The broken Promise of the Mobile Web

High end mobile devices have been with us now for almost 7 years and they have utterly transformed the way we access information. Mobile phones and smartphones that have access to the Internet and host smart applications are in the hands of a large percentage of the population of the world. In many places even very remote, cell phones and even smart phones are a common sight. I’ll never forget when I was in India in 2011 I was up in the Southern Indian mountains riding an elephant out of a tiny local village, with an elephant herder
in front riding atop of the elephant in front of us. He was dressed in traditional garb with the loin wrap and head cloth/turban as did quite a few of the locals in this small out of the way and not so touristy village. So we’re slowly trundling along in the forest and he’s lazily using his stick to guide the elephant and… 10 minutes in he pulls out his cell phone from his sash and starts texting. In the middle of texting a huge pig jumps out from the side of the trail and he takes a picture running...(Read whole news on source site)

Today we’re providing a third CTP of the next version of Visual Studio, to gather your early feedback. For more information on this release, see Visual Studio “14” CTPs and the Visual Studio Blog.

There is no WE in a Job Interview

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
This is a pet peeve of mine. When interviewing candidates, I’m usually asking some variant of “tell me about a feature you developed that you are proud of”. I’m using this question to gauge several metrics. Things like what is the candidate actually proud of, what was he working on, are they actually proud of what they did? One of the more annoying tendencies is  for a candidate to give a reply in the form of “what we did was…”. In particular if s/he goes on to never mention something that s/he specifically did. And no, “led the Xyz team
in…” is a really bad example.  I’m not hiring your team, in which case I might actually be interested in that. I’m actually interested in the candidate, personally. And if the candidate won’t tell me what it was that s/he did, I’m going to wonder if they played Solitaire all day. ...(Read whole news on source site)
