It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye. Likewise, it’s all fun and games until someone loses access to their private and/or business data because they trusted it to someone else.

You don’t have to be an expert seeker to be able to quickly duck out (it’s like the verb ‘googling’, but used to describe searching the interwebs through a decent search engine, like DuckDuckGo) all the stories about little guys being fucked over by “don’t be evil” type of corporate behemoths.

Interview with the Cookie Monster

I had the privilege and sometimes the burden of interviewing dozens of developers in some of the companies I worked for previously. Some of those interviews were, well, immensely interesting.

There are few interviews in particular that I don’t think I’ll ever forget. The next story is a recollection of one of those experiences.

Don’t ignore rejection emails

Many people are currently facing unemployment or already got laid off. Times are tough. We’re amidst major lockdowns, quarantines, and we’re uncertain of our financial future.
