Tooling up for writing a book in 2018

Tue, 28 Nov 2017 01:50:26 +0000

While I’ve already started writing “VS Code Mac”, I kind of look at this time of year as the prep time for that new shiny year to come. So here’s my thinking on how to write a book-length project as of now. Please let me know if you’ve got any better alternatives! Building and Maintaining […]

So why am I writing ‘VS Code Mac’?

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 01:55:28 +0000

A funny thing happened two years ago this weekend: Microsoft released software for developers that did not suck. It wasn’t Microsoft’s way or the highway – it was honest-to-God open source software in the form of a screaming fast code editor, integrated with Git out of the box, and now with a huge community of […]

A disturbing item in my morning tech news feed.

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 15:33:44 +0000

It’s one thing to read about something truly awful coming at you. It’s another to see that thing even if what you see is – for now – fiction. Watch this YouTube video created by a Stuart Russell, a well-respected CS professor  at the UC Berkeley and Autonomousweapons.org Then ask yourself if there’s a single bit about […]

Why Developers need WP site hosting with great tech support: Siteground.

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 19:37:34 +0000

One thing you learn pretty quickly with WordPress is that unless you’re a fulltime WP developer you’re going to need someone who is. There are simply too many things that can break – themes that auto-update but auto-fail; plugins that start doing strange things for no apparent reason; hosting issues that keep your clients from […]

Another Wes Bos treat for developers

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 18:36:06 +0000

This week I happened to listen to two episodes back to back to Wes Bos’ new podcast Syntax – confirming a) It’s not just me that has gone back over to the Dark Side with Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code and b) this guy has lots of good content for developers. The two episodes – The […]

Why did Microsoft BizSpark Decline my Startup?

Thu, 25 May 2017 23:48:40 +0000

The one question founders have asked me in my {volunteer} role successfully sponsoring 350+ startups into Microsoft BizSpark is why Microsoft declined their startup. Sometimes the applicant will wait weeks only to get declined; sometimes it takes mere minutes. Nearly always the founder/applicants are shocked, hurt, frustrated: Can’t Microsoft see what a great startup we are? Don’t […]

Great Post! And that’s the problem.

Tue, 16 May 2017 19:44:49 +0000

This morning I saw this excellent post by InVision re 30 good Sketch plugins – my goto tool now for high fidelity wireframes. Well written, nice screenshots, nicely done. And that’s the problem, and I bet if you are a developer, you have the same problem. 30 new things to learn at once makes my head […]

Startup Mistake #1: the anonymous startup.

Wed, 10 May 2017 15:36:19 +0000

If you expect people to sign up and perhaps pay for your startup, you have no chance in hell if you don’t explain in credible detail who you are. Here’s an example (as of Wednesday; May 10, 2017) – everydaycheck.com, a habit-building saas going for $12/year. Looks awesome, and attractive. Chance of me or normal […]

Building your Digital Career Plan

Fri, 05 May 2017 19:53:59 +0000

So welcome to your new, fully-digitalized career! Whatever your current occupation, you can expect to be hopping jobs every three years (or less). When you go after your next job, you’re more likely to be screened by software before you get to talk to a person. If a recruiter is in the mix, you can […]
