In Defense of Tooling

May 30, 2019 - 2 minute read - Comments - tooltoolingdave-dunfieldquotecurriculum

A quote (on a curriculum vitae) that I’ve enjoyed: I am a firm believer in the value of tools, and often spend significant time at the beginning of a project developing tools specific to the needs of the project. This always pays off in the long run. I use tools to: Perform tasks not otherwise achievable Automate tedious/repetative processes Simplify steps in the build/debug cycle Eliminate “human error” in scanning, translation etc.

Automatically keeping the intermediate history of your work using git

May 29, 2019 - 2 minute read - Comments - tooltoolboxgitdocumentationspikeautomationmarkermarker-interfaceflowproblemsolution

This is another tool for your toolbox: using git to automatically document your development process (special cases only.) Context When I’m spiking a feature, I usually get in the zone (e.g., Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow), and I can forget my good engineering practices, searching for that desired answer. After a few of those bouts of coding, you realize you’re wandering. You circle around, get lost, get back on track, then get lost again.
