Learning by teaching

I’m not the guy that learns by reading the f***ing manual, I like to start working on something and read the docs only when I need to(however, I don’t ask questions until I read the docs and I get to page 2 on Google, because I don’t like to ask stupid questions). I always thought […]

Testable code vs clean code

clean code

  I wrote my first blog article 1.5 years ago, and it was about how TDD made me a happy developer. In that article I talked about how TDD helps me write clean code, refactor code without breaking it, decrease debugging time and improve my career. I’m still a Test Driven Developer, but when I […]

Future plans for the blog

I think that one of the coolest jobs right now is to be a Pluralsight author. Teaching others what you know is awesome, getting paid for it is even more awesome. I’m only 23, so I don’t have much experience, but I would like to author a Pluralsight course in the next 1-2 years. Until […]

New challenge for Word Flow users

Fast Swipe

1 year ago Microsoft announced that the word flow keyboard is coming with Windows Phone 8.1. It was so good, that the world record was beaten by a WP user using word flow: http://www.windowscentral.com/microsoft-word-flow-keyboard-sets-world-record-16-languages, and for me it was one more reason to be proud for being a WP user. This is why I decided to create […]

Codealike vs WakaTime

I don’t know how other people are, but I like to challenge myself and beat my own records. It’s something that motivates me, and when I’m working on a project, this helps me a lot. I like to see that today I debugged less code than yesterday, or that I had less interruptions than yesterday […]
