About this Episode

If you have a mixture of getting lucky and have a little bit of talent at doing this sort of stuff, you could have an idea that maybe has some success. And I'll say, if you roll a die enough times, you'll at least get a minor success.

Hosts Karin Thorne and Kelly Corey continue the conversation with Ryan Gaus and discuss the success of his open source project, Backstroke. We also chat about where to host your projects online and Ryan tells about what he's building in his workshop.

This episode is part VI of our series: Catching Up with Careers in Code! We chat with founders, instructors/TAs, and students of the first CiC cohort about their experience and where they'd like to see the program go in the future.
