  • A Simple “Hard Workout” I Keep Coming Back to

    Some years back I realized I had gotten really out of shape. I think everyone knows that feeling at some point or another. My wife wanted to get our oldest daughter into a beginner dance class at the YMCA and that turned into a family membership. So each week my wife and I would work […]

  • Turn an array of objects into a table

    At work we use a number of javascript files that hold constants we can import to any of our builders or editors. The structure looks something like: So a fairly large array of objects which makes it easy to work with. With this data structure I needed to export a whole bunch of these objects […]

  • A Year with Codeable

    In late February of 2013 I found myself on a website called Codeable. A few minutes later I was emailing my credentials to try and get an invite to the live beta. The idea was simple, but one which I had never heard of before: a freelancing job board connecting developers with clients, but without […]
