This is a tutorial for how to use the VS Code Remote-Containers extension to containerize your development environment. First, I will discuss my reasons for separating my programming environment and why virtual machines didn’t work. Then, I’ll show a simple example using a containerized Python development environment. Finally, I’ll give you my reasons why containerizing the development environment fits what I’m looking for in a solution.
This year, I was a programming mentor in a robot building competition for high school students. Specifically, one of 11 mentors assisting 40 high-schoolers of the Park Hill Trobots team in the FIRST Robotics Competition.
In this blog, I discuss key lessons I learned as a programming mentor of high school students building a Java-based robot that could run, climb, balance, aim, and release projectiles.
A few months back, Aaron wrote about the high-level aspects of Accessibility-First Programming, its importance, and specific strategies and tools for applying it within your software development process. It included insights and suggestions for Color and Contrast, Focus Management, the use of ARIA tags and attributes, and testing strategies and tools – all of which are important things to consider.
In this post, we’re going to dig in a little deeper on three of those topics that I used on my last project: ARIA, the WCAG and what is needed for compliance, and some design principles of accessible design. We’ll include insights and further reading on relevant topics to help you better understand how to implement accessibility-first programming in your own development.
– Spoiler alert! Graph databases are a great option for storing complex and highly connected data.
– In this post, I compare the benefits and risks of graph databases ArangoDB, Neo4j, and OrientDB for a client project.
– Due to the combination of performance and cost, I chose ArangoDB for my client’s needs.
Both React and Angular are very popular front end development frameworks. In this post, I will discuss the similarities and differences between the two, and consider when one should be used instead of the other.
Angular is an open-source front-end development framework powered by Google. It is a part of the MEAN stack and is compatible with a large number of code editors and is considered for creating dynamic websites and web apps.
In this post, we will begin by going over the benefits of React and Angular, then break down the differences between the two frameworks using thirteen attributes. By comparing each framework side by side, it can help decide which is the best framework for your specific app project.
