Coded Geekery

Hi, my name is Roger Stringer. I am a developer, DevOps engineer, writer, foodie, speaker. Coded Geekery is my spot on the interwebs where I can talk, think and share.

I'm also a big camping and hiking enthusiast. When I'm not hanging out with my family or at the computer you can find me camping somewhere in the mountains around the Okanagan valley where I live.

This whole process is often called “continuous integration,” or CI for short. It’s pretty crucial to modern software development and falls under the umbrella of “DevOps” in current developer parlance.

This blog was on Remix for the past six months or so, and I still have other sites on Remix but I decided to move this one back to Next, mostly so I could play with some recent additions in Next with Next 13.

Kent C. Dodds on Full Stack Components

There's this pattern I’ve been using in my apps that has been really helpful to me and I'd like to share it with you all. I’m calling it "full stack components" and it allows me to colocate the code for my UI components with the backend code they need to function. In the same file.
