Recently I’ve been on a quest to find more technical blogs written by women. In today’s post, I share 10 of my favourites, on topics ranging from Kubernetes to web accessibility. It’s a list personal to my tastes, but the aim is to ensure that we don’t lose sight of the fact that you don’t need to be a man to be at the top of your tech game.Continue reading
In my recent posts, I’ve been exploring how Roslyn-based code analysers can help to make your code cleaner and more robust. I’ve tried to keep it relatively IDE agnostic so far. In today’s post, I’d like to talk about some of the pain-points involved with using code analysers in VS Code, as well as some of the progress being made by the community.Continue reading
In my last post, I talked about why I love code analysers. Towards the end, I mentioned how easy it is to get started, but I glossed over the fact that flipping the switch on an existing application can be a pretty harrowing experience. In today’s post, I hope to make the jump a little easier by walking you through a 4 step strategy that I’ve found helpful on a couple of projects.
Static analysis can be a great way to ensure that your code is robust and clean. Unfortunately, many static analysis tools are prohibitively expensive and/or fiendishly complicated. In today’s post, I’d like to talk a little about Roslyn-based code analysers, which cost nothing and are easy to set up. In fact, keep reading for seven reasons that they’re ace.
In a recent conversation, I asked what practical things I could do to help address the gender imbalance in tech. The person I was talking to (who is well known for their advocacy on the subject) responded that they were unaware it mattered to me because I’d never publicly spoken about it. Well, that changes today. No more hand-wringing from me. No more “oh isn’t it a difficult situation” or “whatever can be done?” In today’s post, I’m going on record as a proud feminist who’s prepared to take action.
