In the past few days the temperature in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul has been lower than average. The days have been cloudy and rainy. Today the sun might peak in the afternoon and the temperature will hopefully reach 55 F. On the positive side the forecast for Saturday is sunny and temperatures in the low 70s. Hopefully will be able to grill and spend a few hours outside walking.
In this post I will cover interacting with MongoDB using Node.js via the Mongoose module. I will not say much about Installing MongoDB on Windows or Using the MongoDB Shell due to the fact that I have covered such topics on previous posts. I am using the Windows 10 OS due to the fact that several tools I use to generate the post are installed in this Windows machine. You can follow just as well if you decide to use Linux. The installation instructions provided by MongoDB are well written and are easy to follow. Continue reading “MongoDB for RESTful Service”
This morning I received a message from a discussion forum for the Graph Analytics for Big Data from the University of California San Diego by Coursera. I completed the course last year.
It is a beautiful day in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul part of the Memorial Day 2018 weekend. The forecast calls for very warm days. On Monday the temperature will be reaching 95F. My wife and I decided to go for a walk first thing in the morning. Today Saturday we got up at our usual time (05:30 AM CDT), had breakfast (yogurt, granola, blueberries, strawberries, bananas and a cup of milk with a shot of espresso) and headed out. As the walk progressed, we ran into several people getting their daily walk out of the way in order to avoid the high temperatures. Showered and sat in front of my computer. I will be working for the next four hours or so. This afternoon my wife and I will attempt a walk around one of the lakes in Minneapolis. Will be very hot but we are planning on a stroll and a stop for ice cream and water. Continue reading “CRUD Minus R on Mongo DB”
I believe it was Albert Einstein who said “Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking”. I like to read in order to learn about different subjects, mostly associated with computer science and technology. I also like to experiment with what I am reading in order to verify that I understand the material. Continue reading “Using the MongoDB Shell”
Earlier this week I ran into a description of Radix Sort. This sorting algorithm has been around for a few centuries (yes; that is not a typo). The algorithm dates back to 1887 to the work of Herman Hollerith (and yes; he was the inventor of the Hollerith Card Code for punched cards used in the past century).
This sorting algorithm is not the fastest, it requires additional space, but has been around for a long time. When you read about it, seems like it should not work; but it does. Continue reading “Radix Sort”
