I know for most men sports is a big part of their life and most conversations revolve around what is happening in the world of baseball, football, soccer, basketball, golf etc. Sports however just don’t seem to interest me and never have done. There have been certain times where I feel alienated from other guys and our culture in general because sport just means nothing to me.

This may sound crazy, but it happened; I sat at my computer coding for five days without moving apart from going to the bathroom and grabbing some food. A client that I often work for wanted a complicated mobile app created for iOS that was then to be developed into a cross-platform app, and he needed it done fast.

Why All Coders Should Wear A Tactical Watch

why a tactical watch helps my coding skills

If you’ve been reading my early blog posts then you are probably surprised with the title of this post (I would be too). I’ve talk about how I’ve coded for five nights straight, as well as why coding keeps me stuck to the couch (not getting enough exercise).
