Daily Coding Problem

I signed up at dailycodingproblem.com and I’m posting my solutions in a Codepen.io collection. Four questions in, three were not tough at all and one completely stumped me. I bought this book to compensate: Introduction to Algorithms, Second Edition I got an old edition because it’s 20% the price and but it’s the same edition […]

Rich, Happy, and Saving the World

What You Do and How You Do It

When examining my career, I describe most of my efforts both ways. It’s why I’ve pushed so hard to improve on a craft I believe in. Until today I don’t think I’ve ever sold myself that way. What I do: WordPress developer, front-end developer, full-stack developer, PHP developer. How I do it: on time, just-in-time, […]
