What is your go-to “coding music”? Mine is Tron: Legacy Soundtrack by Daft Punk.

2nd Tennant in a row that we’ve had to evict due to non payment of rent. Being a land lord is hard.

About to watch Infinity War in the middle of the day with my boys. Today is a good day.

I’d say that my least favorite part about software development consulting is writing proposals.

Though they are critical to my sales process, etc… I always feel like they are such a drag and it literally takes me all day to write a proposal that should take 1 hour.

Anyone else?

I have multiple nested "toSort" folders on my Desktop. That's probably not a good sign.

Time for some Spring cleaning!

It's pretty cool to see the Miyazaki films showing at our local theater all year long. I'll definitely be taking the boys to most of these.

We just got done watching A Quiet Place. It was so intense. Such a fun movie to see in theaters.

We got a pretty cool feature the other day on Daily Mail:

New Mexico couple sell their home to travel America in a $33,000 converted school bus with their three children

These things are usually pretty cool except they always mis quote us and “tweak” the details.

I feel like the best way to get the most value from micro.blog, is to just jump in the discover tab and start interacting with random folks. It very much feels like Twitter in the early days (when Twitter was actually useful and interesting).

Anyone else using Jekyll for their micro.blog platform? I have some open source node app to do publishing but doesn’t seem to support media. Looking for suggestions. Thanks!

We just got asked to be on a reality TV show about living on our converted school bus. So… I guess you could say that we have made it.

So, after announcing that I was posting to micro.blog on my main brandontreb.com, I had 79 unsubscribes from my email list.It also might have had something to do with the fact that I hadn’t posted in over a year.Maybe I’m do for the “Sorry I haven’t posted in a while” blog posts.

My wife just crossed 20k followers on her Instagram account @trebventure. She posts photos of our life living on our converted school bus and all of the adventures we take with the family. She’s much cooler than me (especially on the internet)

A Practical Introduction to Blockchain with Python // Adil Moujahid // Data Analytics and more This is one of the most comprehensive tutorials on building your own block chain and learning the underlying technology that I have seen. I absolutely recommend checking it out!

We launched our first every DApp on the Ethereum main net for a client today! This or That? Check it out, answer some questions, and win some ETH!

I had to write a doubly-linked linked-list to represent a priority queue on this project for the first time since college. Guess I'm ready for my whiteboard programmer interview now…

I feel like I need to do a blog series on "getting started" with Ethereum development. The tech changes so frequently and is super scattered around the web. This makes for such a steep learning curve. I would love to contribute my findings to the community. Would anyone read?

Our team has launched our first DApp on the Ethereum test net for a client. Building a solidity / blockchain app has been more fun that anything I have worked on since the early days of iOS dev. I recommend checking out Crypto Zombies if you are interested in learning solidity.
