    Make small prototypes to test these implementations out, learn to use git (see: Working with Git and GameMaker Studio 2) sooner rather than later.
  • Git Good | 2021-10-04
    Git installation is pretty straightforward; just head on to the site and install it according to your OS. It has no prerequisites. Make sure that you also have your Git Bash with the bundle. Git Bash is basically a terminal that is a bit personalized for Git. Windows users are recommended to use it over your cmd/powershell. Although the VSCode terminal is also very supportive.

  • Introduction to Nodejs and Express | 2021-10-17
    It's quite easy to create a simple server with Nodejs. As you may already know, you just need the terminal and a text editor. My favorite text editor is Visual Studio Code; but you can use your preferred one. The result is going to be the same. Once we choose our text editor we can create a file and name it app.js. After we create the file we can type the example we see below in our file. Then you will get a result of a route and a console log.

  • What is Dasha AI? | 2021-10-13
    Dasha Studio is a Visual Studio Code extension. It lets you build, train manage and deploy Dasha applications. Dasha apps are human-like voice interfaces for CX, support, sales,notifications, smart IVRs or voice interfaces for web and mobile applications and games.You can also add conversational capabilities to websites, games, mobile apps, voice assistants, smart devices, and more with only a few lines of code, from Visual Studio Code. Since Dasha is an open technology you can write Dasha apps without using Dasha Studio but you will lose out on the syntax highlighting, visual graph editor and debugging tools. All code you write resides on your machine and is your intellectual property. The language you'll be using to write your conversational AI apps is DashaScript which is the native language of the Dasha Cloud Platform.
