My weeks seem to be filled with first times.
For the first time I'm writing coffeescript.
For the first time I'm using AmpersandJS on a personal project.
For the first time I'm learning to use MongoDB.
For the first time I'm experimenting with Node.js streams.
It seems like every moment I am either creating, learning, or using something for the first time. And that's why I'm always tired in school, in case my professors were wondering.
We replaced a custom router/history component of our apps with ampersand-router. It's great having focused tools to pick and choose from to put together just what you need.
I've been getting the opportunity to do a lot of firsts lately. I'm working on a project where I'm building toolsets for front-end developers and designers.
The front-end world is extremely saturated with new, excellent tools. My task is to learn about as many different ones as possible and pick the ones that I think will be the most helpful and easy to understand for future developers and designers. I'm putting a boatload of emphasis on writing clear, concise documentation for everything we use, because all this stuff is hard.
