This Week in Coding: #017

Soooo I’ve been slowly chipping away at this project and I’m proud to announce I have a working version I think I can re-purpose for another project (the project this whole thing started for). I gotta admit, at some point I started wondering why I was bothering with this whole thing, mostly because I used …

This Week in Coding: #014

This week I spent mostly recovering for a mysterious bug that knocked me out, but I did find time to catch up on reading and complete some laptop configuration stuff. I’m slowly returning to my JavaScript refresher activities. I’ve actually managed to sort through some of my endless FireFox bookmarks to filter out some of …

This Week in Coding: #013

I’m actually on PTO and this post is being typed from in the beautiful St. Croix… I may not come back! But I did find time to catch up on some of my tech reading. I have so many things bookmarked and saved away and honestly I’m sure I won’t get to a lot of …

This Week in Coding: #012

For the first time in years I took almost 2 weeks off from my day job. It felt so short but it was long enough to completely ruin my daily routines: my coding practices, writing plans, and sleep schedule. I’m slowly getting back to that routine. So what I thought would be a 2-week break …

This Week in Coding: #007

Confession: I’m a recovering perfectionist. I try to get everything just right the first time and that hold me back a lot. For example, I’ve worked on my WordPress boilerplate for the last few weeks and yes it’s a boilerplate that I should use for other projects but having not completed it is sort of …

This Week in Coding: #005 (sort of)

First of all, where the hell have I been??? I started writing this post on May 5, 2016 … what had happened??? It’s been over a month – shame shame shame. Seriously – life happens and you get distracted and getting back on track is hard. I didn’t fall off completely but I stopped documenting …

This Week in Coding: #001

This week was very lowkey as far as activity. I plan to actually have assignment-based goals for next week as I kind of fell off for a bit due to a number of personal things I needed to complete. Either way, below is a list of the what I completed this week. I attended a …
