Welcome to my little place on github pages.

I'm a developer and a course instructor. I teach courses on web development, JavaScript, C# and more.

When I'm not working, I try to spend most my time with my family and friends. I might be skiing (mostly downhill), flying drones, riding my motorcycle, be out photographing (you can see some of my photos on Flickr) or just doing even more programming.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you find something useful here, in one of my Github repos or gists!

I have used them on my mac, but the procedure should be the same for different Linuxes and Windows versions too.

Mythbusters: Unit-testing

I found a question titled: "Why is code quality not popular?" on Stackoverflow yesterday.

Several people had listed reasons for not doing unit testing. There were a lot of misconceptions there.

Here are the main reasons mentioned against unit testing (the myths) with my response:

My webpack templates

These templates should get you started developing your web ideas.

The templates are framework neutral starter kits for building web apps or npm packaged components with Webpack and Babel.

They come with tools for testing them in the development web server, and building the static assets to publish on your web server.
