I’ve been an Audible listener since 3/7/2016. I listen almost everyday to books about business (leadership, career skills, startups), marketing, motivation, psychology, science, and technology.
It all started with a $100 Timex Sinclair 1000. That led to half a dozen years as a child sysop, an after-school business sending floppies around the globe, and eventually winning a two-year programming scholarship. Along the way, I’ve hung onto a lot of the stuff—my first ST-225 and Rubik’s Cube, the original want ad and some green bar from my first computer operator job. I even have a business card from the time I pitched a tee time reservation system to Mark Aguirre!
Here are a few other items I recently unboxed.
I ran into this exception while launching a Vert.x project in IntelliJ (using a Gradle run config). I couldn’t find any reference to it. After hours of clearing caches and reinstalling plugins, I finally upgraded from (my perpetually licensed) IntelliJ 2018.2.7 to 2019.2.1. Voilà! It’s magically fixed. I’m unclear if it is a Gradle or Kotlin plugin issue or what, so I don’t know where to post the issue. Let me know if you have any insights.
Congratulations! You’ve made it to the finish line.
It’s official! Today I graduated from Udacity’s Android Developer Nanodegree program! It was a whole lot more work than I expected, but it was worth the effort. I made some cool apps, learned some new tricks, met some great people, and this! 🙂
Dagger 2 is great, but it can be intimidating! It’s also difficult to find current information. This post is intended to help fix that by using a raw—“just show me what to change!—format. Here’s how I set up Dagger in a recent project. This example is in Java (as was required for my Udacity capstone project).
Congratulations! You passed all of the requirements for the Associate Android Developer Certification exam!
I recently took a break between terms of Udacity’s Android Developer Nanodegree program so that I could take Google’s Associate Android Developer exam. Finally, the results are in! Pretty happy to pass it on the first try. Queue the emojis! 😜😁
There are currently only 156 of us in the alumni directory for all of North America.
(I have also since graduated from Udacity!)
