CCATP #622 — Bart Busschots on PBS 89 of X — Currency Converter Challenge

In this week’s installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart explains his new plan for both the content of PBS and the way the shownotes are created and presented to you. Bart has noticed that because we put a challenge solution and new content into the same show, the solution gets short-changed. That’s a shame because there is so much he can teach by explaining the “whys” behind the design of his solutions.

The new plan is to have the challenge solutions be standalone shows, and then the new content will be standalone shows as well. We’ll be having more time to do our challenges with this new plan as well. I’m excited about this new plan because I’ve enjoyed the extra time we’ve had with our currency converter challenge, allowing us to enhance our solutions and be more creative.

This week’s installment then is a review of why he made certain decisions on how to solve the last Programming By Stealth challenge, which was to add the ability for the user of our currency exchange web app to enter a value to be converted to the different currencies.

Bart is also completely rearchitecting all of his web presence, including his Programming By Stealth show notes. His new online presence will be at his site, bartficier.net and PBS will now be at pbs.bartificer.net. That link is actually to a GitHub page. I know that sounds crazy and Bart is going to tell us more about it, but it will allow him time to be much more creative and spend less time faffing about as a system admin. This is very much a work in progress and we expect a few learning opportunities along the way!

With all that said, you can find the shownotes to this week’s installment at pbs.bartificer.net/…
