Fitness and web development - that's what this podcast is about. Hosted by Erick Arbé, a web developer, entrepreneur and CrossFit addict - each episode will dive into either fitness or web development - or both! With interviews from top performers, coaches and developers from all kinds of backgrounds, it's his goal to bring short concise and useful information to you that you can immediately apply to your life.
If you're on the fence about whether or not to start your own company or quit your job and start your own venture - this episode is for you. Bryce Adams, founder of metorik.com, left his job with only four months of runway and is now running a very successful company with over 250 customers and growing. It's a very inspiring story about how an idea came to life and is now Bryce's full time gig.
We dig into how he built the software, why it's given him so much freedom in his life and where he's headed. His software can be found at Metorik.com and he actually has a behind the scenes blog (which I love) and can be found here.
In rough order, we chat about:
- Laravel and Vue.js
- WP Pusher
- He built an app that show's KPI's for Uber rides!
- Being a self taught developer and Laracasts
- Separate databases for each user
- Popular industries using his product (cannabis industry 😄)
- 37 Signals
- "Focus is saying No" -Steve Jobs
If you've done any kind of front-end design or development in the past ten years, there's a good chance you ran across a blog article by Chris Coyier. Amongst other things, we talk about his relationship with CrossFit, how CSS Tricks got started, how CodePen got started, the power of blogging, how almost all his work is public, and things that have helped him along the way in his professional career.
Jack McDade, founder of the flat-file CMS Statamic shares his story about the roots of his product, how he got into web development and the future of Statamic. We also dive into vacations, travel and about how he lost 60lbs! after starting CrossFit.
In this episode I talk with Carl Paoli - former gymnast, trainer, author and movement specialist. His unique outlook on fitness and life is truly interesting. He has coached some of the most elite athletes in the world and can still do a back handspring. His book is the basis for his Freestyle Connection Movement events that he gives all over the world.
