  • Fun Recruiter Messages

    Earlier today in the #coderabbi Freenode IRC channel, we were discussing recruiter messages. I thought I’d share one of my favorite gems from over the years.

    Would you like to join one of the fastest growing start-ups in Rhode Island? Would you like to be apart [sic] company that makes dreams come true? If you are passionate about Ruby and Opensource technology development than [sic] this is the place for you. Wouldn’t it be nice to come home every day and know you are doing what you love in a company that loves your work? This is not just your average “job”. This is opportunity; this is a blur between dreams and reality; this is the opportunity that is going to slingshot you to happiness & career satisfaction.

    Without shaming, ridiculing, or calling out any individuals, what’s your favorite recruiter message?

    PHP Beyond the web
    Luis Martinez Ulloa
    PHP books
    Rob Aley
    This book is a real guide to developers who want to take advantage of the general purpose capabilities of PHP to make things different besides Web apps.

    I recommend this book because I believe it is complete, as its chapters follow solid guidelines to successfully develop non-Web based PHP projects.

  • Developers Life is a Trade-Off

    At Qafoo, we train a lot of people on topics like object oriented software design, automated testing and more. It happens quite often that an attendee asks questions like "Which is the best solution for problem class $x?", "What is the optimal tool for task $y" or "There is a new technology $z, is that the future of web development?". Some are disappointed when I reply "It depends" or "That does not exist", but that's the truth.There is no silver bullet and one of the most important skills every developer needs to hone is to assess possibilities and to find the best trade-off for the current challenge.To make that point clear I'm giving three examples from my personal experience, some where it went well and some where it did not.
