I have a background in digital agencies, which didn’t offer much opportunities for great projects; so in the beginning of 2014, I started working on my own startup, Style InCities, which is a photo sharing app for fashion enthusiasts. Besides the social aspect, I also built an advanced photo editor, utilizing the graphics card of the iPhone to apply effects. Another great project I have built from scratch and am especially proud of is HealthLinx, a social network for doctors (HIPAA compliant) and their staff which enables them to share information about their patients, create groups and group chats. Since mid 2016, I have been working on another startup, Movez, which is an event-based social network. I co-founded the project with someone I met on Codementor. Originally Joshua Hollis asked me to help him solving few issues on the app and on our second session we talked a little bit more about their business plans and it turned out to be so exciting I accepted the offer to become a technical co-founder and early investor in the app.
I love Swift (who doesn’t?) for its brevity, safety, and flexibility. It also looks beautifully clean, which is important to me. When I work on iOS projects, I prefer using Storyboards/XIBs for the design parts and I am a big fan of auto layout. In the past few years, I have become a strong proponent of Firebase, which brings some vital features like realtime and offline, and offers a lot of flexibility and high performance (if you know how to take advantage of this technology).
Building rockets to Venus and Mars.
Think critically, think for yourself – by my high school physics teacher.
Man up and get a job! I think that even back then, I would have been able to land a job with enough courage and ingenuity.
It’s the startups – Movez, Instarly and Style InCities. It just bonds people together when they have a common purpose and share on the success. Also, on Codementor, I have developed friendships with many of my clients and mentees. Since relationships on Codementor are so personal, you’ll never feel alone as many developers do.
I remember a simple shoot ‘em up game I created. No coding miracle by any measure.
Xcode, Sublime Text, Chrome Browser, Zoom, Gmail and of course Terminal! My super-duper overpriced custom MacBook Pro 15” 2014 is my weapon of choice. It is my life.
People who take challenges inspire me. I don’t mean the ice bucket types of challenge. I mean challenges like colonizing Mars, Bitcoin, or Internet for Everyone.
