  • So I dove into the C# language and wanted to hack something practical together, so I created a quick and easy tool to help blast out your resumes to companys using ZipRecruiter. If you watch the QuickerRecruiter video on my page , you'll see that I explain how I've gotten a ton of responses to this applciation asking for additional information. Its hella useful and it definitly helped me on my job search. The resume blaster essentially churns out all the possible links on the website and clicks through - sending your resume. The resume blaster only sends resumes to links that

  • I should say that over the last few months I've hacked into my brothers guitar case and started learning how to play his acoustic. Growing up in a deaf household, I wasn't really encouraged to try and understand music. Learning this instrument definitly helps you appreciate music as a whole and the friends that I've reached out to have been more than helpful in teaching me how basic theory works such as chord progression and other small tips. I'm not at the stage that I can play a full song, but I'm trying to get there. Its a whole new

  • I'm so excited to say that I just accepted an offer at a medical engineering company as their software developer. I'll be working on implementations and interfaces for their product and will code primarly in Java, which is right up my alley. This title has been saught after by me for the past few months and its so great to finally be able to claim it as my own. The company essentially makes a sort of self-contained pharmacy that contains and dispenses prescription drugs to help patients as they say get better quicker. I'll be starting this position in a

  • Career

    As a recent graduate at the University of Minnesota, starting a career as a junior Android dev is of the highest importance to me right now.

    Experience

    I have about three years of Android framework experience under my belt. I first started programming for smartphone and tablet devices as a hobby where I dedicated an entire winter break from college to develop a basic application. Now, I have twenty different apps made with a truckload more in the design and production phases. Check them out on the playstore or at my portfolio page .

  • Earlier in the week, I decided to work on a twitter bot, an automated posting robot that would put things onto twitter. After a few hours, I managed to follow guidelines in order to create such a program. If you are interested in the code, please dont hestitate to ask. It runs arguments or inputs from a text file and is ran from the command shell. After a few hours of tinkering, I managed to add an additional function that essentially negates the double posting preventative measure that Twitter has. To prevent twitter from double posting, you want to add

  • So right now I've been working on using PRAW, a Python Reddit library that reads subreddits and comments from the popular link aggregator, Reddit. The goal of the project is to make my Twitter more lively by submitting top headlines (1000+ upvotes) to be posted on my twitter account. I will post the source code on the github account for those who want to use the code I made as well and make it easy for interested parties to do the same. I will try and make the code editable and explainable so even your mother could sit down and

  • So right now I'm stressing out about graduating from the University and just finished working on my senior project and I realized just how much developing and creating a great user experience means a lot for me. I come up with more than a handful of practical ideas for applications to help people in some form or another and this feedback keeps me going. It's tough trying to understand the self, but with all of the quick coding that I do - why wouldn't I try and figure myself out? Read further if you care about about fizzbuzz.

  • So I'm not even sure how it worked (I'm actually pretty confident actually how) but I got more than six figures ... thats 100,000+ user installs on my android applications that are posted on the Google Play store. This landmark wasn't passed today. It was passed about half a year ago. If you are interested in any published android applications of mine , which they are all unique to some extent, feel free to check them out at the store. As of the time of this posting, only one paid one of them has earned me any money. I wanted to just

  • Today is the day that I mark down that I completed my 160 hour summer internship alongside the brilliant scholars over at the Center for Homicide Research . These volunteers work painstakingly doing the research that no one else seems to want to do. My developmental duties had me writing down grant proposals and completing letters of intent to procure grant money for the nonprofit. I also generated non-grant money for the non profit through a gofundme account. I also executed my duties as the only marketing and public relations intern as well by making an infographic that I suggest you

  • Popularized by Inception, lucid dreaming is still considered to be a work of fiction that no one can truly achive. I want to just help those who want to help themselves to enjoy this sort of perfected virtual reality within themselves. There are communities of lucid dreamers that get together and talk about techniques and ways to achive them on reddit but they only have beginners, I further share what tricks I did when first starting out below.

  • So I posted an android app on the market called Amazing Honks Professional and its reached the 100-500 download threshhold as well as many 5 ratings. While its not really a secret as to what the app does (it honks), it has a randomization script in it so the user can hear different pitches and a secret song for users who really enjoy it.

  • MY first legitamate post will be around on how to cheat the system of Okcupid and any other similar dating sites. I will focus on OkCupid primaraly since it was the first one and possibly the easier of the dating websites code to break. This script will work until OkC changes how the layout of the website changes.
