If you want to learn, teach. Marcus Tullius Cicero

I am Marcelo Canina, a web entrepreneur from Uruguay.

Story

I enjoy all aspects of designing a web application, from web server administration, to design, code and front end designing of apps.

When in the process of creating a new project, I found myself referring often to the same documentation Ive read relatively long time ago and struggling to remember the basic aspects of each technology, trying to find some old Stack Overflows question I know I have read in the past that would be helpful in what I am doing now.

Main problem was that I often ended up reading different sources for same concepts, wasting time and not helpful to remember them in the future.

This website started as a set of docs where I started centralizing several notes about the urls and concepts I found helpful enough to have, then I started to write them publicly as a section in my personal website where I used to collect my own notes about tech topics to have them as a quick reference for future projects.

Learning is a personal experience where you expand your knowledge based on what you knew before, I highly encourage any developer to start writing down their own notes while coding, not simply relying in third party documentation, this is what I found most helpful to learn more and consolidating new concepts.

Website goals

This website aims to:

  • Act as a centralized place to have as reference and lookup stuff quickly while developing.

  • Have a uniform, clear way of having documentation for several technologies instead of depending on each different documentation system and style.

  • Sharing experience and knowledge in a clear, concise way.

  • Practicing English, my mother tongue is Spanish so any comments about any error in spelling is more than welcome.

Colophon

The website is powered by Jekyll, and its code is freely available at Github pages.

Each category has all the sub-posts that belong to that category, this is what I found more helpful when dealing with a specific technology so I can look up fast any concept or special syntax belonging to a particular language.

Conventions

  • tags should be in plural form.
