One hour a day 308: Podcast on Design Patterns

Very long show today but as always from Coding Blocks it's a very good one. It's Coding Blocks episode 11, Design Patterns Part 1 - You Create Me!

The guys talk about design patterns and starts to go through the creational patterns from the book Design Patterns, also known as the Gang of Four book. I have it in my bookshelf and it's a great reference for all developer's.

Check out the show notes for some great references and also check out the Design Patterns Library at Pluralsight.

I love these deep dive discussions!

One hour a day 304: Podcast on Ember.js

Today I've listened to JavaScript Jabber episode 111, The Ember.js Project with Eric Bryn.

Ember.js is another JavaScript web framework. It's built for productivity and Eric goes through Web Components, Performance and many other aspects of it. The opinions what is the best one, Angular, Ember, Backbone, etc. is as usual divided. It all comes down to preference and what you need to do. Ember.js sounds like one worth to keep in mind.

One hour a day 302: Podcasts on Zone.js and Startup Metrics

Another day with two short shows. First up is JavaScript Jabber episode 110, Zones with Brian Ford.

Brian is from the Google AngularJS team. Zone.js is an execution context and has been built for use in AngularJS 2.0 but is a standalone micro framework to be used in whatever you like.

Next is Startups for the Rest of Us episode 187, Startup Metrics (A Slide Deck by Andreas Klinger).

Rob and Mike talk about a startup metrics and how to get the most value from it.

One hour a day 300: Milestone and Podcast on Coffee

Another milestone today and another geek out, it's .NET Rocks episode 983, Coffee Geek Out with Hugh Griffin.

I like coffee, drink too much sometimes but some days I don't drink at all. I don't have to drink coffee so when I do I want to drink GOOD coffee. At home I have a burr grinder and I don't go for the cheap stuff when I buy my beans. This is actually the way I do it with most things, quality before quantity.

In this show the guys geek out on coffee with coffee roaster Hugh Griffin.

I've reached 300 and can see my goal closing in. Feels very good!
