311 What Can You Do To Survive A Recession As A Developer? - Simple Programmer Video Podcast

December 13, 2017

► What Can You Do To Survive A Recession As A Developer? ◄

An Economic recession is a period of general economic decline and is typically accompanied by a drop in the stock market, an increase in unemployment, and a decline in the housing market. Generally, a recession is less severe than a depression. The blame for a recession generally falls on the federal leadership, often either the president himself, the head of the Federal Reserve, or the entire administration.

Economic recessions tend to take people into fearful states. People get laid off, lose their jobs and, most of the time, end up in a big squeeze situation.

As a developer, you're not immune to this. You can still face the effects of cyclic economic recessions. However, you can blind yourself.

306 Blockchains: Good Investment? - Simple Programmer Video Podcast

December 8, 2017

► Blockchains: Good Investment? ◄

A blockchain is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography. Each block typically contains a hash pointer as a link to a previous block, a timestamp and transaction data.

Blockchains are gaining visibility when it comes to investment, and it has been raising some questions regarding if it is a good type of investment or not.

Blockchain technology has been heating up in the past several months, thanks in large part to the surge in Bitcoin's price since early May. The cryptocurrency skyrocketed from less than $1,000 in March to an all-time high of $4,440 on August 14.

► I Don't Know How To Learn Programming! ◄

Learning something new requires some strictly techniques in order to maximize your potentials, or, you'll be swimming in circles and you'll most likely to die in the middle of the sea.

302 Online Coding Interviews: How Not To Fail? - Simple Programmer Video Podcast

December 4, 2017

► Online Coding Interviews: How Not To Fail? ◄

Nothing can be more terrifying for a software developer than an interview—especially if it is a coding interview on a whiteboard.

Though, with the right preparation and mindset, an interview can actually be something you look forward to as a chance to show your stuff and exhibit your best skills.

I know the above statement may seem difficult to believe, especially if you’ve had not-so-great interview experiences in the past, but I’ve also had some pretty horrible interviews in my career as a software developer, and I’ve learned from those experiences.

This is a new kind of interview that has only really started to appear in earnest in the last few years, but I believe we’ll see more and more interviews conducted in this fashion.
This kind of interview is much like a phone pre-screen, but instead of taking place over the phone, it will take place over a Skype call, or another video chat equivalent, where you will be asked to solve some programming problems or even do pair programming with an interviewer so they can quickly assess your talent remotely.

How to make sure you'll succeed in an online coding interview? Is this even possible?

DEFINITELY!

What most developers don't take into account is that online coding interviews are not something impossible. You should be ready to do what your interviews wants from you.
