As discussed in the previous post, a lot of developers move to management positions at some point in their careers. Now let's turn this around, instead of asking what is going on in the industry, let’s check what is going on with you. In particular, do you have a career plan at all?

Making the World a Better Place with Big Data

The editors I've been using--which one is your favorite?

The other day when I wrote about Vim and how to get started with it, I got a bit nostalgic with the editors I’ve been using over the years. Therefore, I thought I’d list the editors I’ve been using over the years. It would be very interesting and great if you’d like to share in the comments which editor you are using, and why you prefer it! Or with which editor you started your developer career!

Modeling Exercise: The Grocery Store's Checkout Model

The grocery store checkout model exercise deals with the following scenario. You have a customer that is scanning products in a self-checkout lane, and you need to process the order. The end result might be a Git repository that allows you to see the full approach that was used and how it changed over time. Ideally, you should see a lot of churn in the beginning, but then you’ll have a lot less work to do as your architecture settles down.

Ultimately, anyone in the tech space is going to have to make a number of product and market decisions. But make sure you apply the same logic to your personal career decisions as well.
