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. Bookmark this podcast today!

The Gift Guide 2021

Introduction

Are your items stuck offshore at Long Beach due to supply chain issues? If so, I hope to spark joy and not junk into your life this holiday season with these virtual gifts. It’s my hope that these offerings have an everlasting impact for you at some point in your professional careers.



Highlighted Topics

Hey everyone. Here are some free resources I’ve found to be helpful in my own personal and professional journey. I hope you can find some hidden gems from what’s being offered here.

TriNet.com

Do you have a startup? Alternatively, do you already have a startup and need to build out your team on a more comprehensive level? Not sure where to begin? Let me introduce you to Gabe Balanag and his team from TriNet. They’re geared as a full-service HR solution providing access to premium benefits, HR expertise, risk mitigation, payroll services and more. For more details on that, simply click here to learn more!

Hired.com

Are you a Software Engineer, Product Manager, Data Scientist, or Designer looking for your next dream opportunity? Then Hired might be your next play. Create your free profile and let companies apply to interview you (with salary details upfront). Outside of LinkedIn and networking in general, I’ve found this platform to be extremely helpful when setting myself up for that next step!

Digit.co

Save money and pay off debt, all without thinking about it. Without getting into the weeds of my own struggles, I’ll gladly say that the Great Recession forever left an impact on me. On that note alone, it’s been my mission to surround myself with the right tools that could help my financial base. I adopted into Digit in early 2019 and it’s probably the most meaningful tool I use…and yes…without even thinking about it. Start here and try Digit free for 30 days.

Coinbase.com

Speaking of a financial base, let’s talk crypto. I’m by no means an expert on crypto but I can’t ignore its potential in general as a solution outside of fiat currency. That said, I’ve gone head first into Coinbase as my preferred platform that makes it easy to buy, sell, and store cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and more. Get your first $10 in Bitcoin from me by starting here.

ReMarkable.com

Word of mouth led me to this product and it is hands down the best electronic item I’ve purchased since pivoting from Blackberries/Nokias/Samsungs to an iPhone 3GS. Since I like to scribble, I thought the next best thing to do for optimizing my chicken scratch was through ReMarkable. Replace your notebooks and printed documents with the only tablet that feels like paper. Get a $40 discount when you purchase a reMarkable 2. Shop now with this link!

Removing Gender from HTML Forms

Introduction

Meet Tiffany, Senior Product Designer at AliveCor Inc. and an old coworker/friend in a previous startup life! Today we’ll be going head first into the idea of gender in the modern day world and how that may redefine how we move forward building out our digital experiences.



Highlighted Topics

“Neither end of the [male/female] spectrum is a suitable way of expressing the gender I am,” Wilson says. “Sometimes I feel ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’ at the same time, and other times I reject the two terms entirely.”

BBC – Beyond ‘he’ and ‘she’: The rise of non-binary pronouns

Conclusion

We’ll stew on this for a moment and follow up at a later date. For now, feel free to outreach with Tiffany directly on LinkedIn, buy a print from her new store and enjoy the gallery on Instagram. Also, the article she mentions regarding sex and gender and its impact on health research can be found here.

Dear Gen Z

Dear Gen Z,

I hope this voicemail finds you well. Hey look…the reason why I’m calling today is because I wanted to speak to those of you who have logged off from this oversaturated tech world. I’m inspired by an article from The Guardian, which sheds light on a growing trend of young people who have consciously abandoned social media. 

I’m looking to simply understand. I’d like to understand what the positives are for saying sayonara to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok. I could easily come up with reasons why I’d abandon it. Yes, I’ve thought about it multiple times and at minimum I’ve already removed most social media apps from my phone. Thanks Digital Minimalism. And as a young father squinting at the ingredients list of these digital jelly beans, it extends my curiosity. Furthermore, I’m looking to forecast alongside you on what the world may look like as we move forward with our pocket-sized super computers.

Let it be known that this channel is a safe space, not dependent on any social media metric such as likes, follows or comments. It is very much dependent on you and your sincerity throughout. So if you have a few minutes, and would like to go on the record to speak of a topic which may be corollary to mental health, cyber bullying, privacy and more, please don’t hesitate to give me a buzz.

Thanks and Aloha.
