My work colleagues decided to go with Golang stack for a new repo we are about to start. We did a mob session of FizzBuzz kata using Golang stack. It was really fun. I decided to finish off the kata by doing my own refactoring, and adding some more tests. Golang looks really good. I… Continue reading Weekend Coding Kata Challenge – Fizzbuzz TDD Using Golang
I tried doing the coffee kata challenge the other day, https://simcap.github.io/coffeemachine/. I thought it would be quite fun to revisit my first language that got me my first job as a web developer, Ruby. I haven’t done Ruby and Rspec for so long. It wasn’t so hard to update the Ruby version in my machine… Continue reading Weekend Coding Kata Challenge – Coffee Machine Kata in Statically-Typed Ruby
I had done the Yatzy refactoring kata (https://github.com/emilybache/Yatzy-Refactoring-Kata) a few times before. I think once it was in Kotlin, and once in Java. However, due to time constraint, I never managed to finish the kata. I think I was pair-programming with one of my work colleagues, and we only had around 90 minutes to do… Continue reading Weekend Coding Kata Challenge – Yatzy Refactor in Typescript
I wanted to check out different stacks recently. The goal is to pick an interesting new language and go deep on some aspects of it – understanding how to implement a simple web server with or without the language-specific framework. The main thing is to implement everything in TDD. I had a brief look at… Continue reading Weekend Coding Kata Challenge – Fizzbuzz TDD Using Haskell
My bicycle’s rear light inspired me to create a pen. In this pen, I’m exploring the LED/neon light effect that CSS can create using simple animation and box-shadow properties. The most challenging bit is to decide what colour the LED circles should be when it’s off. Or how to decorate the box shadows to delineate… Continue reading Simulating Bicycle Light Using CSS and Vanilla JS
What is Caesars Cipher? The particular constraint for this exercise is ROT13 algorithm (rotate by 13 alphabets), and only use upper case letters. Here is my quick implementation: The numbers inside the if statements of the code above are ASCII codes that correspond to the uppercase letters of the alphabets.
I was tinkering with a way to map Nav Components into a navigation bar in React by utilising map() function. The original code looks like the following: We can do an abstraction for the following lines of code: To do so, we can create an array of objects with properties of name and path. Let’s… Continue reading Mapping Nav Components into a Navbar Implementing React Router
