100 Days of Code: Paper Auth

OverviewI gave up life as a full time coder about 9 years ago to pursue IT leadership positions. For context, at the time I made the switch my life revolved around IBM's 4690OS and SCO.

When I relaunched Beer and Coding earlier this year, my plan was to go full on Tabula rasa. In support of this, I purged all of my existing content, dating way back to 2009. No backup, no archive, no nothing. Clean slate.Whi

A few years ago, I was a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, recent Help Scout convert, gobbling up the treasure trove of customer support information on their blog. I came across the article, "What's Your Support Stack?" by Emily Tr

I used to say that my goal was to run my IT department like a Starbucks. And by that I wasn't suggesting that I wanted to extract as much profit as possible out of my customers on the back of an underpaid workforce and mediocre product. I meant that I wanted my IT department to run the way a Starbucks cafe operates.

My family took a short trip up to Seattle at the beginning of last week. This was the first time we have traveled, outside of camping or day trips since my partner was diagnosed with celiac disease earlier this year.

I'm going to start by correcting a bit of revisionist history I expounded in my first post. About a third of the way in, I made the comment, "Shortly after EBW wrapped up, so did the blog." It turns out that wasn't exactly correct. Even with a mind as sharp and nimble as mine (editor's note: good place to insert somethin

The three week drought of posts should indicate that I have been up to other extremely important things, namely enjoying getting to know my new son Archer. But it felt like time to spend a few minutes with my other, much more neglected child. So, what’s new with beer in Eugene? So much I’ll [...]

You would think that living in Eugene, we could get our fill of hoppy beers any day of the week. Yet, there is still something magical about the word ‘IPA’ that brings out the crowds, tongues begging for liquid lupulin. And this weekend, you can find those crowds at the

So, I knew this whole parenting thing was going to impact my craft beer imbibing. What I didn’t realize was that the activity that would take the biggest hit would be my time on the ol’ blog. It’s one thing to find time to enjoy a beer, but getting the hour or two that [...]

Man, it feels nice to have my Christmas shopping done early for once. With the baby being a big, late-December question mark, my wife and I had everything bought and wrapped weeks ago. In fact, I was done so early that I almost forgot to post my annual gift guide. So, in the spirit [...]

Okay, let’s see if I can get this one wrapped up tonight. After enjoying Redhook’s Down Under Stout with a couple friends, we opened a bottle of Ninkasi’s Imperiale Stout that had been sitting in my refrigerator for much too long. Sampling these two beers back-to-back was a great way to appreciate just
