Scala, Maven, Eclipse, and ScalaTest

Now reporting live from beautiful downtown Broomfield, Colorado, I spent a few hours yesterday getting Scala, Maven, Eclipse, and ScalaTest working together. After getting everything working, I thought I'd share my notes here.

Drupal programming jobs in Boulder, Colorado

I just moved to the Boulder, Colorado area, and was curious about how many people in the area use Drupal. One way to find this out is to look for Drupal programming jobs in the area, so I took a look at those, and here are the results of those searches.

Scala programming in Colorado

I just moved to the Boulder, Colorado area, and as I've been learning the Scala programming language, I thought I'd take a look around at what sort of Scala jobs and programmers might be in the area.

Boulder, Colorado custom programming services

As Valley Programming springs to life here in the Boulder, Colorado area, I (Alvin Alexander) thought I would share some of my computer programming experiences.

While you can see many of the websites I've developed by looking at my web design portfolio, my actual degree is in Aerospace Engineering, and I've worked on many, many other software and computer programming projects in my career, including:

Moved to Colorado (Boulder, Louisville area)

Just a quick note here that I, Alvin Alexander, and my company, Valley Programming, have just moved to the Boulder, Colorado area. I actually live in Broomfield, Colorado, which is ten miles from Boulder, and right next to other cities like Louisville and Lafayette.

Mac Ruby as an AppleScript and Objective C replacement

Over the last few weeks I've been digging into Ruby programming on the Mac, specifically looking at ways to (a) use Ruby instead of AppleScript, and (b) use Ruby to create 'native' Mac OS X applications. Here's some information on what I've found.

Arduino programming project

During the last few weeks I've gone down a very different road with my computer programming business here in Alaska's Mat-Su Valley. Thanks to my sisters, I'm currently programming something called an "Arduino board", which is essentially a small, inexpensive computer system you can wire together and then program.

Though it's small and inexpensive, the Arduino is an entire computer system, and with a breadboard and a huge selection of sensors and other electronics you can connect to the main processor, you can build many, many types of custom computer systems with an Arduino.

Berries at Hatcher Pass, Alaska

Totally unrelated to computer programming, but completely related to living in Alaska, I went up to Hatcher Pass today for a long hike. Some friends mentioned that berry-picking at Hatcher Pass is something of a tradition this time of year, so I did my best to find some fresh berries.

Linux find exec command examples

I just wrote about how to use the Linux find command to find files by modification date, and I thought I'd follow that tutorial up with a quick example of how to find one or more files and then execute a command on those files. You do this with the Unix/Linux find command and the very powerful exec option.

Linux find command - find files modified recently

I don't write about Unix and Linux very much on this website, but when I just used a Linux find command to find files that had been modified in the last seven days, a friend said I should write a quick blog post about it.

Finding a file that has been modified in X days

Here's a simple Linux find command that shows how to find a file or directory that has been modified in the last seven days:
