Posted on Thu 03 July 2014 in misc • Tagged with open, frameworks, ruby, sinatra

Just added the ruby-sinatra implementation to the task-api repository.

Last week, I pushed up a new implementation of the task-api project, this time in PHP and BulletPHP.

So far, I've created a quick test framework in PHP using PHPUnit and Guzzle ...

Testing new waters

Posted on Mon 23 June 2014 in misc • Tagged with programming, open, frameworks, code

I've been developing software for years now (more than 15). During that time, I've used a lot of languages (PHP, Python, Java, Javascript, Objective-C in the last few months). There is something exciting about diving into a new language, and generally a new framework.

I also generally end ...
