MySQL database connected

Hi everyone! Recently I studied MySQl database and connected it to my Your Favorite Places project. Now all the information about places is kept in this database. It was not very difficult, but searching for free database hosting took some time.

Your favorite places – Angular app

Hi guys! In May I graduated from the IT-Academy courses in Minsk. It was a 3 months course which teaches you of React and Angular. I already had some experience in React, so I chose to make my gradational project in the Angular.

Here it is – a Your Favorite Places application. This is a website where a user can add a place of interest in any location on the map uploading his personal photos and sharing his experiences. Other included features are filtering by the author, latitude and longitude, searching by the name of the place, sorting places of interest in alphabetical and reverse order. For visual representation I used Angular Material library. Program sends and receives data from remote server. Authentication is provided by Okta authentication server. Main features are covered by tests.

I received a top mark (10) for it :) It is a little step toward my goal. So now I completely ready to begin to search for...oh my gosh...my first programming job! Wish me good luck. I will need it.

Creating a simple chat using Socket.IO

I made a first step on my way to creating a multiplayer part of the game. And this step is creating a simple server, deployment of it in the Internet, and making a simple application which can sent some requests to it and get some responses.

The key part of JS multiplayer is a Socket.IO library. And the simplest app you can made with it is a chat. So I implemented it using multiple teaching sources such as Youtube, documentation, blogs etc. and deployed it on the Google Cloud Platform.

Together with it, I had to take a look on Node.JS, Bootstrap, Express and other tutoring lessons to successfully implement this project. So here it is. Push the button, enter your nickname and join conversation!

Twitter API issues

Hi everybody! Last week I attempted to grasp Twitter API. The idea was to connect to preferred Twitter account, get its posts and publish them on my webpage. However, it appeared not as simple as I thought. There are a couple of obstacles, which forced me to put it temporarily aside and resume studying other JS topics. Let’s go through these issues in detail.

Geolocation stuff

Hi guys! Last week a great amount of work was done. At first, I relocated my site to a new hosting https://neocities.org/. The only reason, which forced me to do so, is that Neocities provides https hosting for free. And I don’t used to pay for anything in Internet.
Probably you don't know what all this "http and https" means, so here is a shot answer: "S" in the end of "https" stands for "secure". It means henceforth traffic between you and my website is encrypted and nobody can read it except you and me.
You may say: "Well, but what is this all fuss for? I don't care if somebody wants to read traffic between your bloody site and my damn computer. I am not a secret agent. I don't have anything what may interest potential violator”. Yes, to some point you are right. But such companies like Google and Yandex do care about your private data (or, at least, pretend to). They do not allow using their maps on your website until it does not encrypt data transferred from its visitors. And, learning how to install Google maps was exactly what I intended to study last week. So that is why I had to change hosting.
Well. The second step was to learn how to implement all this map code. It forced me to learn stuff like "callback functions" and "asynchronous functions". Both are used to display Google and Yandex maps correctly and additionally try to determine your location. So here it is. Push the button and see how it works.

Head First JavaScript Programming finished! Congratulations!

Thank you! Thank you guys, who congratulated me with so much important event in my life. Yes, today I finished reading the last pages of the really magnum opus of eminent author Eric Freeman "JavaScript for Complete Idiots" ”Head First JavaScript Programming” book. So what is next? Really, I am all agog to begin to write my fundamental coursework "Shepherd of the Dark", which I announced previously. But now I understand that using only my current knowledge will make my code clumsy and cumbersome (yet, I must admit, working). Therefore, I decided to get through another book from the same series - ”Head First HTML5 Programming” . This will polish my JS skills and make me to the next step - learning jQuery (it will be a little bit later).
So for now wish me good luck and may the force be with me=)
