Love it or hate it, it’s still sentiment analysis 🤔 #sentimental
I’ve been experimenting in node.js again. It started off as trying out NLP (Natural Language Processing), which I configured to determine a positive or negative sentiment of a given sentence 🎭
Taking it a step further, I thought it’d be cool if I plugged in some tweets. Using Twitter’s API I ran a sentiment check on the latest 100 tweets on a given search query. Once each tweet had a sentiment value assigned to it, I calculated the mean sentiment (sum of sentiment divided by number of tweets) and voila, successfully tapped into the public zeitgeist! 🎉
The craziest part is how easy it was to set up using only two NPM packages, ‘natural’ for the NLP, and ‘twitter’ for easy API interaction 💯
What new things do you want to experiment with? ...
Happy Sunday Devs! ✨
I hope you had a great week because another great week is to start.
I started my website yesterday with Gatsby and Storyblok. The whole implementation of Storyblok is done and I decided to use it only for the Blog and Projects page. The homepage will be only build in Gatsby.
I still have to make some post types and think about design (which is for me always the difficult part, to be honest).
The goal is anyway to make it simple and beautiful.
I will also try to catch up in some React theory today. But as I am finding it out, the best way for me to learn React is entirely by doing and catching up in theory while by VueJs, it was more theory.
What is the best way for you to learn? By practicing more and then adding some theory or the other way around? 🔥 ...
Mistaken beliefs to be a developer.
Today I will talk about common mistaken beliefs people have about developers.
You need a Computer Science Degree.
This is a common mistake people have. It helps! But it's not necessary for you to have to become a developer. I was working as a junior python developer after drop out of University after 1st year. (So I didn't need to finish my studies in order to become a dev)
You need to be a mathematical genius.
You don't need half the math stuff you think you do. As long as you understand the concept of data structures, loops, and basic algorithms. You will be fine.
It's an anti-social life.
You probably have been not once in a situation where you sit in a dark room in the middle of the night, staring at a screen with a bunch of code which looks like a green code from The Matrix. Yeah, this sounds like no social life but despite this, there are moments when developers are required to communicate with others, such as clients, manager, team members, random people on stack overflow. We as developers are not as anti-social night owls as people make us out to seem. Especially me and my crazy friends. When it comes to going to parties.
Feel free to add any of your own ideas about mistaken beliefs. Have a great day!
