with one comment

i read about Adam’s blog

http://www.adam-bien.com/roller/page/abien?entry=a_perfect_developer_should

A month to the new year, time to make a developer’s new year resolution isn’t it..esp since i’ve just joined a new company.

Let’s see..

  1. I’ll continue polishing up my agile development methodologies.
  2. Share and absorb working experiences with my new team.
  3. Continue reading daily java blogs from javablogs.com, which i subscibed to.
  4. Need to clear the sin of not developing in Linux and Unix.
  5. Try to pick up some designing skills from our designer http://joshmatt.deviantart.com/
  6. Try to learn about the fact knowing all the web frameworks in the world is not very smart.
  7. Pick up more java tips and use more excellent open source libs.
  8. Accept the fact the there will always be someone more ‘perfect’ than you as a developer. Chinese saying that “There will always a mountain higher than another”. And i thought Mt Everest is the highest? -.-
  9. Try to be………nope…not the perfect developer…but a better one in the new year =D

A Sun Certified Programmer in a job interview

with one comment

So you thought being a Sun Certified Programmer would let you breeze through technical interviews with companies looking for java programmers/developers?

Not really the case with me. I’ve had to sit through 1 hr technical exams ranging from written ones to multiple choiced one (90 questions to be exact), even though i had that paper.

Yesterday, i had scheduled 5 interviews, 4 of which required a technical exam, which meant for that day i spent about 3-4hrs doin exam papers..cool eh.

To be honest, give me a practical exam anytime. i rather churn out code on the machine than a written test.

I do hope the certificate has more value in Singapore to be frank. Not too sure how is the certificate doing in other countries.
