Making My Own Health App in Quickbase

A while back I had several posts discussing utilizing technology to overcome my depression. While all of that certainly helped, I eventually found myself overwhelmed with my original solutions (Monday.com application) and stopped using it. Don't get me wrong, it's a great concept, but doesn't offer enough customization to simplify like I would like. So… Continue reading Making My Own Health App in Quickbase

Udacity Classes 2: Shell Workshop

After completing the Version Control with Git course from Udacity, I decided the next helpful free course would be on using the shell. It's a quick introduction, but I've been using the shell in both Linux and Windows for quite a few years so I figure this will be good just to again fill in… Continue reading Udacity Classes 2: Shell Workshop

Udacity Classes 1: Version Control with Git Notes

In order to bolster up my ol' skill-set, I decided to check out my old online free class stomping grounds: Udacity. I decided with all the home projects I had been doing, I should probably supplement with some formal learning. While that is certainly true Alexis, I'm looking to be more specific about what that… Continue reading Udacity Classes 1: Version Control with Git Notes
