Years ago I was a full time web software developer, with the LAMP stack my sword and Eclipse key bindings in my muscle memory. Or something.
More recently I've been in a PhD program and my coding skills have gone rusty. Meanwhile, the landscape changed. Ruby? Mongo? Heroku? My research is now at a point that I'm developing a working system so I'm having to learn anew. Which can be fun. Especially that the web has made coding into such a social activity. Github: awesome. To do my part in the community that has helped me so much in learning the modern world of web development, I started this Tumblr to let me post the little personal discoveries I make along the way. So maybe it'll be that much easier for the next person.
And I hope to have fun while doing it.
