Rental Cars and Bluetooth - 17 Sep 2018

I recently traveled far as hell and needed a rental car. Since most rental cars are up to date it and NY has a “no cell phone” law while driving (you can’t hold your phone in your hand) I decided to use the Bluetooth option and pair with the car’s onboard audio system, allowing me to play music and get phone calls.

What is Reactive Programming - 02 Sep 2018

I’ve been doing a bunch of interviews lately. In particular I’m interviewing for Android positions (finally). A question that always gets asked is my thoughts on reactive programming. Why?

Intro Into My Research - 10 Aug 2018

As I completed my first year I realized that I am more interested in network security and medical devices. The difference is really looking at the different layers of the technology stack.

Static Hosting on AWS - 07 Aug 2018

I’ve been using AWS a lot more now mostly because I have credits (don’t want to lie to you). If you follow me on social media then you know I recently fell in love with linode for small projects (I also have some credit there), but for things that won’t change such as my personal site and business site I’m going to stick with AWS. This is a guide to remember how to host a site using s3 buckets and route 53. It took me forever to figure out the first time. So let’s begin…
