Alright so this is really programming-adjacent, and not fully about programming. That’s fine, I’ll allow it. It is my blog after all. So: since January of 2021 I’ve been doing the vast majority of my writing and programming on an OLKB Preonic. Full disclosure – it originally arrived in September 2020 and I assembled it,Continue reading “OLKB Preonic: Longish Term”
Tl;dr-The browser is capable of handling quite a bit of programming.-It’s easy to collaborate with people and sync across different machines.-Most online options allow you to choose any language you would like. You just got the bug to learn programming and you are wondering where to start (Or maybe you are a seasoned veteran thatContinue reading “The Browser as an IDE!”
For quite a while I didn’t have any programming-related side projects. This was a bit of a problem when I was presented with new opportunities because, invariably, I would be asked about what kind of work I could show off. This was difficult – everything I work on at my day job is proprietary andContinue reading “You Probably Need a Project”
Today Rainfall got a bit of an update – a really, profoundly basic blog. It’s as basic as it is because I built it myself with (at best) a hazy idea about the baseline kinds of functionality I wanted. It was a good lesson, for me, in just what the most basic thing that solvesContinue reading “Rainfall Updates”
The title of this post poses a question that I found strangely difficult to answer. Why would I even care about rainfall in the past, anyway? Well, if you look around the blog a bit, you probably see some photos of my bikes. Strange, for a programming blog, but there they are. The reason IContinue reading “Did It Rain?”
I recently had a need to use objects that had properties I could define or remove at runtime in C#. I’m embarrassed to admit that I actually didn’t know that such a thing existed, because I don’t usually use the language in that capacity. It generally doesn’t make sense to, either, because you lose aContinue reading “Expando Objects!”
Let’s talk about developing your own tools. It’s hard to come up with an introduction to this because it’s such a pervasive thing in programming that it feels like talking about breathing. “Yeah, breathing is fun and important! You should try it yourself!” Well, whatever. Developing your own tools is fun and important! You shouldContinue reading “Byte Tool”
You ever find yourself just wishing you could fire off three, four, maybe five thousand records all at once? Or even more than that? I bet you do. I found myself in this situation recently and usually I rely on Entity Framework to accomplish my data-related needs as I am firmly entrenched in the .NETContinue reading “Bulk Adds and Entity Framework”
If you’ve been developing for any length of time, it’s likely that you’ve run across some variation on the phrase “Code isn’t for machines to run, it’s for humans to read.” Yet, we’re often also caught discussing how code is a mess, difficult to read, hard to maintain, etc… It seems that if it wasContinue reading “Why Code Is Hard To Read”
