For the longest time I have grown as a developer knowing about all these amazing conferences and community events for developers happening all over the world, and to this day I still have no attended a single one.

I don’t have to tell you every reason why commenting code is important. Most of us know already. However, if you’re anything like me, it can be easy to forget about these benefits when you’re in the middle of writing your code.

This blog certainly isn’t updated as often as I would like. Even when it is, the posts are minimal, I don’t use a lot of other functionality outside of categories and pagination.
