Too many questions. Not enough answers.

I’ve been dealing with the questions above for some time now. As an engineer, I often over-analyze things. I believe there must be a method to the madness. To quote the blind man from that Rush Hour 3 scene in the dojo:

He’s Mi & I am Yu.

It’s a matter of perspective. The key to success lies in finding the right perspective for the right context. …


To understand Solidity, it is imperative to comprehend the context in which it is used. So, the first question to ask is: what is a smart contract?

According to Wikipedia, a smart contract is a computer protocol intended to digitally facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract. They allow the performance of credible transactions without third-parties.

The contracts used in this sense are the exact same as the regular contracts you’re familiar with. By removing the human factor and voiding the need for a third-party, people and business are able to save money and reduce the chance of fraud. …

“Hey, I’ve got this killer idea…promise not to tell anyone? Wouldn’t it be cool if there was an app that did this? Or a website that did that?”

Sound familiar? Whether it was your big idea or a friend letting you in on how they were going to make their millions, we’ve all been there. So, what happens next?

The unfortunate truth that we all know too well is…more often than not, nothing happens.

Ideas are easy. Actually doing it is hard. Very hard. …

Joining is one of those rare full circle moments you get in life. After all, it was at co-founder Richards Simms’ previous company, , that I began my own foray into the world of tech.

And now here I am, nearly two years later, grateful to be a part of his and a diverse family he is once again cultivating.

Hello. My name is Robert Fogarty, and I’ve been here in Atlanta, Georgia since graduating from way back in the winter of 2012. Since then, I’ve worked with a number of different companies on a number of different projects, using a reasonably broad set of technologies. Like so many, I originally started off my career as a Java developer, but I later moved on to Ruby on Rails. …

It started with a tornado.

Or at least that’s the most fun way to tell people why I moved to Atlanta from Chicago in November of 2016. But that’s a story for a different time.

I can honestly say that is the company I’ve been looking for since I began my career in tech almost 10 years ago. Starting at a small e-commerce company () that sold satellite radios as a proxy for SiriusXM, née Sirius Satellite Radio. Fun as it was to work as a customer service specialist in an industry where I had to learn everything from the ground up, (spending time at the studios in Rockefeller Center was the most fun. Word to the wise, do NOT try to sit in Howard Stern’s chair) I wanted more. I wanted to be the one creating the platforms companies used to sell products. …


The untold side of their story. As told by their co-founder, Prem Bhatia.

If 2016 was any indication of what the New Year has in store for , we know it’s going to be monumental. The Atlanta-based startup closed a $500,000 funding round, was one of nine winners who beat out nearly 200 other startups at the Citi Smarter Worklife Challenge and was accepted into prestigious Silicon Valley accelerator, 500 startups. Cooleaf helps companies unleash team’s highly engaged in achieving business goals through a combination of technology, content, and analytics. Their customers include big names like , , , and . It was incredibly inspiring to work with the Cooleaf team and witness their tremendous growth firsthand. Being in an up-and-coming tech hub like Atlanta, we were especially curious as to what their time in the big leagues (San Francisco) had taught them and what lessons other ATL startups can learn from. …

It honestly didn’t matter what the company did. It was dinosaur themed. That was all that was necessary to make me want to work there. Maybe it was a genetics laboratory, with a mission to create dinosaurs from chicken DNA. Or maybe it was a . The possibilities were boundless, but I had to be a part of it. Turns out it was that software thing, which is alright, I suppose.

Having a dinosaur as our logo was apparently more than enough to convince Josh to join us.

Fortunately, I bring with me a few years experience in the Atlanta technology community. I’ve worked on the Support and Operations side of technology companies, including with a startup laboring to bring an amazing product to market and with established companies that were refining existing products and developing new feature sets for their users. I also have an academic background in design and engineering; albeit, it is neither of the software- nor dinosaur-engineering varieties, I’m afraid, and I do not have any experience with genetics, as it relates to either extinct lizards or their modern descendants, chickens. So, perhaps it is for the best that is not a company led by . …


As a kid growing up, which I guess I technically still am, if you’d ever asked me how I would have potentially felt about making it on any Forbes lists, I would have probably said, “Who is this Forbes guy, and what are his lists about? And why would I even want to be included in those?” Because that’s the type of person I have always been.

I have always been the individual to question everything, for better or worse. Sometimes just for the sake of it. So when I found out late last night I had been selected as a , I couldn’t help but question it as well. I guess a part of me felt, in a way, like I wasn’t deserving of such an honor just yet. Words honestly can’t describe how excited and grateful I am for this tremendous opportunity. …


RSpec tutorial. By Rex Petersen.

Coming from the harrowing halls of Java EE, I was at first reticent to truly fall in love with Ruby on Rails and its associated technologies. Easy deployment? Testing Suites baked into the frameworks rather than grafted on a later date? Scalability at a moment’s notice? This shall be the start of feckless ruin!

At , we build through Behavior-Driven Development. BDD came from , and can be accurately summed up as testing from the outside in. We write behavior and specification that then drives our development. We have used RSpec 3 for our recent projects, and I have grown to love it. …
