Versioning Interview

Adam Roberts (who you might recognize from our interview with him), interviewed me for the Versioning newsletter. I’m publishing my answers here for y’alls perusal as well! Which dev/tech idea or trend excites you the most at the moment, and why? I love that new JavaScript has arrived. I don’t know if “new JavaScript” is really the word for it, but that’s what it feels like. Major syntax improvements coupled with state and component-based thinking, coupled with powerful frameworks tying it all together: React, Angular, Vue, Ember, etc. Plus the ecosystem they live in, which often includes ES6+ processing, building/bundling, state management tools, and more.

Displaying the Weather With Serverless and Colors

I like to jog. Sometimes it’s cold out. Sometimes it’s cold out, but it looks like it isn’t. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping. Then you step outside in shorts and a t-shirt and realize you have roughly 2 minutes before exposure sets in. I decided to solve this first world problem using a lightbulb to display a certain color based on what the temperature outside is. It works better than I expected, and that’s saying something because usually nothing works out like I want it to. This was a fun project to build, and since it...
