APPS: The Competitive Market of Web Development in 2020

If you’re thinking of trying to build your own app then sure it’s a very competitive market especially for games and I wouldn’t recommend it if your goal is to make money. However, mobile apps are very important for most tech companies as native apps are still the best way to deliver a mobile experience and are expected from users.

There’s a large demand for mobile developers in my area (LA) where they frequently command higher salaries than similarly experienced web developers. I’ve seen this in other markets I’ve worked as well – there’s generally less mobile developers then web developers. If you care a lot about salary it might be a good way to give yourself a bump (check your local market for salaries of course).

That said, I’d say stick with web development if you’re still early in your career and you don’t actually care about which one you do. The mobile landscape has been changing pretty dramatically with cross-platform frameworks like React Native and Flutter in addition to PWAs. With a web developer, you get a more generalized foundation and can pick up mobile if you want later.

People have been saying that for at least 5 years straight. In my opinion, if the native is ever replaced, it will be by Flutter or something that closely resembles Flutter or Unity. Nobody is satisfied with the web experience on mobile. And also, nobody is particularly excited to develop in a legacy language such as JS.

Learn Python from beginning to advance

I’m gonna tell you “How I started learning python and become a Pro from a Noob”. Along with this, I will also tell you Career opportunities as a fresher in Python.

My Learning Journey: I want to learn Python for free so I have to Build a daily learning habit (4 hours per day) even utilize my weekends. My master plan was setting goals and hunt them. I have set 7 goals for 7 weeks!

My 1st Week Goal – (Python basics) As a beginner, our first-week goal should be- Get familiar with Python Basics like variables, conditionals, list, loop, function. (Be Curious and Explore things that you can do with Python). As I want to learn python for free so I started digging on the internet and luckily found a Python cheat-sheet that helped me a lot. Here is the link – Python Cheat Sheet thank me later :p

2nd Week Goal – (Sharp my coding skills) Solve 100+ coding problems. Reverse string, palindrome, GCD, merge sorted array, If-then-else statement, loops, functions, and python packages problems. “The more you struggle, the better developer you will become”.

3rd Week Goal- (Learn Data structure and Algorithms) Upgrade your skills and knowledge and Learn basics like Stack, Queue, Tuples, Tree, Dictionary, Linked List, Search (Linear and Binary search), Recursive function (factorial, Fibonacci series), Sort (Bubble sort, Selection Sort), and Time Complexity (Linear, Quadratic, and Constant).

4th (Explore Python Libraries) The reason why Python is so popular among developers is because of its amazing libraries that users can work with. Some most common libraries that you can use are Numpy, Scipy, Scikit-learn, Theano, TensorFlow, Keras, PyTorch, and Pandas.

  • OpenCV, a Computer Vision library, gives you the power of image manipulation! Pretty cool, eh?
    • SimpleCV, another CV library, essentially a subset of OpenCV, but has a much lower learning curve.
    • PyGame, a game development library, lets you make cool games.

5th Week Goal – (Learn Python framework) You must learn at least 3 popular frameworks. Read framework documentation, find video tutorials on youtube. Must start with Numpy, Django, pandas, and Scrapy.

  • Django- a web-application framework. from here you can Learn Django.
  • Flask (A Python Microframework), another popular web-application framework, a little more down-to-earth (and thus more flexible) approach to web app development

6th Week Goal – (Work on Python Projects) It’s the most important thing. Here you have to test and apply your knowledge. In 6th week, all you need to do is work on at least 3 python projects.

7th Week Goal – (Python Interview practice) Congratulations! Now you have what it takes to apply for any software engineering job in any tech company in the whole world. Now work on your soft skills and practice interview questions as many as possible.

Yeah! that’s my journey and it will definitely help you if you will do the same.

Now talking about Career Opportunities as a Freshers in Python  Here are the most common jobs for Python developers, their respective Pay scales and top companies using python:-

  • -Software Engineer – $103,035/yr
  • -Sr. Software Engineer – $129,328/yr
  • -DevOps Engineer – $115,666/yr
  • -Data Scientist – $117,345/yr
  • -Sr. Data Scientist – $136,633/yr

I hope this Helps!!

SCIENCE: Observation and measurement in quantum mechanics are dead?

Decoherence doesn’t require a human knowing about it. Spacetime represents our reality and converts virtual quantum information to physical/real objects.

Observation/Measurement is dead. Spacetime determines if a quantum wave should be physical for our reality. Spacetime governs our reality, by handing out physical states. Time dilation demonstrates spacetime scaling reality.

The flight/path/state of a particle/wave is known before starting. If a spacetime object (detector) causes the particle to decohere but continue moving to a final panel, the particle/wave is given a physical state from the start. If the particle/wave is to pass two detectors before the final panel, the particle/wave starts as a wave ..the physical state is taken from it.

Are unobserved matter waves, virtual mass in a 4D format – without time (don’t age/decay)? When it is given time it becomes physical in 3D and the 4D is used for time? The temporal dimension is where the fabric of spacetime originates, anything there is 4D by default. It isn’t spatial but mass can live there as quantum waves ..virtual.

A physical state turns a wave physical before it starts moving. It won’t be a wave during its flight.

4D virtual mass is unobservable. A physical state from spacetime is transforming the 4D to 3D + time.

Dark matter is unobservable, but also doesn’t have the ability to be given a physical state.

Does observation/spacetime swap quantum waves by giving it a physical state and a timeline? The wave function can propagate, but the wave doesn’t age until given a physical state.

Does this explain why we can never see quantum waves ..they are 4D?​

There is no reason for giving “observed” vs “unobserved” particles any special properties. At most a measurement can make the wave function for the position more narrow which seems more particle-like. At the end of the day it’s always described by a wave function. Wave- particle duality is a relic from a time where we were initially trying to understand QM.

Dark matter is observable through gravity. Otherwise we wouldn’t have observed it. I know that’s a tautology, but it seems it needs to be pointed out.

Sure there is, unobserved particles can tunnel, entangle, and be in superposition.

Dark Matter is not directly observable, you aren’t going to see a particle of it.

“Unobserved” / “observed” is not a well-defined property of a wave function. You cannot tell whether something was observed or not observed. Observation simply changes the state of a system to an eigenstate of some observable, which is just another state.

​Decoherence is the difference between observed and unobserved​

There’s no way to make a measurement so a particle is literally at one point, hence they are always in superposition over positions. It’s just a matter of how spread out.

And even if we did accept there was such a difference, the particle would be in this “observed” state for literally a point in time and go back to being unobserved. It wouldn’t make sense.

Observed particles are not in superposition (they are not in a state that is considered quantum weirdness), they have uncertainty because the quantum field still has an influence on it.

The observed state lasts from point a to b. It’s given a timeline. If it hits an object too large to be influenced by the quantum field it remains observed as it is part of that object now.

Einstein failed at a unified theory because he refused to believe anything could be without a physical state from spacetime.

Top 10 Reasons Why Someone Should Not Date You?

  1. I’m incredibly introverted – Being physically close to a large amount of strangers has given me anxiety attacks before, and I guarantee it’ll happen again.
  2. I need to know everything – I cannot stand not knowing things, if I have a question, I NEED an answer. This applies to science, maths, technology, history, all that stuff, but it also applies to people. How people work, what they like, what they don’t like. I end up creating mental profiles for everyone I meet.
  3. I act overly intelligent – This ties into my last point. While my crippling social awkwardness prevents me from doing this to people I don’t know, I relay mountains and mountains of information to people that couldn’t give a damn. It doesn’t help that I actually know what I’m taking about (my last point) and so I end up going on tangents.
  4. I can’t hold conversations – I cannot for the life of me, hold a conversation for more than ten seconds. I’ll ask how your day was, then you’ll say something along the lines of, “good”. At which point my brain has kicked into recovery mode. Recovery mode is what I’ve called the process, in which my mind bolts through every single piece of information I can muster about this person in search of a good conversation topic. More often than not, I’m unsuccessful, which leads to awkward silence.
  5. I treat everyone as equal – Now, this doesn’t sound very bad right? But think about what I’ve said in detail. I basically said that my mother, the woman that raised me and loved me for my entire life, has the same significance towards me that does someone I’ve never met. Seems unfair right? It is. Of course I’m embellishing a little. I love my mother much more than a stranger, I’ll just treat her with the same courtesy as anyone else. Respectfully.
  6. I’m a pacifist – I haven’t hit anyone since I was in preschool, so you really shouldn’t expect me to “defend your honor” with my fists if I haven’t used them in decades. I’ll try to calm things down, and be mature about the situation. Which seems like it would piss a lot of girls off for not defending them.
  7. I don’t like sex – I never have. Don’t get me wrong, I will lay beside you for hours, and do nothing but listen to your heart beat against my chest, but that’s because I crave intimacy, not animalistic noises and broken headboards. And that’s where most of my relationships have ended, I don’t have a sex drive, but my partners does. And because of that, I try, but it ends up feeling wrong for both of us.
  8. I’m not an athletic person – I have an excuse for this one. In the past I’ve had asthma attacks, heart problems, and to top it off I was in an accident a while back that left my left ankle extremely weak. To run for more than five minutes requires me to wear a leg brace, take a couple of pills, and have my inhaler in my back pocket… so no thank you to that.
  9. I am a time freak – I’m never late for an important event, and I’ll get very agitated if you’re late too. If you’re with me, and you make me late for something important, it’ll take at least till the end of the night for me to fully let it go. It’s an insignificant pet peeve, but a pet peeve nonetheless.

Eminem Teases Possible New Single Called ‘Walk On Water’

He also seemingly confirmed his new album will be titled ‘Revival.’

Eminem has seemingly confirmed the title of his upcoming album. After weeks of rumors and fake prescription ads popping up for the drug “Revival,” Em posted a mysterious image to his social media of a “Revival” prescription note on Wednesday (Nov. 8) and teased a possible new single off his highly-anticipated album.

The “Revival” prescription note follows the same design as the fake ads that began to circulate on the internet back in October. The note simply read, “‘Walk On Water'” and “Take as needed” with a website link at the bottom of the page.

If you head to the website and quickly examine the content, you’ll find a list of health conditions the prescription drug Revival is supposed to treat. “Tell your doctor about all health conditions, including if you: Have a history of confusion or poor judgment; Are allergic to midwestern tympanic stimulators; Are pregnant or nursing,” the list reads.

While Em hasn’t officially announced the title of the album or release date for “Walk On Water,” he’s set to appear on Saturday Night Live on Nov. 18 and should likely have some new music to share by then .

Check out Eminem’s post below.

Liam Neeson Won’t Retire from Action Movies As He Said

Liam Neeson says he’s now “unretired” from action movies.

 

According to Variety, Neeson was asked on the red carpet for the premiere of Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House about his “retirement” from the genre, the actor responded with a laugh:

“It’s not true, look at me! You’re talking in the past tense. I’m going to be doing action movies until they bury me in the ground. I’m unretired.”

In March 2015, the Taken and Non-Stop star said he would likely retire from making action films within two years time. “If God spares me and I’m healthy,” Neeson responded when asked how much longer he could star in action films. “But after that, I’ll stop [the action] I think.”

“I’m in a very, career-wise, great place,” Neeson added in the 2015 chat with The Guardian. “The success of certainly the Taken films, Hollywood seems to see me in a different light. I get sent quite a few action-oriented scripts, which is great. I’m not knocking it. It’s very flattering. But there is a limit, of course.”

And just a couple of weeks ago, Liam told reporters that he felt he was getting too old to lead films where he’s knocking out bad guys and engaging in large-scale battles, despite how lucrative the opportunities are.

“The thrillers, that was all a pure accident,” he said. “They’re still throwing serious money at me to do that stuff. I’m like, ‘Guys, I’m sixty-f—ing-five.’ Audiences are eventually going to go, ‘Come on.’”

For those who want to see more quality Liam Neeson movies of this sort, his comments to Variety are good to hear. The really good news is that he’s already got a couple of these movies on the way. The Commuter, which was directed Jaume Collet-Serra, who Neeson worked with on Non-Stop, Unknown and Run All Night, and is set to hit theaters on January 12 and is an action/thriller that takes place on a train. He also has Hard Powder coming up. That movie sees him as an angry snowplow driver who is seeking revenge on drug dealers who he thinks killed his son. Why retire when more movies like that can still happen?

Mind Blowing Psychology Facts

Here are a few:

  1. We look more attractive alongside our friends than we do when we are alone. Our brain essentially scans all of the faces in the group and comes up with an average more easily than if it were to process a single face. This is called the “Cheerleader Effect”
  2. The more people present to witness an incident occur, the less likely it is for someone to step forward and help. Look up the case of Kitty Genovese if you are interested. This is called the “Bystander Effect.”
  3. We attribute our own actions to external causes and attribute other people’s actions to internal causes. For example, when something happens in our lives, we may place blame on the situation and circumstances, but partake in “fundamental attribution bias” when we witness something bad occur to someone else ( we blame their misfortune on their behvaior). Essentially, this says we have no control over the events that happen to us, but other people are in control of the events that happen to them. This happens a lot more than we notice. This is called “Actor-Observor bias.”
  4. Maintaining eye contact and smiling breifly conveys warmth and competence. This also helps in getting a stranger to trust you.
  5. You can become more likable by addressing someone with their name during conversation.
  6. Telling someone they are doing a good job ( student, employee, child) makes them work harder.
  7. We experience cognitive bias when we meet someone attractive or friendly. We tend to base the rest of their characteristics on their initial likability. When we have to decide who is more smart, kind, and funny between two women, we tend to attribute the better qualities to the more attractive woman. This is known as the “Halo Effect.”
  8. If you are negotiating with someone and they give you a partial answer, do not jump at the opportunity to respond but continue to listen. Chances are even if they completed their thought, they will continue to speak. People pick up on this and will think you are a jerk if you use this trick without any tact.
  9. If you want to get a man to fall for you more, get him to do things for you. They don’t have to be grand. This works with simple favors like asking him to help you fix something. We tend to place more value on things we invest our time and our effort towards.
