I enjoy building my resumé, mostly because it’s a way to express yourself before the recruiter even talks with you. We’re extremely lucky to work in a creative field also..we can get away with certain things (colors) on our resumés that other fields cannot. Colors, are argumentative, but I like to use them to draw […]

Developer Book Club – Full List

Earlier this summer I reached out to the Tech Ladies Facebook group and asked for book recommendations for summer reading.  What I was hoping for was a few recommendations to help propel my career and my attitude… What I received was enough recommendations to propel my whole teams career and attitude – it was absolutely […]

Network Sniffing with Fiddler

Now and then when you encounter a problem, you have to put on your Hacker hoodie and just go for it. That’s how I discovered some of the debugging capabilities of Fiddler. As an iOS developer – it’s difficult to capture the network calls your app is making to determine why weird things are happening. […]

Questioning “The Man”

Once upon a time, there was a junior developer, Alex, who was fresh out of college. Alex’s new team was full of people with multiple years of experience. This made the learning opportunity exciting, while also extremely paralyzing with imposter syndrome. Imposter syndrome restricted the junior developer to use only the practices recommended by the […]

Creating an Ergonomic Workspace

Once Upon A Time… In high school, I fell head-first off of a jumping horse. My helmet, (arguably gave me more damage by digging into the dirt) stopped the momentum of my body with my head alone. Although, I was able to walk away, I had severe headaches for weeks following the incident. My frontal-lobe […]

How to Level Up Your Dev Game

A year and a half ago, I was questioning my career as a developer. I love making things, don’t get me wrong, but I was very disappointed with what I was making. Three years of maintaining apps, minimal new features, and all of my ideas were being over thrown. I’d come home from work frustrated, […]

Hey ya’ll! I hope you enjoyed my first robotics post and are ready to start your own! This is an introduction to your Arduino Uno. I am still new to robotics myself, but together we will prevail. I hope to pass on what I know and you can pass on what you know, and soon […]

That Time I Built a Robot

I was always kind of curious about robotics. As a mobile developer, I realize how fast technology changes & understand I might not be working on iPhones in 10 years. I may be working on some kind of software-hardware-Alexa-human-body combination. Who knows. Robots. The wheels started turning back in college. I had a professor who […]

30 Hours in Unity

Recently I was tasked with creating a Hololens prototype in Unity. The only experience I had with Unity was a tutorial 3 years ago where every _single_ step was drafted out. I thought that gave me enough of an introduction to navigate around the IDE without too many tears, so onward I went. Here are […]
