Compilation of a QnA on the Hacker News Forum

This is a brief analysis on the the question popped up on the Internet’s Intellectual Dome — Hackernews (news.ycombinator.com) on the mastery of software engineering. Here is the discussion for your reference.

The perspectives are all over on a general mastery spectrum, some developers are very much taken on reducing complexity of the codes, some focused comprehension of the technological breadth and depth, some are beyond any sole technical measures — considering a measure of mastery into expertise in all relevant parts and processes just as well as the technical proficiency. Some developers even provided a higher level optics to…

Introduction

Our mobile devices are very much part of our day to day lives. Mobile devices accompany us in the kitchen, in the library, in the vehicle, in the bed or even when we are hiking through a mountain. Any situation we find ourselves in, mobile devices does what its best at — to provide the suitable and tailored services and information through the Apps whenever we need it.

When a mobile app understands user, situation or combination of any environment variables and provide the suitable services, we call them context-aware mobile apps. Location based service apps are an example of…

As the dust is settling down late December afternoon in the suburban Colombo, We are typing away fast on our Macbooks for a final push. AC kicks in to our newly announced Conference room turned War room, we prepare for the final production release for a mobile app. We are very confident at our deployments since there has been months of sprint deliveries to the customer along the way, tried and tested in all ways imaginable. Last run, clicking the play button, taking the happy path just for the fun of it, wow it runs like a river. officially all…

Our house attic floor is creaking. I go there to write sometimes, the loneliness helps me, although the house is silent all the time, I just want to feel like a great writer. Half the time I come down after an hour because I can promise you I’ve seen a small laughing girl on the corner, twice. The floor itself is a lesson on life, it’s very old, walls are torn, smelling like all the rats had a pee ceremony, small blurry window to look outside and never know when the creaking floor would give in and take me with…


We are our mobile -Author

We all have heard the whispers, murmurs, tales and legends about smooth mobile experiences on the corridors of corporate world, the stories of apps which never crash, designs and animations which made users feel really good and fast progressions from one state to another. Well, as legends as it may be, decade long mobile app development has realized the unrealistic, enliven the dead experiences and brought the world new orders of life, fulfillment and energy — it cannot stand by legends, at least no more — it should be rejuvenated, right now. Smooth mobile experiences are not accidents, it’s the…


He was a kind man with a smile. He was not wild or arrogant, what the world holds for perfection — he was one. You see, he had his own fears, He was afraid of something which he could not explain. It paralyzed his soul day and night and he could not simply escape. In a mire of fears, he was lost in the deep end. He had an oddness. When he is afraid he was silent! silent as a river on an winter day morning — it is odd isn’t it? silence in fear? it was odd.

Few years ago I was working on a large enterprise system in their mobile application and I could see they’ve taken mobile for granted. For them mobile meant simply to convert their existing SAAS platform one-to-one to mobile. Mobile experience was awful, the long form filling was an ardent task given all the fields and there were even custom fields to be able to fill in more data, there were unfitting text fields because it should load large documents, high res images which were crashing the application, very complex arc of navigations and I really just don’t know how people…


Pseudo intellectualism is flourishing on all nook and crannies of the Internet. What’s pseudo Intellectualism? I’m going take a shot at my own definition. It’s an Intellectual paradigm where you formulate a theory and you don’t even have a shrimp of expertise on that particular subject— but somehow you managed to eHow it. I’m not going to make a case against it — it’s what keeps the internet alive and I think that it’s a collateral evolution of giving voice to the voiceless. My case is against its wheels— Snippets of knowledge.

Snippets of knowledge can be defined as pseudo…
