Setting Up Virtual Environment

This post was originally published on my blog — https://thecodingpie.com

A virtual environment is a tool that helps to keep your current project and all its dependencies isolated from your main system and the other projects you are working on.

To make it a bit clearer imagine this scenario — you have two Django projects namely ProjectOne and ProjectTwo. Unfortunately, your ProjectOne wants to run in Django 1.0, and your ProjectTwo needs Django 3.0. How would you do that? If you install Django globally on your system, then it would be impossible to satisfy the above condition. And here’s where the concept of virtual environment comes in handy. If you set up a virtual environment for both of your projects, then each project and all its dependencies would be isolated from each other in its own virtual environment and both won’t get mingled. So your ProjectOne can use Django 1.0 in its own environment and ProjectTwo can work in Django 3.0. Thus we can safely work on our project at any time without any worry! …

Decades ago, Javascript was only considered just as a client-side scripting language. Its full potential was locked in the browser world. At that time it was impossible to use Javascript for building things beyond a website. But then things got changed when Node.js entered the party.

Node.js, as you all know, is a Javascript runtime environment which means that you can run your Javascript code outside the browser like directly in your computer/server itself. This allows developers to use Javascript to accomplish pretty much anything other popular server-side scripting languages like python, ruby, or PHP can do. …

This is my first Medium blog post and I hope everyone will like this.

Now to the topic…

Do you know about ISS? ISS aka International Space Station is an artificial habitable satellite that orbits Earth roughly 16 times per day. In just one day, the station travels about the distance it would take to go from Earth to the moon and back! ISS is mainly used as a laboratory to perform some space-related experiments. At the time of writing this article, there are three people up on the space station right now. And another interesting fact is that, If the conditions are favorable, then you can see the ISS with your own naked eyes from Earth’s surface! (I had seen it 3 times!). Sounds interesting right? But wait, how do I know where the ISS is currently flying over? …
