Happy Saturday everybody!
What do you think of Tesla?
Yesterday, after going to the Apple Store, I saw a Tesla Showroom and was just like “I have to go”! 😁
They had a Tesla Model X and ohh boy is that car beautiful! This was the first time I got to see the car in person up close, so I was excited like a little kid! 😁
I got to check out the inside and the cooled thing to was honestly the automatically closing doors lol ! When you press the brake pedal in the car they just close! Like what? 🤗😯
I also got to chat with the Tesla Representatives about Elon and his vision! Awesome little chat we had! They asked if I want to be out on a list to get one, and I’m like just give me a couple of years! 😁 Not just yet!
So yeah had a great little adventure yesterday!
Have a great day! 😊
"Anyone can write code for the computer to understand. Good coders write code that humans can understand."⠀
Clean code should be easy to read & can be improved by a developer other than its original coder.⠀
Clean code should be pleasant to read. Reading that piece of code should make you smile the way a well-crafted music box or well-designed car would.⠀
That's the bottom line!⠀
I have a problem today with my mlab database. I don’t know why I can’t connect to the database. I decided to make a new database but it keeps failing to connect. Anybody experience the same issue today?
I decided to go with my local database so I can fix the bugs on my portfolio applications. After finishing the bugs I went straight to client work and adding responsiveness to the website. It will finish soon too but there are still bugs that I should fix on the client websites too. Hoping to finish it on Sunday so that I can focus on my portfolio project that are due on Monday.
My girlfriend is in town so I spend today with her on a cafe. We usually go out and just work together and it is really great to have a partner that supports everything you do. We are working hard to reach our goals in the future and I believe that all the works will be worth it in the future.
I also love working on the weekend because for a couple of months weekend is the only time that I can focus on what I want to do and my own personal project. I usually balance it by watching my favorite shows at night just to reduce the stress after a long day of work. I have been into Ozark lately, it is a netflix original show and it has a really interesting story. You guys should check it out!
Do you love working on the weekend?
And what are your thoughts on work life balance in general?
Let me know down below?

Want to build a data visualization portfolio? Not sure where to start? If you’re new to programming, databases, APIs, and all that jazz, don’t sweat. When I first started getting interested in data, I would look at insanely cool visualizations and be like, “where the HECK do they get all that data from?” And the answer always seemed wayyy too complex, because it involved working with data outside of an Excel sheet. It felt like a roadblock. But, here’s the thing: you don’t need to know how to query databases or work with APIs to build a data viz. You can learn that in time, of course, but if you just want to get your feet wet and visualize data with Python or a software like Tableau – you can do it with a CSV or JSON file. Here are a few places where you can find datasets to practice with (p.s. remember to credit your data sources):
〰️ FiveThirtyEight and Buzzfeed make their datasets available on Github. You can go look at what they built using that dataset, too, and maybe find some inspiration.
〰️ data.world is like a social network for data people. Datasets shared here might be a bit messy, so they double as a chance to work on data cleaning skills 😉 Another plus: you can practice writing SQL queries right from within their interface to explore/join datasets. They also have SDKs (software developer kits) for R and Python, so you can work with the data in whichever language you’re learning.
〰️ World Bank has everything from education to financial data, and tons of it.
Know of other great places to get data for beginner projects? Leave them in a comment, let’s help each other out 👇

Grâce à cet atelier, les enfants s’initient à la programmation sur Scratch, un langage développé par le MIT à Boston, et permettant un apprentissage ludique et intuitif du codage.
Cette activité permet aux enfants d’apprendre à structurer leur esprit et acquérir de nombreuses compétences digitales.
Une fois leur premier jeu vidéo réalisé, les enfants mettront en pratique leur apprentissage pour créer et programmer des intelligences artificielles (robot) en mettant en place un « pool d’ingénieurs », comme au MIT.
Ils s’initieront également à la 3D et à la Musique Assistée par Ordinateur (MOA) afin d’avoir un apprentissage complet !
I noticed how underrepresented in general women are in STEM based careers, lack of #Latina / #AfricanAmerican role models and mentors in this field, and the associated taboo about programming. I figured I'd take a jab at things on my own rules and change this as much as possible to my power. The goal is to create a #network of #female#entrepreneurs and #mentors to help change this while providing relevant information and instruction to those who are interested and/or curious about #SoftwareEngineering in general. This does NOT mean that our male counterparts will not be included in this (don't be shy boys) 👨💻👩🏽💻 I'm currently working on a #WordPress site dedicated to this adventure! I will soon be posting tips/ pointers on how to get started with programming (from zero experience), ergonomics to keep your beautiful spine in tact with all this coding, tutorials, science experiments, funnies, dancing, weird food? I'm not sure. We're just going with this right now lol.
#STEM careers in general can seem terribly intimidating, this can feel especially true for those of us that aren't very strong in mathematics and the works. All this new jargon you have to train your ear to understand, it can all be pretty overwhelming.
A year ago I started working on learning #Java (my very first programming language). I can guarantee you I still run in to walls ALL. THE. TIME. But it is not impossible to learn!
Every senior engineer had to start somewhere 😅
So I try to keep in mind that this is all just a learning curve. No one just woke up one day and knew how to program by the grace of God without trial and error.
Two things I can't stress enough is to keep practicing and remember to always always always remain open to constructive criticism/ feedback.
With that being said...
Total newbies, coding babies, curious people, experienced and knowledgeable folks, general support peeps, whatever! I got you boo, Mama's got you. All inputs are of value in my opinion.
So if you're interested, stick around on this adventure! Recommend to your friends/family members interested in getting a peek into #webdevelopment#programming and more 🤗
