What is nocode?

Nocode is a term that describes a method used by both computer programmers and non-computer programmers to build web and mobile applications (apps) using a graphical user interface instead of code.

Nocode is also known as, No Code, No-Code, visual programming. The idea itself is not a new one. There have been attempts, or rather what some refer to as early versions, at nocode tools that reduce the amount of programming required to build software applications in the past.

A few of them are Adobe’s Dreamweaver, Macromedia’s Flash (now Adobe Animate), and Microsofts Visual Basic.

Remote Life in the Covid-19 era

coronavirus-image

I am sure that you have been reading and hearing a lot about remote work and remote education since the COVID – 19 pandemic began. I certainly have. In fact, I’ve been hearing about and talking about the pros and cons of remote work and education for most of my IT career.

I’ve been in IT for three decades so doing things – work, education, socializing, etc – in a remote manner has been a part of my life for some time, so there is some bias just so you know. This article contains both my opinion and some facts.

Arguments that I typically read or hear for why remote work and education do not work:

Learn Javascript

Objective: To teach Javascript using code snippets with explanations for practical use.  There will be random consistent updates made. I will try to answer questions in the comments section.

Note: These are not theory based lessons. They are being shared for those that learn by looking at practical detailed samples, then doing.

How to use these lessons:

    • When you see “//” followed by words, it is because it allows – generally text and not code – to be displayed for the author/s and is usually an explanation of the code.
    • When you see “console.log( );” It is a function that displays output to the screen so that you can see it. In most cases exist to show that the code is working as expected and not required.
    • Most of the snippets that you see here can be seen in real-time in any modern browsers console.

How to sum all of the numbers in an array range

marathoner

It was September 2016 when I realized that I wanted to run in a marathon. It was something that I had thought about over the past year or so. On or about this day I decided that I would commit to doing it. The race I decide to run was the annual Marine Corp Marathon.

So I started looking into what I needed to do in order to make it happen. One of the first things that I learned was that September is too late in the year to enter the Marathon for the most part. In fact, I learned that it’s something that you need to sign up for in March. And even then, there were no guarantees because it is a lottery system. Continue reading “marathoner”
