This tutorial will cover the basics of web development with PHP from scratch for beginners.

Setting up The Environment

First, let’s set up our environment in our machine for PHP development.

We can either use Apache server or Nginx server to run PHP script but to make thing easier I would suggest to use XAMPP or WAMPP.

Note that, I will be using XAMPP throughout this article.

You may find XAMPP here. The installation is fairly easy.

Once you have it installed, go to C:/xampp or if you choose to install in different directory, find the xampp folder in the directory that you have chosen before.

Find the xampp_start.exe and start it. This will start both the Apache server…

In this tutorial, we are going to look at how to set up a login system in Angular and Hapi.js.


The purpose of this article is to provide a quick and easy-to-understand walkthrough for beginners, for those who want to pick up new things, or for those who want to refresh their understanding.

I can still remember the time when I was trying to pick up these things and I was not able to find really good articles that cover all the basic, everything was pretty much too brief. That is why this article will try to cover pretty much all the basic things that you need to know to get you started and take off from there.

We will…

In this tutorial, we are going to build a simple login using React for the frontend application and Koa(Typescript) for the backend application

Aside from React and Koa, we will be using Objection.js (ORM) and MySQL (database).


First, we need to make sure we already have Node.js installed.

Setting Up The Koa Backend App

Let’s first set up the backend application, then we will continue with the frontend, React.

We will be using Koa for our backend framework. Originally, Koa comes in Javascript but since Typescript has been getting a lot of attention, we will be using Typescript to set up Koa.

Run the following command.

In this tutorial, we will be using Django that serves as our backend application and create both REST API and GraphQL with MySQL for the database.


Django is a Python framework that is open-source and follows the model-template-views architectural pattern. If you have used a framework the follows the model-template-views before, picking up Django will be much more easier.

To follow along with this tutorial, make sure you have these installed:

  1. Python
  2. MySQL (I am using XAMPP which is easier to setup)

Without further ado, let’s get started.


First, let’s create a folder for our project and then let’s create…

Here are some tips that I would like to share with all beginner developers and maybe for those who are interested to become one.

  1. There’s no such thing as a do-it-all programming language. Each language has its pluses and minuses. Learn to understand the pluses and minuses of each languages.
  2. Its always a good thing to know a lot of languages but really make sure that you have one language that you are comfortable with and know in depth.
  3. Programming is really fun and interesting with so many languages to learn but remember to go at your own pace.
  4. A…

In this tutorial we are going to build a simple login using Angular for the frontend application and FastAPI for the backend application.

Angular & FastAPI

To start things off, let’s first create our Angular app for the frontend. After we have finish creating the necessary thing in our frontend app, then only will we move to our backend.

Run below command. Make sure you have Node js installed.

npm install -g @angular/cli

ng new my-app

cd my-app

npm start

With that, you will have you frontend application now running. But its the default application. …

The idea of this post is to list down most of the problems that you had with Git or will have in the future as well as some common questions about Git.

Of course, we will discuss about the best possible solution to solve the problem and answer the questions.

Problems & Questions

1. What is a branch in Git?

To quote from Atlassian, “A branch represents an independent line of development. Branches serve as an abstraction for the edit/stage/commit process.

In simpler terms, a branch in Git is like a separate copy of your source code but not physically. Any work in a branch will not affect the other…

Python in 2020 is still consider as one of the top languages and a lot of people are still using this language. Mainly because Python can be considered as a casual and easy to type language.

You can write a Python script to achieve a lot of purpose like starting up a server, creating an API endpoint, build a website with Python’s various web frameworks, data science, machine learning and a lot more.

In this post, we are going to talk about Object-Oriented Programming in Python. We are going to see to what extend can we use OOP in Python…

Welcome folks! In this tutorial we are going to write PHP code to connect to the database OOP style! In case if you are not familiar with OOP or Object-Oriented Programming, you can check out my previous post here.

We will write code to connect to two databases which are MongoDB and MySQL. I will be using XAMPP in this tutorial or if you want to use a standalone Apache or Nginx, feel free to do so.


A database connection is a big part in any web development. Often time, many new developers will find themselves putting their database credentials…
