Recently, I started interacting with a project’s backend that accepts only encrypted dat — that is, plaintext is converted to ciphertext before it is sent to the backend. On the backend, the ciphertext is then decrypted back to plaintext. The backend was written with Java, so I thought about how to accomplish this with Node.js.
Positioning was one of the things that frustrated me a lot when I started learning and writing CSS, especially Relative and Absolute positioning. I think understanding what Relative and Absolute meant as a word in English in “relation” to CSS is what caused this confusion. So first thing I’ll do is to give the meaning of Relative and Absolute according to English.
What is Relative and Absolute?
Relative in this context is an adjective
Relative means considered in relation or in proportion to something else; Comparative or independent — dictionary
Absolute in this context is also an adjective
The reason I’m still here
Adaptation is the ability to adjust your lifestyle, schedules, sleep pattern, eating pattern and even character to situations or environments that are out of your usual comfort zone.
Motivation is the incentive or inducement that makes someone act in a particular way, in other to achieve some set target or goals; But the down part is motivation is just like fuel, you can run out of it, and this is where commitment comes in.
Commitment is the act of dedicating yourself to an act, a country, a course, a career change, anything possible. You are…
Since the boot camp started on Monday, it has been an exhilarating, stressful, collaborative, and amazing experience. I cannot say I am too surprised by how rigorous it has been, the Andela standard is way high and it’s not something you can just stroll past.
The Onboarding event which was on Monday was a lecture about the Andela dos and don’ts, the EPIC values, Growth mindset, Asking Questions, speaking to colleagues courteously and many more. Another very important part was the distribution of Jollof and chicken.
This has been the most fun, stressful and rigorous part of boot…
Visual Studio Code
Once you fall in love with your development tools, especially your text editor, it is always very hard to switch to a new one. The integrations you have to do to set up a new environment, the shortcuts you are already used to, the plugins that make development easier and faster, etcetera.
I was reluctant at first when I saw Visual Studio Code (VS CODE) and all the praises about it online, but at pre-boot camp, I decided to give it a trial and it has been a game changer for me. …
It is no news that Andela is the best technology company in Nigeria and Africa at large, it is also one of the best in the world right now. A feat that has been achieved within just 5 years of its conception. This wouldn’t have been possible if not for the Andela Core values that have been put in place, the EPIC Values.
The EPIC Values are very important traits and characteristics everybody should have, especially if you want to work with Andela. …
A change of Mindset
For a very long time, I always had this strange belief that some people were born with natural gifts, which is true. This also made me have this strange idea that I can’t be as good, and that is totally false. I then determined in my mind that since they are as human as I am and have no superpowers, then definitely I can imbibe a growth mindset.
A growth mindset simply means understanding that intelligence can be developed and you can get smarter through hard work, having an open mind, being curious and getting help…
The first solution was using the ‘HTML5 emailto:’ attribute, but this solution had three cons, one is it leaves my email open to the public which makes it a potential spam bank (pun intended), the second problem with this solution is that it has to go through the mail client on the user’s system, which means it…
The beautiful journey with Senpai Henry began 6 weeks ago and each week of learning up until now has been all informative and mind-blowing. All I saw design as was a plan of something like a building, a car, a structure or just aesthetics, but I found out that design is more than just all that; Design is everything and everywhere.
Also, I discovered that design has basic needs it must satisfy before it can satisfy higher-level needs, this idea rests on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Some of this hierarchy of needs are Physiological needs, Safety needs, Love and belonging…
Visual hierarchy refers to the arrangement or presentation of elements in a way that implies importance i.e. it influences how the human eye perceives what it sees.
I’ll be showing how the OnePlus mobile phone website obeys some of these visual hierarchy. Red boxes will be used to envelope each group to be analysed and also the numbers in red represents the order of hierarchy.
Let’s start with the hero of the site
The image of the phone will be spotted first because it obeys two laws of visual hierarchy i.e. size and color. The image of the mobile phone…
