I thought about all the missing pieces in my engineering growth and created a curriculum that welcomes students from 0 engineering background and plugs in all the holes that were black boxed to me in my engineering growth: We host our own servers, allowing students configure nginx and create ssl certs themselves for the apps they build. Our projects mimick existing well known companies (netflix, dropbox, gmail, google docs clones).
Our curriculum is largely project based, so students work together on projects that they would be using themselves: building their own email client, chat client, filestorage/backups, firebase, etc. From day 1 of a students journey, their code is thoroughly code reviewed by other students.
2 months ago, Calworks, a local government assistance program, offered to send students to us and pay each students $13/hr for up to 6 months. Unfortunately, to make this deal work, we needed a commercial office (my wife and I teach out of our apartment) and we did not have the financial resources.
Last month, we finally got approved as a tax exempt non-profit so I can reach out to my friends for donations (but donations take time, I have to set up a bunch of fundraising tools first). My savings ran out so I started applying for jobs and landed a full-time position at Paypal starting in January.
Moving forward into 2018, a few of the senior students are going to be leading the non profit. 100% of my salary and equity is going into the non-profit so existing students would not only continue to be paid, but we now also have the financial resources to get an office and push the Calworks deal through to help more people! 2018 is looking to be a great year.
We do not have any internet presence at the moment because this year our focus had largely been testing and iterating our curriculum as well as our financial model. 2018 will be different and if you want to help, our non-profit is called GarageScript.
Not everybody is using fb, I hope you'll finish your http://garagescript.org/ website soon because now most links don't seem to be working. When you provide more details I think you may find some people who are willing to donate. E.g. is non-profit registered under garagescript? I couldn't find it. Well at least make contact and linkedin links working now that you are going to get some exposure from HN frontpage.
Got a bit too much into details, but what I meant to say, really great initiative, kudos.
All of the points you mentioned is in our top priority list for early 2018, thank you for pointing them out!
What were the holes that black-boxed you in your engineering growth?
1. Servers. I've always 'pushed to heroku' without really knowing how servers worked.
2. Git. I've always just used gitlab or other git hosting services without knowing how to build it.
3. File hosting. I've always just uploaded files without knowing how files are processed / stored.
4. Email. SMTP is like a big unknown, I've never really cared about how emails worked.
5. SSL. This was always done for me, I've never had to create and manage my own certificates.
a lot of these seem devopsy. I've definitely delved into a lot of these as an extracurricular activity over the years or have had to learn for work reasons (like being the only guy willing to take on the devops type work) but I'm not sure it belongs in a boot camp type curriculum.
There's so many assumptions in mathematics, I've always assumed it must just take too much time/expertise to cover them properly. Engineering != math, but accomplishing that is revolutionary.
Curious how/why something like PayPal/Stripe integration couldn't be done in a short amount of time. Not as a criticism, just "is this actually technically hard?" (or is it just a time issue?)
2. Integration with non-profits donations is not trivial. After registering as a non-profit, it takes some time for the list of registered non-profits to propagate through to donation tools (facebook, gofundme, etc). Sometimes, I have to fax in documents to prove legitimacy, and it takes a few days for that to process. I could easily create a gofundme for "help me do x" in my name instead of the non-profit's, but I didn't want to do that.
Hope that clears things up.
I have focused on things like reading (read +40 books in 2017, up from 1-2 per year), wood working, sketching, running and skiing. To keep up my programming skills I have done a deep dive in new programming languages and fiddling with some side projects. It has been an incredible year for personal development and it has changed my perspective on what things are important in life (sitting in front of a screen 40-60 hours a week not being one of them). I highly recommend everyone to do this at least once in your career!
Is that in the US? Sounds really low...
You can very much pull that off in lots of small towns in the US, but yeah, you're living a close to thread bare lifestyle.
But made an active choice to cut them out. And it hasn't been a loss for me, instead of take out I make exactly what I want (and no stress now that I have time to cook), instead of drinks out invite friends over and have a drink (cheap) at home, instead of useless things try to realize that you don't actually need them. Also living in a place with public transport helps, but I mostly bike everywhere.
But, I think doing it early (say after ~3 years) has the advantage of settling/deepening the understanding of your work. Often the early years are super hectic and you try to be your best, neglecting things like mindful reflection. I believe sabbatical can help this, kind of like how sleep organizes and "cleans up" thoughts/memories. We need both the short sleep and "long" sleep.
Also, I have prepared for a potential surgery by getting botox injections in my forehead muscle. So far, my focus at work has dramatically improved: https://corticalchauvinism.com/2016/10/17/yuval-levental-aut...
What led me down this road is I found a study that said that people on the spectrum may have different facial features (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/children-with-autism-have-disti...). I reasoned my face looks very similar, and then realized that I experienced lots of muscle tension on my forehead.
Lots of people have been cured depending on if their ASD was caused by biological dysfunction - for example I know one who had biontidinase dysfunction so biotin supplementation cured all symptoms.
Hopefully you’ve identified the driver of your ASD and it will help you achieve your goals!
I learned to deal with my personal Aspergers but despite the social issues it caused earlier in my life deeply value the weird thinking processes it has given me.
As mentioned, I believe the driver is my facial structure. I know that normally, facial structure is not the cause of a condition, but the muscle tension on my forehead is caused by my facial structure, and I suspect that muscle tension is most likely the cause of the symptoms I face.
The link in your article no longer works (http://www.abaphysicaltherapy.com/2011/10/what-is-craniosacr...).
I really like your analytical approach to solving this, e.g. https://corticalchauvinism.com/2017/11/13/yuval-levental-cra...
Most people suffering from this condition don't have a physics background and wouldn't think to apply Hooke's law here.
I actually know quite a lot about math and science, but my major difficulty is not being able to hold down a career where I have to apply math/science (though I have difficulty staying focused at most jobs that require substantial abstract ability).
In addition to Hooke's law, I simply felt a lot of muscle tension on my forehead growing up. Because I essentially had that feeling from birth though, I didn't consciously notice it until recently.
BTW, I am diagnosed as high-functioning, but I am not so high-functioning that I can "pass" for normal or even close to normal in public. That is starting to change though.
In any event, I enjoyed the couple of videos of yours I watched.
It's all good though, I was planning to leave anyways.
I am now working on a bunch of ideas that I hope will help some people around here:
1. A Pocket-to-Kindle service that syncs (almost) instantly to your Kindle whatever article you save, formats it like a professionally edited book, cleans up ads and takes advantage of the new typesetting engine inside the new Kindle firmware.
2. A Spotify music discovery website.
I'm trying to make a two-click-playlist-generator by using Spotify APIs to look at the top artists/genres of a user and create playlists on the fly with tracks that the user could like.
I use Spotify daily and found myself overwhelmed by how much music there is available. Because of that, I'm mostly listening to my saved songs, Discover Weekly/Release Radar and trying out playlists that usually have the same too popular songs.
3. An adaptive brightness/contrast app for external monitors. Adjusting brightness using the monitor's controls is always annoying to do.
4. A morning alarm that starts playing an algorithmically generated Spotify playlist each time, with fade-up volume, external speaker support, adaptive algorithm based on likes/dislikes and self-updating alarm times based on day moments (twilight, sunrise, golden hour, dusk etc.)
5. A detector for processes that eat up all your CPU and battery. I started writing this in Rust so I can make it cross-platform and learn the language at a lower level.
https://github.com/alin23/spfy is the core of that idea. If you want I can help you or your friend set it up. Or I can let you know when the finished website is ready.
Personally, I am thinking about developing an online service, which will be offerring general-purpose providing distribution of content to Kindle or other ebook-readers. Initially, I thought about creating only a app which will extract a article tag from website and create ebook from it (pandoc) or exactly a Pocket-to-Kindle. But when I was thinking more about it more ideas had come to my mind, HN-frontpage scrapper, simple notebook/orgmode adapted to Kindle Experimental Browser, markdown-files-to-ebook, arxiv-to-ebook converter, some kind of IFFTT pipeline (stream X from Y and save it as a ebook) and even trying to implement most of features known from Calibre application... If I could somehow help you as a developer or you are interested in bootstrapping some online service together I really would like to receive an e-mail from you. My e-mail address: (put my HN nickname here) at gmail.com
The number of times Pocket just either redirects to the original article, or drops salient bits of text (in particular, unordered list items) is really annoying.
Personally I use Instapaper more for reading because of all the premium features being free and keep Pocket in sync using IFTTT for their good recommendations.
I can make you an (unofficial, free) beta tester if you want. I'll have most of the basic functionality by the end of January. If you're interested let me know here: email@example.com
I've started working on a similar service but didn't ship. I'd love to chat (email in profile).
Bored Hackers https://www.boredhackers.com : a public chatroom based community site. Think of it like reddit, but chatrooms insteads of forums. I just deployed the first version a few hours ago. Bored Hackers is an experiment at building the community site that I wish existed : public chatroom based communites, pseudonymous users, transparent moderation logs, an open source code base and a site that is welcoming to non-technical users. Currently, there is a single chat room for all discussions and support for user created chat rooms will be added shortly.
why an iframe?
How do you manage to continue working on something you know is a dead end though? Is the money that good? Would the money go away if you worked on another project at the same firm?
The school is free to students until they find a job, then they contribute with a % of their salary. After only 9 months, many students find internships and jobs at companies like NASA, Apple, LinkedIn, Tesla, Dropbox...
It's a life-changing experience for many of our students, and it also changes the Tech industry by bringing folks with an untraditional background. Our students are straight out of high-school, some had a career before: cashier, math teacher, artist, poker player...
We have no formal teachers, no lectures, students learn by working on projects and collaborating with their peers. We are located in San Francisco and looking forward expanding.

do people pay you for this? seems like a service and content that people would pay for, but i couldn't find any sign that this is being monetized on the site.
Took a long break from hacking and staying indoors playing with yet another framework. I am much happier :) my depression is better and I have more balance :) Less likely to burn out.
I'm trying to get people to reconsider the more traditional web development style of server-side rendering of HTML + HATEOAS.
I fear though that you're swimming against the currents (obviously, speaking about the current trends of everyone using React or one of the other frameworks for frontend development). I hope you'll gain traction in creating a trend of a different path, making traditional web development style a viable alternative for modern web apps.
I hope you find it useful, and good luck in 2018.
Along the way I brushed up on some es6 concepts, learned React, and was reminded of writing eggdrop bot scripts back in the day :P
Everything is public on github and is somewhat-generic/reusable by others. Hope to complete documentation and make it 100% generic in Jan/Feb so others can use and contribute.

Also helped deploy/ship Tekken Chicken, a framedata app for Tekken 7 (ios: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/t7chicken/id1244210422?mt=8) (android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.t7chicken&...)
Now i realized that the money was the least of our problem and the startup is on the brink of death.
I replaced the source of my income from job to stock market investments. Now i am focusing on a new side project that poped in my head. For the last 2 months I have built a prototype that works and started to dogfood it.
It's a tag that turns any object into a smart object (still working on my elevator pitch). What it does is allow you to contact the owner of any device. Put the tag on your car and anyone can contact you about your car(i.e. if it is blocking the way or you left your lights on). Put the tag on your keychain and if you lose them people can contact you. You can use the tags on anything really.
I started by building an android app but then realized you can do all this directly from the browser.
Expect the first beta in January.
Did you just invent a QR code with contact details? (Edit: Not saying it's a dumb idea, sounds useful.)
Here is my hope for making good use of it.
Many of the financial decisions made wasted tons of money. (Microsoft Azure is not for your up and coming start up, too expensive)
I tend to favor meeting one customer at a time to understand the problem we are trying to solve, but we went for bulk email and spamming. The few clients I met one on one still believe in us today.
The startup idea was good. The solution was poorly executed, and we had too many chefs in the kitchen (5 co-founders).
I hope this makes sense.
I also maintain an open source SMS API called Textbelt, but it became unreliable due to spammers. I launched a paid hosted version and have been steadily improving it: https://textbelt.com/
Started as a side project in January, and I had no idea it would take off like this. We now have 20 employees, including instructors from Google, Apple, Blizzard, etc. and our first graduating students are getting hired for great salaries all over the US. (Average is $85,000 in low cost of living areas)
Would be interested in learning about the backstory. Did you blog about it somewhere?
Started with 20 students, they performed remarkably well, started adding classes each month, got into YC and raised a large seed round, solved 2 or 3 other problems that hadn’t been solved before, and now we’re ready to open the gates to more people (our acceptance rate right now is right around 2%)
We offer a free, licensed MBA (working on accreditation process) using an interactive (re: non-video), mobile-centric content platform. In addition, we provide job-matching services for anyone interested in opting in.
I'm proud of what we've built and hoping it continues to see traction in 2018.
My side project that became my job: https://readonlyrest.com
With a team of 3 including myself, the only professional software developer, we have launched and run a solar radiation and PV power forecasting/observation API (solcast.com.au) that can provide solar radiation and PV power forecasts world wide that update every 10-30 minutes based on satellite coverage.
For the past 10 months this API has been freely accessible whilst we validated our approach and expanded to cover the globe. After great feedback from users, we are now planning a big update to make it even easier to use and to integrate live PV output data into forecasting itself.
The change to work on something that contributes a large net positively to society’s around the world (making solar based electricity generation more financially attractive to operators/home owners a like all over the world) has been hugely rewarding and look forward to the growth of solar power generation in 2018.
Solar radiation forecasting incorporates a few models for 1-7 days, and for now casting (0-4 hours) is based on NWP wind forecasting combined with our own cloud tracking, ML and blending with NWP models from 4-24 hours.
Some of the above might be slightly off as I’m not a meteorologist or study solar radiation modelling. Luckily Solcast founders are and we are also partnered with a project at the Australian National University working with some extremely bright people to get the science right.
If you want to get further into the details, feel free to email Nick Engerer or James Luffman (contacts on our website) about the science, or post on our community forums (forums.solcast.com.au).
The models are:
(1) PPReCOGG, one of the models based on Gabor filters and k-NN (https://github.com/jszym/pprecogg)
(2) DeepDuct, the second model, based on a pre-trained VGG16 network and the Grad-CAM algorithm, localises lesions _and_ informs clinicians about why the model has chosen the lesion type it did.
You can find more details in my master's thesis, for which the models were written: http://cs.mcgill.ca/~jszymb/thesis/260528685_Szymborski_Jose...

In case you're taking feature requests, these are some things I'd love to see in a 10k site (order in relevancy):
autocomplete in search
see recently released 10k's
10k specific discussions (e.g., annotating similar to RapGenius as well as longform analysis)
Many have tried to solve this problem – we've found at least 20 projects that attempt to turn JSON sample data into code to represent that data, but they're almost all abandoned and they all have the same fundamental flaws (they generate invalid code for most non-trivial inputs).
In the past two weeks we've created Xcode and VS Code plugins. I've had so much fun with this project! We'd love to create a business around quicktype but we haven't figured that part out yet.
There is probably a small market for quickly translating SQL Server DB schema into a C# GraphQL provider with easy authentication/filtering hooks. Not sure if the market would be any bigger cross-platform since the momentum follows free open source options.
Is there anything we can improve?

Thanks for sharing!
Much work is yet to me done including docs (lots of Doxygen-based docs exist but introductory and TCP API docs are generally missing). However the TCP implementation should actually be pretty solid.
Right now, it exists as a Github project that you can self-host, but I'll soon offer it as a paid service if you don't want to host and maintain servers on your own. (And maybe even apply to YC, who knows :))
It started out with me reading a blog post  and thinking "I can write Disqus tonight". And that's how it began; I had a working prototype in 24 hours (at the expense of a final exam I had in two days haha). Posted it on HN, and it blew up. And then I sat down and made it into a serious project that's now actually used by other people. I've had senior devs from huge companies (like Atlassian) contribute to the project, and I think that's amazing.
I just quickly registered and it appears the moderation/dashboard functionality is slightly limited in HostedComments. I only have the option to view all the comments. But with SaaS commento, you'll have a full fledged dashboard. Here's a sneek peak: https://i.imgur.com/j23BfKN.png
This was only possible because of all the contributors : some of the design paradigms were entirely their ideas, so credits to them as well.
it's ride sharing app that works thru Telegram (currently). Surprisingly, it worked really well, there are 100-500 rides in some cities every day
The instructions are all over the place. The NodeJS instructions say you can run npm -i after installing node. Then you get to Getting Started and it seems like a detached process altogether. The getting started section should start from either installing the dependencies or cloning the repo. Right now it just starts with renaming some file.
Good work, though, at least from what i can see on the site once it actually does run it is a beautiful thing.
Also, I'm going to add docker image soon, so it will just work with few commands
In my spare time I've been maintaining my Autospotting pet project, which is maturing nicely, growing a lot and already generated savings in the six-seven digits for its users: https://github.com/cristim/autospotting
I also spent time learning to play guitar, made a habit of practicing and working out on a daily basis and towards the end of the year I became a father.
All in all it was likely my best year so far.
Even though feature engineering is crucial for building machine learning pipelines, there are few formal methods for performing feature engineering. We see Featuretools filling a missing component in the software engineering stack for data science.
It has already been put to the test with our customers at my company, but we have also begun to release demos so that others can pick it up https://www.featuretools.com/demos.
I decided to focus on making a business out of music. I'm far from where I want to be, but it's been a long time since I was doing Mechanical Turk tasks to pay for junk food. I have savings, my music is improving, and 4 people pay me almost $15 a month through Patreon. Probably not a lot to the crowd here at HN, but it's a peace of mind I never knew before.
The big, super-important lesson I got from that is to not cling to what I wanted at some point in the past and accept how things are. I wanted to be fully financially independent, but had no plans, no goals, no notion of how I might make it happen. I had the desire, but not the will or commitment.
Being two seconds and one failure of attention from the front end of an 18-wheeler has a way of hitting the reset button.
- Launched my startup on Product Hunt (https://www.producthunt.com/posts/slackpass-2).
- Interviewed with YC, sadly didn't make the cut.
- Had hundreds of of calls and thousands of chats with founders looking to create paid communities.
- Helped many create their own profitable, paid communities.
- Became a solo founder.
- Became profitable enough to cover both business and personal expenses.
- Rebranded to LaunchPass (https://launchpass.com) due to inevitable trademark issues with the use of "Slack" in our name, and plans to expand beyond Slack. (btw Slack has been awesome regarding the transition)
- And plenty more I intend to write about in a "year in review" post I'm working on.
Becoming a founder this year was one of the most challenging, fascinating, and deeply rewarding experiences I've ever had.
Here's to a happy, healthy, productive, and successful 2018
Happy New Year HN!
You provide JSON data that will be exposed through an API which candidates will use. They are given instructions on how to parse and manipulate the data. Then they POST the response to you. If the response is 200 OK - they've passed and they can upload their code for your team to review and decide if they should go to the interview stage.
I think this has lots of benefits:
- It's gives candidates a real-life problem to solve. Most, if not all software developers will have to interact with API's and manipulate data.
- Candidates can use their own dev environment that they are comfortable using.
- It saves the company time. They can choose to only assess the code of people who pass the test.
- It makes for a good candidate experience. I think it reflects well on a company if their interview process is close to real-life work.
Hoping to ship the beta version of this next month
This approach also requires the client to implement ratelimiting, but you could fix that by having the data POSTed to your servers instead.
I unfortunately can't remember the name of it, but a service was presented on here a while ago that presented a series of security challenges then connected successful applicants with employers and managed the whole process. Methinks that's the right way to do this kind of thing.
It's been a rough year financially but we've made a ton of ground and it's looking pretty damn shiny for 2018.
Edit: Since that was pretty vague, it's a system for guarding, automating and remotely operating industrial hydraulic booms (eg. fixed plant rockbreakers, jib and knuckleboom cranes, etc.)
It took almost 1.5 years to complete, Backend APIs were done with Django, iOS app with Swift. The concept is dating app for London commuters.
I created the whole London Underground maps programmatically in the app.
The final result was ok, unfortunately dating market is already saturated, and our market is only limited to London, lesson learned, test your idea first, build a quick prototype, don't spend more than 5-6 months, unless you are really sure.
For the rest of the year, I have concentrated in learning Reactive functional programming, created a small backend app with Clojure, at work I am working on iOS app, which I have architected using, RxSwift, MVVM, it has over 650 tests, with close to 80% test coverage using Quick and Nimble frameworks.
I would say it does not really what architecture is used, as long as it is easy to test, simple to add new features, any architecture will be fine.
From my point of view, I probably have a bit different approach to MVVM where we have Service layer (similar to Java Spring), below View Model, stick to the simple rules like single responsibility, separation of concerns, define your rules about communication between the architecture layers. RxSwift makes the communication between the layers so much easier, the old alternative would be using delegation pattern, notifications. In a large project over 30k lines delegation pattern will become painful to manage. Choose the right architecture for your project and don't be scared to add additional mechanisms, layers, because there is no solution that fits all.
With RxSwift concurrency is handled for you, you can do the heavy duty tasks in the background, observe on the main thread for ui updates.
You can run multiple tasks in parallel and return the combined result. Things like these, become trivial to work with.
Another benefit is that you will strive to write more functional code, functions that return observable that does one thing, and chain other observables, It wont be pure functional since most of the you will have side effects, which is fine.
But still it is a good fight between the Object oriented paradigm vs Functional programming paradigm, finally you will settle with both and find a good balance.

Anyway, I went from being a CTO who was constantly being pitched horrible no-good business ideas by first times CEOs - who as a rule,
wanted to give me 10% equity but also wanted me to build the project for free - to a CEO who closed countless sales and knows his CAC and LTV like the back of his hand.
If I can, so can you but you have to manage CAC:LTV.
The idea is that quantity trumps quality:
I launched ScrumGenius (https://scrumgenius.com). Its a side project I started for fun at my previous job (it was just a simple slack bot script back then) and decided to actually build a service and launch it a few months ago. I did not take it too seriously at first, I was just using it to learn. However, after reading indiehackers and other people launching products I was really inspired to give it a try. Its been steadily growing and it makes around $300/mo.
Hoping to continue to grow it even more in 2018.
