Left Lane Drivers

Dear left lane drivers, I’m sorry but I have a deep down hatred for you. I have driven almost 600 miles over the past two days and you annoy me to no end. The proper way to drive on an interstate is to remain in the far right lane until you need to pass, at […]

Now that CodeIgniter development has been taking over by BCIT a lot of people are wondering what will happen with the framework. I’m still not really sure what the future holds but I’m happy to see them put together an interim council. A lot of names I remember from back in my CodeIgniter days and also some friends.

Here is a list of the current members:

  • Andreas Pfotenhauer
  • Andrey Andreev
  • Ben Edmunds
  • David Wosnitza
  • Jim Parry
  • Lonnie Ezell – Council

Above all I’m happy that Andrey, David, and Ben are on this. All stand up guys that have done a lot for the framework over the years.

This is an epic post about the state of our industry written by Elizabeth Naramore.

Some days, it’s hard to feel awesome about the tech world we live in, isn’t it? There is a constant outpouring of rage, criticism, harassment, misogyny, and personal attacks. We love to disagree and judge and publicly shame for mistakes, and we shake our fists in the air and scream when we think someone’s wrong. We thrive on this sea of negativity we have created. Sadly, when something truly inspirational does happen, its beauty is criticized, discarded, and drowned.

The whole post is quote worthy and you should read it.

I had the pleasure of being on the latest Full Stack Radio podcast with my friend Adam Wathan. In this episode we talked about my Wardrobe blogging app, JavaScript, and writing.

I was actually really nervous but had a great time. Go give it a listen and subscribe.

At the time of writing this, Node.js is now only 70.4% JavaScript. And not only does it now have C++ and its predecessor C (which is basically like running your app on 2 versions of Ruby, for you Ruby developers out there), but Node owners, Joyent, have also injected an unknown language called “Other,” threatening the maintainability by developers outside the company.

NYT:

On Tuesday night, the first game of the 2014 World Series drew just 12.2 million viewers to Fox, making it the lowest-rated Game 1 on record. Game 2 on Wednesday night fared somewhat better, with 12.9 million people tuning in.

For me it’s the start time. With an 8pm start time, that means at the earliest it will be off is around 11:00.

On the odd chance, it is a good game then it could go longer. So I’d rather just not see any of it, instead of missing the most exciting part.
