get new layout templates for bloggers from WEBTALKS

I am just a blogger with no funds to invest on domain names and hosting services . Yes , I have to be contented with freebies . No cost , lesser maintenance but lower flexibility . I've been in blogger since 2005 , pity me , I have to deal with monotonous templates just to get along . With some CSS revisions , I managed to do some tweaking with my site . Until recently , because of the bloging craze that has been selling like hot cakes in the office , I wanted to go up further . Theres no harm in trying to make your site easier to navigate , less lengthy on the sidebars and yes , more room for advertisements be it for adsense or for adbrite . I really envy those who created their own blogs from scratch (e.g. Chris , Rod , Ryan), they have all the flexibility at hand .

So I began looking for the most intuitive layout that i could find . Unlike before , my eye for three column blogs have changed , i started liking it . So i begun looking for ways to make my layout use 3 columns . I looked at the HTML file for some clues but i may have been in a hurry to look further . So i consulted Mr. Google again , surely my friend has been intelligent today . Google pointed me to a site that contains downloadable templates for bloggers . These templates can be later uploaded to your own blog site . What caught my attention was it now uses three column layout . Just what I've been looking for .

So for those desperate bloggers out there wanting another layout for their steriotype blogs try visiting WEBTALKS , a site that contains some existing blogger template with 3 column layouts . No more looking at the HTML file or deciphering CSS files , just upload it and the rest is magic . Just a caution though , when changing templates , backup whatever widgets you ave added to your blog , the change in template will erase most of them.

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:

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

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…
