Or what we don't keep track of
Simply put: we don't sell your data, we don't mine your data, we don't look at your data and we don't share your data.
We do not share your data with any third party. The only third party involved with storing your data is Parse, who we use as our backend hosting provider.
We do not . . .
Or one way I learned to find them
All too often on Hacker News, I come across a comment like this:
wouldn't most of them be able to build something like this for internal use in a single day
Yes. Of course, it might only take a day to build, but it will be maintained forever. And that means dealing with potential bugs. That means testing. That means deploying. It means . . .
Or my presentation from MidwestPHP 14 on PHP and RabbitMQ
You've optimized your database queries, you're using memcache and APC, and you've even upgraded your servers. But now your processes are taking too long to run. A script running in cron every minute just isn't going to cut it. Where do you turn next? This talk introduces you to RabbitMQ specifically, and queues in general. . . .
Or how to do something in an agile fashion
What to do:
- Find out where you are
- Take a small step towards your goal
- Adjust your understanding based on what you learned
How to do it:
When faced with two of more alternatives that deliver roughly the same value, take the path that makes future change easier.

Or how I do support
So, you purchased TwoDo from the AppStore and you need support? Support right now is a fairly simple affair. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! That's pretty much it. Be sure to include "TwoDo Support" in subject line. I'm sure if I get a lot of support requests, I'll just actually fix the problems. And if I get a lot . . .

Or how to learned to stop worrying about perfection, and started releasing more software
Today I released fsr-logger to npm. It's not an earth shatteringly awesome library. It's a wrapper over another library, file-stream-rotator, but it's something I had to write twice, and use in two different projects. I found myself copying the code over. CMD+C and then CMD+V. From one window to another window. One file to . . .
Or how to spend less time reading more
Last year I read 37 books. I don't pretend that this is a high number. I know that there are people that read far more books than that. However, I also know that 37 books is far greater than the majority of other people. Still, it's important to note that I don't read all these books sitting down turning pages. Rather, I read the . . .
Or how to elevate yourself above just a 9 to 5 code monkey
Understand and respect your users
You are building something for someone. Whether that someone are other people just like you, people mostly like you, or people completely different from you, you need to understand your user. This also means that being a better developer isn't a once-and-done event. It's something you have to constant . . .
I've invented a lot, I just haven't patented it
Maybe instead of listing patents, I just listen inventions that I could have patented but figured they were so obvious, it would only be insulting to try and patent it.
