Atom is a sleek text editor/coding application with syntax highlighting for Windows, Mac and Linux, and by coupling it with Code::Stats coders can "level up" as they program, making those dull coding sessions just a little more exciting.

Sorry for the late post. I've been deathly sick with this headcold, and to be honest the combination of sinus congestion + multiple doses of DayQuil has made it tough to focus on any one task :) But here I am with this week's exciting episode where we explore how awesome a text editor can really be!

That's right. A text editor.

But this one's different because it is "hackable" and one of those hacks lets us level up our "game" by giving us XP (experience points) every time we code!

Jeff and Sasha joined me, and after the show they had an ... interesting debate about how creepy AI girlfriends are. You can see that on Backstage Pass here.

Hope you enjoy the show. Merry Christmas, and we'll see you again next week!
