The Course Hustle
This week, still recuperating, I walk you in detail through what it took to put together my latest Bootstrap 5 Essential Training course. I talk about adding a 15% challenge of something new in every project...which sometimes balloons to like 40%, but once you're committed, you can't stop...won't stop.
The One Two
This week, I talk about the one two punch I got from the Covid vaccine which really set me back with my extra video tutorials. Plus, I talk about my new React with Hooks/ Tailwind CSS Course. My upcoming Bootstrap 5 course and what I'm doing afterwards.
The Junior Developer
This week, I talk about when you can call yourself a Junior Developer, which I really struggled with how to answer. Plus I just finished the largest course I do, you get to see one of my two favorite games and a peek at my ridiculously complicated video setup.
This week, I talk about the large amount of code people copy from Stack Overflow and a recent ruling from the US Supreme court that makes it a-ok.

The Power of the Story
I attended a ClubHouse event last week with some high profile Engineering Hiring Managers on the topic of getting a job in Technology. I had a chance to ask them a question: Tell me about an instance when someone really impressed you during an interview. I didn't expect the reply, but I should have.
Spending Time to Make Time
Need a little more time on your day to get things done? Sometimes the best way to make time is to spend some time. In this edition of my weekly newsletter, I talk about some of the things that help me fit more into my schedule as a developer with a bonus video highlighting several tools I use to start new web development projects.
Make it Small
I was recording a course last week when I ran into an unsurmountable problem. You know the type where you think: I have no idea why this isn't working or how to solve this. Here's how I solve the big..and small problems.
