    Too expensive, I don't think my company would pay for it. Probably going to Gig City since I can drive to Chattanooga.

    this plus Chris Mccord's talk moved me firmly over to the elixir camp.

    I can’t complain, get to write only in elixir and make healthcare apps

    Bleacher report just seems awesome, or Weedmaps

    Dockyard of course would be a cool move, since All the Phoenix broz work there

    Also .Net seems pretty awesome if you know enough to make sense of what the relevant MSDN pages are talking about, which can be a bit of a wildcard from my Xamarin experience last year. There were descriptions of core Xamarin stuff on MSDN that literally had a note saying something like "description to be added later"

    On that note MSDN actually seems pretty good for established stuff, which is surprising considering how much negative talk I see and hear about Microsoft on the developer side. Maybe it's just because I'm still a peon :idk:.

    If you're working on .NET core there will be documentation around anything you can imagine using. Some of the older stuff can be hit or miss, though.

    Also, a lot of the negative talk is probably people used to the old ways of Microsoft. They are really hitting it hard in the open source world now and seem to be doing a lot of the right things.

    My question is I am confused with Php. I am totally inexperienced with it.

    I have a website I am building and updating with Webstorm. It has a simple Php script. Webstorm says you can’t use it to build Php. However it’s all server side Executed. So why can’t I just upload the edited Php script to the server and let it run when it is called?

    Azure Data Studio is pretty tight. It's a lot cooler than SSMS and you can connect to pretty much everything

    I'm a Drupal/PHP guy.
    Drupal is misunderstood. It's a framework *to build* CMSs, not a CMS itself imo. Its shittiness depends entirely on the competency of the folks deploying it.

    I feel like we were stuck on using SSIS too long for automating processes like data cube updates because it was what our contractors knew. It's refreshing getting to use stuff like alteryx a lot more now, albeit it's different from ETL

    What's the best way to learn python instead of staring at my work computer bored as fuck while my brain slowly melts out of my head? Are there any good online sites?

    I would say learn JavaScript. Between Node.js and the different front end frameworks you can accomplish a lot. JS is interpreted too, so it's easy to start learning online without needing to install anything locally right away. I've probably got a lower opinion of Python than most, though.

    After some quick Juggsian research these all seem solid. I use the W3schools for reference all the time.

    https://javascript.info/

    https://www.learn-js.org/

    My startup experience was pretty awful. So bad that idk if I want to go into the details.

    My take-away is that the CEO is incredibly important. It should be an engineering type , not some sales and marketing bitch. Also get any promises of future compensation (like equity) in writing or else it's just lies.

    If you're one of the founders, equity can be a big part of your compensation, but for later employees equity is worth near-zero. Your annual salary is likely to be equivalent to your total compensation.

    So .. make sure you don't get fucked on salary. If you take the salary for a gov't job as a comparison, add +$10,000 for healthcare and +5% for the 401k you won't get, and +10-15% for the pension you won't get, and maybe another $5k-$10k for vacation time you might not get -- and then take that annual figure and convert it to per-hour on a 35-40 hr/wk basis, and then apply that hourly figure to 50-60 hours/wk to get the salary you'd need to ask to make it equivalent. Depending on the details, a $90k gov't job could easily equate to a $150k - $200k startup job, and that's not even attempting to put a dollar value on the lack of job security.
