Updating Service Worker cache version using Jekyll
I’ve been diving deep into Service Workers lately. There are a lot of great resources, and others sharing their stories and work such as Jeremy Keith and Lyza Danger Gardner have proved invaluable. One issue that has continually bothered me is the manual updating of the cache version every time I modify my site. So after a little digging, I’ve found a very simple way to update my Service Worker version number whenever I update this site.
It’s been quite a while since I originally listed my podcast listening lineup, and a lot has changed since then.

Using GitHub Education to Teach Web Development
This past Spring I once again taught an Into to Web Development class at the University of Notre Dame. While the class structure didn’t change too much other than updating for the various changes in web development that occured over the past 1.5 years, the way I had students turn in assignments changed quite a bit.
This month I attended my fifth Breaking Development Conference. BDConf is a boutique multi-location conference about the mobile web. It is a gathering of passionate, forward thinking web professionals looking to improve their mobile and Responsive Design skills and to interact with industry leaders in the areas of mobile design and User Experience.
