In case you missed it: at the new year, we sent our 100th issue of this newsletter, and so I'm celebrating by giving away licenses to some of my favorite developer tools. I'm giving away licenses for a different tool every week - all to the subscribers of Developer Tools Weekly. This week, I'm giving away licenses for Working Copy
.Working Copy is the powerful Git client for iOS that clones, edits, commits, pushes, and more. Yes, it's a Git client - on your phone or tablet. I'll draw the winners at random from subscribers at the end of the week.
- The Communicative Value of Using Git Well
The DVCS has made the notion of the commit independent from the notion of a push - or an inclusion into the branch. This means that individual commits can tell a whole story themselves, which helps code reviewers and archaelogical digs through your codebase.
- Understanding Async Await
When I first saw async/await, it looked like magic. Concurrency at a different level of abstraction, one that removes many of the common problems with a typical threading model. But also one that requires understanding and practice to master.
- How to move your project to TypeScript - at your own pace
- UTF-8 BOM adventures in C#
UTF-8 is the most popular encoding, and for good reason: it contains most characters, it's backward compatible with ASCII, and it has wide interoperability across the industry. Except for .NET, that is, which throws some unnecessary BOM at the beginning of strings.
Published at the beginning of every week.
