One of my favorite practice exercises from my book Exercises for Programmers is the “Who's In Space?” problem: Did you know you can find out exactly who’s in space right now? The Open Notify API provides that information. Visit http://api.open-notify.org/astros.json to see not only how many people are currently in space but also their names and which spacecraft they’re on. Create a program that pulls in this data and displays the information from this API in a tabular format.

I was working on my Hugo book and I was working through some modifications to some of the companion files. I wanted to view several files to ensure they had the content they needed. I do all my writing and other work in the Vim text editor, and I know I can open multiple files by specifying them on the command line, like this: $ vim file1.md file2.md I wanted to open up all the files in my project called about.
I've been working on a new tune for a few months, and today I finally had the time to finish it off. It's got a nice mix of crunchy guitar and classic 303 sounds mixed in with more heavy drums and synths. Happy with how this turned out. Give a listen!
