trying to be street smart v2.0

i know i have posted something like this before . well i had another route to discuss and this time i learned it the hard way ( jack ass me) . this morning i accompanied my parents together with some relatives to the domestic airport. i didnt have problem going to the airport because we took the cab , going back was the tricky for me . its my first time so pardon my stupidity.

so to get back i need to either be in cubao or in recto , so i took jeepney ride going to baclaran. then i walked passed the LRT baclaran station to ride a jeepney going to recto. the traffic was so horrific and i have to take all those pollutions that the city has to offer. the sad part , i missed recto (hahaha). i went as far as monumento and not noticing it . so i had to go down and this time took the LRT to recto (doroteo jose station). well thats me playing street smart again.

heres the route for Domestic Airport to Recto
1. take a jeepney ride to baclaran , then ride a jeepney to recto ( dont miss !)
2. take a jeepney ride to baclaran , use the LRT to go to Doroteo Jose (Recto)
the fare is almost the same....

heres the route Domestic Airport to Cubao
1. take a jeepney ride to baclaran , then ride a bus going to cubao.

till my next stupidity .....

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:

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
