The Collaboration Conundrum
My sisters were masters in the art of collaboration...specially when it came to tormenting their younger brother. Which reminds me of GitHub...a company who's also mastered collaboration. A new Github Code Challenges course and as usual, I share some excellent tools.
The Influenced Mind
This week, I had one of those planning conversations about what I'm supposed to cover next year. It's tough to predict the future as to what technologies are going to make a difference, specially a year ahead, but having to cover a lot of emergent technologies is always rewires and in a way controls the direction of my mind.
The Golden Mean
In this edition, I talk about my favorite greek myth and philosophy and how I incorporate that into processes that help me get things done. I got a new episode of The Toolbox coming soon and I introduce a new section on my site called shorts.
The Unchanging Essence
This week, I talk about the best advice I gave to some students from Yale, realize I'm not that different from who I was in high school, talk about my meeting with the old NAP crew, plus I realize the course I just finished two days ago, needs an update.
The Necessary Change
My world has been changing and I've working hard to keep up with it, so I show you how I learned from the mistakes of IBM...and Interstellar? You can't stop change, but when it comes you can be ready to do what's necessary."
The Unforgettable Ride
Having launched The Toolbox this week, my thoughts go back to my childhood and how teaching myself how to ride a bike taught me everything I needed to know about learning things permanently.
The Quizzical Dream
In this episode, I talk about the joys of quizzing. Also, why I think it's an inffective tool for gauging developer performance and how I came up with the perfect quiz that you have to get 100% in order to pass. Plus, you can watch me struggle through a JS quiz.
The Unpredictable Storm
Hurricane Elsa wasn't the strongest hurricane when it passed through my area, but sometimes the unexpected storms are the best reminders of how to prepare yourself for the future. In this issue, I take a look at how to prepare for the coming storms and two companies that are doing it right. Plus I talk about my next live stream...The Toolbox.
The Auspicious Overlords
Will the AI Overlords take your job away any time soon? I talk about the latest entry from Github that writes code by synthesizing billions of lines of code. Plus, you'll find out what my next two live streams are all about.
The Space Rules
This week, I might just settle that argument of wether spaces or tabs are best in development. I'll even tell you if I prefer single over double quotes. Somehow I end up talking about privacy and make a big announcement about my largest course ever.
