Does anyone do any coding outdoors in bright sunlight? I'd like to not be so tethered to the indoors while coding, but I'm not sure what I could use to make coding feasible in sunlight. I'm thinking of trying a head-mounted monitor (such as a VR headset or the Sony HMZ-T3), but I imagine it would be a rather miserable experience unless the resolution were at least 2K or so. There are also some high-brightness LCD monitors (http://www.dynascanusa.com/products/high-brightness-lcds/) that might work, but I can't imagine those would be very easy to carry around with me if I wanted to, for instance, sit at a park while working "from home." Thoughts?

+joshua lynch​ I have not yet purchased anything to facilitate it! Also I haven't actually done any work from home recently.

An example of poor UI design, as requested by Scott Meyers: the Slate mobile Web interface (via Google Chrome Beta on an Android device)

Here's our discussion about it:

I also dislike the permanent bar at the top, but that's not really relevant to Scott's principle.

My friend took a casual phrase I used at lunch and turned it into an insightful blog post. Excellent work!
Just the other day, I had lunch with a friend who just started working as an engineer. I asked him whether he was enjoying his job. He said that it's a bit different than he expected and that he's ...

My tips are:
1) wear black tee shirts with no pattern
2) keep your screen extremely clean
3) Wear a hat with a brim rather than sunglasses
4) Pay attention to which direction the light is coming from and pick the one that works. Usually for me that means facing with the sun in front of me behind the screen.

+Paolo Bolzoni  Admittedly I pulled the 2K number out of nowhere, but I do feel like it's difficult to be productive on a single screen unless it's fairly large. I like to have many text files open at once, each with fairly small but crisp and readable font.

Just a list of songs that might be good candidates for a blues/alt-blues/alt-freestyle dance. Many of them are a bit on the questionable side.
