Why most programmers start with Hello World?

Hello World

Hello World is one of the most famous program tested by each and every programmer at some point of their life. It is specially being used when either someone tries to learn a new programming language, which is probably in most cases, or for something else. https://pixelduke.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/jnbdec2008-hello-world-example2.png

It's simply a script of about 4 to 10 lines(depends which languages you're using), which when compiled, displays a Hello World on your screen.

It's true that it's very simple, but from a beginner's point of view, it's a great feeling. You feel the rush of adrenaline after realizing you've just, successfully, communicated through the computer.
I'm quite sure after doing a Hello World script, you'll have an idea of what you're willing to do after that. Positive point is that, you just found a way starting it.
The first Hello World appeared in 1973 in "Tutorial Introduction to the Language B" by Kernighan.

Let's take a closer look!
Originally created by Brian Kernighan, he also wrote the definitive guide on the C Programming Language, which contained the examples that, eventually, started the tradition.

Unfortunately, the legend doesn't remember exactly when or why he chose the words "Hello, World". When asked what crossed his mind for choosing these specific words, he answers Memory is dim now. What I do remember is that I had seen a cartoon that showed an egg and a chick and the chick was saying, “Hello, world”.
It's fascinating how such a simple phrase has been marked in history and known to have made a big change in technology. Ever since, a lesson plan with the name “Hello, world” can be found in every programming-related tutorials.
I, personally, find that the words “Hello, world” fits in the purpose, although, it's something very basic, but you can actually get an idea of how it works.

P.S: I was only wondering why “Hello, world” is used by most people out there who are trying to code. So I searched a little bit and blogd about it.

How to disable SSLv3 in ubuntu?

Why disable SSL 3.0? SSLv3 is not sufficiently secure. The replacement versions, in particular, Transport Layer Security(TLS) 1.2, are way more secure and capable protocols.  Poodle attack and End of SSLv3  In late September, a team at Google discovered a serious vulnerability(POODLE) in SSLv3 that can be exploited to steal confidential information, e.g things like cookies and passwords, enabling the latter to access a user's private account on a social website. You can learn more about SSL on our Android app SSLearn. Steps: Firstly, let's start with an Update: After the update, install apache: Note: If you already have apache installed, you may skip this step.

How to install the FReMP Stack on Ubuntu 20.04?

Technology keeps on evolving everyday and developers constantly look for more and more things to get their hands-on. In this article, I will be introducing a new full stack framework, called FReMP . The abbreviation used is not the best one, but it just gets the work done in justifiable ways. What on earth is FReMP stack? The FReMP stack is a highly scalable full stack framework, which can be used to build awesome web apps. The acronym stands for F lask, Re actJS, M ongodb and P ython. Unlike other famous stacks such as MEAN and MERN, the FReMP stack uses Python to handle back-end operations. Examples of such operations can be machine learning and artificial intelligence operations, web scraping tools or digital image processing. Step 0: Update your list of installed packages While this is optional, it is always a good practice to update your list of packages and upgrade them for newer versions before starting any installation on your environment.
