Interesting Ubuntu Version Names

After several millions of second from my last post, I'm back. Thus, this post is related to the first geeky stuff I did after coming back from my 5 months of "forced exile" in the US (stuffs that does not involve my work in the office). Once again , Im playing with my Ubuntu, and the first thing I have to do is to update it. which brought me to realizing that I have the 8.10 version and in a few months more they will be releasing the 9.10 version. New Ubuntu version always comes with a new interesting name. Read the list below and be acquainted with Ubuntus version names.

4.10 Warty Warthog
5.04 Hoary Hedgehog
5.10 Breezy Badger
6.06 Dapper Drake
6.10 Edgy Eft
7.04 Feisty Fawn
7.10 Gutsy Gibbon
8.04 Hardy Heron
8.10 Intrepid Ibex
9.04 Jaunty Jackalope
9.10 Karmic Koala

Funny, they always brand Ubuntu as the Linux for human being but their version names are always referring to animals. Maybe come version 10.10 they will name it after me , Marvin 'd Martian.

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
