How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Job Hunt

This is a story about finding a job as a senior software engineer in Toronto - with a twist: just having moved there from Germany.I was prepared.I had a plan.But it failed completely - at first.I had to adapt and learn.It was a roller coaster ride.I tell my story because it might help others learn from my mistakes.This is not meant as a bigger statement about immigration or the state of the tech scene.

26 Lessons From Being a Developer at a Startup

In the last three years,I worked for a small B2B startup in Berlin.I was the first backend developer and joined the ride of growing it from 200 to 720 business customers,from $200K to $3.2M annual revenue and from 5 to 25 employees.The following lessons are a very simplistic,personal summary of what I have learned during that time.Nothing more,nothing less.Enjoy.(1) Retrospectives are crucial.

The hunt for an immutable,type safe data record in JavaScript

Ever since working with Scala's case classes I was hooked on the idea of having a type safe data record that was also immutable.What's not to like?It's type safe and immutable (duh).So I wanted to see if I can get the same thing in JavaScript - the most mutable and dynamic language known to man.class Person { givenName;familyName;} This will serve as our starting point: a simple class in JavaScript.

Zero to Om - Act 6

Welcome to our next act.Today we're going to meet a few additional libraries that'll help us write great Om applications.Let's get started!As always,I strongly recommend reading the previous post first if you haven't done so already.sablono In a previous post I showed you how the application's UI is rendered:(dom/div nil (header) (dom/input #js {:id "new-todo" :ref "newField" :placeholder "What needs to be done?

Zero to Om - Act 5

In this part we will have a closer look at the app's build configuration and discover what it can do for us.The source code can be found on GitHub.Note: I strongly recommend reading the previous post first if you haven't done so already.The Build Config The project's build configuration is defined in project.clj.It is written in Clojure and looks like this:;;project.clj,part 1 (defproject todomvc "0.

Zero to Om - Act 4

Until now the application is rather boring.It just displays data.But we want to actually use it!In this post we will take a look at how the app reacts (no pun intented) to user input.The source code can be found on GitHub.Note: I strongly recommend reading the previous post first if you haven't done so already.Managing state is tricky.Each framework has its own mechanisms to detect and handle state changes.

Zero to Om - Act 3

In this third post we'll take a look at how the app is initialized and rendered.The source code can be found on GitHub.Note: I strongly recommend reading the previous post first if you haven't done so already.For increased comprehension we will jump through the two files and not go through them from top to bottom.The State Most applications,at least the interesting ones,have some kind of state.

Zero to Om - Act 2

In this second post we will look at actual ClojureScript source code,step by step.The source code can be found on GitHub.Note: I strongly recommend reading the previous post first if you haven't done so already.ClojureScript 101 Before we dive in we'll look at the philosophy of ClojureScript.Since ClojureScript is a Lisp dialect,it strips away most of the syntax you may know from other programming languages.
