All have started with var…

Plain Javascript has only a var keyword that allows you to define a variable.

Here is an example of how we can use it:

Will the last line of code passe or fail?

Well, there is no problem with the code since the var keyword is not block-scoped. This means there is no scope for variables that are declared with var, whether they are declared inside or outside of a loop or a condition.

To resolve this problem, you need to declare you variable with let or const.


‘Let’ comes to solve the issue

The let statement declares a block-scoped local variable, optionally initializing it to a value. …

As Google says Angular is one framework that you can use for both mobile and desktop professional apps. Although React JS is the most popular among developers, still an Angular app is more powerful since it comes with a structure and some standards that every Angular developer should respect to make the application working. For an enterprise application, it’s a piece of good news since every Angular developer can land and understand quickly an Angular project.

I’ve been always dreaming of having my cat. But, since I was always moving for my studies purposes, I couldn’t get a cat.

After getting my first full-time job, I right away got a cat, that was just a dream that I’ve finally realized. I couldn’t stop right there since I’m so crazy about them so I finally got 3 other cats, and I’m living with them for years now.

Through those years cats thought me some surprising things that I find important about life and wanted to share those things with you.

Layout code generator demo

This is just mind-blowing…

AI is changing our lives and even the domain’s life. Imagine that you can describe your button or header and have the code generated for you in a blink of an eye ≧☉_☉≦.

@SherifShameen has recently twitted about the layout generator he developed with GPT-3. What shocking news for the web world and NLP world.


What’s GPT-3?

GPT-3 is the new OpenAI’s language generator.

OpenAI first described GPT-3 in a research paper published in May. But last week it began drip-feeding the software to selected people who requested access to a private beta. For now, OpenAI wants outside developers to help it explore what GPT-3 can do, but it plans to turn the tool into a commercial product later this year, offering businesses a paid-for subscription to the AI via the cloud. …

When I discovered Medium, I was like someone who discovered a big box with a lot of gold in it. I loved it so much.

I love reading, finding out that I am allowed only to read 3 stories a month was so disappointing to me. To read an unlimited number of articles you need to become a Medium member.

I wasn’t sure that I’ll like it and that I’ll read every day to become a member. So I cheated, and read whatever I want without being a member at the beginning.

I lived with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) for years. It’s some moments where you can’t control your thoughts your emotions and your energy. GAD is defined as below by Psychology today:

“Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is a chronic state of severe worry and tension, often without provocation. Those with GAD regularly anticipate disaster, often worrying excessively about health, money, family, or work.”

— Psychology today

From what I have experienced, the hardest point was accepting and assuming that I have GAD. Although, I knew that I’m not okay for years. I have never thought of me having an anxiety disorder. As an active engineer and ambitious woman in life, I’ve always thought that there are only problems with rational solutions. …


Quick tutorial: steps to follow to set up PrimeNG in your Web App

How to use PrimeNG in Angular 9 App
How to use PrimeNG in Angular 9 App

What’s PrimeNG (skip if you know already ;))

PrimeNG is a rich set of open-source native Angular UI components. That means for any UI component you need, you have a library ready to use just for you. Some examples would be: a calendar, a table, an autocomplete input …etc.

- The + of using PrimeNG

This accelerates development and keeps all angular developers using the same components over the world except for really special client demands (we then create a custom component). This makes new code handling super fast since all developers are familiar with PrimeNG.

- Other alternatives to PrimeNG?

Bootstrap, Angular Material, Material design, Material, PrimeFaces.

The most important thing is to use only one single library for all components. I’ve seen projects with a mixture of this is not really professional. The code is always beautiful when it’s homogenous and clean. …

This experience is one of the most teaching ones I had in life. It profoundly marked my personality and boost my life.

The thing that I really want to share with you today is the lessons I’ve learned and how I succeded.

Where the story began …

I was 16 years old. My mother’s friend is a French teacher and got some tickets for a summer camp to learn English for 10 days. She was looking for students who are interested in and got the required conditions.

The condition was having already good marks at school. I was a good student, at that time I thought that it’s all about super marks, and being the first. Although my philosophy in life has changed right now but thankfully at that time, that was the reason why I got accepted. …

Things you need to understand to get along with dependencies problems

Where the story begins …

Well, the story starts with a railway network application where we used Angular Front-end Framework. The Angular application is packaged as a private npm package. Let me explain it. Let’s imagine, npm as a big software registry where developers from anywhere use it to share and borrow open source packages as well as private packages too.

Since we can borrow as much as we need of packages. We need something to help us install those packages as well as identify installed packages for a given application. And that when package.json come to the stage ヾ(⌐■_■)ノ♪.

What is a package.json file?

The package.json is simply a file that contains mainly information about the application and its version and all packages and dependencies it needs to make the application working. Here is an example of a package.json file from npm…

I was working on a computer vision problem, and I needed to parse an XML file. I found Untangle as a quick and easy library that gets the job done in almost no time. So I wanted to share this with you !

Untangle is python library under the MIT license that can easily convert an XML file to a python object.

Install

To install the library, it’s recommended to use pip which installs automatically the latest stable release with the command :

pip install untangle

How does it work ?

We just need to pass a string or a filename or an URL of the XML file as a parameter to the parse function to get a Python object as an output. …
