Doing Front-end from Scratch?

The beauty of developing web apps using front-end frameworks comes two fold:

Focus

You don’t have to code the front-end part of the web app. This leaves you focusing on the back-end and its architecture (database, frameworks, patterns etc). All front-end frameworks come with the important HTML, CSS and Javascript components to build a full fledged app. Plus they’re mobile responsive.

Save time and energy on what’s important as a web developer. Continue reading Doing Front-end from Scratch?

Raspberry Pi Adventures – Chapter 2: GPIOs and LED

In the previous post, we looked at accessing the Raspberry Pi Compute Module via another computer through SSH. The Pi can do a gazillion things. It depends on how imaginative and creative you are.  For now, I want to show you something simple; lighting up three LEDs through the Pi using the GPIO (General Purpose Input Output). Since the Raspberry Pi Compute module is a bootstrapped version of the normal Raspberry Pi, we will use the CMIO’s GPIO pins.

For further explanation on GPIO, read this article.

What’s in the Cooking Pot?

Basically, we’re sending two signals to the 3 LED to go on and off 10 times in a sequence. What do I need to achieve this? Continue reading Raspberry Pi Adventures – Chapter 2: GPIOs and LED

Create a Bootable Windows USB in Linux

This is something I had struggled with: I wanted to create a bootable Windows USB drive using a Linux distro OS (Lubuntu in my case) but without luck I was unable to given the various suggestions provided on various online forums. However, I came across a solution that purely uses the CLI (command line interface) and it actually worked:

In summary, to create the bootable USB drive:

  • Format USB drive to NTFS
  • Create MBR (Master Boot Record) on the USB drive using the ms-sys tool
  • Copy content of Windows OS to the USB drive
  • Install when you plug in the USB drive to another machine
