post that way, I save you some time to watch some of the videos which are also available on YouTube.

This video shows you how to set up the environment on your computer and includes downloading and installing both Python27 and Google App Engine: Ejoy!

Moving Out of WordPress

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Today, I decided to migrate my blog from WordPress to a self-hosted  domain : I was lucky enough to find available and so I grabbed it and ran away!.


When I realized that I could do more outside WordPress, I decided to take the risk. I am still using WordPress as a blogging platform. What I changed is where my blog is hosted. One other important thing is that I don’t have to type .wordpress when visiting my site anymore! Now a few takeaways:

Programming With Google Maps APIs – Part VI

Hello! Nice to see you and thanks for stopping by. In the last two days I took a detour from programming but today I am going to pick up from where I left Google Maps APIs – Part V . Today’s post will be relatively shorter than previous ones because I am completing a section (at the end, I will give an app idea). Let us get to it. We should start with our previous finishing code:

(function () {
window.onload = function () {
var mapDiv =  document.getElementById(‘map’);

var options = {
zoom: 3,
center: new google.maps.LatLng(37.09, -95.71),
mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
var map = new google.maps.Map(mapDiv, options);

Programming With Google Maps APIs – Part V

Hello! I am back to show you how to add Google maps markers to your map. At the end of my fourth Google Maps APIs  post, I mentioned in passing that I will be starting with Markers today and that is exactly where I will start. To make things fun, here is what a marker looks like – you have probably seen one if you have used a map before!

There you have it! So a marker is a small image that is positioned at a specific place on a map. Now we can figure out how to add it to our own map. We will start with a basic code for our map.
