I first learned about the MVC patterns back in 2009. While elaborate and confusing at first, I understood that this level of organization would be great for large applications. In 2012 I learned Ruby on Rails and now, my latest endeavor is learning to write in Node/Express. So far it’s been an incredible technology to work with. Here’s what I like:
LESS extends CSS with dynamic behavior. In a nutshell it helps us to write CSS in a DRY method (don’t repeat yourself). By using variables, mixins, operations and functions, we can write less, more intelligent code (hence the name).
I’ve been using LESS on the server-side with my node application. Here are a few of the features I enjoy:
When designing a responsive UI, it is advantageous to approach the layout first from a mobile use-case. Once the visual hierarchy has been established at can be translated into more appealing configurations for larger use-cases. This is a trusted method for ensuring well thought out user experiences. More information to come.

An original song I wrote about what happen when a person becomes more than just a friend.
I’ve spent 3 weekends a month in spring, summer and fall of 2012 enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of Ohiopyle, PA. If you’ve never been, it’s the must see attraction of southwestern PA. The Youghiogheny river runs through town, which is rittled with outfitters, restaurants and gear shops. Camping, fishing, hiking, white water rafting, rock climbing and biking are at the heart of Ohiopyle.
The company I work for: Think Through Math (formerly Apangea Learning) recently undertook the monumental task of rebuilding our .NET backend and Flash front-end system with a Ruby on Rails application. It’s a beautiful setup.
More to come.
