  • The Web Is The New Desktop: Microsoft Announces Chromium To Power Edge

    I remember a heated debate I had with a colleague years ago about how web browsers are platforms (he was arguing they weren't...the irony is that he was a designer, but that's neither here nor there), and if the past few years have been any indication, this is most decidedly the case now more...

  • The Most Common Question I Answer on a Regular Basis: "How Do I Learn How to Write Code?"

    This is one of the most pervasive questions asked in my industry from folks who are not professional software developers, but perhaps have an interest in pursuing it as a hobby, or as a career: "So, how do I learn how to write code?" I'll start with my own experience as to how I got into...

  • Why Are Modern Browsers Such Memory Hogs? A Short Primer on Processes, DLL's, and Threads

    I normally don't like to participate in the so called "browser wars" and that is not the intention of this post. But, I feel that the title poses a legitimate question: What is going on with modern browsers sucking down memory like tequila shots these days? As a web developer, I have a...

  • On Microsoft and Backwards Compatibility: Windows 8 (and How to Make it More Usable)

    Note; If you don't feel like reading this entire post, at least read this: Start8 from Stardock Corp (30 day free trial, 5 bucks after that, and well worth it IMO): Get your start button back, disable hotspots, and boot directly to the desktop with that utility. Otherwise, read on. This post is not...

  • New Web Languages and Frameworks (and a Brief History of Web Programming): Pt. 1

    Software development has changed so much since I first got into the business over a decade ago, and lately, sometimes I feel like I’m becoming that 50 year old dinosaur who sits in the corner mumbling to himself about “the old days” of programming and how all the new technologies are...

  • Visual Studio 2012/TFS 2012: A Breath of Fresh Air

    Visual Studio 2012 hasn’t been released to the general public yet, but a friend of mine was nice enough to lend me his MSDN copy of both VS and Team Foundation Server (I run Sharepoint 2010 on my intranet, which is a requirement for TFS…the integration is incredible). While you’re at it, do yourself...

  • Are Personal Websites/Blogs Passé?

    I have a love/hate relationship with my personal website/blog. When I started this site almost 9 years ago, social networking wasn’t even in the vocabulary of the internet, and personal branding was a must have. Fast forward to 2012, and Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn are ubiquitous, and Tumblr is a...
