Command and Conquer

Make the command line do your bidding

Posted by Jon on January 15, 2015
The command line is powerful way to get things done, to automate things and to make your life as a developer easier.

Recently I had the pleasure of giving a talk at the Dayton Web Developers user group. Big thanks to Nathan Rambeck and Allen May for organizing this awesome group and having me as a guest speaker. They meet monthly and cover a wide variety of topics. Be sure to check them out!

This month’s topic of discussion was the command line, and why it should be an essential part of every developer’s workflow. I shared tips and tools to increase productivity and (hopefully) make life easier.

I’ll be doing a series of posts to highlight some of the key discussion points. The first post is up, check it out!

After that, head on over to GitHub to take a look at the presentation notes, and if you’re a fan of Simpsons gifs (you know you are), have a look at the slides as well.
