My guest today is a dad, husband, drummer and entrepreneur, who builds awesome stuff online and helps people with their lives and businesses.

He spent his early years travelling around Canada whilst playing in punk-rock bands, which taught him the D.I.Y. work ethic of ‘if you want something to change you have to do it; get it done or stop complaining about it’. This is a work ethic that he still swears by.
He is the host of Hack The Entrepreneur and co-host of The Showrunner podcast and Podcasting Course.. Now, let’s hack… Our very own Jon Nastor.

I started looking at JavaScript frameworks to see if I could find something interesting for my event scheduling project. I’m looking to use them to help me show the schedule itself: when a session of an event is modified, it must be updated in two places…
