Maintaining Skill Momentum

Whatever profession you are a part of it requires some set of skills in order to accomplish.  The skill is useful, or at least someone thinks it's valuable enough to pay you to perform it. At the beginning of your career you are learning many new things every day.  Your new job/project constantly pushes the boundaries of your experience.  As time progresses and you become able to perform your job with less assistance from mentors and co-workers.

Be "social" but also show your users you care about their privacy

Recent events like the leaking of PRISM have reinvigorated the concerns of many for their privacy online.  This is a broad subject, and I am by no means a security expert, but I would to talk about an easy way to give a little control back to your users.It's virtually impossible these days to visit a web page without seeing several social media "share" buttons/widgets.  Making it ridiculously easy for your users to send your page to their favourite social twitbookfacegramsnapspace is an…See More

You don't have to be at the same desk (or even the same continent) to pair program with someone

In case you are not super familiar with pair programming here are the core essentials of how it works.  Two programmers sit in front of the computer they are working on and slide the keyboard/mouse back and forth. The person with the controls is called the driver the other is navigator or observer.  To those that have never done it before it can sound kind of stupid but when it's done right it can actually be one of the most intense, focused and rewarding activities a programmer can do.  Pair…See More
