Taking this week away from my computer and work on our vacation is a good reminder of the importance of stepping back and taking time to relax. I find it’s usually in these times I find my best ideas and inspirations. 💡💻📚

Reminder: don’t ever apologize for going after your dreams just because they are too big for some people to understand 💡💻 Put your head down and do the work and let your actions speak for themselves 💯

Why did you learn how to code? Or why are you learning how to code? I want to know your stories to why you decided to learn this super power. For me it was all about the freedom it brought. 💻💡

🔥 Do you use Xcode? 🥳
📲 Today I want to show you an example of what you can do with the Swift language. In the video, I'm showing you the Flappy Bird App. It's not one of my projects; I want to show you an example of the power of Swift. It's also fun to code in Swift, don't worry. If you want to see other exciting projects, you can check my bio link. In the video, I show you how you can clone it. Enjoy!!
🚀 Do you want to see other videos about my own Projects?? 😬

3 ways to make an extra $100 using your skills...👇🏼
1. Create a mini project that's extremely practical and saves YOU time or energy. Use it yourself for a while to make sure everything works correctly. Find someone else that wants the same convenience you have, and charge $100 to make a replica of your mini project for that person.
2. Find a stressful/hard/annoying task, and find a way to make it either automated or easier for you to finish. Do that task for someone else for $100.
3. 90% of the offers that come into my inbox are NOT good offers. This means you DEFINITELY have a chance to stand out to business (especially small ones) if you make them a great offer. Find a way to help small businesses, and make an offer that's worth $100.
Remember, whether you're making $100 from a business or a friend, ALWAYS DELIVER. If someone decides to give you their hard earned cash, take care of them. Over deliver. Do this, and you'll get more $100 offers.
Which would you try first: 1, 2, or 3?

3 things you need in a good cold email....👇🏼
First, a cold email is when you email someone that you haven't met in person, but would like to potentially work with in some way.
𝗜𝗻𝗰𝗹𝘂𝗱𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘀𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗱 𝗲𝗺𝗮𝗶𝗹:
1. Make your first few sentences about WHY you're reaching out to that person. One thing that will turn people away is having to figure out why you're emailing them.
2. Include a little bit about yourself. If you're looking to get hired/paid by someone else, have a few sentences that highlight WHY that person should hire you, meaning list your best, most relevant accomplishments in a few short sentences. If you're looking for a new client, talk about how you will help that person.
3. Always end it with something like "Looking forward to hearing from you!" I would NOT recommend using "Let me know...." as it's easier for the person you're emailing to decide not to respond.
I got so many questions about cold emailing after yesterday's post. So I will make a video with more tips and examples!
Which are you going to use: 1, 2, or 3?

Happy Monday! Extra happy this Monday because Paul and I are doing a little get away this week. We were initially supposed to go somewhere warm 🏝 but because Paul needs to still be working this week it didn’t make sense (life of an entrepreneur means sometimes you have to pivot as things come at you 😆). So we are going to do a 4 day trip around Ontario to different spas and relax. And I couldn’t be more excited to get out of the city for a while and put the 💻 away!

Banyak di luar sana yang masih menganggap domain adalah sebuah pilihan sampai pada akhirnya harus gigit jari karena kehilangan nama kesayangan yang ingin dimiliki pada bisnisnya karena di dahulukan orang lain.
Ada juga akhirnya harus menganti nama dan mencari alternatif nama lainnya. Padahal sudah melakukan melakukan kegiatan branding dan mempersiapkan hal yang mendukung nama yang kamu inginkan.
Jadi sepenting apa sih?
Penting banget pastinya. Bahkan ketika kelupaan untuk memperpanjang domain juga harus berhati hati loh. Tahu - tahu bisa di ambil orang. Hmm mau ga tuh?
Jangan sampai seperti itu ya.

It’s like 3am and I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since I Started my journey as a Software Developer. I want to share things I wish I knew when I started programming:
- Communication. It’s something I have never been good at. TALK to people, absorb information, ask experts about their mistakes and best practices. Twitter and Github work good for that.
- Try to build an application from the scratch and try to make it live. It’s probably will be full of bugs, the overall performance will be bad, but you will cover all the main prospects of development and gain some entrepreneurial skills.
- Read others code. Try to avoid writing shitty code that freshmen could possibly replicate.
- Open your first Pull Request and try to get it merged. If you have some spare time make sure to contribute to open source projects, usually the community is amazing and it’s a good chance to find a mentor.
- Take care of your mental health. Don’t get discouraged by failures And try not to stress too much. Do not compare yourself with others, everyone have a different journey.

Attending Tech Conferences 👩🏻💻📈
There are numerous reasons why it makes a lot of sense to visit #Tech conferences, I think I will write about this next time, but today I would like to discuss how actually get to start attending conference and the ways to fund them.
Well, its not a secret that visiting a conference can be quite pricey.
Firstly, my suggestion is to make a research about conferences based on you field of interest weither its #frontend, #ui, #backend, #infrastructure, #bigdata, #kubernetes etc.. Choose one and stick to it.
Secondly, there are 4 main ways to fund your tech journey. 👩🏻💻 Funding yourself. As a student or lecturer you usually get a nice discount.
👩🏻💻 Apply for an attendee scholarship. It is a really common practice especially if you are a student.
👩🏻💻 Convince your Boss to fund you, especially if this conference is related to what you are actually doing at your daily job.
👩🏻💻 Become a speaker. Yes, in most cases you are able to submit you speech and consequently get a free pass
