The Ugly Side of Programming

Building an App from Zero

For the past 3 months I've been hard at work trying to make a new social networking app. The app is very straight forward, it is a platform where you can notify your friends when you are free to do something. Although there are existing apps in the marketplace, they all are lacking the simplicity or completeness of what we expect from . . .

Going Beyond the Keyboard

Learning New Skills

A solar flare jutting from the Sun just took down the internet around the world. My house is dark. Partly because my "smart" light bulbs can no longer connect to the internet. All forms of wireless radio communication on the planet seem to be down. Luckily the power is still up, so I dug out the old fluorescent light bulbs from the . . .

Finding Your Lost Self

Part 1

This year has been quite a mix for me, but then again, I could say that about my past couple of years. However, this year is very special because I learned so much from it! Perhaps this post is overdue, but I think I really need to say what I've learned. Somehow, I have an interesting but relatable story to tell.

Hello Silvrback.

Blogger's outdated interface have allowed me to look for a new platform to blog on. I haven't been very active lately, but I think that I've been meeting so many people lately and that I have had so many new ideas that somehow it makes sense that I blog again. I'm going to give silvrback a shot and see how it works out. I . . .
