  1. Why Automated Testing Matters

    Your software development team released an MVP application into production. The application only had a few features and the codebase is far from perfect, but there are big plans for the future! Your team presses on, adding features and your user base continues to grow. After a few months, cracks...

  3. Orange-crowned Warbler hiding in bushes on the San Diego coastline. Birding should be a place where all feel welcome. As part of #BlackBirdersWeek there is a live stream today at 7 PM ET hosted by @blackafinstem and @audubonsociety discussing #BirdingWhileBlack. It’s a great chance to allow black birders to be...

  4. Brown Pelicans are one of the most striking birds you’ll find along the west coast of the US. My favorite thing about them is they will make dramatic dives into the water to catch fish, sometimes multiple birds in a row. They’ll also fly together in small flocks neatly lined...

  5. Today kicks off #BlackBirdersWeek and day 1 is celebrating people who are #BlackinNature. This event was organized in response to the threats made against Christian Cooper while he was birding in NY. All people should feel safe to enjoy nature. There are lots of great naturalists, birders, photographers, and scientists...

  6. I’m sad today reading up on the latest news on the riots and protests in response to the unjust deaths of black Americans. It saddens me knowing that minority communities have cried out peacefully about their oppression and have been ignored. I’m saddened that a suspicious $20 bill was a...

  7. This one was close…too close; as in this house sparrow was right next to me so I couldn’t get it in focus quick enough. I still like how the background turned out.

  8. This weekend Bekah and I saw a family of Peregrine Falcons on the San Diego shoreline. I’ve been wanting to see these birds for a long time and we happened to find a whole fam while out on a hike. The adults can reach speeds of 320 km/h (200 mph)...

  11. This #succulent has really thrived in the last month. I had cut off a sizable offshoot recently and both plants have grown since then. Between having a little more space and more regular care while we are home, the mother plant was happy enough to send out a flower stem....

  12. Today, I participated in the #GlobalBigDay birding event. The past year, I’ve gotten back into bird watching and even gone on guided tours into jungle forests. Even though I stayed in town today, I still managed to find 27 species including this Greater Roadrunner in our neighborhood park. I even...

  13. Happy #earthday! One of my succulents was overflowing its small pot so I’m trying to propagate it. It’s still crazy to me how plants are able to grow with not much more than sun, water, and air. Hopefully our 100°F/38°C temperatures this week aren’t too much. The mini ones are...

  14. My post about our time in Venice is finally posted! This is the last post in my series about our trip to Italy last October. The Doge’s Palace, shown here, was one of the cool places we toured while staying in the city. When Venice was a regional power, the...

  15. A Weekend in Venice

    As a boy, I remember my grandmother telling stories of her and my grandfather’s trip to Italy. The two of them were invited by a sibling to go on the trip with most expenses paid. For some reason, the destination that I remember hearing about most vividly was Venice. I...
