In this series so far, I’ve introduced the concept of unit testing, talked about how to avoid early failures and frustrations, and then dived more in depth into the subject. But now that you’re familiar with the topic and reasonably well versed in it (particularly if you’ve been practicing over the course of this series), …

I have years of professional experience with and completed several academic courses about relational databases. This is a pretty familiar topic for me, and I’ve worked with a bunch of them: SQL Server, SQLLite, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and even MS Access. I’ve always found them, paradoxically, to be both comfortable and awkward. They’re comfortable because …

I’m thinking this is going to wind up being a shorter post, and so might some others going forward. Fact of the matter is that I’m burning the candle at both ends a bit lately. I’m under contract for my next Pluralsight course, and I’m also mired in the bureaucratic morass of marching toward a …

I was in a hotel the other night, and I had forgotten my Kindle at home, so I laid in bed for some time, catching up on my RSS feeds. I came across this post by John Sonmez, which I read with interest all the way through before I clicked over to read the post …

Last week, in a post that either broke the Google+ counter mechanism or blew up there in very isolated fashion, I talked about job hopping and meandered my way to my own personal conclusion as to whether it might be construed as unethical. I don’t think it is. Today I’d like to talk a bit …

A while back, I wrote a post in which I talked about offering too much code and too many options to other potential users of your code. A discussion emerged in the comments roughly surrounding the merits of the design heuristic affectionately known as “YAGNI,” or “you ain’t gonna need it.” In a vacuum, this …

I'm not a fan of the term "geeking out" because of what I believe it implies about technologists. Click to read in more detail about why I think this.

Editorial Note: I originally wrote this post for the SmartBear blog. Go take a look at the original here, at their site. If you like posts about collaboration, code review, and other topics, take a look around while you’re there. Legacy code is sort of like your house’s storage crawlspace. It tends to be a …

A Tale of Debugging The other day, someone came to me and told me that a component of one of the web applications that my team maintains seemed to have a problem. I sat with her, and she showed me what was going on. Sure enough, I saw the issue too. It was the kind …
