Update Your SSH Keys on Github

Honestly, it’s probably good to get into the habit of updating your SSH keys regularly anyway, but in case you needed a reminder:

Back in February, we improved the security audit trail for SSH keys. Soon, organizations will be able to block access for SSH keys that were created prior to those improvements. If your application relies on deploy keys or user keys for repository access, we recommend replacing any keys created before February 24, 2014.

Celebrating CSS

As usual, Jeremy sums up my thoughts perfectly:

Personally, I don’t think there’s any reason to have variables in the CSS language; it’s enough to have them in pre-processing tools. Variables add enormous value for developers, and no value at all for end users.

Making Time for Side Projects

Great piece on how to carve out time while still working & living.

We find the time for those things we place importance on. ‘Finding the time’ often relies upon having a goal that is meaningful and important to you; a goal that is valuable enough to make a priority.

If you feel it really is a priority for you, move forward by fitting it in with the priorities you share with the people in your life.
