Let's talk about Online Privacy! So, I see a lot of people bragging about online privacy and totally freaking out about that topic. I've seen and read a lot of different things about that.

So, I have received this question from a fan of Simple Programmer, asking me what do I do to protect my address online, especially since I have become public like that, creating a YouTube channel and everything.

People are really concerned about people discovering their addresses and they are really trying everything out to protect their identities. Bottom line is: if someone wants to track you down and kill you, they will. No matter how much you protect yourself and try to hide your address and everything else.

So, what are the best practices for protecting your address online? Watch this video and find out!

Recently, I was with my wife in the living room and she was zapping through the TV and stopped watching Breaking Bad. You know I don't watch TV and I've talked about it several times before.

However, I need to confess that this show got my attention. I was drawn to the TV and I started watching Breaking Bad. Here is the show synopsis:
"A struggling high school chemistry teacher, Walter White (Bryan Cranston), is diagnosed with inoperable, advanced lung cancer. On a ride along with his DEA agent brother-in-law Hank Schrader (Dean Norris), Walter sees a former student of his, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), fleeing the scene of a meth lab. He later contacts Jesse and devises a scheme to become partners in an attempt to combine their skills to manufacture and distribute methamphetamine, with Walter cooking the product and Jesse using his street connections to distribute it. Walter says he wants to provide financial stability for his pregnant wife, Skyler (Anna Gunn) and disabled son, and to pay for his expensive cancer treatment. During Walter and Jesse's first days of selling Albuquerque's finest meth, they encounter a series of problems with local drug dealers. He continues to produce meth despite these setbacks using the alias 'Heisenberg'."
Source: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0903747/synopsis?ref_=ttpl_pl_syn

However, the biggest thing that I got from the show was the life lesson that I could extract from it. Walter woke up for life. Did you wake up already?

A lot of programmers ask me this question: Should I get MCSD certifications?

Well, to answer this question, first, we need to address what are MCSD and talk about if certifications are a good way to build a viable (and smart) career choice.

For those who don't know, "The Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer is Microsoft's prevailing certification for programmers and application developers. The MCSD covers current Visual Studio versions (for the MCSD: Application Lifecycle Management cert) and also emphasizes HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, C#, ASP.NET, Azure, Web Services and SharePoint.

Within each credential you'll find various specialties that focus on specific job roles or target specific application types. There are a lot of options to choose from in this program, which currently includes five different MCSD credentials, including Windows Store Apps, Web Applications, SharePoint Applications, Azure Solutions Architect and Application Lifecycle Management.

Depending on the MCSD certification sought, candidates can expect to take three or four exams to obtain the credential. There are no required training courses, though all MCSD exams are associated with one or more Microsoft Official Curriculum course offerings. Look for online learning deals for the best bang for your buck.

Because of the MCSD: Windows Store App credential requires proficiency in a programming language (either HTML5 or C#), candidates who pass one of the associated programming exams earn a Microsoft Specialist certification in Visual Studio. The current programming exams are Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 (exam number 480) and Programming in C# (exam number 483)."
Source: http://www.tomsitpro.com/articles/programming-certifications,2-274-2.html

So, these are one of the most common types of certifications and people can be really obsessed with it.

However, are these the only option to boost your career? What should you really consider when it comes to getting certifications? Should you even consider getting certifications if you're looking for a job?

There comes a time when someone you know will definitely ask you for references.

"Oh John, could you please refer me on LinkedIn? I would love to get a recommendation from you."

Sure... But only if you do a good job. if you don't do a good job I wouldn't even consider doing it. And you should do the same.

Some people like to give references and give people a mixed review. I consider it pointless since it will only harm the reference for the people and talk bad things about them won't do any good for any sides of this relationship.

Wanna know more about if you should give people references and what is the best way to do it? Watch this video and find out!

This can be a really bad situation. Imagine this: You left your previous company but it does own you some stock options. You try to get it right, you call them constantly but they do not respond you. You start to believe that they won't answer you and your stock options will be gone forever.

So, what do you do? What are your choices in a situation like this?

There are a lot of different things you can do if you want to get your stock options back.

One of the strategies you can use to make them get in touch with you is being annoying. Literally. Start calling them, start emailing them, don't lose touch with them. At some time they will become so irritated that they'll give up.

Another way is hiring a lawyer to write a letter for you. Receiving a letter from a lawyer might be intimidating and you might end up wanting to do it.

So, how fo you make your previous company answer you? Listen to this podcast and find out!

How many times have you had to grit your teeth, take a deep breath and silently repeat to yourself, "The customer is always right"? This is a motto that's drilled into every young retail or hospitality worker, and has somehow made its way into the psyches of established business owners.

The problem is, the customer isn't always right, and always thinking otherwise can result in serious disservice to you, as a software developer.

There are a lot of different opinions on the internet about why the clients is always right. He is paying you after all. So, what happens when you and your client's opinion get into conflict? Is he always right? Do you need to hear him?

In today's video I received an email asking me if he should trust his clients, which was suggesting some really bad changes to the web development project he was designing.

What should he do in a situation like this? Should he believe his client and do what he was told to do or should he position himself, tell that the client is wrong and stick with his idea?

Today we are going to talk about real programming.

Composition Vs. Inheritance. Have you ever heard about these terms? How should you choose between these two terms?

One of the advantages of Object-Oriented programming language is code reuse. There are two ways we can do code reuse either by implementation of inheritance (IS-A relationship), or object composition (HAS-A relationship). Although the compiler and Java virtual machine (JVM) will do a lot of work for you when you use inheritance, you can also get at the functionality of inheritance when you use composition.

As you all know, Inheritance is fundamental to object-oriented programming. A programming language may have objects and messages, but without inheritance, it is not object-oriented (merely “object-based”, but still polymorphic).

Composition is also fundamental to every language. Even if the language does not support composition (rare these days!), humans still think in terms of parts and components. It would be impossible to break down complex problems into modular solutions without composition.

So, how can you possibly know what is the best? How to choose between composition and inheritance? Listen to this episode and find out!

Some people like to have a web presence. I've talked several times before about the importance of having a strong online presence when it comes to marketing yourself and building a successful career for yourself.

However, there are a lot of different ways in which you can create a web presence and one of them consists in choosing a name, whether it is for yourself or for a brand you're going to create.

So, how do you come up with a good name for yourself? How do you come up with a good web presence name? What are the best practices for choosing a good web presence name?

There are some things you need to take into consideration when it comes to choosing a good name for yourself. You might want to create a brand that is simple and powerful.

Besides that, choosing a web presence name does not mean only creating something that is easy for people to understand. People with names that can suffer from discrimination might also benefit from having a nickname or something like that.

So, do you wanna know more about choosing a strong, powerful and simple web presence name? Watch this video and find out!

Some people seem to attract the worst situations for their life. At first, it might seem like it is random, but a more profound look end up revealing some actions that kind of justify those things.

Some people still have some attitudes that get them in some difficult situations. One of them is doing things that will only harm people that surround them and that won't bring any benefits to both parties.

In this video I will discuss a little bit more about doing things that don't bring any benefits to some of the parties involved and why you should be avoiding this type of situations. Aim for win-win situations, not win-lose or lose-lose.

So, this is such a difficult question I decided to answer with a video. Some people get married to other programmers and this is an awesome thing to do. Not only that, you might find your "soulmate" at your company, which is something more common than you might imagine.

So... Is it working with your spouse a good option? There are a lot of things that you need to take into account before answering this question.

Have you ever worked with your spouse before at the same company? How was the experience? Is this a healthy practice to keep the relationship going? What is the downsides of it?

There is a lot of discussions when it comes to if you should pay off your house when it comes to real estate investment. I struggled with it myself when I first began to invest in Real Estate.

There is no right or answer to this question. Real Estate can be a really complex thing with a lot of variables and you should be able to come up with the right solution for you, in your specific case.

In that situation, you'll need to evaluate if the interest rate of your house will justify you paying off it. For example, if you are able to compensate this investment with other investment and it shows as a lucrative option, then this should be a good idea.

Everything that we do causes a reaction. Our actions are always balanced by some kind of reaction. Sometimes, this reaction comes before our action and this is what we call that "everything has a price".

However, a lot of people don't know how to handle with that "price" and it is easy to see that they end up being frustrated or even mad about it.

Paying the price for your actions is something that we all need to do, sooner or later. The best thing, so, would be to be willing to pay twice the price for everything you do.

If you're willing to pay twice the price you're expecting, you're not only going to get much better results but also you're going to enter in a mindset where everything you do will come off as profit, and it will make you happier.

Envy is something funny right? Here is the definition of "Envy" according to Dictionary.com:
"noun, plural envies.
1. a feeling of discontent or covetousness with regard to another's advantages, success, possessions, etc.
2. an object of such feeling:
Her intelligence made her the envy of her classmates."

There is no need to lie here. Let's be honest with each other. I've been there too. I know that you've been envious of someone at least during some part of your life.

There are situations where we simply can control how we feel about someone else's success. We start to feel a feeling that we don't even know how to define. Something starts to burn inside of us... That's envy.

So, how can you start enjoying someone else's success instead of start hating that someone is making more success than you? How can you shift your mindset when it comes to envying the success of someone?

Online dating websites... Hm... Controversial question, isn't it? I know you, as a man, probably has thought about enrolling in an online dating website several times.

Online dating websites have that mysterious and catchy thing about them. In your head, it seems like a very good choice. You think it will be easy to pick up women if you create a profile on one of these online dating websites, you think this will be easy for you.

However, this choice might not be as smart as you think. In fact, online dating websites can show up as being a very dumb choice for men and the reason might be very different from what you're thinking right now.

However, there are places and places to promote your content, especially if you have a brand. in today's video, I received a question from a reader asking me how should he use programming events to promote his brand.

This developer has a programming brand with a service that he offers and he wants to promote it at events and conferences. How should he do it?

First things I want to say is: don't do it. Conferences are not the best place to promote it.

Coming to the decision of quitting college is already a hard process. This is a difficult decision which has to overcome a lot of challenges, including the ones imposed by society, parents, friends, the future and the "security" you get when you get a degree.

So, you came up with the decision that you want to quit college. If you're just like 80% of people who are in college, you're probably a teenager that is still under your parent's care and you still own them some explanation about your life, especially when it comes to school and college.

So... how do you tell your parents you want to quit college? Difficult, isn't it?

I'm going to start off saying that this isn't an easy task. In fact, it can be very difficult and there is no EASY way to do that. What you can do, instead, is making it less worse.

So, what is the best way of approaching your parents and telling them you don't want to be in college anymore? Should you be aggressive? Should you argue? Should you present the facts and your arguments? Listen to this episode and find out!

Confidence. Something that some programmers have and others lack. A thing that separates successful programmers from average programmers.

A lot of different programmers have confidence issues and it definitely holds them down when it comes to advancing in their careers. The biggest confidence problems that programmers suffer is regarding their code.

I've talked with several developers since I started Simple Programmers and they all seem to think that the code they write is not good enough. Some can't even write their own code.

So, how to do you build confidence in yourself to start writing your own code? How do you overcome that plateau where you're only able to copy someone else's code?

What strategy should you employ if you're looking into writing your own code and creating your own applications? Watch this video and find out!

Building muscle is something difficult that a lot of people try but few are able to really get it done. It involved discipline, continuous motivation, hard work and a serious gym routine.

However, some people don't go to the gym for a lot of different reasons: they don't have time, they don't enjoy it, they don't have how to pay for a membership, etc.

So, can you build muscles without going to the gym? I receive this question a lot, from different people all around the world. They ask me what are some good exercises for you to do at home for those who don't go to the gym.

So, I decided to record this video to answer this question. Can you really build muscles from home, without going to the gym? Watch this video and find out!

Lots of programmers work with automation and creating solutions for companies to reduce costs and increase the profit of whoever hire them. However, this work can become tedious and make you bored very easily if you don't take the proper action to reverse this thing.

So, I've received a question from a reader asking me if there were any industries in which they could be creative. Are there industries where developers and programmers can be more creative than in others?

The answer is: I don't think so.

The creativity will definitely depend on how you choose to do your job and how you do your job. It depends on how much effort you put on your choices and how your brain works to overcome the problems you're faced with.

A lot of people lack self-confidence. Over and over, especially nowadays, we see more and more people complaining about all of those things, having a lot of difficulties building self-trust, self-worthiness, and self-confidence.

However, there are also other types of people: who THINK that they are confident, but they really aren't. Most people build something inside them that looks more like arrogance than with confidence. And this is definitely a trap you should be avoiding.

There is what I call "TRUE" self-confidence which is definitely something you should be aware and should be aiming when it comes to developing yourself.

There is definitely a difference between building confidence and building TRUE self-confidence. Wanna know more about how you can become a TRUE self-confident person? Watch this video and find out!

I believe in living a balanced life. I believe in living a good life where you can actually enjoy life, your achievements and all the good things that this world has to offer.

We all have different areas that we should be able to administrate and balance: work, life, relationships, fitness, health, investments, etc.

Today I wanted to talk about two in specific: work and life.

How do you find balance in a busy life, working at a company, in your projects and also finding some time off to relax? In this video I received a question about someone asking me if it was ok for him to take some time off to relax.

I confess that I also struggle with that too. I find it hard to find the balance between work and relax time, most to the fact that I don't make differences between work and relaxation and I don't think work is a bad thing.

So, is it ok to take some time off to relax? And how much should you take? Watch this video and find out!
