Killing This Code– LIKE A BOSS


(First, let me apologize for the glitch in these images on this page– theme creator knows about the glitch (going on two months) and hasn\’t found a way to fix it. They float left no matter what I do, and all the custom CSS I\’ve found to fix it doesn\’t do anything. I am looking for a temporary theme like this but it is hard to find what I am looking for).


Working at Free Code Camp is like having your own little cheerleading team as you string out lines of code, hunched over your MacBook Pro, the glare of the computer screen a reminder that you have an end goal and that goal is to make your living as a developer, staring at a screen and creating awesome things. (As far as the glare, get f.lux. Seriously. Your eyes will thank you).

The encouragement at the end of each challenge addicting. I find myself coding there more and more. Going through the CS101 by Standford and killing it. They use a modified version of Javascript which looks something like this:

image = new SimpleImage(“flowers.jpg”);

for (pixel: image) {
// your code here



Sort of kinda like JS but not quite. Simpler for learning concepts.

I am almost done with the CS101 track on Standford/Free Code Camp sites and am looking to dive into the Javascript track on Free Code Camp.

Take a look at how I’m killing it. Here is my Trello board/checklist for this month. I can probably start on July’s challenges.


Kanban and My Love of Trello for Project Management


If you’re not using Kanban and Lean project management for your productivity as a developer, why?

I use OmniFocus for linear tasks now– I will not ditch it– I spent $100 on all the apps across Apple platforms and $100 is a lot of cash to be wasting. I feel more productive using Trello and Kanban. I am more visual and moving cards from one list to the next is awesome.

For information on Kanban check out this link.

Trello is free but upgrading to Gold for a few extra features won’t set you back to much. Here is a screencast I did on it.
