AWS Amplify

A little while ago I did a session for my friends at college for Student Developer Clubs (you can watch the session here). The topic we sunk in was React for Beginners. Towards the end of the session I built a Todo app with React and use React’s state to manage the todos.

I thought what if I could use the same front-end code for my an Amplify app!? So I started reading the documentation for Amplify and asked an experienced friend with Amplify to share some light on the topic.

So… Lets get this started and build the app…

I have been using GraphQL to learn and build some personal projects. And in the process, I needed some boilerplate to a new project.

It inspired me to start working on something that would fasten the process of starting a new project. …

Social Media Detox is less talked about in our daily life for some obvious reasons, I will try to address the same in later part in the article. But more importantly, I will discuss why everyone needs social media detox for some time period. I personally gave up social media for around 50–60 days, the following article is my experience and opinion of the same.

Let’s start with a cigarette. It has zero nutritional value, it’s a blow of money, makes you addicted and harms physical health.

Now let’s see social media. It is a waste of some good time…


There’s a big buzz out there regarding which back-end technology is better Node.js or Deno. So I went ahead to create the same app using both technologies.

I made a full-stack Todo app using React for front-end and used Node.js and Deno as back-end. You can either use Deno or Node.js as a standalone back-end application.

I use Node.js for my applications all the time. But using Deno for a full-stack application was new. I referred docs on Deno official website for this purpose. React is something I just started using and I am still a beginner on the learning…


MongoDB is a cross-platform document-oriented database program. Classified as a NoSQL database program, MongoDB uses JSON-like documents with optional schemas. MongoDB is developed by MongoDB Inc. and licensed under the Server Side Public License.

I am currently using Fedora 32 on my machine, and ran into a bunch of issues and errors trying to get MongoDB installed on my machine.

So this is the solution I figured could help you save a lot of time.

All below commands are to fired on terminal.

Step 1: Update Your System

Best to use an update system

sudo dnf update

Step 2…


Deno is the new buzzword since its release and we are all over it.

RESTful API’s have been around for a while, as a developer it’s almost an unwritten rule to learn how to make a REST API when dealing with a new technology. It makes you understand the basics of that technology and makes it easier to dive deep in that technology. As per Wikipedia — ‘RESTful Web services allow the requesting systems to access and manipulate textual representations of Web resources by using a uniform and predefined set of stateless operations’.

In the preceding article we built a basic Deno server and used its weather API to get location specific weather updates…

Deno is a runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript that is based on the V8 JavaScript engine and the Rust programming language. It was created by Ryan Dahl, original creator of Node.js, and is focused on productivity.

Deno was designed by Ryan Dahl wanted to fix all the inherent problems in Node.js®.

The technologies used in the creation of Deno include:

  • Rust (In Node.js C++ is used to write its core)
  • Tokio (the event loop written in Rust)
  • TypeScript (Deno supports both TypeScript and JavaScript)
  • V8 (Google’s JavaScript runtime used in Google Chrome and Node.js)

That’s it for specs for now…
