What Patience and Passion Can Pay You

Hello! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are having a great weekend – unless you have already crossed into Monday! Today I was expecting to visit a local zoo but it didn’t happen due to unavoidable circumstances – meaning you will not see cute lions and chimps until I visit them soon. Right now though, I want to say something about patience and Passion. 

how to succeed in life after failing

More often that not, I ask myself questions about life. The common whys and ifs. I believe most of us do. When will I succeed? Then even more: How many times must I fail? Why are my plans looking good at first and yet they never bear any fruit in the end?

Are You Interested In Weekend Hangouts For Coders?

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Have you ever wanted to participate in live hangouts with coders?. If that sounds like you, let me share with you an idea I just thought about: Google+ Hangouts on The Weekends (Saturday) for coders(beginners and experts alike)!

I am looking for coders who are willing to hangout on Saturdays for a few hours (could be 1 – 2) on Google Plus. The hangouts will involve teaching each other new things and writing code to solve small problems that fit the available time span.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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);
