Big ships like Windows doesn’t make sharp turns very well. The amount of users alone is enough to make most development teams be resistant to changing the UI – remember everyone uses Windows and many of them doesn’t know, like or care about technology.

JAMstack + WordPress

The dynamic duo! Read about why it is so awesome!

DevUtils.app

This is indeed a very cool app – I can see many types of development being supported by this.

GitHub is awesome.

Now it let’s you make a README in markdown for you profile page!

Linux for development

Comparing Linux distros for development purpose.

There is no doubt in my mind that Linux is the best development environment.

Both macOS and Windows are getting there though – the Unix background of macOS and WSL on Windows really moves them forward.

My best advice is to have a project – with no purpose it will be very difficult to learn anything…

Output of go test -v is now streamed real time – this is really a huge step up for Go developers.

Notepad Hype! ?

The new Notepad app for Windows 10 is here!

Word wrapping and search/replace is supported!!! This is exciting times indeed!

I agree that Markdowns 1-to-1 relationship with HTML is problematic at best.
