Learn to code using Code with Google for your school and college kids.

You want to land up a programming or coding job with good experience in handling multi projects with the knowledge you have got. But still not having any idea bout where to study or to learn code, then you're in the right track. Many fortune 500 companies are looking to hire top expertized professionals who could jargon and handle problems more effectively than the regular college degree professionals who lack in real time experience.

In many parts of the world , School kids whoever does their elementary standards or secondary school level they might get an opportunity to use computers when they have lab , but do they expose to real time wants like coding , programming or debugging?. Nah!.. It is like a heavenly feel for kids whoever doesn't own computers at home.. In my school days , i was used to sit in front of teacher all day to watch what she is doing with the computer when she teaches how to operate computer that time. 

But these days , things gotten changed and many houses have smartphones or laptops to skillify their knowledge with coding and programming languages in easy methods. There are plenty of programming languages which are of use today than past decade and making sure that every competitive apps we use has any of these programmed apps. 

Google is bridging the gap between this industrial wants and what academic learning offers through Code with Google a free coding curriculum which is an introductory pack for teachers to help the students to learn coding through basic understanding and learning.

In one of my oldest post, you might have gone through teach kids through codey rocky robot. Likewise, now Google has made up a platform for teachers to utilize for students to learn coding in very easy way through simple training method . It is specially designed for the students of the age between 9 years to 14 years old. With the proper tools and resources offering from Google, students can unleash their potential to write codes says Google Code using resources with the help of Grasshopper app that trains about how to use javascript in action.

There are MOOC's which offers you wide variety of courses online for students to learn and equip their knowledge in easy to read , learn and watch videos and take tests easy. As everything is getting so easy and peasy, Code With Google comes with slightly different approach for educators to lead the way to easy to use lesson plans , tutorial activities not only for school going elementary and middle std kids but also for higher education students.

The company also announced to grant 1 million USD to Computer Science Teachers Association. There are creativity tools like Blocks , Canvas, Online Platform , Lesson plans as stated above.. Educators and students have various access to use and learn . All of the Google's code and lesson plans are free and it doesn't cost anything to user who uses it. So, Educators can train students for free and it is right now available only in English and Spanish.

Google platform enables Google classroom , VR/AR and other training kits to make this work and they even successfully implemented with other external partners like AnitaB , National 4H Council , SMASH , Blackgirls code and also they are already in progression state with the future partners like American Library Association ( ALA) , , Explore Computational Thinking and et al.

The idea of teaching kids is to make sure they get enough knowledge in easy understanding way to grasp the fundamentals of pre-algebra or chemical equations which may be hard and tiring for many teachers but this tool makes it flexible for students and teachers to get interacted like video game like approach to the students makes it more appealing and cache vibrant to students.

Tips to access Android Phones at emergency situation using lockscreen tapping method via. emergency call

When we miss out the process of opening smartphones or when we forgotten our pattern or password in our android phones . We might be wondering how to get access ?. Either we will root it or format it  but we also quiet aware of losing data which is totally inevitable. No phone is fully secured nor fully non-accessible to any user but what we need to do is little bit of knowledge or loop hole to access it. 

It is not so easy as we think to open the phone without exploring it but when we forget or when someone misuses ours without our knowledge by locking it. How you will get re-access back which is already locked or password protected or during emergency conditions. But we need to access via.  bugs or loop holes to do this and that makes you a super user or hacker. 

We cannot make the omelette without breaking eggs likewise it is good to know about certain exploitation for any user to know these days . Though this issue seems to be rare but every android user needs to know how it could be achieved at emergency or vital situations when u totally have no access to your own or forgotten

android unlocking icon

To gain access to Android smartphones/tablets , these are the step-by-step instructions which every android users needs to do very carefully 

1. Make sure the screen you accessed to is Locked and from that locked screen, dial into emergency call using dial pad which is appeared at the bottom of the lock screen by default

2. Once that is been done ,  please proceed typing  a few characters may be asterisk or hashes or no.s  just like you dial no.s in phone. Make sure you  Double-tap the characters to highlight them and tap the copy button. Then tap once in the field and tap it to  paste to make sure its doubling the characters in the field. 

Follow on  this process of highlight all, copy, and paste until the field gets so lengthy by making sure  that double-tapping no longer occurs in the field. This usually occurs after 10 or more follow ups

3. Once again go back to the lock screen, then swipe left/right to open the camera. Proceeding further more Swiping  to pull the notification drawer down from the top of the screen and from there then tap the Settings (gear) icon in the top right. This will prompt the password to appear 

4. Now once again tapping longer  in the password field and paste the characters into it. Follow up this process to long-tap the cursor and paste the characters as many times as possible, until you notice the UI crash and the soft-buttons at the. bottom of the screen gets  disappeared, making it expanding the camera to full screen.

Getting the paste button can be quiet tricky as the string grows lengthier and it fills up the full space and even more grossy and makes you feel like giving up feel. But to gain certain access we need to do that . Always make sure the cursor is at the very end of the string (you can double-tap to highlight all then tap towards the end to quickly move the cursor there) and long-tap as close to the center of the cursor as possible. It may take longer time than usual time for the paste button to appear when you do tapping.

5. Please wait for the default camera app to get frozen that makes to pop up the home screen automatically. The time duration and the objective  result of this step can vary significantly lengthier but the camera app should eventually get frozen in few minutes that exerts the  sensitive functionality

You should able to  notice the camera is getting lagged and functions improperly or working with less features as it attempts to focus on new objects. By attempting to take the  pictures using  the hardware keys may speed up the process, although it is not strictly necessary. 

If the screen gets turned off due to inactivity, simply turn it ON and please behold the patience. In some  other cases the camera app will not function or getting frozen directly to the full home screen. 

6. Once the above configuration settings has been done , please navigate to the Settings application by any means possible. For an instance by tapping the app drawer button in the bottom center and finding it in the app list. 

At this point it is possible to enable USB debugging normally (About phone > tap Build number 7 times, back, Developer options > USB debugging) and you should able to  access the device via. the adb tool or  dr.fone tool  to issue arbitrary commands or access the files on the device with the full permissions of the device owner.

PS :This Android smartphone hack affects all devices running versions of Android 5.x which means that a millions of Android smartphones in circulation worldwide are susceptible and full credits goes to team who does it.

How to secure your PC easily and safely

Securing the PC sounds easy but sometimes it is irritating to do that when we get lots of virus or  trojans or intruders spying in our what we do's in our pc and even sometimes it is not advisable to leave it open at all times. In recent times , insecurity has becoming an inevitable threat to any users all over the world. To overcome this issue , we just need to do some simple steps to follow which i would recommend any PC users to follow properly to be safe and get protected by using proper antivirus , firewall and most common thing is " don't share your info. to anyone " .   The ten things which i would like to recommend to anyone is

Choosing  the right operating system

Choose an operating system based on its security and vulnerability (Linux has no known active viruses in the wild, OpenBSD is focused on security). Find out if it uses limited user accounts,all files permissions and is regularly updated. Make sure you update your operating system with security updates and update your other software too.

Choosing the right web browser

Choose a web browser based on its security and vulnerabilities because most malware will come through via your web browser. Disable scripts too (NoScript, Privoxy and Proxomitron can do this). Look at what independent computer security analysts (such as US-CERT) and crackers (similar to hackers) say. Google Chrome is more secure and has a sandbox feature so it would be more difficult to compromise the system and spread the infection.

Practice using  strong passwords

When setting up, use strong passwords in your user account, router account etc. Hackers may use dictionary attacks and brute force attacks.

Always use trusted sources

Use trusted sources. When downloading software (including antivirus software), get it from a trusted source (softpedia, download, snapfiles, tucows, fileplanet, betanews, sourceforge) or your repository if you are using Linux.

Have the habit of Installing good antivirus software

Install good antivirus software (particularly if you use P2P). Antivirus software is designed to deal with modern malware including viruses, trojans, keyloggers, rootkits, and worms. Find out if your antivirus offers real-time scanning, on-access or on-demand. Also find out if it is heuristic. Avast are very good free editions. Choose one, download and install it and scan regularly. Keep your virus definitions up to date by updating regularly.

Practice Downloading anti malwares

Download and install software to deal with spyware such as Spy bot Search and Destroy, HijackThis or Ad-aware and scan regularly. I can't state this enough - you need to run a good anti spyware and anti malware program like Spy bot if you search the web at all. Many websites out there exploit weaknesses and holes in the security of Microsoft Explorer and will place malicious code on your computer without you knowing about it until its too late!

Initiate Downloading  and install a firewall

Download and install a firewall. Either ZoneAlarm or Comodo Firewall (Kerio, WinRoute or Linux comes with iptables). If you use a router, this gives an added layer of security by acting as a hardware firewall.

Always Close all ports

Close all ports. Hackers use port scanning (Ubuntu Linux has all ports closed by default).

Performing Penetration Testing

Perform Penetration Testing. Start with ping, then run a simple nmap scan. Backtrack Linux will also be useful.

Securing physical security 

Don't forget to think in terms of physical security! Consider something like a Kensington lock (in case of theft/unauthorised access). Also setting a BIOS password and preventing access to your machine or its removable devices (USB, CD drive etc.).

Don't use an external hard drive or USB device for important data, these represent another vulnerability, as they are easier to steal/lose. Encryption can be effective against theft. Encrypt at least your entire user account rather than just a few files. 

It can affect performance but can prove worth it. Truecrypt works on Windows, OS X, Linux, FreeOTFE works on Windows and Linux.

In OS X (10.3 or later) System Preferences Security, click FileVault (this can take minutes to hours). In Linux Ubuntu (9.04 or later) installation Step 5 of 6 choose "Require my password to login and decrypt my home folder". This uses "ecryptfs".

Remapping the Squeeze feature on Pixel to do whatever you want

It is most likely one of the Pixel 2's most interesting features is Active Edge , which lets you launch Google Assistant by simply squeezing your smartphone. Unfortunately, Google made the annoying decision to lock this function to its AI assistant, but one developer has already found a way to get around the company's restrictions. 

Actually, the Button Mapper doesn't exactly remap the Active Edge feature. Instead, it uses a clever workaround by intercepting the command to launch Google Assistant and rerouting it to another function. Of course, Google could decide to patch up that loophole, and it's possible this might cause some lag on your device. You'll also be giving a third-party app access to some private information on your phone, but if none of that bothers you, it's time to dive in.

squeeze feature on pixel 2 in android

The first thing you'll want to do is download Button Mapper, which you can grab in the Google Play Store or straight from XDA if you prefer. Even if you already have the app installed (it's useful for remapping other hardware buttons too), you'll still want to make sure you're running the latest update, version 0.53.

Beyond the Pixel 2, you'll also need a computer running Windows, MacOS or Linux to install some extra code. So make sure you have one on hand.At this point, things start to get complicated. XDA 's outlined the many steps involved, so you're better off following along with them.

Once you're all setup, you can reconfigure Active Edge to launch a specific app, turn on Do Not Disturb Mode or switch on the flashlight. You can also use it to navigate Android so when you squeeze your phone it goes back, shows recent apps, closes the app you're currently looking at or turns the screen off. The possibilities are endless.

Thank you to the friends who brought this up and original credits goes to them and related posts will be soon updated.

10 Most Popular and in-demand programming languages in 2018

Programmers and IT job seekers need to scoop up their skills everyday to develop or build the apps or web using programming languages. But not all programming languages are survivable nor sustainable in period of time . Only few programming languages for decades stand alone for job seekers as the demand has consistent growth. 

Recent research from PYPL been conducted and ranking factor of programming languages  is totally based on the number of search for a certain language thus, programming with more number of searches will be assumed to be popular.

According to TIOBE, Java still remains to be the most popular programming language which is then followed By C and C++.

Search the files inside gmail like a pro with these tricks

Gmail is one of the prominent email service that has lots of features in built and they have their characteristics attributed to certain functionalities since its inception of service. Every user finds it easy to write , delete and receive the emails quickly and its user -friendly too. But have you ever tried of searching recent mails or particular mails in search box of gmail and get tired of it. Yes we do search a lot using names or email address but do you know that gmail has hidden features to search it up even better. Few months back i was mentioning about how to search the files inside Google Drive.

 Now, I'm here to explain that method which is already available on gmail and we rarely or we might not be much aware of  and those searches will help you finding mails more quicker , narrower and even better with good results using simple commands , regular expressions and last modified dates like you do search in google for any information. Stepping up the information one by one for easy understanding

Searching Files using file size

Gmail has its own size threshold and sometimes we don't remember names but file size we do and to decipher particular file size is sometimes hectic with the huge no. of inbox emails we have. If you want to locate the files that has max threshold, then you can type this following keyword in search box like " size : [ size in bytes ] "

search file size in gmail

In the above screenshot it would be clear that file size 5 mb has been located for search results and the ouput of the keyword term are displayed .Suppose you are not sure about file size but you might want to perform a search between file size ranges then you enter this keyword on the search box as " larger_than: " n " m smaller_than: " x "  m "

search gmail with specific file size ranges

In the above search box , i searched for file size larger than 5 mb but lesser than 20 mb and results are displayed as follows

Search files using date & time stamp

   You can search the files inside gmail search box using date with the following term for emails sent / received during particular periodic session by typing " newer_than: "n " days " like newer_than 10d from: me

files using date keyword in gmail

 Here in the above box, i typed " newer than 10 days " which means the emails were sent in recent 10 days by me and the results are displayed and also you can try inputing as " after : date  to :me "

search the email after specific date and time

 Here , i searched the emails which are sent to me from others from 2018 Jan 1st till now from the following command " after : 2018/01/01 to: me " and the results are displayed as follows above. You can also search the emails using Time modifiers between selected time range like for instance if i want to search the emails that was sent between Nov 23 10:20 p.m till Nov 25 11 a.m , the following keyword to follow is " after : " epoch time of specified date to start " before : " epoch time of specified date to end " 

search the emails for specific period using epoch time converter

Here in the above result , the emails which was sent to me from Nov 23rd 10:30 p.m till Nov 25 11 a.m has been displayed using the following keyterm " after:1511455800 before: 1511587800  " these no.s are generated by epoch tool which helps machine to understand it easily. you can convert the time stamps here using the following epoch numeric converter 

Search the emails in gmail using other following commands which gives u direct results 

 For instance if i wanted to search the emails inside the gmail which are marked as starred could be searched like as follows " label:inbox is:starred "

searching emails which are labelled as starred

The emails which are marked as starred under inbox are shown as follows , likewise key terms can be applied for unread messages , spam messages , drafts by replacing the term " starred " with specific terms like "label:inbox is:unread " and likewise if you want to search for a specific recipent emails which was accidently transferred to trash also could be checked using the specific term " from: in: anywhere "

Search the file extension and file name inside the email

You can also search the specific file name or file type with the keyword and terms like typing in search box as " filename: "name of the file " with file extension " like for an instance i want to search the filename called dumps with the file extension ending in .pdf. Here is what i have to type "filename:dumps.pdf" and the result are displayed as follows:

search the emails using filename and file extension

Search the chat conversation [ hangout conversations ] using inchat in gmail

You can also search the hangouts/chat conversation from specific person using " inchat : " name of the recipent " like below

chat conversation search inside email using inchat

As you can see the chat conversation with the specific person has been sorted out and displayed well descendingly.

Some other features like Regular expressions could be not directly used with Gmail instead it has to be adjusted with Google doc to activate it  and some other commands or key terms to use in search box are :  " from:  " subject name " ( Urgent OR  Important )"  for priority mail checks and if you want to compare two emails starting with same name but they have different initials then it can be written as " from : Robert Oberhoff  -Alex -Junior " this will exclude all emails which has junior or Alex as initials or suffix in it.

I just found out these commands and some of the common key terms that could be used for searching anything inside search box in the gmail that could fetch out the results more effectively and less time consuming than regular searching that takes a plenty of time to tick of. I'll come with more updates sooner and will update the list here.
