Today in the library I saw BBC micro:bit kit and I am quite excited about it. I have few weeks to play with it. I know it is a tiny micro programmable computer. Not sure how it works but looking forward to explore it.

I have been making lot of videos lately on my youtube channel and few other channels. I like making videos but I was thinking will people consume content in only video format in future? I doubt it. You never know but there is a something about writing that videos can never replace. Do you agree?

I bought my first Mac in 2013 but honestly I never used it a lot. I bought it to create a mobile app for a client and then later to watch movies and youtube videos but for the past 2 years I have been using Mac as my main computer and I am by no means an expert on using Mac but everyday I learn something good.

Today I was wondering how can I quickly view the directory structure of a folder. After doing a quick google search I found on utility called tree. Yes simple tree command that you can run on your mac but you need to install it first.

Just type the following command. I am assuming you have brew already on your mac. If not then go to https://brew.sh and download it.

  1. brew install tree

That is it really. Now go ahead and try this command.

  1. $tree

Not really, writing has always been my favourite thing to do. these days although I have been making lot of videos. Reason is simple. I am liking it and I realise that videos are the future. That doesn't mean that people will stop writing or reading it will stay forever.

I started creating tutorial videos for Structure app in Jira. It will be a series of videos which I will organise in a playlist.

Check here https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_E9T0Z4ua15Dnv8IhB9H8fX23Gd_jRdP

This is the link to the playlist. I have tried creating short videos so it is easy for everyone to follow and at the same time you can just watch videos relevant to you.

If you have no prior experience on using Structure then start with the first video in the playlist.

Enjoy.

So this is my first post in 2019. Happy new year to myself 😊 have fun Ravi in 2019. Lately lot of changes happened in my life. Overall life is good and relaxed as of now. I hope it stays the same. I still need to finalise my 2019 goals. I can share some of them here like - writing one more book, make lot of videos, expand my technical knowledge, become fluent in French, exercise and stay happy.

I will share the exact list.

Recently I started making lot of videos. I never bothered about YouTube all these years but now I think it is a good idea to share. Above all it is my own personal record of things happening in my life that I can share. I have few channels now - Ravi Sagar which is for tech stuff, Desi BlackBerry Boy is for personal videos fory near and dears, Planet Unveiled is for travel and Desi Boys Fitness is for sharing fitness journey. My friend Vinod and I will be working on the last 2 channels.

I am creating a section on this site to easily find my tech and educational videos. I will organise them properly here. You can check them at https: //www.ravisagar.in/videos

I hope you like them 😊

Let's see how it goes.

Happy new year.

Welcome 2019

Feels good to wear a suit, it automatically boosts your confidence by 500% but of course it is lot of hassle to wear it and when wearing a suite you a little conscious as well about your appearance, but sometimes I do think that we should dress up well everyday when going to work. Your appearance does make a big difference.
