In the old days, web applications were treated as one. There was no separation between frontend and backend apps — at least not like today. The reason was that back then, computers were not as powerful as they are today. Browsers used to rely on servers to render the frontend and return it as simple HTML. This technique is called server-side rendering. These kinds of mindsets are what gave rise to frameworks like ASP.NET Web Forms.

But as innovations in computing increased rapidly, modern computers became much more powerful than they used to be. …

Few things in life are more sought after other than money. The attainment of wealth can correlate to a lot of things, either as a status symbol or the attainment of financial freedom. Of course, the reason money is sought after is because people need it to fulfill their daily needs. It is also the means of how we can get things.

But what if the wealth we own was received in a short period of time? Let’s say through either inheritance or winning the lottery perhaps.

Reflections in life are essential. More often than not, I find myself daydreaming into my deep conscience finding reasons for why life is the way it is. Why is there injustice? Why are some things left unpunished? If there is a God is he seeing all this and writing it down?

When talking about divine intervention to punish the unholy sinners two things come to mind, either hell or karma. We all know what hell is. Whether you believe it or not. But what about the second word? What is karma?

In the last few years, the global population has an increase in privacy concerns. After the Facebook scandal in the 2016 U.S election, people start to realize how valuable their data is. But is the realization too little too late?

Most people already have either a Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram account. So has your privacy already been breached?

The answer is, probably not. Having social media accounts doesn’t automatically mean that your privacy has been breached.

By definition, privacy means the ability of an individual to seclude information of themselves. Thus allowing said individual to express themselves selectively. …


I implemented multiprocessing to optimize my machine learning code

Training machine learning models can take time, a lot of time. Traditional models that use conventional machine learning algorithms like support vector machine or Naive Bayes might not take as long, but we are not going to talk about those algorithms. We are going to talk about neural networks.

You see, in the last few months, I was working on a project with a team. What was I working on? We were developing a real-time exercise evaluation system using — you guessed it, artificial neural networks. LSTMs and some feed-forward neural networks to be exact.

Developing web apps has become easier over the years. With Flutter it became very easy and fun. But to be honest, deploying it is sometimes a pain. Most services are not ready for Flutter projects being hosted on the web. Sure, some are but it needs a bit of tinkering.

I don’t mind tinkering a bit, I mean… Why not?

Here in this tutorial, I am going to share with you how to implement CI/CD on your Flutter web deployments using Azure DevOps Pipelines. And best of all, we are going to use Netlify! Why do I sound excited? Because…

Installing RabbitMq on multiple remote servers can be a hassle. To connect multiple instances into one cluster we must first install RabbitMq on each remote server. These next two steps will walk through how we can install RabbitMq instances.

In this tutorial, we will be installing RabbitMq using a Centos 8 Linux distro. The RabbitMq version used in this tutorial is 3.8.9.

Making software that serves more than a couple of thousand users can be hard. The difficulty is not in making the app itself but in how we make the app reliable. Microservices is a solution to messy problems like these. Instead of relying on one large server, we use a bunch of small ones to solve our problem. To elaborate on this subject further here are a few perspectives I have on the microservices architecture.

One Down, Many More To Go

In my honest opinion, one of the reasons I go with a microservice is the reliability factor. With multiple servers, this can be the case…

Lately, there has been a lot of fuss over Flutter. Some people call it the future, while some say it’s overrated. But I think it’s a good framework to learn nonetheless. The sheer amount of things that can be done with Flutter is unbelievable, including Android, iOS, desktop, and web programming.

Here in this tutorial, I’m going to share how to implement your Flutter web deployments using GitHub Actions. Also, we’re going to use Netlify. Why Netlify? Because, honestly, Netlify is very easy to use. Now, without further ado, let’s get to it.
