This blog post will cover an interesting issue when testing in Vue. Examples will be drawn from a Hypermedia API project I’m working on.

The GitHub repo for the examples is at https://github.com/jdesrosiers/api-browser-web, and the two commits that will be referenced are Allow two-way binding for UrlBar (referred to as…

In this post I’d like to go over my thought process and approach to getting out of difficult situations, when programming. Specifically, I’ll address ways to move forward or make progress if you get “stuck” on a problem. This is related to a previous post I wrote on Problem Solving

In this post I’ll be writing about my general approach to problem solving, when programming. It will be in the context of a Hypermedia API project I’m working on (which I will call the “HAPI” project). …

Probably everyone who is a Software Engineer or developer of some sorts has struggled with starting on a new project. Sometimes you need to learn a new language, learn a new framework, learn about the domain you’ll be working in, get familiar with a new and vast codebase, or a…

Introduction

This is the final post in a series on experimenting with estimates. I worked on implementing an HTTP server in Java. Here are parts one, two, and three. Basically I kept track of my progress using a burn down chart, and wanted to see if there was any point estimating…

This post introduces an open source project that I’ll be starting, and is meant to help me understand the problem and scope, while helping others not familiar with the subject get up to speed as well.

The project is to build out a Hypermedia API, with supporting applications. I will…

This post continues a series I’ve been writing on an experiment I’ve been doing with estimates. Here was the last post, part 2. …

Introduction

Recently I’ve been working on implementing an HTTP server using Java. I also got exposure to functional programming, through building a Tic Tac Toe app in Clojure. In this post I’ll cover how I’ve been working on applying what I’ve learned about functional programming to my Java server. …

Recently I’ve been working on implementing an HTTP server in Java. I’m using a Burn Down chart to track my progress and velocity (see this past blog post).

I have not been on track to finish by my deadline, and have had to speed up the pace at which I…

Introduction

I wrote a post a while back, about experimenting with estimates. This is a continuation of that, with reflections about my progress and thoughts about working as a consultant.
