Hello and welcome to the Coding Truck! My name is Jamal Hansen, I am a developer and data analyst who wants to share what I've learned and start a conversation online about these interesting topics.
Also, I am a big fan of food and cooking so there is a high likelihood that the post will be infused with food metaphors, ingredients and maybe even some recipes.
That's an excellent question and the answer is quite simple. I already mentioned that I am a big fan of food and trying out new and interesting things to eat. You might have already guessed that I enjoy eating at food trucks. Here where I live in South Texas there are a lot of food truck options to choose from, each delivering a mouthwatering menu.
I also have a passion for data and developing and hope to share a discussion with you about these topics. So, before I get myself too far down the rabbit hole, let me say that the basic idea is Software + Food truck = Coding Truck.
Another great question. There are so many excellent developer blogs out there with insightful posts on a wide range of topics. I'll tell you that it is a bit daunting.
I will start with SQL and relational databases, a subject that I know well and have given introductory training on a few times. Databases are used everywhere today and knowing how to create and interact with them can really give you a advantage when you are looking for a developer role.
This blog utilizes Jekyll which is a wonderful static site generator written in Ruby. I'm starting out with the whiteglass and it's been great so far. (Edit: I've moved to Gatsby since I wrote this post)
I am making a commitment to post once a week, but there may be posts more often as I am getting things started and building up some content.
I'd love to hear back from you. What topics are you interested in discussing? Do you have SQL questions?
