Greetings from Vermont! It’s been a long time, but I’m happy to be back! In this NixMashup, Git Tips Of the Week. Gists in WordPress. On Spring Security. Photo Booths for Dogs. Last of the Coders. Tattoos That Unlock Your Phone. The Learning Rabbit Hole. Check-in For and By Humans.
Git Tips Of the Week
This is the latest item which found itself on my Geek Bucket List of Things To Read. Written by Eclipse Guru and Author Dr. Alex Blewitt in 2011, around 30 posts on various Git subjects with an Eclipse slant. This link is to the series finale listing all of the posts.
Gists in WordPress
I’m thinking about doing more with GitHub Gists, and since I spend so much time in WordPress it’s good to see this WordPress.com guide on adding Gists to WordPress posts.
On Spring Security
I’ve implemented Spring Security on my NixMash Spring app and blogged about it on NixMash. This post from 2013 is the best overview I ever read on the subject.
Photo Booths for Dogs
I don’t understand people who think dogs are somehow less human than we are, or less interesting. Amazing photos of dogs in photo booths.
Last of the Coders
Hilarious true-to-life comic strip on a low level coder being treated like a king by colleagues because he’s skilled in an outdated technology everyone else dreads having to support in his absence.
Tattoos That Unlock Your Phone
This article lists 10 implantable wearables coming to a body near you. The Tatoo wearable that can perform functions like unlocking your phone earned Link Subject Spot.
The Learning Rabbit Hole
Because learning never stops, nor the inadequacy we can feel as coders chasing proficiency in rapidly changing technologies. Great anecdote here how the goal of becoming proficient in one area expanded to a sense of required expertise in several other areas. The author offers suggestions on how to feel okay about our state of learning and capabilities, however inadequate relative to the state of the tech.
Check-in For and By Humans
I liked the advice in this StackOverflow answer on what to check-in with Eclipse Projects. I only ever check in things done by humans. Anything else that is generated (whether automatically or not) should be easy to regenerate again and is liable to change.
