TDJ ep.24: I Don’t Do Anything The Easy Way

TDJ

Show Notes

After talking to Jay, I made a huge decision that I am going to talk about on next week’s show. I am betting you can guess what that was. Jay got me so excited about learning and growing as a developer, and not taking any shortcuts to that growth. He energizes me and pushes me to be my best. Glad to have him on the show.

Nick wasn’t with us this week as he was getting over a cold.

Want to apologize for the reverb of my mic in this episode. Trying to figure out how to remove it has been difficult. Bare with us as we figure this whole podcasting stuff out!

Show Notes

Dave was an awesome guest who imparted a lot of wisdom on us code newbies. It’s important to note when listening to this episode that school is good! Just how we go about it, stinks.

Dave’s post at Optimized Programmer kicked off a lot of the questioning.

Eric Elliott is kind of a big deal in the JavaScript world. Nick talked about interview questions during the show and one of my favorite, although quite controversial, articles on JavaScript interview questions was written by Elliott on Medium.

Nick’s Books

I’m a news junkie, so I don’t read too many books. I’ve been pretty caught up following politics and the elections.
I’ve been on-and-off browsing the GOF Design Patterns.

Picks

Nick’s Picks

  • CodeRunner 2 Great app to run random snippets on.
    Also great alternative to terrible Java-based beginner’s IDEs.
  • Tweetbot 4 for iOS (iPad!!!)
  • Macs Fan Control: Had an overheating scare when I installed El Cap. For some reason my fans stopped working and my CPU almost reached 200 degrees. This app has some fine-grain control that other fan control apps lack and it’s free.
  • Slack: Believe it or not, just tried it a week ago. Love at first type.

Tiffany’s Picks

  • JS Hint I am on the JS bandwagon and so I use this to check for errors.
    My original pick was JS Lint, if you want to check that out.
  • WebStorm IDE
    As I learn more about IDEs I find that I like this one a lot for web work. I still have a ton of tutorials to watch about IDEs, though. Nick: I use this at work.
  • Marvin eBook Reader for iOS
    By far the best app for serious readers. The dev is branching out to other areas and doesn’t update the app as much. It’s an epub only reader.
