Hello React.JS – Absolute Beginners Guide to React

In this video I’ll walk you through how to create a basic Hello World application with React.JS.

After spending a few months learning React.JS and following all of the official and unofficial tutorials, I found that there was a gap in the information. My goal with this video is to bridge that gap and show you some of the tips and tricks that most of the tutorials don’t teach.

Introduction to the Python Debugger Tool

In this video demonstration, I’ll show you how to get started with the Python Debugger tool.

The Python Debugger (PDB) is an incredibly useful tool which can save you hours when writing Python applications.

This tool has replaced my former debugging process – which was laborious and not at all efficient. I use it whenever I’m debugging my code or troubleshooting issues.
