This guide demonstrates one way to setup your locally computer for solving exercises on Exercism.io. When working on your solutions to exercism, why not version you code and save it to git just as you would any "real" project you plan to deploy? With Github, you can make a public repo for free that can contain all of your solutions, plus you'll be associating this nice code with your Github profile and be getting those green squares on Github! Excercism projects make excellent code to have on your Github account because every exercise itself is it's own little self-contained, fully unit tested and peer-reviewed bit of clean code that does something correctly! You can take a look at my Exercism-Solutions repo to see how awesome it is to have all of your Exercism solutions there in a Github repo. ?

It's crazy that 12.13.0 is now the latest long term support version of nodejs! At work today we discovered that when we all boot up a new terminal shell and run "node -v" to get the current node version, we would all get a different number! One person was on 12.13, one was on 11.15, one was on 10.something, and one guy was even using v6.4! We had to do something about this madness
This post may seem like a joke at first, but it's actually not. There are a few words that, especially when you work as a software developer, just have some negative connotation associated with them and should be avoided, especially when you are the bearer of bad news... hehe.
