App Idea — About.Me

Posted by & filed under , , , .

I have been using for a while the about.me website and their mobile app Intro by about.me. (I use an Android phone, and as such I am supplying here the link to the Google Play appstore, however I’m sure they have an iOS one too you’ll have to search in the App Store for it.) For […]

Posted by & filed under , .

At Netflix, we made a name for ourselves for being a Java shop. A quick look at our Netflix OSS page on Github reveals a whole suite of projects all Java-based. However, apart from the Java projects that are going on in Netflix – and the JVM-based projects (we DO Groovy and Scala too!) – […]

(Don’t) Blame the Techie

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’m a techie by trade, I’m sure you figured that out from the sort of things I blog about here. As such, I do get rubbed up the wrong way when I hear of so many companies complaining on a regular basis about their technical team. It’s either because they don’t deliver on time. Or […]

No, I’m not advertising some position in any of the startups I have links or affiliations with, don’t worry, this is not one of “those” posts 🙂 I’m touching again on the subject of recruiting — and following recent advice, I am not throwing stones at recruiters, just trying to provide some helpful hints, this […]

Posted by & filed under , , .

If you work in IT, you have probably by now have seen the famous video on YouTube labelled “What most schools don’t teach” — where Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and a few other prominent figures are talking about how easy it is to program, and how only 10% of the USA schools teach programming.

I saw this and thought it was dead funny, so apologies to those of you who already saw it already on some … social networking sites (ironically enough!) — but this is what the future will look like when the YouTube, facebook and Twitter merge:

Why I Think Technology Is Overrated

Posted by & filed under , , .

You might find the opening title of this post shocking – even more so as I’m involved with technology on a daily basis! – and while it is true that I have chosen a very striking title for it to grab your attention hopefully by the end of it you might agree with some of […]
