  • Letting Perfect Get in the Way

    I’ve been contemplating a phrase for a few days now. It applies to writing code, as I do for a living, as well as a whole host of other things… from relationships, to home life, life goals and endeavors… the list goes on. Don’t let perfection stand in the way of progress. I know what […]

  • Sublime 2 Power Tools

    Sublime 2 - 4 Pane Grid View

    This is a very advanced technical article. For years, as a developer, I used the fantastic Textmate software for writing code. I got used to it. It’s a power editor for Mac OS X and has bundle support (think of bundles as extensions or plugins) that enhance the functionality of the software) for just about […]

  • TUTORIAL: Developing Locally on WordPress with Remote Database Over SSH

    Today, I went about setting up a local WordPress install for some development I am doing at work.

  • WordPress and PHP 5: Be the Change You Want to See

    The other day, I wrote the popular 10 Things You Need to Know About WordPress 2.9. As usual, most people are very excited about the new release which is now in beta and available for testing. In the article, I made a few fundamental errors which I have since corrected. Notably, I mentioned that WordPress […]

  • GNIP Spells a Whole New World for Data APIs

    Allow me to get nerdy. It has been a long time since I got downright giddy about something developer-oriented. Lots of new APIs are coming out all the time and I usually take a once over look at them to determine if there is something cool there. A lot of time there are cool things […]

  • For PHP Devs, a Twitter PHP Class

    At the end of this post, this site is going into a twitter free period of two weeks. I’m sensitive to the fact that we talk about Twitter quite a lot and not always doing a good job of reaching into all of real life like we’d like. So after this post, Twitter will not […]

  • The Art of the Mashup

    The other day, I was talking to the CTO of a company that is working to build a web technology solution for a problem that exists due to the arcane infrastructure and systems already in place in the niche target industry.
