TLDRToday marks a temporary pause of the AllWebSD.com Podcast as I go head first into figuring out what on Earth Web3 is all about. I’ll be in the trenches of code once again and when I come up for air, I’ll be sure to come back through audio to give back my findings.Red PillLet’s face it…the web is once again in transition. The meta verse, cryptocurrency, the blockchain, NFTs and more. It’s a bit murky for me at this point when I hear these buzzwords but my curiosity is leading me back to the sandbox to go play. I’ll be suspending this project for the near-term but when I come back, rest assured it will be another 5 episode season, which, for better or worse, spotlights my findings on what I’ve stumbled upon with Web3.Special ThanksAll things considered, I hit 40 episodes in total. Awesome! A big thanks goes out to all of my previous guests, to the San Diego Tech Hub community for giving this domain a place to call home and to you, the listener, for giving this podcast a chance.As a token of my appreciation, the following gifts are linked below: Receive $10 in Bitcoin when you buy or sell $100 or more on Coinbase.Get a $10 cash back reward in Maiar when you buy eGold.---Thanks again for listening in.

IntroductionI need to put a break tag on my HTML to get this message off the ground.At the time of this recording, it’s been a little over two weeks since Russia’s initial invasion of Ukraine. Officially, Wikipedia notes the start of this conflict as Thursday, February 24th. Why this one hits home for me is that in my work experience as a web developer, I’ve had the pleasure of working with several Software Developers, QA Engineers and Product Owners of Russian, Ukranian and Belarusian heritage and they all have voiced a similar opinion. They stand with Ukraine. And I do as well.If you’re sitting behind your keyboard right now with headphones on sitting state-side in the continental US, it might be hard for you to fathom what on Earth is really happening minute-by-minute. I’m certainly struggling. On my end, I’m trying to empathize with as many frames of reference that I can muster and here’s how I’ve given myself some context in how to better relate to this global event.Frame of ReferenceAccording to Google, Ukraine is about the size of Texas.Ukraine’s entire population as of 2021 has 41+ million people. California has 39+ million people (2019 statistic).Imagine that on a daily basis, this is 9/11 occurring at any given moment and you don’t where the planes are headed (I really grit my teeth with this one, but it had to be said). I could go on and on about how to make this hit home, but I think you get the theme. A big thanks goes out to my work colleagues, both past and present for providing this list.Ways to HelpReach out to your congressional district and ask for tougher sanctions against Russia. Visit this link and enter your zip code.Discovery TV has partnered with Save The Children to provide critical support for those impacted by this crisis.San Diego based GoFundMe has curated its top list of fundraisers supporting the individuals and families seeking shelter, security and peace.Hashtags actively being used at this time: #standwithukraine#standforukraine#supportukraine#stopthewar#ukraine---Thanks again for listening in.

IntroductionMeet Tiffany, Senior Product Designer at AliveCor Inc. and an old coworker/friend in a previous startup life! Today we’ll be going head first into the idea of gender in the modern day world and how that may redefine how we move forward building out our digital experiences.Highlighted TopicsBeyond ‘he’ and ‘she’: The rise of non-binary pronounsWhat’s outside of male and female?Where does removing/updating the gender form field come into play?What/how does that impact…the user experience?the impact on data collection?the impact on business?"Neither end of the [male/female] spectrum is a suitable way of expressing the gender I am," Wilson says. "Sometimes I feel 'feminine' and 'masculine' at the same time, and other times I reject the two terms entirely." - BBCConclusionWe’ll stew on this for a moment and follow up at a later date.

Dear Gen Z,I hope this voicemail finds you well. Hey look…the reason why I’m calling today is because I wanted to speak to those of you who have logged off from this oversaturated tech world. I’m inspired by an article from The Guardian, which sheds light on a growing trend of young people who have consciously abandoned social media. I’m looking to simply understand. I’d like to understand what the positives are for saying sayonara to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok. I could easily come up with reasons why I’d abandon it. Yes, I’ve thought about it multiple times and at minimum I’ve already removed most social media apps from my phone. Thanks Digital Minimalism. And as a young father squinting at the ingredients list of these digital jelly beans, it extends my curiosity. Furthermore, I’m looking to forecast alongside you on what the world may look like as we move forward with our pocket-sized super computers.Let it be known that this channel is a safe space, not dependent on any social media metric such as likes, follows or comments. It is very much dependent on you and your sincerity throughout. So if you have a few minutes, and would like to go on the record to speak of a topic which may be corollary to mental health, cyber bullying, privacy and more, please don’t hesitate to give me a buzz.Thanks and Aloha.---Thanks again for listening in.

IntroductionThe goal for this season of AllWebSD is to deconstruct lessons learned from going head first into data structures. It’s my hope that I can translate a complex topic into an easy-going format and I’ll do so by channeling my inner 10-year-old self. You see back in my day, I was a big fan of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series. So I’m going to take snapshots from that show and brush it with some code.Information on data structures are abundant. To be honest, you don’t have to invent this. And frankly, neither did I. Hence, the code is pre-baked and available on Github.The additional and intentional challenge here is that this is in audio only. If you can follow along, awesome. But remember, the source code is on the repo. I’ll upload a video as well, just in case.That said, are you ready? Alright then. It’s Morphin Time!The SituationWe need DinoZord power now!Recall from our last episode that we’ve reprioritized the emergencies based on our priority queue. Now it’s time to call on the power of MegaZord by assembling the DinoZords. We’ll do so with a stacked data structure.This introduces us to the concept of LAST IN FIRST OUT.The Data Structurefunction createStack() {// Store our items in an array held in closure.const stack = [];// Return our stack as a plain JS object.return {// Place new items at the end of the array.push(x) {stack.push(x);},// Remove the final item in the array. This ensures order is maintained.pop() {if (stack.length === 0) {return undefined;}return stack.pop()},// Return the last item in the array.peek() {if (stack.length === 0) {return undefined;}if (stack.length === 5) {return 'MegaZord activated!';}return stack[stack.length - 1]},// Use a getter ensures we always get the current length.get length() {return stack.length;},isEmpty() {return stack.length === 0;}}}ConclusionThat’s it! I hope you enjoyed learning about data structures with a mighty morphin twist. Let me know your thoughts on this choice thus far and other paths that could’ve been considered.---Thanks again for listening in. Remember, I’m here to foster innovation through conversation.

It’s Morphin Time!The SituationRecall from our last episode that Rita threw her magic wand down from the moon and it looks like she sent Scorpina to do her bidding. And yikes, she’s 300 feet tall.The Data StructureIt’s time to introduce our priority queue.function createPriorityQueue() {// Make two queues held in closure to determine priority.const highPriorityQueue = createQueue();const lowPriorityQueue = createQueue();return {// Set high priority to false by default. Ternary operator will determine if it's high/low priority.enqueue(item, isHighPriority = false) {const queue = isHighPriority ? highPriorityQueue : lowPriorityQueue;queue.enqueue(item);},// Make sure high priority queue is emptied first BEFORE attempting to dequeue from low priority queue.dequeue() {if (!highPriorityQueue.isEmpty()) {return highPriorityQueue.dequeue();}return lowPriorityQueue.dequeue();},// Similar to dequeue(), let's peek from the high priority queue first.peek() {if (!highPriorityQueue.isEmpty()) {return highPriorityQueue.peek();}return lowPriorityQueue.peek();},get length() {return highPriorityQueue.length + lowPriorityQueue.length;},// Conjunction of our 2 queues.isEmpty() {return highPriorityQueue.isEmpty() && lowPriorityQueue.isEmpty();}}}ConclusionScorpina is 300 feet tall. We can’t do this alone. We’ll need DinoZord power. Join me in the finale where we introduce MegaZord by way of a stack data structure.---Thanks again for listening in.

It’s Morphin Time!The SituationRecall from our last episode that Rita just deployed the Putties and Goldar to Angel Grove. They’re causing havoc very quickly and it’s time to address these problems.The Data StructureIt’s time to introduce our queue. A linear data structure which obeys the principle of First In, First Out. And that’s exactly what we’ll need to consider granted what Rita just unloaded to the general public.We’ll create our queue utilizing a function declaration which returns a JavaScript object.function createQueue() {// Store our items in an array held in closure.const queue = [];return {// Use unshift(), to keep the collection of the array in order by adding items to the front.enqueue(x) {queue.unshift(x);},// Use pop(), to remove the final item from the array while maintain order.dequeue() {if (queue.length === 0) {return undefined;}return queue.pop();},// Return the next item that's ready to be removed.peek() {if (queue.length === 0) {return undefined;}return queue[queue.length - 1];},// Use a getter function to get the CURRENT queue's length.get length() {return queue.length;},isEmpty() {return queue.length === 0;}}}ConclusionOh no.

It’s Morphin Time!The Situation5 ordinary teenagers are now at the command center. After initial shock, they’re starting to gather their senses and are willing to give this Power Ranger thing a try. The viewing globe lights up and we see that Rita’s sent these clay-like spandex goons called Putties and a Golden Armored Monkey to Angel Grove, a city wedged between LA and San Diego. Just kidding. Maybe.Before they leave to address the issue, Zordon still needs to issue each Ranger their power.Zack will bestow the powers of Mastodon, Kimberly receives Pterodactyl, Billy gets Triceratops, Trini inherits Sabertooth Tiger and Jason will kick it into high gear with Tyrannosaurus.The Data StructureArray Of Objectsconst arrayOfRangers = [{name: 'Zack',power: 'Mastodon',isMorphed: false},{name: 'Kimberly',power: 'Pterodactyl',isMorphed: false},{name: 'Billy',power: 'Triceratops',isMorphed: false},{name: 'Trini',power: 'Sabertooth',isMorphed: false},{name: 'Jason',power: 'Tyrannosaurus',isMorphed: false}];Glossing over this it looks like I can still quickly access any member of the team by indexes of 0 through 4 and each member of the team now has their power.ConclusionPutties are at the park and Goldar is wreaking havoc in down town Angel Grove.

But remember, the source code is on the repo. I’ll upload a video as well, just in case.That said, are you ready? Alright then. It’s Morphin Time!The Situation“Alpha, Rita’s escaped! Recruit a team of teenagers with attitude.”The Data StructureOkay, before I go into teleporting underage kids to the top of a mountain without their consent, I’m going to change the original storyline and instead ask Alpha to contact one person. Hopefully, that alongside word-of-mouth is enough to make a team.I’m looking at the viewing globe and it looks like this guy Zack teaching Hip Hop Kido at Ernie’s Juice Bar is available. Okay, so I lied. I guess I’m going to have to teleport at least one person without their consent. Hopefully we can do some convincing and the remaining teens will follow.Minutes pass and the convincing is done, Zack is going to rope in 4 of his other friends to see if they want in on this.I’ve consulted with Alpha and knowing that we’re assembling this team, Zordon’s going to need a data structure which would allow him quick access to any Ranger should an emergency take place. Alpha offers me two choices, a linked list or an array.ConclusionSirens are going off and the viewing globe just activated. Let’s pause on this for now and address the emergency on hand. For today, assembling the team was hard enough. Based on Zordon’s current need, we’ll conclude that an array data structure is the way to go.Let me know your thoughts on this choice thus far and other paths that could’ve been considered.---Thanks again for listening in.
