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.
During my time working as an engineer and software consultant I've been on some brilliant teams that were able to build incredible things in a very short amount of time. I've also been on teams that are, ehh, not so agile... Indeed, when I look up Google's definition for the word agile right now the first entry is, "able to move quickly and easily".
Although there are many flavors of agile development that all emphasize slightly different concerns, in this article I'd like to discuss three things that I consistently see done by the top software teams. I believe that any engineering team not already practicing these three things can get an immediate productivity boost by implementing them well.
So without further ado, let's get into it!
I solved a ClojureScript error today, and after getting stuck with a strange error and scouring the internet for information I ended up on this Github issue thread where I had been asking for help on this exact issue almost 2 years ago! Well then, that seems to me like a great candidate for a blog post! So, in this post I'll show you how to get past the XMLHttpRequest Error that you might encounter when building a ClojureScript Lambda function that makes an http request! By the way, you can check out the full source code for this project here. Alright, Let's go!
After talking to a good from and colleague about life and the "famous coders" in the programming industry, and it really made me reflect on my own "online engineer brand". All of this sort of coincidentally coincided with New Years 2020, and while I hardly ever make real resolutions I made a lot of goals for myself in this new year and new decade.
