This is the future home of the Programming by Stealth series, but for now, bartb.ie/pbs remains the series home page.
Programming by Stealth is an on-going collaborative project between Bart Busschots of Bartificer Creations and Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Podcast. The idea is to sneak up on real programming in small easy steps, using the allure of the web as the carrot to entice people forward.
Each instalment consists an article written by Bart, and an accompanying episode of Allison’s Chit Chat Across the Pond podcast where Bart and Allison cover the same material in a conversational form. Allison’s role is to play the proverbial everyman and pepper Bart with questions to help clarify the material.
The series is intended to be ever-green, but if you play along in real-time you can join the community in the NosillaCast Slack. The challenges set in the series are definitely more fun in real-time.
Looking for something in an instalment of Programming By Stealth? Check out the PBS Index, created by listener Dorothy. You can find the PBS Index at bartb.ie/pbsindex.
For now, this is still a very incomplete list of instalments.
- PBS 89 — Currency Converter Challenge
- PBS 92 — Currency Grid Challenge
You’ll find the notes for the other instalments at bartb.ie/pbs.
- Bart occasionally makes blog posts related to the series, but not strictly a part of it. You’ll find those on bartb.ie under the programming-by-stealth-tidbit tag.
- A blog post by Allison Sheridan explaining how she added support for currencies with different numbers of decimal places to her sample solution to PBS 88: When Currency Rate Decimals Go Wrong — www.podfeet.com/…
