The JHipster Mini-Book The JHipster Mini-Book is a guide to getting started with hip technologies today: Angular, Bootstrap, and Spring Boot. All of these frameworks are wrapped up in an easy-to-use project called JHipster.

This book shows you how to build an app with JHipster, and guides you through the plethora of tools, techniques and options you can use. Furthermore, it explains the UI and API building blocks so you understand the underpinnings of your great application.

Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

It's gonna be a good week

New Foundation It's gonna be a good week. Yesterday, I gave a demo at my client and they loved it. Shortly after that, my sister (Kalin) flew in to town. She's here until Thursday and I'm taking today, tomorrow and Thursday off. Vacations during the week are very nice. We're babysitting Abbie today, so it should be a good day - especially with a stop at Chipotle for lunch.

In other news, construction on our house started yesterday. Here's a photo of part of the new foundation (for the master bath) getting dug. There's already been one casualty - our sewer line. Luckily, Bob the Builder was able to run to Home Depot and fix it for our house full of guests. We also talked to our new (temporary) landlord on Sunday. We got pretty lucky - our neighbors bought a new house and we're going to finish out their lease. So we're going to live next door to our house while it's being built. Pretty cool, huh?

In even bigger news, Julie submitted her resignation at Qwest last week and today is her last day. She got tired of Abbie getting sick at daycare and more so, she was bored out of her mind. Things will be a bit tight - COBRA is just over $1000/month and it's our only option since she's pregnant. Doh! At least we'll only need it until September/October (crosses fingers for a healthy baby).

Oh man. Keep those updates (and pics) coming. You might just convince me to gut my house sooner than I anticipated. One of my co-workers (also from Montana no less) is also remodelling his house in Littleton. The pressure is building (pun intended).

$1,000/mo. is brutal for COBRA. The downside of being a contractor, huh? Well, when you get that Spring book out hopefully that will pay the insurance and then some. I look forward to reading the book when you complete it.
