On my project, I’ve spent the last week assigned to “error recovery” in the application – so far I’ve made dashboards for remote logging, but at first, I struggled with the second part of that statement: recovery. How do I recover from something I haven’t seen? I’d be curious to see what other people’s strategy […]
I’ll admit. I’ve been stressed at work. I think the spring/yearly goal-setting/”OMG ROADMAP” brouhaha got to me. I’m a people person, and I get wrapped up in what other people are dealing with, sometimes to my own detriment. So last week when I was “cannot even” about dealing with a race condition on making sure […]
In one of my last projects at AxisPhilly*, I was working with Julia Bergman on transparency and looking at open records requests. The open records request website is a classic case of government website. Well intentioned, but horribly formed data. There’s no clean url to snatch things up, so you can’t directly link to any […]
Here are the slides from today’s presentation at Wharton Web Conf 2013. Selecting a Web Framework from pamselle I’m scheduling this to post with the session, and I’ll write an afterburn tomorrow on the conference, but I can already say that I’m impressed by the quality of the sessions here, even before lunch!
If you’d like to come to a fun workshop on choosing a web framework this Tuesday in Philadelphia, PA, it’s not too late to grab tickets! http://beacon.wharton.upenn.edu/webconf/ Last week, I asked if you’d share some experiences with making technical decisions. Here are a couple of my favorite responses. The customer has to be right One […]
I’m speaking soon at Wharton Web Conf and as I prepare, I’d love to get more personal experiences on how technical decisions are made, specifically about choosing frameworks. Here’s a little questionnaire below, but if you have more to say, please email me! If the form isn’t playing nicely, here’s the direct link. Loading…
DevOps is quite the field today. You’ve got Vagrant (and recently released Packer), Chef, Puppet, Jenkins, and more buzzing around … and if you’re a developer who didn’t have to provision their own machines from the get-go, chances are a lot of it looks like jibberish (at least, that’s the case for me). Here’s a […]
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about Julython, and it’s not too late to join in the fun. What is Julython? It’s a totally silly competition/motivator to work on your Python projects in July. PyStar Philly/PhillyPUG have used it as an excuse to host weekly project nights, teaching people about some common open source tools […]
