Day 1 of #100DaysOfCode

No Comments

Today I started with the #100DaysOfCode challenge. The reason for starting the challenge is to force myself to code everyday and getting into the habit of coding.

The 1st project I started is to access my CCTV RTSP stream from Linux, using a Python program, since the system only supports Windows and an Android App that feeds the video to a cloud service which I am not fond of.

It took some time to figure out the correct RTSP URI format but I managed to get it working and using the RTSP library from PyPi I am now able to view a stream.

You can find my GitHub repo here. There’s still a lot of work and puzzle solving ahead but I feel confident that this is doable. Below is a gif of the RSTP stream in action. The full video is on my Youtube channel.

2018 was a good year

I passed all but one of my Unisa exams last year and I’m feeling positive with continuing to study for my degree this year.

This semester I registered for Introduction to Programming (C++) which I unfortunately failed last semester as well as Visual Programming I, Maths and Mining (Physics, Chemistry) as part of my extended program. Now I have to wait for Unisa to approve the registration before I can kick off this year’s studying.

I also started game development using C# and Unity with a colleague to make a few small games with the end goal being a competitive FPS.
