I’ve got access to GitHub Copilot technical preview recently and I wanted to test it out with a simple project.
I don’t know Blazor, and I haven’t done any front-end development for some time now, but that didn’t stop me to complete the proof-of-concept project with Copilot’s assistance. Please enjoy this unscripted video.
I’m a software developer and to do my job I have to sit on the computer at least 8 hours daily. Having a decent, comfortable, and robust keyboard to do my job is a requirement. My previous keyboard was a Razer BlackWidow V3. I’ve used it as my daily driver for gaming and programming, but since I started recording videos the keyboard’s clicking sound was a problem and I had to replace it. (I think I’ve also heard my neighbor once complain about it 😅)
When you’re ready to deploy your documentation website, say in Docker with Nginx the following Dockerfile and Nginx default.conf should do.
FROM python:3.9 as builder
COPY . .
RUN pip install mkdocs mkdocs-material && mkdocs build
FROM nginx as deploy
# Copy the build to the nginx directory.
COPY --from=builder /app/site/ /usr/share/nginx/html/
# Copy the nginx configuration to the nginx config directory.
COPY default.conf /etc/nginx/conf.d/
I thought that making videos will be easier that typing blog posts but to my surprise the difficulty is a bit higher. Fixing mistakes takes more time with videos and since I’m not that great of a presenter I struggle with presenting the content. Hopefully I will improve my skills with time and practice.
Have you ever tried to setup your Windows’s Remote Desktop functionality and failed with the following error message “logon attempt failed“, knowing that your credentials were correct and that you’re on the same Wi-Fi network with the computer you’re trying to access?
Well, I did.
Most of the solutions you’ll find on other blogs make you edit your Window’s registry, network settings and so on, which in my case was not needed, and it is somehow overkill.
Logging in with a password and my Microsoft account on the computer I wanted to setup Remote Desktop solved the issue.
What I had to do was to go in Settings > Accounts > Sign-in Options, disable Windows Hello PIN and all other sign in options, setup Password sign-in option and then relog on my PC.
