The Broadcast Disaster
I learned some great lessons about streaming while working for a company with a nightly live news show. Never before or since have I experienced the level of stress they've mastered and I'll never forget the lessons it taught me about the importance of staying cool under pressure.
The Speedy Slowness
Sometimes, the best way to get faster at something is to slow down and take the time to develop a process that will eventually pay off. I had a chance to rethink how I created a new series so it could be handled by a larger team of people. They say that slow is smooth and smooth is fast. Here's how I did it.
The Changing History
Time Travel is a dangerous concept...if you can change the past. This week, I ask the question...what would you be willing to give up to change the past? Plus, I've got a new GitHub course and a new some Tailwind related shorts.
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.
