I created OpenChords music lab with the dream of making music more accessible. I wanted to make it easier to write what previously seemed to me to be complicated chord progressions. OpenChords simplifies the writing process and is also a great learning tool. You can play chord progressions, transpose the key, invert the chords, and add seventh, ninth and thirteenth for a lot of unique variation and sounds. I recently added some new features making the app more responsive and more fun, and I also added piano sounds to the web version (soon to come to mobile). It's definitely worth checking it out. OpenChords is available in a web browser or as an Android app.

What is Uglek? Uglek.com is a simple social media site.
Share anything you like here, like, follow, and build a following. I built this site using Flask, at flask.palletsprojects.com. Flask is a really nice microframework for creating websites like these. I want to make this a place to share my work and interact with fans. You are welcome to post anything you like here, just keep it appropriate.
I've been adding lots of new features and making fixes to the site. I know you may be wondering why this site was down, and I will explain thoroughly in further posts. Previously, the site suffered a cyber-attack where no user information was compromised, but the site was plagued by bots and spam. There were few real users on the site, even though it had over 50,000 accounts. It used this same domain name.
Previously I wasn't letting users share images on the site, only allowing them to be linked in, but now I have added the feature of image uploads so the site will have lots of nice pictures to look at. I'm going to post more about my music, work, and life, and I hope you will too.
This will be another interesting and hopefully more successful attempt at putting some content together. I would like to try to get this site monetized with Google AdSense in the near future and even pay top users a share of the ad revenue, but I won't be showing too many ads. This is a space to explore and learn, as well as share with your friends.
Please enjoy uglek.com for free. Thanks for reading!

What is flask framework? A Flask application is a Python module.
The applications which are typically built in Flask can have all sorts of data in them. Flask is a very flexible framework and you can build very complex web applications that can handle dozens or hundreds of different objects and protocols with very little code. This flexibility comes from Flask's use of Pythonic syntax and its use of the wt library for handling remote APIs. So why isn't Flask better than Django? I think the key difference is Django's focus on developing large, complex web applications that adhere to the Django model, as a number of sites (including jQuery), Django Mix, and other Django projects describe. This sort of framework has proven itself to be very popular and provides a number of benefits. However, you can write applications that behave and behave similarly with incredible flexibility very well in Flask as well. This sort of flexibility is what is needed in a web framework, and that's what is going to win many developers over to using Flask, as I already have been.
One of the things I really like about Flask is that it is geared towards building small applications that should probably be portable across operating systems and different distros. This is great for small projects that don't have a lot of code, and can therefore be written in an efficient manner.
The most common way of writing Flask applications is through the Flask "duck" style API, which focuses heavily on clean separation of concerns, and most importantly: caching.
With Flask you can register a handler for each and every HTTP request a client makes. You can also register additional handlers for sub-requests within a "request". You can then setup all your code so that only one HTTP request at a time will be handled. So if your web application has a whole bunch of requests in it, you don't have to worry about accidentally forgetting to log in or something like that because if you make one request, Flask will log you in. All of these different handlers can have their own handlers for different HTTP methods, for example, POST, PUT, etc.
I built this site using Flask, and it's a good way to post the content I want to share and let others do the same. I have all the URL handlers I need to run a convenient and easy to use social API I am sharing with you. I hope you enjoy this work and take some time to comment and share with your friends.

What is social media?
Social media refers to websites, mobile apps, social networks, social bookmarking, live video streams, cloud services, and any other information services that connect diverse and disparate social networks. Users usually interact with social media via chat applications that allow real-time communication. It is helpful to view the dynamic engagement that social media offers as an opportunity for learning, social interaction, and conversation. Users may become exposed to new ideas, ideas about potential partners and collaborators, educational content, event information, job opportunities, and community information through social media. These interactions can form meaningful relationships and can lead to new opportunities for professional growth and personal empowerment. Social media provides a voice for people and encourages them to influence and create positive change in their communities. That is why it is sometimes referred to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution because it is the next evolutionary step in human and computer interaction.
The level of social media participation may differ among users. A "casual" user may only use the services for entertainment, while an "institutional" user may use social media as part of a public relations, marketing, or corporate communications strategy. It is important to note that people do not have to use social media in order to be part of the "social revolution" and can use media for professional or personal purposes. Some people (e.g., students) may use social media for personal pleasure. Social media is part of the information world and it can be viewed as part of everyday life. That is why it is called “everyday media." Such media is needed for the survival of a business, communication, and society. Some of the more popular social media services are Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Vine, Pinterest, and Snapchat. Facebook is the most widely used social network, with 1.37 billion active users in 2013. Twitter is the second-most popular social network (with 328 million active users in 2013) and LinkedIn is third (with 200 million active users in 2013).
Social media is fundamentally about connecting users across the globe and making it easier to share content and information. Social media is the delivery mechanism, while the content, such as news, information, and blog posts, is often the real content. A key feature of social media is that it connects people while being primarily visual. Generally speaking, social media allows people to express themselves in a number of different ways, including by sharing, liking, commenting, linking, and blogging. This can include content that is visual, such as photography, pictures, and videos. Through technology, social media also allows people to learn from each other. For example, Twitter has a partnership with the Poynter Institute to run “#PressReady” programs to help journalists develop media literacy skills. These programs will teach reporters how to use Twitter, how to use various Tweetdeck modules, and how to identify false information.
Social media is a new way of interacting, interacting together and interacting socially. Uglek is a new way to do this. Please enjoy Uglek socially, post and comment here, and message your friends. Thanks for gaining a better understanding of social media here.

What is git?
Git is a free and open-source distributed version control system designed to deal with everything from small to very giant initiatives with pace and efficiency. Version management systems hold these revisions straight, storing the modifications in a central repository. This permits builders to simply collaborate, as they will download a brand new model of the software, make modifications, and add content to the newest revision.
A fork is a repository that has been copied from one member's account to a different member's account. Forks and branches enable a developer to make modifications without affecting the unique code.
Git is the preferred model management system of most developers since it has multiple advantages over the other systems obtainable. It stores file adjustments more efficiently and ensures file integrity better. If you're looking for details on git commands, the Git Basics page has an intensive clarification on how Git works. Basic commands are "git clone <URL>" to clone a repository, "git add --all" to add files, "git commit -m "<message>" to stage changes, and "git push -u origin" to push changes to the remote repository.
GitHub is a for-profit company that gives a cloud-based Git repository hosting service. I use GitHub to store the code for this website, and I host my other website on GitHub Pages. Essentially, it makes it so much simpler for people and groups to use Git for version management and collaboration. GitHub is a useful place to backup, edit, and even serve content.
If the developer wants to share the modifications, she can ship a pull request to the proprietor of the original repository. If, after reviewing the modifications, if the original proprietor wishes to pull the modifications into the repository, she will settle for the modifications and merge them with the original repository. Commits are, by default, all retained and interleaved onto the grasp project, or can be combined into a less complicated merge via commit squashing. GitHub facilitates social coding by providing a web interface to the Git code repository and administration instruments for collaboration. GitHub can be thought of as a serious social networking site for software builders. Members can observe each other, see each other's work, obtain updates for specific code and talk publicly or privately. GitHub is a Git repository internet hosting service, but it adds a lot of its personal options.
Tom Preston-Werner presented the then-new Gist feature at a punk rock Ruby conference in 2008. Gist builds on the normal easy idea of a Pastebin by including model management for code snippets, easy forking, and TLS encryption for private pastes. Because every "gist" has its own Git repository, several code snippets could be contained in a single paste and they are often pushed and pulled utilizing Git. Further, forked code can be pushed again to the unique creator in the form of a patch, so Gists can become more like mini-projects. You’ve forked a repository, made an excellent revision to the project, and want it to be acknowledged by the unique developers—possibly even included in the official project/repository. The authors of the original repository can see your work, after which choose whether or not or to not accept it into the official project. Whenever you have a problem, submit a pull request, GitHub offers a perfect medium for you and the primary project’s maintainer to communicate.
The developer can then safely make adjustments to that part of the code without affecting the remainder of the project. Instead, model control lets developers safely work through branching and merging. If a core developer wanted to work on one particular part of the WordPress codebase, it wouldn’t be safe or efficient to have them immediately edit the “official” supply code. Because GitHub is so intuitive to use and its model-control tools are so helpful for collaboration, nonprogrammers have additionally begun to make use of GitHub to work on doc-primarily based and multimedia tasks. And earlier this 12 months Atlassian launched Stash, a product that enables you to host non-public, on-premise Git repositories with BitBucket/GitHub-type collaboration options. The firm additionally sells developer collaboration instruments just like the bug tracker Jira and the wiki Confluence.
While Git is a command-line software, GitHub supplies a Web-primarily based graphical interface. It additionally offers access management and several other collaboration options, corresponding to wikis and fundamental task administration tools for each project. Some of Git’s predecessors have a central “repository” of all the information associated with a project. When a developer makes changes, these adjustments are made directly to the central repository. With distributed version management techniques like Git, if you want to make a change to a project you copy the whole repository to your personal system. You make your changes in your native copy, then you definitely “verify” the modifications to the central server. This encourages the sharing of more granular modifications since you don’t have to connect to the server each time you make a change.
GitHub’s issue monitoring characteristic might eventually compete with other similar software companies for some initiatives. These three options – fork, pull request, and merge – are what make GitHub so highly effective. Before services like GitHub, the maintainer of a repository would then have to gauge each patch, possibly dispatched by a stranger, and determine whether to merge the changes. Now, this process is streamlined through Git and GitHub interface.
GitHub's Terms of Service do not require public software projects hosted on GitHub to satisfy the Open Source Definition. The phrases of service state, "By setting your repositories to be seen publicly, you agree to permit others to view and fork your repositories." "Forking" is whenever you create a brand new project-primarily based on one other project that already exists. This is an incredible function that vastly encourages the additional growth of applications and other projects.
Specifically, Git is a distributed version control system, which means that the entire codebase and historical past of each repository are on the developer’s PC, which allows for simple version control and leads to a better developer experience.

A message from our sponsors
I made a video focusing on what's great about Uglek
I made about Uglek showing off some of the UI. Hopefully, you'll enjoy it and it will encourage you to get engaged here and post some of your own content. I've been making a lot of content like this, recordings of apps I created, and it's a good way to show off my work and get more viewership. The last videos I posted are kind of buried under a lot of posts now but if you go far enough back you will see them.
Do you have any other ideas for what I should post about? I'm going to write more articles (I am trying to get up to 75 500+ word posts), and I'm going to post more photos and hopefully video too. I want to find a coding project to write about here too, I might do multicolored fractals or something cool like that. I'm also going to focus on some of my music, and post more about it when my album is released. I'll post screenshots of my DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) in the process of making music and the like.
In the past day or so I've made a couple of changes and fixes to Uglek, including changes to the messaging system, empty topic page, adding a logo to the navbar, and more. Additionally, photos, videos, and audio are all allowed sitewide now including in messages and comments. The site is indexed too, you can search for the content you are looking for. Also, I've been buttoning things (turning things into buttons), like the reply button in messages and the edit profile button. I added a refresh button for messages too. I added better timestamps too, so now you can more easily see who posted when in UTC. On top of this, I've far improved mobile useability by making the text wrap around the profile image on mobile for a better layout. I pretty much rewrote the way posts, messages and comments are displayed, so now they look much better and are much more readable on mobile.
Please share this video with your friends, and comment on what you think of Uglek.com! It's nice to see people are using the site, about 35 users are registered. Hopefully, I can get that number up and start making some money from the site when I have enough content. This site seems to be doing better than my other website, intersexmusic, which is probably because it's a bit more modern looking and easier to navigate, and also has more content. I'll update you with another post about my Google Analytics stats and why I think this site is a better model than the other one. Enjoy the video below, and please enjoy exploring the site! I'll keep you updated here.

I made another video showing the new features and icons added to Uglek
This one is a bit more upbeat and fast-paced, and features my new song, "Girl But Like a Boy" by Jasper Camber. Listen to the full song when it's released at https://ditto.fm/girl-but-like...

I updated the timestamps on everything so they are easier to read. I want to make the site as easy as possible to use, and good looking, so I can attract users here and get them to share content with the community. I want this to be a place where more people than just me share articles, pictures, videos, audio and thoughts. I know the server isn't the fastest, it could be better, but I think it's enough to get me started and it only costs $5 per month to have it up and running. It will cost me more though, once I have more users to serve all of this content too. I'm hoping with the compression and reformatting I'm using, the sight won't be too data intensive (it shouldn't take too long to load, or use too much mobile data). For now I'm mostly posting text and images here.
I want to make some sort of a video of the site, especially when I get more content on here, and showcase the features of the site as well as some of the best content. I've been writing a lot recently and this site is really taking my writing to the next level because it allows me to easily post my writing from anywhere I want and edit it. It's also a good way to share photos with you.
I need about 20 more posts before I can get this site monetized with Google AdSense. I'm going to look into ways to get users engaged on the site once I have AdSense implemented, because then I can monetize page views on the site and hopefully start to see a big of a profit from it. I'm also going to try to post SEO ready content here to grow the user base organically and rank pages on Google.
There's a lot to making a site like this. It's been an interesting journey so far, and this time it's been going a lot better. I still have to remove a few users and posts, but it's much more manageable than last time so I'm not really worried about it.
Hopefully my current backlink profile, the sites linking into my site, doesn't prevent my site from ranking well. The content on here is much better than it's ever been, so I feel like at least some of the pages here should rank. I know it takes some time and lots of good content to rank though, so for now I'm focusing on creating high quality content.
I'm also making money from my music, and investing back in that. So far I haven't been paid from Ditto Music for this month yet, but I'm expecting to be paid within the next week or so and my payment information is all ready. It's really exciting to be on board for such an awesome journey and get to have this experience of selling my art and work on the internet. Thanks for following my journey here.

Social Media Websites and Social Media Analytics
Social media is a very powerful interactive digital mediated technology that facilitates the generation or sharing/exchange of information, concepts, opinions, career objectives, and various forms of social expression through virtual networks and communities. The first popular social media platform was Friendster. On this site, individuals can create their profiles for free, search for friends, send and receive messages, post photos, and engage in various conversations. This community had attracted many users who found it a great tool to get to know different people from all around the world and also as a way to make new friends. But then, it did not last long; Friendster gradually became a niche product and now, Facebook has emerged as a far more powerful social media platform with millions of users.
As social media use is increasing, the marketing strategies it employs are also adapting to this change. A lot of companies have their own social networking departments now. It is a wise choice to tap into this sector. The social media market is highly competitive, with Facebook far outshining all other competitors. To ensure success, it is essential to have a social media plan that is customized to meet the goals and objectives of your company.
YouTube is one of the largest social media networks, which has millions of active users. Most internet users visit YouTube to watch tutorials, music videos, movies, and television programs. Since almost everybody is using the internet these days, YouTube is a great platform for business to advertise their brand and reach out to their target audience. Businesses can create their own YouTube channels and interact with their target audience. These businesses can also upload videos related to their products, services, brand development, and events.
Twitter is another giant among the social networks, with more than 400 million users and growing daily. Unlike YouTube, it is better to have a channel on Twitter that is more conversational and interactive, rather than one that is purely promotional. A great way to effectively advertise on Twitter is to have a Twitter contest or promote a product through promotion and advertising on Twitter contests. Having a contest on Twitter promotes two-way communications between the advertiser and the customer, which are the general social media best practices. It also encourages the customer to engage and participate on Twitter.
One of the most popular social media networks, LinkedIn is used by both corporate professionals and freelancers alike. Users can share their professional experiences and connect with other business professionals around the world. Many people hire freelancers nowadays to get an edge in their business. But even if you do not hire someone, you can still use LinkedIn to build connections and form new partnerships. Most successful businesses have had connections through LinkedIn.
The use of social media platforms continues to grow at a rapid pace, as more individuals rely on mobile devices such as smartphones to access the internet. With the increase of smartphones in the market, web-based social media websites and social media analytics are no longer an optional activity for businesses. Rather, they have become a necessity for businesses that want to engage consumers on a more personal level. By offering a more interactive platform through social media, businesses can make their customers feel more connected and help them take part in more personalized interactions with them.
