After talking to a good from and colleague about life and the "famous coders" in the programming industry, and it really made me reflect on my own "online engineer brand". All of this sort of coincidentally coincided with New Years 2020, and while I hardly ever make real resolutions I made a lot of goals for myself in this new year and new decade.
This post may seem like a joke at first, but it's actually not. There are a few words that, especially when you work as a software developer, just have some negative connotation associated with them and should be avoided, especially when you are the bearer of bad news... hehe.
I am not totally certain that these are the real questions employees are asked at Google, but they sound pretty good to me and the author of this original article seems pretty credible. 🤔
This is a great little tip for any software developer, regardless of your programming language of choice. It's these subtle things that can raise you up regular programmer to coding superstar. When sending URLs that link to files on github you may want to reference a specific line number or block of code. The people receiving your code snippets will appreciate these nice highlights, and (subconsciously or not) they'll be thinking, "damn, he's good".
If you have multiple accounts on Github (or whatever git repository host you use) then it can be a little confusing knowing which user you are committing as and how to switch to a different user. In this post I'll show you an easy way to switch between users from the command line.
