Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPperfectpair Weekend Hashtag...

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPperfectpair

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post every week announcing the latest project.

Some things are just better together. This weekend, the goal is to take photos and videos that capture duos that complement and enhance each other, as in this featured photo from Mark Abramson (@markabramsonphoto). Here are some tips to get you started:

  • A hammock and a book, coffee and bagels, two best friends — some things just naturally go together. As you go about your weekend, take photos of some of your own perfect pairs.
  • Not every match is so simple! Keep an eye out for more surprising duos — much like this pedestrian and matching billboard — that might be hidden in plain sight.
  • Once you’ve found an interesting pairing, how can you use camera tools to further enhance the match? Try taking a #Boomerang of two running buddies or a video of a dog and cat strolling through your backyard.

PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPperfectpair hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Dancer Angelnae Randalle’s Passion and Persistence

To learn more about Angelnae, follow @angel_dancer_1 on Instagram.

“The more the better.” This is Angelnae Randalle’s (@angel_dancer_1) stance when it comes to practice. On average, the 14-year-old, who currently lives in Michigan, rehearses 24 to 30 hours a week — and that number only goes up when a competition or convention is on the horizon. You might be surprised to learn that Angelnae started dancing just three years ago; her grandmother signed her up for her first class and passed away shortly thereafter. “She was my biggest supporter,” says Angelnae. “I think she is very proud of me.”

Open Source - Vie, 10/20/2017 - 09:03

We are stepping into an era where installable apps will become history, where all our applications and services will live in the cloud.

Despite Stage 4 Breast Cancer, Brittney Beadle Thrives

This post is in honor of #BreastCancerAwareness month, observed in October in the US.

Brittney Beadle (@brittneybeadle) does not put off anything for tomorrow. “Do it now,” she advises. “Live in the moment and enjoy your life.” In May 2015, Brittney was diagnosed with metastatic (stage 4) breast cancer, at the age of 18. “I felt I was alone,” Brittney says. “There are some young women in their 20s who I found, but still no one who was “my age” young, with breast cancer.” By sharing her journey, she hopes to help others in a similar position. “Whenever I have to go through a new treatment that’s really hard — like when I had radiation to my brain — I think, ‘OK. Yes, this sucks. I have to do this. But you know what? I get to live.’”

Crowdsourcing the way to a more flexible strategic plan

Open Source - Jue, 10/19/2017 - 09:00

When I became CIO at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2015, I confronted the same mandate every new IT leader faces when assuming the role: outlining, developing, and executing a strategic plan. The pressure to do this swiftly and immediately can be immense—and I think many CIOs feel compelled to articulate and hand down fully formed plans on Day 1. After all, that's typically the quickest way to assert your position and vision as a leader.

But I like to take a different approach. I don't dictate my team's initial goals. I open them up.

Learn how to program in Python by building a simple dice game

Open Source - Mié, 10/18/2017 - 09:02

Python is an all-purpose programming language that can be used to create desktop applications, 3D graphics, video games, and even websites. It's a great first programming language because it can be easy to learn and it's simpler than complex languages like C, C++, or Java. Even so, Python is powerful and robust enough to create advanced applications, and it's used in just about every industry that uses computers. This makes Python a good language for young and old, with or without any programming experience.

That's where a template comes in. A template ensures that your book has a consistent look and feel. Luckily, creating a template is quick and easy, and the time and effort you spend on it will give you a better-looking book.

Wise Words from 13-Year-old Leia Immanuel

This post is in celebration of #NationalBodyConfidenceDay in the US.

Comfortable, secure, confident in your own skin — this is what body positivity means to Leia Immanuel (@artdr3am). For the past three years, Leia has dealt with hormonal acne. “I used to try and cover it all up with makeup,” says the eighth-grade student from New York. “Slowly, I began to accept that my acne is natural. I’ve grown more comfortable in my skin and body, and it’s changed the way I’ve seen people and the world.” Her advice to others? “Self-confidence comes differently for everyone. Being confident in your skin takes time and learning. Stay true to yourself and most importantly, keep an open mind. People are different, and when you accept that, you can accept your differences.”

How to use an Arduino and Raspberry Pi to turn a fiber optic neural network into wall art

A 7-step plan for engaging your community's naysayers

Open Source - Mar, 10/17/2017 - 09:02

When you practice open communication and invite feedback, you get a lot valuable input that can improve your ideas, projects, and decisions. Yet one of the most common questions I hear is this: "That's all well and good, and I agree, it's best to open yourself up to that kind of feedback. But what about that one guy. . .?"

You know the one they're talking about. It's Mr. Grumpy, who inevitably shows up and says things like, "Oh, that won't work here" or "We already tried something like that," yet never seems to offer any helpful or productive alternatives.

The origin and evolution of FreeDOS

Open Source - Mar, 10/17/2017 - 09:01

I grew up in the 1970s and 1980s. My parents wanted to expose my brother and me to computers from an early age, so they bought an Apple II clone called the Franklin Ace 1000. I'm sure the first thing we used it for was playing games. But it didn't take long before we asked, "How does it work?" Our parents bought us a book about how to program in Applesoft BASIC, and we taught ourselves.
