I said I was going to do a lot of posts but shorter so here it is: raw plants. Raw plants are what yo need. Everything else is just calories to fill the day. Raw plants- a for me preferably low fodmap raw plants: bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, blueberries, green beans, honey melon / canteloupe, cucumber, zuccinni, pumpkin seeds, sprouted rice. That should be your base, and everything else is whatever.
When the spotlight is on you can either curl up into a ball or step out and seize the moment. Don't try to avoid fear. Don't try to subdue your feeling of fear by suppressing it because that will only intensify the feeling, and then you will need to try even harder to squash that fear, leading to more fear... and it becomes a vicious spiral downwards until you reach a point where you are too afraid to do anything that is even slightly uncomfortable which is such a dull and passive way to live.
This is a great little tip for any software developer, regardless of your programming language of choice. It's these subtle things that can raise you up regular programmer to coding superstar. When sending URLs that link to files on github you may want to reference a specific line number or block of code. The people receiving your code snippets will appreciate these nice highlights, and (subconsciously or not) they'll be thinking, "damn, he's good".
I was recently on a chairlift talking to my uncle who is a technology exec at a finance company in New York, and he told me that one way they vet people is by looking at their Stack Overflow score. I've landed on Stack Overflow pages many times in the past, but successfully finding and answering questions takes putting in a decent amount of effort and requires knowledge about the problem domain (sometimes, a lot of knowledge about it!). Well, in an effort to selfishly increase my own fame and unselfishly help other struggling devs I've recently began to really try to look for questions that I can answer and provide a solid answer for. I've learned some tips to make the search faster, weed out the fluff, and make it much easier to find those low-hanging fruits. The tip I'll share here is to strategically search for Stack Overflow questions. Enjoy! :)
Let's face it: a Macbook Pro is the most common machine for web developers right now. What is it about Mac OS that everyone loves? It is the native linux shell you get with terminal, the ability to use xcode for native iOS apps, the ability to test on safari browser, or maybe just the sleek, timeless interface? It's nice to have a powerful Macbook, but it's not nice to pay Apple's full price tag. My '09 Macbook started suddenly turning off on me, and I wanted something a little more powerful. Also, I really wanted to upgrade from the 13" screen to the 15". However, I didn't want to fork over the $2000+ to get my dream machine from the Apple store. Luckily, with some research and a little tweaking I was able to get a very solid machine for just barely over $1000. Here's how...
