This episode, titled Developer Education through Books, Video Courses, and Conferences, shares the personal stories of three developers when it comes to how they learn and expand their skill arsenal, as well as how they use their knowledge to produce content for other developers to consume in the format of books and courses.
Adrienne, Alex, and myself share some publishing options and the amount of work that goes into each, with the end goal of honing our skills and helping out other developers.Read More

This group titled, The Tracy Developer Meetup, was started to give developers living outside of the Bay Area, a chance to collaborate with other developers in the same position.
If you’re unfamiliar with Tracy, it is a town about 1.5 hours from San Francisco and Mountain View, but significantly more affordable and home to many engineers that commute to the Bay Area for work.Read More

I want to take the opportunity to summarize what I discussed during this event and share the slides that went with my presentation.Read More
Today I have finished the final episode of a five-part webinar series on the subject of Couchbase, Express Framework, Angular, and Node.js (CEA2N) application development.
