I wanted to learn python for a long time. Many people recommended this language for cross-platform software development, web apps development, machine learning, artificial intelligence, data analysis, automation and so on. So, this year I thought I would give it a try. While I was searching for a decent python tutorial designed for beginners, I found a tutorial by Mosh Hamedani. It is a FREE 6 hours long python course for beginners with few projects to get the practical knowledge.
What I learn from this tutorial, I will try to write it down and publish it as a series of blogs to reinforce my understanding of this knowledge. It will also work as a reference for the future whenever I need it.

This past Friday Facebook disclosed that they have identified a security breach in their network that directly affected 50 million users globally. As many as 90 million users have been automatically logged out and required to log in again from their respective devices. This is not the first time that a major tech giant got hacked (or their security have been breached) and I doubt that this would be the last time. As a consumer, it’s hard to keep track of everything we are doing online including signing up for newsletters, register for an account or simply using an email address to do something. And as more and more organizations are falling victim to the cyber attacks, more users data are being popped up in some shady internet sites. This is creating a huge problem as some organizations are trying to cover-up the security breach or just downplay the effect. And many don’t inform their users on time so that the user can minimize the exposure to the risk.
Luckily, Mozilla, the maker of open source web browser Firefox, has introduced a free and easy service to address this issue. They have introduced Firefox Monitor, a service that uses an email address to check whether that address has been affected by any publicly known hacking or already disclosed security breach. In addition, they also provide some basic password security and safety tips that a common internet user should know and follow in day to day activity over the internet.
Try it out and inform others about it. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
First of all, thank you for visiting my new website launched earlier today (1 July 2018). I’ve decided that I should follow the same advice that I give to my close friends and family members. This is one step towards that. From today onward, I’ll try to update it as much as possible with the things I do and follow everyday. I have great hopes and dreams regarding this. Thanks once again for visiting here.
