Developers dont want ping pong tables, fire pits and chocolate fountains

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 09:40:27 +0000

An article, describing an interview with Joel Spolsky (CEO of StackOverflow) at the Geekwire Summit, states that developers aren’t looking for ping pong tables, lounges, fire pits and chocolate fountains as it decreases the overall productivity. In the article Joel describes the needs for developers to have a closed office, where they can tune out and concentrate, go to a… Read more →

String.Interpolation – C# 6

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 12:25:03 +0000

One of the new, and probably very unused capabilities of C# 6, is String Interpolation. Ok, that’s not really a new concept. We’ve seen it with String.Format() and the ideologically wrong String.Concat() methods. Hell, we’ve probably all (at some point in our lives) done [string + ” ” + string] and made it work. Of course, not going into why that’s… Read more →

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 10:28:15 +0000

Now as I mentioned in my blog post from last week, a laptop is more than just a fancy accessory for me – it’s a tool and I spend a lot of time weighing up what I’m going to be using it for. That’s why the 3rd survey (in a series of 4) for the Retro ThinkPad is one of… Read more →
