Rick And Morty – A Show That You Should Know About

Rick And Morty – A Show That You Should Know About

Let me start by saying that I’m very picky and skeptical about all TV shows. Judging from the promos I suspected that it was going to be just another lazily animated show with some cheap comedy and cheap standards. I had never been so wrong. It might seem that is a silly knock off to the “Back to the Future” franchise, but it has perks of its own. The hilarious and bizarre adventure of an alcoholic scientist and his awkward grandson. The writing was fantastic and the animation was well crafted. Behind all the jokes, each episode surprisingly has a strong message and whether you can relate to it or not, you won’t really feel like the end of each episode was a bummer. The second the show starts you can tell that the characters fit perfectly with each other, and involved with the craziness that happens in the universe with Rick and Morty, they are immediately hilarious and extremely creative at the same time. In this show, things that will make you laugh are dark and awkward at times which succeed every time. The absolutely genius writing and clever character personalities is basically what makes this show one of a kind. If you’re a fan of “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy” and haven’t found a show to remotely match its standards, look no further there is this new kid on the block with huge potential. We will see how long this can be maintained. The writers show a gift for twisting & adding-to old plots into new shows. Hopefully that’s a stable arrangement.

Rick and Morty is a totally enjoyable show. I have been following this show ever since it aired on Adult Swim and never have had a dull moment. I would personally recommend this show to everyone out there. I hope that eventually this show will grow amongst a more colossal audience and it’s influence will shine in the work of other animators and comedians. This is truly something special!

GIT Cheat Sheet

GIT Cheat Sheet

We can all agree that git has become everyone’s favorite versioning system lately. Having experience with SVN and Git I can safely say that Git is not actually better but it is different. The key advantage is that it is decentralized. With Git, you can do practically anything offline, because everybody has their own repository. Making branches and merging between branches has never been easier. Git is complex, powerful and fast (since it works for Linux kernel of course). Every company and business setup has its own workflow and with SVN in my company we had a tough time adopting the version system with our business case. Git is very flexible and with its TIMTOWTDI approach will help is meet our goals. Well, everything has its pros and cons even though the pros will obviously outrun the cons, note that Git is much harder to learn, lacks a good GUI and revisions do not have version numbers. Below I have complied a few necessary git commands in the form of a cheat sheet:

CSS Variables

CSS Variables

CSS introduces the notion of cascading variables in order to help solve the maintainability challenge.

The good news is that variables are now supported in vanilla CSS.

Variables in CSS follow the same scope and inheritance rules that CSS generally follows. The easiest location to place your variables is at the root level, which will allow any class, pseudo class selector to inherit it.
