There have been many times since my friends Lasha told me about this service that I forgot its name and ending up kicking myself for hours or days until I finally remember the name, Buffer. Yep, this post of going to be short and sweet and really just serve the purpose of reminding me what the heck the name of this thing is when I search "schedule post" on my site. hehe
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. ?
Notebooks are an excellent way to store little python projects because they cleanly mix markdown and runnable code snippet in one file. If you are using python or doing data science work, building your project inside of a notebook can make it easily transferable to other colleagues in a presentable form right out of the box.
Sketch is a decent vector drawing program for mac and windows, but it has a pretty BS licensing policy that says any individual must buy a separate license for every computer he or she owns (check here if you don't believe me). Once I discovered that I said to myself, "yeah, fuck that" and proceeded to look for another vector drawing application. However, I found this nifty little github repo containing an application that will run Sketch as if it's been licensed! 😈
