Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #200

Greetings!If you're in the states, Happy belated 4th of July! I've been quite busy behind the scenes so my publishing schedule took a hit. I just hit publish on a recent blog/vlog about my thoughts on marketing for developers and makers. Having built a number…


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #199

After a bit of a break, I'm back! I'll be frank, over a brief break I considered pressing pause on Web-Crunch. Live is busy right now and I love contributing to this publication but time is of the essence lately. I was ready to put it down until I saw some re…


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #198

Greetings!This week I hacked on a new Ruby on Rails application template that might be my new go-to. The template leverages some new tech called Vite to take care of the front-end. Rails ships with Webpack by default. As an app size scales, Webpack can become…


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #197

I'm a long time Killswitch Engage fan. Howard Jones is no longer in the band but his current group is great as well. I saw them about a year or so ago live before the pandemic.


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #196

This is probably my favorite album following the early days of Bullet For My Valentine. I can't say I like the direction they've been going today but they have some bangers!


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #195

Welcome to another edition of the Web-Crunch Digest. I've been suffering from a bit of burn out so if my publishing schedule has seemed a tad slow this is why! I think it's good to take breaks from tasks you do consistently day in and day out. I hope you'll a…


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #194

Welcome to issue #194 of the Web-Crunch Digest!This week I kicked off a new series revolving around creating a basic API using Ruby on Rails as the backend. The driver here is to introduce new ways to use Rails if you use something different on the front-end.…

I'm a big fan of metal music. This band is intense and high-energy. Really loving the dynamic sounds they produce.

Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #190

One of my favorite bands is called Sevendust. They've been around for years and just recently did a live stream concert showcasing their "Animosity" album. That album doesn't have a bad song on it in my opinion. Hope you dig it!


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #189

These guys came up on my radar while listening to a New Core playlist on Spotify. Dig the track. I checked out the rest of this release and mostly prefer this song but it's a pretty decent album.


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #188

Hey there!Last week was a busy one. I managed to get a new guide out for installing Tailwind CSS v2.0 while using Ruby on Rails. The new Tailwind CSS upgrade is an exciting one. It's great to see how fast and far the framework has come. I struggle to want to …


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #187

I haven't listened to a lot this week but I was excited to hear the new Architects single drop. The band is evolving a bit but I'm still a fan.


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #186

I never used to be a Doors fan but my parents were. Having lost both my parents I find some comfort in listening to the songs they used to when I was younger. It's funny how much music can have an impact you. It changed my life for the better. Everything I do…


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #185

I'm a metal head. I saw Phinehas a couple years ago. They have a very tight sound for a fast paced and aggressive group. Been a fan for some time and they happen to be playing as I type this :)


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #184

I've been a Zephead ever since my parents introduced me to the band. When they were younger they went to many of their concerts. I'm jealous to this day! We had a collection of albums that inspired me to become a guitarist from age 11 on. Listening to "Presen…


Web-Crunch Digest - Issue #183
