VLog Episode 005: Work and deciding to quit

Sometimes you have to make difficult decisions to get to where you want to get. For me work isn’t just work. I don’t want to go to work, clock in and clock out, making those hours, those dollars, paying those bills, and then look forward to those holidays where I can finally – FINALLY!- live. […]

Alright- time for a new video because it sure has been a long time since the last video. I’ve decided to have a few personal blog posts and videos – not many but just a few since I’ve had so many people request them. No need to worry, there will still be just as many […]

Visual Studio error: CleanWPPAllFilesInSingleFolder evaluates to "" instead of a boolean

Had this fine problem today, here is how I was able to solve it. Of course this seems to be more of a ‘fix’ than a permanent solution, but maybe I can help a few more devs 🙂 I’m currently using VS2013 Preview (updating to RTM next week), but this error exists in VS2012 as […]

Mum makes an app with Icenium and Kendo UI Mobile + GitHub Part 1/2

You might be surprised that although I work for Telerik as an evangelist I haven’t tried all our products. We have a lot of products, and I don’t have a lot of time. But with BUILD coming up, I’ve decided to try out and learn the ins and outs of every single product we have. […]

What? Yes? Really? Yes! No? Alright maybe you weren’t that surprised or you aren’t that easily entertained…. John and I came in contact due to our relationship with Pluralsight and soon started talking a lot about fitness and nutrition after finding out that we had these two interests in common- as well as being programmers.

Looks like I'll be speaking at DataTjej ('ComputerGirl') Conference 2013

I think most developers, and everybody that knows me, know that I’m very, very, very, passionate about what i do – programming. And that I also really want more girls/women to realize that this is an amazing job- I am not exaggeration,- it really is. Unfortunately the number of female developers has been declining since […]
