I had developed a nice front-end website in Angular 7 for Kate From HR and was so excited that it was finally deployed live! However, I was having this strange issue where the routing was not working. The base url would work, and clicking on links would load the other pages. When I entered a url directly in the address bar though it would just bring me to a 404 page! Oh dear, it was bad times indeed. However, I figured out how to fix it so it's all happy days again!
I went on an interview today for a senior dev position at a large bank by world trade center today, and it was a great experience. They had an open floor plan and everyone had a super-wide monitor which looked pretty awesome. There were stocks shows playing on tv's hanging from the ceiling and people were relatively dressed up, but the people who interviewed me seemed nice. I probably won't get an offer because the one interviewer asked me TWO relatively simple Angular questions that kind of stumped me. I don't think I would have really liked it there for long but big thanks to this person for pointing out these gaps in my knowledge.
This is a short little post about choosing font colors when building software applications. In web development, if you don't specify a font color (ie the css property "color") then it will default to black, and black straight up #000000 black is really not a very good choice for a font color...
As a professional software developer I have had the luxury of being able to work on successful professional projects in AngularJS, React, and now the modern Angular. To me it's so funny how similar the two frameworks are in terms of the problem they are trying to solve and even the way they do it.
Sketch is a decent vector drawing program for mac and windows, but it has a pretty BS licensing policy that says any individual must buy a separate license for every computer he or she owns (check here if you don't believe me). Once I discovered that I said to myself, "yeah, fuck that" and proceeded to look for another vector drawing application. However, I found this nifty little github repo containing an application that will run Sketch as if it's been licensed! 😈
