Origin Stories #23 - Freddie Ohen - iOS Dev @ Scribd
In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with Freddie Ohen, iOS developer at Scribd. We get to hear how he got his start by taking the free Harvard online CS course, which led him down the path of a developer bootcamp. After the bootcamp he struggled about a year before he found his first iOS developer job. It's a great story and illustrates the power of sticking with it and completely immersing yourself in development to get that job. Hope you enjoy! Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry. We discuss how they first became interested in code, what resources they used to learn, how they got their first job and much more.

Origin Stories #20 - Chris Conner - iOS Engineer @ VRBO
In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with long-time community member and fellow iOS Engineer, Chris Conner.

What I'm Working On #20 - Communication: Vital Developer Skill
"What I'm Working On" is a weekly show where I give a quick recap of what I worked on at my day job as an iOS developer at a small startup in Silicon Valley. I hope this give some insight into what it's like to work for a small startup as the sole iOS developer.  In this episode I talk about how great communication might just be the most valuable skill a developer can have. I run through 3 different scenarios that happened this week where great communication was essential. I think this episode is extremely valuable to up and coming developers. If this is your first What I'm Working On episode, be sure to check out the introduction episode for context as to what the Aluna app does.

Origin Stories #14 - Jane Chung - iOS @ Calm
In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with Jane Chung, iOS Engineer @ Calm. This was a really fun episode because I've known Jane for a long time now, as she was my partner throughout the iOS Development bootcamp we did back in 2015. It was fun to look back on the app we built together during that bootcamp. Jane then moved on to be one of the fist full-time mobile engineers at Coinbase where she converted the app from Objective-C to Swift and rode the crazy crypto wave of 2017 all the way to Coinbase being the #1 app in the App Store for a period of time. Lots of war stories there... After leaving the crypto space, Jane is getting ready to embark on her next chapter as an iOS Engineer at Calm. Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry. We discuss how they first became interested in code, what resources they used to learn, how they got their first job and much more.

The First Month - FINALE - Sage advice for Jr. Devs
Back in January of 2019 I put out a video (link below) asking people who had never had an iOS Developer job to apply for a new position at the startup I'm work at, Aluna. When I started my career someone took a chance on me when I wasn't quite ready, and it launched my career. I wanted to do the same for someone else.  That someone is Chris and we sit down and recap his third week on the job as a Jr. iOS Developer. We talk about his impressions of startup life in San Francisco, what he worked on this week, as well as some thoughts on how having mentorship has drastically increased his skills in just a few short weeks.

Origin Stories #13 - Jazbo - iOS @ Glowforge
In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with Jazbo, iOS Engineer at a 3D Laser Printer company called Glowforge. I was thrilled to finally get to sit down with Jazbo and hear his story. It was fascinating to hear how he grew up in Jamaica and never touched a computer until he was a teenager. After college he decided he wanted to learn software engineering and started watching videos online, which led to him joining the developer community on twitter. Through this network, he was able to land his job at Glowforge. Be sure to stick around for the end of the episode where we have a great discussion about how people have different hurdles in their path to becoming a software developer. Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry.

Origin Stories #12 - Kaya Thomas - iOS @ Calm
In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with Kaya Thomas, iOS Engineer at the mindfulness app, Calm. I got to meet Kaya in person a few weeks ago when we both gave talks at iOSCon 2019 in London. In this story we get to hear about how Kaya discovered coding while editing MySpace pages back in the day, which led to her trying out a intro to programming class in college. Her amazing networking led to some key internships at Intuit and Apple, and she ultimately landed her first iOS developer job at Slack here in San Francisco. Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry. We discuss how they first became interested in code, what resources they used to learn, how they got their first job and much more.

The First Month - Part 2 - Ass Whippins and Happy Hours
Back in January of 2019 I put out a video (link below) asking people who had never had an iOS Developer job to apply for a new position at the startup I'm work at, Aluna. When I started my career someone took a chance on me when I wasn't quite ready, and it launched my career. I wanted to do the same for someone else.  That someone is Chris and we sit down and recap his second week on the job as a Jr. iOS Developer. We talk about the code problems Chris faced, what he needs to work on, moving to our new office and how he sucks as Street Fighter II 😜.
