I have an oddly random deep love for Svelte in that I wish Rich Harris would give me a shout out! By day I’m a .NET developer but I just love the ease of use that Svelte provides which has some familiarities to Blazor. So I thought that I might give a quick rundown on how you can fall in love as well by using some cutting edge tools that will get you up and running quickly.

Step 1

Open your terminal or your favorite IDE (VSCode for me).
type in the following command

NOTE: Vite requires Node.js version >=12.0.0.

With NPM:

I was having trouble getting Strapi connected with Cloudinary at the version described in the title. The walkthrough / tutorial HERE was outdated (Step 10) and Strapi has changed since.

So the way I was able to resolve this issue is shown here:

  1. In your strapi project find the config directory and create a new file plugins.js
  2. Copy the code structure from the strapi-provider-upload-cloudinary which is
module.exports = ({ env }) => ({  upload: {    provider: 'cloudinary',    providerOptions: {      cloud_name: env('CLOUDINARY_NAME'),      api_key: env('CLOUDINARY_KEY'),      api_secret: env('CLOUDINARY_SECRET'),    },  },});

This is assuming you have a .env file in your project with…

In light of current events (circa 2020 Corona Virus), I noticed that the boot camps have switched to “remote” only and being able to present “in front” of the class no longer exists. I imagined that, students would still present their projects but now it would be…


When you’re scared to run your code, and it works the first try (Halloween style)!

When I first started as a developer I ran into some scary scenarios. My code was very error prone and I created some functions that I was expecting a string as the output but I got an object. It was very frustrating and I wasn’t even sure I would be able to understand software development let alone have to go and fix my code. My nightmare scenario was to be hired on as a developer and then have to troubleshoot, a.k.a. Debug, some other developers…
