Hi guys, I'm a Django developer. Bound with knowledge on other technologies like HTML, CSS, Heroku, Cloudinary, DRF, GraphQL, PostgreSQL etc.

Below is my personal website.


And the github repository is below as well.

Did you use RESTFULLAPI method at the backend

Nope. This is just a Python API, that allows HTML, CSS, BOOTSTRAP to consummate from it through the templates.

I have another blog. I used DRF to create a RESTFUL API, I don't know much about using frontend to create a client server side.

Then show us your backend stuffs na

The blog has an API. that's enough backend stuff I think.

Don't get me wrong. I used Django to build the website. Every single post, comment, category is stored in the database (PostgreSQL). I used Django URL patterns to create API endpoints for frontend consumption.

Size your images correctly. Use object fit cover. Your menu doesn't toggle back off. On scroll it moves up a bit. Those were the little I could see in the small time I looked at it.

Thanks for this.
Truth is I just don't like anything designing. I'll try looking into that toggle.

Then about the images, I tried so much in making it fit for mobile devices. I think it looks good on PC.

Programming / Re: Github Issues by syluck(m): 8:34pm On Feb 16, 2022

I'm having this challenge presently. Downloaded Git bash, typed the necessary commands for repo cloning, but still confused how to use it. Even Github looks very lifeless to me, so I'm still sitting on the fence doing my projects locally until I can wrap my head around that graveyard site cheesy

Lol, I've been here where you are...

Don't worry with time, you'll get used to it.

And it's very risky having your projects locally without committing it to your github repository.

The basic tutorial on how to go about it.

*Make sure you have a GitHub profile.

*Go to repository page on your github and click on it

*Click on the "new"

*Then enter the name you intend giving it. With the description (optional)

*Then scroll down to where you see "create repository" and click. (For now, ignore all other options given. You'll get to understand them someday)

*You'll be then redirected to the fourth picture below.

Leave it for now....

Go to your local project on your PC.
*cd into the project you want commit to your github repository. (cd is a command for Windows to be in a particular directory. I don't know for other OS)

Note: The asterisks is not needed when running on your PC. Ignore them.

*run the command * git init * (this initializes your local project to github.)
*Then you run * git status * (this will show you lists of files you're yet to add and commit, more like showing the status of your files yet to accepted by github)
*Then run * git add . *
*Then run * git commit -m "first commit" *
*Then * git branch -M main *

Go back to your github where you left it....

Copy this command

* git remote add origin https: //... *

(it's definitely visible, copy the whole line)
Then paste it on your PC local project.

*lastly, run *git push -u origin main *

You'll get a success message if done correctly. Make sure your network connection is working. It uses network connection to commit.
Most of the instructions are shown on the fourth picture. What isn't there is just * git add . * And it's very important.

About the README.md?. You can create that locally on your project just like you're creating a new file.

When you have successfully created a new repository. You will likely want to commit new changes to the same repository.
Just follow these three commands accordingly.

* git add . *
* git commit -m "second commit" *
* git push -u origin main *

That's all for now. You'll get used to it with time and understand other instructions, options and commands.

ur blog is awesome.

I appreciate
Programming / Re: Rate My Blog Website by syluck(m): 4:08pm On Feb 16, 2022
I think the header + drop-down menu + footer are quite okay. But please, make improvements on the body especially the on the containers. That area did not capture my fancy that much. Focus on the material design and responsive web design as I assume the containers in the body area don't perform well with mobile views. But you tried! So thumbs up.

Thanks for this. But I really have no interest in designing/designs of websites...is that bad?
I just love focusing on the backend part.

Hello Guys

I'm so fed up trying to link my local projects to my GitHub account.

I have downloaded and made the necessary commands, read several tutorials on the internet and even watched a video.
It keeps getting me more confused.

I just need a clear understanding of how GitHub works, easy and precise procedures in cloning my local projects to my GitHub repository(screenshots will help)

Already my projects are intact (more of Django)

But to link it......I just can't...

Thank you.

Funny enough I can commit my local project to GitHub now even with my eyes fully closed.

Life of a programmer. There are stages you know absolutely nothing and there are stages you are like, I can do this...

Programming / Re: Developers Without Any Degree...any Hope??? by syluck(m): 8:14pm On Dec 23, 2021
Big hope forget the rubbish degree requirements. The richest developer I know he's a Blockchain developer has just an ond from yabatech. With his diploma he was a Blockchain tech lead at one of the biggest banks in Nigeria. Won't mention the name Because he can be traced. Dude is so filthy rich that he doesn't know what to do with money. Took all his workers on vacation and bought each one of them the latest MacBook.

I've been following you quite often on this platform. I like the way you encourage fellow developers to put on the good work. I appreciate.

The fact remains, I've been on LinkedIn and most tech related job vacancies I see there always has degree as a prerequisite and I'm into web development with python and Django. I just need that experience working with people before I dive into any other tech stack. I've been a self taught for long and it's really getting boring lol.
Programming / Re: Developers Without Any Degree...any Hope??? by syluck(m): 8:09pm On Dec 23, 2021

But you know there is nothing anyone can tell you and it would sound convincing to you.
If there is anyway forward, I would say you keep learning to work with the feeling and eventually if it gets too strong, maybe you could get the degree to calm that nerves but if eventually you get to find out that maybe it wasn’t useful later on. Okay then that would be fine.

I'm not saying I won't get the degree. No degree is a waste they would say. But my emphasis is on the necessity of this degree to the programming world.

How often do people without this degree employed or allowed to work on a project and getting paid?
Programming / Developers Without Any Degree...any Hope??? by syluck(m): 8:42pm On Dec 20, 2021
Well, I've been coding and developing projects for quite some time, I'm at "regular" level now. I'm quite so familiar with Django, Python, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, Panda, Requests, BeautifulSoup etc at the moment. My online portfolio is 60% ready. Hopefully I will launch it early next year.


I've been surfing the internet at my casual time hoping for a job I could fit in when I'm done launching my portfolio. The thing is, I do see most job opportunities with this prerequisite of having a degree. It's always tormenting because I have none. I hope to further my education(I'm currently an ND student, will finish by end of next year) with the little I earn from being a software developer. I always find myself wanting whenever I see that.

I really wish to know my chances of being employed remotely or full-time if I eventually launch my portfolio without any Degree.

Will my portfolio (the projects on it) determine if I can be gainfully employed? If Yes, what are those python/Django projects that can boost my chances so good.

I have my github profile too.

Below is my scheduled plans of how I want my software developer career to be like.

I'm also a resourceful person and I can surf the internet so good lol.
Coding makes me so happy except when that bugs comes in grin



Family / Re: Nigerian Women Should Read This!!! by syluck(m): 12:05pm On Jul 15, 2021
This argument skyrocketed to the point that it had to involve third parties.
Because you want your name on the land documents which you did not buy with your money.

Then out of the blue, your husband presents to you the divorce papers.


Is your husband's money not yours?
Nope. Your husband's money is definitely not yours unless he has you in his will as a next of kin. Or he has your name in the business he does or where he works (which is not possible).
That's why it's always good to be independent even when married to a rich man. Have something you can claim as yours without involving your husband's name. You can request money officially from him like a loan, make something out of it and then pay back that loan. All these things should be done on paper, lawfully signed.

He presents to you that divorce papers asking you to sign them and you're there crying and wailing!!!
Lol...you're saying "please I wasn't serious when I said that, I was only joking...please I still love you...".
No reasonable person would use the *divorce* word, *do you still want this relationship/marriage?* kinda of question in any marriage/relationship if there's any little arguments/disagreement if actually he/she loves/wants you.

The fact that you asked for your name to be included in those papers sounds so fishy. You may be using the Nigerian society as an excuse. This I mean, a situation whereby if your husband dies(God forbid), then his relatives will come and take over his property.
Yes, that excuse looks valid but doesn't sound okay in this situation.
As a man, what I will think is that, you either want me dead to have my properties or you want to overthrow me, ceasing my properties and absconding with another man.

Why would you threaten him with a divorce because he did not oblige to do your bidding which we know very well that he didn't rob you of your money to buy the land?
The money is his. He wants to buy land with his money, if he wants to include you then there's no problem and if he doesn't, there shouldn't be a problem either.
It will only be for a selfish reason that you'd want your husband to buy properties with your name on it.

As a lady, what you should be fighting for if your husband buys a property is simply to have your kids name on it (I mean his kids too).

Let the will of the man be rested upon your children. Your children should all have access to all his inheritance, like being the next of skin. Every sane woman would want their children to grow and have access to their father's properties except if that woman is selfish/foolish.

Having your children as next of kin to your man's properties and rich would definitely disrupt this Nigeria setting of the man's relatives coming to claim ownership of his properties.
Whether that child is a boy or a girl, as long as that child's name is registered as the next of kin and signed, no one can overrun it.
There's no law that's bigger than the Nigeria Constitution and it's allow next of kin.

You may be asking what about me? Am I not liable to have his things and look good? Didn't I suffer to push those kids out my womb and now I can't get anything?
Well, you had the opportunity but you stayed idle. You refused to work. You refused to use your husband's wealth to secure yours. Definitely you'll have his properties but they are not legally yours except if signed by you.

That woman finally got the divorce she wanted and went home with just her and would always visit the children cos she has no source of income to feed them. The husband was afraid too that the woman could kill him one day and take his properties. If the woman has something tangible doing for herself and buying properties, then this sort wouldn't have happened.

We men don't have those opportunities to marry rich women like the way you women do. We men most times marry a lady that comes from a wealthy family. We hardly marry women that built herself from scratch and moved to the top.
But y'all ladies get that opportunity always. Out of 10 women, 9 would marry a rich man. Out of 10 men, 2 would marry a rich woman.

Your opinions
Family / Nigerian Women Should Read This!!! by syluck(m): 12:02pm On Jul 15, 2021
Read an article on the internet about a man who divorced his wife because she wanted it.

Read down and see why she wanted it and also read my opinion about the whole matter.

In NIGERIAN society today.

We have greater numbers of women marrying wealthy/rich men than the men marrying wealthy/rich women.

Not that the majority of these women are poor or so...but most of them are just poor (I mean can't definitely buy a baby diaper from their own pocket for a month.)No offence intended.

We have other women that work and earn their pay but still they think that the money is not enough.

In general, a woman would definitely want to marry a rich man (This is not a lie).

Her reasons for that, we don't know. It may be for the welfare of the kids or for herself or family background.

As a lady, knowing fully well that you were either being married by a rich man because he loves you and sees you as his soulmate, mother of his children, etc. Or because it was an agreement or more.
You went into the marriage with just your clothes and a few amount of money in your bank account (may even be the man's) and nothing more.

You did not add a quota to his success: by this I mean, a lawful(papers) input that will ascertain that you're directly or indirectly involved in his success that made him rich/wealthy.

You went into the marriage and met everything sweet, nice etc. and you could get what you want, how you want it and all these fantasies girls have when there's money.

By the grace of God. Your marriage is still strong financially and is blessed with 3 kids in just 5 years. (This is what every married couple will want except otherwise).

Your husband buys you a car in just 5 years of marriage, then suddenly outta nowhere, you're requesting your husband to change the ownership to your name's.
This definitely brought about serious arguments. But later died down and you're enjoying your new ride.

All this while, you're either working in a bank or any other place, or owns a business you sell things but you're refusing to buy a property with your *own* money��‍♂️

Don't tell me your husband won't let you buy your own properties with your own money made out of your working hours and putting the kids name as the next of kin.

No rich sensible man wouldn't want that.

You're just an house wife?
Don't ever say this. Don't ever get married and dream of being an house wife. Even if you're not educated( I mean having a degree) You can surely convince your husband to invest in you by starting up a business for you. The money given to you may be his, but you can turn it around to be yours by paying him back his money with an interest even.

Yes, I know women get pregnant and push out children.

That's nature!

We can't cheat nature. Men don't get pregnant.

Don't use being pregnant as an excuse for being an idle wife and not working.

Pregnant women are always given *leave* before and after child birth. They are always being helped out because of the burden they have on their tummy. They don't work over time and are being dismissed early enough. You a business woman? Definitely your management/workers will see to any tedious task while you supervise only.

We've read the little and possible excuse women will have for not having or wanting a property.

Back to the discussion.

You're enjoying that car happily and taking care of your kids. Then again, your husband wants to buy land. And you're requesting for it to have a Mr/Mrs title on the paper documents. And you threatened to file divorce if your husband does otherwise.

Programming / Which School To Best Apply For Computer Science In Nigeria. by syluck(m): 2:41pm On Feb 22, 2021
Hello guys,

It's my three months of learning programming language. Never thought I will be this enthusiastic student software engineer this far.

There's this issue I'm having right now. It's about the institution that will accept me to read computer science.
I'm not likely going for universities because majority of them are after "Chemistry", "Physics", "Biology" etc FOR JAMB COMBINATION.

Literally, I wrote Jamb last year hoping to read "Cooperative Economics" in Unizik. I scored 230 and my jamb combination is "Economics", "Mathematics" and "Government". Still last year, I came across programming and the beauty in it and I lost interest totally in my initial course. Like every other programmers, I also need this certificate in computer science.
The problem is, I was never a science kid in secondary school and I don't have any related science subjects in my WAEC except Agriculture. And most institutions are after those science subjects and combination.

Like I said, I don't intend going for universities because I know it's practically impossible for them to admit non-science students into the department of Computer Science.
I just need to know if there's any polytechnic that'll accept me with my jamb combinations and SSCE result.
