New Product Launch: Introducing OrganizeWP!

TL;DR: I launched a new product! Check out OrganizeWP I’ve had this idea rolling around in my head since the last update to Hierarchy, and I’ve just now realized that was almost four  years ago to the day. The origin of the idea however roots itself nearly three years before that. It turns out I […]

There’s power in your choices. This is a post about Chrome.

It’s likely that by reading this you build part of the Internet. It might be a small corner, but it’s yours and you built it. In the big picture not a lot of people can say that, and as a result your decisions carry weight. I don’t mean to sound weighty but I think it’s […]

Sublime Merge

I woke up to some interesting news today in that the makers of the beloved Sublime Text have debuted a completely new git GUI client called Sublime Merge.

I recently moved this content from Monday By Noon where it sat for over a decade to its new place here on this domain. I learned a lot about a lot during that time and as I iterated on the site I played around with permalinks a number of times. There was a time when […]

MyLocalDev Part 2: MEMP and Valet

Every local development environment is based on a stack of some sort. My goal here was to remove as many barriers to development as possible, and for me that aligns with installing everything locally.

MyLocalDev Part 1: Background

I recently updated my computer and in doing so decided to start fresh instead of migrating everything over. I’m a developer and with that comes a ton of tinkering which results in a lot of extra cruft lying around over time.
