Lately, my career has been a series of me moving from mentor to mentee. Whenever I get a chance to host a live stream with an open source maintainer or sit in on an OpenJS foundation meeting, I hope to walk away with the knowledge to improve my experiences and others’ experiences. When I go live on stream on Tuesday and Fridays to code, I welcome questions from chatters asking which React framework is worth learning or whether the Jamstack has value past the next few years.
I am addicted to knowledge and knowledge sharing. This is why I walked away from a recent Clubhouse session on GitHub Actions pumped at the possibility of networking with fellow developers despite still being in the middle of a pandemic.
In the next few weeks, I will be setting up some conversations to chat with developers, and it will most likely happen on the Open Sauced Discord. If you are not already part of the Open Sauced meetup group, go ahead and sign up for notifications on when future conversations will happen.
I am hooked on this new stack and its a combination of RedwoodJS and Supabase. After chatting with Anthony Campolo 2 weeks ago, I was introduced to the simplicity of the redwood cli. This week I was introduced to the simplicity of connecting a production-ready database with authentication.
In the next coming weeks, I will be working on the next version of Open Sauced. This version will include recommendations for projects to contribute to. Be sure to watch the open-sauced/flava-flav (taking name recommendations).
Here are more of my thoughts recently published podcasts.
In my first year at Netlify, I worked on building out the UI and frontend dashboard. A portion of that UI was shipped from my laptop in a camping chair. Having dual monitors and RGB lights does not make you a developer; What makes you a developer is your code. I am focusing on getting better at writing code with what you have before you drop $500+ on a monitor.
After a series of introductions, I made the jump into Angel Investing. I have been involved in developer tools startups for the past seven years as an engineer, advisor, and user. Starting this year, I added the label investor.
