I was recently contacted by a 14 year old student based in the UK, and they had some questions for me about my career and job.
This post is about bad engineers, and one aspect of them in particular - solution favouritism.
Soft Skills makes the term sound secondary or less important. This connotation couldn't be further than the truth.
So you just graduated, you need a job, your friends seemed to have got one, magically, but you’re wondering when it’s your time.
"Should I be a specialist or generalist?" Is a question it think we ask ourselves a lot as software developers.
So you’re just starting out new at a company, and maybe it’s your first software job ever. You’re faced with a new, large, unfamiliar codebase and a bug to fix.
A student asked me if they should be blogging, even though they "don't know anything".
As someone that wants to be more active with speaking, I was wondering how you manage to get speaking gigs?
In this somewhat satirical Junior Dev Diaries post, I want to cover office/tech/workplace jargon and terms.
So you want to get better at a certain language or expand your toolbox, and you’ve heard side it’s good to blog about them or open source the finished(ish) project. Great! But you just don’t know what to work on. Nothing is coming to mind and you’re not really sure where to start!
