The journey of Startup Weekend Nassau began when The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) approached Shift The Culture to collaborate on this project with them a few months back.
A recent post by a fellow StartupBus alumni inspired me to write a log on what competitors and the general audience can expect for members on Starter Island.
I was fired once about three years ago. Easily, the lowest point of my life at the time but it turned out to be one of the biggest learning experiences of my career.
I’ve been busy the last few months. In my early career as an independent consultant and contractor, I’ve met some notable and insightful lows with my highs. One of the biggest lessons can all be summed up into one general thought. How can I get better?
Last week I had an amazing opportunity to help organize BETA Camp; a week long camp that introduces junior high school students to a high level view of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) disciplines.
I’m back home refreshed and energized from my time at Front End Design Conference in St. Petersburg, Florida. I was lucky enough to speak about my experiences working remote back home in The Bahamas. A part of the talk discussed some of the tips and tricks I’ve learned while trying to improve my workflow to be more efficient.
The time finally came. After a few months playing the waiting game, the dreaded email popped up in my inbox. To say I was surprised at the outcome wouldn’t be completely true.
As I’m about to go on StartupBus for the 2nd year in a row, I can’t help but think of all the experiences I’ve had with the startup culture. I’m fortunate to have had the opportunities to really get involve in the tech community since then and it has been an amazing experience.
In our industry, we’re blessed with the gift and curse of continuous learning. There are a few resources and tricks I’ve picked up along the way that helped me learned a lot about the craft. I’ve decided to touch on just a little portion of what I do on a daily basis in order to stay in the loop and learn something new.
As a creator of the web, there are two things I am constantly thinking of: finding things that inspire me and also perfecting my workflow. That inspiration might be a new tool, framework or technique to use in a project. Above all I’m always trying to define a process that I can use to effectively do work.
