18yrs old self-taught game developer — Highly interested in tech and software engineering I blog about these here on Medium — YouTube channel — bit.ly/3q2Td9w

Who wants to read an exciting article with a boring picture. People are not insane, it is because of how you write.

Reading is never easy, and it becomes very tiresome when there are no pictures in a blog post. Readers like to see images in the articles they read. Images are a huge deal when it comes to writing a post as a writer.

Though I started writing on Medium a month ago, I have seen my fair share of what images can do. I am not all that experienced as many writers on Medium, but I have had over to 10k views with eleven stories. From how I see it, images play a significant role when it comes to blogging.

The tablet, the incoming iPad Pro, can match the performance of your laptop and even outshines it.

We were all surprised and thrilled by the performance of the M1 Soc when it came. The M1 shattered records for the best single-core Mac out there. It is one of the best multi-core notebook laptops in the market. Many iPad fans wondered, would Apple include the Apple-made silicon inside the upcoming iPad Pros due to its staggering performance? Well, let’s find out.

We didn’t know until the release of the iOS 14.5 beta. According to 9To5Mac, the iOS 14.5 beta code made references to a chip called 13G. But searching through the list of current iOS devices, no device…


Since 2016 there is no major redesign of the MacBook Pro, which is five years ago. Apple are you ready to listen to the user base?

For the last five years, every MacBook Pro looks the same. They all come with a digital touch bar, thunderbolt ports, and no HDMI or SD card slots. The most presumably annoying part is the thicker horizontal and vertical borders of the screen. It has been a course of concern for most people but not all.

The command line(CLI) has been there for a very long time, since the mid-1960’s it has been a powerful feature of computers. What makes the command line so special? Why do hackers love it? Well, it boils down to a couple of things. But before we go into that, let’s talk about this, what is the command line?

What is the command line?

Command-line is a text-based program that is used to pass commands to the computer. The User Interface of the command line is called a shell, it serves as a layer between the operating system and the user, it lets a user have…


An M1x chip appears on a benchmark site with double the performance of the current M1 in multi-core.

Apple silicon is changing our perspective on how ARM CPU's perform, until last year I didn’t even know ARM can outperform an x86 chips so well.

The M1 chips Apple used in its 13-inch laptops was one of the greatest innovations the Cupertino company has made. …


You can get the software framework that’s flying on the Mars helicopter, and use it on your project. How open-source is pushing humanity beyond imagination.

In this artist’s concept, NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter stands on the Red Planet’s surface as NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover (partially visible on the left) rolls away.
In this artist’s concept, NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter stands on the Red Planet’s surface as NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover (partially visible on the left) rolls away.

After a seven-month journey, Perseverance started its high speed descend towards the red planet on February 18th, 2021. Onboard the Perseverance was a little helicopter called Ingenuity. It will be the first unmanned helicopter on another planet. Its sole purpose is to do a series of flight tests on Mars.

The helicopter weighs 1.8kilograms but the atmosphere of Mars is about a hundredth the density of the earth’s atmosphere at ground level, and its gravity has only a third of our earth’s gravity. Ingenuity must overcome all these challenges not to mention the power and communication limitations.


Why I switched to Linux and reasons why Ubuntu Linux is just better than windows.

Time for change, moving from windows to ubuntu
Time for change, moving from windows to ubuntu

I have been using windows for almost my entire lifetime. I started with Windows XP, moved on to Windows 7, used a bit of Windows 8, and moved to Windows 10. I loved Windows XP and Windows 7, probably because I was a kid at that time. My experience with Windows changed from Windows 8, from then we are having a love-hate relationship.

Major setbacks of Windows are its chunkiness and slowness, booting from a hard disk could take me 15 minutes on Windows 10, updates can prevent you from working all day. For the record, I have a core…


To create a compelling story, different mechanisms are used, one of them is the camera shake effect, used to portray some kind of violence like a bomb going off or you being shot at.

Staying in our comfort zones is very fun, but what are the consequences and how can we stop that.

When I started university at the age of 17, I chose to do IT because my university of choice didn’t offer economics. In my first semester, I was introduced to programming, that was far from my expectation, I thought only CS students did heavy programming, but boy how was I wrong. In my second semester, we started learning C++, I decided I would master C++, but that was no easy task. Sometimes as humans we are obliged to stay in a place where there is no pressure, anxiety, or stress, but sometimes it is these complications that help us grow…
