git index.lock File exists when I try to commit (via: Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/12/29

I had this occur a few times over the last couple of weeks.

The solution is to delete the index.lock file, but I’m not sure if more steps are needed to verify repository content.

Extreme Programming, a Reflection (via: 8th Light)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/12/29

Thanks Uncle Bob Martin for posting this.

I’ve been trying (with increasing success: it takes time to get this all right) to practice XP (through various name changes) as much and wide as possible since almost 14 years, and only the last few years it is starting to be common practice for many more people.

take a moment to reflect back on 1999. A time when Kent Beck wrote a ground-breaking book. A book that changed everything. Look back and remember: Extreme Programming; and recognize it as the core of what we, today, simply think of as:

Good Software Practice.

Prey lets you keep track of your laptop, phone and tablet whenever missing, whether you\’re in town or abroad. Open source, proven software with hundreds of documented recoveries all around the world.
