How To Design Android Apps – a Simple Example

Let’s Learn how to design android apps in this post. Before we go any farther, I would like to warn you that I am not a designer by trade but I am learning these skills each day. In fact, I will admit that am terrible with colors (don’t expect over the top results from me as far as colors are concerned). Anyway, I like showing people what the final product looks like before I explain how to create it – this is because it helps those learning to have the picture in their memory and of course it is exciting that way. Let us get to it.

I Seriously Need Your Opinion On This One

Hi! Starting last week, I have been working on a project that I believe could change the way new beginners learn the whole craft of software development. I made a video and posted it on YouTube and one guy who watched it asked me why I posted it instead of keeping it secret. I believe this is not meant to be a secret. Today however, I am kindly coming to you for opinions on my landing page. Please take a minute and tell me what you think could be kept, changed, or removed from this page. They say if you ask a question, you become stupid for only five minutes. If you don’t ask, you remain stupid forever. So, here it is:

A Night In The Life of a Computer Programmer

Hello! I hope you had a good Sunday. Mine was awesome because I got to play tennis, watch my local soccer team score 4 goals against the visiting team and finally, post about what was going through my mind last night as I tried hard to sleep. For me, it is more like “a night in the life of a computer programmer”, not necessarily a day!

Have you ever had one of those moments when your mind is racing faster than you can process the information? If you love programming like I do, I have no doubt you have been through this more than once.

How To Build a Blog Using Google App Engine – Publishing

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:

My First Baseball Game With Cool Photos

Hello! Yeah, today I finally attended a pro baseball game (Kansas City Royals vs. some Canadian team), something I never wished to do(I was invited by a friend for his birthday). I know, I should remember the other team’s name but it just slipped off my head. You are probably wondering why! You know one of those things you really don’t get? For me, baseball is that thing. So, following the advice of some smart people, I decided to give it a shot. In life, they say you should do that which you have always thought you couldn’t do. You like non-fiction books? Then read fiction books. You love soccer? Then try football or baseball. The same applies to other things. That being said, I have some cool photos to show you from the game – at least I didn’t come back empty-handed right? The Royals won! Android Phone at work!
