I continue pushing forward with the React course by Maximilian Schwarzmuller by O’Reilly via my subscription with ACM Learning.
Today is a nice summer day in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The private streets in the neighborhood where I live are being redone. Part of the work is on gutter drainage, some on replacing some of the curbs and finally a fresh double coat of asphalt. Today’s work started shortly after garbage and recycling trucks picked up their corresponding items. After the trucks left, noise and dust were all over the neighborhood. Right now all is quite. Not sure if they are done for the day. The final asphalt will be deposited on Wednesday. Continue reading “Styling React Components and Elements”
It is a dark summer morning in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The official temperature is 75 degrees Fahrenheit and the humidity 98%. Yesterday the forecast for the day was for thunderstorms all day today. When we have severe thunderstorms I prefer to read a magazine and keep all computers powered down. So far I have not heard rumble so I decided to attempt to write this post before things get ugly and I have to switch tasks.
My wife has let me know that the thunderstorms have arrived! Will pick up when they are done. OK, I am back. The thunderstorms lasted about an hour. It seems that the rest of the day will be fine. Continue reading “Working with Lists and Conditionals – React”

As of today Wednesday July 08, 2020 the world total confirmed cases and deaths are 11,900,855 and 545,728 respectively. Of course these numbers include reports from countries that are estimating (e.g., Peru and most Latin America countries) and countries (e.g., China) that for their political and financial gain report bogus numbers. Hopefully better treatments which will drastically reduce the symptoms and general public access vaccines will become short term realities. In the mean time, remember to wear a mask and gloves and keep social distancing. Continue reading “Understanding the Base Features and Syntax – React”
Once again, it is Saturday. We are experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic and it seems that days, weeks and months are flying by. My routine on workdays has not changed at all. I work five 2-hour blocks with most intermissions of about 15 minutes. The intermission for lunch is about an hour. Actual lunch takes about 20 minutes, but my wife and I sit down with a cup of espresso and chat for about 20 more minutes. When done we do the dishes and I go down to my home office.
