Ya know, for a photo-based app, #snapchat is actually pretty bad at taking photos compared to the stock camera app.

+Steve T not real often, but lasted year I switched to solder less cables from pre-made and evidently I suck at them because they've gone out twice this year.

My +Ember.js shirt and stickers for the next TriJS meetup came in! Love Ember's direction. Hyper productive once you learn the framework, but most of all keeps the team consistent - even junior JS devs. Much less "thar be dragons" code than with Angular on big projects. Love Angular for smaller stuff, but for big apps Ember is so awesome. #webdev #javascript #emberjs

Hey Everyone! Wanted to share a review I did moving from iOS to the Lumia 950 XL. I've actually ended up deciding to move back to iOS for the time being, but I'll be back in about a year when the UWP apps catch up. Excited to see what the Cortana integration brings. Would love your thoughts or maybe some tips on workaround for some of the things I ran into.

I’ve been using an iPhone with a Windows PC for about the last 4 years. Before that it was an Android Phone and a MacBook Pro. Admittedly, I’m an early adopter and generally like to play with new technology and see how it can improve my life. I love Windows 10 and the beautiful balance…

I had a case on the Lumia 950 XL but I could feel the heat through the case and I thought to myself... The iPhone never gets this hot from little task such as syncing my Facebook contacts. I will miss the phones incredible camera, the iris scanner and Hey cortana. I really want a windows phone but not for this price with this product. PC cooling technology huh? Not so much.

Code This, Not That:  JavaScript Maintenance and Perf tips!

I uploaded my talk from last night's TriJS Meetup.  If you're into Javascript, check it out and let me know if you have any tips I should add to the deck for future versions of the talk.  I'll attribute it to you (be sure to let me know what link to your profile I should use, too).

Wunderlist is exactly the case study against this photo. It's beautiful, works seamlessly, and the latest iOS update is top notch.

Introduction
Freelance Software architect, speaker, blogger, guitarist. I am a Microsoft MVP, so I get to fly around the country and see cool places and teach and learn from really smart, great people. I architect systems and write software for a living. I have worked at Amentra, a part of Red Hat, and on websites for Discovery Channel, AOL, the National Academies, and more. You can schedule me to talk about how to make your site or product awesome, too. I write about software and making development teams work better together at ryanhayes.net. I speak at technical user groups. I play guitar at my church. I've played guitar with Calling All Cars all around the East Coast, including Six Flags over Georgia. I prefer milk and juice to Coke. I like egg and cheese bagels.

Around 2001, my family and I made a trip to Gatlinburg. I had been playing guitar in a band since I was 12. I had used all kinds of guitars, but my 16 year old heart was set on a Gibson Les Paul. I mowed yards for two summers saving up, including asking for money for my Birthday and Christmas...all going toward the guitar. When I had saved up enough, I headed back to The Music Outlet. The staff let me play a few of the guitars, and I finally settled on a 1960 reissue honeyburst Les Paul. I showed the guy the one I wanted and he said, "Great! Come with me." He took me upstairs (which was a total mess, with boxes everywhere). He took me to a stack of boxes along the wall, and started opening them up. He pulled out 10 different guitars like the one I wanted! Each with different wood designs and of course, sound. He let me pick out the ones that I liked the looks of, then hooked them up to the exact amp I had back home. I found the type of guitar I wanted, and was able to pick from many of the same ones, so I was able to find one that I loved. Then when it came time to check out, they beat the lowest price that I had seen on the internet! These guys are great and almost 10 years later I'm still playing that great guitar. When you see a review that these guys have a great selection, they're just talking about what you can see! Ask, they probably have it! Check 'em out!
