I struggled for some time with intense wrist pain. I suspected this was due to poor ergonomics while computing. Over the years I iterated through a variety of input devices (Microsoft Sculpt, Trackman Marble Wheel, Magic Trackpad) with limited success. My current setup has finally alleviated my pain. I can use the computer for a full work day plus hobby project time — all pain-free. The key to my setup is an Ergodox EZ keyboard and a handful of software tricks.
I 💛 ./go scripts. If you aren’t familiar with them, give Pete Hodgson’s overview posts (1, 2) a read. I make it a point to include ./go scripts in every project I work on. A ./go script will significantly increase new developer productivity. Any open source project looking to lower their barrier of entry should adopt one. Since I value them so much, I created dot-slash-go, an extendible, friendly framework for project .

With the recent release of Visual Studio for Mac and Jetbrains Rider I’ve gotten the itch to explore the current state of the .NET ecosystem. Microsoft has made some bold strides in cross-platform compatibility and I was curious about the development experience. I was a .NET developer from the betas of Framework v1 to .NET 4. At that point I transitioned to MacOS (at the time OSX) and a variety of non-Microsoft languages and platforms.
At Earnest, we’re big fans of single sign-on (SSO). SSO is great because it provides a single set of authentication credentials to access multiple services. Administrators can easily assign (and take away) access to services and enhance security by requiring multi factor authentication challenges for services that don’t have such. If it’s a service someone at Earnest uses, we want it covered via SSO. We’re also avid users of Amazon Web Services.
I just rewrote our interest rate calculator. It distributes calculations across a cluster of servers. The codebase is 10 times larger but it’s sooo fast! Could I get a code review? — Scotty This is a fictitious email out of my bad dreams. (Yes, I dream of emails. I prefer that to dreams about debugging.) It’s not that I don’t love performance improvements or distributed systems — both are important and have their place.
