So finally after a few days, I can see the ripples in the sea of my working time getting stagnant. I had a few fierce engagements which did not allow me even open the lid of my laptop(had issues with my birth certificate, passport appointment etc.). Although I managed to work everyday in tiny fragments this week yet I am encapsulating all up in this post as the work is not much.
So I began with Django which became the apple of my eye after Jasvir’s presentation(sometimes I feel I am moved too easily but this time I researched and then moved astray :P). I really hold the view that people tend to hate the things they don’t understand. So I began with the much recommended and hyped “poll app”. Today I did the following things:
- installed Python 2.7.5+
- installed Django version: 1.8.dev20140823121328 from GitHub as under:
git clone git://github.com/django/django.git django-trunk sudo pip install -e django-trunk/
because I failed to download get-pip.py despite trying many a time.
Tomorrow I will begin with the poll app. Meanwhile I have also joined the $2500 course LinuxFoundationX: LFS101x Introduction to Linux for free on edX(search GD to hunt for more :P). Although I think I have a quite a decent acquaintance with Linux by now yet the learning, this way, is a fun indeed! I spare a little time for this course as this is self-paced and I try to go for this when I feel like course-rotating.
I have ended up with:
The chapter 01 consisted of the following:
- The Linux Foundation is a nonprofit consortium dedicated to fostering the growth of Linux.
- The Linux Foundation training is for the community and by the community. Linux training is distribution-flexible, technically advanced, and created with the leaders of the Linux development community.
- There are three major distribution families within Linux: Fedora, SUSE and Debian. In this course we will work with representative members of all of these families throughout.
The sort of video lectures in the course make learning a thing to crave for a devoted learner. And the “tool” in the title of the post is my “laptop”. 😛
