tech magazine

Hiya! 

I started writing for an online tech magazine about interesting tech startups. When my articles are published I’ll try and link them here as well. It makes it easy because I don’t have to write original content on two different pages ;)

Olloclip Studio for IPhone 6 Plus And IPhone 6s Plus

We came across an Olloclip lens a couple of years ago and we were amazed at the difference that a single detachable lens could produce via the iPhone’s camera. So, when this came out, we were obviously excited to share it with you. Presenting the Olloclip Studio for iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6S Plus.

Polaroid Cube

Unconventional design is not the only advantage of the Cube. It is packed with functionality. It is shockproof and water resistant, very rugged and durable, but it also provides you with 1080p HD video, 6MP photo quality with 124° wide angle lens.

Crosley Revolution Portable Turntable

The Crosley CR6020A Revolution is nothing like its big brothers because of several things. First of all, it’s very compact, measuring only 10.9 x 3 x 4.1 inchesand weighing only a pound and a half. This and the addition of a carrying handle at the back side of the turntable allows you to take it with you without difficulty. However, such a small size comes with a price because this turntable is not equipped with a built-in speaker like most of other Crosley turntables are.

I've learned some HTML and CSS on CodeAcademy, but now I have no idea what to do. I wanna do programming, scripting or coding. What do you suggest I start out with and where to learn it online?

Hi there!

I would exhaust the free online resources as much as you can. Read web development/design magazines and blogs. Download tech podcasts. Try to immerse yourself as much as possible. Nothing you learn will be superfluous; it all helps to build up your vocabulary, which will make learning in the future exponentially faster.

First, try out Ruby. Ruby on Rails is a fairly hot full-stack framework. You’ll be able to do cool stuff like build your own Twitter or Blog or Reddit in a super short amount of time.

This short tutorial lets you try out Ruby for free: http://tryruby.org/

And Codecademy has a free course —

Learn Ruby: http://www.codecademy.com/tracks/ruby

Another really great resource is the Flatiron School’s open source Pre-Work for their Web Dev/iOS immersives. Essentially, they ask students to complete all of this pre-work before beginning their 12-week courses. Much of it is free, but a few subjects require a Treehouse or Code School account. These are pretty inexpensive services, less than a programming book. I highly recommend them, especially Treehouse.

You can see the Pre-Work here: http://prework.flatironschool.com/

If you want to try Treehouse, this link will get you 50% off your first month.

The Pre-Work is divided into Web Development or iOS Development tracks, so pick the one that interests you most, or do both!

I’d recommend learning some JavaScript since it’s essential to know if you want to be a web developer. I’d also recommend building a few sites and playing around with jQuery plugins to learn through trial and error.

I think Learning By Doing is the best way to learn, so the online resources that let you actually build things along with the instructor are SO much better than a dry programming book. Leave the dry books for when you need to delve into a topic on a deeper level. Not for starting out.
