Do you feel the urge to always check on your new feed with the thought of finding something interesting? Well, I feel that way most of the time and it’s become a bit unhealthy for my brain. The first thought I usually have when I want to escape the daily grind is...

GETTING TO AND MAINTAINING ‘INBOX ZERO’

Feb 3, 2014   |    #email    #processses   

One of the main activities that I am very fond of these days is design. Especially designing and optimizing my activities. I’m tackling the small issues first to get the hang of fixing things. One of these so-called activities is ‘dealing with my email’. Some people believe that email is broken. Well, I am now convinced that we’re the ones that are broken (or at least I’m the one that is broken). I’ve relied too...

DESIGN ADVENTURES: FIXING MY LIFE

Feb 3, 2014   |   

For the first blog post for the year (after much thought and deliberation), I decided to write about my decision to learn how to design. From this point on, I’m dedicating this blog to capture the events, changes, learning and tools that I will encounter on my journey. It doesn’t mean that I’ll stop being a programmer. It just really want to learn how to design and that I’m finally driving my career the way...

APPCELERATOR TITANIUM: LOCALIZATION AND JSS

Oct 5, 2013   |    #appcelerator    #css    #fromzerotohero    #javascript    #jss    #sublime    #text    #titanium    #studio   

I’ve recently re-evaluated my career path and realized that transitioning to a full UX role right now will not only be impractical, but will also take too much from my time and resources. I’ve decided that moving into mobile development will be a much better transition instead. I’ve been dabbling with Apple’s XCode (for objective-C) and Appcelerator’s Titanium Studio. I’ve barely scratched the surface with these two platforms, but for now...
