For a little while now I have been casually poking around and learning Swift in the context of iOS development. One of the things that excited me about learning Swift was hearing it
Just recently I was talking with a student about using node clusters and realized that it would be a great addition to the collection of N-Queens comparisons I have done so far. If
Today I hit a small pain point while working in React and decided that enough was enough. It's one that anyone working with es6 and React will run into: binding your component methods.

N-Queens, for those unfamiliar, is a classic algorithm challenge which I first came across several months ago. I came across it again recently in working with a group of students and someone suggested
This week I had a passing conversation with another engineer that highlighted a misunderstanding that I had about what exactly it means to create a curried function. My misuse of the term had
This week I had an exciting epiphany about a particular part of my workflow that I’ll admit is not my favorite, styling. While working on a project in React I found it
Currently I have the great fortune of getting to work on a project using React and Redux on the front end. This is not, however, a post about why I am finding this
Today I’ve decided to write what I am terming a test run on a theme of blog posts I’m considering, ‘Code Teardowns’. I recently was introduced to the site iFixit while
Recently I was very excited to begin working on a new project for which my team would be using React with Redux and writing in ES6. I was thankful to find that setting
