  • Posted to ASK DN: What do you want to learn in 2016?, Dec 22, 2015

    For next year, my goals are to expand my programming knowledge. So my list is:

    • AngularJS / NodeJS
    • Possibly FramerJS for prototyping
    • PHP & MySQL since it's always used at work
    • Swift and/or Java to program mobile apps natively

    Otherwise, outside of programming, I'd like to continue learning how to sew and improve my Japanese.

  • Posted to They Rejected Us, in reply to Thomas Michael Semmler , Dec 18, 2015

    I agree with this. I didn't know how to word how uncomfortable this site made me feel until you posted this.

    The site is for good intentions to try and cheer up people when they've been rejected, but it still sends that message of "You are only successful and notable if you work in Silicon Valley" which isn't a great message to any designer at any age.

    Maybe feature other stories like "I got rejected from [big tech company], but now I work with [not so notable company] and it's really fulfilling" or something like that. It's much more positive.

  • Posted to "How I’m Handling My Depression (Using an App)", Nov 23, 2015

    I think this is really great he made an app for himself. As someone who personally suffers an anxiety disorder (with depression in tow most of the time), I would love to see the source code for this. If he would be up for making this open-source, I'm sure other developers for mental illnesses could make this personalized for themselves.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Hybrid or Native for Conference App?, in reply to Clark Wimberly , Feb 11, 2015

    That was my thought too. I just want to make sure I'm creating a UI that's natural to use and cross-platform if possible.

    Have you worked with frameworks like Ionic before? I just want to create something that helps me make a great UI with clean, speedy code.

  • Posted to Ask DN: What do you want to learn about in 2015?, Jan 22, 2015

    My main goal for this year is to learn and build web applications using AngularJS and NodeJS. From there, I'll try and build hybrid mobile applications using frameworks like Ionic. Then, maybe sometime this year, I'll go from building hybrid to native apps :)

  • Posted to Ask DN: Moving onto Creative Director/Project Manager roles, in reply to Drew Albinson , Jan 16, 2015

    Excellent idea on creating your own manager/director experience.

    In my position, I was just allowed to train a student worker to help with my projects and relevant support requests. I'm going to use this as a learning experience for management skills, but I'm afraid it's not enough. Is there something more I could be doing?

  • Posted to Ask DN: Which car do you drive?, Dec 17, 2014

    Owned an old 1995 Toyota Camry up until I bought a 2013 Toyota Corolla. It makes my commute less gas-guzzling and it's pretty fancy.

    My dream car, that would not be used for my commute, is a 1968 Chevy Camaro.
