The Learning Algorithm
newsletter |
Learning is second nature to most, but how does a professional learner approach it? In this article, I talk about my experience as a lifelong learner and some of the research that might help you establish your own approach.
The Relentless Pace
newsletter |
A big part of my job is to try to stay on top of new technologies for web developers. This year after 16 episodes of the Toolbox I have to admit...I had no idea how deep the rabbit hole was. Here's a few things I learned, and more importantly what you should try to learn in 2022.
The Distinctive Difference
newsletter |
There's a discussion that goes around and around in developer circles. No, it's not the 'gif' versus 'jif' argument or whether tabs are better than spaces. It's surprisingly, the definition of what the word framework means.
The New Lingo
newsletter |
When I was a boy, my family moved about every three years to a new country. Although every one spoke spanish, the language wasn't the same. There are new words to learn, old words with new meaning and things you can say in one country that shouldn't be said in another. It's the same way with web development.
The Nuclear Fusion
newsletter |
What does Nuclear Fusion have to do with JavaScript, the big Meta and recording live action videos? I'm not sure, but I think I figured something out this week as I worked through all the changes around me. I don't think I'm going to be in the Meta Universe, but the change is the weird part I enjoy.
The Road Again
newsletter |
I decide to take a break and go somewhere in my RV with the worst possible internet connection. Plus, how to be a tech teacher, YouTube makes moves, the gig economy and the end of coding as we know it.
The There Yet
newsletter |
In this edition, I reminisce about the time I ran into someone that looked just like my friend Morten...but with a Mohak, then ran into Morten. Plus what's new in the GitHub Universe conference, the Tailwind CSS 3.0 Alpha and a brand new episode of the Toolbox.
The Home Work
newsletter |
Last week, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced where their policy for work is going three days in the office/four weeks working from home a year. The change in the structure of work is going to be one of the biggest shifts on how companies will operate in the future. Here's what I think.
The Lame Outage
newsletter |
Facebook went down this week and I almost didn't notice, but I did come back to streaming with a new Toolbox Episode, some gems in the Toolbox Shorts and some other amazing tidbits.
The Yes More
newsletter |
This week, I remember another famous and infamous Panamenian who managed to do something great once he was unable to quit. I've been gone for a few weeks, so I'm slowly gearing back up to speed, so find out about my two upcoming toolbox episodes and some of my new courses.
