I wrote a quick utility awhile ago to generate large XML sitemaps from a database. There are many sitemap generating tools out there, such as xml-sitemaps.com which are now even made to be web tools (you don’t even have to download anything). The problem with this is that these tools are usual

Stop demanding that the UI be completely separated from logic. Without the use of significantly robust frameworks I simply do not think that this is achievable.

HTML-based emails are one of those evil things in the life of a web-developer that we would all rather never have to do... but alas, it needs to be done. One can do this in a variety of ways, but it is fairly common to use modern web-development technologies to generate the actual email bodies ove

My name is Leland Richardson. I love learning. At the time of writing this I am 23 years old and live in Houston, TX. I was born in West Palm Beach, Florida, grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, and went to school in Houston, Texas at Rice University.
 
At Rice I received two degrees: one in Physics and one in Mathematics. I love both. I never received any formal education on Computer Science, however, you will find that most of this blog will be about programming and web development. Nevertheless, I think being a good programmer is about being good at learning, and thinking logically about how to solve problems - of which I think my educational background has more than covered.
 
Since high-school, I had found that the easiest way to make money was by programming. Programming started off as a hobby and small interest, and slowly grew into a passion.
 
I have recently started working on a new startup here in Houston, TX. I wont bore you with the details of that just yet, but I am very excited about it and I think we can do big things. We plan to launch our project this year at SXSW 2013. What I will say for now, is that we would like to create a company of talented software developers who are similarly ambitious and want to create cool stuff (and have fun doing it).
