An Update of Qia Web Viewer During the Composing of JH IPA E-book
Software is just one window to unleash the ideas of a larger picture, or call it blueprint. The ideas always need to reside on something seeable, touchable and even playable. This is also the necessity of Qia Web Viewer. However, Qia Web Viewer is still far away from the completion and not yet meant to be released but still can serve the representation of ideas quite well.
A Software Development Note for Qia Web Viewer
By far, the Qia Web Viewer is still not yet stable and by no menas close to finished. Because it is not very much practical to compose a stable summary of the ideas or even philosophies behind during my development of Qia Web Viewer before the application itself gets stable, I think it could be of somewhat meanings if I record some thoughts during the development. Therefore comes there this development note.
There Could Be Better Ways for Starting to Learn Foreign Languages
As a Chinese who grew up in central China, to be sincere, I have been suffering a lot from learning Indo-European languages such as English and German. As a matter of fact, Chinese (Mandarin) is very much an analytic language which lacks inflectional morphology almost entirely, and most words consist of either one- or two-syllable morphemes, especially two due to the very numerous compound words. (source: Wikipedia) And in Chinese, words don't usually change in forms to express different time points or periods (past, now and future), different numbers (singular and plural), different cases (German - Nominative, Akkusativ, Dativ und Genitiv), i.e., words generally don't change.
The Guardian - A Well-Designed News Website
From my perspective, The Guardian has a really well designed website which organizes news information clearly. Therefore, this article would focus on the information organization aspect of The Guardian. (And, personally, I do think The Guardian also has high quality contents considering the selection of words and expression relatively to its competitors.)

Reading Vue Source Code - The First Note
Since long, I have had the idea to implement my own frontend utility library to relieve myself from repeated boring stuffs. However, I know I was still not knowledgeable enough to make a move those times. And now, there have been quite a few frontend libraries which fully implement what I once wannted. Among them, React, Angular and Vue stand out. Personally, I think React and Angular are just too good and powerful to learn and Vue could be one really suitable source for learning since it is in fact at the beginning developed by one developer, Evan You. Yeah, kind of like holding the idea, better to learn something easy at first in oder not to get oneself overwhelmed and discouraged.
