Hitting the wall

I hate the point in coding where your changes transition from major features to tidying up the existing code. It’s hard to get motivation to keep going at that point if you haven’t released yet and aren’t getting constant feedback … Continue reading

Designer in a bottle

I code in PHP, with Smarty as my template engine. Separating the two allows me to just focus on the PHP while deluding myself into believing the look will just magically work itself out. I wish good designers came in … Continue reading

How do I learn best practices as a solo-coder?

I’m a decent coder, and have been coding for a long time. It’s never been my primary job though. When I DID code as a job, it was part of being well rounded. In those times I always thought of … Continue reading

A Resolution
