In late December I sat down to write my annual personal software
development year-in-review post, like I had in
2016 and previous years.

to 2016. I could not put my finger on why...
look back at what I accomplished professionally in 2016 is complete,
so with this post I'm looking ahead at my software development goals for
2017 along with the programming ecosystems I will be coding in. The three
areas I will be focused on in 2017 are...
In the past several years I have taken time at the end of December to
reflect on the coding projects, software talks and tutorials

year in review post continues the retrospectives I performed in
At PyCon 2015 in Montreal, Kate Heddleston
and I presented
Choose Your Own WSGI Deployment Adventure.
If you'd like to create your own Choose Your Own Adventure...
Before you learn node.js to handle WebSockets or any type of full-duplex
client-server communication, check out some Python options first. In this
post I'll lay out some of the resources that I found most helpful for getting
started coding Python web applications that use WebSockets.
It's not necessary to have seen either talk but...
2014 was a solid year for improving my software development abilities. This
year was different from past years because I moved completely out of software
consulting and into coding open source projects.
This post will briefly cover my highlights from 2014 and go into the insights
I gained from my work throughout the year. I'll cover...
