New (Wrong) Direction

Let’s just say I’m intrigued. In school, have you ever completed a homework assignment, only to realize that the problems you’ve just spent 2 hours solving were not the ones assigned to you? So now you must spend an additional 2 hours solving the correct problem or risk getting a zero. Then after spending the…

Down the stretch

We look to the left, then we look to the right. We then turn on the jets and head to the finish line. Nerves have set in. Did we fix all of the bugs? Will anyone actually download it? Will it work? Will it fail? These are all questions “time” will have to answer. In…

What’s a business card?

Someone handed me a small piece of thick cardboard and said, “Here’s my information.” I took a picture of the card then preceded to throw it away. That small piece of paper is what some call a “business card” and others refer to it as a waste of paper. Within certain industries, I believe we…

Day 8: An applause

I’ve made it. I’ve actually made it. I have written a blog post every single day for a full week. This is a feat that I have never achieved nor had any desire to achieve. But I find it refreshing and inspiring. So I plan to continue. Little did I know that regularly creating posts…

Day 7: Instant gratification

There’s one thing I’ve always wondered: Why do people enjoy earning virtual rewards (i.e. profile badges). In the grand scheme of things it doesn’t mean much. This is often seen in mobile gaming (coming from a self-proclaimed non-gamer). In the past, I feel as if people played games they loved because of the fun it…

Day 6: Deadline, I miss you

If there’s one thing I’ve learned repeatedly is that deadlines are never met. In almost every long term project I’ve been a part of, deadlines are in constant movement. Maybe it’s due to a lack of a full understanding of project requirements by all involved parties. Or it could be due to real-life circumstances (e.g.…

Day 2: He loves me…or not

Our lead developer, Alex, hates me. Or least, I think so. Alex, you should know that I consider myself somewhat of a visionary (as do many entrepreneurs). With that, I often forget about the small details. Like, should a user login before accessing experiences on the app? Or how should the login/registration flow operate? I…

Day 1: It started with just a goal.

Just like that, I came up with a goal. “What is it?,” you ask. Well, I’ve decided, starting today, to write a blog post every single day until launch (and possibly continue afterwards). I will refrain from worrying about length or even grammar. I will just write. I imagine some posts will be about my…
