I was bored to write my college assignment so I wrote a tool that lets you turn text content to an image that looks like habdwriting😂

GitHub logo saurabhdaware / text-to-handwriting

So your teacher told you to upload written assignments on ERP? Hate writing assigments? This tool will help you convert your text to handwriting xD

This is what the output looks like right now
Sample output image from the app that almost looks like it is the picture clicked after writing on a paper with pen

I just had a virtual on-site final interview and I think I crushed it! Each interview with this company and each new person I’ve met has made me more and more excited about the possibility of working there.

I’ll hear back next week. 🤞🏼❤️

I released two major updates for my CMS and with that I was able to finish the upgrade for my portfolio. The best thing: the rss feed now includes the entire article as HTML. This means I no longer have to edit the post on this platform and can just post right away. Less work for me 😁

I am discovering more about Android system API functions from AOSP (Android Open Source Project) and have the opportunity to use them for a client that develops their own Android devices.
Currently making our own "startup wizard" that lets a user set some basic device settings on first boot (language, wifi, timezone, ...).

Thanks ! I created this website with Gatsby and Tailwind CSS, I tried to make it mobile friendly (with the Chrome devtools). What are those issues ?

Vertical scroll on mobile. I think the footer is the issue.

Here in Bangladesh, there's no centralized data portal or access to track general mass users. The bigger community don't really use updated versions of Android too which makes it harder to develop applications for end-users. Plus they don't really comprehend videos from Vox, Kurzgesagt animations, WHO instructions - none of them were in the native language. Lack of content in native language about COVID-19 created mass misinformation - which is why I took an initiative, developed a full-stack app, web, backend, data portal for the govt authority to check & cover up all the COVID-19 cases in real-time. Slack CEO & Flickr Co-Founder Stewart made free upgrades to my slack workspace too, a lot of others offered to help & collab - leading me to fast-track the development in just 7 days. It was a big win for me this week I'd say, was unsure if I could pull this off with just 2 other devs but I did. <3

This week I worked to develop my own site icodeeveryday.com/ . This is just 3 days young and I hope it will grow. I am re-learning about the cookie, local storage, session storage and session in detail.
The review is the best thing I need at the moment to raise traffic and improve quality.

I learned how to combine kedro catalogs and submitted it as a feature request.

[KED-1512] Ability to add catalogs together #302

Description

I am would like to request the ability to add two DataCatalog objects together to get the addition of the two. This will improve the ability to reuse pipelines and catalogs from existing projects.

Example

Let's say I already have two DataCatalogs loaded in c1 and c2. I would like the ability to add them together.

full_catalog = c1 + c2

Context

I am trying to combine pipelines from two different projects. Kedro natively gives me the ability to add the pipelines together, but not the DataCatalog

Possible Implementation

Create a new DataCatalog using dictionary unpacking from the individual DataCatalogs. In the case of duplicates the second catalog will take preference.

def __add__(self, other):
   DataCatalog({**self.__dict__['_data_sets'], **other.__dict__['_data_sets']})
