This is the personal website of Dan Vega, a Programmer, YouTuber, Teacher and Blogger from Cleveland OH. I love learn technologies and share those with others. I have a real passion for teaching others and giving back to the communities that give me so much.
I just wanted to share a vlog that Phil Ebiner put together from his trip to Udemy Live. I also attended Udemy Live this weekend and it was an awesome conference. There is some great behind the scenes action and I might have to take a page out of Phil's book and do something like this when I travel to conferences. Awesome work Phil. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgZyQcDQ0oU[...]
This past weekend I attended a conference called Udemy Live in San Francisco. The main purpose of the conference was to bring together all of the instructors so that they could meet each other as well as many of the Udemy team members. Udemy is building a business along with their instructors so it was nice for everyone to just get together and confirm that we were all indeed real and not robots. There was about 160 instructors from all over the world and I am really glad to say that I was 1 of them. Friday, June 24: Reception at Udemy Offic[...]
I really enjoy Pat Flynn's podcasts and I would say it's been one of my most valuable resources as I venture into the world of Passive Income. If you haven't had a chance to check out the Smart Passive Income Show I highly recommend you do. In this episode Pat interviews Ankur Nagpal who is the CEO of Teachable. Teachable is a great platform that allows you to self host your courses. Unlike other platforms like Udemy there is no marketplace for courses and gives you full control over your content and students. In this interview they discusse[...]
I have been doing a lot more work with JHipster lately so expect a lot of little tips and tricks posts on here. In this short post we are going to look at how to tell what version of JHipster you're running and how to tell if there are updates available. If there are updates available you will wanna upgrade to the current version. This is not a tutorial on upgrading a current application from one version to another as there is a little more work involved in that. To tell what version of JHipster you are running simply open up command prompt [...]
This week is the big Apple Developer conference WWDC. If you weren't able to make it you can still watch all of the presentations on Apple's Developer portal. I started watching a couple presentations last night and so far they have been high quality in production and content. I am really looking forward to going through more of these. https://developer.apple.com/videos/wwdc2016/ [...]
This is exciting new for all of us who can't attend WWDC next week in San Francisco. Apple revealed yesterday that it is going to livestream the Keynote that will take place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Apple is expected to unveil iOS 10, OS X 10.12, and so much more if the rumors are true. There is an events page setup where you can watch live stream at http://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2016. In the past you had to have Safari or ios to be able to stream the event but even PC fans can join the fun with Microsof[...]
In a pretty big announcement this morning Udemy announced their app is available for Apple TV. This is pretty big because for me it just gives students another way to consume content. As a student I could see myself sitting in the living room with my laptop and taking a course while being able to take notes or actually walk through code samples at the same time. As a teacher I am really excited for this because I think it helps open up my courses to more students who might not of known they existed before. If you're new to Udemy or already h[...]
