NovWriMo – Repaying some debt

In the spirit of NaNoWriMo I’m attempting something different for November. While, I’m not going to try to write an entire novel, I am going to try to write every day. Over the past two years I’ve released and maintained a ton of open source and beyond that just wrote a huge amount of code. I’ve talked about some of it at conferences, blogged a little here, twittered a little there, however, a lot of what I’ve learned and what I’ve released remains with little, no, or just plain poor documentation. Over the next 30 days I’m going to try to remedy that, by posting tutorials, updating docs, recording screencasts and just sharing some wisdom daily for some of the projects I’ve been working on. I’m going to try to do something every day, though theres a big block of RubyConf in the middle there, so I hope I can push even then.

Here are some of the things I’m hoping to accomplish (in no particular order):

  • New Sammy.js Site and updated documentation
  • Updated and additional Sammy.js Tutorials
  • A soca screencast and tutorial
  • Updates to jim and writing about the typical workflow

If you have other suggestions or places in some of my libraries that you’d like to see updated, let me know! Keep an eye here for the latest, starting tomorrow.

Yo Quirkey!

You owe us shit – always remember that.

Having said that I congratulate you to your intrinsic motivation to make your great projects even better. Thanks for all your OS work.

More to the point: Maybe it would make sense to integrate your usually great slide decks from various confs into your documentation efforts.
