    Programming Languages I Use

    I have dabbled in programming and app development for years but I have recently been getting many questions from readers asking me what languages and software I use for programming so I thought I would break it down for everyone and maybe expand on it more in later posts. Languages I know Python To start with I have to say I am mostly fluent in Python. Python is the programming language I fell in love with when I was in college and have been using it ever since. While I understand there are different languages for different things depending on the task I try to everything thing in this language because I am very familiar and comfortable with this language. Python while less structure then most makes it at times easier and simpler to use I know many programmers that prefer a more structured language for programming. HTML I am very fluent in HTML I would consider myself an expert in this language. I am defiantly very proficient at HTML. I use my HTML skills every day just dealing with the daily web tasks that I do every day for my website and dealing with tasks from customers from our parent company SLJ Digital Media. I would say HTML is a language I think everyone should have at least one class of along with one class of a programming language. SQL I use many versions of SQL I use Microsoft SQL, Oracle MySQL, and PHPAdmin. Database programming is another skill that I think anyone who wants to get into programming should have its essential. Anytime you collect data using a program you are going to need to store it somewhere and most likely in a database. The very popular WordPress platform is all SQL based and anyone who wants to...

    The best gaming PCs of 2019

    Gaming is a huge part of every day life for many people around the world, especially gamers, of course. In a modern climate where technological advancements are rapidly progressing, players of games are certainly spoilt in comparison to say twenty odd years ago when, arguably, not many people could have foreseen the huge growth shown since then. Frankly, it’s been amazing. The vast array of consoles on offer is highly impressive also, but choosing the best fit for you and your gaming requirements isn’t always simple. When it comes to PC gaming, for example, the choice can be overwhelming with so many high quality offerings available.

Of course some enthusiasts enjoy building their very own PC but for others it is another hassle they simply would rather avoid. Buying the readymade, good-to-go product with the guarantee that it’ll run smoothly with no hitches is worth the extra funds.

  • We all dreamed of having a robot that would help us to solve problems and challenges. Today this dream also concerns opportunities for learning. Robots have achieved incredible features and functionality with the development of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Now children’s dreams are much easier to turn into reality than ever before. After all, now the artificial tutor can become a reliable friend and mentor to them. Even though robots are not bad at helping children with simple tasks in the exact sciences, they are not yet ready for the subtleties of the humanitarian sphere. Taking into account a variety of common school assignments like case analysis, summaries, reviews of books, plays or exhibits, plans for conducting projects, feature stories, slide presentations, micro-themes, etc. – only a few of them could be accomplished with the help of robot tutors. Even the most developed robot cannot create a well-polished article, make creative suggestions, and provide a student with a judgment about a particular situation. Therefore, for some complex and creative challenges, human help is still needed. For such tasks like accomplishing of descriptive and argumentative essays, lab reports or literature reviews one can easily find help here via search query “write my essay” and ask to write, make formatting or edit the existed papers. Once a student has got positive feedback from a professional writer about his or her ideas on a particular topic, it makes him feel more confident about his skills. It is a key feature of human-human interaction, which is not possible between human and robots yet. But still, how robots will affect education in general?

    How to Choose the Perfect Gaming Chair

    Because of technology, you spend almost the entire day seated in front of your computer either working or playing. You spend so many hours sitting that an uncomfortable chair will keep you from enjoying your games or focusing on work. If you have a gaming PC, then most likely you have already thought of buying a gaming chair. As a gamer, you might spend many hours playing Devil May Cry 5, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, or some other video game. If your chair is uncomfortable, you would have to stand and stretch from being sore because of sitting for so long. Below are some tips to help you choose which gaming chair would best suit you. Comfort When choosing a gaming chair, your priority should always be the comfort since you spend hours on end sitting on it. It’s comfortable enough when you can enjoy your games without getting sore. To provide proper comfort, a gaming chair should have the following: Headrest: After playing long hours, you would need to take a break, so having a place to rest your head is always good. It’s better if the chair is able to lean back. It will keep you from getting a stiff neck and help you maintain good posture. Armrest: It’s necessary for gaming chairs to have an armrest. It supports your arms and helps them relax while you’re button mashing or clicking on objects when playing the games you love. It also provides a proper place for your arms so they don’t get tired or ache after playing long hours. Back support: For maximum comfort, back support is essential for any gaming chair. As you play, you need a comfortable place on which to rest your back so you don’t have to worry about getting backaches from sitting...
  • As the world’s leading economies struggle to confront the threat of climate change by reducing emissions and investing in renewable, carbon-neutral energy sources, efficiency has become a key concept for industries around the world. While a fully carbon-neutral or even carbon-negative future is still a long way, off, reducing the amount of energy required for a variety of industrial applications is on the most important short-term developments that can buy time and curb climate change’s worst impacts. Technological innovations that improve energy capture and efficiency have been an essential part of this process, and here are just a few ways that green technology is helping to make industries better able to conserve and recycle energy. Cool Roofs Most traditional construction techniques use asphalt roofing or shingles to keep the water out. But these dark colours suck up huge amounts of heat, which in turn drives up cooling costs in the building itself. Cool roofs use lighter shades of shingle or roofing material to make the roofs themselves more reflective, so the roof retains less heat and the house stays naturally cooler. Given that many factories and plants occupy huge square footages, have vast roofs, and require careful climate controls, cool roofs are a cheap way for manufacturers to reduce their carbon footprint. Smart Glass Windows are designed to let in heat and light during the colder months, but in the heat of summer, glass’s ability to conduct heat, light, and radiation becomes a drawback. Blinds, awnings, and shades are used to keep light out, but these solutions are often imperfect. Smart glass is designed to automatically “dim” the amount of light being let in. Experts suggest that smart glass coated skyscrapers could require twenty-five percent less heating, ventilation, and air conditioning energy than skyscrapers using conventional glass.
