How to set a Default Time when Selecting a Date // AngularJS

angular-date

So I started working with AngularJS a few weeks ago to work on an internal project at my workplace. One of the features needed was to make a date range where the user can select a start date and an end date. The requirements also stated that the default time for the start date should be at 00:01 and the default time on the end date should be 23:59.

For the date range I used the bs-datepicker attribute from angular-strap – this library has all the bootstrap elements packaged for angular – and it works great. How did I solve my problem? Continue reading

Untitled 3

I was going to install Visual Studio Community 2013, but it asked me to uninstall Visual Studio 2013. I started checking some demos about Visual Studio Community 2013 (you can check the demo from Channel 9) and noticed that you can install the same tools as in Visual Studio Community 2013 to Visual Studio 2013. So let’s get started.

361

Among yesterday’s great product launches by Microsoft, was the FREE unrestricted version of Visual Studio – Visual Studio Community Edition 2013. What I didn’t notice is that “this version lets developers target any platform from desktop and mobile to web and cloud”. Instead of waiting for Visual Studio 2015, we can start creating Android and iOS applications as from today!

Bye Bye Nokia Lumia

LUMIA-1020-TEMPLATE-BY-JASKNI - height

Yesterday, 11th November, Microsoft officially unveiled their first Microsoft Lumia – Microsoft Lumia 535 It has the same design like most other Lumia’s, the biggest difference of all is the name. No more Nokia! I have been using Nokia phones like forever. At first I didn’t think the logo would make a difference. I love everything Microsoft so I thought I wouldn’t have any problems. But the Microsoft logo on a Lumia, at least for me, is really a no no. Continue reading

Nokia Reading is a Battery Drainer

BookStairs_Icon

I love everything Nokia (now Microsoft). My current phone is a Lumia 1520, the previous one was an 820, and I had the Lumia 900 and 800. I also love their software. I use the Here Drive daily, the Nokia Camera App which is the best when taking photos, and Nokia Creative Studio to edit them.

Lately I’ve started reading ebooks, currently reading Ultimatum by Simon Kernick, and used the Nokia Reading app to read them. I downloaded my ebooks from OneDrive directly from the app. It’s easy to use and I can pin my books to the Start Screen. Everything was well and good, until I started noticing that the battery was draining quickly. Continue reading
