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

Hello!This is the third post on how to use html5 web storage api to create a simple web application (sticky notes).

MacBook Pro – My First Ever Apple Product

Hi there! I finally did it. I took the first step towards a new experience. I have been using Windows machines since I started computing and I had several reasons for it – like the …. wait for it …. the price tag and then of course availability of solutions to common problems associated with Windows. Today, am happy to say that I am now a MacBook owner! Let us go celebrate – but after work.

Today, I did both a video recap and got my simple blog published. I am going to create a new video demonstrating how to publish your own blog after you feel confident enough to let users see it in public.

You are probably thinking ..what happened to the blog posts? I know, I just played around with the css and rotated them at an angle – so it is not by mistake that they appear tilted. Cool huh? I figured there was no need to repeat what everybody has been doing for years! Bend the rules!

Storing and Retrieving Data From Google App Engine Datastore

Today, I created two videos as a continuation of my YouTube series (How To Build a Blog Using Google App Engine). This post will be short because you might need just a little over 5 minutes a piece to watch the two tutorials. Basically, the first video shows you how to store posts in the datastore while the second video shows you how to retrieve and display the same posts on a web page! Pretty fun stuff. Let us get to them, shall we?

Now here is video 5 in the series:

Object Oriented Programming In Java – Inheritance

Object oriented programming in java is very powerful and a clear understanding is important. While I was trying to dig deeper, I realized that there is more to it than I actually knew. So, I looked around the web and spent some time on StackOverflow! Now let us create a simple file here Base.java

[java]
public class Base{
public static void main(String[] args]){
//do some cool stuff here
}
}

How To Build a Blog Using Google App Engine

Obama Apologizes and Justin Bieber Wants His Monkey Back

Hello there! This is my weekend recap and it is all about what I think about the events of the week. There are several events but I will only rant about a few of them which include Obama apologizing to Kamala Harris – the California attorney general and Kim Jong-Un of North Korea threating both US and South korea!

First things first, I still see nothing evil about Barack Obama saying that Kamala Harris is the best looking attorney general in the country. The only thing that worries me is what Michelle Obama would say when all doors are closed at the White House. Worst case: forcing him to sleep on the couch for complimenting another woman?

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 www.simpledeveloper.com 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:

[javascript]
(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);
