A list of questions you could ask while interviewing
View interview-questions.md

A lot of these are outright stolen from Edward O'Campo-Gooding's list of questions. I really like his list.

I'm having some trouble paring this down to a manageable list of questions -- I realistically want to know all of these things before starting to work at a company, but it's a lot to ask all at once. My current game plan is to pick 6 before an interview and ask those.

I'd love comments and suggestions about any of these.

I've found questions like "do you have smart people? Can I learn a lot at your company?" to be basically totally useless -- everybody will say "yeah, definitely!" and it's hard to learn anything from them. So I'm trying to make all of these questions pretty concrete -- if a team doesn't have an issue tracker, they don't have an issue tracker.

I'm also mostly not asking about principles, but the way things are -- not "do you think code review is important?", but "Does all code get reviewed?".

Serving Django apps behind SSL with Nginx
View Serving Django apps behind SSL with Nginx.md

Configuring Nginx to serve SSL content is straight forward, once you have your certificate and key ready:

server { 
    listen 443 default ssl;
    root /path/to/source;
    server_name mydomain;

    ssl_certificate      /path/to/cert;
    ssl_certificate_key  /path/to/key;

Big list of http static server one-liners
View web-servers.md

Each of these commands will run an ad hoc http static server in your current (or specified) directory, available at http://localhost:8000. Use this power wisely.

""" Convert values between RGB hex codes and xterm-256 color codes.
Nice long listing of all 256 colors and their codes. Useful for
developing console color themes, or even script output schemes.
