Mostly, it has been influenced by Hollywood, news media and pop-culture. People normally associate it with some sort of black magic using computers, that enables
365 Days of code: Week 7 This week I left almost every other thing and deeply focused only on the certification course M220JS from MongoDB University. Continuing from the previous post, I will be documenting the changes I make to the mflix-js project as part of the assessment for the certification. This week, as they
365 Days of code: Week 6 Last month I finished M001: Mongo DB Basics (with 100% score, yeah it’s that easy) from MongoDB University. This month it’s time for the next relevant level, M220. Now this course comes in three variants: Java, JS and Python. I decided to go with JS as I was already

As with any system adopting the continual improvement paradigm, I have decided to make some changes to blog post frequency. I will be coding pretty much every day but blog only weekly, summarizing only the most interesting things I implemented over the last week. This will help to maximize the time spent in writing code and also improve the quality of posts.
Hacking GitHub History will be kind to me for I intend to write it. Winston Churchil On the 8th of Jan, I did write some code that I couldn’t push to Github. I got too drunk at night and what I intended to be a short power nap turned into a deep slumber till the
