I’ve attended a Meetup hosted by the Central Florida Web Developers User Group last night. The topic was AngularJS Fundamentals lead by Kris Ivanov, the Co-Founder and Principal Consultant at CraftTek Consulting Inc.
This is definitely worth sharing.
I’ve had the pleasure this week to sit through presentations by each of these non-profits organizations. To be honest it was a bit rough for me for one afternoon. Some of the stories are heart breaking. On the other hand, it motivates you to want to be involved in any way you can. Please take the time to learn more about these organizations.

Greetings and welcome to the long awaited Sykespro blog! Over the last 5 years I’ve been encouraged to begin blogging but kept talking myself out of it. Maintaining a blog appeared to me as a huge time commitment, and I knew once I was going to commit I was going to be fully engaged. That time has come, here is my attempt to make my mark in the blogging world.
My name is Daniel Sykes. I’m a 32 year old married father of a beautiful baby girl living and enjoying the sun in Tampa FL. I’ve created this blog to cover information related to my professional life as a web developer and entrepreneur. It will contain solutions to problems I’ve encountered that I may need to resort back to and any other random things I feel like sharing. I work as the Application Development Director at Panther International LLC, which my efforts are geared towards product development, systems design and implementation.
I’m a big fan of agile methodology focusing primarily on the scrum framework. Also experienced in a wide variety of server and client side software and programing languages which includes C#, ASP.NET,MS SQL, HTML5, CSS and JQuery (to name a few). You can expect plenty of post related to these areas.
There is also a level of transparency I would like to share through this blog. I’ve had successes in my career but probably twice as many failures. Sharing these experiences I hope can help someone else. These will include post related to leadership, productivity, time management and any other self building blocks.
There will be a new post every Wednesday at noon. But don’t be too surprised if I decide to sneak one in before this day. I personally look forward to the unplanned post. These will most likely be jewels I’ve stumbled on unexpectedly.
This should go without saying, but obviously anything I write here is of my own opinion. I’m not speaking for my employer or any one else.
