#discussWhich non-computer science degrees apply to skills needed for a career in software development?

  • Practices like thinking abstractly, thinking deeply, reasoning, constructing logical arguments and synthesising knowledge from different fields have been very useful in my programming work and career.
  • Like it has been said before, I believe that the most important skill in software development is logical thinking, just before the ability to learn new skills quickly.
  • After having spent a full year before graduating taking Psychology/Cognitive Science classes before transitioning to Computer Science, they helped improve me as a person and a friend.
  • I'm android developer student and my knowledge is pretty good, but I have to learn a lot of conversation skills to share my opinions and the university has done a good job with me in this affaire.
  • I don't know about degree much .But I think a person with good documentation skills can come in handy in software development.

My Career Story

  • When I announced that I wanted to go to college for computer science my family responded with “what else would you take?” It wasn’t until years after working in tech that I realized that this is not an experience that most young women share.
  • For the next 2 years, I spoke at meetups and local events, taught myself as much as I could, and worked in application security helping developers make more secure apps.
  • I learned that software developers had a lot of aches and pains in regards to security that I had also felt when I was a developer, and especially during my work in incident response and AppSec. My goal in being a developer and cloud advocate was to help push the industry forward, and to help people create more secure software, everywhere.

How One Article Shaped My Career

  • And this idea of "learn JavaScript, not jQuery" has been something that I've tried to instill into all of the developers we employ at my place of work.
  • jQuery, but also this idea of "when should I reach for React?" or "Do I really need to import that NPM package when with a little more work I could do it myself and understand what's going on better to improve our development processes as a whole?" etc...
  • The tooling and the ecosystems provided to developers today can make our jobs so much easier, but I invite you the next time you reach for a framework you ask yourself "why am I doing this" instead of just doing what is the most comfortable and beginning to think in this way of "what will also improve my skills as a developer on every single project I work on?".

My Top Youtube Channels to Learn Web Development and Programming

  • Sorry Guys, I didn't post an article for a month and a half because I didn't have the time because I quit my job and there are requirements that I have to do before leaving the company.
  • Sometimes learning Programming is hard, understanding the concepts and memorizing the syntax, so we need help from other people or sources that can solve our problem.
  • So these are my best Youtube Channels to Learn Web Development and Programming.
  • Shaun is one of the best guys to explain Core Concepts and Fundamentals of a certain technology.
  • He has tutorials for JavaScript, React and Redux, Vuejs, Git and Github and many more.
  • Brad teaches new Programming Languages and New technologies or frameworks and also he shares his experiences in his life and work and being a Software Developer.
  • He has tutorials for NextJS, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Laravel, NodeJS and many more.

The 5-step formula that helped me write cold emails that get responses

  • It comes down to the following steps, which I use to achieve cold email success.
  • Does this sound like an interesting email to open?
  • Make it easy for the reader to have a follow up (i.e., schedule a call, meet for lunch/dinner, etc.).
  • It should be clear to the reader why you are contacting them.
  • Give them all the tools they need to follow up by suggesting a direction action on their end.
  • When you are sending an email and you hide your contact information, how likely will the reader respond to you?
  • It is a professional courtesy to include your contact info in your signature block for every email you send.
  • I would also suggest including your phone number or other contact information earlier in the email, to present it as clearly as possible.
  • Will the reader be interested in reading the entire email?

#discuss$50 coupon contest: Share your #FML moments to win

  • Hello everyone!
  • All you have to do is reply in the comments with your biggest screw-up as a developer and I'll randomly pick a winner.
  • I'll start with my #FML moment.
  • As a first-time founder & CTO, I ran an update query on the orders table in production without the where clause 🤦‍♂.
  • Regular DB backups were not yet the norm in my life & the only backup I had was 4 days old.
  • I had to write the most embarrassing email of my life to clients asking them to furnish details for past orders that they had already placed with us.
  • The worst part is that this wasn't the last time I deleted data in production.
  • But that story's for another day.
  • Think of a moment you said (rather screamed) #FML and let me know in the comments!

15 creepy jobs and how much they pay

  • Jobs that traditionally deal with death, like cremators, morticians, funeral directors, and coroners have annual salaries ranging from $44,000 to $77,000 per year.
  • No formal education is required to become a medical waste worker, but those looking to enter this creepy field should be prepared to complete at least 40 hours of training.
  • Embalmers are highly trained professionals who deal with preparing bodies for funeral services.
  • The term "mortician" is used less often nowadays, and the position generally falls under the larger umbrella of "funeral director." While some morticians are only required to have an associate's degree in mortuary science, some funeral homes prefer a bachelor's degree.
  • Forensic pathologists are highly trained death investigators and are, in most cases, required to have a doctor of medicine degree as well as two years of fellowship under a forensic pathologist.

YES! You Should Be A Mentor!

  • Maybe I could use Twitter to share with others the kind of advice I gave my mentee.
  • Since starting that first mentoring relationship my mentee has grown tremendously personally and with her career.
  • I have grown a solid base of Twitter followers, published over 50 blog posts, been on 4 podcasts, done multiple career interviews, given 5 conference talks, and personally mentored developers from all over the world.
  • While mentoring had a large impact on my career ambitions and completely changed the way I approach interacting with fellow devs online, your experience doesn't have to be that drastic.
  • Mentoring showed me that I have something to offer and in turn, I choose to try and find ways that I could share that with the most people possible.
