• How I did on my 2015 Goals

    As 2015 draws to a close, I want to share the progress that I made in the last year. This is the first year that I’ve been able to focus enough on my goals to actually remember them at the end of the year.

  • How to set up a node.js production server

    One of the biggest problems I had when learning node was figuring out how to get a production server up and running. Coming from a PHP background, I was used to just installing a LAMP stack on an Ubuntu server and then uploading PHP files to the directory specified in Apache.

  • My Goals for 2015

    While I was serving as a missionary in Chile, I worked every day with goals.
