(image source) I'm a frequent user of Slack and today I found out a cool way to customize the colors of your background and overall theme. I'm going to discuss how to make your Slack installation use a dark theme, but if you review what I have here (and do some googling) you can find … Continue reading Customizing Slack Background and Themes
(image source) I worked through a recent code challenge and wanted to write about it. The challenge was to evaluate a tree and identify nodes that don't have parents or only have 1 parent. The data would be presented to you as a 2D array and be similar to the following: 1 4 8 10 … Continue reading Algorithms: Searching an Unbalanced Tree
(image source) Previously I've written posts on both Depth First Search (DFS) and Breadth First Search (BFS) algorithms. I also wanted to write a brief post on Binary Search. Please note that I'm going to be sharing code in Java. Binary Search is an optimized search algorithm that takes advantage of the case when data … Continue reading Algorithms: How to use Binary Search
(image source) In my previous post I had covered Depth First Search (DFS) to search a graph. Here I'd like to cover Breadth First Search (BFS) and show the difference. Please note my code and examples will be in Java. Depth First Search goes as far as possible into a tree or graph when iterating … Continue reading Algorithms: How to use Breadth First Search
(image source) Recently I've been reviewing some Algorithms, and was specifically looking at ways to search a Graph with Depth First Search (DFS). I thought it was kinda cool and wanted to write about it. Many times in code challenges or academics you'll be presented with a situation where you have an image or a … Continue reading Algorithms: How to Search a Graph with Depth First Search
(image source) I've recently been working with Angular Material a lot lately, and wanted to highlight some cool things about it. I also wanted to walkthrough how you can create a material module that you can use in your Angular Projects. This simplifies utilizing the various Angular Material components since you just include it once … Continue reading Angular Material
This week, I went to an RVAJS meetup in Richmond and learned about Storybook. At the event, software consultant Joe Fehrman gave a really nice presentation that outlined the use cases and how to get started with Storybook. What is Storybook? It's a development framework that enables you to build your frontend components by themselves. … Continue reading My First Work with Storybook….and Introducing Chessie and Rey!
