Here we are going to using Ionic framework to develop your hybrid application using the well known programming language HTML/CSS/JS.
What is Ionic?
Ionic is a powerful HTML5 native app development framework that helps you build native-feeling mobile application all with your favorite web technology like HTML/CSS/JS
Ionic uses a Angular JS, Cordova/PhoneGap to develop a native feel mobile application which runs on all the mobile platform. [Currently limited to Android, Ios, and Firefox]
Setup Ionic for Development
- Step 1: Install the nodejs framework
Download it from here : nodejs.org/download/
- Step 2: Check the nodejs and npm version
- Open your command prompt/terminal and check the nodejs installed successful or not by typing the below command
$> node –v
$> npm -v
- Open your command prompt/terminal and check the nodejs installed successful or not by typing the below command
- Step3: Install cordova
- Installing Cordova which will take our app and bundle it into a native wrapper to turn into a traditional native app.
npm install -g cordova
- Step 4: Install ionic a command line utility to start, build and package Ionic apps.
$ npm install –g ionic
- Step 5: Create a Blank Project
- We need to create a new Cordova project somewhere on the computer for the code for our app
- Here “start” command tell we are creating new project
- todo is our project name
- blank is a temple mean it will create a blank project you can use the below command to create a different type of projects.
- tab, slide
- Step 6: Run A local server to test your project
- If you don’t have android or Iphone devices you can use your browser to test the code. Start the browser using below command.
- Now you can see the live preview of your app here.
- Step 7: Build and emulate your App
- If you have android or Iphone devices you can build your app and testing on your devices.
- Step 8: Test your app on Emulator
- You can use the simulator to test you application
- Step 9: Test your app on Real deviecs
- Connect your android/Iphone into the USB port of your machine.
- Make sure that developer option is set on those devices.
- Follow the below steps to setup the android SDK
For setting up in Ubuntu
If you are running a 64-bit version of Ubuntu, you'll need to install the 32-bit libraries since Android is only 32-bit at the moment.
$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libsIf you are on Ubuntu 13.04 or greater, `ia32-libs` has been removed. You can use the following packages instead:
$ sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0
For Setting up in Windows
Windows users developing for Android: You'll want to make sure you have the following installed and set up.
NOTE: Whenever you make changes to the PATH, or any other environment variable, you'll need to restart or open a new tab in your shell program for the PATH change to take effect.
Install the most recent Java JDK (NOT just the JRE).
Next, create an environment variable for
JAVA_HOMEpointing to the root folder where the Java JDK was installed. So, if you installed the JDK into
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk7, set
JAVA_HOMEto be this path. After that, add the JDK's
bindirectory to the PATH variable as well. Following the previous assumption, this should be either
%JAVA_HOME%\binor the full path
To install Ant, download a zip from here, extract it, move the first folder in the zip to a safe place, and update your PATH to include the
binfolder in that folder. For example, if you moved the Ant folder to
c:/, you'd want to add this to your PATH:
Installing the Android SDK is also necessary. The Android SDK provides you the API libraries and developer tools necessary to build, test, and debug apps for Android.
Cordova requires the ANDROID_HOME environment variable to be set. This should point to the
[ANDROID_SDK_DIR]\android-sdkdirectory (for example
Next, update your PATH to include the
platform-tools/folder in that folder. So, using ANDROID_HOME, you would add both
Now you can see the app running on your phone. No need of leaning internal of Android. and design the UI with XML. Your simple web programming knowledge is more than enough to develop a hybrid application which can run on all the platform. In My next tutorial I will explain using different ionic tags to design your UI. Keep posting your comments here.

If you want to be a developer and like to begin your career in programming field. Then these are the top 10 programming language you should know. Understanding at least one programming language also makes an impressive addition to your resume.
In this article I am going to list out the popular programming language and its online tutorials reference.
Python is developed for non programmer to write a basic program for their needs. But later it become the one of the popular high level object oriented programming language. Its readability and compact syntax make it easy for beginners. Now a days it can be used as a server-side scripting language for website, Scientific calculation, Mobile and Desktop application development, Test automation scripting and etc. It is also used by Google, Yahoo! and NASA, Instagram and Pinterest. You can learn python from Codecademy,Lynda.com, LearnPython.org, Python.org
It is a free open source server side scripting language which is designed for dynamic website. Most of the dynamic website in the world are powered by PHP. It is very famous among web developer due to the reason that it can be directly embedded into an HTML source document rather than an external file, which has made it a popular programming language Learn PHP from Codecademy,Lynda.com, Treehouse, Zend Developer Zone , PHP.net
It is a client and later become server-side scripting language for developing interactive or animated web functions. It is also used in game development and writing desktop applications. It derives much of its syntax from C. It is developed by Netscape for their web browsers project. One important things to note is it is not Java programming language, In syntax it may look like JAVA but in reality it is completely different programming language. Learn this langue from Codecademy, Lynda.com, Code School, Treehouse, Learn-JS.org
Ruby language is object-oriented scripting language for developing websites and mobile apps. It is very famous in recent days. It powers the Ruby on Rails framework, which is used on Scribd, GitHub, Groupon and Shopify. Learn Ruby from Codecademy, Code School, TryRuby.org, RubyMonk
5. C Language:
It is object oriented version C programming language which is designed to enhance the C language, C++ powers software like Firefox, Wimamp and All Adobe programs. It develops system software, applications software, high-performance server, client applications and video games. Learn this language at Lynda.com, CPlusPlus.com, LearnCpp.com, CProgramming.com
This language has a huge demand mainly for enterprise software, more secure web based content, games, mobile app and very famous Android OS. Java can work across several software platform which means if its written on Mac OS then it can also run on Windows and Linux. It is developed by Sun Microsystems in 1990s which was bought by Oracle. So Oracle is a current maintainer of the Java development tools.
I can say this is windows own implementation of Java. It’s called “C-sharp”. C# is a multi-paradigm language which was developed by Microsoft as part of its .Net initiative. It combines principles from C and C++. C# is a general purpose language used to develop software fro Microsoft and windows platform. You can learn it from Lynda.com, Microsoft Virtual Academy,TutorialsPoint.com
9. Objective C
If you hear this word first don’t’ scare this is nothing but Apple version of Java. We have three major platform which spread across the world. Linux, Windows and Apple Mac OS. Objective C is again a general purpose, object-oriented programming language and its used by Apple’s operating system. It powers Apple’s OS X and iOS, as well as its APIs. It can also be used to create iPhone apps. Learn it from Lynda.com, Mac Developer Library, Cocoa Dev Central, Mobile Tuts+
Structured Query Language(SQL) is a special-purpose language which is used to manage data in relational database management systems. It is used for the “Query” function, in searching informational databases. SQL can be learnt from Lynda.com,SQLCourse.com, TutorialsPoint.com, SQLZoo.net
I hope this article will give some insight of top 10 programming langue which is used by most of the Software companies. Feel free to give a comment below.

Motivation behind mentoring
God creates human with imbalance mean someone has more knowledge, high IQ someone struggle to learn new thing. Someone is reach forever, someone is poor by birth. I believe this inequality is to make sure that humans balance themselves and live a better life. So if your are geek by nature make sure that your knowledge is equally shared with everyone. If you are rich by birth make sure that your money is equally distributed to everyone.
This is Senthilkumar working as a Research engineer in Qualcomm Inc Bangalore. I was born and brought up from Madurai. I did my graduation in electronics and communication engineering from KLN College of engineer Madurai and passed out from 2010. I am basically mentor who love to motivate young girls in technological and research field. The main objective is to make them a future entrepreneurs. To know more about me check out here www.allaboutsenthil.appspot.com
Technovation is the global technology entrepreneurship program for girls, with over 1,300 alumnae from 19 countries. Middle school, high school, and university students work in teams to research, design, build, and launch a mobile app prototype through a 50-hour curriculum over 3 months, with guidance from dedicated teachers and female mentors who are professionals in STEM and business careers. Then they pitch their mobile app "startups" to real investors via YouTube and compete for a chance to travel to Silicon Valley to make live pitches for $20k in awards. No prior app development experience is necessary and it’s free to participate. Learn more at http://technovationchallenge.org
Technovation Challenge in India
WeTech(Women Enhancing in Technology) is an NGO which brought this Technovation program to India this year. They have partnered with companies like Qualcomm, Google and Goldman Sach, to execute the program in India to give opportunity to young girls. I was invited to be a Mentor representing QUALCOMM to mentor one team based on Bangalore NPS (National public School).
Conducting Technovation in Madurai
But I was born and brought up from Madurai I would like to bring this opportunity to Madurai. I know girls in Madurai have lots of potential to create execute new ideas and compete with teams in world wide.
To recruit young girls for this program I started composing mail to all the Women College in Madurai. I collected their mail id from college website and send a mail about Technovation program. But unfortunately I didn't get any response from any college. So I requested my sister ManiMala to create awareness about this program. I asked her to register as a regional coordinator. She was alumni of Madura and Thaigarajar College. She went to those colleges and gave a presentation about this program. As a result she recruited more than 200 girls from these two colleges.
Initial thoughts of mentoring
After recruiting the mass 200 girls we started registering the student’s team names in Technovation official site to get the study materials and other stuffs. The initial thought of my mentoring is to have Hangout session or Skype call to all the team on every weekend to prepare them for the contest. But later I realized most of them don’t have access to internet. But it doesn't stop me I started executing the plan B mentor them face to face.
Weekends in Madurai
To organize the face to face mentoring the biggest problem is a common place where we can bring these girls and teach the Technovation Curriculum. We requested Madura College to give the permission to conduct this program on weekend. The most challenging task in the entire journey is to convince the college to get the place in their campus, But Principal of Madura college and Latha mam professor Zoology department, Madura College made it easy. We have to say a big thank to Pricipal and Latha mam, without them Technovation in Madurai is one of my dream I use to have. I started travelling to Madurai on every weekend to teach the Technovation curriculum.
Organizing the Classes
Mani Mala work on weekdays with Latha mam writing the letter for the permission, schedule the class timing and inform the girls about the class. The interesting part here is passing the class information to these girls. Basically they don’t have access to internet, so we can’t send a single mail to all the register girls about the class timing. The next only option is to send a SMS to them as they all have basic phone. We have 200 register girls which mean we have to send 200 SMS. But as per the TRAI regulation in India you can only send 100 SMS per day. So we split into two groups first 100 ManiMala will send SMS and next 100 students I will send from my number. We have class on both Saturday and Sunday morning 10AM to 1PM. The purpose of having class on two day is if student who missed the class on Saturday due to some personal reason still can attend the same on Sunday.
Life changing 12 weeks
These are the Technovation curriculum for the 12 week program which I taught to these girls for the past three month
The 12 weeks mentoring 6 hackathons finally these girls able to give life to their ideas. The deadline for deliveralbe submission is May 2 2014. As end of the 12 week curriculum this girls has to submit the below deliverable to Technovation.
- Presentation PPT
- Business plan
- Product description 100 words
- App pitch video 4mins
- App Demo video 2mins
- App screen short (3)
- App inventor source code.
Mentor to director
Pitch video is an one of the important deliverable in the contest. But the challenge is taking the pitch video and uploading it to YouTube. As most of the team have basic phone they are not able to record their pitch video. So our last week hackathon we decided to have pitch recording for all the teams. I used my digital camera and Nexus phone to shoot their pitch video. This is the funniest part of my mentoring experience me and my sister literally become a movie directory and dialog writers. These girls will give their pitch script in Tamil and we translate it to English and give a practice to them to make sure they talk the entire 4 mins in English. This is really different experience for them. There are multiple retakes yeah it is really fun we enjoyed the weekend a lot.
Wrap up and Submit
The have completed their paper and ppt prototype of the idea. They completed their android app in app inventor. They prepared their business plan with app demo video and pitch video. These deliverables are submitted to Technovation forum on May 2, 2014. All the teams deliverable went to different level of judging from mentors all around the world as a result three teams from Madurai got selected for best idea in Regional category .Other team got selected for different category.
Girls in Bangalore
Top three teams from Madurai invited to attend the WeTech Pitch event in 19th July Bangalore. I have booked ticket for all the team from Madurai to Bangalore. This task not really easy as i expected. Because all these girls are first time travelling outside Tamil Nadu. So their parents are not ready to send them alone. I called all the parents and convinced them that how important this trip for these girls career. That weekend i made more than 65 calls from my phone to convince their parents to send them to Bangalore. Finally they agreed to send them, they boarded bus at 9:30 PM Friday 18, July from Madurai and reached Bangalore at 7:30 AM Saturday 19, July. I went to bus stop to receive all the girls. In Saturday morning i am able to see more excited faces, for them visiting Bangalore is like visiting US at first time. All are more excited and happy. Here i want share one thing i am somewhat good in mentoring but completely Zero in organizing i felt that organizing is the toughest job. The entire 12 weeks my sister take care of organizing events i just went their and start sharing my experience with them. But this time my sister did't come with these girls due to some personal reason. I am really clueless how i am going to manage all the 15 girls. I have to arrange place for refreshment, breakfast, transport facility to reach the event. I planned everything perfectly but i don't know how i am going to execute as a single person. Then i asked help from my colleagues Vijay and Suganya. They immediately accepted my last minute request and stayed with me a whole day. Here i have to thank them that you people made it. As the plan is that Wetech event starts at 2PM. So i thought of giving lab tour to these girls in our Qualcomm Bangalore in Morning and afternoon i can bring this girls to the auditorium.
Girls Visit Qualcomm
I have to thank my colleague and mentor Dhana who helped me to get permission to visit our lab from security team. I brought this girls inside our RF LAB and demonstrated some of the board and wireless chips. I have explained them how we works and what product we are making. I hope all of them got some inside of Tech companies.
The Top three winners from Madurai team was invited to Bangalore WeTech pitch event to collect their prize and form the networking with industry top people. The pitch event happened on July 19, 2014. Two teams from Madura College and one team from Thiagarajar College got selected for the WeTech pitch event. For remaining team there is next Pitch event will be happening in Chennai on second week of September
- Let Start a company
- Connect More
- Teaching Open source Technology
Let Start a company
Technovation is not just a contest where girls will develop their android application and winner will get prize. This is more than a contest, the whole objective of the program is to motivate these girls to start a technological company using their idea. They will pitch their ideas to Venture capitals and investor for funding. To enable this dream i am working with these girls to develop a platform called Me2Mentor and MentorSpace. Technovation got over but still i am travelling in weekend to teach opensource technology such as Linux and python to these girls.
As a end result young girls (technovation participants) from Madurai started their own company TheScreenInc and applied for startup programs 10000startups, Google Fast track and citrix startup accelerator. They are waiting for the result. I pray god that they should selected for this program to make their idea into a product to touch people lives.
Me2mentor is a software platform which provides opportunity to everyone irrespective of Geo location and internet facility. The idea is anyone who having passionate about technology and want to pursue their career in research field can use this platform. A basic phone with SMS facility is more than enough to get everything Me with these girls are developing this platform using Python, Google app engine and twilio voice and SMS API.It will be great if some googlers ready to help us to bring this platform.up and running in Google cloud.
How it is working
- To Register in Me2mentor platform just send an SMS with REG <your name> <interest> <institution> to Me2mentor platform
- After successful registration you will get a unique Id for further communication.
- If you have idea want to validate with right people send an SMS IDEA <uniqid > <idea description>
- If your idea is really good Me2Mentor will tweets your idea to celebrity twitter page to get more visibility
- If you want to connect to mentor send an SMS MENTOR <<uniqid > <area of interest>
- Student can use the MentorSpace to have live hangout with mentors.
What is MentorSpace
Mentorspace is a physical location or class room with one projector, one Laptop with 3G dongle and sufficient space to accommodate 30 students. where we connect the young girls with right mentor. we are talking with Colleges and Schools in Madurai to create a Mentor Space in their campus. We need companies support to arrange this stuff in mentor space to connect these girls with a right mentor anywhere in the world.
- We are really working hard to connect more girls with WeTech and Technovation.
- We hope Technology challenge 2015 the girls list grow up from 3digit to 4 digit.
- I am translating all the Technovation curriculum to Tamil to avoid the language barrier and make sure this curriculum should reach every one.
- App inventor demo in Tamil. I am making some of the basic app inventor tutorials in Tamil and plan to upload it to YouTube.

The VI editor is a one of the most powerful text editor which has a very extensive functionalities to allow developer enabling to edit files with a minimum of keystrokes. This power and functionality comes as a cost. This article I am going to explain basic command which helps you to put your hands on in VIM editor to write your program.
Mode of Operations
VIM has three modes of operation.
- Command Mode : This is the mode VIM starts in by default. In this mode, most keys on the keyboard are defined to specific command. At any time, pressing the ESC key and typing colon : returns the user to command mode.
- Insert Mode: This mode allows a user to start inputing data into file. To reach this mode, press i or o
- Visual Mode: This mode allows you to do the visual operation which is common in grapical editors like selecting punch of lines copy/pasting/deleting the text in the editor. Pressing v will enters you in visual mode.
Commands for basic Operations
Opening a File
Descriptions i Insert a text in after the current cursor position I Insert a text before the cursor position o Insert a text one line below the cursor position O Insert a text one line above the cursor position a Append a text after the cursor A Append a text before the cursor
Descriptions k Go up j Go down h Go left i Go right w Go write a word b Go left a word gg Go to the beginning of the file G Go to the end of the file 22j Go to the line no 22 1 Go to start of the line $ Go to end of the line
Copy & Paste
Descriptions v Press v to enter visual mode Use Arrow keys [k, j h, I ] To select the text to copy y To copy the selected text p To paste the text d To cut the text followed by y to paste d To delete the selected text yy To copy a Line yw To copy a word dd To delete/cut a Line dw To delete/cut a word x To delete a character r To replace a character cw To replace a word
Undo & Redo
Descriptions u Undo the changes Ctrl + R Redo the changes
Search & Replace
Descriptions /<keyword> after the slash put whatever you want to find and press the enter key) n Find next N Find previous * Pressing star on top of the word you want to search automatically show the search result :noh Turn off highlighting (after a search) :%s/search/replace/gc It will search and replace the text in the entire document [g mean global] [c mean confirm before replacing the text] :1,5s/search/replace/ci It will only replace the text in between line number 1 and 5. [I mean ignore case]
Save & Quit
Commands [see colon is there before ]
Descriptions :w Save the file :!w Save it forcefully to override the readonly files :q Close the file :q! Close the unsaved file forcefully : :wq save and close the file :wq! Save and Close the file forcefully :x Save and close the file
Descriptions : sp Split the window into two buffer : sp filename open the new file in the window : vsp Vertically split the window : vsp filename Open the file in vertical window ctrl + w w Switch between windows
This article provides a very basic command which is used in VIM for day to day work. As I told VIM is so powerful text editor It has more than 150 commands which provides the different functionality. VIM can be configured as better than modern IDE. It has support of editing all the modern programming language. Please feel free to give your comments in the below section. If you have any query feel free to send a mail to email@example.com
In this post I am going to explain about how to setup your Github account and Show your code ability to the world.
What is GitHub?
Github is one of the most important developments in software over the past five year. The site began in 2008 as a simple frontend for the open-source GIT distributed version control tool. It was similar to code repositories like SourceForge, Google Code, or Bitbucket But Github has transcended the category to become an institution in its own right. Features that is pioneered are now crucial tools for any group software engineering work. It is now the world’s largest and most dynamic repository of open-source code, and a strong Github account has become more important than your CV or formal education for the most cutting-edge technology companies.
Click here to open the github website.
Select Free Account:
Select your account type as free. If you are corporate you can select the paid account service.
Create New Repository:
- Click on the Plus symbol
- Select new repository option
- Give your repository name as Sample for test purpose
- Add the description of your repository.
- Select the public option as it is free and it will be visible to everyone
- For private repository you have to select the paid service.
- Click on the create repository button.
- Your repository “Sample” is ready now
Setup the local repository on your machine.
Installing and setting up the GIT repo on your system
|$> sudo apt-get install git-core –y [in ubuntu machine] windows [Download MiniLinux]|
$> mkdir repo
$> cd repo
$> mkdir Sample
$> cd Sample
$> git config –global user.name “Senthilkumar M” << Use your name here >>
$> git config –global user.email firstname.lastname@example.org <<Use your email id here >>
$> git init
$> git add README.md
$> git status
$> git commit –m “Initial commit”
$> git status
$> git remote add origin https://github.com/USERNAME/Sample.git
$> git push –u origin master /*It doesn’t work */
Pushing the local code to Github.com
- Executing git push –u origin master will through an error.
- We need to generate ssh keys so that Github knows that we have access rights
- Run the following commands to generate the SSH keys.
$> ssh-keygen -t rsa –C “email@example.com” << Your Github id here >>
Press enter two times until it generate the key fingerprint
$> cd .ssh
$> cat id_rsa.pub
Update the public key in github site
- Copy the contents of the above file (id_rsa.pub) and paste it to github.com site
- Goto Setting -> ssh keys -> Add new key-> paste the key
- Now go to github.com/settings/ssh
|$> ssh –T firstname.lastname@example.org|
$> git push –u origin master /* Now it will work and upload your code to Github.com */
OverviewHello all if you are heard the word developer and wonder what they are and what they will do, and want to become a developer. This is the place to get start to become a developer. In this article I am going to setup the environment to write your first “Hello world” program and share it to the world.
Who is a DeveloperA lot of people think, if they can write some code, they qualify as a developer. But it is not like that, if you don’t take ownership and responsibility for solving the overall, real business/user problem you are not consider as a developer.A good developer should understand the overall problem and its context. He has good problem solving skills, take ownership by being a part of the team and having a sense.
Before starting you have to understand the below terminology which is always used while talking between developers.
|Analysis||Understand your requirement and analysis with existing system|
|Design||Draw your understanding of the problem in visible manner|
|Coding||Translate your design into any of the programming language|
|Testing||Validate your program satisfies your requirements|
|Debugging||Dig through the code to understand where your program fails to satisfies your requirement|
|Profiling||Get the performance data of your program to make it faster and better|
Choose your platformCurrently there are three major platform available for development.
Setup your Linux EnvironmentIf you have Linux OS on your machine you can skip this section. Here I am going to explain you how to setup the Linux environment on your windows or MAC based platform. Before starting you need to download the Development tools from the given link
MiniLinux – It is a simple light weight Linux CLI Application which mimics the Linux Terminal.
MiniLinux was developed by me on top of mobaxterm with additional plugin support which allows you to get the entire Linux environment on one click.
Click here to download the MiniLinux.
There are other tools which provides the Linux Environment on windows like Cygwin, Installing Linux on Virtual machine, Mobaxterm free version. But setting up these environment is very complex task for beginner. When I start try to setup the cygwin in my machine at first time I am literally pissed off and I went to install the Ubuntu as a dual OS in my machine. So To avoid all sort of juggling I have created a “MiniLinux” on top of free mobaxterm with additional plugins to get a real flavor of Linux.
Select your EditorChoosing your editor is the import thing as developer you have to do before writing your code. If you are windows user after hearing the word editor obviously the name Notepad will come to your mind. But it is not really a editor, the name suggest it is simple note taking application. So always it is better to avoid using Notepad to write your program. You have to select the editor which will increase your productivity. If we talk about editor there are two famous editor in the open source world called “VIM” and “EMAC”. In open Source world we classify the developer into two category one who uses VIM and other who uses EMACS. Both are best editor which allows you to write a code in fast phase and increase your productivity. But selecting the one completely depends on the individuals. Here I am VIM guy so I will go with VIM.
You don’t need to download anything to setup your VIM editor I already bundle it in MiniLinux application. So just click on the MiniLinux Application, It will open the application which looks similar like your command prompt in windows. In the terminal just type vim to get start the vim editor.
VIM editor has three modes.
- Command Mode [press ESC and colon : to go to command mode]
- Insert mode [press “I” or “O” to go to insert mode]
- Visual Mode [ press “v” to go to visual mode]
|$> vim||Open the empty vim editor|
|$> vim filename||Open the file in vim editor/create new file|
Basic vim CommandsAll the vim commands only work in command mode, so always press ESC + : to go to command mode and execute the below commands.
|I or O||Go to insert mode|
|w||save the contents|
|wq||save and quit the file|
|q!||quit without saving the file|
|gg||go to top of the file|
|G||go to end of the file|
|1||go to start of the line|
|$||go to end of the line|
|:help||to open the help menu|
Setup the Local GIT AccountGIT is a distributed revision control and Source code management system.When you are working in corporate world you may have to develop a program with multiple people, and all may use the same file to develop different functionality in it, So we need a tool which helps the team cope with the confusion that tends to happened when multiple people are editing the same files.
Here I am going to explain the steps required to setup a local GIT in your machine. As MiniLinux bundle with GIT so you don’t need to download any special program to setup GIT. Just open the MiniLinux Application, in terminal type the below command
$> git --help
Which shows the usage of git tools. Execute the below list of commands to setup your local GIT in your machine
|$> mkdir myrepo|
|$> cd myrepo|
|$> git config –global user.name “Senthilkumar M” << Use your name here >>|
|$> git config –global user.email email@example.com << User your mail id here >>|
Write a hello world programNow your Linux environment is ready and your editor also ready to accept your code then what let start writing a simple hello world program in C. As a Developer you have to develop your code in different programming language but for beginning purpose I will start demonstration in C.
Open your vim editor and start typing/copy the below program.
$> vim hello.c
printf(“Hello world now I am a Developer \n”);
$> gcc hello.c –o hello
If your program compiles successfully without any error you will see a file in your current directory called hello. Type the below command to run the program.
$> Hello world now I am a Developer
Share your program through GITUntil you not share your code to the world no one know you are the good developer. Sharing your program to others makes a positive impact on you career development. Company who want to recruit you will see your code and understand your coding ability before calling you for interview. To share you code to other we have open source GIT web called github where you need to create your public repository to upload your code. You can refer my GIThub blog to setup your git hub account. Before doing that first commit your changes into local GIT.
Type the below commands to commit your changes.
“Words inside the quote are command explanation ”
|$> git status “ This command show you the files which not committed”|
$> git add hello.c hello.exe “Add the files to git ”
$> git status “Now it will show the different result then previous”
$> git commit –m “initial commit” “This is the commit msg”
$> git status “It will show nothing to commit mean your changes committed”
$> git log “It will show your commit history author name and date/time press q to come out”
To share your code to the world please refer my GIT blog to create an account in GITHUB website. Thanks for spending your time reading my blog. Happy coding. Feel free to give comments here. If you struck anywhere in they above steps send a mail to me firstname.lastname@example.org
