The Master Developer’s Code…About Coding…

December 10, 2018

A Code of Conduct about Coding and a play on words for sure!

It seems every profession, association or club has their own “code” of operation. A set of rules or procedures that govern how members dress, interact and methodically complete a project or task. Well guess what? We have one too. And ours is Waaayyy better because it’s a code…about coding (if you can’t do anything with that, maybe you’re just dead inside…).
Presenting…

The Master Developer’s Code

A set of 5 lessons that have been amassed over 20+ years as a programmer. Granted some of the lessons here can sound pretty obvious if you think about it, we rarely do in fact. Sometimes we get so caught up in wanting to be the best, wanting to WOW, that we can end up making a mountain out of a molehill or worse; not listening to client needs. After this video, I recommend checking out our “Keeping it Simple” article if you haven’t already. It’s worth it.

Let It Flow: 5 Things that will Speed up your Web Workflow

October 30, 2018

Applies to web design and just about any type of programming too!

A HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL!!

Let’s start off with a scary premise… You’re starting a project or maybe you’re knee deep in the middle of one and you just feel stuck, or trapped. You’ve become mired in details and trying to be a programming hero, and you feel like you’re going in all directions at once! You need a better way to manage your workflow, young padawan…

In this video we lay out 5 steps to speed up your workflow whether a web designer or a programmer you be! Without too many spoilers, I’ll give you a little taste of what I’m talking about with tip number 4: Get the UI in front of the client ASAP. You’d be surprised (or maybe you wouldn’t…) how many programmers and designers want to have this almost completed, work of DiVincian (yes that’s a word now) art to show the client. Nope, “You can mock all this up in HTML and you get the feedback from your client as quickly as possible.” Wouldn’t it suck to build something up and then have to change “…core behavior in your application because the client didn’t quite know what they wanted until they saw it?” Check out this video and free up some more time, money, and sanity for yourself.

Need2Nerd #4 – Say NO to NoSQL in 2018

July 25, 2018

Duration: 12:29

So what is noSQL? From Wikipedia:

A NoSQL (originally referring to “non SQL” or “non relational”)[1] database provides a mechanism for storage and retrieval of data that is modeled in means other than the tabular relations used in relational databases.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NoSQL

In this podcast, I explain why for 99% of projects, you are probably better off with an SQL database. The need for sharded (sharding) databases, and horizontal scaling (one of the mentioned key advantages of noSQL databases) is exceptionally rare.
