I think you will spend 120 seconds reading this post
Hello, as you know, it’s me, Alec, writing this from Irvine, CA. I’ve decided to go ahead and centralize what has been happening in my life to a [blog] post that will be released on the first of every month that details some key events of the previous month. I am starting this because I am now in college at the University of California, Irvine (UCI).
April 2015 –
April was back to school for me after spring break and now a whole new quarter.
How To Develop iOS Apps Course –
On the 15th of this month, I launched the How To Develop iOS Apps course, a video course that takes anyone from no programming experience to releasing their own iOS app on the App Store. This was a project that was one that I had devised before my high school graduation, begun working on last August, filmed before college had started, only finished editing over spring break, and finally released last month. I’m really proud of this video series as it is 68 lessons with 10.5 hours of content completely created by me. Check it out here!
With the advent of my iOS development course, I looked for advising on how to best create this product and business, and the Blackstone Launchpad here on the UCI campus was exactly what I needed. Other than the free advising for entrepreneurs they offer, I was also able to go to a mixer event in Santa Monica this month with all the other Blackstone Launchpads of southern California (UCLA USC). This is a great community of fellow entrepreneurs that I very much like being with and I’m happy to be a part of that community.
On UCI’s 3DPrinting club, I am one of the fundraising committee members. One of the projects that we accomplished this month was the creation of a 3D printed quadcopter. The body of the quadcopter is fully 3D printer (other than nuts/bolts) and is the Hovership MHQ2. I was able to be a big part of this great project as I was the one that selected all the electrical and mechanical parts and did the physics calculations on the thrust, battery, and other characteristics like speed (this little thing should have a top speed of 55mph!). Expect a video soon!
