AirBnB | Aloft – The sharing/caring economy

As I write this, I am sitting on the edge of my bed listening to my older brother snore. We’re both crashing at our parents’ home in Bronx, NY. I initially planned to spend a couple of weeks, but the more I think about where things stand, with my finances, mental state and goals, I […]

FizzBuzz with Linq

I was reviewing potential interview questions and one intrigued me. The question was to provide an  alternate way to do FizzBuzz. I had previously done the straightforward loop method and pondered on it for a while. While washing our car, I had an inspired thought that I could easily do it  with Linq. I eventually came […]
