I made this podcast in hopes of reaching out to others within the web development field—to let you know that I’m in the trenches with you when it comes to code. I get excited about how our profession moves forward rapidly but at the same time I’d be lying if I said I’ve never been confused about it as well. That said, I felt compelled to process my thoughts through audio. I hope you enjoy these segments and please feel free to provide feedback.

The Loaded Question

Introduction

What’s up everyone and welcome back to AllWebSD. As 2021 unpacks itself the recruiting season is once again in full swing. And as companies unleash their budgets for their next round of hires its a no-brainer that you may get a call. Sometimes its a tech recruiter gauging your interest. But every now and again you might get called because someone marked you as a professional reference.

And that’s what leads me into tonight’s topic.

You see, that very much happened just a few hours ago and one question in particular felt like an awkward one to answer.

The Loaded Question

What are some of his/her weaknesses?

– Hiring Manager

Dear Recruiters

What can I say? Obviously, if someone inks me in as a professional reference, I intend on outlining the brightest attributes about this person. I’m going to deliver, in real-time, a series of bullet points as to why this person is more than qualified for the role on hand. I’m not placed on a short-list to bad mouth my peer. I was called to spotlight what could help you make a more informed decision.

That said, I’m not foolish on the inquiry either. I understand that to even get this far into the conversation, my peer must have done well enough to make it to that next step.

But what gives? I’m hard-pressed to find something sensical with this specific question. What does a question like this serve? Where would you like me to begin? How does my answer play into the company’s philosophy? Better yet, how does my answer play into the Hiring Manager’s psychology?

Dear Listeners

This is definitely food for thought. And I have to throw it out there into the universe and ask…how on Earth do you answer the loaded question? And is honesty an effective solution which can surpass the inherent negative bias?

Think about it and let me know!

Vue Components in 5 Steps or Less

What’s up everyone and welcome to Season 4, Episode 2. I guess this episode is more of a heads up in that, I’ve been revisiting VueJS. And with version 3 recently released, its’ once again become a premier option in JavaScript frameworks. I’ve noticed more so that Vue and React’s community continue to push each other’s frameworks into the next level, whereas Angular is definitely blazing its own unique path.

That said, I wanted to brush up quickly but I also didn’t want to spend any more money on subscriptions.

Hence, when I stumbled onto Vue School, I was very excited to see that they had an abundance of free courses designed for all levels. I encourage you to check them out at vueschool.io if you have a moment. I do not have an affiliation with them. This is simply a courtesy.

On my behalf I went ahead and did some of their tutorials – all of which were straightforward and under an hour to complete. It was well worth it!

Feel free to check out 2 articles I wrote with source code and demo attached regarding Vue components. The goal here was to get a grasp of reusable components and implement them in 5 steps or less.

Cheers and happy coding!

Open Mat Series Invitational

Hey guys and welcome to the newest episode of AllWebSD. Where I put my city’s digital savants on the forefront, talk tech and find the proper moments of rest before burnout becomes a reality.

Hmmm…

My city’s digital savants. Let’s go there.

Today I’m hungry. And I’m hungry to be once again inspired…by YOU. Specifically, the you that right now in this very moment decided to undertake such an arduous specialization inside of software development. Recent graduates, career pivots  and the like, this round of dialogue is dedicated to you.

Let’s talk. Let’s break bread. Let’s train.

In my Jiu Jitsu school my Professor would call this an Open Mat. So let’s take this opportunity to be just that. A moment of time where we train together and pick each other’s brains on why we made this choice. Where we were, where we are and where we’d like to go with the decision already made.

You’ve gone all-in trusting your instincts and inner wisdom to be on this path and I’d like to be part of that journey, even if for a few short minutes. We can go here, we can go there and we can talk about any uncertainty you have along the way. 

Now…are you hesitant and a bit camera shy? That’s okay. It’s audio only. I’m opening the mat for up to 5 spots, first come, first served.

On a final note, I’d like you to take this chance and view it from a different perspective. A time capsule-like approach or a message in a bottle, if you will. A note you can look back on fondly down the line as a way to really gain some insight about yourself direct from no-one else…but YOU.

Be easy, take care and I’ll talk to you again in the new year.

Aloha, San Diego. 🤙🏾
