Getting some of my PDF files onto my Kindle has been a blessing in disguise. I really struggle to read documents from my phone, and doing this has made reading when I have a spare 15 mins on the go, a bucketload easier.

It’s not immediately obvious how to add documents to your kindle (other than plugging it in), so I wanted to share how I’ve been emailing documents to my kindle to save time and effort.

Below, you’ll find a quick guide on how to get PDFs and other documents to your Kindle, plus some detail on each step…


Making house hunting easier for couples pt 3

It’s now Sunday, and after an intense morning the day before building my first product, Deuce, I was ready to get back into it. I had a tight timeline, with only 3 hours to build the remainder of Deuce as I was due to meet some friends for a socially distanced pint in the cold.

To recap where I left off on Saturday, the code I built enables Deuce to:

  1. Log into the Rightmove account of userA

Summary

For those who skipped the first post in this series, here’s a snapshot summary of the problem…


GitHub is a service that enables developers to store their code virtually

What is GitHub used for:

Developers use it to share and collaborate on code they’re working on and keep track of the most current version of the code. They do this by loading it to a repository. Developers could be using it to show their code to the world (like me), ask for feedback from the wider developer community, or share it with their team who are working on the same project simultaneously.


The struggle is real!

Welcome to my first-ever blog post! I can’t begin to tell you how strange it feels to be writing this intro so much so I procrastinated writing it until I’d written the rest of this blog… writing doesn’t come naturally to me and this is my way of trying to change that.
