Rob Conery Talks OpenID and More
Rob Conery tells us why OpenID is a nightmare, and why he's stopped using it. Oh yeah, he's also given up Twitter. We also talked about the mind/body connection and the challenges of working at home. Also: whale watching, home brewing, music, barbeque, wine, and following your bliss.
Rob Conery helps developers of all sorts learn what's new with technology. He has been working in the technology field full time since 1998 as a DBA and then a web developer. Rob's original focus was the Microsoft ASP.NET stack, building tools like Subsonic and the first Micro-ORM: Massive. He also authored MassiveJS, a dedicated PostgreSQL data access tool for Node which he ported to Elixir and named it Moebius. Rob is also the author of The Imposter's Handbook, which is a compendium of skills and concepts that you need to know as a self-taught programmer. Things like Complexity Theory (P vs NP), Big-O notation, Database theory, Algorithms and more.
