The Start of a New Chapter.

Sep 21, 2015.

Today is my first day as a full-time developer. I’ve been in full-time ministry for the last 14 years, the last nine of which were in student ministry. And, while it had it’s ups and downs, I’ve loved it. I still do. And I am going to miss it terribly.

PlainTasks Refreshing.

May 11, 2015.

A few days ago I wrote about how Listacular is my go-to list making app and using PlainTasks in my workflow. If you haven’t already, read up on those. Otherwise this is complete jibberish.

PlainTasks/Listacular Connection.

May 9, 2015.

A few days ago I wrote about how Listacular is my go-to list making app and using PlainTasks in my workflow. If you haven’t already, read up on those. Otherwise this is complete jibberish.

PlainTasks.

May 8, 2015.

Yesterday I wrote about how Listacular is my go-to list making app. Listacular doesn’t have a platform for desktop or web or plans to make either which was almost a deal-breaker for me. But, because it’s just plain text files, you can use your favorite text editor to edit your lists on any device.

Listacular.

May 7, 2015.

Confession: I am a todo list junky.

There, I’ve said it.

I won’t go into the list of apps that I’ve used, or pros and cons because everybody is different. I will say that if it is free then I have probably tried it. But if I am straight-up honest, the one I have been digging for a while is an app called Listacular for iOS.

May 6, 2015.

In all of my adventures yesterday in reworking the permalinks I ran into some caching issues. It took me a while to figure out that it was a caching issue. Anyway, I came across this article which tells how to flush the WP rewrite rules.

Permalinking Muliple Storefronts in WooCommerce.

May 5, 2015.

I ran into an issue when I was modifying permalinks in Wordpress today. Specifically, I was trying to achieve the effect of creating multiple storefronts on a Wordpress Woocommerce site using product categories. In order to do that, ideally the urls would look differently than out of the box Wordpress and Woocommerce.

Top 3 Kramdown extras.

May 2, 2015.

Markdown is awesome and definitely one of the main reasons why I wanted to start blogging in Jekyll (yes, I know you can do Markdown in other platforms, but this is a little more literal which is why I think I like it).

That said, I’m exploring other extra markdown features that I can do on my site, so I decided to list a few of my favorites.

May 1, 2015.

As I was checking my twitter feed last night, I saw that Microsoft surprised coders with it’s new Visual Studio Code, successor to it’s long-standing, full featured code editor.

Atom Shell is now Electron.

Apr 30, 2015.

Lately I have been diving into Atom Shell for some apps that Dave and I are writing. We’re super excited to share them with you later this year.

Last week as I was working on one of these apps I was having some issues and googled the error to see what I could find. My search results all fit my description, but linked to some ‘electron’ instead of ‘atom-shell’. Weird. And then I saw the latest commit was only a few hours before. Ahah! Atom Shell had officially changed it’s name (about time in my opinion!)

Art is sneaky.

Apr 27, 2015.

While the front door of the intellect is slammed shut, art sneaks through the backdoor of the imagination.

Keep learning.

Apr 17, 2015.

If you’re not learning something every day and you’re probably forgetting something that you use to know.
– Ben Lesh, on the Developer Tea Podcast

I love this idea. I tell my students all the time that they should learn something new everyday. It’s the montra that I live my life by! But I had never thought of the inverse.

Creating a Jekyll Workflow Part 1.

Apr 16, 2015.

As a designer (aka programming noob), I want to create a workflow that simplifies some of the things that writing in Jekyll requires. I don’t write in vim, I still have a conceptually hard time with git, and terminal still freaks me out. I wanted a workflow were I get the benefits of Jekyll, but with a designer mentality.
