One of the best¬†ways to prepare salmon is to poach it, in just a little liquid.¬†We often use this ‚§Ĺshallow poaching‚§ method with a little white wine and herbs.
You can also make a simple sauce and poach the salmon in it, which is what we are doing here with¬†these fillets, cooking them in a sauce of onions, tomatoes, white wine, and capers. Preparing¬†salmon this way perfect for a quick and and easy midweek meal, and elegant enough for company. Continue reading "Salmon with Tomato, Onions, and Capers" ¬Ľ
A simple, effective piece of advice from Jason¬†FriedA couple of years ago, Jason Fried gave me the simplest, most effective advice I've ever received: It seems so obvious, something you've probably heard before: it never hurts to ask. But when you actually put that advice into practice, the results are rather¬†amazing. In 2014 we sponsored a project management conference. As sponsors we got all the usual promotion: our logo on some slides, some tweets, email callouts,¬†etc. We wanted to get the most out of our sponsorship, so Jason encouraged me to get creative with what we could do. Here's what I¬†said: Jason completely agreed, but I couldn't think of a good way to pull this off. How could we clearly announce who we were and give them a sense of our friendly personalities?¬†
In early 2015 I recognized a major hole in my professional work‚§¶-‚§¶I hadn't made a single open source contribution. That's pretty embarrassing to admit, considering I work with some major open source contributors on a daily¬†basis. Shortly after that depressing realization, I set a goal for myself: find a way to make at least a few small open source contributions within the next¬†year. As luck would have it, I knew that Turbolinks 5 would be released in early 2016. And one of the goals of the Turbolinks 5 project was to have adapter libraries for all three major platforms‚§¶-‚§¶web, iOS, and¬†Android. So having never done any open source work at all, what did I do? I volunteered to lead the charge and build a brand new Android open source library from scratch.¬†
