    Seth Mulligan: Modeling a Venture

    Seth Mulligan: Modeling a Venture

    Modeling a venture is related but, certainly a different discipline than inventing or creating it or coding it or improving it.



    Host Karin Thorne and special Guest Host Max Matthews chat with Seth Mulligan of StorySlab about smart networking, what it's like to model a venture, and where he sees Syracuse heading in the future.

    Joey Buczek: Work Harder at Working Smarter

    Joey Buczek: Work Harder at Working Smarter

    If you're gonna be part of a community of people that are like-minded, do try to show up and go be a part of the community. Contribute in some way. There's a lot of value that you can get out of it and there's a lot of value you can bring to it without even knowing that you're bringing value to it... There's been a lot of moments in my life where I've realized I've either said something or done something for someone and there's like a lightbulb that goes off, right? And you see that lightbulb go off for that person and you're like "Oh, wow, I actually helped that person get on their path to achieving something that they wanted to achieve" and that's really cool. It's really rewarding, and I would encourage anyone to go out and just be a part of a community even if it's not programming.



    Hosts Karin Thorne and Kelly Corey chat with Joey Buczek about his experience balancing family, work and teaching at a coding bootcamp along with his work ethic philosophy and how he started the SyrJS Meetup. Joey also shares his greatest programming resource with us and we pitch more ideas for Syracuse tech Meetups.




    This episode is part VIII of our series: Catching Up with Careers in Code! We chat with founders, instructors/TAs, and students of the first CiC cohort about their experience and where they'd like to see the program go in the future.

    Lauren Adam: Hobbies Over Side Hustles

    Lauren Adam: Hobbies Over Side Hustles

    I'm a selfish knitter. A lot of people, especially in the tech industry, are all about side hustles. I'm not about that life. ... Everyone's always like, "Why don't you sell your knits? Why don't you do this? Why don't you - " and I'm like, "Man, I had two jobs for like five years . I don't want another job, and I don't want something that I enjoy to become another job.





    Hosts Kelly Corey and Karin Thorne chat with Lauren Adam about her non-traditional journey into tech, the importance of keeping hobbies separate from side hustles, and her experience creating the What a Woman podcast. Lauren shares her experience as part of Start Fast Code. We also discuss '90s toys, the Star Wars franchise, and tabletop roleplaying games.

    Will Guisbond: The Power of Networking

    Will Guisbond: The Power of Networking

    One of the main things I love about my job is the community. Being able to go to these events and call it work when it's really just socializing and networking and building those connections. The same thing goes for flying. There's a really big community around aviation that people are drawn to for that reason. You go to these little events that are like the dev Meetups we go to, and I love that, so community building has always been a big thing for me... So it makes me very humble to say I get to do this for a living and I get paid to make these connections.





    Hosts Karin Thorne and Kelly Corey chat with Will Guisbond about his experience working as an Operations Intern at such a young age and the importance of building community. We also go behind the scenes of Hack Upstate and Careers in Code and we learn about Will's plans after graduating high school.




    This episode is part VII of our series: Catching Up with Careers in Code! We chat with founders, instructors/TAs, and students of the first CiC cohort about their experience and where they'd like to see the program go in the future.

    Ryan Gaus: Open Source Success

    Ryan Gaus: Open Source Success

    If you have a mixture of getting lucky and have a little bit of talent at doing this sort of stuff, you could have an idea that maybe has some success. And I'll say, if you roll a die enough times, you'll at least get a minor success.





    Hosts Karin Thorne and Kelly Corey continue the conversation with Ryan Gaus and discuss the success of his open source project, Backstroke. We also chat about where to host your projects online and Ryan tells about what he's building in his workshop.




    This episode is part VI of our series: Catching Up with Careers in Code! We chat with founders, instructors/TAs, and students of the first CiC cohort about their experience and where they'd like to see the program go in the future.
