Sherlock Holmes, consulting developer

Stuart Halloway is a name in the Clojure community. I was rewatching one of his talks this morning and I thought some of you would enjoy it. Lots of gems on approaching programming and development. Nothing radical or new here but lots of good stuff very well presented. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

My code works -- and I have no idea why!!!

One of my pet annoyances is how code ecosystems have gotten more and more complex. Sometimes I think tool designers put together build systems to show how clever they are rather than to solve dependency problems as cleanly and simply as possible. Over the break I wrote GitHub Org Explorer - a tool to help deal with GitHub classroom repositories. It worked but was using "basic" authentication where it sent a username and password with every request.
