Style

I find that writing out a process or tip helps me remember it and cement the details of it in my mind. In addition, if I ever refer back to my notes, it is easier for me to parse my own style of note taking than others'. As such, everything in this repo was written with basically only myself in mind as the expected reader, so take it with a grain of salt.

I also tend to view swapping out more precise and accurate terminology with general descriptors, and even colloquial language or analogies, an acceptable trade-off for increased readability. I think in general, programmers get way too into terminology and end up alienating new coders by using unnecessary extra-precise terms for things that don't actually need them.

TL;DR - I tend to write in a simplified style for myself to read later, that might not always use the right terminology, but tends to get the basic point across. Not for everyone.

Elevator Pitches

There are so many new things in tech (especially in web dev) to keep track of and learn. I've started a sheet of "elevator pitches" so you don't have to read through 10 paragraphs of marketing fluff just to learn what a new framework does.

Other notes

  • If you see a bunch of stuff added in a single commit, it probably was me moving something from Dropbox or OneNote into this repo. I have collected a decent amount of notes, scratchpads, and cheatsheets over the years and have them in various spots that need to be consolidated into this repo.

Personal To-Do List

  • Auto-generate the index list on the front-page (this page)
  • Easier navigation between pages

    • maybe add a fixed dropdown menu to switch between pages
  • Clean up some old pages, import remaining from dropbox/onenote

Virtual Box

  • Reminders:
  • You can install guest additions via device menu, and then install into guest

    • This might be necessary to share folders
