And it's a blog post on medium dot com by shivani verma and it's from may the ten best visual studio code extensions old. It's pretty recent. Asfaw subjective yeah. It is subjective. But i thought that You know we'd peruse these things because they are cool. Yeah for sure it may not be everybody's topped him. But i'm sure they are pretty awesome. Live share number one one of my favorites in the list. It allows share your code actively with another person's. Vs code see. You can see each other's code whom you want to share it with and debugging together that's pretty awesome and then there's live server. It sounds the same as the live share extension but completely different from it. it's a must for web developers just like me helped me save countless hours improve my efficiency In there's links there to bookmark. Imagine you're writing thousands of lines of code and you make a mistake or there's a function not working correctly nested inside of other functions. Bookmark allows you to bookmark. Your functions classes and use it to quickly navigate through your file. I use comments like to do nice Vs code icons adds little cute icons to your files after this. You'll start loving your vs code gallons. Now this is. This sounds cool. And i didn't know about this With gatland so you can see who. Why and how. The code has changed. I recommend everyone get this extension. They all had positive feedback about it. It is highly customizable and you can set it up. According to you in visual studio we have you know Get history right so you can make it all the check ins right in visual studio but this is a cool little you know lens yeah it.

"His in vancouver washington and man. That's i don't know what to say. We were just talking to dan. Wat lean an hour ago but it seemed like last week for you dear less records. It was one day. And you've gotten through your hurricane. And i am suffering in the terrible sunny days of being on the ocean on the west coast of canada. And that's just terrible. Oh i got a story for. Actually i got a story of hacking and story is in You can see it at the dot net show dot com. Actually show this. I have this mixer then. I'm by play in a band. And we used to have big mixing boards with a lot of failures and all that stuff for sound guys. And whatever but i got a headless mixer. So it's a thirty two channel box to black box. It's got thirty two microphone inputs and it's got sixteen headphone outputs each with their individual mixes. That can be controlled by the musicians themselves on their phones. It's really really cool so the bass player could turn it up just for the bass player. That's right you can turn down my guitar. Which is everybody's always telling me turning down so being guitar player like to hear a lot of guitar so anyway so the problem was that when i set this thing up at recording studio i mapped the inputs to the proximity to the musician. Because the input jacks were in the walls that ultimately ran to the mixer. So you know. I had no choice really but to use these inputs for these particular instruments. Otherwise that wires criss crossing the room. And it'd be a big nightmare. It turns out that after. I moved out of that space. We no longer needed to have this crazy out layout and up. What ended up happening was like to the horns or at one end of the you know the the list and scroll all the way to the right to get the other two warns and the vocalist. Were all over the place so it doesn't make sense. He handed to a sound guy in there. Like what is this. So i wanted to change now.

I'll fix this loaded our of no pad compels you. That's right and visual studio has discrete feature where you can paste Jason as classes and it will turn that into c. sharp classes. They'd classes may not make any sense but but it definitely takes the data representation and then you know the mixed classes out of it. Long story short ara to make a short story longer. anyway i Was able to write a little console application in about three hours. That i could you know. Put the list of channels up and swap them around and right out any jason file work like a champ. I love being a programmer. Yeah you definitely use your superpowers. That day i did and all the other musicians were like. I don't understand what you're speaking about this star trek I know what you do but anyway. That's my story. Can you turn me up please.

"Colin chartier started making video games. When he was young he used to play warcraft. Three which had a powerful map editor for users he recalls that one game map was called goblet exploration where you were stuck in the middle nowhere and you had to make civilization. He found that this was really good for learning how to make things that people want it. He lives in toronto and is a twenty minute bike ride from the waterfront many days. He will head down to the beach and work from there. New enjoys getting outdoors. When he doesn't have to call schedule that day in his prior startup. he found that he and his team were very sensitive to breaking changes as it was critical to deliver information in a timely manner. So much so that customers would turn. If anything broken the critical chain he created something to fill this gap prior venture which he was offering up to friends and colleagues via open source. This is the creation story of layer. Ci now called web dot. Io layer ci helps software developers review. The work proposed by other suffer developers. Think about you know. You're you're making a sites that sells pizza people so you have your website. You have a couple of software developers. They're making changes to the website. And you want to that. If one developer proposes a change the other developer. Make sure that the change has broken anything so a developer if they make a code change might make that the by pizza doesn't work anymore which would be a really big problem for your business. So essentially gives developers in the environment.

Bitcoin Rallies Defiantly as Senate Infrastructure Battle Hits a Snag

"What's going on guys. It is monday. August ninth and today. We're talking about bitcoins. Defiant rally as the senate battle hits something of a snag so let's get caught up on everything that happened this weekend at this point. I'm going to assume you know the setup at least somewhat last minute provision in the infrastructure bill looked to get around twenty eight billion dollars of the bills cost to be covered by new tax. Reporting rules around crypto. The problem well there are a lot of problems for one. The joint committee on taxation. That came up with this number. Hasn't had to show its work anywhere and there's fairly good reason to be skeptical that there's nearly thirty billion dollars and under reported crypto taxes but alas that wasn't the issue we had to focus on instead the issue at hand was that the new reporting requirements swept everyone in crypto networks including non-custodial actors like miners validation software developers into the definition of a broker by their very nature. These actors don't have access to the info that would be obligated to report anyway fast forward over the course of the last week. Washington was assailed with what they found to be a shocking amount of lobbying from the crypto community shocking to them perhaps much less shocking to those of us who actually know about the fervor in. This space a bipartisan group of senators including republicans. Pat toomey and cynthia lumps and democrat. Ron wyden put forth an amendment that made clear exemptions people like miners. This seemed like it should have been all that controversial republican rob portman who wrote the provisions in the first place had said numerous times that the intent was not to include those people however the treasury department who he was consulting closely with wanted. Maximum flexibility to write the implementation however they chose

With EIP 1559, Has ETH Become Ultra Sound Money?

"What's going on guys. It is thursday august fifth. And today we're talking about the ip fifteen fifty nine and whether it turns a theory 'em ether specifically into ultra sound money. I however let's do an update on the infrastructure bill where we left off yesterday. Was that a group of republican and democratic senators. Were coming together to offer. An amendment to the crypto tax reporting provision the goal of the amendment would be to specifically exclude non-custodial actors like miners from the new. Irs definition of broker as applied to the crypto industry. It's short so. I wanna read the whole thing but before we do i should also note that senator ted cruz also offered an amendment. His amendment would scrap the provision entirely. Which why think crypto would love to see most in find especially politically viable hence us focusing on the widened to llamas amendment. Here's the amendment. As written purpose to revise the rule of construction with respect to information reporting for brokers and digital assets and for other purposes on page two four three seven strike lines nine hundred twenty one and insert the following definition of broker. Nothing in this section or the amendments made by the sections shall be construed to create any inference that a person described in section six. Oh four five. C one d of the internal revenue code of nineteen eighty-six as added by this section includes any person solely engaged in the business of a validating distributed ledger transactions be selling hardware or software for which the sole function is to permit a person to control private keys which are used for accessing digital assets on the distributed ledger or see developing digital assets or their corresponding protocols for use by other persons provided that such persons are not customers of the person developing such assets or protocols so basically this is explicitly excluding validate irs hardware and software developers minors etc

I recently got a mentor. Just five to not only win. I reached out to a software developer during our conversation. He didn't say are you interested in a mentor. And i was like sure.

They are good proponent of traverse city but going into that concerns resource accompanying.

That's a really good tip looking at profiles of who worked there. Another thing that i would do in the past is i would go just to like the about page of the company and of course like while a really big company really big small company in may look different but a lot of companies will have at least their leadership team photos of them like their bios. sea level suite. And i would see okay like what do those faces like you know like like. Yeah is it. You know all white men that are older or is there a blend of people that are on the leadership team. And i would be aware of that if i was thinking of working somewhere even just working with a company in like a lesser capacity. Not a fulltime job. That just liked seeing like. Who's who are the people in charging yet. Is there anyone that looks like me. That is there which meyer you said yet. It's a good. Is there anything. is there anything else. They'll look for someone who like is trying to think about that. And they're interviewing at companies in. They're not sure like is aside from the linked in in the about page on the website. Is there anything else. They can look at or kind of take note. Uh-huh i've noticed. A lot of companies have light. Something listed on our website about inclusion in a lot of companies are hiring that never title. I think it's maverick inclusion managers. I'm not sure the title. But i've noticed like a lot of those people are working at confidence in now. Actually connect with me all incan in.

How to Make Enterprise AI Projects More Predictable

"So pinocchio i know. Our overall theme for today is going to be around How to make. Ai related projects a little bit more predictable a bit more like engineering projects software development by itself all already has high risk for projects in terms of estimating timelines etc. Why is that even so much higher when it comes to a head you like to think about that. This is a complicated topic especially because deers to software purchasing a sense. So it's inherits all of those issues but even on top of those. We might have racial there in. There are not only for the komo's it's harder for Projects but there are some that are special to it so it's just a little softer projects with a bit more. We'll calls a bit more troubles. Yeah i like the term inherit. They inherit the problems have normal software development but also have their own their own things. What are those. What are the ingredients here of these new unique layers of complexity. Yeah so let's talk about a few of the common wants so let's say that you for trying to find out a very good software developer and market that that's hard but we have much more softer developers out there. Then we have like data scientists just because of that is already much easier to find a suffer developer. Dan data scientists so saint problems but harder for a project for infrastructure. For instance you might have your cic deep applies you might have a task everything else in place for software but then you have the machine learned models that you have to have the same stuff when we talk about so again same problem but with a plus and then there's a lot of other things related to business goals technical goals and metrics so hard to to do it own on software generally so seventy percent of the software products might fail and i don't have a very good number i it. It feels bigger. One of the reasons in this common area is that we might have does misconception. That is a magical blackbox.

"You have been playing cash for many years well over a decade and kind of mistakes cash. We're not talking high nose bleed kind of what is it. Been like for that because we will talk about your youtube presence. You're logging in how that really is taken off. But well prior to that you were poker player. It's not that you are of vlogger that plays poker. It's really the other way around. Is that you played poker for so many years and kind of logging has kind of come into this space how was it and what were your trials and tribulations playing cash poker for a living because everyone loves seeing the big scores but people don't understand the grind sometimes of six sessions in a row where you don't win everyone's happy when we have a twenty five hundred five thousand dollar pot and can show it on on air but how many times do you struggle struggle struggle and flush dr doesn't get there or you flopped upset and they get run a runner and now you're going home with you know only job in the world where you can work x. number of hours and go home poor right. I mean it's very rare that that happens talk about your trials and tribulations in how it got to the point where you really felt like you could steadily make a living at this. Because it's really hard. I remember the first day that i left my job as a software developer with 401k health benefits and all these things i remember thinking like if i if i don't make good money playing poker i can always go back and get offered job again and you know the i i i was doing. I was doing well right out of the gate. But you gotta keep in mind that it wasn't that difficult to make money playing cash game poker if you had a solid strategy fifteen years ago because the money was everybody you could find a two five game anywhere that was great and you know there was probably one hundred to five games on any given night in las vegas during this time so i i was doing well but naturally as you progress in any career you want to make more money than the previous year and you want to get better and you want to further your career and you know. That's that's easy to do. Fifteen years ago and poker. You know you could start applying one three. You can make thirty five thousand dollars that first year. Feel like it was amazing but the next year. You know your your goals maybe fifty thousand in the next year your goals. Maybe seventy five thousand. But then you reach a point where you're making around one hundred hundred twenty five thousand dollars a year and you realize that in order to make more than that you need to get substantially better. You need to find better games and the games needs to be big and what's interesting about. That is poker. Games were shrinking. They were getting smaller over the course of the last five to ten years and they were getting tougher. So no i even if even if you got better in your own poker game it didn't ensure that you were gonna make more money than the next year right. I remember i kind of plateaued about six years ago. Where i was in the one hundred to one hundred twenty five thousand dollar a year range and i didn't really see gray prospects for making more than that and and just as a natural Ambitious human being. That started sparking me. Like what else can i do to ignite passion in the game. And what else can. I do to keep things interesting for me. And that's kind of how you know. Creating the poker channel came about My my five ten game had died. That i was playing in san diego on a consistent basis. That game was no more. So i was in a precarious spot. Where how am. I going to continue to make this good money with smaller games and i thought it would be a perfect time to start a new project and i remember those first couple of episodes that i started. I didn't think anybody's gonna watch him. I was just. I was just trying to get better at public speaking. And you know perhaps china Develop some other avenues of interest at a time. When i was unsure where the cash games could take me As far as the ceiling was and it it took off after the seventh episode. When i lost sixty five hundred dollars in a in five ten in in one session. I picked up the camera and put it in my face and i was like this sucks because like this game doesn't run twenty four hours anymore. I got like eight hours a day. That i can play this game. It might take me a while to win back. Sixty five hundred kind of share that on my youtube channel and algorithm picked it up. And they're like wow. This is a real poker player. That's making youtube videos. So i think that the looting to what you talked about before. I wasn't scared to talk talk about my thought process. I wasn't scared to say how i played hands. I was competent and my poker game. I think one thing that a lot of people have have happened as their newer poker players that are making you content so they're kind of more Afraid to just say what happened right and like you know because people are gonna show up in the comments and be like oh you played that like an idiot or what. Are you doing three batting without hand but for me. My confidence in my overall poker game. That part didn't bother me like if you were gonna talk crap about my game in the comments. I was fine with that. You know and i think that. That's what destroys a lot of people in the early stages shirt will have that confidence in know the when you sign yourself up for youtube comments the youtube comments they're gonna come come

You've had so For a couple of months now. But i started my career about a goodness a decade ago. Now and i started actually in the federal government not as a software developer but as a program manager and it was my dream job. And i was really excited about it and i worked there for two and a half years and i hated absolutely every second of it it was just terrible fit for me so bad so there's sort of two things that made it so bad. I was bored. Okay that was one piece but to is. I had a mathematics background in a minor in computer science. I was getting my master's in computer science while i was there and the federal government. Does this funny thing where they try and make the workforce looks smaller than it is Politics and the way that they do that is that they hire a bunch of contractors to do all of this work and that's super frequent in the technical states and so they have government employees which is like federal civilians. Which is what i was. An our job is to manage the contract of the people doing the work and okay so it was just a really bad fit for. I don't care about cost schedule and performance really at all of computer and let me do something. I didn't get all this education for nothing. When i decided i was gonna leave. I didn't think i had the chops to be a fulltime coder. I was like oh get. Some technical analysts hybrid kind of job. And i talked to internship bosses that i'd had and other sort of family connections which i'm very grateful for and they were all Gobi junior and i did and i was a consultant at a couple of different places over the course of seven years. And when you're a consultant you see so many things and you work all over the stack and with all sorts of different technologies and so. Let me sort of figure out what i liked. And i kept navigating towards. I call it middle end now but it's sort of like front end tooling and i got really used to not i'm super dogmatic about this one technology but what is the best tool for this

His name is andrew and originally he was just looking for to get his parents like a vaccine appointment and he was able to eventually do that but he realized that like this was really challenging to do and he's pretty computer savvy being a software developer so he found vaccine hunter dot org which is a website in the states and was doing a lot of vaccine awareness. They did a lot of like leftover vaccine things but he he founded. That would probably be something. We could use in canada regardless of how or vaccine rolex going or anything like that so he created vaccine hunters dot ca and also created the twitter account back centers can and created a discord servers. Well which is for those. That don't know what that is. It's kind of like a chatting tool similar to like an instant messenger.

Hospital price disclosure is the law not happening

"Today's episode i wanna talk about hospital pricing. You know this is an area that is the probably the biggest problem in healthcare costs hospitals have conspired to prevent people to comparison shop. And if you look at where. the cost. medical care has skyrocketed in the last twenty years. It's all on the hospitals doctors not at all nurses not at all pharmaceuticals well. They're somewhat a problem but the whole ballgame has been the hospitals and the hospitals have fought every possible. Way doing what they're supposed to do which is give you the ability to comparison shop. They are required by law to allow you to know the price of a procedure based on your individual health care coverage you have insurance or what. It costs if you don't but do you know. An investigation exclusive investigation by the wall. Street journal found that hospitals are using code. Software developers have come up with to hide their pricing. So they're complying with the letter of the law. The pricing is there on the hospital websites but then they use coding to hide the prices. So when you go to comparison shop you can't this is disgusting. People have been fighting about obamacare since. What two thousand nine. twenty ten. Whatever and before obamacare during obamacare. Whatever comes after obamacare. The problem is not how we ensure people. The problem is all on the cost side. And it's all with these hospitals. They conspire against the best interests of our country.

Fortnite for beginners

"Fortnight is a massive multiplayer online video. Game developed by epic games released in two thousand seventeen is available in three distinct game mode versions so they otherwise share the same general game. Play in game engine But these three distinct versions are fortnight. Colon save the world. Okay fortnight no colon battle royale fortnite battle royale and fortnight creative. Oh there's three of them. So the objectives vary depending on which mode you're playing but the broad goal of fortnight is to survive against a prolonged force antagonist who will attempt to eliminate you okay so for night begin from an internal game jamat epoch game so there in american video game and software developer and publisher based out of north carolina So they did this internal game jam around twenty eleven after they published the game gears of war so a game jam which i only recently learned at work a game. Jam is a contest where participants try to a video game from scratch with a specific deadline. So it's usually like twenty four hours or you know maybe maybe seventy two hours to work to come up with this so it's kind of like a like a creativity burst. I'll shut the the bowl of that is to work with other people and create a game from scratch so depending on the format again your participants might be in teams maybe you are working independently. Who knows but epic games is also the developer of the unreal engine which is an open source in advanced real time. Three d creation tool. And you'll hear a lot of Video games and special effects and even like some film stuff runs off of this unreal engine. So the unreal engine. Original purpose was as a state of the art game engine. But it's now used across industries so it's for cutting edge content interactive experiences in immersive virtual worlds Unreal engine is a real time engine. An editor that features photo realistic rendering dynamic physics and effects robust data translation and also lifelike animation. So it's kind of a big thing whenever somebody is using the unreal engine. You know you're going to get really could effects from it so that that's all out of epic games which which founded in the savage that engine so for me was not initially one of the games that was actually developed during that game jim but the concept of merging the construction game genre so games like sim city or minecraft with shooter games came together and it led to the foundation affording. So you probably know. It sim city is if you're our age but a refresher on minecraft so in minecraft which was first released in two thousand nine actually players. Explorer blackie procedurally generated three d world with infinite terrain and they may discover an extract raw materials craft tools and items and build structures or works so game modes in minecraft include a survival mode in which players must acquire resources to build the world and maintain health and creative mode where players have unlimited resources. So players can modify or maud game to create new gameplay mechanics items and assets and minecraft has a very distinctive like visual s. That like you can recognize if somebody showing you a screenshot of minecraft. So what epic did is they prepared to release fortnight as a paid early access title in july twenty seventeen and they had plans to release it as free to play some time in twenty nine thousand nine after gaining feedback from players to improve the game so originally titled fortnight and lear renamed to fortnight colon. Save the world. This original base module is a player versus environment cooperative game. So you have four players collaborating toward a common objective on various missions. The game is set after a fluke. Storm appears across earth causing about ninety eight percent of the population to disappear and the survivors are attacked by zombie. Like husks so the player takes the role of commanders of home. Shelters collecting resources saving survivors and defending equipment. That helps to either collect date on the storm or push back the storm. In from missions players are awarded a number of in game items including hero characters. Weapons trap schematics and survivors all of which can be leveled up through gained experience to improve their attributes. Also you're working together with people against this common enemy player versus environment cooperative game. In around the same time the epic released fortnight into early access pub g had become a worldwide phenomenon selling millions of copies and drawing strong interest in the battle royale genre so a battle royale game is an online multiplayer video game that blends the survival exploration and scavenging elements of a survival game with kind of the last man standing game. Play so the name. The genre is taken from two thousand japanese film titled battle royale which was based on a novel of the same name and presents a similar theme of a last man standing competition in a shrinking play zone. So you've heard people. My brother plays this one. You've heard people's mentioned before what the heck is pub- g it's an abbreviation for player unknowns battlegrounds so that's an online multiplayer battle royale game and in this game one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves So there's an available safe area. The games map which decreases in size over time and it ends directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters with other players. And the last player or team standing wins the round The game's concept and design was led by brendan green. Who's better known by his online handle player known and he'd previously created mods for other battle rail type games pudgy was the top selling premium game of two thousand seventeen selling thirty million copies worldwide and grossing. About nine hundred million dollars. I have can. I tell you never heard of this game in my whole life. You know you are. You aren't really doing a lot of player games. How it's absolutely right. You know what i. It's funny i feel like there's been a couple of questions and learn a league in maybe the last five seasons or so that like the answer will be some video game or something that we that when we see the answer. We've never heard of this popular selling thing in all of the world and it sold got julian copies and everybody except you plays it. What's the so this is why we're absolutely. Yeah so you know. Epochs saw what pudgy had been doing and they were like maybe we could also do a battery. Yeah so what. Epic did was rapidly develop their own version atop their original fortnight in about two months so by september two thousand seventeen at was about to release this as a second mode from save the world in the paid for earlier access but then later decided to release this as a free game that would be supported with microtransactions. Microtransactions are the business model where users can purchase virtual goods with micro payments and make your transactions are often used in free to play games to provide a revenue source for the developers and there are a staple of the mobile app market so in game currency in fort night is called v books to them. You might see this icon happens sometimes. The you see llamas pop up and fortnight okay. So llamas also known as lama pinatas are the main loop boxes in fortnight and they are also fortnight's primary mascot so the vendor tech store is where players can purchase lama pinatas to break open for rewards in llamas can be produced using view bucks or event specific currency and they contain various helpful. Items like heroes schematics. Weapons and there are also different types of llamas in the game including basic llamas daily llamas and event llamas so For an has a very distinctive aesthetic. It's very cartoony. there's a very distinct color palette. I mean it's it's actually pretty visually pleasing see this distinctive looking lama. You know that that is for

One Year Later: Indicators On The Pandemic Economy

"One of the clearest lessons that we've learned about the pandemic economy is that there are huge gaps between the experiences of different groups of people and he is specific gap that we have been focusing on people who had low wage jobs before the pandemic have been much much more likely to lose their jobs. Then people with high wage jobs the data on this come from a new study by the new york fan and it is quite stark. Yeah by the end of last year there were actually more jobs for people who make high wages than there were before the pandemic this is people who make typically more than about eighty five thousand dollars a year so these include jobs like software developers engineers lawyers corporate executives and these jobs have completely returned not too many of them were ever even lost in the first place even in those terrible months right after the pandemic started now compare that to people who work jobs that typically pay less than thirty thousand dollars a year. Those jobs include things like food servers cashiers home health aides childcare workers and there were still fourteen percent fewer of those jobs at the end of last year that is a staggering gap. We haven't seen anything like this gap between highway jobs and low wage jobs in any of the recessions going back at least three decades and the gap exists now for a kind of obvious reason the unique nature of the pandemic recession. Yes a lot of these. low wage. Jobs are in restaurants bars hotels jobs acquiring a lot of direct human interaction and so a lot of these places had to close or their customers just stopped spending money on them and there is a reason that we're focusing so much on this disparity between low wage and high wage workers it feeds into the other disparities in the economy. A lot of those lower wage jobs are disproportionately done by young workers by workers without college degrees and by black and hispanic workers. And that's a big part of the reason. Why each of these groups also suffered a disproportionate share of the jobs. Lost our second group of indicators is about the economic policy lessons we've learned in the pandemic and here's the i almost impossible to believe indicator as terrible as the economy has been for the past year. There is almost no difference between the sheriff people who are in poverty now versus before the pandemic not only that but this year. The number of people in poverty is expected to fall by more than a third. So that by the end of twenty twenty one there will be more than thirteen million fewer people in poverty than there are right now. The main reason why the. Us government has now passed. Three huge aid and stimulus bill since the start of the pandemic to support the economy and the third bill. Which is president. Joe biden's american rescue plan was just passed by congress yesterday so of course the effects have not yet kicked in but we do know what was in that bill and most importantly we know what it has in common with the to bill signed by president. Donald trump last year which passed with bipartisan support in congress specifically when you look at the money that's being spent by the bills combined by far the biggest chunk of it is the cash that's being sent directly to individuals and families mainly in the form of stimulus checks and unemployment benefits for people who have lost their jobs and the combined scale of the bills is enormous about five trillion dollars in aid for the economy. That is at least three times as much the stimulus money. The government spent to fight the great recession of two thousand eight two thousand nine and just an offer a sense of how much extra money is reaching families because of these bills. Here's what a washington post analysis found. Take a family of four people two parents and two young kids and they live say in massachusetts now soon that one of the two parents lost their job at the beginning of the pandemic and still has not found work. That family in total will end up receiving more than fifty thousand dollars in support from the government that it would not have received without these three bills and the government is paying for all three of these bills by simply borrowing more money and for the most part politicians from both parties. Haven't really made a deal about this. And these are some big changes from how the government has responded to previous recessions like take the great recession of two thousand and eight. When there were extremely loud worries from politicians on both sides about the government barring lots of money to fight the downturn and also a much smaller share of the money back then was used for directly sending cash to people more of the money then we spent on other things like aid to state and local governments infrastructure projects and other investments. Yeah back then. The government was also still more reliant on the federal reserve to respond to recessions but the fed can't directly. Send money to people that they do not have to pay back. It can boost the economy by lending money to financial institutions and certain businesses it can also lower interest rates to convince people and businesses to borrow more money and by the way the fed was still a big part of responding to the covid recession but the us government by using its unique power to send cash directly to people cash. That they don't have to pay back was willing to accept a much bigger role this time. Does this mean that as the economy reopened this year it will bounce back way faster than it did after the two thousand eight recession when the recovery was sluggish until years. We'll find out. Most economists expect it will. They are forecasting that this year the us economy will grow at its fastest pace since nineteen eighty three. And if they're right than the. Us government operating under two different presidents from opposing parties. May well have established a new way to respond to the terrible recessions of the future.

The archive is a. You know a bit of a shock. It's kind of sad disappointing. That that were at this position. But you very grateful to be be in a situation where i can try to respond to it though it had been inspired by kathy cotton. A longtime silicon valley recruiter turned archivist. She saw that.

He's responsible for utilizing the latest digital marketing strategies to enhance conversion outcomes. Luck also runs. Click truro platform to help digital marketers. Connect with jobs they love. I love the idea of that because there is much quake out there but it's not always loved doing so i love that idea lachlan. Welcome to the episode. Thank you very exotic jumping boom crite. Sorry laughlin has the company web flow. And we're gonna pull apart web flow from the outside from a market his point of view we look at what we love what we hate what we're curious about. We don't understand what we think to better and we're going to see if we can work basically web flow from the outside what marketing is doing it. Also a little bit about the that whole space about web design and non code and everything behind that and that movement so lachlan for those people playing along at high. Can you tell us a little bit about web. Fly before we dig into it. Yeah absolutely so. We're pretty ubiquitous right now in the tech industry. It's pretty much interrupting the whole no code. Move it on over the past couple of years and it really has been in the past twelve months that no codes taken. The wolves stolman essentially. What occurred is just tools that allow you to build products without having to actually see kurt itself. So it's almost like visual programming and this certainly being tools out there for years. Things like wordpress that it'd been able to do that full people but the tools a getting won't powerful these days or you can create user accounts and just like dynamic content across websites and being around for a very very long time. Actually it's been through many iterations. I think it was in two thousand and nine found. Start working on it. But the reason. I guess it's gotten so big is because the whole creator right now is booming especially throughout covert wherever almost starting to explore what it could be to build their own businesses and people without technical experience. More in pal emba build anything in the space of a couple of weeks and the other big reason is that the tackles better so you can scale things much better on no code these days much easier to design things with custody. Assess without even having to know how to write. Css and two boys strengths. That's what they specialize in the most. And the reason i chose web flows. Because i'm actually contracting for a company called bubble and they one of the other leaders in the no code base is actually one of our competitors is that i for years have worshipped his marketing strategy. I think what they're doing is absolutely fantastic. So i always take inspiration from one day doing and try to add a little fight onto it if bobble great so this space that i love when something like no code is invented because like you said it already existed my people already using. He said wordpress. Maybe they had weeks or squarespace. And you know he wasn't given a name and then marketers and advertising and branding type people were always brilliant at taking something and then it already existed to a certain degree and then creating a little definition around creating a movement was wet flow. Did you say they jumped onto the nike. Instead of position cells around that or would you think will instrumental of really pushing the whole non code movement hit by the found. That bubble actually didn't prefer or didn't like the cut because they thought it was like another blockchain kind of hardwood before using so they prefer visual program because that is descriptive. As to what it is way floor didn't coined the term. I think the community just started giving it that night because they wanted names for like who they would not software developers but there will so people who can build software so what you call them so they just started calling himself. No code is and where floor really saw about as an offer changes to kinda mold that identity within the industry and they started using that pretty commonly throughout debris raining. They'll using i know they have no code. Which is like yield conference the no code space which the first people to coin so yeah definitely been writing that way and trying to push that as much as they can now and even a problem. Now we're really starting to embrace the whole code movement and use that within content that we share. So let's let's get a little bit into that besides just heads completely around it so people who in one sense no code is in the fact that they they built a website on wakes card but actually the designer of code starts to feel to me like somebody who has an appreciation of code all the need for bespoke but doesn't actually code the base back end. Because when i look at web flood look at their interface. It's a bit more complex. It's not it's not week there is card. You can just go in there and you can adjust by the pixel you can change something from sixteen pixels. Seventeen pixels you can. Actually edit the actual definitions is not just drag and drop is that. Is that how carter defines themselves. It's it's more than just not cutting with no card. That's almost like a simple version. This is much more. It's a bit like being vegan. Not just about not eating animal products. It's about the movement of veganism. No code is basically the vegan so the coding world further point. Do they then shout about. I don't like vikings yes. Yes and yes absolutely on the avid note of myself. And the reason. I contract bob because i was using bubble for year and eventually ended up just out the founders and often producing more full them so i guess i fit quite nicely into the digital market out. My background in tech sought ups. I can read some strings of code. But i definitely can't write anything. Hdl's probably the furtherest. My knowledge goes to. But i certainly have an appreciation for it. I know how important it is and yet there is definitely staple learning cove to tools like web particularly bubble because bubble. You're actually writing logic. You just don't see the java script that you're writing it just visually for you. But it certainly does take quite a bit on the senate and the one of the reasons that i love web blow it so much and i'm happy to dive into the sun is just the amount of content created around education for even just like on boarding people to that product is phenomenal. I think that's one of the reasons why eighty so while you let's trump strains that so what i always do. My first love of marketing was seo. That's the first discipline i got gotten. So my depot position is eight sticker dominion and have a look and look at it and kind of guys. Sixty three thousand referring domains. Thirty five million back lanes but whatever that's worth but five hundred and ten thousand six hundred eighty seven organic monthly traffic. So i'm looking at. Nih risk worth one point six million dollars worth of sea traffic right so good start but to your point you know that half a million organic keywords. That comes from amazing content and that content that goes beyond sort of someone searching for no code web design till this is about understanding the pain points of a persona and giving first and then sort of building from matt can you. You've obviously looked more at the may what what do you feel like. They content strategy is for this particular persona so it wasn't a casa Previously in haas about the found is all web flow and when they initially started a business the actual personas that they created and it was two of them that they just laser focused on. That was all. They focused on building for and the main one was a an existing software. Developer knows how to write code. He knows how sorry they know. How to build custom websites or prox- but they just want a streamline that time so they might be a freelance that might have an agency and they can only just. I'd sell that time for money. And you know the time it takes to build a custom. Product is just much longer than it is to build it on web play with have existing templates or you can just drag and drop elements so that was one of the main problems that we're going to solve the thing you'll notice on that blog is suddenly post a low content around like the industry but then may educational content. Is things like a series where they actually educate those uses. All those personas on how to better themselves. So they've got like a blog series for building Agency oil building a website with good. Seo or even if you're building a costume e stole just how to build that still but how did you first customers how to build your attention with customers how to create a u x so that way you know your conversion rate increases so they really want that cost us to succeed and i think that's why we're succeed so

"And we're back in today's episode. I speak with Michael, Pimentel. Michael Story is fascinating worked in the glassblowing industry specifically for film sets for nine years before he started teaching himself how to Code. And what makes him even more? Interesting is the fact that he doesn't have a college degree. Anti never went to a coding bootcamp. He is entirely self-taught. and. That is exactly what we're GONNA be talking about today. How he taught himself to code. WOW, working fulltime. How guys first job in tack and how he got more roles in the tech industry as time went on. If you tips for staying motivated while learning how to Code. This episode is for you enjoy. Hey. Michael. Thank you so much for coming on the show today. It will on six February I'm real excited to talk with you. You have like interesting. Self taught experience in. That's what I would like to dive into I. Could you share with us how you got started in software engineering? Absolutely so kind of Story kind of goes back to a few years ago when I was working for a company that made life for the film industry <hes> now working there as a manufacturer glassblowing really interesting work. Kind of working in a manufacturing type of shop warehouse, loud, working on a lay, that spun in a really hot environment I was there for a really long time and things just. Kinda didn't progress in terms of career. Wise and financially it was just really typical <hes> I live in California and California being one of the most expensive place live. It just wasn't sustainable. <hes> married and I have a child and that it just wasn't something that I could maintain so it kind of motivated me to start thinking I need to. Probably either go back to school or another another route career choice so i. can you know build to support and have a career that can provide general finance, support and everything like that, so it kind of led me to back to. My interest in computers and everything like that, so I started to do some online, searching and everything like that and it. Brought me to software development coding, you know some booming career choice that is really big right now and everything like that was like okay. Maybe I should go back to school for that, but at the time it really wasn't the best option I went acted. As a couple of glasses <unk> time, that's what I could afford at my community college, and then just got really difficult to maintain a full-time job and take one or two classes, and it got really expensive, because my wife was what was going to school in college and everything like that, so it was really difficult for us to support both less going especially you know. Not really knowing what I wanted to do. So I I did a lot of searching and I came across recode camp and recode camp. You know like when you get on their landing page. It's like learning one to code for free and always people learn this way and I was like wait three. This isn't make sense. This will usually scams off there. Start off Rian. Then you have to pay something and everything like that and you know to my surprise actually was free, and then so I started I jumped right in, and just started to go to the curriculum, and it sparked my interest and I was like. Wow, this is really cool. It's it kind of. Goes about in a way that. Gets you interested really quickly? You know with hd Mounsey assassin how you can get feedback on the webpage really quickly. Let's kind of how it started <hes> because I. Just I just couldn't go. That route was a canoe into school because it was just really expensive and I already had like a car loan, I couldn't get like student loan. It was just wasn't really practical. It's like cave. Do put myself some really extreme debt that I don't know if it's GonNa lead to something. That's GONNA pay in the end so I had to find another option and looked like learning to code on my own free resources when that resource beginning with recode camp was was the route I took. Awesome so I, want to backtrack a little bit to your. Your work before you got into coding, so you you okay? You said he was a manufacturing role. I haven't made notes that you were a glass blower which anti note that is for movies today shows. Definitely. What is it glasses? Sure okay, so a glass blower, typically like of someone like Google glass large usually someone that takes some raw material which consists of the materials, t make glass essentially depending on what what the? The. End Product is going to be different types of glass. Of course so basically you take them in you hit Heaton furnace, or with a really hot torture claim so that it becomes like in this malleable state, and then you shape it essentially so what I did there? We work on a leave, and we basically built like the light bulb globe. It's spun on a lathe and then you would really. Really hot with a hydrogen oxygen burners, two thousand degrees, and then you shape it based on certain dimensions so basically they would take that, and then we'd have a filament type that would basically you know, have some kind of chemical reaction than light up base off whatever the the fixture needed you know for the filming, so the specific light that they made there was an Hmo which is like a chemical. Name that I really don't know all the details into it, but it basically replicates the color of the sun so like if you see like on film sets, use those lights that kind of are the background that make everything look real, daytime and night-time filming. Those are the lights that we made when I worked there <hes> we're one of the few American companies still made them like with our hands, still as opposed to a machine meaning making them in a in a warehouse somewhere. But in a sense, essentially, that's what it was. We were just making them with a glassblowing. That's what I did while working there while I think nine or ten years. We Really, oh my goodness. Wow so start I'm surprised. It was that long because for people. Listening to this show were actually speaking through video so I can see you so I'm like. Wow doesn't look like he can hold a John. Young so young to have a job for that long. Then start another career. Okay? Wow, that awful. How did you get into that? Because that feels very niche, you're essentially making bulldogs. That camera crews in production crews are using on the sets of TV shows I mean. We were chatting before we recorded you live in California. I know like the entertainment industry is. In the movie industry in all of that is obviously very prominent out there is that kind of how that happened or It's interesting <hes> so actually the reason why I got into it is because my dad worked in that industry or like thirty years, and I had come out of working at John Juice and I was their. First job actually was working as a team member workup to insistent manager, and then eventually needed to make more money, because I got married at a really young so I. My dad ended up helping me getting the job there and you know I just ended up staying there for a really long time, but it's really how I got into. It was as my dad was in that industry longtime. He had connections and everything like that. Dot It. Did you go to a trade school or anything for glassblowing? No I actually just learned on the job. And still to this day is one of the most difficult things that I've ever done. Physically I for almost anything that can compare it to I think. Programming is its own challenge, but is like the hardest physical. Thing I've ever had to learn because it was like. If you don't do it right the first time, then you ruin it. So there's no going back and fixing it once. You kind of ruin it because the glass that we would work with you'd have to mix it with metals, and then once it's kind of melted to a certain point, you can't go back in extract those materials out of the glass, so it's Kinda ruined. If you don't do it, right is probably there really nerve, wracking or when I did that job. Yeah Wow, it also sounds like it could be dangerous if you're working as really like high temperatures. Absolutely I got burned really bad third degree burns I have degree burns like all my arm from it, but yeah, it was. It's definitely. Was I'm just curious. Did that have any role in your decision to look for a new job like I? Know you mentioned like the financial side, but were there other things, too? Yeah absolutely a that part being okay, so the big part, actually a aside from like the financial reasons that it just didn't pay that much. It was the work environments. It is in the Central Valley of California which in the summertime gets you know triple digits consistently and the warehouse that it is done is basically like a garage. It doesn't have an air condition. It doesn't have any of those things so the environment itself was. was just really really taxing. There's been a couple of times when I had gotten heat exhaustion, I got sent home because of it because like say it's one hundred, three, hundred ten, even outside inside that shop where you'd be working is a hundred twenty one hundred thirty degrees, and it was just unbearable is the if you've our to look back on some old twitter posts? I probably have pictures of like a thermometer in the area. And it's just like maxed out because it was just so hot, but yeah, that's that's probably WANNA be. A motivating factors to wanting to look for another job. It got to point where I was like. I need to get out of here. No matter what this job is just killing me physically, and you know a lot of other reasons <hes> you can imagine in an environment like that the people that you tend to work around kind of like really. Not The best work environment because you know on a lot of stress and you know tend not to <hes> get along very well when they're under a lot of stress is mentally and just everything that came along with that job, so it just became kind of like a hostile work environment as well so it was like a lot of. Factors that Kinda came into me like I have to get out of here you to find something else you know. Yeah well I mean that definitely makes sense. There's a few other people or one that is coming to mind that. We had on the show in a previous season. Whose name is Josh Camp? And he was a hope I. Stay this right a horse I think it's a horse fairer fairer, hope, number news right, but he would change the hooves on horses, which could also be really dangerous. Obviously, a horse kicks you and I believe it was an injury that ultimately led him to. You know look for other work in in what will link to that in the show notes for people listening now 'cause it. Was You know a few years back when we had on the show and any other episode, I believe it could have had a few where there was someone with a moron. Sick physically dangerous or physically labor job, and that's kind of what led them to to make a pretty big pivot because I can like working for you as a glass blower in those in that environment, physical <unk>, Super Super Hot. It's totally different from working as a software engineer. And when you started coding, you mentioned using Free Co camp in other free resources. Were you still working fulltime as the glass blower and you are learning outside of that? Yes I was so I would I had a fulltime job there, and because of the heat I would work really really early hours I try to go in his earliest possible as three in the morning. Get off at noon or whatever it was Leonard Twelve so that time that I would get off of course I'd already so exhausted. Matt jobs so I have to go home and sleep a little bit and then. The thing with those interesting with that is. It was hard for me to be going having a fulltime job like that. Maybe some people can relate to that. You know like a maybe just a fulltime job in general is exhausting, but this job probably pushed it because of the environment itself the hostility behind it. That kind of gave me more motivation to be like you know what I'm really tired right now. And I'm not really motivated to to learn coding complete, foreign and difficult, but when I get off work the way I did time, so you know wanting to leave that place so bad that it was just that extra boost motivation for me to learn and study and just do everything I needed to do to succeed in it on just because it was just so bad. I got desperate. Really desperate I just remember that <unk> I tend to forget that, but then when I do remember I'm like wow, it helps me to be like really grateful. You know to where I am now, and it was really hard working fulltime job in learning, because I did learn while working there probably about a year and a half, maybe almost two years I was learning. And <hes>. There was there were times when I would make huge progresses, but then. At the same time thinking like is this really possible? How do people get a job doing? It's like yeah. I can build a website, but there's more to it you like. Is this all I need to get a job type thing you know <hes>. But Yeah! It was it was hard and I. Don't want to say like Oh yeah. It's super easy because it. Wasn't especially having to work fulltime job in it's all I could just you know. Take days off now and everything like that. I had to work. But yeah. It was difficult. So you were. Doing ice, you said for like one and a half two years where you were doing boom things at the same time. appleaday mentioned this earlier, but you. Free Co camp. Did you use any other resources or you mentioned Community College? Were you taking classes there? Yeah so additional to recode camp so the there's a lot of other things that I did that helped me <hes> so free code camp opened up at the time. I haven't camp while, but at the time had lake. Away that you would join and beat up and it was through facebook. It was like face, looking need groups or something, and it was like find a recode camp. Meet up because I. Guess they had like an umbrella. Recode camp meet ups that you can join, and you would basically type in your city in order find the nearest one that was that was organized and everything like that, so I found one in my city and it was you know a few people apartment that would meet up in so I joined that group and I reached out on their. Pre Cochem does a really good job with trying to connect people, so it's like hey, introduce yourself in post on there, so that people can no, no your journey Cetera so i. did that and I ended up meeting up with the organizers of that? Meet Up. We met at starbucks talked about you know everything on learning this and that where you and Rico camped up thing so eventually, I got more involved in that met more people that were learning as well and then now it. Kinda led to Terry member Oh the Mita. Dot Com meet up. There was also the recode. KEMP MEDIA DOT COM for our area that was attached to that facebook group. And, he was like yeah. I just started this. Meet up group, so we can kind of be more broad for people that don't have facebook. We can just Kinda grow up there and he was like you WanNa, help me with that because you know. He was maintaining full job as well, and he needed someone to Kinda. Fill in that gap where he couldn't. You know sounds like yeah. Sure I could definitely help with that, so I helped him. <hes> kind of on the organization's portion of that. meet up and <hes> like. Hey, let's try to meet. Kind of swap the weeks you know will be on a Saturday one week and then. I'll take the next every type of thing we'd be out of starbucks. And then someone posted on the meet up of feed. Like hey does a hack upon coming up, you guys should come reach out and you know I think it was free, and it was in our area, so I went to the hacker thon and myself in a couple of other people that were in that group, and then we ended up a or ended meeting a few other people at that meet up. That were real professional programmers. At the <unk> thoughts I introduced myself to them and everything like that met some really really nice. And probably the most helpful in kind person was actually the the organizer of that Agathon. When. I met him and everything like that. He gave me his contact information in and said Hey, we should get together sometime. I'm Cha and he was a professional programmer, running his own business and everything like that, so eventually I stayed in contact with him, and I met up with him, and I told him my journey and what I'm trying to do, super supportive of us all about helping people in my situation, you know like make connections, and even even help them with an internship and everything like that, and that's Kinda weird kicked off actually where it went from me trying to learn to me, actually making connections in potentially those connections leading to jobs. That was huge. Actually <hes> so this person that ran out. Pakistan also ran his on meet up. and His name was a little bit more. Mature he had a organized large meet ups and organised like a speakers where he would teach people how to get started with a new technology and all that stuff you know, so. This percent met up with them, and they're willing to like. Hey, you WANNA work on a project with. Wow real project like that's what I need to experience with a project, so I met with him or opt in some of the people that worked with him, and he ended up working with a lot of other guys that <hes> or just people in general men and women that were like kind of doing their own thing that a little bit more advanced as As programmers they're building girl websites starting their own software business in lake, a consulting and everything like that. That's where kind of took off. Is that connection? You know I to a upon met some people, and then it led to more people that we're kind of in the same boat as me, and if they are more advanced, they're willing to help me. By struggled with something and everything like that. It was really a douse like typical in me being successful. Yeah that is a great story and Other interviews I've been doing this season. We invite the guests on, and we think they have a really interesting transformation. Story is kind of like who I've been really <hes>. Trying to get on the show this season and every single person that I've interviewed so far and there's been you know. Handful have all. Had this like really awesome Lake County. Component to their story and men like Kinda. Showing how supportive the tech community is in in various ways, and it sounds like you found that you know through this. Through connections through other connections with more experienced people in the field that helped catapult you forward in the they were able to help support you in various ways and maybe help if you're stuck as you said, build your first project and I think that's really cool I. Think it's really good for beginners to hear that because I know when I first started out in probably you, too. I would imagine it can be really intimidating and feel like very overwhelming, and you can feel really alone, and it's like it's almost. I haven't experienced like trying to break into other industries, but in a lot of ways I feel like even though texts seemed really intense in really hard I mean it is, but there's just such kind and helpful people like a friend, totally random side story, but she's not intact. She was trying to break into. The entertainment like film like Moodley TV shows. and. She had to work at an unpaid internship for like a year in really like claw her way up. She actually does really awesome. <unk> producing on really awesome documentaries now but. It was like really hard, very competitive very very. Very like you know and I feel like the tech community is so different from that like it's. People are Super Helpful yeah definitely. I've heard that as well. I'm not sure if it's if it's like the demand in this industry that were like trying to get into maybe people, maybe a logical gotten to it, and they kind of see you know all the hard work that. It takes. I, guess that they want to help other people as well or like coming from something like my background and everything like that. They kind of want to help people as well, but yeah, I noticed that as well as a lot of really helpful people, even before I started going through the ups and everything I joined twitter, and that's when I found like just like a free code cannot co Newbie A. PODCAST are their Hashtag in general dislike just to get help and everything like that, and when I when I reached out that way, just random people that were professionals judgment like hey. I think I'll struggling with. Like centering Adib or CSS, something something kind of silly. You know I needed help with it and some random person was like. Hey, Gimme, your hub Repo <hes> albeit with that was like. Wow, some random person that realize but more Santander worked at Microsoft or something like that and are willing to help I didn't even know this person <hes>, but yeah, definitely noticed that about the industry's is a lot of willing people to help you regardless. Of Your background and everything like that. Yeah another guest I. Literally just had on the podcast said that she had so many breakthroughs. A CAITLIN for people listening to the show and in episode Caitlin. She was talking about how she had so many breakthroughs on twitter <hes> asking for help in people that she didn't even know. Offering to help her in various capacities, I feel like twitter is such a good. Well, it's funny. Because social media like every platform kind of has its own. Little like corner or whatever it could be really good for certain things and I feel like asking for help. Like in that way. Twitter is awesome because people will jump in people. It's almost like a forum, but it's not, but people are very like. Communicate unlike you know instagram or something, which is mostly about the photos and it's. It's not the same kind of. Environment just different. Anyway, it's it's interesting. Yeah so switching gears a tiny bit I would like to hear about how the new ended up getting your first full-time real position. Yeah absolutely. So it was when our meet up grew so when I met this person a friend. His name is nate a probably. Give him recognition there because <hes> east been so huge in my in my career as a friend and generally slow parental today we kind of joined are meet ups and we grew into this big. Meet Up. And it was like three hundred people. We grew to over three hundred people, and then we. He had connections with someone that was really involved in trying to grow the tech scene in the Central Valley of California. Washable, probably think though in California. It's like tech everywhere. Tech is huge, but that's really isolated towards like Silicon Valley Bay area, and when you go to the outskirts where I live, it's like farms and orchards in just really like farmland in. The outskirts of all the techie over the hill and there's all the big central. Silicon Valley everything like that, but out here it's it's completely different. There's still a lot of factories out here and everything like that, so tech isn't the big thing out here, so he was trying to person. He tried to basically bring tech out this way like hey companies. There's a talent out here as well so he was a part of that big that this big movement. That's still going on today so anyways. We ended up getting a space with his help, and he supported he. He got funding for it and we moved our meet up there. And, we were able to go reach out to the computer. Science professors ask some of the community colleges. They are able to come out. We reached out to people that talk computer science in the high schools I reach people on facebook I went out trying to like introduce myself to all these people, so we can grow all his these groups that are people better in software or coating to hey, come to this, Mita because we can all grow with the tech in the valley, so we had this large event whereas kicking off are merging of our beat ups, and we had I think. Over one hundred fifty people like almost two hundred people from professors in computer science to high school teachers in computer science to people, learning and everything like that so I went up there and I was speaking in front of it, and I was basically motivating other people that were in my position like hey. You guys? Should really you know? I was trying to leaning towards free code camp like if you guys want to learn to cope because those people that were like thinking about it, you know not really that much into it, so I kind of wanted to focus on those people because that's where they had the experience of coming from so was like. Hey, you know it's not that hard to get into it. There's some really really great resources that are free. That doesn't cost anything you know. MEET UPS like this a lot of great connections here and people willing to help you. If you're struggling every twenty five solves talking. They're all that and at that. Meet up was a few other. That worked at companies nearby when Consulting Agency <hes> the the banks have some of their software people out in the Central Valley as well and a couple of of the people that were there were friends with my friend, nate, a one that have basically helped me out and everything that always connections. He introduced me to one of guys there and he said Hey <hes> his company's hiring. I want you. I want to introduce you to Michael and this is after all is kind of getting already getting. Getting experience with building some projects and everything and my friend was like. Yeah, he knows what he's doing now. He he's employable. He's definitely has experience with building front, and back and software and everything so introduced me to a friend of his name of Josh and he worked for a company that basically did consulting for like probations, law enforcement software. They did software for E N NJ Gallo, a lot of big companies, so they're really established there around for like twenty years so I met with him. And then he was like where we're actually looking for someone. More junior developer is like Amir number. We eventually had coffee. Just Kinda. Talk and everything like that and we just hit it off. We kind of our personalities. Kind of you know He. We liked hanging out and everything like that, so that kind of started like a friendship, you know. We talked for about a year and. And you'd help you with stuff like that and I was like. Hey, and he's like our company is kind of in the middle of Lake, you know hiring, but they kinda. Put a freeze on that everything like that, so after about a year when I. When I met him, he finally called me up one day, and the funny story is that I was getting to a point. In in learning how to Code and currently working where I was almost ready to give up, because it felt like I was putting effort and then. I wasn't getting any any reward from like. If I was applying everywhere and I wouldn't get any kind of response to resume. I reached out to people to help with resume all these things. Did I did a lot? Maybe not everything that could have just because I didn't know, but I felt like I was getting any hits on my resume or If I. DID GET A call. It was like you know I didn't know how to do some kind of algorithm that I didn't learn or memorize or whatever it was, so I was getting really discouraged, almost going to be like. Maybe I do need to go to school at unity at degree. Maybe I need to just join a boot camp or or joint something that is going to make me be more appealing to employers so I was looking. and. Just kind of getting really discouraged at that time. But the funny thing is that I got a call for my friend Josh and he goes. Hey, we have this contract coming up. We need to hire a developer and I've been talking to my boss about you and we'd like to bring you on. He's like. Of course we'll interview you and everything like that and he's like. Are you interested in? He's like. Like I'm almost one hundred percent, sure they've we bring you on because you know like I know you and I know your work, and I can help you and everything like that and I was like. Are you kidding me? And when he told me that I was thrilled, I was actually really scared. Same time this is reality is like real software coding. In, part of me was going to say no like I do this. This is too much like the difference between working on side projects that you know like whatever no one's really going to care about versus working on software that people use so I. I got really scared. <hes> I even once. My wife and I was like I. Don't know if I can do this like I'm GonNa. Quit my job and I go do this and then I fail. I can't go back to that job. I can't do that, you know. This is a big decision. You know I've been here for nine years or whatever it was. So ultimately, my my wife convinced me and was like you need to do this. People don't get good things unless they take some kind of risk. Regardless, you should try you know. So I call it my friend. I told him I concerns and Josh was like you know you're just trying to scare yourself out of. It Dude so just take it from me. I'm going to be there to help you, so don't worry us to take this. Just, take it you know and I was like. Okay, let's set up the interview and everything like that and goes all right, so set the interview and. They hired me. And that was basically it I started there with no professional experience. It was all because of someone was willing to help me know again back to that. You know this industry is always really helpful people that are willing to take a chance on you and help me help you and everything, and and and of course there's a lot of challenges you know working in in actually writing real software and everything like that, but in the long run it really helped me in was just huge into getting my job, and then after that first job. Of course, my resume after that just everyone always cared to look at it. You know I I didn't have nearly as. Much difficulty looking for next role after that I think it's like once you get your first job regardless of its junior level, or whatever in in this industry it kind of goes downhill OCTA that you actually get considered. You know you'll get your resume looked at. You'll get that first interview and everything like that. Yeah Wow, so. How long did you work there at the first job? And then what what kind? You don't have to get like super detailed, but like what kind of work redoing essentially. There year, so I started off working on a back end actually of in node framework, or on the no runtime. Basically, the contract was migrating some. It's funny because I went from like barely learning it in writing mostly front end to writing some back in code and the PRI, the contract was basically taking some old enterprise services that were written in Java and then rewriting them on no gs lambda, so that that was what I was doing for like the first four months <hes> and after that contract and they moved on to another. Another project and it was more full stack. It was job script. It was using angular on the front end <hes> no on the back end and <hes> some sequel server, but I got the rightful stack of front end back in using Java javascript note and everything like that. It was really fun. 'cause I got to work on two different big projects <hes> there and I learned so much. That's where my whole stack experience kind of took off I got I got to learn so much and the people that I worked with worse huge. It was just I can't even express how thankful I am to people that I work with there and I still am friends with them. That helped me explained things a broke things down. And having been able to understand these other languages. Yeah Wow and I know you recently got a laid off due to cove in nineteen. was that from this same <unk> employer or was this another job you had gotten after leaving that company? Another story so I was there at that company for about a year, and then towards the end my wife and I found out. We're GONNA. Have Child and so I needed to. That company was great for it was actually a bump in salary than I currently made up. My Company <hes> the light, Bulb Company, but it's I still needed to. I needed to progress I needed to move on and grow my career, and financially so I started to look I started. You know I even asked my boss at the time. I was like Hey <hes>. I have a child, the ways or any chance that I can move up or anything like that, and you give me feedback, and it was like yeah, definitely, in whatever amount of time so I took that and say okay, that's CREPE. <unk> should start looking in see by even get my resume considered now that experience so I started to look, and then I got hired at a start up in the bay area and Silicon Valley. And I was there for almost a year way so i. don't want I. Don't want to interrupt you, but was at working remotely or you move there. I actually had hybrid role, so I would go into the office like an hour and a half commute two days a week. And then worked from home the other days, but yeah, it was a there. I got a taste of the whole silicon valley. Feel of how software companies ran, and my skills went up even higher because of that environment, but yeah, so I was there for about a year and <hes>. It was a startup that wasn't able to get another round of funding, so actually we all. They started laying people off. <hes> fortunately they didn't lay the soccer team like right away, but since we found that out, we started to look all the engineers that worked at that company, or like Oh they're not getting. Funding is a good chance. They're gonNA lay people off, so we all started looking and I got hired at the Credit Union and I. was there for about a year? or about a year exactly actually, and due to the pandemic and everything like that they started to kind of restructure, reorganize everything and effected a lot of teams, including my own team and <hes>. We're a part of that layoffs will. But yeah, it was. It was kind of <hes> something that I. Could. Imagine obviously has affected a lot of people everywhere, and it feels like it's just one of those times. That no-one can have planned for, but yeah. I've been a part of that have been affected by that as well. Yes, so justice like for myself in the listeners, so you basically had three different jobs like intech at this point in each for about a year. Give or take, so you essentially now have like three years of like fulltime software engineering experience. And the most recent position that <hes> you've got furloughed related offer a <unk>. Is that a credit union? And what were you doing there so? It's interesting. 'cause you've such like different experience like from like like a consulting firm to a tech startup to credit union like I imagined that the experiences at each one were quite different like the environment of in the way people work in south. Absolutely <hes> so. Go working at a credit union, it's a pretty large credit union and the way things are done there as opposed to the other companies that I worked at. Worse it significantly different so look the startup that I worked at. They were pretty large. Start up there actually around for ten years they had employed over three hundred people. The engineering team was fifty engineers <unk> people and. They operated like they were a big tech company and everything like that, so but at the same time I had the experience of being able to shift. To project same time like there's times when I was working on a mobile APP and one for one sprint I'd be working on a whole two weeks on a mobile APP, and then I'd be pivoted to work on their web APP, clients. Front end code, and then after that I'd be working on some hardware code completely different working on a proprietary algorithm that needs to be converted in red on a mobile APP. It was different stuff all the time, and it was really exciting, but also really nerve wracking because of the context, switching a lot and learning new languages at the same time. So that was I learned a lot by lot of the fast paced stuff at that start up, and then when I got to the Credit Union. There was a little bit more relaxed because those only one product that I worked on essentially. <hes>. Korb, inking APP and there I had a team of eight engineers that were dedicated for this core banking APP. I got brought on as a senior engineer there, and then that that role kind of pivoted towards a lead developer. I was on that project for about four months. And then my a boss. Promoted to the lead developer of that team so essentially there was a lot different roles because for one it was one project, and it was a mobile APP. I had experience with mobile APP at the other company, but not to this extent, it was just a huge mobile APP. And the primary, the primary objective being handling with people's money was probably a significant factor to the change of of like a importance of the application that part probably. At a lot to the stress when I worked knowing that you're working on something that deals with people's money and five hundred thousand active members <hes> so that was a big learning experience. And I do. I learned a lot of new stuff learned new languages learned how to do a lot of things that you wouldn't typically do web development, but yeah, it was a lot of differences in structure, probably a lot of different departments that you have to work with before you can get approval in changing something like maybe typically and. Change some piece of code that would maybe look slightly different, because it just makes more sense while at the Credit Union. It wasn't that simple. You had to get a lot of approvals and a lot of test. Writing to make sure lingers securer in a rented to different avenues. You know which was different. Yeah, that yeah makes <unk> dealing with financial information. You know sensitive data, and all that would be quite different. I imagined so now that your <hes> you by the time episode airs, you could already be in a new job, but. Being active in your job search now. What kind of company aiming to work out? What do you want to stay in like? The financial industry are trying to go back to a startup or maybe a consulting firm that you get to work all these different projects. Yeah, what were you? What did you like the most I guess? Let's see. Probably a ideally would wouldn't stay in the financial industry just because. All the little differences in how delayed development can be due to all those hoops. You have to jump through, but probably most fun I had was. Working in consulting agency. Because working so many different things. Different projects everything like that, but a lot of them had their own pros and cons. You know in terms of like. What I would prefer probably something that is more established due to. More stability just because of everything. That's going on right now. <hes> I've heard a lot of people have lost their jobs regardless of the industry even in software <hes>, I would probably prefer stability. If I could choose <hes> regardless of the industry but <hes>. Yeah. It's probably it's probably more geared towards that. You know what I can find that it is more stable and everything like that. I do have a few other avenues in alert. You know companies that I'm going through right now so I am confident that something will end soon. That's probably the good part is that they're still a high demand for software engineers and everything like that, so there's a lot of good <hes> a good places that are hiring right now and everything like that. But. They do specific Yeah Yeah Gotcha so I'm. Kind of jumping around here, but I really wanted to ask this question, and it goes back to your glassblowing experience. I was wondering if there was anything from that or your position before a Jumba juice that you. Were able to transfer or in some way to you in your job, your new job as a software developer. Probably the thing that. I don't know if it helped me, but there's a few different things probably so working probably in an environment that required me to have a lot of perseverance, probably aided to my benefit, and in general and just work ethic. It helps me <hes>. To be able to deal with probably stresses and deadlines <unk> Challenges in my current role because I dealt with that a lot on any. Of can can relate to that. Is You know working in a place like that or just any kind of work that requires them to give a little bit extra is required, just laken. Succeed or do well their job. It probably just helps helped with those areas <hes> in work ethic to work hard enduro ally and everything like that <hes>, but also know what I want going forward, and what I don't want in a career or or next role. Also of a big part of that. Working at that company helped me in was. Probably having difficult conversations with my employer I had a lot of those at that company <hes> and it prepared me to be able to deal with those difficult situations. A lot better at all night, other roles a and what I mean, my difficult situations, probably dealing with difficult people <hes> another one being having a conversation with your superiors about compensation <hes>. You know asking for what you feel like. You deserve and everything like that I've had a lot of those, and they didn't go so well at that company that I feel really confident and know how to approach those types of people or Whenever those conversations need to happen, you know. It can be difficult for a lot of people, but I think have so much experience with it that it's. It's kind of more fluid and how to do in the right way. It's aided a lot in that in in my career going forward. Yeah that makes sense and like. I, I can only imagine like the stressors you deal with being in an environment with the glassblowing like Super Hot. You said you were sent home from heat exhaustion, the stress like literally the physical danger bringing yourself. It's like working from home as a software engineer or <unk> star office in Silicon. Valley is like the stress level would be so much less like the. They compare Cinderella the stressors you're dealing with compared to maybe like the ones at the other place. Yeah, like whole other scar accord whole other thing, right? We are like running at time and there's one last question I want to ask before we wrap this out and it's just if you could share any like final advice to people listening right now. Who are just starting out? Maybe they were where you were like. You know four or five years ago. Whenever whenever you got your start. What advice would you give them? All. Let's see so I. Think for one perseverence when things feel like it's difficult, it may be difficult at first, but the more and more you do it in the more and more you practice. You'll eventually understand it some complicated things that I. That I could not have imagined when I first started of doing I'm able to thoroughly explain. They seem like almost simple. Now I think the more and more you do it. The the more natural feel, and it'll be really simple. Just just keep on doing it and things easier. <hes> also in your journey and learning. It's really important to try to reach out to people <hes> to make connections go to meet UPS ask questions. Because those are going to be the areas where where you're gonNA find a connection that can help you find that career and ultimately <unk> successful in in this career field. But those are probably the two biggest ones is. Now I know it's hard at first, but it gets easier, and it gets fun on the challenges they start to face. Get really exciting, and it's really rewarding. Ultimately you know all hard work will pay off as long as you just keep to it. And it will pay off so yeah, awesome, great advice in a great way to end this interview. Thank you so much again for coming on. Where can people find you online? Yeah absolutely. Probably a mitre twitter, a twitter handle is mit p. j are eight eight. Or my website is just a my name, my first name Michael or implemental. Dial my personal, Mitchell my last name.

"Upper delegate sometimes not helpful either. I tend to be at that. So tell me how you get to other people. I was really lucky. I found an assistant whose is amazing and understand me well in so she can sort of interpret what I am saying most of the time so finding people who supplement in your weaknesses is the most crucial thing I can say possibly find people and I would say you have to tell them the eight zero at least tell them. Hey I'm gonNA forget things. Hey I might be late. It doesn't mean I don't care. Make sure they understand why you're doing these things and then why it's so important for them to be rock solid on those things that outweigh you know if we have different weaknesses than we we then we try to think of an analogy if not like a basket right. It's like it it. Holds water is the waves. I'm doing motion with my hands. So the dossier. We can't fight you. Fill in the gaps. That's what I mean the gaps in in different weaknesses. One thing that I had the most fun doing when I was With loyalist more formerly was. I got to write a a post about manager. Read me which is this concept. We won't go into it but broadly speaking. It's about writing a document. Just like a coder or technologist or software developer might rate read me about a piece of software managers right read music that basically say. Here's here's a user's manual to working with me and I not only did I write the post but I got to write my own. Read me and it was really fun and interesting thing And when I gave it to the people reported to me It was really useful because I had there was this level of self awareness to say. Listen this is stuff that I'm really not good at. It doesn't mean you it doesn't mean I'm ignoring you. It means that I'm hung up on it and if you could remind me or if we could manage differently next time or whatever or at least address it Those are things that can make make our relationship better over time and so the idea of a manager read me might be a fun one to think about but obviously you're on your own so you're not writing a manager. Read me really other than taking a great assistant and working. I.

I started out thinking that the best technical solution will win, you know, this product is technically superior to describe that means this is going to succeed, right? And a few years in in my professional career as a software developer. I realized that so much more that Goebbels into this. You know, there's marketing there's does hype. And we as software developers. We pride ourselves as being immune to hype. Right. You can you know? No rational who can't fool us. But in the end like the new database comes out and be go, shiny, Anita. You know, we still fall prey to this hype. And this also goes to show that in the end like the technical advanced product might lose to the thing, you know, that has more marketing or better, documentation, even better, you know, it doesn't have to be bad thing. Like high has this bads connotation, but you know, the thing might be better document has better user experience. And also goes to show that you know, better cold more code is not the most important thing in the world. Absolutely. Well, thank you so much for spending your time with us and sharing all about interpreters and compilers and writing our own languages. They can so much for all that goodbye. Yeah. Goodbye.
