ten reasons why you should date a geek

i was scavenging on my inbox when i found this funny article that sent to a friend of mine.i saw this almost 2 years ago in DEVPINOY so i guess i posting it now in my blog.

1. Geeks are useful, they can fix your desktop, laptop, … Those skills are very useful and can make your life run smooth.

2. They are romantic than they're given credit for. Their idea of romance might be making up a web-page abut about you. But hey it lasts longer than flowers and you can show your friends.

3. They've got brains and they're usually very well educated.

4. They're relatively low-maintenance. So there will be no complicated dinners needed. And if you're not the best cook, you can order a pizza.

5. You won't have to worry about what he's doing. You'll probably find him at his computer.

6. They trust you, so you can be yourself around them. You like to walk around the house in a ratty t-shirt for comfort? He won't care. They won't get pissy if you don't wear make-up or don't want to bother primping your hair.

7. He will make you shine everywhere you go. No matter how clumsy you sense of style, no matter how awkward your social skills, you'll be a fashion star and a classy diplomat next to your geek. He'll make you look so good; you'll fall in love with yourself.

8. If you are not into computers, TVs and DVD and you don't care about being popular and fashionable. What about the newest techie gadgets? You are going to be a proud owner of the latest gadgets if you ever decide to date a geek.

9. He won't cheat on you either. Place the sexiest woman on earth in a room with a geek, say Angelina Jolie. At the other corner of the room, place the latest model of some computer or other. I am willing to bet that your geek would want to play with that computer much more than getting to know Angelina Jolie. In fact, he might not even see her if the computer is on and connected to the Internet. C'mmon he has to check his email, surf the web and blog about the fact that he is in a room with Angelina Jolie.

10. The final reason is: They actually give a damn about you. Not how you look (though that's a plus), not how skinny you are, not how much make-up you primp yourself up with, but they like you for you.

im not saying that these reasons should keep the hopes up of those desperate geeks waiting for someone to get laid with. extra effort is needed , you can just stay there infront of your machine expecting someone from another gender to bump into you and ask you out.

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
