What am doing and Why am not blogging that much

Okay, so basically I have few Ideas which I want to work on, some have been already in my head just needed the time, some just got into my head, so for sure I’ll work with what I already have.

So far I have got the domains, I do know where am going to host them :cough: Scaleway :cough:, and I already contacted one of the companies and got their permission to use their logo. But now am in the phase where I need to design the website and do all the HTML before I move on to the main part, and to accomplish this am going to start learning Sketchapp, HTML part is not the issue, designing the site & having the nice layout is.

So my first project which am going to work on, is not going to be a startup nor has any business relation, but it will be technical and the plan is to release it for free but with the ability for anyone to donate if they like using bitcoin, and yes am ready to take e-money not regular money, for many reasons I don’t think this post is the one which I’ll talk about it.

Wish me luck everyone, and I hope to see you joining the project once I lunch it.

Do we really need all those live streaming services ?

My main question may not be clear, but now a days many companies started to create a live streaming functionality, we have periscope ( from twitter ), Facebook Live, and as I remember youtube has added the ability to live streaming from your mobile.

My concerns not about the service or the company which provide such service, even though its something we should always consider, but the impact which such services on our life, for example this is what I have noticed about periscope and how people use it.

  1. While they are driving the cars, I mean you are already putting your life in risk, why you need to put other people life in risks too ?? like for example a Famous Turkish actor badly wounded in car crash broadcast live on Periscope , yes he was not the one who recording the session, but he is not focusing on the road ??
  2. While you are in duty in your Military base ? I mean really ? you are in a military base and you are streaming ? am not sure if you ever read the manual about the military service and which acts are NOT allowed ? like taking pictures or streaming ??!!
  3. While you are in your work at the police station, at the office .. etc.
  4. While you are in the GYM, I mean really ??!! who care unless you are a trainer who has a life training session.
  5. While you are in the bed still a sleep ??!!
  6. While you are heading out of home, I mean really you are telling everyone and describe the structure of your home to everyone online ?? have you ever though that this might be a case where your home got robbery ?

And the list goes on and one, and am not going to list the usage where some under age teens using such service.

so do we really need such invasion to our privacy more than we already have ?

Have a local copy from your Udemy course

Ok, lets make it simple and fast, one of the main issue which I can see in Udemy is that you cant always have the video for the courses which you bought, some will give you the ability to download the course, others will not ..

after small search on the internet I found udemy-dl which is a tool built using python and will download the videos automatically so you can watch them offline, so how to use it and where we can get it ?

to get it you can click here, and check the source, of if you are on mac/linux you can install it via pip  like the following

pip install udemy-dl

you can upgrade it using the following command :

pip install --upgrade udemy-dl

to download a course you can just execute the command :

udemy-dl https://www.udemy.com/COURSE-NAME

then it will as you for your username/password and start to download .

PS: change the COURSE-NAME with your course name which you can get from the URL like :

udemy

and thats it.

Happy learning.
