A quick guide on how to accidentally spend $2k in two clicks live on a client Zoom call.

This is very simply idea that has helped me in a number of different ways in the recent past: recording my initial reaction to things. All this means is immediately saving my thoughts on a topic somewhere, as opposed to the usual … “I’ll write this down later”.
Most of the time, deployment sucks. Using a continuous integration app can help automate your deployments so you can focus on writing code and buildings things. In this post I’ll show you how to set up a basic Django project with CircleCI so that publishing your code is as simple as pushing to GitHub.
It can be tricky to properly configure ‘ember-ajax‘ to play nicely with ‘ember-simple-auth‘. You will need to manually configure a service to mimic the authorisation functionality you get for free when using Ember Simple Auth with Ember Data. This post will show you how to get up and running properly.

This post will outline how to go about creating this pattern yourself.
