Hello world!

July 28th, 2010

So for those of you who haven’t been following along, this is the inception of the Railscasts Project.

I recently watched the movie “Julie & Julia” and was inspired to create a fun, structured program to become a better developer.  If Julie Powell chose to cook all 524 recipes from Julia Child’s cookbook during a single year, I wondered if I could implement features from the 224 Railscasts episodes produced by Ryan Bates before RailsConf 2011.

Mind you, I’m a mother of two children under two and a half.  So, it’s not just my husband and my cat’s well being concerned here.

In fact, when I told my husband about this new endeavor of mine he said, “Are you crazy?”.  But when he saw my crestfallen look he said, “Go ahead, give it a shot.  What the hell.  I’ll put the kids to bed tonight.”

So, tonight I checked out Julie’s blog on blogs.salon.com.  Talk about boring!  I don’t mean the content, I mean the aesthetics of the blog site itself.  And what’s up with blogs.salon running really slow tonight?  Since it’s been a while since the movie has come out, I don’t understand why it’s taking minutes for the site to render.

Boo.  Pass.

I made a short, misguided commitment to weblog.com before I realized that I should just stay put and chronicle my exploits here on Geek Mama.  After all, we’ve got syntax highlighting!

Today is my last day at the MBTA. So proud to have served Boston alongside my amazing team at CTD. I’m joining Indigo Ag to help farmers sustainably feed the planet, but before I go I wrote up a thing about what we’ve done on MBTA.com. bit.ly/2kjr15O pic.twitter.com/r4acHkz78j
