In the return of Origin Stories I sit down with John Sundell to discuss how he got started in both software development and content creation.

Common Beginner iOS Dev Mistakes - From Sr. Developers (Audio from video)

In this episode I talk about a viral tweet that I posted a few weeks back. I asked developers to share a beginner mistake they had when they FIRST started learning iOS development. I got answers from all kinds of well known developers from major companies. It was a lot of fun to hear that we all start somewhere. My goal for this video was to show beginners that even very senior developers made the same silly beginner mistakes that you are making right now. Again... we all started somewhere. Stick with it.

I'm an Average Developer

My technical skills as a software developer with 5 years experience are average. They're fine. Nothing special, but not bad either. However, I believe I'm a REALLY good overall software developer because of very good soft skills. In this episode I want to discuss that topic for those developers out there who may be self-conscience about their lack (or perceived lack) of technical skills and knowledge. There's a lot more that goes into being a great software developer than just knowing the code. If you like my teaching style, I've released my first iOS dev course which is all about the take-home project job interview for iOS developers.

Developers SUCK at Marketing Themselves - Let's Fix It!

Last year I hired a Jr. iOS Developer as my replacement at a startup I was working at. I had the opportunity to review over 100 submissions for the position, and I got to see first hand how the vast majority of developers REALLY need some help when it comes to marketing themselves. Better Github repositories, resumes, websites, portfolios, app marketing pages, etc... It all needs works. In this video I discuss some of the thoughts after going through the process of hiring an iOS developer.

Origin Stories #27 - Alphonso Sensley - iOS Engineer @ Bank of America

In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with Alphonso Sensley, iOS Engineer at Bank of America. In this story we get to hear about how he worked at Apple retail for a few years before getting curious about building products for Apple devices. He started learning like many of you... YouTube, Udacity, Treehouse, etc... We talk about how he built up a network on twitter and then utilized that network to get his first iOS developer contract and then eventually his first job at Bank of America. We also dive into how valuable mentorship can be for both the mentee and the mentor. Hope you enjoy! Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry. We discuss how they first became interested in code, what resources they used to learn, how they got their first job and much more.

Storytime - From a "No" to a "Yes" to Get My First iOS Dev Job

I tell the story of how I took initiative and metaphorically yanked myself from the "no" pile after my technical interview to ultimately getting the job. You also get to hear about how I walked into my first ever final onsite interview... not even thinking I was going to an interview. Yeah. That happened.

Origin Stories #23 - Freddie Ohen - iOS Dev @ Scribd

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

Origin Stories #14 - Jane Chung - iOS @ Calm

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

The First Month - FINALE - Sage advice for Jr. Devs

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

Origin Stories #13 - Jazbo - iOS @ Glowforge

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

From Learning Swift to AR Startup Founder - Allen Wixted's Story

Many of you are at some point in your journey to learn Swift and iOS Development. Most, like myself, did this with the intention of working for a company as an iOS Developer. Well... there's also another way to do this. You can start your OWN company. I wanted to share Allen Wixted's story because he did exactly that. A little over a year ago he started learning Swift and iOS Development so he could start is Augmented Reality startup called No Place Like. In this interview Allen shares his story on how he got started learning Swift, the resources he used, how he networked and launched his startup. No Place Like is now a part of a Google Incubator in Ireland.

Are you too old to learn to code?
