This is a life lesson you'll undoubtedly encounter in your life as well. There are endless opportunities for you to screw up when it comes to personal finance, and the key is to really just waste as little money as possible.
This past summer I set up a little 6-dollar-a-month Ditigal Ocean linux server to run crons jobs for different coding projects like my Plug-N-Play Twitter Engager and some stock analyzer scripts. It was a pretty barebones server instance so it took a bit of work to get into production-ready state. I've tried to compile the steps here so others (and future me) can reference it for a quicker setup. ?
Some people despise developing with unit tests, but I prefer to use them and leverage them to the allow me to quickly push new code and be more confident that it works! I love doing TDD (test-driven development) which inherently involves continuously re-running the tests, and regardless of what language you are coding in, being able to run your tests in "watch mode" makes TDD faster and easier than without it!

Not only have I been trying to get some in with Java itself, but other languages like Clojure and CFML depend on have some version of Java installed on your system, either just the runtime environment (JRE) or the whole development kit (JDK). In this post I'll talk about Jabba, my new favorite cli tool for installing and switching Java versions!
