Debugging is a fairly essential part of programming, and this post aims to give you a few general tools and strategies to help you debug effectively.
The CSS grid is a two-dimensional layout system that allows us to stack and line up content in columns and rows. One-dimensional Flexbox elements can be used for smaller components in the grid layout. And since it is built into CSS, the native properties allow for better performance.
This post will go through the basics of CSS grid, how to set up a simple grid layout, and how we used it to clean up our own website.
Clem is a program intended to make development with Clojure easier by helping explain Clojure’s sometimes cryptic error messages. It integrates with your REPL an uses an online database to attempt to find more human-friendly messages to explain your errors.
This post will go through the steps required to integrate Clem with Cursive.
Cursive is an IDE built on top of IntelliJ that supports syntax highlighting, code completion, repl integration and other features for Clojure and ClojureScript. Unlike many other Clojure IDEs, it is comparatively simple to install and has ordinary GUI.
Did you know that there is a programming language that’s not only consistently enjoyable to use, but also amazingly productive—and which was the highest paying language according to the 2018 Stack Overflow developer survey? In this talk, Professor of the Practice and App Lab director Jeff Terrell introduces the programming language Clojure.
I just uploaded a video showing how to create a fork and a pull request in GitHub. This is a little more complicated than pull requests within the same repository because a repository owned by somebody else typically doesn’t allow you to push commits directly to it. Check out the 9-minute video, or read on for details.
A few days ago, I gave a talk to participants of the 2019 UNC Makeathon about how to create a backend web service.
This morning I gave a lecture about git to my COMP 523 (software engineering laboratory) class. (Update 2019-10-03: I just published a video tutorial of the same content.) Some know it well; others barely know what it is. Here are a few resources I’ve collected on learning git, with some notes about how appropriate they are to beginners vs. more experienced people.
A couple of days ago, I gave a lecture to COMP 523 (software engineering laboratory) about Redux.js. I developed a simple example based on the (perhaps familiar) tic-tac-toe idea. Then I built an app based on Redux one step at a time to demonstrate its key concepts.
HackNC happened the weekend of October 6–7th, 2018. Leading up to the main event, there were a few talks, including one I gave on React Native. It was intended for programmers who didn’t have any prior experience with React.js (on the web) or React Native (for mobile apps).
