Building a Podcast Search App with Joe Zack
Guest Bio Joe Zack is a Druid of the Moon, able to take the shape of the animal that best suits the needs of the moment. Sometimes that animal is a newt, and sometimes it's a Giant Octopus but either way Joe is always ready to lend a tentacle, or whatever. What was the quest? I love to learn via listening, so I wanted an app where I could search for podcast episodes by topic. I launched a little proof of concept and was surprised to see that there were other people interested in the project, so it's been a collaborative effort. There have been some challenges, but ultimately it's been very rewarding because of the product https://qit.cloud, but mostly because of the people I got to know while working together on the project.

Leveling Up in Haskell with Darren Hoehna
Guest Bio A male, human, force, or a FoMar. His go-to spell for quests is C#. Mainly because he's spent the most time studying C#. Also dabbling in C, C++, and Haskell. He also decided to become a Force because he likes having the power to bring computers to their knees and have them do what he says. A level 6 back-end spellcaster. Darren can do some front-end spells when a major quest needs him to. But usually he sticks with the back-end spells. This does not mean Darren can't do front-end spells. He just chooses to learn more about back-end magic because he's better at it than front-end magic. What was the quest? Learning Haskell. I wanted to learn different languages to improve my coding skills and to make myself more marketable. I decided to learn Haskell because 1. Learning Functional Programming I heard would help my programming because of the practices FP makes you follow. 2. To prove to other people that learning Hasekll is hard and that is okay. Too many people want to learn something "right now", or, they quit when something gets too hard.

Security Research with Antony Garand
Guest Bio Antony is a chaotic good thief trying to figure out the limit of today’s security in apps we all use. His day time role is to figure out security issues with popular CMSs and apps, while he gets out to write or solve security challenges during his free time, even though the authors of these apps might not expect them to be targeted. Security is a very vast domain, starting by lockpicking, passing through hacking websites and other applications and ending up with cryptography, the weird arcane magic of mathematics. Recently, he found himself writing about his findings, while hacking the platform he used to write his posts. You can find him on Twitter at AntoGarand, or read his posts on dev.to/antogarand What was the quest? Hacking companies I want to get into (Eg: disclose a vulnerability and send my resume). Making side money by hacking apps I was using. Generally testing the apps I am using for security flaws Links: Twitter: https://twitter.com/AntoGarand Dev.to : https://dev.to/AntoGarand Burp Suite: https://portswigger.net/burp Ring 0 CTF: https://ringzer0ctf.com/ Special Guest: Antony Garand.

Building a Custom Blog Engine with Roberta Barbosa
Guest Bio The beach walk is one of the activities Roberta Barbosa does to unwind. The breeze renews her energy and gives the motivation to develop web applications and inspiration for new business ideas. Additionally, she has been in the IT industry for 28 years, from systems operation to help desk support to systems/firewall administration to software development/ technical project management and entrepreneurship. Currently, she works as a senior software architect/project manager for an investment services company in West Palm Beach and has a part-time online gift business. You can contact her through Twitter @bertabarbosa, Facebook Page @rbrtbarbosa, and LinkedIn. What was the quest? My quest is a blog engine whose goal is to build a platform to help my business and personal brand. I started this project as a way to level up my skills using Microsoft ASP.Net Web Forms a few years ago. Now, since I shifted my mindset to use my technical knowledge to help my business ideas and create a personal brand, I converted this engine to ASP.Core 3 Preview. Also, it is using Entity Framework Core 2.2 for MS SQL and MySql databases, MVC with summernote open source text editor, xUnit Test, and Web Driver Test for Edge. Once Microsoft has the final release of the ASP.Core 3, I will be deploying it to the Godaddy Web Hosting Services: for my personal brand, I will be using the Economy plan, and for my business, I will be using the Deluxe plan. After the deployment, I plan to implement AI, if applicable as well. Perhaps, one of the ideas is to add a chatbot using Language Understanding (LUIS) API.

Building a Flash Card/Note Taking App with Vincent Tang
Guest Bio Vincent Tang is a Dwarven Elementalist that spends his days building tools to make his life easier. His full-time role now is developing water fortress design contract wizardry (water park design contract software), but previous he worked as an architect, ran a tool store, and did research in great metal foundries. As any dwarf, he’s good with any tools but as an Elementalist he likes to think outside the box. He likes to min-max his buildset and focus mostly in wisdom stat tree, so sometimes he spends too much time overthinking things. He writes things about new techniques he learns on vincentntang.com What was the quest? Vincent doesn’t believe in working harder than he has too. So he’s been building little wizardry components, some used by hundreds of Elementalists, to improve stat gains. That’s how Vincent became a self-taught Elementalist.

Iot Ford Bronco with Jared Porcenaluk
Guest Bio Jared Porcenaluk is a warlock alchemist who bides his time by mixing software development and DevOps to create magical panaceas for all sorts of development process ailments. Lately, he's been delving into clairvoyance by way of the Internet of Things, gathering information from far off lands without even needing to be there. As many alchemists do, he swings between believing he's Level 1 and Level 20, depending on whether his latest potions succeed or fail. He writes, prolifically, on ancient scrolls, as well as Twitter @jporcenaluk and on his blog at jaredporcenaluk.com. What was the quest? I've been searching for a way to better understand my noble steed from anywhere in the four corners of this ancient kingdom. It is a Bronco with the power of more than a hundred average horses, specifically, it is a 1988 Ford Bronco II. He had been vexed with a spell that made it impossible to understand what his internal coolant temperature was, and so by mixing a Temperature Sensor elixir and, strangely enough, a raspberry pi, I was able to achieve a sort of second sight into the inner workings of the beast. Now I'm able to read the temperature of the coolant from anywhere, and most importantly, it is accurate.
