Learning to code is hard. Software engineering, the field we most commonly refer to when talking about ‘learning to code’, is based upon a foundation of computer science and applied mathematics. And while it is true that you don’t need to be a mathematician or a computer scientist in order to be a software engineer, the another truth is that learning even basic programming concepts is hard for most people. In this article we will explore a little bit of learning theory, and how we can apply it to those just getting started with learning how to code. I’ll lay out some of the advantages and disadvantages of concepts like the bottom up versus top down approaches to learning, as well as some alternatives that are worth considering. This content is aimed at newer programmers, but these concepts are applicable to anyone who is interested in learning more effectively, even if the topic isn’t programming. I’ve been a professional programmer for over 7 years, and I started messing around with code way earlier. If there’s
To develop a real chat application, we have to put in place a real-time system of sending/receiving data. It will be impossible to do it with a relational database and Ajax calls. Thank’s to WebSocket and the library socket.io, it becomes easy. You can follow this tutorial with my repo Github: https://github.com/ngrt/simpleChatApp Technical stack Here is the technical stack that you are using for this app : WebSockets and socket.io WebSockets is a protocol that allows a bilateral synchronous exchange between a client and a server. In the classic web, a client requests to a server and a server responds sending it back the data. This system is impossible for a chat app. In WebSockets, the server can send data to the client, but the client can too ! A WebSocket is a kind of communication pipe opened in two directions. Socket.io is a library based on this protocol to make the use of WebSockets easier. The Javascript mafia Node.js is a Javascript back-end technology executed by the server as PHP, Ruby or Python.

As a general rule, here’s how scores are viewed Below 580: Very High Risk Anyone with a score below 580 will be viewed as a very high risk with a high likelihood of not honouring the debt. As such, many companies will not consider them at all. Those that do will probably require a substantial deposit and/or collateral. They will also charge you more in terms of interest as a result of the increased risk they are accepting. 581 – 599: High Risk This is a borderline area where lenders will tread very carefully as you will be seen as a high-risk client. Finance and credit will be extremely difficult, but not impossible, and when granted, will likely come with conditions and high interest rates. 600 – 619: Average Risk A score in this range is considered to be an average credit risk and you should not have much difficulty getting reasonable credit with fair interest rates if you do not have any judgements or listings behind your name. 620 – 649: Low Risk At this
Is a low credit score holding you back from getting approved for a loan? Do you dream of becoming a homeowner, but need to improve your Credit score? We’ve got you covered! Follow along for 5 ways you can increase your chances of approval once and for all. Low Utilization Makes a High Credit Score Your credit card utilization is a measurement of how much of your credit card balances you’ve spent versus your overall credit limit. This counts for all your cards individually and combined. If you have a credit card where you’ve only utilized 10% of your balance and another where you’ve utilized 70% the 70% utilization will still have a negative impact. Opening a new credit account to offset the high utilization on another card isn’t a smart move either. In the meantime, other tips to keep your utilization down include: Making small payments throughout the month Spread charges across multiple credit card accounts. Ask for a limit increase don’t overspend to match your new credit limit It’s important to remember to keep your
  Microsoft program manager Jesse Rajwan confirmed in a blog post, that the company is taking measures to ensure Windows 10 computers will always be able to upgrade automatically. And you might not like it. Microsoft is introducing ‘Reserved Storage’ with Windows 10 Build 1903. This will consume a lump of storage from your hard drive which “cannot be removed from the OS” and ensures your computer can receive the latest upgrade. Rajwan says the typical amount taken from Windows 10 users’ hard drives will be 7GB: “This will enable most PCs to download and install an update without having to free up any of your disk space, even when you have minimal free disk space.” All of which would be good news, except Windows 10 updates have been a dangerous mess for some time. What’s more, it’s hard to see how Reserved Storage helps. Those with fast, modern PCs will always have more than enough storage space to never need it and those with older, slower PCs with very limited disk space will a) not want to
