What one requires to be an inventor | Software Developer

I listen to my fellows saying they’re the software engineers. Some saying they created a game by editing the source code of the Award Winning game series Grand Theft Auto and then turning it into a local city’s crisis game and blah and blah and blah, wait one more blah. But I can it in their face, the fear of getting questioned for What language was the code written in? What were the changes that you made and how? What is the DirectX usage in it? They would get their hairs ripped off by their own hands I swear.

I’m a software developer but I confess I know nothing about a programming language, all that I know is that all methods have to return a value in the data type of what it was set it to be unless its data type is set to void data type. But wait, what do I need to create a new software or a new item for the public to love my art, my level of skill? It isn’t the Visual Studio for developing the software, it isn’t the version of the programming level used in the process.

Actually it is the main idea, or the theme of the project. The innovation used for that project. The basic idea of how it would help you and others whereas it would leave behind other softwares of its own kind. That is the thing that leads us to a new invention. OS are of many kinds and before Windows ever got developed, there were many command-link OSs in the market and were being used up. Why did Bill Gates develop Windows? What made him believe that he can create something different?

It was that idea, that theme that he had at that time when he was about to develop the Windows. Not the programming environment, what we call SDK (Software Development Kit).

Walk on your own path, and let fame follow you.

We have heard alot about Einstein, Newton, let’s skip it and talk about Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Lary Page. You guys must know about that even better than Newton. Really, who wants to read and learn Physics when you can learn programming language in a simple and easy way. But, have you ever tried paying some time to read about their life cycle instead of the net worth? I am sure you never had even thought of doing so. Why? Because all we people are interested in is the money. 

But, Mr. Bill Gates (richest person on Earth as per March, 2014) did try his best to learn the Computer and its working technique when he was just 15 – 16 years old child in his school-college Library. At just 13 he knew what Lisp is, what FORTRAN is, what Machine Language (nightmare for the new generation of developers) is. Mark, founder of Facebook, youngest billionare, invented a chat for himself to talk to his dad at his Dental clinic. Lary page, founded Google as a project for his Ph.D. There are many other examples for us in our daily life. They never thought of being famous, they never talked about money. They did what they liked and then they got it all in their hands. They walked their way, fame followed them. 

We people on the other hand, are following the way fame is walking on. I would definitely count myself in this group. We people, when write a simple program to execute and show a ‘Hello World!’ message on screen, we brag in happiness. But, is that it? The main thing we people should worry about while doing something should be how are we going to help our fellows by this? Microsoft is helping out other people in many ways, I; as a developer, am being helped by them in source code, I get a lot of help from them in every aspect. Their software development tools, their social work. 

Facebook, connecting people at every corner of the globe. Google, helping people gain knowledge. Mr. Julian Assange, co-founded WikiMedia project to help people get all information in one place. Jeff Atwood, developed Stack Overflow just to help his fellow developers get help in their buggy code. 

That’s the path of success. They got fame when they didn’t want it in the first place. All they were doing was what they wanted to do, not what fame needed in them. 

The first thing we should do must be to take a note on what and how’s our work gonna help others. Newton, when apple fell on his could have eaten it up, but, he tried to find out why did apple fall on him, Ironically: Maybe trying to tell people not to sleep under an apple tree, who might get hurt sometime. 

Why discoveries are rare now adays

We have read alot about the discoveries of our ancestors and their fellow beings. But what happened now? Where has all that ancestral spirit gone?

The main thing nowadays is media, we people don’t try to make up some ideas or some new stuff for benefit of others. We just create objects to get fame. Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook (theFacebook at that time) because that was the idea of his own to let his fellows talk to each other and to come to know to each other. It got perfect applause.

Nowadays, young boys try to create something newFacebook, just to try to get fame among the girls on their block. But, hehe, who knows they’re not getting something. They just want to come up onto Media, and try to tell how much hard work it was to build (steal the source code for, buy the source code from a website for, hire a freelancer for) that one particular website.

But generally the only thing they need to do, is to get educated. Once a person has enough knowledge about what he is doing or what he is trying to build, he would be helpfull for people. He might try to do that on scientific ways.

  1. Observe their environment. Look for what is missing here
  2. Note it down, and make a certain criteria of what can be done here to make it easy to handle.
  3. Try some of the Models around. Try getting some idea from the previous inventions.
  4. Make something of your own.
  5. Test it! If it works, then let people know of it. People would help you earn rep, don’t try to earn rep for unusefull objects.

I am pretty much sure, that’s the path NewtonEinsteinIbn-al-Haitham used. Now, they might have long gone, but their names are still alive more than our own name.

Muslim rejected my words, because I listen to Eminem (Infidel)

Hehe, today when I was online posting my answers to other peoples’ posts on Islam Stack ExchangeMy Profile, the asker looked up for my Profile, and there he found my favourite qoutes! Which in turn were of eminem, my favourite rapper and a partially mentor for me. 

I tried helping him alot in understand that there is nothing that wouldn’t be forgiven, and hehe it was shocking for me, when he said that he is doubted by answer for the reason that I like to listen to an infidel. 

Well, that’s a bit sick, or may I say double standard thing, on one side he is saying Thanks for my well detailed answer, and on the other hand he was saying: “Go fuck yourself you fan of infidel; Hell is where you dwell”. That’s not what Muslims do brother! 

Its my life, its my choice of whom so ever I want to listen to, no one would force me to do what I don’t want to do. I listen to Eminem, for he makes me smile in every situation of my life. When I am helping someone, I am not the person I am when I am listening to Eminem. When I am doing something, I try to focus my attention at that particular event instead of splitting my whole attention. 

For those you hate people of other religion:

I want you to doubt me, I don’t want you to be-lieve!

‘Cause this is something, that I must use to suc-ceed!

And if he don’t like me, then F*ck you, self es-teem.

I have no more words to say, I am still surprised! Wow, just wow! 

Boring is – staying at home

I had holidays of 3 days, but on the third day I thought of going out. But, today (third day) I got up when the van left. Now, voila! I am at home.

But, I am missing friends. I counted days to go back to university and college, and today I just kept on sleeping.

Today I came to know one thing afterall, no matter how much you hate school, college, university or your academy or institute. You will always miss the fun you have in them.

Web CMS – ‘VMS’

I am going to develop a new CMS. It would be available soon for public use. Here are the ideas that are currently in my mind.

  1. Name: VMS
  2. Availability: Public

What I think, of providing is something like the following: 

  1. User roles

    Creating user profiles, giving them permissions to create new users, delete users, edit and delete the user permissions (Admin level only)
  2. Pages

    Letting the users create pages, set privacy to them, delete and modify the pages. 

    Users will be able to see the pages, and comment on them. Owners and Admins will be able to delete or modify the comments or the pages if required.

  3. Authorized access

    Using the user’s credentials, letting them to surf the website. At the same time, letting the Admins to control where a number of users can go to and where they are not allowed to. 

  4. Multimedia

    Letting the users to add media content to the site. Viewing and downloading would be provided, Admins and owners would be allowed to delete the content.

This is what I have for now, I would like to get comments on what can be added to this CMS app. Please provide some information for that and some more suggestions that can be worked on this project. 

Thanks.
