Dev Tunes Vol. 1: Caribou

Daniel Snaith, aka Caribou, has that mix of electronic beats that get me in the mood. A veteran producer, he has a particular interest in long DJ performances. I think this may be the reason why I find it so good to focus and start a coding session.

Fun fact: Dan has a Ph.D. in mathematics. 🤓

The Hobbit

There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.

We all have the potential to be adventurous; it doesn’t have to be an epic trip like Bilbo’s, adventure has a lot of different meanings, we just need to find our own, be brave and grow.

Dev Tunes

There are two types of people in this world: The ones who listen to music while working and the ones who don’t.

There is an actual debate on whether music is good or bad for different types of work and activities and also several studies on this subject. Still, apparently, there is no definite answer, so, why don’t we skip the arguments and just do it if it feels good.

I’m part of the musical kind of developer, I need my music to code, and there are some tunes that just get me in the right mood.

I’m sure there are different strokes for different folks, but I want to share my Dev Tunes discoveries, so let’s make this a series.

Cross-Functional Teams

Let’s just allow people to gather in a single room or chat, and to give their best without limitations of what they can do. Let them be an independent unit that knows how to do their piece of work with autonomy.

Microsoft Certification Roadmap

There are different opinions on whether professional certifications worth it. I believe in continuous learning, never stop being a student; therefore, I think certifications are an excellent incentive to keep learning.

So, getting certified has become one of my professional goals for this year. I’ve been working with different technologies throughout my career; however, Microsoft technologies have been a constant for several years. I started some research about the certification options they offered and discovered that last year, 2019, they revamped their certification program with a whole new set of role-based certifications.

Here is the path I’ve chosen; let’s hope I’ll get there soon.
