Becoming a Professional Developer Is More Than The Latest Library
As a teacher and speaker one of the questions I’m often asked is which language/technique/etc should an aspiring developer learn first to get a job as fast as possible. Most of these folks are ambitious and capable but, in following many over the course of the years, I find few ever become great at what they do […] The post Becoming a Professional Developer Is More Than The Latest Library appeared...
A Review of 2016 with a Preview of 2017
For as much bad as I’ve seen in 2016 I can say, at least for me, it wound up finishing on a really positive note. I guess I can say, at least with the factors I can control, that I feel like 2017 has more promise that any year in recent memory. We’re settling in, […] The post A Review of 2016 with a Preview of 2017 appeared first on Chris Wiegman.

A good firewall, smart account management, following coding standards and best practices… These are all good things but, as with anything else you can have too much of a good thing.

I have a voice
It’s been years since I really blogged on here regularly. Sure, I’ll get up a post or two every now and then but I haven’t really written anything since 2013-2014. The irony: for most of that time I’ve spent more time working on the code for this site than I ever have. These last few […] The post I have a voice appeared first on Chris Wiegman.
Onward and Upward
What a year so far (I’m finding it hard to believe it isn’t over yet). For the first time in a while I find myself getting back into the swing of things with this website as well as personal projects such as Better YOURLs and Primary Vagrant, the latter having received a nearly complete rewrite […] The post Onward and Upward appeared first on Chris Wiegman.
