Alert dialog for Xamarin Android

So it occurred to me this weekend that I have been working on a project these past couple months but haven't posted any videos. Partially, this is a private project so I won't publish the code at all. The more pressing reason is I'm really learning myself as I go so it really isn't pretty.

That being said, I considered posting some code to some of my biggest road blocks but felt that might slow down my progress. I've begun helping a friend who is new to coding and realized that it is beneficial to myself to write up and be able to share/teach those coming behind me.

I will be using the label android snippets to keep my notes in regards to this Xamarin Android application. I'll add a shortcut link in the blog soon. Here's the most recent headache I had.

I will look into possibly creating a class out of some of these snippets for myself.

Alert dialog for Xamarin Android:

       AlertDialog.Builder alert = new AlertDialog.Builder(this);
            alert.SetTitle("Log out");
            alert.SetMessage("Are you sure?");
            alert.SetPositiveButton("Yes", (senderAlert, args) =>
              // actions for a yes click
              // example here begins new activity
            alert.SetNegativeButton("No", (senderAlert, args) =>
              // action for no click
            Dialog dialog = alert.Create();

Earlier this year I began playing with an open source instagram bot, InstaPy, after hearing the creator talk about web automation with selenium. I was very impressed and frankly amazed with what was possible with selenium and wanted to see how I could incorporate it in both my personal projects and professional career.

Since 2010, I had posted more images on IG than Flickr, 8,200+ with a good chunk of them "throw away" images. I already backed up my photos so now came the challenge to clean/delete my feed. Spring cleaning, pruning the hedges, whatever you want to call it, IG doesn't make it easy.

Enter Insta_Delete (no relation to the app that kept popping up in my google searches).

I decided to build myself a bot glorified script to first scroll as far back as possible on my feed, then scrape the page for URL's, parse and find the href links, save them to a file, log in with a mobile emulated browser and delete those old posts.

I wrote a script that is working now, …

Data Visualization with Python

Scatter plots with Matplotlib  I'm in the middle of taking a 6 week Data Visualization course at Code Academy so I guess you might call this a midterm project. In this jupyter notebook project, we have use real world space data (celestial star location ) for the Orion constellation and output a 3D scatter plot. This was fun but because it is an intro course, the project didn't even get to labeling the actual star which I thought was bunk. 
At the end of the project, they offer you a link to some star data and challenge you to plot some local stars. So I decided to publish my results that I will end up turning in for the extra credit portion of the project. (code below)
I picked a few stars, starting with some familiar ones, like Sirius, and started plotting it out. It took a while to get the labels on correctly, for some reason, I thought it was going to be easy but it definitely took some searching as the 3D portion of it made finding the examples far more challenging than t…
