React Hooks have finally landed! So many emotions. Here’s a small selection of my own in chronological order: ? ? ?…
Happy New Year! Looking forward to another year with my beautiful wife and our little family!! 🎉♥️
I just bought a grill last week. It’s nothing fancy, was an inexpensive charcoal grill that was on sale at Lowe’s. I didn’t want a gas grill and I didn’t want to dish out a bunch of $$ for my very first grill. That said, I’m pretty excited about it and eager to try out a bunch of new recipes as I learn!
I tried this Nitro Cold Brew from Tandem Creperie & Coffeehouse the other day for the first time. So good! ☕😍
For the longest time, developers have taken Chrome OS machines and run tools like Crouton to turn them into Linux-based developer machines. That was a bit of a hassle, but it worked. But things are…
While this is pretty exciting, it still seems like Crouton would be needed to be able to really work on ChromeOS as a full development environment. For example, unless you used a browser-based dev environment, like AWS Cloud9 or shelled into a remote server, you’d probably still want to set up an environment on your local filesystem – which means installing software such as Node, PHP, Ruby, (whatever you work on these days).
Update: It’s worth noting that, while not having tested it out myself, it sounds like these Electron-based applications aren’t super performant on ChromeOS – at least not until they get GPU support.
None the less, it’s still pretty cool to see how Chromebooks are evolving!
A couple months ago, I went on a work trip and got to go back to my favorite city. While most of our time was spent working at our AirBnB, we got to enjoy our evenings at some of my favorite places and restaurants. I even got to try a few new places that I never made it to while I lived there!
I flew in a couple of extra days early to hang out with my uncle and a couple of friends. But, as always, I wish I had more time!
A friend of mine got me this cool R2-D2 pillow for my office couch. It will go great with my plans for a Marvel and Star Wars theme! 🤓
