Dev of the Week: Troy Miles
- How to Prepare for a Hackathon
- Responsive Design and jQuery Mobile
- Debugging PhoneGap Apps with the Chrome Dev Tools
Thanks for talking to us! What have you been working on lately?
You seem to identify mostly as a mobile developer. What are some of the most enjoyable and least enjoyable things about coding for mobile? Where do you see mobile development going in 2014?
Are there any particular developer tools or resources you couldn't live without?
Do you have a favorite open source project (or projects) that you've contributed to recently?
I am sad to say I haven't contributed recently to any open source projects. I did a blog post about a jQuery Mobile widget, but I haven't officially released it yet.Do you follow any blogs or Twitter feeds that you would recommend to developers?
Besides DZone, I like HTML5Rocks.com, because it rocks and I like Chrome developer tools. On Twitter, I follow a lot of my friends and devs like Paul Irish, Reto Meier, and Addy Osmani.
Did you have a coding first love -- a particular program, gadget, game, or language that set you on the path to life as a developer?
Anything else you'd like to mention?
I code because it is fun. At the end of day, if you are not having fun, you aren't doing it right. There are more options for developers now than there have ever been before. Find something that makes you happy.
