One of the most fascinating pieces I’ve read about web development in recent memory. For reasons1 unrelated to the performance benefits cited in this article, I’d choose Clojure if I were to learn any new language today2.


  1. Being a functional language, compiling to JavaScript, and being unlike any language I’ve ever used before. 

  2. Definitely can’t justify that as I still haven’t learned AutoLayout or ReactiveCocoa

10 Push-up Milestones and Challenges

10 Push-up Milestones and Challenges

Here is a progression that should keep anyone busy for a couple of years.

  1. Fifty honest basic push-ups
  2. Ten handstand push-ups
  3. 100 honest basic push-ups
  4. Fifteen handstand push-ups
  5. Tabata interval basic push-ups with 20 reps in each of 8 intervals
  6. One handstand push-up without use of wall
  7. Ten handstand push-ups without use of wall
  8. Fifteen handstand push-ups without use of wall
  9. Twenty handstand push-ups without use of wall
  10. One handstand push-up without use of wall and on fingertips

Stories like this warm my heart. The ability to code and work with technology is extremely empowering. I hope to one day teach others how to code and help those coming out of poverty.
