My annoyance at how links were being displayed in Slack finally reached a tipping point. They had to be more useful than they were being. TIL Open Graph.
Recently I’ve been playing with Elixir in my spare time. It’s a dynamic, functional programming language built atop the Erlang virtual machine. I try to practice TDD when writing software to encourage flexible designs. One habit of mine is writing out many tests early about how I imagine a thing to work. Of course all these tests fail initially which can be overwhelming when run together. It’s much more desirable to focus on one failing test at a time throughout the red, green, refactor process.
Learn ALL the things! That’s basically the motto at Big Nerd Ranch. And in my last post, I wrote about how my team, The Artists Formally Known As (╯°□°)╯︵ ɥsɐןɔ, learned a lot of new things when we tackled hardware hacking with Arduino, NeoPixels and Artoo.
