Like many of you, I live in a county that has a “mask mandate” for indoor settings in place for COVID-19 . It’s a little bit of a strange case because there are currently no penalties associated with not wearing a mask. Overall, our health department indicates that the majority of citizens are voluntarily complying with the mandate.
Despite this, there has been a new uptick in cases within the county. …
So you’ve decided to dip your toes into the world of Typescript in your React/React-Native app. Cool.
Let’s walk through how you would upgrade a simple button component from JS -> TS. Once you do this, you’ll get a lot of useful information from your IDE (assuming you are using something like VSCode, Webstorm, etc) when you are developing.
Ok, to get start, let’s see how this component looks in a real app for some context.
See each of those buttons for the months? That is our component.
What I’m going to show you here is a simple…
I heard this week that Disney is remaking the “Little Mermaid” and casting Halle Baily as Ariel. As you can imagine, this generated the all-too-normal wringing of hands on social media with pro-remake and anti-remake forces taking aim at each other.
I think I can understand some of the points on both sides.
For the pro-remake crew, casting a black woman in an iconic role (Disney Princess) that has historically been pretty uniform in its racial composition feels like progress. …
In this article, we’ll be going through the (very) basics of generating documentation from docstrings in your Python code. It is a bit of a grind, but after you do it once, it will be easy to repeat the process in every new project.
For our purposes, we will assume that you (1) believe in the value of documenting your code; (2) wish to generate docs from your docstrings and (3), have chosen to use Sphinx to accomplish the work.
A friend recently asked me for my thoughts on the role of art within the church. Here they are. Hopefully you will not find them an utter waste.
In my particular strand of the Christian faith (basically “evangelical/non-denominational”) we have historically kept the arts at a distance except for music used in worship services. As a result, we’ve been art-poor for most of our history.
The self-imposed artistic poverty has shown in our architecture (boring), services, clothing, music (I won’t even mention our attempts at movie-making — wow it’s been bad), etc.
While we sat in our boring buildings on…
I sat down with Raj (I wish I had a cool name like Raj) who taught me a number of things about Oracle and we were able to get LDAP connections working with cx_Oracle. Here are the steps you’ll need to follow:
We can only win as a nation when we stop believing it will require some of our neighbors to lose.
