Writing, Developing with Meteor & React
I wanted to bake my smaller posts into updates and this is the first one that I share what I am working on at the moment. Moment being defined as the next several weeks or so. Let’s start with writing and work our way down a bit.
If you haven’t noticed, I have been writing a lot in the last week. I have been publishing almost 1 per day and I want to try to continue doing so for the rest of the year excluding weekends of course. I have no idea if I can achieve that or not, but I want to write as much as I can. I want to cover all areas of the internet, design, and even some computer builds I have done and will be doing. I also want to write a small life update, or show off some pics from Seoul. Sometimes we don’t have to talk about social media or making business decisions. Sometime I want to write like this and thank you for taking the time out of your day and reading my thoughts. So writing is good for my mind, and there will be more of it.
I do plan on writing my first eBooks soon. I won’t put them out until February though. I want to wrap up my employment before I start publishing my books, but I am excited. My first book is going to be about leadership I think. I want to discuss my 20 years in the military and leading a company as well. It could be a different topic so we’ll see where the winds take me.
Next on the list is Meteor & React! I am not coding it, but my friend that I served with for 3 years is. I design the mockups and he codes the new version of the AM Podcast Network. I have decided that I want something fancier, faster, and easy to work with. I also wanted to work with a newer framework and so far I love what he is doing. We are about 4 weeks into it and it’s starting to see some functionality. The goal is to integrate it tightly with Amazon S3 and offer podcast hosting services with everything you would expect. I am going to put stats in, give people an RSS feed, easy to list, and easy to share. I took all the parts of iTunes, Soundcloud, and what I was doing with the site and mocked something special up. Beta to come out around October. I will announce it soon.
My goal is to build the podcast network and offer extra spots for hosting. I will go slow to see how things turn out, but I don’t plan on taking over the industry. I just want to see how this will be received and if we can make a good run with a thousand shows or so. We won’t be ready for that until January, 2017 at least. Things are looking good though, so fingers crossed for October! That’s what I am working on at the moment!
Oh, wait one last thing. I have the GoPro Hero 4 Black, and all the equipment is here minus the microphone and YouTube is about to start happening way more often with solid equipment and hopefully good topics. See me soon! ~ Adam
Here is a video I did to wrap things up.
