At this time last year, I felt a little down. All around me, friends were achieving milestones, making resolutions, and declaring high hopes for the new year. I couldn’t quite figure out what my goals were or what I was looking forward to. Little did I know that — in many ways — 2019 would … More Ringing in 2020!

If you want an … More Virtual reality with React: Moving from React VR to React 360
Imagine finding yourself at the top of a thrilling roller coaster, traveling through a vein in the human body, or being transported to the bustle of a faraway city — all without leaving your room. With Facebook’s new Oculus Go, I was able to treat my mother to a gondola ride through Venice on Mother’s … More Facebook’s new Oculus Go increases access to high-quality VR
Last night, my sister and I went out to dinner at one of Boston’s newest restaurants, Spyce, which opened five days ago. Via a large touch screen, I keyed in my order — part of a menu with fully customizable options for people with allergies or special diets — paid with credit card, and received … More An award-winning Boston restaurant run by robots
Recently, I published a post introducing Recompose — a utility belt for React — in a React VR meditation app called Find Your Zen. You can find the original post here. It covers some awesome aspects of Recompose and functional programming in general. We wound up with a refactored application, but as with all programming … More Recompose with React VR, Pt. 2
