I felt like 5 years old boy looking at the Christmas tree(full of gifts, of course), when I managed to turn on LED strip from my Raspberry pi. I was cheering, clapping and felt excited. It’s extremely fun to see the physical result of your work. As developers, we sometimes work on very technical stuff like transactions, infrastructure or architecture, which is, yes, extremely interesting. Just the only visual result of them is a scheme on the paper. So, programming magic mirror with LEDs, gives you different effect.
I won’t get into too much details about physics here. I am going to tell how to attach LED strip to your Raspberry pi. Then you can use your LEDs for your magic mirror or… Christmas, disco lights or anything you can think of.
Physical part – it’s such fun to see how your idea gets a shape. This time I want to tell how to physically build Magic Mirror – so I don’t talk too much and go straight to business.
Continue on the technical part of interview. I am a full stack developer and here I answered some questions about network, REST, Spring and React frameworks.
Continue on the technical part of the interview. Here I answered some questions about programming languages, object oriented programming, design patterns and coding culture.
After being in both sides of the interviews I want to share some questions. There are thousands or milions of different questions or forms of questions, but these are really common ones. In the next four posts I will share Java/full stack develper interview questions and here I start with pure Java.
Dear software developer, have you ever felt useless, lonely or irrelevant?
Post your CV on the internet. You will feel like a rock star when your fans recruiters want to reach out and get your attention. Interviewing is a part of our career development. When you prepare for an interview – you study and learn new (and repeat old good) stuff, meet companies and people. But… it’s tiring, time consuming and sometimes annoying process. I want to make our lives easier and share some tips about interviewing. I focus, of course, on software developer’s position.
New Year’s(NY) resolutions – start doing sport, give up smoking and give up giving resolutions. People fail their resolutions faster than a night bus driver reaches his destination. Blue Monday, I first heard about this day once arrived to UK. This is the most depressing day of a year. The scientists created a formula which considers time after Christmas, all money spending and NY resolutions failure. The result – depressing Blue Monday in mid January.
Persistance and optimism are two main powers which drive me forward. I can spend ages and give more than my best, when finishing everything I’ve started. If something goes wrong, optimism shows me the way, when persistence just keeps repeating me “push yourself” and “don’t give up”. In that case, I end up with a lesson instead of a problem.
Keep smiling and reach better. #ciziunas
