VS Code – Open HTML using tasks

I love VS Code. If you didn’t know that, you haven’t taken my class, followed my tweets, or ever met me. I like it as much as a CrossFitter likes to talk about CrossFit or a Vegan likes to tell you how healthy they are. Yes, I like it that much. I was irritated byRead More

Medium Posts are coming…

The Code Monkey

Hey All, I have been writing a little bit more on Medium rather than here, mainly because they are different posts. They are more lifestyle kind of posts, rants, and just me being me.

Coding Best Practices – Really?

I tend to start with a disclaimer for similar topics, but not in this case.

Planning blog posts

Why WordPress and Azure suck together

I could start with all the wonderful things about Azure, but that is not what this post is about. ¬†It is about why I won’t use WordPress and¬†Azure together.
