With any trade or hobby there comes a point where the process how you work will have evolved past fundamentals and into a style that works specifically for you. Chriztian enjoys reading about how other musicians and coders do their work and learning from the differences. In that spirit he shares with us his "fumbling" through Umbraco development with his CPL process and CodeKit.
When we're stumped by a particularly pernicious bug in our code, or can't get a design to gel properly, sometimes the best solution is to step away from the problem (and maybe even your desk) altogether and put our minds to something completely different to reset and gain a new perspective. Chriztian shares his experience doing just that, turning the dreaded YSOD into a song in the process.
As we face challenges and accumulate failures, it can be easy (especially in the dark winter season) to become negative, both to ourselves and to others. Chriztian Steinmeier shares his technique for combating this mentality, by collecting his successes and speaking positively.
