Getting set up to code... again
I previously wrote about getting my Snow Leopard installation set up to run Git. I’m going to do the same thing here, except with a fresh Mountain Lion installation. Install Xcode Since we’ve done this before, I know Homebrew will yell at me if I don’t have Command Line Tools for Xcode installed. Go to the App Store, download the latest Xcode (since we’re on the latest...
F**king SVN. How does it work?! An SVN primer for... →
I’m finding this super useful because a) I’m a designer, and b) I need to use SVN. :)
Twitter Bootstrap, Less and Sass: Understanding... →
I’m perusing through this article at the moment, so I thought I’d share. For a coding nub like me, this is really helpful. :)
Hashing for privacy in social apps →
An excellent article I found Googling around while looking for advice on how much of users’ information I should store as hashes. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, that’s okay; Matt Gemmell explains it very well. If you want to get s bit more technical, check out Coding Horror: You’re Probably Storing Passwords Incorrectly.
Installing Eclipse and such
Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. Work and life and such have been pretty busy. But hey, I filed my taxes today! So I think that’s a start towards finishing some of the necessities before getting into the nitty gritty of learning how to code. :) I just installed the Eclipse IDE on my iMac so I could get back into Java. Java was the first “real” programming...
Delicious Programming Fixes →
Hey guys! I frequently come across articles that help me figure out problems I’m having while trying to write code. I want to share these articles but I don’t think they warrant a copycat article written on this blog. :) SO, I instead created a Delicious stack for all of you to enjoy. If you’re an author of this blog, sign up for Delicious and I can invite you to contribute...
Setting up my Windows box
In my last post I set up my iMac with Git and MacVim. (Which you should read because I didn’t want to repeat a lot of those steps here.) Well, it’s not easy for me to code on the move with my iMac, so it’s time to set up my laptop which runs Vista! (I know I know, I should use Windows 7…) Installing gVim ANYWAY, first I want to install gVim. Following this guide, I went...
Beginning work on the Tumblr template
Install Homebrew First thing I wanted to do was install Homebrew. So I pasted the following into Terminal: /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/gist/323731)" The rest of Homebrew’s installation instructions can be found here but the only really important part was above. Trying to to anything else in the Terminal tells me what I need to do next — install...
I ♥ HTML Entities
So I uploaded a quick little logo using OmniGraffle and exporting my awesome design to a 128x128 PNG. :) I got the idea from Stack Overflow, since I thought it was a cute nerdy joke and I think Jordan likes those sorts of things. Sean and I are mature enough to handle it being the battle standard for this blog, haha. Mostly I just wanted something out there quick.! Plus it looks cool when it shows...
So this is the beginning
Hey all, and welcome to <code></code> which I like to pronounce “code-end-code”. I wanted to launch this on Tumblr because it uses Markdown readily and it’s pretty popular (which has added benefits you’ll see in a minute). I don’t want blogging to be this huge hassle like it’s been in the past, especially with group blogs. Tumblr is an excellent...
