#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.

Master & Dynamic’s new MW07 Plus earbuds boast improved battery life and active noise cancellation

  • The MW07 Plus buds have vastly improved battery life, both in the earbuds and in the included charging case.
  • These only allow you to pair them with one device at a time, and their high $299 price makes cheaper, similarly capable options more appealing, like Sony’s WF-1000XM3 (I can’t believe I’m referring to $229 headphones as cheap).
  • You don’t have to pay $299 to get good noise cancellation, a USB-C charging case, and excellent sound quality, but it’s a worthy investment if you value a stylish presentation.
  • These have fewer microphones than the Plus, they lack the ambient listening mode and active noise cancellation, and only the right earbud will work independently.
  • Compared to the Jaybird Vista earbuds, these are similarly priced, have longer battery life per charge, and their aptX codec support runs laps around the Vista’s lousy SBC support.

On the boat with Women In Agile Open in Cleveland, 2019

  • The text of “You will be there when it’s right” made the whole mess worthwhile, proved that the Open Space principals were alive and in practice at the conference, and gave me permission to take the time I needed to recover.
  • Watching the people who had things to share, and being willing to combine sessions in order to expand the perspectives that each had to offer on similar topics made the openness of the sessions even more welcome: being able to switch groups and contribute to multiple areas was a necessary thing a few times!
  • I was sad to leave the physical group: I didn’t get a chance to explore ideas with everyone I wanted to (nor could I have with even a week of time!) but the probability of staying in contact via the Slack channel makes it an ongoing conversation.

Welcome Thread - v45

  • I'm a FE Developer living in Montevideo, I also love art and music.
  • DEV helps to fulfill that: a young community, a tech focused group, and nobody knows me so I can post my small tech-related thoughts freely.
  • Hiya nice people here, sweet greetings from Algeria, I'm a system engineer trying to code, mainly Angular apps with some GCP services, and here to share with you my experiments and tricks :D Also music, birds breeding, fishing, and sports ...
  • Full-stack developer based in Dallas, trying to learn the Angular ropes and .NET idiosyncrasies (needed spell check for that one).
  • I got into coding a year back - starting off with HTML & CSS, I'm nowhere near a "Developer" but I certainly like learning & I've been having a bunch of fun with my open-source contributions!

5 things everyone should be doing to support their LGBTQ coworkers

  • Another good strategy is to highlight the work of LGBTQ+ colleagues and be proactive in creating an environment where they feel comfortable talking about their experiences, said Nicholas Grant, a psychologist who specializes in LGTBQ+ issues and public policy.
  • This helps make sure LGBTQ+ colleagues feel safe about being themselves at work.
  • A basic way to show respect for your colleagues is by making sure you use the correct pronouns — he, she, they, or sometimes others like ze — for how that person identifies themselves.
  • Finally, avoid putting an individual person in the uncomfortable position of speaking for the whole group — for instance, if your coworker is a lesbian, that doesn't mean she necessarily wants to talk about Ellen's latest political faux pas or weigh in on the latest LGBTQ+ rights controversy in front of the whole office.

Forget trying to motivate your employees — help them do it themselves with these 6 tricks

  • I hear this sentiment of "how to motivate employees" frequently from managers we work with who use Know Your Team, and I often am asked countless questions about it.
  • From research we've gathered across the years, conversations with leaders who we admire on our podcast, and insights from 1,000+ managers from our online community, The Watercooler, here are six things we can do as leaders to create the conditions for employees to motivate themselves.
  • As a result, a key part of effectively creating the conditions for strong employee motivation in your team is to figure out: Well, what motivates them?
  • While you can't always individualize and perfectly match someone's project and goals with what they are most motivated by, you can create positive conditions for motivation by enabling choice in what people can do.

  • How's the open source hacking coming along?
  • We currently have over 100 open PRs, mostly from the community.
  • This PR implements #162, and adds a precommit hook via lint-stage and husky.

  • Built everything locally and it looks good.
  • Which having used rust with Kafka before should be pretty easy to create to implement.
  • My repo for curated design tools has been receiving some love lately.
  • A curated list of the tools we use to enhance our design wokflow.
  • And on my part I've been digging deep in the dev.to repo and I think i'm beginning to get the hang of things.
  • I'm confident that I'll open a pull request and maybe even become a regular contributor.
  • Want to contribute to open source and help make the DEV community stronger?
