I'm speaking at LinkedIn tonight for SouthBayJS's inaugural meetup. I'll be talking about automation, analysis, and all the cool stuff that isn't actually code.  

If you happen to be there, make sure to say hi!

A guide to understanding us engineers.

[edit: I forgot to add an important one:
Working as intended = Reality is wrong, and has to be fixed to match the output of the code]

In just a few weeks my house will be sold and i'll be leaving San Diego after 9 awesome years. Thank you Napster, Riot Games, and OneHealth for a great time in SoCal!

I'm moving up to the south bay area in the middle of May. If anyone's based in Mountain View or nearby, please reach out with tips on the area.

Don't read this article. Coding on whiteboards is the worst practice that has ever existed and it kills me that even companies like google still do this.

What bugs me even more is the suggestion to "Practice" coding on the whiteboard. You know what skill that nets you? The "coding on the whiteboard for interviews" skill.

The recruitment and hiring process could use some real innovation, not trying to get people to be better at scribbling code with a dry-erase marker.

#DevTools Tip: Quick access to screencasts (experimental)

The DevTools may soon give an indication of the number of connected devices you have which can take you straight to a new Devices Pane allowing you to remote debug + screencast.

The book I am co-authoring with +Jason Strimpel has recently been released on +O'Reilly's early release program.

Jason is writing parts 1 & 2 with some truly excellent pieces on writing great visual components and I am handling the 3rd part on +Polymer and all related technologies that make +Web Components a modern day reality.

The book travels through making a classic JavaScript component with jQuery (or the like) and then migrates all that thinking towards the world of web components. It's an honor to be working with Jason and I am excited for the eventual v1 release.
