Getting Started

June 03, 2014 ·

Sometimes it's very enlightening to look back at the beginning of a project to see how things got set up and how we started down the path that led to where we are today. In this post, I'm going to talk about the first ten tickets we created at World Singles as we kicked off our green field rewrite project five years ago.

My cf.Objective() 2013 Presentations

May 12, 2013 ·

Other than noting back in January that all three(!) of my talk proposals were accepted, I haven't blogged about them since, so the only information about them is on the cf.Objective() web site. The session overviews give a fair sense of what you should get out of each presentation and roughly what they'll cover.

Free Online MongoDB Courses

December 20, 2012 ·

I recently completed 10gen's MongoDB for Developers online course. It was the first time they had run the course so there were a few bumps in the road - and Superstorm Sandy closed 10gen's New York office for a while - but overall it went very smoothly, especially considering they had over 20,000 students sign up!

Python came early

October 25, 2012 ·

I just posted that I'll be learning Python in 2013 and going to PyCon. I hadn't actually intended to start doing Python until January - but then I signed up for 10gen's MongoDB for Developers course...
