GitHub and Cheat sheets

Getting comfortable with GitHub branches, publishing using GitHub Desktop app and Cygwin Server Services with Putty. The first week with GitHub was not easy as I do not use the Linux shell for often and the github “origin” keyword required little getting use to.

As all things are not created equal, I am learning to create some cheat sheets for softwares and applications. It is not humanly possible to remember all things all the time and I am starting to notice my limitations in recalling at moment’s notice specific commands, shortcuts or steps in any given project.

For the super blessed one search online may result in instant answer, but for people like me the search result (a.k.a Artificial Intelligence) seems to play games with mind. It never returns the same results over time and it takes too much of the precious time when trying to solve a problem within minutes, so I can move on to the next task. On the other hand scanning a book for solution or waiting for the peers to reply to the question seems endless hours.

On many occasions the cheat sheet would not solve the problem but it can surely reduce the time from searching online or waiting on peers; as time is of the essence when facing multiple tasks that are needed to be completed.

The list below should be customized to your preference as it is the list that has worked for me.

  1. Microsoft Excel
  2. Google Drive – Spreadsheet
  3. Microsoft OneNote
  4. Notepad text files

Completed UiPath - RPA Developer Advance Training

After a month of training, with late nights and weekends I have completed the UiPath RPA Developer Advance Training.

The Level 1 Foundation Training pretty much covered all the basics of Desktop studio and workflows, only draw back was I started with the default foundation course which was for 2016, and all document reference links where pointing to 2016 version. I didn't understand it during the foundation training and kept switching to 2018 version document/page.

Only after completing the Foundation course that I realized, I was suppose to have started with the 2018 version of Level 1 Foundation Training, but as it was optional I didn't have to retake the 2018 version, the 2016 was good enough for moving to level 2.

The Level 2 Orchestrator 2018.3 Training as good. It gave good understanding of Queue's, Jobs, and schedules and I was able to complete the level two much faster then the level 1.

The Level 3 UiPath Advanced Training was bit tough as it involved the assignme…

KB 294807 - IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe

Resolved issue today of IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe by deleting "Windows Temp" folder files.

We used Cygwin to customize some permissions of "Windows Temp" folder and after few hours the website stopped working.

The search online was giving all kinds of different solution except what I was looking for.

I was hoping the stackoverflow will have answers but even this post didn't cover the issue I was running into.
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15302080/fastcgi-500-failure

Restarting the IIS didn't work, but deleting temp files cleared the issue, but now the problem is how long before the site will go down again?

Hope the issue is resolved for ever, if not; I will update this post later.

Grow with Google Scholarship / Udacity

Grow with Google Scholarship / Udacity

Today on Jan 11, 2018, I have received the Grow with Google Scholarship.

I am really excited because, previously I had joined Udacity to complete a Nano Degree, but due to price and family priorities, I had to abandon that goal.

Today, I feel like I am getting a second chance to give it another shot to completing my Nano Degree.
