After listening to a podcast with George St. Pierre’s trainer, Firas Zahabi, I decided to experiment with a different approach.
I ranked all NBA players based on their fantasy value for the 2017-2018 season.
I made a dashboard of 2017-2018 Pacers stats.
I created an interactive graph to compare the correlation of per-game NBA team statistics to wins in recent seasons.
The Pacers actual wins were 150% of the average of the preseason forecasts I found.
Some time ago, my brother told me he went a day without drinking coffee and was vomiting by the evening. I felt scared and fascinated. I then felt a bit of dread. I knew that eventually I’d talk myself into taking a day off of coffee, too.
GitLab Pages offers a lot of features for free that GitHub doesn't offer at all.
I recently converted an Angular application from version 2.x to 5.x, bumping ngrx along with it up to 4.x. The process was surprisingly painless, except, ironically, for the production build process, as one of the reasons I wanted to upgrade was to convert to the Angular CLI.
This is a list of every book I read in 2017.
I’ve used Angular (v.2+) fairly extensively over the last year and a half. I have some misgivings about the framework, but I really like that their team embraced observables. Any time I hit a point in Angular where I can just program with the RxJS library, it feels like a “moment of clarity.”
I need to refactor some code that makes use of socket.io. This code was initially written by someone else. To better understand it, I decided to go through the Get Started page on socket.io’s website, which involved creating a basic chat application. I’m kind of amazed by how easy it was.
I first heard of Scott McClanahan several years ago when someone posted a book trailer he made on a blog I followed.
Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging is a book written by Sebastian Junger. Junger is a war journalist, perhaps most famous for his documentary, Restrepo, of which he and fellow journalist Tim Hetherington embedded themselves with a US Army unit in Afghanistan to film.
On the 974th episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Megan Phelps-Roper appeared as a guest. Megan is a former member of the Westboro Baptist Church (the church, among other notable things, owns the domain “godhatesfags.com” and has a 1.4 star rating on Google reviews).
I just received my first shipment from a Tinker Coffee subscription. They sent 4 light roasted, single-origin bags, one from each of Guatemala, Columbia, Malawi, and Ethiopia.
webpack seems to have a reputation for being prohibitively complex. Maybe this was true for version 1.x. Maybe this is still true for enterprise or large applications. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that setting up webpack 2 on a simple, personal project was really quite simple.
Approximately one month ago, a Kroger cashier complemented me on my choice of Honeycrisp apples.
Pricing Design by Dan Mall is an A Book Apart book about pricing design projects as an outside designer (or developer or, really, any type of consulting or service provider — but specifically as a web designer).
I first heard Jocko Willink on the Tim Ferriss Show.
If you’ve heard someone describe RxJS, they’ve likely started by saying it was “powerful” and “revolutionary.” While this is true, you don’t need to be a 33rd degree functional reactive programmer to use RxJS.
