My friend Ashley came across another video of Vermont. This time it’s about Stowe, the town I live in. Enjoy.
It’s no surprise I love living in Vermont in part because it’s different from other places I have lived. And this video from Skyworks really captures parts of why I love it here.
Amy Hoy wrote the first version of her book Just Fucking Ship in 24 hours, which is awesome. Along those same lines, David Smith built an app from start to finish in about 6 hours - also awesome, and he posted this video that shows the entire process.
This looks like it was a lot of fun. Wish I had known about it when it happened last year.
A founder, or maybe the person is a manager type, asked on Quora, “How do you make programmers work 60-80 hours per week?” While the question is a pathetic one, the answers that follow, especially the first one, are worth a read. And you should certainly read the answers if you happen to be one of those sad founders/manager types who wants their of programmers to work long hours. In short, if you are trying to force your programmers to work 60, 80 or more hours per week, then you are doing it wrong.
Last week Melanie and I had the pleasure to join 13 others in Courchevel, France, for NSSnow 2013. NSSnow is a gathering of mostly Mac and iOS developers who love to ski and snowboard, well, mostly snowboard but skiers were welcome - Melanie was the token skier at this year’s NSSnow.
There are times when it is tough being a developer. But you can help make a difference in a developer’s life by simply giving him or her a hug.
Here’s a great video by DevShop that shares some of the pains we developers go through on a regular basis. Watch the video then give a developer a hug.
Weird Al’s new video White Nerdy is too funny. He even makes a reference to my favorite programming language Pascal saying “At Pascal, I am number one”.
Nick Hodges, Delphi Product Manager, has been busy for the last 22 days piecing together the Thirty Camtasia Demos in Thirty Days for Delphi. These short videos are the perfect tutorials for those new to Delphi.
The Delphi Oktoberfest video is a funny video from the 1995 Borland Developer Conference. The message still applies today.
