► I Don't Know How To Learn Programming! ◄

Let me be rough and dry here: most developers don't know a s**t about learning and improving their careers. This is absolute truth. And I'm not saying this in a mean way, but as a way to alert most of you about something you've been doing wrong for most of your lives.

Learning something new requires some strictly techniques in order to maximize your potentials, or, you'll be swimming in circles and you'll most likely to die in the middle of the sea.

What should you do if you don't know how to learn programming? What techniques can you implement in order to maximize your learning abilities and get the best time/benefits in your programming career?

► The 2017's Christmas Gift List For Software Developers (And Other Tech Geeks) ◄

In true Simple Programmer tradition, I’ve put together this year’s Christmas List for software developers, programmers, and tech junkies.

Programmers are picky people and, if your spouse/SO/family member is one, you might be finding it a huge pain in the neck shopping for them this Christmas.

Or maybe you’re a programmer yourself, and you’re tired of receiving yet another loud Christmas sweater from a well-meaning, if misguided, relative.

If so, you can not-so-subtly share this Christmas List. It contains my top picks for tech items this year – products anyone in the technology field will appreciate.

► Online Coding Interviews: How Not To Fail? ◄

Nothing can be more terrifying for a software developer than an interview—especially if it is a coding interview on a whiteboard.

Though, with the right preparation and mindset, an interview can actually be something you look forward to as a chance to show your stuff and exhibit your best skills.

I know the above statement may seem difficult to believe, especially if you’ve had not-so-great interview experiences in the past, but I’ve also had some pretty horrible interviews in my career as a software developer, and I’ve learned from those experiences.

This is a new kind of interview that has only really started to appear in earnest in the last few years, but I believe we’ll see more and more interviews conducted in this fashion.
This kind of interview is much like a phone pre-screen, but instead of taking place over the phone, it will take place over a Skype call, or another video chat equivalent, where you will be asked to solve some programming problems or even do pair programming with an interviewer so they can quickly assess your talent remotely.

How to make sure you'll succeed in an online coding interview? Is this even possible?

DEFINITELY!

What most developers don't take into account is that online coding interviews are not something impossible. You should be ready to do what your interviews wants from you.

► Are You Looking For Problems Or Solutions? ◄

I like to say that there are two types of people in the world: the ones that look for problems and the ones that look for solutions?

Recently I did a video on how to solve the "no audio" problem in the iPhone's recent model.

Most people complained about... Well... Just watch the video.

However, let me ask you a question. Are you a person that is looking for problems or solutions?
