Welcome back to The Renegade Coder. It’s probably been awhile since I’ve put out any meaningful content, but that’s because I’m fairly busy. Over the last few months, I’ve been working like crazy to get some things done behind the scenes. Not all of these things directly impact The Renegade Coder, but they’re going toward making a better life for myself. I suspect by this time next year that I should be a much more relaxed person. For now though, I need some rest and relaxation.
Table of Contents
As you can probably tell, Morgan and I are still slowly going through and updating images. The latest changes happened to the data structures lessons. I think after that I’m going to start working on the blogs. The updates will be last!
Irma and Atlanta
If you’ve been under a rock for the last couple of weeks, then you’ve probably missed this insane series of hurricanes that popped up the last couple days. Just a couple of weeks ago, Harvey made landfall in Texas. Around the same time, Irma started brewing up in the Atlantic. By the time Irma made landfall, two more hurricanes sprang up: Katia and Jose.
Needless to say, I wasn’t expecting to deal with any hurricanes. After all, Atlanta is too high up in the state to actually deal with hurricanes. Fortunately, Irma didn’t really bring much more than rain and some wind. We’re more than fine which is great news! 🙂
Song of the Week
I had an easy pick this week: Four Year Strong’s “It Must Really Suck to Be Four Year Strong Right Now.” No, not the classic. This one comes of their latest record: “Some of You Will Like This Some of You Won’t.”
No posts. Just regular plugin changes.

Coming Soon to The Renegade Coder!
Not much! Just looking to do some easy site updates, and maybe I’ll get excited and make a post. I have two blog posts in the works. The first one is about the iPhone and the second is about money management. Definitely not the most tech oriented topics. That’s why they’re going in the blog.
For now, expect me to spend some time on rest and relaxation.
Recently, I was giving a lecture about Java's "common" methods (i.e., all of the methods of Object), and I had epiphany about how Java only has toString() while Python has str() and repr(). So, it...
Magic numbers are numerical constants that have no clear meaning in the code and therefore make code harder to read. Anything that makes code harder to read is something we can use to obfuscate our...
