Reshuffler International

Having a new director does not ensure easy transition. After a few reshuffling in the structure and organization in my university we had the biggest surprise. We have anew boss, because our old boss was transferred to another assignment and the new boss is and eversince she is a BOSS. She occupies a very high position in the university  structure and now she on us..wow.. Pressures were felt as she conducted the first meeting with us. Reality Bites!!!

Its the last few days of June again we still havent deployed anything from the newly developed IS and i starting to worry.. If the schedule is to be met the deployment should have started but because some things are still to be resolved , we have to wait again.. Regarding my problem on ClickOnce well until now it is still a problem but im having great developments on it..keep u posted on that....

Right now my fellow faculty is in the seminar hall listening to Dr. Lourdes Quisumbings talk and im here fiddling with the keyboard....Lucky for me i have to look into the installation of the PABX systemin the school.. Ill surely miss a great talk but ill be there this afternoon..

Knowledge seem to come from anywhere so dont stop learning and dont stop evolving.......

Hiding Unwanted Python Folders and Files in Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code is a universal editor and pretty good at it. However, the explorer view maybe cluttered with the automatically generated folders and files confusing developers. Python is no different. Below are example files and folders generated by Python.

The __pycache__ folder and *.pyc files  are totally unnecessary to the developer. To hide these files from the explorer view, we need to edit the settings.json for VSCode. Add the folder and the files as shown below:
Copy and paste the lines below :

"**/*.pyc":{"when":"$(basename).py"},"**/__pycache__":true

Get Started with MongoDB Stitch : The New Backend As Service Offering from MongoDB

Halfway of this year, the guys from MongoDB launch their new backend as service product called MongoDB Stitch. While the launch is just for the beta, the promise of the service is quite interesting. MongoDB has been around for long now and some development stacks have been based on its database product, the MongoDB-ExpressJS-Angular-NodeJS (MEAN) and the MongoDB-ExpressJS-React-NodeJS (MERN) stacks to name a few. These stacks, however, relies on backend technology such as ExpressJS and NodeJS. The idea of provisioning servers and developing the backend solution makes it daunting for small to medium scale applications. MongoDB Atlas, at least made life much easier by providing on cloud database solution, but there must be a simpler solution, right? A solution the would stitch the backend and frontend together ( see what I did there ?).
MongoDB Stitch lets developers focus on building applications rather than on managing data manipulation code, service integration, or backend infrastruct…

Getting Started with Stateless : A Lightweight Workflow Library Alternative for .NET

A year ago, I was looking for a simple workflow manager for a project I was working. Its a medium sized application that involves tracking the state of assets in the system. Back in 2008, Microsoft (MS) introduced new technologies along with the release of Visual Studio 2008: Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), and Windows Workflow Foundation(WF). Having worked in a company utilizing mostly MS products for development, my first option was to go with WF. After doing some time reading and studying the library, I paused and decided it was too complex for my requirement. Using WF would be an overkill and the fact that it has, a rather, steep learning curve, there has to be another option. My mind toyed with the idea of developing a simple workflow library myself. It would be a learning experience but it might end up consuming a lot of time.

Why reinvent the wheel? So I started querying the internet for a better solution. I stumbled upon Stateless
