Today you’ll hear my conversation with Ryan Kulp.

I stumbled upon his stuff while I was googling as I’m trying to learn to code this year. He wrote a great article that caught my attention and once I started reading that, I started digging into everything he’s been working on.

Ryan is the co-founder of Fomo, a social proof app growing rapidly this year, among many other interesting side projects.

We cover how he figured out coding on his own and how he gets into all this random projects and businesses ideas.
