I hope people do not get a couple of different subjects here confused. Digital Nomad, remote working, influence marketing, and expatriation are all very different topics each discussed from a very small POV of a digital nomad.
Lets keep in mind “digital nomad” is a lifestyle that does use advantages brought about from those…
I just want to add as someone who has interviewed many developers for hire, there is no bigger red flag for me than when someone starts promoting a particular stack. Its also why I don’t believe in asking a bunch of technical questions or programming puzzles to “get them”.
I can speak up for rushing into coding in most of my projects. Particularly ones where I must design and code, seems like its a waste of time to lay out in Marvel or another prototyping app but it always results in that moment you mention of “umm… ok now what do I do”.
As they say, weeks of coding saves you hours of planning.
I agree that both sides are to blame. Weak management feeds bad practices and poor characters. But we are all professionals and should act as such. Even if Rick was nice and was trying his best, everyone should have seen the risks involved in having one person in charge of so much. What if he/she was hit by a bus? Whole company goes under? This was…
I agree all companies should fire anyone who refuses to work together no matter how big their role. But I disagree you had a Rick. Any engineer worth their salt knows a big part of their job is making code comprehensible for others. Writing stuff only you can understand is a big red flag. There are plenty of developers who fall in love with creating their own complexity. But those aren’t Ricks, they’re d*cks.
Wonderful post. Absolutely fantastic information.
I’ve recently realized I too was starting with a product and THEN marketing which was a mistake. I actually wrote about my mistake as well https://www.medium.com/@rockstarcode/reach-your-first-and-biggest-obstacle-c5836cac4c22
Thank you for your response.
I agree, sales at enterprise levels require a larger image. Whether the perceived value or a simple bias of trust, large organizations seemingly only trust other large organizations with big solutions.
Indeed! I worked at a .com that sold to health insurance organizations, and as a developer I use to get issues such “the solution is too simple” and “we need to make it more complex” which would blow my mind. I may not agree with the underlying logic but for enterprise sales bigger is definitely better (sales wise).
