I have been really enjoying, in between jobs, reading and studying all the new stuff. AngularJS, MongoDB. It can be frustrating at times as the writing in these tutorials is so dry and dull it makes the California drought look like a flood. The tutorial work by Christopher Buecheler is outstanding. Clear and bullet-proof explanations that keep you moving along. I had already gotten pretty far with node but what a great tutorial. There is also a part two which is also very good.

OK! So now we’ve got our router routing us to our view, which we are viewing. Let’s do some modeling. I’ll give you a moment if you need to fix your hair or makeup.

Hilarious!

Writing with a sense of humour is often in short supply in tech tutorials. The combination of really great steps with a little wit goes a long way.
