In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with Jane Chung, iOS Engineer @ Calm. This was a really fun episode because I've known Jane for a long time now, as she was my partner throughout the iOS Development bootcamp we did back in 2015. It was fun to look back on the app we built together during that bootcamp. Jane then moved on to be one of the fist full-time mobile engineers at Coinbase where she converted the app from Objective-C to Swift and rode the crazy crypto wave of 2017 all the way to Coinbase being the #1 app in the App Store for a period of time. Lots of war stories there... After leaving the crypto space, Jane is getting ready to embark on her next chapter as an iOS Engineer at Calm. Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry. We discuss how they first became interested in code, what resources they used to learn, how they got their first job and much more.

Back in January of 2019 I put out a video (link below) asking people who had never had an iOS Developer job to apply for a new position at the startup I'm work at, Aluna. When I started my career someone took a chance on me when I wasn't quite ready, and it launched my career. I wanted to do the same for someone else. That someone is Chris and we sit down and recap his third week on the job as a Jr. iOS Developer. We talk about his impressions of startup life in San Francisco, what he worked on this week, as well as some thoughts on how having mentorship has drastically increased his skills in just a few short weeks.

In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with Jazbo, iOS Engineer at a 3D Laser Printer company called Glowforge. I was thrilled to finally get to sit down with Jazbo and hear his story. It was fascinating to hear how he grew up in Jamaica and never touched a computer until he was a teenager. After college he decided he wanted to learn software engineering and started watching videos online, which led to him joining the developer community on twitter. Through this network, he was able to land his job at Glowforge. Be sure to stick around for the end of the episode where we have a great discussion about how people have different hurdles in their path to becoming a software developer. Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry. We discuss how they first became interested in code, what resources they used to learn, how they got their first job and much more.

In this episode of Origin Stories I speak with Kaya Thomas, iOS Engineer at the mindfulness app, Calm. I got to meet Kaya in person a few weeks ago when we both gave talks at iOSCon 2019 in London. In this story we get to hear about how Kaya discovered coding while editing MySpace pages back in the day, which led to her trying out a intro to programming class in college. Her amazing networking led to some key internships at Intuit and Apple, and she ultimately landed her first iOS developer job at Slack here in San Francisco. Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry.

Back in January of 2019 I put out a video (link below) asking people who had never had an iOS Developer job to apply for a new position at the startup I'm work at, Aluna.

That someone is Chris and we sit down and recap his first week on the job as a Jr. iOS Developer.  Check back next week for Episode 2!

Origin Stories is a series of interviews with iOS developers from the community where we discuss how they got their start in this industry. We discuss how they first became interested in code, what resources they used to learn, how they got their first job and much more.

Thanks for joining the March monthly live stream. I'll be talking about how the final interviews went with the Aluna iOS Developer candidates as well as some tips if you're ever in that situation. I'll be answering interview related questions as well. I've got a few other random updates, and as always.... your iOS Dev Q&A! Join the discussion! We do these the first Sunday of each month @ 9am PST.
