  • How to Install Ruby (on Rails) on Mac

    macOS already included Ruby. You can type ruby -v at a Terminal prompt to check Ruby version and see result like:

    ruby 2.3.3p222 (2016-11-21 revision 56859) [universal.x86_64-darwin17]
    

    If you are satisfied with the Ruby version, you can type gem install rails --no-ri --no-rdoc to install Rails.

    However, if you are not satisfied with the Ruby version or if you have multiple apps that run on different Ruby version, I would recommend you use RVM to manage Ruby.

  • Silicon Valley: A Story That Is Unrelated To Technology

    This is an essay that I wrote for my Rhetoric course.

    Silicon Valley

    Silicon Valley is a region in California where many technology companies gather together. When we think about Silicon Valley, we often think about genius people sitting together and programming in mysterious ways. Silicon Valley is also an American comedy series produced by Mike Judge. The TV series is a story about how five young men develop an algorithm that can compress Gigabyte amounts of data into Megabytes. The men then go on to found a startup company in Silicon Valley, and the series focuses on how they maintain and run the business.

  • Sell Your Privacy

    This is an essay that I wrote for my Rhetoric course.

    When you are using free online services, such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon, do you believe it is okay for them to collect your data so that they can “provide information related to you” to you? You might think that it is fine because you like to see news and items that are relevant to you. Well, what if the free services are selling your data to earn money? You might have some concern about this, but in the end, you remember that the services are free, so they have to have some ways to earn money. So you agree again. Now, please think about this: is it okay for your broadband providers to sell your data for money? I don’t know how you feel, but I feel angry. Because I already paid them for the internet services, I do not want them to earn money again from my personal data.

  • Project Review: Admissions Data Search System

    The Main Page

    What This Project Is And Why I Did It

    This is my first complete project. Its purpose is providing admissions data to potential new students.

    I did this project as a competency test when I joined Hongmantang Studio. At the time some third-party websites provided admissions data to help potential new students decide whether they should apply to a university. Those sites tried to collect admissions data from as many schools as possible. Thus, they did not have enough details for each college. Our studio wanted to create a system that could show enough details about the admissions data for our university.
