Dive into a fun, articulate tutorial where we dive deep into clearing mysteries of working with ReactJS, the powerful and simple Hasura GraphQL Engine. Let’s jump right in.
One fine day, I wondered …(more…)
I learned, had fun, sought crazy experiences, and even bigger adventures. Experimented at every opportunity I had. Met and talked to so many great people from different countries, ethnicities and cultures. I clicked photos, rode the subways, the trains, the cabs, the planes, cycled through the streets of 8th Avenue, admiring the great architecture, tried strange new things, made mistakes, made friends, made pancakes.
All in all I mean to say, US is a great country to visit and travel. Go for it, if you have the chance or the means. That being said, allow me to give you an all-access tour of HackMIT 2018.(more…)
Recently, many people have found my previous blog about Google Drive client Linux alternatives, pretty helpful. And have applied this hack as their way of accessing Google Drive from their Linux distro without having to worry about connection issues, login troubles etc. What if I tell you, I have found the near-perfect Google Drive Client, for your Linux Distribution that solves all the drawbacks of my alternative. YES, you are read it right. Read more to find out.
Hackathons are essentially hordes of people sitting together for 24 hours, working, coding and building together to convert their own newborn ideas that might solve complex problems. These small babies are later sold (Pitched) to the judges in the presentation round – to make them sound interesting, feasible and cutting edge enough to win a huge cash prize, some cool swags, stickers etc. All the while hogging on free food, lots of coffee and wifi. Yeah, that’s what we did as well with a small distinction that we secured the third prize at Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, Delhi, ESYA’s HackIIIT.

Google Summer of Code 2018 was an awesome ride in roller coaster that- almost regrettably- ended too soon for me. It was the fun learning experience I had that made it even more memorable. Giving me both the freedom to try new things and a steep learning curve and challenges that helped me to keep improving myself. A community that I genuinely loved to work for. Read ahead to get an inside peek on my 14 weeks of GSoC’ing and why you should be a part of it next year … One funny light-hearted read coming through.
I rarely waste time on introducing topics. Let’s get cracking. I am excited about this.
So, you might be getting lonely that I didn’t write at all these past weeks. About the progress of my project with Google Summer of Code. Well, I know you don’t. SO why don’t we move ahead with me explaining in detail how awesome my weeks was. Let’s get started, shall we? (more…)
Honestly, I have little experience in Go, I have never been inclined to use it much. As I am already comfortable, writing code in Python for about a year now. But that doesn’t stop me from learning new languages and technologies. Hence my utmost dedication to cure myself of the “Too Much too Learn” Syndrome. I went to the Women Who Go meetup in New Delhi, India for a Go 101 workshop. And that’s how I got to know about the open-source project, OpenEBS, and their exciting Summer HackFest.
This will be quick, this week I learned about PyGitHub, that implements and interacts GitHub API v3 and GitHub Enterprise APIv3 in Python and could possibly help you with any crazy ideas that you might have with repositories on GitHub. Want to check for files on GitHub in one or 1000 repositories of an organization/individual. Done. Want to make a pull request, issues, and other administration tasks through scripts that users with access to. Done. Want to check repositories for certain parameters such as last release, members both Public and Private. Done.
Does it seem like to you sometimes when you have a lot of free time and even if you have your hands dipped, dirty, and stuck in so many other pies (projects) that would take you naturally a lot of time to eat and finish (complete), but you still want to reach out for the next big pie (New Project). That’s me in summers and oh man, the pies are piling up. FAST and FURIOUS.
WELL, first up Happy Laughter Day that happens on the first Sunday of May every year. I know right, I didn’t even know it existed. This week had been full of activity as I am settling into my new project and making some headways regarding the same. Life couldn’t go any better as I met a very special friend over the weekend. I am excited about Google I/O #io18 this year, starting out on 8 May, it’s going to be epic. There is an extended session being planned in Delhi by GDG Delhi. I really hope it happens. The developer conf for Facebook wrapped up too, very interesting content and new developments that they brought to the table. Coming to the week of mine regarding Google Summer of Code 2018. Check it out.
I for one have been criticised, pointed out and in some cases applauded countless times for my serious addiction to customize whatever environment that I use for my system. I am sure many people also get it, just like me. If you love something with all your heart, you often feel the need to make it your own. That’s what this blog post is all about. I would like to write more than what one blog post could suffice. So just look for the tags rediscover to find more blog post like this.
Are you frustrated, angry and a little hurt that Google has still not released a desktop client of Google Drive for your favorite Linux distro? Are you having weird, nostalgic thoughts about shifting back to the blue screen of death or popularly known as the operating system, Windows? That sweet accessibility, comforts and smooth sync it provides. As your hungry soul searches relentlessly on Google for proper backup options on Linux. Friends fear no more. I got you all covered (Well, almost all of you).
2017 had been a busy year for me and the months of October-November were no exceptions. Here’s my experience of this year’s PyCon India and all the fun that I had volunteering, learning and attending this awesome event.
Projects are fun, they provide a steep learning curve, you learn how to work in a team and how to contribute, solve problems. That’s what I used to think. Until I landed my first big project and here’s my account of how our project really happens.
Heart pounding against my chest, my throat dry as a barren road and hands shaking in nervousness and anxiety. As someone said a name that sounded similar. All eyes turned on me, prying. As they announced “the next speaker we are going to have is Vipul Gupta .. (more…)
