Using Multer to Upload Photos for Node and React

Posted by Ninja Space Content on Sunday, February 28, 2021, In : node 
This month, I learned to used Multer for a react project that I've been working on. It took me close to 6 days to get both the back-end and front end to work for Multer. There were times when I really struggled but in the end, I didn't give up and it's so rewarding to finally figured it out. Being able to upload a file successfully, especially a photo, and have it save to the database was something I was thinking about learning to do since December. 

Many of the errors I had at the beginning w...

Utilizing React Bootstrap Library and What I Found Out for my First Time

Posted by Ninja Space Content on Saturday, February 20, 2021, In : react 
I started learning JavaScript in July 2020 and had been using strictly CSS to style my own apps but I've decided to take a stab at bootstrap with React Bootstrap. There's a learning curve and at first, I thought, it'd just be faster if I style all of this myself with CSS. However, I know that in a lot of job descriptions, bootstrap comes up in the tech stack as a preferred skill to have. After working with it, I realized, it could save me a lot of time making sure everything is formatted corr...

Posted by Ninja Space Content on Thursday, February 18, 2021, In : postgres 
I'm currently working on building a postgres database for a new project and wanted to get what I have so far deployed on Heroku. Something has changed since I've last deployed a database(db) project on Heroku, which was only 2 months ago!

After a quick...

Installatron is a nightmare to use as a Contact Us Form

Posted by Ninja Space Content on Saturday, February 6, 2021, In : tech issues 
I recently deployed one of my websites on Godaddy's shared web hosting and decided to use one of their third party integrations called Installatron that's under their Cpanel. It has been a nightmare to get it working, even though it seems like the easiest thing to integrate.

I have talked to over 5 different tech support reps from Godaddy via their chat tool and it seems like the chat gets timed out or something because like every 30 or 45 minutes, I get a new tech support person. It's a pain ...

I did the chicken dance before my four interviews with a big six company

Posted by Ninja Space Content on Friday, February 5, 2021, In : interviewing 
I had an interview with one of the big six companies earlier today. When I say 'big six', I'm referring to one of the following: Amazon, Facebook, Google, Netflix, Apple or Microsoft. I'm not going to tell you which one because I signed an NDA and I want to go further and don't want to jinx anything by telling you the exact one. I'll let you guess!

The company had me do 4 interviews in one day and because we're still in a pandemic, it was done remotely. Normally, they would have me come to the...
