I’m having too much fun with Scratch. I just started this dinosaur chomping apple game. Need to add some dangerous objects to avoid and maybe a winning score. For now, time for bed.
Jolene Kelley is a Craniosacral Therapist in Portland, OR. She hadn’t updated her site in several years.

I may consider looking into Sublime libraries that […]

I found this great WordPress guide on installing a local development environment using brew and npm for wordpress, php and mysql. With the db running through brew services. Loving it. Install was fairly easy, with a little bit of troubleshooting (why oh why did I not document the troubleshooting part!). Here’s the site: http://www.brodybits.com/wordpress/osx/homebrew/2016/03/09/quickstart-wordpress-testing-with-osx-homebrew.html I cannot for the life of […]
This great 1:22 minute talk is about The state of women students in CS. I highly recommend it.

In my job search I’ve been emailing many relative strangers lately. I’ve always just used “Thank you” but I’m getting tired of it. I found this helpful article.

Start React (A product of GeekyAnts) has a few starter templates for React and React Native. http://startreact.com/
This person is hilarious. It’s also a great perspective on what React is and isn’t. http://blog.andrewray.me/reactjs-for-stupid-people/ Laughing outloud to this little tidbit: There are three separate, competing quickstart guides.
