Considering REST API calls for WordPress were available since version 4.7, to me this was an opportunity to make a new experience. I wanted to consume blog posts and reuse them.
My approach was to consume those posts into an interface which could be cut and pasted to any web page. The empowering feature would be that the user could customize the colors of the widget with just a few clicks. So I created an Angular 6 proof of concept in 2018 which I positioned to be an affiliate marketing tool for SleepScore Labs. Do note, this app never went into production.
However, because of its ability to promote the brand from as easy as a copy/paste, it inspired business development to think about integrating SleepScore offerings in other ways.
In 2019, the creation of B2B sleep programs for companies promoting health and wellness to their employees was realized and a new revenue stream for SleepScore Labs was established.

The fundamentals for this were based on Addy Osmani’s explanation of The Module Pattern. A developer would call the object Aura and pass in an object literal of key-values to kickstart the animation. I used gulp for build tasks such as minifying code. Then each platform could host the final build artifacts on their respective app.
After an individual campaign of $800+ it was time to get to work.
I started out strong but was unable to maintain a dominant series and ended the match through points. There are several personal lessons for me on this one and as long as I am of sound mind and body, I will continue to pursue my development in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
That said, the overall event exceeded it’s goal with a final tally of $150K+. My donation page is still very much active, so please consider a donation to Tap Cancer Out which directly benefits Alex’s Lemonade Stand and their mission to change the lives of children with cancer through funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer.
Take back your content and own your SEO. If you do newsletters through Mailchimp and leverage WordPress for your content management system, Chris Coyier has a great overview of bringing value back to your domain by syndicating your newsletter content through RSS feeds.
In 2020, I’ll be fighting. However, this is no ordinary fight. I am taking part in the Tap Cancer Out BJJ Open and along with my teammates at Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu Carlsbad and competitors, I’ll be fighting for those who are in the fight of their lives – children with cancer.
Since 2012, tournaments like this one have helped Tap Cancer Out raise and donate more than $1.36 million for various cancer causes including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, St. Baldrick’s, and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
I would be honored if you’d support my fundraising efforts with a donation. It’s secure and 100% tax deductible. If you’d prefer to pay by check, please mail to: Tap Cancer Out, 2 Enterprise Dr, Suite 307, Shelton, CT 06484.
If you can’t make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and/or Twitter! Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page!

A video walkthrough of a VueJS Data Visualization Web App I developed for SleepScore.com. This app acts as an embeddable widget so the codebase can be hosted on any domain or mobile app. The end user is able to compare and contrast sleep data based on region and gender. This was optimized mainly for iPad/tablet use cases for CES.
