My Experience with WebAssembly and Rust So Far

I recently ported an A* implementation of mine from an old Unity maze project to Rust and WebAssembly. It's open source on GitHub now, so check it out!

Syncing Atom Plugins and Themes Between Multiple Machines

One thing I love about Atom is how effortless it is to sync preferences between my work and personal Macs. If you're logged into Atom's website, you can simply star any plugin or theme to save it to your starred list. Here's my list of starred plugins.

2016 Year in Review

RSS Feeds & Slack

This past week, I've been experimenting with Slack as a notification center for my girlfriend and I. As we all know, Slack is a very powerful tool for teams.

Links From My Pocket #1

Welcome to the first issue of Links From My Pocket! For a while now I've wanted to share a list of web dev related (and unrelated) links from my Pocket treasure trove. See, I'm a heavy Pocket user.

I'll save that for another blog post.
