Hiding Unwanted Python Folders and Files in Visual Studio Code

Hiding JS and Related Files While Working with TypeScript : Visual Studio Code

While I was exploring Angular 2, following their Tour of Heroes tutorial, I was excited to see it is using TypeScript. As we know, TypeScript is not directly supported by browsers. It has to be transpiled into JS code for it to work. Good thing, the guys at Google has come up with a startup kit when developing Angular application ( instruction how to get it here ). Now you dont have to worry about manually transpiling TypeScript codes to JS, the package will do that for you and a lot more ( BrowserSync, yeah). With that being taken care of, you only have to worry about your TS code. Because the transpiled files reside on the same folder, these files may cloud up your Visual Studio Code file list. I asked StackOverflow ( Google for devs haha ) and got a working solution, pronto!

Unit Testing in Python : A Primer

Automated unit testing has been around for more than a decade now. I remember back in 2008, a colleague introduced to our team the concept of MVP pattern and in the process the advantage of using the pattern in unit testing. The concept of automated testing using NUnit and mocking using NMock was also discussed. That is where I began to see the advantage of implementing Test Driven Development methodology to developers. Unfortunately, the company where I moved don't see it as such. Thus, I was only able to practice it on my learning time. With the recent events in my life , I now have more time exploring this concept a little further. A series of post will concentrate on this concept using Python and C#. Lets begin with Python.

October 21, 2015, Major League Baseball, Hollywood. What is the connection? If you have a great childhood and grew up in the 80's when new wave and disco music was the thing, you must have watch a bunch of futuristic movies from Hollywood. I remember a bunch of them and Star Wars and Back To The Future made the top of my list. Before I'll skip Star Wars for now, have you seen the trailer for the new movie due by December?

AWS Developer Day in Manila : Why we need more events like this?

Not everyday that you get to attend a great informative talk from subject matter experts. Last saturday, I attended the Amazon Web Services Developer Day organized by the Developers Connect Philippines (DevConPH) and hosted by iAcademy in Makati, PH. A free event that far exceeded my expectation. Information overload, so to speak. With the ever changing phase of technology and innovations, talks like these are very much welcome and much needed. Collaborations between solution providers and developers can pave way to innovations. Read on to find what made this event a fulfilling one.


Cyber-bullying : The "good", the bad and the ugly

Cyber-bullying is defined as the willful and repeated use of cell phones, computers, and other electronic communication devices to harass and threaten others. With the advent of social media, the incidents has increased in numbers and the victims does not even know what is hitting them. For the past years, we have heard of  depressions and deaths because of this. Yet, there has never been a strong drive to increase public awareness and promote support groups to help victims outside of the schools.  Campaigns and programs has never gained mainstream presence enough to make an impact.
