I had the privilege of speaking with the OKC-Sharp developer meetup group in Oklahoma City this week and talking about why and how I learned to code in order to build our mobile app. I talk about how I learned to code and share tips for others that want to learn.

I spent a few hours building a drip irrigation system for the children’s home garden (click here to read more about the children’s home garden project) the day before our Florida trip last month. Ironically, it rained most of the time and I wasn’t able to get a lot of video.
