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.

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 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. Run the following to do so: $ apt-get

Learn how to make an auto login bot with Autoit

Start by creating a new directory and make an autoit script. Edit the script and include IE.au3: #include    Suppose we're writing a script which will allow a anyone to sign in his facebook on a scheduled time automatically. It's simple, don't panic! You need to call a function with any name you want. Let's take loginfb() ! call ("loginfb") So, we only have to write the function loginfb now! Func loginfb() Global $oIE = _IECreate ("") Local $username = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "email") Local $password = _IEgetObjByName ($oIE, "pass") Local $button = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "loginbutton") _IEFormElementSetValue ($username, "") // your email here! _IEFormElementSetValue ($password, "") //your fb password here! Send("{Enter}") EndFunc $username and $password are variables. "email" and "pass" are the names given to the textarea

[Python]Publish your python project to PyPI

The Python Package Index, also known as PyPI, is a large repository of python packages. Millions of developers all around the world contribute to Python daily by creating python scripts and uploading to PyPI. In this blog post, I am going to write a simple python script that, on running, will print Hello World on the terminal. Then, going to upload this script to PyPI so that it can be installed on any platform easily using pip or pip3 . Requirements: 1. Github account 2. Basic knowledge of python 3. setuptools - (pip3 install setuptools) 4. wheel - (pip3 install wheel) By the end of this blog post, you should be able to print hello world using a single command: Let's get started! The first thing to do is find a unique name for your project. The name that I will call the Hello World script will be print_hello_world . At the time that I am writing this post, there is not package called print_hello_world  on  PyPI . Logically, after doing this tutorial, there might
