If there’s one thing I’ve been lacking in, it’s being a social coder. I’m a social(-ish) person but I’m not that social when it comes to code. I’ve noticed that the best code is written by people who are out there communicating their thoughts, like the jQuery or Vim projects. It makes sense since you’re using a language to express an idea into a logical (or functional) flow. Communication of an idea is absolutely required then.
Ben wrote a very light post about getting a first job as a Rails developer. Of course, the details of the post can be applied to most other languages and practices, be it Android, iOS, web design or even C++, have you! But it’d have to be proved for that to be fact. Nonetheless, it did get me thinking; I have this blog and I occasionally post about little things that don’t really show my current situations with code. I’ve decided to write a post at least twice a week about my current code projects and things I’ve learned in code. It not only helps people who are just searching for stuff on the Web, but it serves as a memory anchor for me so I don’t have to remember details.
As the Doctor would put it, Hello!
