The cold war against Procrastination

Why haven’t we done what we were supposed to do long back? Why hasn’t that awesome idea from the corner of your head come into reality yet? Knowingly or unknowingly , we all fight this war silently everyday (and lose most of the time) against procrastination.

Twitter Bootstrap: A matter of hours

Twitter Bootstrap is the most easy way to add powerful UI interface to your project, which would be in its naked form otherwise. Most of the developers do suck at designing and thus they find a hard time trying to make their hack look good.Spending just a few hours to learn to use bootstrap would really save a lot of time in covering up the underlying functionality with ergonomic interface.

Yahoo! Open Hack India 2012

Yahoo! Open Hack India, organized every year in Bangalore is a developer’s dream event, especially for university students like me, when you avail a lavish treatment in one of the finest luxury hotels in Bangalore, and simultaneously do what you love to do: Development.

This was my first time at Yahoo! Open Hack, since I missed the last one due to the misconception of the word: ‘hack’, which means ‘to build something’, in developer’s terms. The 5th successful hackathon took place in the Sheraton on August 11-12th and after lots of procrastination, I finally sat down today to write my experiences.

There are no kernel updates without risks involved

One of the most prominent of them being “Kernel Panic” right after ejecting an external hard disk drive each and every time. The only solution I found to this was updating my kernel. So like a Download and Install Typo, I just tried a few things to get the latest kernel.

Some of them being:

Beginning of Open Source Contribution

Google Summer of Code 2012 made my way into beginning my contribution towards Open Source Community. I had even had thoughts and made a bit of efforts earlier in doing this, but there was no motivation in doing so. It was going to be the end of my second year, and I wanted to get an internship somewhere, somehow, even if it had no stipend to offer. I don’t know why I had this false impression in my mind that Gsoc is damn easy and I considered it as my last option until the activities of this year’s gsoc started. Even after having missed the chance last year by a matter of few days, I was not serious about it.
