The Quirks of JavaScript

Let me preface this by saying that I definitively enjoy programming with JavaScript. It does have its quirks though!

Updating My Likes Page with Feedbin

I've been tweaking my site here and there and the one thing I recently did was change how I populate my 'likes' page. Previously I had been doing it manually, but recently after having listened to the founder of Feedbin on the Changelog Podcast, I decided to try something different. I wanted to use a nice feature Feedbin has to make the page better.

Chats with Kent

I've been finally catching up on my (all-too-massive) podcast backlog and figured I'd place a shout-out to the podcast Chats with Kent.

Mocking React Router and useParams

One of the things I needed to do recently was write unit tests for one of the pages of Digital Family Cookbook where I pull a value from a query parameter in the URL. I ended up having some trouble with it so I figured I'd share what I did to get it working.

Setting Up GitHub Actions on .NET Projects

After seeing Git Actions at work at my job, I decided that I wanted to see what I could do for my personal projects with GitHub Actions.

Refactoring Loops

Ever feel like you can never completely get started with a project? That's sometimes how it feels with the fitness tracking app I'm building.

Switching Platforms

I've been using Jekyll to run this blog for the better part of the last six years. But recently, I've been giving serious consideration to switching to Gatsby or Next.js.

Some Small Site Updates

Over the course of the last couple weeks, I've made some small improvements to my site. None of them are particularly huge, but I like the end result.

Unit Testing with MSW

A little while back, I started a new project. I have been using spreadsheets to track a lot of my fitness goals. This approach generally works, but I thought it would be easier if I had an app for that. So I did what any self-respecting fitness enthusiast developer would do...make one myself! But with that, also come unit tests.
