driving tips anyone?

Last year I started having my driving lesson. I took the free one, so I let my father do the teaching. Deep in my mind I know I can teach myself driving but I have to let my father do the teaching, he owns the car… I tried googling for some driving tips , till I reached the LTOs site and prompted me to download two document files. I would be taking the exam for driving license anyway ( which did not happen, answers were provided!!!!) so I downloaded the dile and it was helpful . It contains tips and event basic tutorials on safety driving and road signs. You can download the file in the links that I am providing. In case the link is dead just inform me through email or comment the article.

  1. Traffic Signs
  2. Safety Driving

Enjoy!!! But Just Don't READ and DRIVE at the same time.

This reminds me my experience in getting my license. California rules are strict when it comes to driving. You have to do particular things like there is an standard style of holding the steering wheel, you have to show the proctor that you are checking the rear and side mirrors when you are changing lanes, you have to look left and right when crossing an intersection, etc. Bottomline, be safe.

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:

renaming default namespaces for VSTO projects in VS2008

So here is the scenario , you are starting a VSTO project and decided that your default namespace is ExcelAddInTesterApp . You created the project and started coding the project. After several days , your boss called and said "hey marvin , make use of this namespace OurCompany.ExcelAddInTesterApp , we have to add our company name to it got it?" . You get back to your machine thinking its just a simple property just like any project you've been working on. So you right clicked the VSTO project and hit properties . Boom! What the F@#$? The default namespace textbox is disabled!!!!

I've been through this and I googled for ways to do it and ended up with a blog from a Microsoft MVP telling me it can't be done because it is disabled. Then I thought of Refactoring, the beauty and grandeur of the renaming process. I selected the namespace and hit the refactor menu hoping that this would solve the problem . Unfortunately , it did not rather it displayed the message box …

Automatic Properties and Object Initializers in .Net 3.5

With the release of .Net 3.5 alongside with Visual Studio 2008 , new enhancements was again introduced . Some maybe well pronounced such as the inclusion of WCF, WPF , LINQ in .Net 3.0 and some just came unnoticed. If you have been accustomed of using a particular method or technique in implementing a certain code in .Net 2.0 , because of backward compatibility , you may not even notice that there are new ways of implementing it in .Net 3.5.

Here are two new concepts in .Net 3.5 that a developer may not notice ( at least in my opinion ) : Automatic Properties and Object Initializers . To illustrate these two , I am going to present the pre-.Net 3.5 way (.Net 2.0) and the .Net 3.5 way in creating a simple class with simple properties.

Automatic Properties

Creating a class can be tedious , especially when working with a list of properties , . One way to get around having to type the code for a private field and its public property getter and setter is to use a refactoring tool. However, …
