Vuejs and jquery – a digest


Really, vuejs could totally replace jquery if it wasn’t for some of jquery plugins. But really as time goes, I am sure we can expect it will come.

If you are not that much of a jquery person anyway, this article should be a good intro for you : A Vue.js introduction for people who know just enough jQuery to get by

When money isn’t real: the $10,000 experiment



Adam Carroll talks about his $10,000 Monopoly game with his kids and how to teach finance management in a cashless society. Adam Carroll is quickly being recognized as one of the top transformational trainers in the country. Having presented at over 500 colleges and Universities nationwide, hundreds of leadership symposiums, and countless local and regional organizations, Adam Carroll’s message of Building A Bigger Life, Not a Bigger Lifestyle has been heard by over 200,000+ people. In early 2014, Adam successfully crowd-funded a documentary on student loan debt, raising nearly $70,000 in 45 days. The film, Broke Busted & Disgusted is due out in early 2015 and is already garnering critical acclaim. The mission of the film is to start a national debate about changing the way we fund college and not crippling 20 somethings with mountains of debt. Adam’s core message is we are all after the same thing – to relentlessly pursue our passions, live simply and happily, and make a difference to those around us.

Camera basics – ISO – Aperture – Shutter speed

Shutter Speed

The time the shutter is open to expose light into the sensor.

Typically measured in fractions of a second.

Slow shutter speeds means more light into the sensor

Examples of shutter speeds: 1/15 (1/15th of a second), 1/30, 1/60, 1/125.


How big the hole of  the lens is open.

The larger the hole, the more light.

Aperture also controls the depth of field.

Small aperture = large depth of field

Large  aperture = Small depth of field

Typically expressed in “f” numbers (for “focal ratio”)

Examples of f-numbers are: f/1.4, f/2.0, f/2.8, f/4.0, f/5.6


Artificially brighten your photos

Measured in numbers (no kidding 😉 )

Low number -> dark image

Higher numbers -> brighter image.

Con: as the ISO rises, so does the noise in your images.

Examples of ISO: 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600.

Why do I write var log

Most post in this category are unfinished, imperfect, lack the polish a proper blog article should have, very often they have typos and even some time unfinished sentences.

So why even bother?

Well, because life isn’t perfect, and most imperfect.

But it is important to get going anyway.

It is important to persist.

I know as I keep doing it it helps me shape my thinking.

Mostly I avoid accumulating ideas in my head.

When I publish it out to the world, it is one thing less I have to deal with.

When I share a video from youtube here I also know I can always find it it the future.

I don’t need to worry or overthink things.

It is out there.

It is for everybody to see.

Sometime is not perfect.

But I am not perfect. I am work-in-progress myself.

I am just giving you a gimpse of what is going on and trying to share the useful bits that could help you too.


That’s it basically.

Cool video editing technics

SEO on a budget

SEO isn’t hard

you need good content and good link.

That’s kind of all.

But when you cannot do any of these or you want to accelerate the process, might be worth thinking how you’re gonna optimise that process.

Finding good content on this is pretty hard.

This video however is really a neat finding.

So enjoy !

Should everybody learn to code?

Given the over enthusiasm for programming

This is a pretty refreshing take.
