  35. PYCON AU T RAC Y O S B OR N

    @limedaring At the time I thought I wasted my time in university, but having a background in both computer science and design has been a huge benefit in my current career.
  36. PYCON AU T RAC Y O S B OR N

    @limedaring Lessons learned: I had a direct experience with how difficult it is to work with code and the how teaching styles can make a huge difference.
  37. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Speaking of that 
 first job…
  38. DJA NGO CON US T RAC Y O S B

    OR N @limedaring (Let’s talk about 
 the scariest moment in my career.)
  39. DJA NGO CON US T RAC Y O S B

    OR N @limedaring
  40. DJA NGO CON US T RAC Y O S B

    OR N @limedaring 55%

  43. DJA NGO CON US T RAC Y O S B

    OR N @limedaring
  44. DJA NGO CON US T RAC Y O S B

    OR N @limedaring There was no reason to pay me more until I asked for it.
  45. DJA NGO CON US T RAC Y O S B

    OR N @limedaring This moment taught me the importance of — Knowing what you are worth.
  46. DJA NGO CON US T RAC Y O S B

    OR N @limedaring This moment taught me the importance of — Knowing what you are worth. — How to ask for it.
  47. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring So I decided to 
 work for myself

  54. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Lessons learned:
  55. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Lessons learned: Inefficient web apps are OKAY when you’re learning and getting off the ground (as long as there are no security problems.)
  56. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Lessons learned: Inefficient web apps are OKAY when you’re learning and getting off the ground (as long as there are no security problems.) Learn by doing! I learned so much faster by having a real project to work on.
  57. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Lessons learned: Inefficient web apps are OKAY when you’re learning and getting off the ground (as long as there are no security problems.) Learn by doing! I learned so much faster by having a real project to work on. Startups are stressful but if you like having to constantly be learning and doing something different most days, then it’s a fun job.
  58. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Burned out? 
 Let’s write a book!
  59. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring I taught myself how to build a web app using a few online tutorials, but (after I learned) 
 I didn’t like the way it was taught.
  60. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring There weren’t any tutorials that had:
  61. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring There weren’t any tutorials that had: • A customizable tutorial.
  62. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring There weren’t any tutorials that had: • A customizable tutorial. • That was more project-based than theory-based.
  63. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring There weren’t any tutorials that had: • A customizable tutorial. • That was more project-based than theory-based. • That didn’t assume a background in programming.
  64. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring There weren’t any tutorials that had: • A customizable tutorial. • That was more project-based than theory-based. • That didn’t assume a background in programming. • That was small.
  65. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring There weren’t any tutorials that had: • A customizable tutorial. • That was more project-based than theory-based. • That didn’t assume a background in programming. • That was small. • That was good-looking.

    N @limedaring
  67. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring (Was getting tired and burnt out. What to do? Write a book!
 So the university experience combined with teaching myself how to code caused several “a ha” moments in my head.

  71. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Why not get 100% of the royalties? (For a LOT more effort.)
  72. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Turning to Kickstarter
  73. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Threw myself into this without really knowing what I was doing. Building a startup definitely helped here.
  74. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring
  75. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring
  76. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Lessons learned:
  77. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Lessons learned: You got to keep marketing in mind when you build a product. Yes, it sucks. I’d rather build a product than market it.
  78. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Lessons learned: You got to keep marketing in mind when you build a product. Yes, it sucks. I’d rather build a product than market it. Friends are awesome.
  79. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Oh no, now I need to make a book.
  80. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring
  81. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Projects always take way longer than you think.
  82. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring
  83. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Lessons learned:
  84. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Lessons learned: Keep it simple.
  85. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Lessons learned: Keep it simple. Build in a bigger buffer when building something people are waiting for. Better to be early than late.

  91. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Lessons learned:
  92. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Lessons learned: This is where my art background 
 combined perfectly with my techy side.
  93. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring
  94. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring
  95. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring So I wrote more books…

    N @limedaring (Kickstarter)
  97. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Worst part of making a physical book: fulfillment
  98. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring
  99. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring WHY IS SHIPPING HARD.

    N @limedaring
  102. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Isn’t there a better way?
  103. EE CON F T RAC Y O S B OR

    N @limedaring Isn’t there a better way? Spoiler: There was. With programming.
