Oh, hello there!
I’m known as RealToughCandy on YouTube, but you can call me Candy. I got my start in the feral ’90s underbelly of internet culture and actually lived to tell about it. Today, I own a development company, working with an über-talented team of passionate developers.
365BlottoChallenge.com (also known as realtoughcandy.com [I’ll share that story some other day]) is my hub for sharing everything from cool coding board games, to up-and-coming web developers with you. We also have some excellent guest writers who are on the same page!
This site also serves as my starting base for showing clients what RealToughCandy is all about.
But let’s rewind for a second.
When I first started out, I didn’t have anywhere to go online where I felt like I was part of a welcoming, active tech community.
Maybe you can relate?
So, I decided to change that. The RealToughCandy YouTube channel, Gitter chatroom, Dev Mojo newsletter, and this website are all places I created with aspiring and beginning developers in mind. With you in mind.
This thumbnail is from a video geared at aspiring and junior developers, and involves a Muppet and a really dangerous web developer job board site. Videos like these give aspiring developers real and valuable information.
“But RealToughCandy, why? WHY?!”
My goal is to build an authentic, active tech community where you can get inspired to succeed in tech. The time is now.
Don’t believe me? Check out this video on tech opportunity:
So, welcome aboard! I welcome any ideas for making the RealToughCandy network even better, and look forward to meeting you. No…really.
Code on and Prosper,
