Stereotyping and the “keyboards” of tomorrow.(part 1)

2

You know that look you give anyone who is dressed “indecently” (as defined by your standards of whats decent or not) ?..
Yeah that impression you had about that boy that sagged his pants or that girl with the ankle chain and wrist tattoo? Yep that is stereotyping. Stereotyping can be defined as a preconcieved notion especially about a group of people .
I have had a fair share of stereotype comments and gestures obviously because of my hair (aiming for that j cole look).
Statements like “you work with this hair?, you look like a “gboy” (statement obviously made by the NPF), “we nor dey get dada for our family” (made by grandma).

I’m not exempting myself from stereotyping either because i grew up with so many wrong impressions e.g All girls with ankle chains are sluts, all boys with dreadlocks are criminals,all Ibo men have shops, all calabar girls have Phd in the bedroom, Only bad boys wear black polos and black denims same time etc..

Its normal to be influenced by the way society thinks because you grew up in that society , but its totally unacceptable to stick to the way society thinks just because they are the crowd.
In the history of Nigeria we have always had issues of corrupt government officials looting funds but I’ve never seen any of them on dreadlocks.

A girl with a tattoo or ankle chain doesn’t automatically make her a slut..You will be surprised at the level of sluttiness the “sister mary” kind of girls display.

I cant deny the fact that some of these characteristics can be linked with people of questionable morals but its totally wrong to stereotype.
You should get to know people before going all “your lordship” (judging) on them.

Say no to any form of stereotyping today.

Ps: All programmers are awesome (was that stereotyping?)..

I need 48-hour days!!!

Argh, I wish we had longer days because my time management skills suck.
There’s so much to do but my schedule makes their priority amount to nothing.
Earlier this year I had a map, or let me say a list of tasks/side projects I wanted to complete before the year runs out. Now I’m gonna list them below and also how far I have progressed on each one.

1. The Force WordPress theme : Sounds like something from the star wars franchise right?
It actually is. I had this great idea of making a Star wars inspired WordPress theme and giving it out for free on the download section of this blog, and also uploading it on the WordPress.org repository.

Progress : Wire frame on sketch and about 60 lines of html5.

2. The Force brand identity template: You are a genius, figuring I stole the name the franchise too.
This brand identity pack contains an Id card, business card, letter heads, envelope and an awesome (it looked awesome in my thoughts) flyer design. This was to be uploaded on behance, freepik and also on the download section.

Progress : Done with the Id card, the rest are uhmmmm.. Let’s move on

3. Hanxolo.css : Ok this wasn’t made to overthrow bootstrap or flexbox. I started this project because I was trying to curb my use of random names while creating classes and ids.
E.g <div class=”buhari”></div>
And yep I’m guilty of not using proper comments in my stylesheets. So i started using some unique classes like “row”, “gridrow”, “gridrow-2”, “gridrow12” etc.
Row was set at 100% width, gridrow wasn’t at full width and gridrow-2 was 50% of gridrow.
Since I kept repeating this classes over time, I thought “why not create a default stylesheet, get it hosted on a CDN and bam my own css framework would be born”?

Progress: Too lazy to actually put the various styles I’ve already pre written together. Basically Im at 30 percent.

4. Launching with Rails: I picked up ruby sometime this year (Im still a front end dude).
Finished my tutorials, then I got stuck between choosing sinatra or rails. Finally picked rails but still haven’t done anything tangible yet.

My time management skills are horrible, and I dont know if a lot of web developers out there share my fate. Between working on clients projects, meeting up deadlines, debugging in your dreams and still trying to squeeze out the tiniest amount of time so your social life won’t be buried, because its already dead. How does one create enough time for projects like these?
I’ll definitely go for a time management course as soon as I can work that into my schedule.

Ps: Yay I blogged twice In two months 😁
