What is the root of this fear?

165 Success Story: Mitch Tabian On Building Online Programming Presence - Simple Programmer Video Podcast

Success Story: Mitch Tabian On Building Online Programming Presence

Mitch is one more of those awesome success stories I like to share with you guys to show that, once you start to put everything I teach you in this channel, the chances of success are close to 100%.

Here is part of how his life changed one he started applying what I teach in this YouTube channel: " I think you will probably remember me as I've emailed you several times in the past and commented on quite a few videos - but who knows, you have such a large reach know I think it would be easy to get lost in the crowd.

I have been watching your videos since December 2015 (back when you still had the squeaky voice in some of your videos and occasionally wore a fidora). At that point I was in my last semester of school, finishing up my BSc. Physics and Diploma in Enginnering Physics. I had NO idea what I really wanted to do when I graduated in approximately 4 months.

This was scary AF.

Very quickly I saw that my true passion was writing code. I had taken only 2 java classes, a Python class, a C++ class and an Assembly programming class. But upon reflection I realized that was what I really liked doing.

I had ZERO idea how to become a software developer with my current education. After asking around I came to the conclusion that is was possible - so I started watching YouTube videos.

I had to come up with a way to really learn to code, and learn quickly because I only had 4 months until I needed to get a job - and unemployment was not an option for me. I can't sit idle, I need to do things.

This is where you came in. I watched your videos and listened to your advice. I bought your blogging course and made my own blog. I then decided I was going to share with others as I learned and made a YouTube channel. On the channel I made (and still make) video tutorials for Android App Development. This accelerated my learning pace by x100. Teaching others is the single best way to learn something yourself. It forces you to develop a much deeper understanding. When your presenting something you can clearly see all the holes in your knowledge.

I started out only doing 1 or 2 posts a week but I was coding and learning a ton after school and on weekends. My first videos were shit and when I look back at them I cringe a little - so I completely understand how you felt when watching your old videos when you had that squeaky voice lol.

Fast-forward to graduation in April 2016: I managed to get an IT job at one of the largest companies in the province where I live. It wasn't a programmer job, but they employed programmers so I was very excited. I really believe the only reason they even brought me in for an interview is because of the technical skills I learned when teaching myself so code. I'm pretty good with people so that sealed the deal in the interview, but I doubt they would have called me without the programming/database skills I put on my resume.

Fast-forward to today: I quit my job about 4 months ago to do my own thing. I had done a few contract jobs building apps for people/companies while I was working my IT job and decided that I was going to give the YouTube and Freelance Android Dev thing a try - and really commit to it. Now everything is going really well for me"

158 Interview With Denis Noble On How To Change Your Limiting Beliefs - Simple Programmer Video Podcast

July 13, 2017

Interview With Denis Noble On How To Change Your Limiting Beliefs

"Denis Noble (born 16 November 1936) is a British biologist who held the Burdon Sanderson Chair of Cardiovascular Physiology at the University of Oxford from 1984 to 2004 and was appointed Professor Emeritus and co-Director of Computational Physiology. He is one of the pioneers of Systems Biology and developed the first viable mathematical model of the working heart in 1960"
(Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denis_Noble)

Today I've partnered up with Denis Noble to discuss about the theory of beliefs and how there is much more to that than what we already know. Biology is not what we think we know and, more and more, the scientific community is starting to see more evidence about it.

In this video, Denis will show how you can change your beliefs with the power of biology and how it can directly impact your life as a software developer.

157 Should You Follow Your Heart Or Your Head? - Simple Programmer Video Podcast

July 12, 2017

Should You Follow Your Heart Or Your Head?

A lot of people, at some point in life, get stuck in the dicotomy of brain vs. heart. These opposite forces tend to leave people out in nuts. How are you supposed to choose between heart or brain?

Heart is what makes you feel... It is the "thing" that brings out the emotions in your. It is what you "want", in its core. The brain, on the other hand, is responsible for the analytical thinking. It surpasses the reptilian brain in order to make "smarter choices".

How do you choose between the two? Whenever facing a new challenge, should you follow your heart or your head?
