I made this abstract sketch in the first year of college and wanted to share it on the Wall for quite some time…
Ganesha (Sanskrit: गणेश, Gaṇeśa), also known as Ganapati and Vinayaka, is the Hindu deity of wisdom and the remover of all obstacles. Here is my sketch.
It has been a long time since I updated the Wall. As usual, I was quite busy with college work and my new project, called ng-notes. It is a comprehensive web app for taking notes and quickly capturing what is on your mind – ideas, pictures, lists and more.
It has a simple, clutter-free interface that can keep you focussed on your work. Moreover, this app is friends with all your devices. Just write a note once, and access it from anywhere on any device – be it your laptop, tablet or smartphone.
It is loaded with all the features we crave in a notes app – attach images and files with a note, format text, dictate notes and insert emoji on the tap of a button.
The inspiration behind its design is Google Keep, which my favorite note-taking app out there.
I have built ng-notes with MEAN stack (MongoDB, Express, AngularJS and Node.js). The UX is largely based on AngularJS, hence the name ng-notes. 🙂
The project was started in January this year as a practice of my Web Development classes, but it grew exponentially. Now, after hundreds of GitHub commits, it has finally taken the shape of a decent notes app. It was also displayed in my college during projects display this semester.
I have deployed it on Heroku and you can use it at ngnotes.herokuapp.com. In fact, I am writing this post in my ng-notes account itself and believe me, it feels awesome! 😉
It has been years since I set foot in the blogging world and I still find it equally interesting and lovable. In fact, I consider blogging to be one of the most productive tasks I do online. I started Wall of Wonders in 2012 and since then, this blog has flourished and has taken me along in its growth.
Whether you post regularly or randomly, with research or just freshly out of your mind, blogging can be a really fruitful penchant for you! So here are the top 5 reasons why I love blogging so much and why you should start your own blog right now.
About a month ago, in November, just before the end-term exams, our batch was told that this winter, extra classes will be scheduled for us and the winter break (earlier scheduled from December 25th onwards) has been postponed till December 31st. Being a hosteler, this meant I had to stay in the college during the beautiful holiday season… The thought was disheartening.
#DesignerProblems comics (by Creative Market) show the weird problems designers face everyday. Written and illustrated by Seth Roberts and Brian Hawes, they depict the various sides of life in the designer zone – be it the dilemma of choosing a good font or satisfying crazy requests from the client, they cover it all in a way which is both clever and funny.
Christmas is near and one of the best parts of the festival is a jolly-looking Christmas tree. For the people who want to make the holidays even more special, a DIY Christmas tree is a great project. And it definitely makes your Christmas tree to be one of a kind!
So, here are some really creative and out of the box Xmas tree ideas…
Unisys recently conducted the Tech Masters Quiz contest in our college on November 22, and I am glad to say that our team bagged the first position. The quiz had questions related to the field of Information Technology. I and my teammate, Ajay, got merit certificates and gift voucher from Amazon worth 5000 INR.
The quiz was held in two rounds – preliminary written round followed by the finals. Our team was announced to be the highest scorer in the preliminary round (23 out of 25 questions correct). We went on stage with high hopes for the final round, along with seven other teams.
After a lot of intriguing questions from various topics (computer security, web design, programming, networking, and so on), we again emerged as the top scorers.
I have always found myself concerned about technical trivia and it paid lot that day! It was an awesome experience.
If you love Harry Potter and Christmas, please stop what you’re doing and behold this magical tree. Kathryn Burnett (from Seaham, England) has decorated this Xmas tree with various Harry Potter ornaments and paraphernalia.
The tree is covered in Harry Potter decorations, ranging from the Hogwarts trunk under the tree, all the way up to the Sorting Hat with a Cornish pixie on top. Here are some pictures… Continue reading →
