  • Web 3 – How to upload a file to the IPFS network

    Web3 is fascinating and uncharted territory. Recently, I decided to learn a few things about Web3 technologies. Even though I had some basic ideas about the blockchain and NFTs, I’ve never tried writing a program for Web3. So I decided to learn about Web3 technology and write a simple program that can upload files to […]

  • My thoughts on the PayHere data breach

    Yesterday a tweet by Duminda, a fellow developer on Twitter, caught my eye. In that tweet he said that he has been warned by Have I Been Pwned about a data breach at PayHere, an online payment processor in Sri Lanka. PayHere may well be one the largest and most significant data breach to occur in Sri Lanka, […]

  • Ideas that have been beaten to death

    Recently I was browsing Product Hunt and I was aimlessly scrolling down to see if there are any interesting ideas. I was seeing one recurring idea, popping up once in every few weeks. This is the same idea that I see popping up on HackerNews, ProductHunt, IndieHackers every single week. What is this idea? Another […]

  • Every organization needs a CTO

    Recently I was shown a product marketing itself as providing geological data layer for apps. A sketchy product at a glance and maybe scammy in the worst case. The developer is unable to provide direct answers and finding it difficult to provide details on how the product really works. They may/may not have developed some […]

  • I used to love Bootstrap. God, now I just hate it

    I have been using Bootstrap since it was version 2. At the time Bootstrap was an easy way to set up a responsive website.

  • Are you ashamed to share your email address?

    I created my email address when Gmail was still an invitation only platform, and I was 15 at that time. I created a short, somewhat funny, and hard to spell email address by using my initials and how my fiends used to call me at school. During that time, the email address seemed cool, and […]

  • Why JavaScript dialogs (alert/prompt/confirm) are not widely used?

    Recently I started working on a small open-source project side project with Vue, and I wanted to create yes/no dialog (basically a model) which will show a notification with a confirm and cancel button. So users can confirm or cancel an event. However, since I don’t want to reuse my code and repeat the same […]

  • Clones are good

    Replit was a service that I was using as a tool where my colleagues were able to run some code snippets online to learn some concepts which I wanted to teach. However, yesterday’s fiasco made me immediately delete my Replit account. If you don’t know what happened, in a summery, the CEO of Replit basically […]

  • Recycle Bin by Facebook

    Facebook likes to collect as much data as possible, and they will try to retain your data as long as possible. This is why you can’t delete your Facebook or Instagram account for one month. They are slowly opening up WhatsApp so the data you communicate with businesses are available for Facebook. Because at the […]
