Clojure in Atom

Since I just recently made a getting started with Clojure in Sublime Text video, I decided to also make a video showing how to get started with Clojure in Github's Atom. I hope you enjoy it as well.

After the last Clojure MKE (Milwaukee) meetup, I decided it would be good of me to make a quick video showing others how to get up and running with Clojure on Sublime Text. I hope you enjoy it.

Quick Tip: How to Rename Email Flags in Mail.app

Keeping email well organized is a challenge all of us face. Tags, Flags, and Inbox Zero. This short article isn't going to solve all your email woes, but will give you a quick tip to help you on your way to email nirvana.

Mail.app on the Mac has a nice built in feature called Flags. Using flags helps to categorize and even note the priority of a message. Rather than keep a taxonomy floating in your head, I've written a quick tutorial over at Tuts+ to show you how to give email flags meaningful names.

How to Run a Django Site with Apache, mod_wsgi, and MySQL on FreeBSD 10.1

The beauty of developing with popular web frameworks like Django is that a lot of repetitious work has been done for you, so you can focus on building your site. It's also great to know that the core of what you're running has undergone the scrutiny of a large open-source community and should be less susceptible to large security holes.

Whether you're a developer or not, one thing that is not inherently simple is knowing how to get these web frameworks up and running outside of your own development or testing environment.

I’ve written a full tutorial over at DigitalOcean covering exactly how you set this up on a FreeBSD droplet using a standard Apache, mod_wsgi, and MySQL stack running on top of FreeBSD 10.1.
