April Challenge: Day 8 round up(Challenge 1: Failed)

A

Challenge one: failed So it’s safe to say I failed to release the first app on time.  It’s live but it’s not launch ready yet.  I’m going to have Jess run it for a week on her work to come up with some improvements to the workflow and reporting.  If you want to check it out though did This Then is where to find the rough lander which will take you through to the app. ...

April Challenge: Day 6 roundup

A

Woo today was a busy day.  Despite a break to go watch Ready Player One with my wife I got a lot done today.  The application is now fully usable as a time tracker.  It isn’t however useful as a time tracker yet.  What do I mean by that?  While as it currently stands I can add/archive tasks and track how much time is spend on them all.  What I can’t do is see how much time I spent on...

I actually got this one out in the morning.  Woo.  Now with that task complete I’m going to move to just doing them at the end of the day since it’s really difficult to talk about yesterdays activities as though they were today. Livestreaming Oops.  I have been using something called Soundflower to allow me to have my desktop audio(music) and mic working at the same time in OBS and...

April Challenge: Day 1 round up

A

We’ve reached the end of the first day of the April Challenge and I feel like we’re off to a great start. Livestreaming Live streaming went well though I decided 4 hours of it was just too much and cut it down to 2 hours.  It was pretty enjoyable though I coded a lot slower than expected.  After the two hours I had an authentication system in place and a general design for the system...

April Bootstrapping Challenge

A

I spent entirely too much time trying to come up with a catchy sounding name like “March Madness”, “Dry July”, or “Movember” to title this challenge and as you can tell by the title I’ve failed not only myself but all of you who definitely want to talk about this around the water cooler as well.  So the first task of my “April Bootstrapping...

Javascript Upgrade: Arrow functions

J

This is part of my series about upgrading my Javascript skills. Previous: Javascript, I hardly knew ya Javascript Upgrade: Day 1 Javascript Upgrade: let/const Next on my list of topics to learn are arrow functions.  I’ll fully admit to being completely confused by these when I started to get into React stuff.  I’d see them and try to use them but I never took the time to understand...
