Keep A Markdown Journal To Get Your Projects Done

Submitted by dimitri on Sun, 01/01/2017 - 18:00

Software development is hard. Organizations, small and large, can be very inefficient sometimes: people waste their energy on endless meetings, vague specification documents, pointless "reply-to-all" emails.

IntelliJ Live Templates for Javascript Development

Submitted by dimitri on Tue, 12/27/2016 - 21:30

I'm a IntelliJ IDEA user since late 2013. After a long (and not without problems) liaison with Eclipse IDE, and before that with the glorious Borland JBuilder, I wanted to try something new.
