http://advancedbeginnerchallenge.com – I built a course to get your first job in web development, or upgrade from Junior to mid-level! How do you build a portfolio and website with NO work experience? This episode is for ALL BEGINNERS. MUST LISTEN. Your personal brand is your biggest competitive advantage. You must start building it, NOW. PS - If you're a follower of Marco Arment, and you don't like talking about "braaaaandds" b/c Marco makes fun of it, I'll tell you this, do what he DOES not what he SAYS. He is laughing all the way to the bank, off the back of his ability to build brands. So you decide. Note - I forgot to mention that there will be another video where we go over how to write blog posts, so don't worry about the "dummy blog posts" for now. Sorry for not mentioning that here!

If you prefer to watch this episode you can do that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxdrmwakXGo Building your first web application can be extremely complicated. BUT, it's easier if you break it down into "chunks" and then execute those. In this video I go over exactly how I break down web apps into "chunks" that represent tutorials, then you can go google those tutorials and simply execute them, combining the tutorials together. This method has made it possible for multiple students of mine, brand new to development, to build their first app. Connect with me on instagram @dainmiller or @starthere.fm --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/startherewebdev/message

http://advancedbeginnerchallenge.com – I built a course to get your first job in web development, or upgrade from Junior to mid-level! Learn a framework not a language. The framework is a trojan horse for the knowledge you need of the language. - Learn Rails, not Ruby. - Learn Django, not Python. - Learn Angular/Ember/React+Redux, not JavaScript. - Learn Phoenix, not Elixir. - Learn .NET, not C#. - Learn Laravel, not PHP. - Etc etc. A few notes from today's episode: 1. Look around at the industry you want to be in, what are other people spending 80% of their time on, that is only getting them 20% of the result? Hard to identify what exactly that is? If you have trouble with this, just identify what people spend 80% of their time on, and do the opposite. This is what makes people massively successful, mark my words. 2. SKIP OVER what you identified in #1. SKIP OVER what most people are doing. This is taking MASSIVE ACTION. Massive action is relative. Relative to the rest of humans on this planet, are you taking massive action? Here are some examples of taking massive action: - Learn a Framework: Deploy ANYTHING to Heroku (that only you will see) by tomorrow. No excuses. - Learn a Framework: complete 1 page that has some functionality you agree with yourself ahead of time, deploy it to Heroku, then send to 2 friends on Facebook and ask them to try and use it. - Go start interviewing for jobs, NOW. WHY WAIT? Stop sitting around and take action. - Want to start a podcast? Launch a crappy first version by TOMORROW. - Want to write a book? Launch a crappy first eBook by next Monday. No matter what. Stop trying to make everything perfect on the first try, just focus on making stuff good on the second try. Your first handful of job interviews, book chapters, podcast episodes, programming projects - they will all SUCK on the first go around. BE OKAY WITH THAT and push forward and keep going and you will advance beyond the crowd. Most people either A) get obsessed with making the first version perfect and never go anywhere, or B) feel so depressed from their first version being a failure they never go anywhere. SKIP OVER ALL THAT, and get somewhere. Or don't, and continue to take small actions, and remain in limbo for the rest of your life. This is my challenge for you. Are you up for it? Tweet me @dainmiller and let me know you are taking massive actions. Ask me questions on the best massive action to take. I will hold you accountable. You aren't allowed to do small things if you are following me. I will make sure you are accountable. Go to twitter and follow me and let's do this.

http://advancedbeginnerchallenge.com – I built a course to get your first job in web development, or upgrade from Junior to mid-level. How to become an advanced beginner 1. Pick 1 language and 1 framework. If you can't decide, pick Ruby on Rails and be done with it. 2. Gather Context! Read 10 tutorials in your framework & language. 10 is a lot. If you don't know what I mean by this, I recorded an entire portion of an episode on this topic here: http://starthere.fm/webdev/one. 3. Reps and sets: Do 10-25 tutorials. can you do it? 4. BONUS: find mentor to ask questions on ur journey :) twitter is great for this, check out my podcast on networking on twitter here: http://starthere.fm/general/28-how-to-network-and-stay-in-your-comfort-zone-step-by-step-guide-to-networking-for-introverts 4. Project Phase A. Learn a version control system & setup git project B. Find project online that u suspect uses ur framework and language C. Pull out paper and do a "low fidelity" mockup of the website that you are seeing. D. get basic application up and running by following tutorial "How to build a blog in FRAMEWORK/LANGUAGE HERE" E. break your mockups into "sections" that are tutorials you might find online, then combine the tutorials together into an app 5. BONUS: Ask mentor any questions you might have at this phase Attempt to develop relationship with mentor 6. Pre-job last educational push (courses, coaches, further professional development, etc). Modeling a person is a great thing to do in this phase. Find a course or program or person that you can model or learn from in this phase. 7. You're ready to start looking for a job.

Totally feel you regarding that social anxiety thing.. Having this myself I have concluded that it is the result of mix of high emotional intelligence and character traits of the individual who experiences this. In other worda, an idiot would never feel that way. It can be regulated though!

I love the show guys but I'm getting quite frustrated trying to find the show notes. I can't find them here on castbox or on your website that you refer to in your podcasts. Is anyone else having trouble with this? I don't know if this is something on my end or yours, but I would love to get some guidance on how I can access them.

Dude! Seriously! Learn to cook! Much, Much cheaper, and better for you. Make one appointment with a good nutritionist. Have her give you a Macro percentage chart for you, your BMR, and a list of good/bad carbs/fat. Keep a food log (MyFitnessPal is good for this). I literally had ONE visit. and from there, dropped 50lbs in 5 months, from 245 - down to 195. And don't need to really "cook" most of the time. lots of fresh fruit. NO refined carbs or sugar. Still have carbs, just "good" carbs.
