GMH 039 Tutorial Embed Google Calendar in your WebSite

This tutorial shows how to embed your personal Google calendar into your website. It also shows how to get a simple link to share with others if you don’t have a website.

Sometimes you need to share your Google calendar, with other people, so that they can schedule events for you.

Google does allow you to share your calendar, directly with another user.
That calendar could have details, you may not want others to be viewing, like your doctor appointment’s, or when you exercise.
The alternative is, to share the calendar with any scheduled events, where all events are shown as busy, with no details.

Google can generate HTML code, called embedded code, that can be copied into a web page, to allow people to view your calendar.

To reduce the risk of people viewing events you don’t want to be seen, you can divide your events into multiple calendars.
For example, one calendar could be personal and private events and, another calendar could be business events.
If like me, you work for more than one client, you may have a separate calendar, for each client.

NOTE: This video was an experiment using all of the new things I’ve learning from some Camtasia training. I may have gone a little overboard 😉

It uses Natural Reader and a voice to give me that British tone that so many other YouTube videos have. So a learning experience with Text to Speech (TTS).
Some of the TTS text is shown above. NOTE: Listen to how “Peter” pronounces Git Hub, it’s a hoot.

It required blurring to hide some of my personal stuff from prying eyes. I’ll try to avoid doing that shit again.

I did custom music mixes. So another new learning experience using audio mixing. There must be people out there who do this stuff for cheap.

I wrote a simple HTML template and created a GitHub repository for it. More new skills.

After 5 hours creating a PowerPoint template (It can be used over again), typing in the narration (Forced me to learn how to make sentences sound correct), capturing the Powerpoint slides, mixing music, syncing the voice with the slides, capturing sequences from the browser, Microsoft Visual Studio Code and FileZilla….
a 10:18 video was created.

Was it worth it? I hope so. Please let me know in the comment section below what you think of this experiment.

Better tools for debugging Node.js

Debugging – the process of finding and fixing defects in software – can be a challenging task to do in all languages. Node.js is no exception. Luckily, the tooling for finding these issues improved a lot in the past period. Let’s take a look at what options you have to find and fix bugs in…

I am at the level with Node.JS that I no longer “Suck at it” but I am still learning every time I use it.  One of the areas I struggled with was debugging, which was much different and difficult than my .NET and PHP days.  It seems like open source meant that you were on your own for debugging.

Special thanks to Gergely for his article on just the topic of Node.js debugging.

pino.pngOne of the takeaways in the article is Pino is an extremely fast Node.js logger, inspired by bunyan. In many cases, pino is over 6x faster than alternatives like bunyan or winston
I had tried Winston as it was recommended by one of my programmer gods.  I was not worthy because I couldn’t understand it.  I have high hopes for Pino.

I use Microsoft VS Code editor as my editor and my IDE for almost everything including PowerShell, Bash, JavaScript, SQL, Node.js, ADCIIDoctor, and more.  I was glad to see a section in this article on how to better use MS Code with Node.js

Visual Studio Code for Raspberry PI Installation made simple

2017-04-11_7-00-51.png

The Raspberry PI is an ARM-based Linux system.  Sometimes this makes installing software a bit difficult.  Visual Studio Code is my go-to editor of choice for just about everything.  When I attempted it on nyRaspberryy PI 3 Rev b I saw plenty of headaches in the blog posts.  The Jay Rogers came to the rescue with this simple method of installing Visual Studio Code.

Installation Scripts

(including Raspberry Pis, Odroids and other single-board computers)

Packages are currently available in DEB and RPM format for ARM, x86 and amd64 systems.

You can use the scripts here to install the packages and add their repository to your system.

Open a new terminal. If you need super-user rights (you probably do), then you can enter sudo -s and press return to enter a super-user session. Run the installer for your current distribution:

 APT instructions

(including Debian, Raspbian, Ubuntu and Linux Mint)
