Code Story

Their tech. Their products. Their stories. In a tech startup, how do you get from an idea on the back of a napkin to a fully functioning product? Code Story is a podcast featuring tech leaders, reflecting the roads they travelled and the products they created. On the show, we interview tech visionaries, digging into the critical moments of what it takes to change an industry, and build (and lead) a team that has your back. Hosted by Noah Labhart, this show is a window into the digital startup world. In their own words, tech veterans share what it feels like to create a world class product, how to recover from critical mistakes, and how to scale your solution to the masses. This podcast is for the tech leader, CTO, CEO, developer, software architect, startup leader, disruptive visionary - or the curious minded individual, who wants to know what a builder goes through in creating world changing technology.

S5 Bonus: Brandon White, File Finder


Brandon White started his career from his passion for fishing. In doing so, he wound up building the largest social networking and eCommerce site for sport fisherman. He got to travel around the world, fish all over, and do some amazing things with this company. But honestly, he got burned out on the sports and doesn't fish much anymore. He tells people today to be careful today when people are following their passion, because romanticizing a career doesn't work out for everyone. And, just because people aren't overly passionate about something - but are good at it - they should go after anyway, to help them to buy their time for their passions.

The genesis of his current venture started with his wife, who manages a family office. At one point, she was switching accountants, which required the transfer of a massive amount of documents... the bulk of which was in email. He thought that there had to be a better way to find these documents, across accounts in the cloud.

This is the creation story of File Finder.
