Happy New 2016!

Hey, 2015 is over.

Did you notice that or you just started a new year just like it was an ordinary day?

Truth is: I was planning a few additional posts for 2015, but I found myself in the need of some rest from the ordinary things I like doing, after having had a hard time combining my daily job duties with my thesis implementation (yes, I finally graduated), which means that I lately got used to reading about front-end stuff.

Second truth is, I don’t know anything about it, as javascript evolves very fast. Keywords here for 2016, are:

So, in continuation of my Angular.js examples, I lately got myself exposed to some jQuery stuff, through the percircle project, but I there noticed I also need CSS for many reasons.
Generally, everyone says “basic skills in js and css are a must, no matter of his/her duties”, but one can hardly ever understand his lack of knowledge, without exposure to real world problems. Thing is, that both of the above are just baby steps on the front-e, so, Santa, please make my days last 26 hours, in order to extend my knowledge on front-end technologies.
In addition, please make sure the following ones will be accomplished on 2016:
  • deeper knowledge on Java Core
  • better time management and problem approach 
They say “better problem approach comes with experience”. I believe that better time management makes experience.
Ok, things seem to get worse day by day for us, here in Greece, but we ‘re not the only ones that are facing poverty (and I’m not talking for the disability to buy an iPhone). Let’s try and help poor people on streets, either by money or by food. For us, the cost would be like a coffee with a friend, but for them, sth like 2€ is many times the one and only daily meal.

I was about to close this post here, but I found the above image, while only searching for the “poverty” term, so, I couldn’t leave unemployment out of y wishes, according to my country. It’s a shame for this country watching so many guys leaving it and going abroad for a job, for a better job, for a better living, for a better future for themselves and their families. 

Hey Santa, also bring some employment and better working conditions to your sunny Greece, I’m sure you ‘re the only one who can do it.

Happy New 2016 🙂

Just Thoughts

Hello World!

It’s been a long time, since I uploaded my last post, but I had exams! Finally, I got rid of them yesterday, so I found sometime for myself, too; I decided to watch a movie that would make me think after the end, so I ended up with The Wolf of Wall Street (it’s going for Oscar).
So today, this post, as you already realised, will just express some thoughts.
The reason that I started with the movie, is that I just wanted to mention that we all make our choices and probably are responsible for them. A simple one, but I believe everyone who saw the movie, will understand.
The other thing is that I started a new tutorial for the Java Code Geeks community, which will probably be published tomorrow – it has to do about listboxes in JSF 2.0 .
Finally, I’m planning to upload to my github account -probably tomorrow- 2 examples that deal with simple GUI applications in Visual Basic.NET; it was about a year ago, when a friend of mine asked me for help, in order to implement some programming assignments for a required for his studies course.
That’s all for now, have a nice and proactive day!
