Created a video to help people get started with HexHoot

A few days ago, I decided to make version release for HexHoot on GitHub, as I think it is important to differentiate something that is more stable and something that is under development. Having versions that people can download seem to be the best move to do the same. Following the same, I shared it with people over LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram. One of the feedbacks I received over private messages was asking me to provide more information on what it exactly is and how to use it. Although all these information are written in the documentation and the website, it appears to be that people like to watch videos explaining the same. Therefore, in the past couple of days, I have been performing screen recording and doing voice overs. Interestingly, during this process, I found a couple of issues with the software, and I fixed those. The following is the video. Please do provide your feedback on this project. It would be lovely if any of you are interested in contributing to the same. Y

Preparing my journey to Switzerland

My master's program in Computational Science at Universit√† della Svizzera italiana is scheduled to start in the third week of September. I have already scheduled my flights and I shall be arriving in Zurich on the 15th. Since my last day at MathWorks is done, the only task that I have left to do is preparing for the journey: packing, getting the papers in order, purchasing the currency, etc.

I have been informed that Switzerland is an expensive country to live in. Since I am planning on living mostly on what I have saved in the past couple of years, I have been looking into estimating the approximate living expenses that I would encounter.

For starters, I have been trying to find the sweet spot between good nutrition, less expensive and easy to cook food. I was informed that there is a Lidl supermarket less than a kilometer from the university and it offers grocery products for a cheap price. I found Lidl Switzerland's website to have an understanding of the price for different items and I find that it is cheaper for a vegetarian to live in Switzerland than a non-vegetarian. Perhaps I should reconsider my dietary habits. I have also been looking into different recipes on YouTube that I could potentially cook at low effort.

I have started packing, and I am trying to see how much masalas and spices I can fit in. I have heard that these could be either expensive or unavailable in Switzerland. Chicken masala, biriyani masala and coriander powder has been procured in huge quantities along with ginger garlic paste, chilly powder and turmeric powder. I also need to pack my clothes. I hope I would be able to find the right amount of quantities that I need to take for each items.
