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.
The Creator Conundrum
This week, I'm talking about Creator Mode and what it's going to do to LinkedIn and my own journey learning to accept the inevitable. No nerdy stuff, just a bit of excitement over the feature now being available to everyone.
The Canine Nourishment
Don't worry, this is not going to be an article about Mojo, the coding dog...or his food. It's more about making sure you understand your product, before you start making changes.
The Geekier Edition
What does Teen Titans have to do with this week's edition..we'll you'll have to read it to find out. It's definitely a geekier edition than last week. I blame the lack of internet access.
The Outdoor Development
This week, I'm taking some previously scheduled Designated Time off, so Mojo...the coding dog and I are off to the north Georgia mountains in our RV to practice some debugging, pair coding and attempt to establish a performance budget. Having done all that, we look for some help through the local Stack Overflow grapevine while learning once again that it pays to read the docs. Also, we do a bit of camping.
The Relentless Pursuit
Feeling better, I go over how my failure at photography is a perfect example of how I approach...well everything. I have a new video and I talk about the ways I'm editing, recording and writing differently these days.
The Course Hustle
This week, still recuperating, I walk you in detail through what it took to put together my latest Bootstrap 5 Essential Training course. I talk about adding a 15% challenge of something new in every project...which sometimes balloons to like 40%, but once you're committed, you can't stop...won't stop.
