Learn: Understanding Web Applications I

What is this for?
I am writing this for people that have taken interest in Computer Science / Software Development / Web in general and have struggled to differentiate between Client Development and Web. Who is this for? This really is for the beginners and for people who are just interested in how things work. Overview There are many types of software that are being develop nowadays. From pure desktop clients, embedded systems, operating systems, database software, web applications, etc., there are software developers out there taking an interest in certain fields. Web Development has come a long way from where it started. 
Understanding Web One of the main differences between a web applications and some of the traditional desktop applications is that web applications aren't installed in the user's desktop. Web Applications are generally accessed by a user through a browser - for example Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc. When a user types in the URL, the…

Spring Rain in Vancouver

Expecting spring, we got rain.

When we booked our trip, we thought it would be really nice to go in April because we've heard so much about Vancouver's sprint and how beautiful the gardens would be. A few days before the trip we checked the weather and guess what? Vancouver is having one of their extended rain...

By the time we finished walking through the garden, we were hungry. We decided to eat at the restaurant inside the garden so we can still have a nice view. We had sandwich and cappuccino. The cappuccino was perfect for the weather.

Phoenix, Arizona

Winter in Phoenix, Arizona. (Late Post)

I have heard from people of how hot Arizona gets during the Summer. But I've never heard people talk about the brief moment of time when it gets really cold. This is the case when I visited Phoenix in December. It was cold.

Phoenix and the surrounding are have a lot of good places to eat and drink.

Check these places out.



Sequence: Board Game

So I have not been posting at the same frequency as I started. Anyways, who is excited with our week's mail. We found a promo code for a board game a few weeks ago. Since we don't know how to play this game and price is reasonable after the promo code, we decided to go with the buy. Anyways, it has finally come through, and here it is!



Welcome Sequence to our Board Game Collection.

Layover: Allie's American Grille

On our way to Germany in 2011, our flight to Heathrow got delayed. We needed to get out of London Heathrow Airport and stay a night at a hotel nearby. We got to the hotel and we were so hungry that we ate at this place.

The Order: 1886 Review

During this past weekend, one of the games I have always wanted went on a PlayStation Flash Sale. The game cost $7.99 which wasn't that bad considering the overall good reviews the game had. The game was known to have had a pretty good story as well as good graphics and gameplay. So without giving much of the story, I'll try to get my point of view of the game.
The game feels like a movie. With the 2 hours, I spent this weekend playing the game. One thing is evident. This game surely feels like a movie. To me, this isn't a bad thing. I have always been a fan of great story lines on video games. This keeps you interested in playing the game and rather than just finishing the game just because you spent money on it.

The controls are pretty good; although if you are used to Battlefield or Call of Duty or any kind of first person shooter, you'll need to adjust at the trigger button.

Overall, I like the game. It's a good buy even if you won't get it on sale.
