Python is a fantastic language. The syntax is easy and you don’t have to do any semi-colon hunting in your code. For a beginner, I would say Python is one of the easiest languages to start with.
You have a great set of libraries to start off with and you can install a plethora of other libraries to add to your programming experience.
After a while, you might feel you are a bit stuck writing a lot of code for a simple operation. That is actually not as…
Writing text might not be the answer to note-taking at all — Nodes are
Are you still taking notes on paper? When you write on paper you are physically feeling all the letters that translate from your mind to the paper. I love writing on paper, but that content dies with the notebook and it kills you when you go somewhere and forget to bring it. Going to the cabin to read for your exam while your notes are at home? That immediately initiates another two-hour drive back home.
This is why I have stopped taking notes by hand even…
If you sit down and ask yourself what writing means to you, what would you tell yourself? Put your pencil down right now and look at your writing adventure. Are you satisfied, or are you looking to broaden your horizon?
Not everyone wants to take writing to a professional level. It can be a great outlet for your thoughts and ideas, and it can be a place where you connect with fellow writers. Not everyone wants to quit their 9–5 and write full-time, but there is always room for improvement.
Some investments feel good, though. …

Do you love or hate the iMac design? Most people find themselves in one of these camps, not in between. No matter what camp you belong to, the iMac is undoubtedly a historical icon — a lesson in design.
The 2021 release was no different. It split the tech industry into the same camps — hate or love. Fan-made concepts before the event showcased a new iMac that looked like a big iPad. We were so used to these renders that we expected the iMac to look like them.
What Apple presented came as a surprise. …
I started my Medium journey in January 2020. In April 2021, I decided it was time to bring even more value to my followers — old and new. To create more audiovisual content, I recently started my YouTube channel
For the rest of the year, the goal is to create, and release new content every week. I have a huge lineup in the pipeline eagerly waiting to get created.

Is happiness a state of mind? The Danes use a word for happiness, “Lykke,” to describe in-the-moment happiness. The feeling you get when you sit in front of the fireplace and drink hot chocolate without a worry in the world.
Harvard proposes that happiness is more than a state of mind — it’s a lifestyle.
You build a lifestyle from a set of action-based building blocks. These building blocks define who you are. Don’t you owe yourself happiness? If you do, why aren’t you working on it?
Is it true that we have to develop happiness over time with a…
My 9–5 job, teaching, and writing were my main income streams in 2020. It paid the bills while allowing me to save and invest. Why then is the $7.10 paycheck my most rewarding? A sum that won’t even cover a fancy coffee.
It happened while I was sleeping.
The first thing I did every morning was to reach for my phone and check how much money I made doing nothing.
It sounds too good to be true, and it kind of is, but at the same time, you can make money in your sleep, and it is a euphoric feeling…

if statements, and loops, and not know where to take it next.
The beauty of learning a new programming language is that it allows you to solve problems you weren’t able to solve earlier. You now have a new weapon in your arsenal, but how do you use it?
