Dev Japan's Organizers

If you're reading this you more than likely know who I am and most likely know what Dev Japan is. If you need a refresher, check this earlier post I made. "Dev Japan & Design Japan". This time I'd like to finally introduce the organizers of Dev Japan. Guy's and gal's who have been a tremendous help in running the community and making it even more successful.

I Failed an Entire Semester Because I Hated Writing

You know how university works. You do your best and try and get that magic 4.0. But I went to school on a full-scholarship. Shout out to the NACME program.

I don't have as much on me as some, but I think I have more on me than most. My first was a tribal black panther on my back. My second was the words "Dream Chaser", which I got on my right chest plate a week or two before moving to Japan. (a dream come true for me). Since I've been in Japan I've had a infinity li

How to Take Selfies While Coding

Well if your a bit vain, like me, this might be a topic you're interested in. How do you capture memories of your work while working. The best answer I've found is lolcommits. lolcommits, when set up, will take a selfie of you whenever you commit your work. You are using a code repository like github or gitlab aren't you? I recommend you using something like lolcommits whenever you can, especially if you work in a team. You can make a nice presentation to show all the emotions you go through whi
