Drinking Caffeine is a frequently updated commentary by Martyn Chamberlin. It analyzes the tools of the software development trade, it critiques related issues deemed important, and it responds in the form of Micros to other pieces published on the Internet. Its writings and commentary are solely its authors and do not represent the views or opinions of anyone else. Its author writes what’s on his mind. Nothing more, and nothing less.

Drinking Caffeine is hosted on GitHub Pages using Jekyll. Posts are written in Atom. A custom script is used for automating post initialization, and a custom build setup is used to deploy changes to GitHub Pages. At the end of each article, including the Micros, is a publish date complete with hour and minute. This date is tailored to the timezone your device is set to.

Your Host

I’m Martyn Chamberlin, a software developer. I have an Associates of Science in Information Technology from Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Northeastern State University.

Special Projects

Most of the code I write is closed source and for others, but here are some special projects that I’ve worked on.

Quillify
Quillify lets you share movies you’ve watched in an interface that’s as drop-dead simple as Instagram’s. It’s still a work in progress. Currently I’m working on a native iOS app for Quillify in Swift.

RSS to SMS
Sometimes you follow a site very closely and want an SMS whenever it publishes something new. I built a tool that does this, and it’s open sourced on GitHub.

Don’t Muck My Markup
Don’t Muck My Markup is a WordPress plugin that lets you disable all auto-generated HTML markup from your posts and pages on a page-by-page basis.
