The Ah-Counter is responsible for noting and keeping track of words and sounds used as a ‘crutch’ or ‘pause filler’ by anyone who speaks during the Toastmasters meeting. Words may be inappropriate interjections such as and, well, but, so, like, you know. Sounds may be ah, um, er.
Let’s say that before deploying to Heroku we want to check for any assets changes, and in case we find some we want to do some work.
If there are changes, we want to precompile assets and push any changes back to repo.
Here is example deploy script that does it:
Example how configure semaphoreapp.com CI so that it can run tests requiring postgis:
Today I was playing with exploring my LinkedIn network – just for fun and as a pretext to play with Neo4j.
I’ve managed to ask simple questions like “With whom do I have the most contacts in common?” or “What is the most popular first name in my network?” (Piotr & Marcin)

I am quite happy with this purchase, it’s really convenient to be able to see who is calling or read a message at simple glance. I have chosen Sony Smart Watch, mainly because it runs Android and supports my Nexus phone.
I have created my first app in two sessions on consecutive weekends (two Sundays). The first session was about being able to deploy simple “Hello World” app to the watch.
On 14th of December I’ve attended a CodeRetreat in Melbourne. It was a Global Day of CodeReterat – the 3rd one I was a part of. This year I’ve done something new, rather then facilitating I focused on enabling others to do so. I have run 3 google hangouts trainings1 for first time facilitators ( #1 #2 ) and hosts. I’ve also worked closely with the great team organizing CodeRetreat in Melbourne. It was the first Global CodeRetreat I’ve attended, rather then facilitated :)
