This month’s Reading List is a bit of a short one. I got sick twice in February, along with it being a short month. I know a lot of people that read a lot when they get sick. I don’t know how they do it. When I’m sick, my brain turns off, and the Netflix app turns on. Continue Reading
The Monthly Reading List is something new that I am starting. At the beginning of each month, I will write about all the books I read in the previous month. This includes all Non-Fiction and Fiction alike. Continue Reading
Type hinting is one of those arguments that every developer eventually get’s pulled into. More often then not, the anti-type hinters will win the argument with their standard go-to argument, “it makes the method less flexible”. Let me explain why type hinting makes your code no less “flexible” then it was before. Continue Reading
For the most part, I love macOS Sierra. It has a few quirks, but I enjoy my experience day-to-day, specially on my new 2016 MacBook Pro. The part that keeps frustrating me, was having to keep entering my passphrase for my public key, every time I tried to use SSH or do a git push/pull.
Thankfully, Rob Allen has put together a nice short guide on fixing SSH key problems on macOS Sierra. If you are a developer, and running macOS Sierra, I highly encourage you to check it out.
For a lot of people, 2016 was a year they were excited to see in the rear-view mirror. For me, it was filled with growth, learning, and new opportunities. I wanted to take some time here, and reflect on what was a very busy year for me, and what I’m looking forward to in 2017. Continue Reading

That is not failure; that is life.
For all of us that work in a Git repo all day long, problems often arise. We constantly have those “Oh, shit” moments, when we need to fix something in Git, and not quite sure how to do it. This incredible one-page summary describes how to recover from some very common Git problems.
The earth is always in a constant state of temperature change. This has been true since long before humans were here, and will continue long after we are gone. The question of the last couple generations has been; Are Humans causing an above average temperature shift?
XKCD, one of my favourite online comics, has done an excellent graphic detailing the comparative shift of temperature in the planet. This graph clearly outlines how the planet has gone through minor temperature fluctuations in years past, but is accelerating exponentially now.
I would like to note that I have NOT verified any of the data that XKCD has used to make their graph, so I can not confirm it’s accuracy. Given the scientific depth that XKCD usually uses to make their comics, I tend to lean on the side of believing their interpretation of the data. Of course, I invite you to verify the data yourself.
