Fresh update on "developer" discussed on The Captains America - Third Watch
"You can check prices all in one room. Because not all prices are are made the same dealers typically, historically when they're selling you a coin over grade the coin by one grade, and if they're buying it back from you, even though it's the same dealer you bought it from, they'll drop the grade by one grade so they could pay you less. They're so many tricks to this, Which is why people use me. I don't have the inventory. I don't have to sell you anything. I don't have anything to sell you. So that's a difference. But if you want to go to a dealer Developer relationship. Go in when they're not busy. Ask questions and see if he'll talk to you. If they'll talk to you and and educate you a little bit. You found a good place. If they're just you're another person in line. And they don't have time for you Move on, because there's too many around or you can go to a coin show maybe later this summer, maybe a year from now, because that could be a good place to do it. You mentioned grading several times, and I know that's important. But I don't really get it. Who grades. The coins you mentioned a dealer will under greater over. Great Is that just kind of Ah guessing game the beholder. Or is it worth using a professional service to get your average coins? Green? That's a great question. First of all, people may not know there are professional services who grade coins. If you've got a $10 coin, it's not worth sending it to a professional grading service. They're going to charge you 10 $15. Just degrade the coin. You typically don't even think about grating a coin unless it's a better date, you know, meaning a rare coin. Or one that's a higher grade. Typically, you just don't send in your Washington quarters were Lincoln Pennies. It's let's unless it is that 1919 09 v. D b or 1914 d or 1922 with No D on it. Those were expensive coins. They always have been They always will, Because if if somebody wants to buy a coin, that's going to be those rare coins that are more sought after that's actually for that collector. That's part of my strategy. When I worked with them is to tell him to get the better key dates and the nicest grade that they could afford, because at least there's a history there. And if if there always will be some collectors Those of the coins they're going to want. So you have a waiter at least resell the coin. What assurances are there? If I have a coin, which I have won, that I'll talk to you about when we're not doing the radio show that I wonder if I should get graded or not. What's the process? I mean, what assurances do I have that I'm going to get the same coin back when I send it in to P C gs that I sent out well, You have no assurances. The grating services generally are pretty honest. But I will say that back in the day and this is back in the eighties and nineties, there were dealers O R. There were guys working at the grating services who did switch coins I had that happened to me. It cost my client probably $20,000. It was a Buffalo nickel in 1926 s very rare coin, very high grade. We sent it in three or four times to see if we could get a mid state 65. That would take the value from from a mint state 64 at $5000 to Mint State 65 which in that time would have been 25 or $30,000 we just couldn't get the upgrade. I sent it into kind of a GN off brand service. Not quite PC GSR NGC and I didn't get the same coin back. It had a flaw on the back. That wasn't there originally, and there's no legal recourse because there's no proof. One client did catch a dealer doing that, because he was smart enough to photograph his coin. Um, close up photographs of this. Both sides of the coin sent it in to get it graded. It came back and lower grade, not a higher grade but a lower one. And it wasn't the same coin. Because he compared his photographs to the coin he sent in. So that offers you some protection and there were that dealer was banned from all of the trade associations. For years. Okay. Now, Of course, he's part of the good old boy network. He's back in and he's everybody's friend. The coin dealers. It's a close society. They all love each other. They'll tell stories about Their conquest. If you will, Brian, you know, I don't hang around with that group. I won't. I typically I don't care for that. You know, I can tell you right now there's a certain city in this area that if you go there, there's four or five Quinn shops. If you go in with a large collection, and you don't like the first offer They know you're going to go to one of the other coin shops close by so they will call each other to tell him what they offered so they can offer a little bit lower. So the first guy gets to buy it, and then they split the profit. So there's a lot of horror stories from from coin dealers that said, there's a really nice ones, but you gotta you gotta look and you just got to trust your gut. If your if your gut tells you that after talking to a dealer, you just have that slimy feeling. Walk away, you know, just walk away. Trust your instincts on the grating services are crucial, though they're mostly honest most of the time and pretty much the whole market has agreed to honor their grading standards. And they basically agree that the coin is His accurate and as far as the grating goes. The other part, though, and this is also important. It's grating services will also authenticate the coin. One of the most widely counterfeited coins is the 1916 de Mercury dime. It's It's the rare coin in the Mercury dime collection most expensive hundreds of dollars for even a circulated example and the American Numismatic Association said at one time when they were asked the great coins, seven out of eight were fakes. So they wouldn't grade him. So it's it's good if they graded at least you know it's authentic. So if you're looking for that coin, I would only by that point grated by a professional grading service and on Ly P. C. G s. N g c or the A N A. A. C S. That's the American Numismatic Association coin service. Those three they're authentication is accurate, and the grading is reasonably accurate. There's always room to disagree, because it's not an exact science, but at least they're going to be close. That authentication part. Is extremely valuable and whatever When you want to talk to me about getting it great, it'll be worth it just to know that it's real. If someone thinks that gold or silver is a good thing they want to add some they wantto call you and talk about getting a bunch of eagles or silvery goes gold eagles. You know, they want to add it to their portfolio, right? What kind of time frame should people be thinking? To hold these things. I know you don't you know You can't predict how the market's going to move. But do the commissions on these things make him bad candidates for short term investment? Do we need to be thinking longer term? Or is there some turnaround? Great question and Brian? I insist with my clients that they have to be long term holders. Yeah, You could catch a short term wave and make money. But again, what you said is perfect. They've gotta overcome this spot price of the metal. They've gotta overcome the premium that the dealer's going to pay, which, of course, as we discussed earlier varies greatly. They've gotta overcome my fee. That's a relatively low percentage of what you're what you're investing, but it is a percentage..
No Apple live event this year likely
"All Right! It's almost September in for a tech reporter like myself enrich dimuro. We've been covering these apple events. Every September really excited about seeing new iphones and what we're being told is for the first time this year. No that it's GonNa be virtual just like The developer's conference was recently, and it got me to thinking rich. What are we missing by by having? Basically a TV, show online well. The first thing we're missing is the hands on with the gadgets after their announced, and so, what normally happens is apple goes on stage. They throw a whole bunch of stuff up on the screen. Do a couple of Demos, which is all great, but then the journalists get to go. Go to a separate room and actually have some hands on time with this stuff where you can really see what's going on. You can see the nuances and the software how the engineering is of the hardware and understand what this product is going to look like for the usually two or three or four weeks before it hits store shelves and I think that's that's very valuable especially when it comes to reviewing products and we're definitely going to miss out on that this year. I just don't think it's the same to have to watch the TV show for two hours which which we would do anyway, so the iphone event is the biggest event of the year. HANDS DOWN NO QUESTION I. Would always tell you it is, but nothing happens. They're the IPHONE. Stuff really happens but I gotta I gotTA. I gotTA wonder. Ww See I saw the headlines, but it was not the same now of course, iphone, ww or two different kind of events. This is a developer's conference, so it's not as big consumer thing, but it just didn't hit like an iphone event would when you say. Absolutely, not no, of course not and the sad part is you're right, but they did announce a lot of interesting things that I think we might have seen like especially with the car key stuff like they probably would have had a BMW, or they might have been doing private drives with some journalists to show off that new feature because what happens is there is the headline that gets placed on all the newscasts on that day in all the newspapers and all the websites. Websites, but then there's a trickle of secondary headlines and little inside scoop that these journalists and with W WDC. We really didn't see that because nobody like I, said everyone sort of had the same access, and it was weird and I think that apple did a pretty good job of of commanding some of the news after that, but not the same way with the iphone and the differences. You've got every single reporter that's local to their company and their station and their outlet. Hands on with these devices, and of course that's what's GonNa play because they all have their own followers. They've all got their own viewers and listeners, and that's really what they wanna see. They WANNA see their person with the new device. Well. We're not going to do it this year, but my perdition is September fifteenth. Tuesday for the event I could be wrong. We'll see and analysts. Oh, you've got a date prediction. And and the analysts I've spoken to predict the first week of October four new phones with the top of the line phone, being ready for five G., the Super high speed wireless service that is slowly rolling out.

"Making some changes to its copy and paste function. It's revealing out some popular APS are treating your data with the launch of IOS 14. Your phone will now notify you. If a certain app is looking at text you copied before you wouldn't be able to see that information. So you didn't know that something for me.

Infinity Ward has removed the controversial 'OK' gesture from Modern Warfare - Gamasutra
"Call of duty, modern warfare has removed the okay symbol. This is Wesleyan Pool at euro game. Infinity Ward has quietly removed the okay gesture from call of duty, modern warfare and warzone. The developer has yet explained the decision and publisher. activision has so far failed to comment. After euro game got in touch last week, but it seems likely. The gesture was pulled due to its status as a symbol. In call of duty, modern warfare and war zone, you're able to assign hand gestures to your character for use out on the battlefield, the okay gesture, which was added to the game and was used by some as a trick shot of sorts, the players, the player character, doing the okay sign with their left hand while firing the gun with right called UB social media. Would often carry clips players during the okay sign as they ended a multiplayer match or a game of warzone with the final kill, but the okay sign is no longer in the game pulled. Pulled on the quiet by Infinity Award as part of modern warfare midseason update and replaced by a new gesture called crush. There is no mention of the change in the official passionate, but of course it didn't take players long spot the difference. In September Twenty nineteen, the anti-defamation League out of the okay signed to its list of hate symbols, after it was found to be used by some as sincere expression of white supremacy. I? Its use in this context owes its origins to users on four Chan. Who pretended? There was a hidden meaning behind the okay sign in a bid. Trick the media into a reaction. However, the this ploy ended up with the okay signs us. By the far right and now many believe it's meaning has changed while board has yet to comment. The removal of call of duty is okay. Gesture probably has to do with the ongoing black lives matter movement. The developer has issued strong statements in recent weeks pledging to crack down on racism, call of duty, modern warfare, and even inserting a black lives message into the game or black lives matter message into the game. This isn't the first time video game. Industry has taken action over the case on back in April. Twenty nineteen blizzard reportedly told the fan in the overwatch a league arena. They were not allowed to use the okay sign after it was spotted on a stream and a complaint was made.
How do I shut off my brain so I can recharge?
"So Marivan emails me this great question for taste Cuny Wednesday. He says lately I have been working a lot. Most of which requires a lot of thinking I'm a web developer I love my job and what I do so much that I can't stop thinking about it when I'm eating when I'm working when I'm playing games, even when I'm hanging out with my friends, and family and I just don't want to do that I want my brain. To shut off, so I can recover Sarkin recuperate. Love the show. Love the podcast so much marathon. Thank you so much for that. Great Question Marathon and you are spot on. Many entrepreneurs. Many professionals deal with this issue and I'm GONNA. Give you my strategies. comes to dealing with this number one. It's good that you recognize you have the self awareness to understand that you're doing something that is maybe not the best for you where your mind is racing constantly. Some people think hey, that's great. You should be thinking about your should be carrying about all these things. You should be thinking about what you're doing. Y Shut it off while there's a big reason. There's actually a real biological reason why you should do it. Scientifically proven that your brain works at its best at its subconscious meaning. have. You ever noticed that you might have a problem in life or in business and you slept on it? You get the chance to sleep to rest, or you stepped away from it for a little bit. You went for a walk and it gets solved why you come up with great ideas well, how does it happen? It's because your subconscious brain allows itself to work on it. You have to allow your brain to shut off a little bit you need to. Stop thinking about it in. Your conscious mind. This is why it's actually good for your business to stop thinking about Your Business or whatever you do. Your subconscious mind is going to allow yourself. To solve problems to think of better ideas. There's only so much your conscious mind can do. So there are a few things I want to mention. These are the things that have worked for me number one. It's very hard when you're awake when you're actually in the daytime when you're spending your days when it's the weekend. To kind of just shut off your brain. You're not sleeping, right? You're not unconscious. Right so you want to do something else. What should you do to stop thinking about what you are constantly thinking about? This is where immersion comes in a big believer that in order for you to stop thinking about something or to take a break from something. You have to immerse yourself in something else. That's totally immersive. That takes your full attention that requires you to focus completely on it, and this could be several things for some people. It's like snowboarding or skiing because if you're down, the mountain on skis are on a snowboard unit focused totally on what you're doing. You're avoiding trees avoiding people. You're controlling your balance. All that kind of you're just totally immersed in that. You can't think about anything else. And the feeling that people have had a full day of skiing or snowboarding is a sense of zen sense of relaxation. How could that be they physical activity for six seven hours well, it's because their brain got a break. You gotta break from what normally thinks about. It pushed all your common thoughts to your subconscious, and your conscious mon was consumed with something totally different. This is just one example I know a lot of people. They have the same experience when they're in a very intense card game in a poker game. Even in an game we're requires their total focus and concentration. Another example is sport like if you play in a league, the safest companies they soccer basketball like I played basketball for recreation, and you can't think about anything else when you're in a basketball game you're there's so much going on. You need to focus on what you're doing and you're dribbling shooting. You're passing your thing of strategy. You think of the score. It really allows you to wipe your mind for a couple hours, and it's actually you come back feeling a sense of relief. For some people, it's a gripping novel that puts them in that place. Unique to find your think, marijuana and everybody listening you have to think what can I do? That can immerse myself. Rum totally focused on that task. These

A Developer's Summer, with Underscore David Smith
"Hello everyone this is David sparks joined by my fellow co-hosts Mr. Stephen Hackett I Stephen Hey David. How are you good I feel like this week is kind of putting the capper on our W. WDC coverage. Finished up last week, we were able to talk about quite a bit during the during ww see, and then we talked about our Betas last week this week. We thought we bring in somebody who has a unique and interesting perspective on it. Welcome back to the show David Smith. You it's A. It's a pleasure to be here I mean I was? It's an honor to be on power users so I'm glad to be able to kind of come in gas lend a developer perspective to all the announcements that we just had. Thinking that you'd be the perfect guest for it by pay, we just had him on and then I looked twenty seventeen, so. I don't know what happened there in my head, but The you know David you were telling me before the show started. How many wwe cs have you participated in a believe? This is number twelve for me and my first one is in two thousand and nine, and I've been essentially attended in some form ever ever since so it's been like this regular fixture in my family that as far as like in which. That's longer than my children have. Our old, so like from their perspective, daddy always disappears for a week in June like that's just a part of a part of life that I'm sure they expect happens to every father in the world. They just June is when they go to California, but that's. It was a very unusual year to just actually just stay at home and be here, but sort of not here. kind of station in the basement to a just a after shift myself to California time, and then also just there's so much to do. But generally speaking, it was definitely a different year than all the others that I've had the privilege of experiencing. As, someone who's been W. DC with you? I think we one year we stay together and the relay Commun-. The but I feel like you are somebody that really always. My observation takes advantage of WBZ. You're always hustling to get to meetings and and get the content and I feel like you are in my mind for lack of a better term, a lunch pail developer just show up and you get the work done, and I've always appreciate that about you. So, let's talk, you know. You watched it from home this year I guess That was that. It was different I. Mean on the one hand. It was kind of Nice to be able to like my wife set next to me on the Sofa and we questioned on our TV, and it was. It was kind of Nice to share that with her. Because while we sometimes, we'll do that for things like phone announcements, or you know other apple events throughout the year when I'm not in California You know she's heard me talk about WDC many times and WC announcements are the ones that I like kind of lose my mind and be super excited, and like it's in a way that is unusual that it's not. As to you know with an iphone announcement because a cool new camera that's kind of clear and accessible, but like I'm losing my mind over some minor thing that they just mentioned and she has no idea and it was kind of a fun thing. I think for us to be to share that But it was definitely a bit odd to. Then just like just like. I watched the Hino, and then I go and sit at my at my regular, my regular office and I can download all the Betas, and like get started right away rather than like frantically trying to eat like an awful box lunch in between the keynote in the state of the Union and then like sometime later somehow try and get the. Betas installed over Chino potentially and not so reliable Wi fi, and so like it was definitely a very different Monday for WGC than I'm used to though I kind of liked it like it was kind of Nice I felt like I was super productive like in a very intense way which? Definitely took the weekend to recover from, but it was. It was different, but in a good way I, think is the best summary for how serve the General Rafeal if WGC was for me. The general take wagon talking to developer friends. It's like it was a more more is week easier to get information easier to manage Betas and find out what exactly what's going on. You're not kind of in the thick of it. But it was less useful of direct access to apple engineers. Maybe I'd say from my experience like they had labs this year. Which is alive that typically WGC they have these big sessions where apple engineers are available to attendees who go into, ask your questions, which is the one time of year typically where you're able to interact with an apple engineer, because typically they're locked. Locked away in Cupertino and can talk about anything related to what they're working on, but this one week they get let out in are allowed to do that. And I was very curious to see what they did for. The labs experience this year and worked well like I think I attended five or six lives, and they were just kind of like voice. Conference calls I could share I could share my screen to to the call if I had some code I needed to show them or something. I wanted them to kind of look at and by and large. That process was actually very efficient, and from the kind of likes to the way they structured. It is I mean they were available to anyone who had a pay developer account so I. Don't Know How many people that is in the world, but it is almost certainly. Probably millions if not. Like tens of millions and it was just kind of you signed up. You submitted a question, and they had of reviewed them the day before and assigned to a lab based on as like, do you? Did you actually see Mike? You had a reason a question. That's useful and. Effective to answer, and it was to the asking esque, the right lab, or the right place and feuded, both those things like I was able to get my labs, and got my questions answered, and so that was actually kind of cool. I think only part. I missed was really like. You're talking about the sexting at the the relay commune. Having that kind of that sense of community and being around other people. Like the idea. Of being on site in San Jose was something that I certainly missed this year, and that's a tricky thing to quantify 'cause i. think in most other ways. The Co like the conference was better for being virtual like the session videos were better, and they were more accessible in the sense that they are available immediately to everybody they all have full transcripts that are searchable and so are accessible, just both from an ex. A accessibility perspective of perse people for people for whom listening to video is difficult. They have the transcript immediately available, and they can do. Watch close captioning as Equally accessible to everybody irrespective, if you have the means and the resources and the ability to go to saint, say or not you just if you have an Internet connection, you have exactly the same connection, and then like all the content was super polished

EVO 2020 was cancelled
"Yvo Twenty twenty has been canceled due to various sexual abuse allegations. Yvo Is the biggest annual fighting game tournament in the world, and even with the covid nineteen issues plaguing everyone on the planet. The tournament was soldiering on with plans to make it fully online. Earlier this week, however that all fell apart, and in order to learn more about it, I called on Imran Khan to explain everything Imron. Come into the gaming ride home show again for having me Yvo was canceled. And I just want you to give me the full story. What happened? Why was it canceled? Everything start from the beginning, so ego is the biggest fighting tournament in America Kinda the biggest in the world. There's like some discussion about that at this point, but ego is basically where fighting games have been aspiring to for the last twenty thirty years and listening started in the ninety S. This year, obviously because of covid kit have their usual Mandalay Bay Las Vegas big gathering of fighting game players. So this year they ended up canceling I place. Eve Online Eve online was a different thing where the. Mainly, got games together with like Netco like mortal Kombat eleven and them fighting her indie game that was originally based on my little pony, but basically it was A. It has to evolve brand that could stay around despite not being the big mass gathering tournament that they expect over the last couple of weeks. There's been a bigger. industry-wide movement to out sexual predators in gaming and the gaming industry, and some companies have been hit harder than that are with that bubis off for example, but for the most part it's. It's not a huge thing within the FTC. Because the FTC's always kind of had a reputation of like. Being a bit more open with their sexual harassment and it's always like. It's never been to a level of. A mass critical mass. Joey quilter this past week yesterday in for yesterday in fact was outed by a player. Named He's just does mikey. He goes online and is after the tag is crack. Peron but George Taylor. Who is the head of the current? President Vivo who founded it with Tommy Tony Kanaan. was outed for experiences when he was. Close, to twenty, where they were southern golf land, which is an amusement park in l. a.. That mikey accused him of basically. Paying money to young kids to take their shirts. Germany polls mikey related experience where he said quarter. Paid him twenty dollars to see his genitals inside a restroom and bought him pornography so. It's IT'S A. It's a larger thing that when you look at it from the perspective of not a child who just thinks they're having fun. It's real creepy, but what is conditions came out. Other people's Front, also coming out of the woodwork, saying like more finding old chaser people were talking about doing these things, but not naming names, and now that it's out. The floodgates are broken out. Yvonne immediately went. No, WE'RE GONNA put on administrative leave and check this out, so I mentioned Tom. Tony Kennedy before their more famous like they are obviously co-founders of ego, but there are more famous right now for being developers of Product L. at riot games so. They had to step in for this and go okay. We're looking at this right now. We're investigating and seeing what happens. It did not take very long before nether realm. I believe the first one like say. Are Involved with ego involvement in that sense means we don't WanNA game there. We're not going to earn any money towards prize pools. We're not doing any advertising which is fairly big deal. Arguably moral combat was like the lead game for that tournament. Right for the online tournament. Yes, Merle come at usually has a hard time with like the in person tournament. Fighting community hasn't really take to that game too well, but as an online net code game like for example, smash brothers was canceled for Eve online because the net code. Isn't that good, so this is more time to shine. The actual like really arguably was streetfighter as it is every year. This year. Are Not meeting her, but a little bit. After another canceled COP CANCELED IN ONCE CAPCOM cancels gets away from ego. Then that's that's the ballgame lets. Everything goes away soon after main sex developers of them biting heard who this is their big chance to become A. Kind of a household name and if I didn't need community, they cancelled. Bay Namco canceled and ran into that ego are the canons came out with a message from as ego saying? Hey, we were cutting for joy color. He is not president anymore. In the future, he will have zero involvement with the organization this not he's going to not be on. He's going to be on the board, or he'll be the FCC or he'll still kind of tournaments. They're cutting it off completely. Shortly after that they also that announced, we can't under these circumstances and this change in organization also do evil online in a couple of weeks in August. A month or in August? I. Know that screws over a lot of people, but. It seems like honestly the best. Call right now of. You'RE GONNA have to go through with work. That joy has done or you're going to have to. Try It's from scratch. Cobble together in event that takes at least a year to actually set up and try to get together in a couple of weeks. Yeah, I mean they just they basically. Got Rid of the boss in the most public way, possible right I mean it's it's you can't just like recover from that in a matter of weeks. Really Yeah, it's. It is one of those things of a lot of this is. Probably high time for the funding community insert reckoning with a lot of these things, because it's an issue for a number of years, it was I. I don't know if you recall but a about eight years ago, there was a street fight across capcom across Tekken. Show online, and it ended up ending as a result of some sexual harassment claims, and those a big divide in the community about like whether sexual harassment was a just a part of the culture or not and. Stuff like this doesn't help that argument. No I mean I like you, said earlier I mean like. Feels like the right call to elevate it, and as disappointing as it is for Yvo to be cancelled like it's a big flag for like we need to address. This is if we're going to cancel this event because we need to look at ourselves internally and I think I. Mean Hope the hope is that they come out better on the other side. I mean it seems like this is one of those things where. I. Hesitate to say Covid kind of save them but. If. This were an actual in person things still at Mandalay Bay then they wouldn't be able to cancer that quickly an online tournament. Shuttered a lot more easily. The bigger question now is what happens next year.

Your Present is Soon Your Past
"Your perspective is centered on now. You see everything as something that is either happening in this moment or something that will be categorized as the future. Or categorized as past. But. It's very hard to imagine that the now. Will soon be considered the past, but what's even harder to imagine is that the now was once the future. And that at some point in the past you imagined. The now you imagined whatever was happening today. And likely. You imagined it differently. That's what we're talking about in today's episode. My name is Jonathan Control. You're listening to velvety, and my goal on the show is to help driven developers like you find clarity, perspective and purpose in their careers. So if you think about this for a second, there's a lot of insightful thoughts that can come from. Kind of lingering on this thought the idea that your perspective. You can imagine that you have kind of like a camera and the camera can look at time, and they can see it in these three distinct formats. Into the future into the now we'll talk a little bit more about what that means a second and then into the past. And in both directions in future, and into the past the further away it gets the more fuzzy it seems to be. And at some point. Incomprehensible, there's no picture that you can imagine at some point into the future. That is even close to accurate. And though we have some record of things that have happened in the past, even looking back on those things, there is some level of distortion that is inevitably going to happen because you are distanced from that event, the certainly happens as a result of simply non existing if we look far enough back into the past. We weren't alive. And so everything that we know of events that happened before we were alive. Are regurgitation. They're things that we learned that believed from someone else. Perhaps we have evidence of those things actually occurring, but the end of the day those are not memories are not things that we actually experienced ourselves. Now. Believe it as an exercise to the listener to go and. Do some research on the faulty nece of memory. Suffice it to say that memory is not an incredibly reliable mechanism. We can substitute memories for example things that we've heard from other people. We can imagine that we did them. If we've heard them enough and so our memories, even when we recall them are changing, but nevertheless this system of looking into the future, looking into the past is based on this somewhat faulty recording mechanism. But when we think about nine now. When we think about what's happening now. We'd like to exclude now from any of our critical thinking. So. How does this happen exactly well? When we look into the future, we make plans. We think with intention about what we want to happen. Or even if we don't necessarily think about what we want to happen, we think about what is likely to happen. This is a fundamental human attribute to imagine the future to play out different scenarios, even if only because of our own survivals were doing this even involuntarily. The more distant we go once again. Of course it gets fuzzy, but the further out we go, the more human those thoughts are. For example we can imagine unlike any other animal what the world might be like. We are no longer here. Additionally. We can imagine what the world was like before we existed. But as we look into the future, we imagine. And we create plans. We have intentions. We think critically about cause and effect. Similarly, we can look into the past and we can easily critique our previous actions. This idea that hindsight is twenty twenty. Shows us that we can easily look into the past with an eye of critique. Now. Why is it that we can look into the future with an eye for planning? We can look into the past with an eye. Four critique part of the reason is because we are not experiencing either of those things where imagining them. And, so when we think back, even though we were a part of that, maybe we did experience it. We're still having to imagine it. We're not imagining in the same way that we might construct something that never happened where imagining what it was like when it did happen. When we imagine things, we put ourselves a fairly low stakes environment. This means that we can be critical past cells because. We're sitting here now. Are Opportunities of being better. Are Abundant. And if we think into the future, we can be overly optimistic rather than realistic. We can imagine that even though we've never stuck to diet plan, but this is the year on the first of January. We're going to stick to it. More to the point of Software Engineering, we can imagine that even though we've never been able to estimate the amount of time necessary to complete a given sprint. Suddenly. This sprint will be different. And we can do this because we're separated. We're not experiencing the sprint. That's in front of us where imagining it.
How a Passion for Patients turned this Pharmacist into a Software Developer with Newvick Lee
"Went through all this work in effort to become a pharmacist. And then you left pharmacy like you know got a job after you laugh, too. So what led to that like? Regis defined it as fulfilling, or you just were very excited by software, engineering or Yeah! That's a good question. Yeah spent maybe like. Five six years in an industry including education. I think. The more. That's really monroe for me when when I made that program to all the made finding prescription due dates. Preceding that that's program. Bring down the task for like two hours to less than the second. I. I can't tell you how amazing that was. Like it was so painful just looking through every specialty. Bro And finding that but being able to do that in just in just a short program. I thought that this is. This definitely I wanNA. Do in the future. Yeah. That's really cool and. You wrote that I program. What language technology re using some also thinking? Aren't there a lot of? Regulations like in pharmacies like imagine with their computers like things you can and can't do. So Dea it. They have lots of obstruction on the computer, but this was just a local, so I wrote it in Python and there's a local script. It didn't require any. External. dependencies in I didn't look for any other API's so I I just donald a spreadsheet file from our local pharmacy software and plug that into the firm Python program, and the on saw local, and there's nothing to worry about on security side. Gotcha I'm just laughing. Because I'm like imagining like in other jobs or other professions, you could just bring the work home with you, but it's like you can't just bring home like people like I'm sure. It's like sensitive data. Right that you're working with. Other. Same last name address and everything's all there, so you can't really take home, but. You're able to do it at the at the pharmacy while you're working and all that. Yes, keep it to that story, Yeah! Just for context for myself in the listeners. How long ago is this like when you first started coating when you're still working as a pharmacist? How many years ago at this point or pretty recent? Yes Oh. It's Today is the first. One full year that I've been at this company, and then the MRI her I saw been working. suffered the bubble for two years now. Yeah and I think I started just in these in opponent projects. Three years ago. So took me about a year to get. Re Yeah, yeah, exactly like you said about a year when I was working as pharmacists to feel comfortable to looking for a job, and I've been working as a developer for two years gotTa, and then how long were you pharmacist for? Awesome for two years, oaks about the same now right like seeing amount of work experience from pharmacy to announce a software developer torture. Gotcha okay, so we just got your background with the pharmacy in in all of that and your first job. which now you're not there. You're working at a SYNTECH company, right? Cool, so were you planning to work in Fintech? That sort of just come about because I feel like. Some of your experience would be really helpful in like a med tech kind of industry. Yes so that's that's another good question. So the eighty first company went down I. Actually had to go through a job, looking process and actually interested in metallic. How tap that sort of thing because? I thought okay, I do have A. Background there and that interest there, but the thing was when I started the appointees. I met second how companies they required. Either a lot of suffer experience or a lot of research, clinical experience and I had. Neither. So it was difficult to to get into that soul, I started looking into other companies that I thought I had a shot at and this company turned out to be a great fit for me. Go for Culture Wise, and also lies got it. That's interesting about the clinical experience. Research experience at the health. Tech MIDTECH. Quick Sino, could you? Is there a difference between those two things? I love talking about like the different sectors technology. Is There A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MED? Tech in health tech. Some people police Actually I don't think there really is a difference in my point of view. Yeah, I, mean I. Don't know I. I was asking I was like. Okay. Could be medicine, maybe or to the health could be like me. Look physiotherapy or something. Yeah, yeah, that's a good point. Maybe helps more broad. YEA like. Fitness APP or something, or like the thing I always get commercials for Num num the weight loss. You know talking about Donald State. Have as many on I have Hulu, Hulu live TV, and I swear like. Every break! There's a new commercial which is like I guess it's an APP that uses psychology to help you lose weight, but I feel like that's kind of like I guess it was developed by. Doctors by must be yet like health. More. Health Tech
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Rejecting a Duel Identity
"It's easy to imagine. A dual system. A Dewalt sense of identity, the good side, bad side. The impulsive side of us and the more thoughtful side. This dual sense of identity is not real. It's only on our perception, and it can change the way we think about how we work as engineers. My name is Jonathan Cottrell you're listening to developer. My go on. The show is driven developers like you find clarity, perspective and purpose in their careers. Just like many of the other distortions that our brains can of trick us into believing the idea that we have to cells that we have the good side, the bad side that Dr Jekyll and Dr Hide. Is exactly that it's a trick, a distortion, a simple way of thinking that hides away the complex realities of our ego. So. Why are we talking about ego? Are we talking about dual since of identity on a podcast for engineers will? The truth is when we look at our code. Or? When we look at our previous code, we often tend to blame one or the other. We take credit. When. We believe that we've done something good and we assign that credit to the good ego. We assign it to. Who we intend to be. But then when something goes wrong, we don't take the same level of responsibility now. We may not blame our bad selves, but. We insulate our good selves from stakes. We imagine that the mistake is the fault of the circumstance when it's ourselves, but then when we're looking at other people, we imagine that the mistake is the fault of that person. Taking a wider view, we imagine that we. Can Transcend our own ego. In other words, we can get outside of our own sense of identity. Our own sense of purpose or worth. Our Self. Perception, This is that ego that we're talking about. And when we insulate our own egos from mistakes when we don't blame ourselves. For the bad that we do, but then we turn around, and we don't apply the same rules. The same luxuries to our co workers. We're doing this because we cannot imagine that are co workers have transcended their own egos. This is once again a distortion. This is called the fundamental attribution error. The idea is that we are assigning blame to a person based on who they are. They're fundamental attributes. Rather than doing what we do for ourselves, considering all of the other reasons, all of the other influences that may have caused an error. Going back to this idea that we have a dual, I'd identity. One of those identities is one that we reject. We don't integrate into our thinking. We? Don't believe that we're going to be late. We don't believe. That, we will be lazy. We don't believe that those are a part of who we are. And so we assign them we assign those negative attributes away from ourselves as far away as we can put them. Here's the takeaway for today's episode. Those sites are just as much a part of you. As the good ones. And there's no reason to push away from this. There's no reason to imagine that you can sequester all of your negative attributes. More negative behaviors or bad habits when we assign those to that second identity that second sense of self. that. We kind of naturally create that black, hole. That is not what we intend to be when we do that. We're not taking responsibility for the totality. Of our own actions. And when you do take responsibility for totality of your own actions, you can actually inspect them. Not. All the things that we think are bad. Behaviors are fundamentally bad behaviors, some of them responses to your environment and others. Are Good in the right light. I want to be very clear that there are certainly behaviors that we shouldn't try to portray in a positive light, but. The flip side of that of not being positive about them is not to reject them or act as if they don't exist. Instead we can learn from ourselves if we imagined that our identity is one and the same, no matter if it is positive or negative.
"Ww DC and data. Season is upon us every year. I, I, him in Haw, and I always install all the Betas usually. We don't cover them a lot. Until the we're closer to release, but because of this year that changes are so significant, and people are just so interested in the stuff that Steven and I, both kind of made a point to go a little crazy with Beta installs and we've been using them now for a weekend. I thought it'd be fun to report how these features are working and. And given. This is Betas with some of this stuff could change, but you know. Let's kind of dive in deep on it I will say you've gone a little deeper than I have so the pool right I'm swimming in the pool. You did a cannonball from the top of your house into the deep end. Oh, I did I. Did I I wrote a post in the payers forum saying Hey Steven I've gone a little crazy with the bait. If you've got questions, let us know and a team. Oh, wrote crazy like install watch os Beta. And one of us did I'll give you one guess. Not, me. Like I had actually Rosemary. went in that pool I I said well. Did you watch blow up anything? She says well when I wash my hands at once crash, but otherwise it's been fine, and like you know it and also I feel kind of cavalier this year because I'm home, not traveling. if if my phone gets to messed up I can always unwind. The Beta I'm. Home doesn't matter that much so I. I didn't feel that bad about it, so so let's just Let's list the devices right What have you got? The BETAS installed on, so I've got the Beta on a external SSD that. I'm booting my macbook pro from I, need my fro some later this year, so I'm not willing to put the bait on at directly yet. And running it on my I've had many other. My leverage IPAD PRO is probably going to succumb to it. By the time this episode comes out out of my phone, and the definitely not my Mac pro The this machine is where I make my living, and it will stay on Catalina for some time, but yes. I'm playing with it kind of getting my. Getting in the pool. I spent more time with it on the Max I've got thoughts around that, but. I want to get back. Somebody said a second ago. The interest in Beta cycle is way higher than it normally feels like. And maybe that's because a lot of people aren't home. Life's a little bit slower now. It's because like big Sur in particular is a huge change having we just on your iphone. Who Change like there's a lot of things that are really attractive about these Betas. Wherein some years it's like yeah, it's better, but you know. You can live without it for three more months. Some of the stuff people want to really experience now. Yeah, agreed. And and there is kind of some themes to these Betas as we go through it. In the show today I started with the Beta on my is because I have two IPAD pros because I'm that guy so I started with a on the big IPAD pro and it was running fine, and then it quickly cascaded over a couple of days. And I put it on the laptop, so I had big Sur on the laptop in it on the IPAD. Then suddenly I had it on the second IPAD I had on my own. I also put it on my Mac pro because we have a the way. The recording situation is right now in the sparks headquarters. Has You know there's there's four people living in fifteen hundred square feet and so? My studio isn't really where I'm recording shows where my I MAC PRO is. It's where I do all the edits and all that stuff, but I'm not doing the recording there My old studio has been turned into my daughter's. Daughter's bedroom, but we have an extra in there, and that is the kind of recording machine I'm sitting at it right now, so my fancy Mike and Everything so that one is not upgraded or or running Betas, but but but the all the others should Max. The to Max I own are and then a few days ago I. Put on the watch, too. Because I as I told Rosemary and the automakers. If it breaks, it's her fault. But it's you know so, I, I've been reading on everything. This one thing that you may have heard in the news is these are pretty stable Betas I. think partly because wwe came later. This is more like Beta or Beta three in normal year. That being said do as we say, we do. Don't don't know these. If you need to get your work done Yada Yada Yada Yeah. I, mean they're still developer Betas. At this point, you have to have a developer account. The Public Beta will be in July. That's when they're more widely accessible and usually in the past. At least it's been to developer bills for everyone public Betas so. Developer Beta two or three be public Beta one and there'll be a couple of developer builds and then. A couple more puppets, this sort of tiktok approach, and just because this Betas good doesn't mean the next one will be in fact very often. They get worse before they get better. So yeah, do what we say like. Let us take the pain and you know if you have a spare me, shake my head many if it bursts into flames, that'd be sad, but it's not the end of the world. Then yeah, I think it's fine to play with on that, but definitely out of production machine now something you need for work because you can this situation where the you know, it's always like the one happy really need the one workflow you really depend on. That's the one that's broken for months. That'll get you.

"Software distribution accidentally became that it was intended to be away for developers to prepare packages for inclusion in the next release of a boon to, but because getting your software through the gates in in into the archive, it became a sidestep instead of actually getting yourself in the distribution, people just started using PPA's as a as a means to work around that bit of policy. so yeah, that's a ton of PPI.

"developer" Discussed on Developer Tea
"This is incredibly important to take to heart at a very deep level because the things that you're learning right now, and you may feel like learning something new every day of course I'm open, and of course my mind is open to these new things I'm staying totally flexible in my mind is changing every day because he's expanding. Here's the reality at some point in your career. You're going to face a crossroads, and this is true for every developers true for every non developer really but. At some point in your career, you're going to have a conversation where you have a very strong opinion. That is different from someone else's opinion. And I'll be bold enough to say you're going to have a very strong opinion or even a strong belief. That is actually wrong. According to evidence or according to some fact, the you don't know, or maybe you're denying for some reason you're going to have an opinion that is wrong. And this is incredibly uncomfortable. It is made more comfortable. By, digging your heels in. This is antithetical to what we want to do, but. It's also more comfortable. It's very similar to getting up and working out early in the morning. Of course, it's more comfortable to stay in bed, but The Comfort you experience in that short term, moment is detrimental to the long term health of your body, and when it comes to changing your mind your entire career, if you're unable to learn and adapt and grow with your peers, or even on your own, let's say you encounter some information because you're reading a book. If you're unable to use that information to learn and grow. Then, you will stagnate. And right now at this early part of your career, learning and growing is exciting. It's giving you the positive adrenaline. Rush because today. You're building something that maybe even yesterday you couldn't have built. This is perhaps the most exciting part of your early career. Where you're learning at such a rapid pace. That it feels like you're gaining new superpowers I remember this rush myself when I was first learning how to do the little bit of hd on CSS to get something onscreen, and then taking that and actually. Going further with it. Refining it all this making this creative process so excited about it. But eventually eventually I hit a wall. or at least it felt like it. In reality I hadn't hit a wall I. Just wasn't accelerating as fast as I was before. This is my second piece of advice. Distinctly understand the difference between acceleration and velocity. This is something that we've covered on the show before, and it's the cause of a lot of kind of mid career. feelings of Imposter Syndrome happens to people who are well into their careers. You probably are feeling imposter right now in your youngest you're. You're kind of early days developer probably because you feel like there's so much to learn. And all of those senior developers know so much more than you do an as a senior developer as someone who's been doing this for quite a while now the reality is senior. Developers get that same feeling the amount of knowledge that there is to know right the total body of knowledge. is so incredibly vast the he will probably always feel like your handle on reality or handle on software engineering, your handle on mathematics. Whatever that particular thing is, that causes us. Causes, you a sense of of imposter syndrome. It's going to be there for your whole career. Because the amount of knowledge that's available to you is incredibly vast. He goes far beyond what you could ever learn in a hundred lifetimes, so we need to accept that reality, but here's here's a critical difference. Right between where you are today, and where you'll be at some point in your mid career most likely today you're learning and incredibly fast pace..
The Road to Building Products with Nick Lesec
"You've worked, it might not work in sports. Priority did working gaming. Yeah, actually. So after college I went and got A. An associate's degree actually. Went from a bachelors back to an associates. In game production. So. We learned the basics of everything that goes into making a game. Things like design arts animation programming all that fun stuff. and. From there actually was a QA tester to K-. If you've ever played the game, x Com. You're welcome. I mean I was just the tester but. Actually not the funnest job, but What what is quickly because I know that's a lot of people when they wanted to get into sports or wanted to in the gaming. Gaming particularly. Yes, cigarettes entry level it like the dream job right? Yeah, yeah, and I! I was imagining like Grandma's boy. Everyone just sitting around playing video games all day high fiving each other. But? It's basically you're you're playing. A broken piece of software. Over and over. For eight hours a day. Minimum. There's lot of overtime. And you're you're looking for bugs and logging the bugs. Wow, that sounds thrilling is grueling. Prefer too late to the game comes out. Yeah Yeah. And then. From there action went to t h Q, which is now defunct. Publisher for for Video Games. They were up there with like EA Knack Division things like that. I was doing trade marketing there, which is like retail marketing, so we worked a lot with. basically like physical stores for the marketing that goes on in there like you know these big displays in the store, or you know how to position the game on the shelf and things like that. It was a mix of that as well as trade show coordination, which is really fun I. Really Liked doing the trade show stuff. There's a lot of moving parts. So I got to flex my project. Management skills there That's where I learned a lot of those skills and. You get to travel a lot. which was superfund fun. There would be like six months out of the year where it's just like nonstop travel going around the country even got to go to whistler. Canada, which is like Super Nice. Snowboarding slash ski resort town. That was really really cool and I found out that Canadians are just way way more active than. than all of Americans every day there, let's go bungee jumping and. Let's. Let's go skiing and snowboarding and let's. What is it called? Let's go zip lining unlike. Anita NAP. Yeah, I think Austrailia goes to whistler to work on the mountain. So many Soviet, my friends throughout like this, a high school and college years ended up going to whistle to like train people. Get to work out the lift operators or trade. kind of stuff. So. Yeah, you make a lot. Australians there as well. How did you get into product management specifically? Well. As well with a lot of product managers. That was kind of something that. Is Not something necessarily planned on. Something I kind of fell into and then fell in love with it. So basically I was at. A Marketing Company for beauty products. In their digital department, for like their websites and everything and I was doing what they called I was digital producer. is mostly because they were a TV company. They made a lot of infomercials. That's their bread and butter and where they came from. Then they introduced. They found out about this thing called the Internet and. You know. Put their products on the websites and everything and they were just like you like you coordinate and. Developers and all these people to build stuff. Oh, you're your producer digital producer your digital producers. But it became clear pretty quickly that like for this company to succeed and grow. You need to embrace this whole. Internet thing. It's not going away. So they decided to get really serious and build out this department and and start to treat this department and the rest of the company more like a Internet company like an e commerce company. And so that entailed redefining some roles so one day they were like. Your product manager now and I was like what is i. don't even know what that is. So I looked it up and I did all his research and. Along with my fellow digital producers now recently product managers. And it was really cool like it. Like opened up this whole world I didn't even know was there at the time. And I. Remember One of my my co workers. He's like. This whole product management thing this is this is a really big deal like this is a huge step forward for us like take this very seriously and so I did and I studied the hell out of it. You know trained myself on a lot of best practices and things like that reading books, articles and Talking to people and was actually able to help. Build out the product management discipline. there. Since I seem to be. One of the folks that cared. To do so and. Yeah just. Being able to learn and teach these things and then apply them in real life. was just so cool and it's one of those jobs that like. You can see the results with with numbers and everything and you can. You can gauge success. And I mean that's how I got started. And then from there I went to that that learning company I was telling you about would that have made sure product management organization already in place and. was able to learn a lot more there

"A couple of episodes ago did an episode talking about how to be a terrible manager. Of course this was done satirically we don't want you to go and become a terrible manager if you're a developer there are similar That's what we're talking about in today's episode my name is Jonathan Cottrell and you're listening to develop tea and my goal in the show is driven developers like you find clarity perspire active and purpose in your careers and so we're GonNa talk about what it means to be a bad developer and notice that I'm I'm not saying what it takes to get fired as a developer instead I wanNA focus on the kinds of actions that you might be able to take and still sustain your career still hold job still continue being a developer just not a good one and ultimately this will stifle your career it'll stifle your growth and much of what you want to do you may never get a chance to you so gonNA share a list of things that would really help you become a terrible developer what's the most critical thing you can do to become a terrible developer is to always stay distracted and this distraction can come from anywhere really probably from your email at least because that's the most common distraction that we all have and so can easily let that one slide by but eventually you will get through those emails and there's GonNa be some lull in those emails hitting your inbox the other ways that you might stay distracted as a developer is in endless conversations about your tooling if you you have strong opinions or even if you have weak opinions if you continuously discuss those opinions with other developers and for come to any common ground that will act as a strong distracter for you in your career let's say that you don't yet have opinion and you work with other people who do or maybe you don't have a job as a developer at aw and you want to start out your career totally distracted well encourage you if you WANNA be entirely distracted at the beginning to try to learn as many languages as possible and what this will do is it will constantly keep you in that hello world state you'll never really learn anything majorly different between the languages right learn some semantic differences of a very small subset of the languages but you're never going to learn anything meaningful or practically productive by switching between them all the time so now you have a strong sense of distraction in your day to day work to kind of add a cherry on top make sure that your notifications on your phone are all turned on their all enable in that all of your social accounts are enabled as well so that you are getting those notifications at all hours of the day once you have this major amount of distraction with time that you have left in your day there's a handful of other things you can do to make sure that you become I'm a terrible developer we're GONNA list a couple of these Before we go to our sponsor break I make sure you attend all of the meetings on your account under even the ones that are optional be certain to be present but don't pay attention try to do work during these meetings and try to split your focus between them remember distraction is kind of the critical factor in becoming a terrible developer. and so if you attend the meetings the external perception is that you are engaged but actually because your mind is split between two things you're not really giving either one the attention that it deserves of course as a terrible developer you shouldn't ever tell your team what you're working on you shouldn't share that information with them and you certainly shouldn't know what they are working on so if you can to announce during your daily Standup or work on something entirely different from what you say is priority maybe even something that isn't even a kind of agreed on by the team as important enough to work on on now when you're kind of a rogue developer and of rogue developer is one of the characteristics of a terrible developer we're gonNA take a quick break and then we're gonNA come back and talk about Out some other things that might help you become a terrible developer but first let's talk about today sponsor.

"For sponsoring today's episode of developer t. So you're setting your goals, you're going through your resolutions. Whatever your particular way of you know, kind of doing a reboot for the new year. Most people have some kind of process that they follow. And by the way, if you are if you're listening to this, and you kind of don't believe that, you know, the new year should be such a big deal. There is some support that our brains. Do see the beginning of something as a good time to do this kind of thing. It's not just a, you know a way to sell gym memberships, this is actually there's there's some good evidence to show that we have we really do benefit from this kind of clean slate. Clean slate kind of thinking so encourage you to take advantage of this stuff and don't just, you know, push against it because it's the popular thing to do. But instead to find. Some value in it. Okay. So if you're doing whatever ritual it is that you perform to try to figure out what is it that I want out of this year? What is it that I want out of my life? These there's plenty of topics undeveloped not in the past where we talked about finding those things. But in today's episode of specifically wanna focus on how setting those those goals and figuring out how you measure them can be absolutely critical to your success. Here's the reality. If you measure the wrong thing if you choose the wrong metric. If you are for example, let's say that you decide that your health. Is going to be measured by strictly your weight your body weight? You're going to measure your health strictly by your body weight. And perhaps you're going to measure your physical.

"The. What are you doing today to improve? The easing answer for developers often something along the lines of learning language or reading a book about programming or maybe building something. These are all very good. In fact, there essential parts of the learning process as developer. You might even include listening to this podcast in your list of things that you do to improve your career, and I would be honoured if this pike cast made that list, but if we only focus on our practical skills, if all we do is learn a new technique for building software. If all we're doing is adding to our toolbox, and we don't think about the wide range of tools that we may actually need and instead of adding to our. Toolbox for actually just adding a bunch of the same type of tool we may end up in a scenario where career seems to be somewhat limited. Our ability to move laterally in our career from one company to another or her ability to connect with the people that we work with connect to as the show is so often reminding you are career purpose. The truth is the work that we need to be doing is not just about our practical skills. It's also not just about our relationships are networking these things once again are very important. But there's another piece to this puzzle. Then perhaps it's the primary piece at least it's the kind of the foundational piece, and that is our working on ourselves are working on the. The way that we see the world the way that we perceive our jobs. You're listening to develop a t my name is Jonathan Cottrell. And in today's episode. I'm announcing something we've already kind of soft announced before the new year began. But today, we're officially announcing that the tea break challenge is live. It's.

"That's developer t two zero one eight that will give you that twenty dollars worth of credit. There's so many other things that linen provides as part of their service. We're not going to get through them all in today's episode, but owed is a continued sponsor of. Developer t thank you again to Leonard for sponsoring today's episode. So we're talking about kind of the etymology of a software project. All of these things. We probably have some bad and some very good memories that are being vote by talking about his various types of problems that we face in software. Some of these things can make us feel proud. Some of them can make us feel a sense of shame and perhaps the most important feeling for us to pay attention to his fear. Fear is important because fear is often an indicator. The feeling of fear is an indicator of some level of uncertainty. The unknown. This is often causes fear as software developers begin to work on a new project, the fear of the unknown. Specifically the fear of the unknown as it relates to changes things that I might interact with things that I might do. If you give me a task, however you are managing those tasks doesn't really matter. But if you have a task and I take this, this on as a software developer go into this project that has all of these eighty sink receives that we've already discussed in the earlier part of this episode. Then it's very possible if not likely that I'm going to have some level of intrepid nation. I'm going to be uncertain about the changes that I'm getting ready to make. And so understanding that software comes about as the result of human processes that should prompt us to create systems that support that human side of sulphur development. So what is what was it mean to support this? Well, first of all, we have to recognize what of those human traits can cause software to be dangerous. Right? And again, we said on previous episodes of the show, I'm gonna say it again on this episode if you follow the fear. In other words, if you pay attention to what developers are afraid of, you'll often uncover places where your software needs to be refracted needs to be changed or rethought in some way that software is causing a level of uncertainty as some uncertainty is is absolutely attributable to a lack of experience for a given developer in this needs to be kind of brought out as well, but very often, uncertainty and fear come as a result of a developer feeling like. There's something that they should know, but they don't. And perhaps that thing that they should know is not necessarily rudimentary programming knowledge, but instead it some kind of knowledge that's embedded in this project, something in that life cycle that atom apology, something human, some decision that was made along the way or some colloquial language that was adopted along the way. Some vocabulary that is not obvious. Maybe some level of indirection is confusing or maybe even unnecessary. And so as new developers come onto projects, this is a critical point to understand the fear, the uncertainty that those developers have because this is going to point you in the direction of places where your code has the artifacts and perhaps even an damaging way the artifacts..

"But as a beginner starts on this path, they don't have the scheme. A Bill tough. So younger developers, you're listening to the show. I encourage you to not be afraid of choosing different solutions. Of course, it's important to recognize that there is a lot of value to be learned from people who have experience, but remember that your benefit as young developer is that you are more apt to question. Why? Why are we choosing solution x over solution? Be. And when you ask these questions, you're slowing down your thought process in your creating your schema more intentionally rather than relying on your existing schema, your forging new schema. So if you are an experienced developer in order to kind of combat this issue where you may have blind spots, it's important that you do two things. One, listen to the questions and the concerns of learning developers. If you're an expert, then having the questions reposed to you that you haven't asked maybe in evening years, these these same questions allowing those questions to ask and considering the answer slowly intentionally slowing down and I would even recommend doing something like telling yourself out loud that I'm going to think about this thoroughly. I'm going to think slowly about this idea. This will allow you to challenge. Your schema and it's important that you keep this learning mindset not just because you know, maybe you're scheme is wrong. That's not really the point. The point is that blind spots can cause problems as you collaborate with other developers, especially if you're in a company where you have new people on boarding all the time. One of the reasons that new people often feel imposter syndrome as they come into a company regardless of their experience level is because other people in the company are fairly experienced with their way of doing things. And in fact, usually companies have a kind of way that the company does things. And so as you come in as a new developer for that company, it's easy to feel like an impostor. If you don't know why things are done the way that they are so experienced developers, if you are mentoring young developers, especially if those developers are working in a collaborative role with you and courage you to slow down. And allow those those developers ask why things are the way that they are and young developers to take advantage of this of this brand new field of new scheme that you're creating in.

"Again, it is your lotion for sponsoring today's episode of developer t. So we're talking about beliefs today and I want to. To kind of explain why believes her some important when we have beliefs that kind of act as these immovable guardrails in our decision making process. And when we have beliefs that we're building our habits from those habits, kind of add, even more structure to those beliefs you can think of that as kind of like pouring cement over your guard rails on really creating this immovable object. That's very difficult to dig up very difficult to move to change in any particular way. And as we get older and as our brains continue experience more things and we continue to travel down those roads with those particular guardrails, they become even more ingrained in. There's a good reason for this to happen. Of course, over the years, we use confirmation bias to help us even further establish the sense of safety that we get from the. Guardrails, no one wants to feel unsafe. This is true, not only for kind of our pride or mental pride of doing something that isn't smart, but it's also true at a fundamental human instinct level. We don't wanna feel unsafe. And so we justify a lot of our believes with reasoning. The problem is sometimes that reasoning is broken. Sometimes it's flawed or sometimes it's really kind of copying pasted from someone else's reasoning. We heard a story we saw we had a particular experience maybe and we base a given belief off of those experiences or from those stories. This is the idea of anecdotal evidence and very few times do we look at, for example, the frameworks that we choose to use or the languages that we choose to use or the particular way of running an organization very. Few times if we're the ones that are making the decision, it's very difficult to look at those what they true critical eye with the intent of checking those beliefs. Did I choose the right language instead we try to answer a different question internally. We try to answer the question. What are the good things about my choice? And even further, how can I make myself feel good about my choice? How can I feel safe? What are the reasons that I can feel safe about my choice? And as we said before, at the beginning of the episode, what we really need to be doing with our beliefs is giving ourselves of rain and understanding of how much we actually believe whatever that belief is. So I have a very simple exercise for you..

"The. As a developer, you've probably encountered the discussion or the offer to pursue a remote engagement, some kind of work where you're not necessarily bound to a specific location. Most developers would otherwise be in an office, but then they choose to work remotely. And traditionally this is working from home, but more and more people are working in a nomadic state or working as they travel for example. And this isn't necessarily all that surprising. Most of the materials that we need to do our work, it's pretty much a laptop and a good internet connection. So it makes sense to do a little bit of studying about remote work, seeing as many of us in many of the people listening to the show, especially will end up with some kind of remote engagement as your primary means of income. My name's Jonathan Cottrell and you're listening to developer team. I go on the show as to help driven developers just like you connects to your career purpose and do better work. See you can have a positive influence on the people around you. The people who come in contact with you. It's not just the people who are using the stuff that. Make, it's the people that you surround yourself with. And one of the ways that you may have a positive impact is based on your location, the literal community that you are part of. So it's very possible that remote work is going to improve your community relationships, but that's not what we're focusing on today. Today's episode were focusing more on the problems or more specifically, the one major problem that many managers are concerned about, and that is, how do we communicate with remote workers? How can we -ffective -ly create the same type of productive environment when people are not around each other? When there's no water cooler for example, no, passing each other in the hall and sharing personal stories about what happened over the weekend. That doesn't really happen when you're. Workforce is remote. So we want to talk about some of this communication dynamics and maybe something a little bit more surprising about how to mirror a more natural communication pattern. We're gonna talk about that a little bit more and just a moment. I wanna share some news with you all. The first piece of news is that spec has just launched a jobs board for designers and developers. Go and check it out. It's at spec out of him slash jobs and quick shot up to Brian Levin for pulling that together. It's a super awesome job board. Of course. If you are winning to hire designers and developers, the spec community is full of talented into people go in post your job. You can post at the same place back him slash jobs of second piece of news is that developer t recently rolled over ten million listens. We have five hundred sixty six episodes. Now we're actually nearing Tim one million, but ten mil. Billion listens since we started this show and I can't tell you just how grateful I am for you all the listeners, the audience of the show I want to connect more and more with you and the future is exciting, very thankful that you have stuck around this along, especially for those of you who who have subscribed over the years and you've listened diligently. No, there's three episodes of week that's a ton of content. And of course, we've had people listening some people even since the very beginning, some very grateful for that amount. Just that sheer number of people who have participated in making developer t happen. Thank you so much last piece of news. I wanted to remind you all about breaker upstream. This is a brand new partnership that developer team and breaker the pike, cast listening app breaker. You can find it in the app store..

"The. For the first few minutes of today's episode, I want to talk about kind of where we been and layout a little bit of a vision for wherever headed the show isn't going to change very much, but I do want to identify the reality that developer t started as a developer focused pike cast. This is pike cast that we want to to give developers the most value. Now with that often looks like impact casting is really specific technical discussions in. We've had a few of those on this show, but more more I'm noticing that developers who listen to this show, they value the discussions that we have. There are a little bit more abstracted away from technology, taking those concepts and then turning around and applying them to your career as a developer, as well as your practice as developer, not. Only your coding practice, but also how you handle yourself in social interactions and professional interactions. So I wanna make sure that everybody understands as you're listening to the show developer TV is intentionally crafted for developers, but the topics that we talk about on the show in many of the principles that we uncover on the show, they extend well beyond the development practice. This show will continue to be focused on software developers into the future. We're going to continue talking about these abstract concepts. Sometimes we will have technical discussions from an abstract perspective, but you can consider this moment in developer tease history, kind of the open door moment. We're not restricting the people who listen to the show to only software developers because as turns out software development is becoming a more and more open field. The value of creating software is going far. Beyond, you know, web development or even application development and it's extending into every other sphere. So I want to make sure that the people who listen to the show that if you're not if your job title doesn't include software developer and even if you aren't necessarily targeting job where that is your title that you know that you're welcome here because the show is more about and principles than it is about any specific technology. And the truth is we've had all kinds of people listen to the show and reach out and say, thank you because the show has provided some kind of value well beyond the software development practice. So I appreciate you for listening to the show, but I also want to extend that welcome to anyone who's listening to this for the first time or maybe you're developer and you know somebody who can appreciate this show even though they aren't necessarily developer themselves, encourage you to share. To share, whatever you think is valuable with those people. Okay. Let's jump into the content for today's episode. If you haven't already guessed you are listening to developer, not my name's Jonathan Cottrell. And the goal of this show is to help driven developers connect to their career purpose and do better work so they can have a positive influence on the people around them. And you've already heard some of the ways that we do this. We talk about abstract ideas, talk about a lot about how the brain works about how we can work effectively as humans. So in today's episode, we're going to talk about a very important subject. Of course, it's to do with the way we think not just the way we think in general, not the way we process information, but the way we view ourselves and as a result, the way the issue others..

"The. Part of the point of developer t is to help you the driven developer connect to your career purpose in order to do that. Sometimes it takes a little bit of investigation on the show. We're going to talk a little bit more about purpose in this episode. Specifically, we're going to talk about how you can find purpose in a smaller way. My name is Jonathan Cottrell and you're listening to developer prety, and we've already talked about point of this show in the other point of the show is so you can do better work because it's very difficult to do truly good work. If you're not connected to why you're doing that good work, the most lasting motivation that you will find is caring about the work itself. Of course, there are other kinds of motivation, for example, a paycheck or working with people that you enjoy being around. But if you can't find motivation in the work that you do, then you'll probably find limit to those other motivating factors. But in today's episode, I wanna talk a little bit about the struggle of finding purpose in your work and maybe help you out a little bit at least four today. That really is what today's episode is about the work you're doing today. So it can be difficult to find purpose. There's a bunch of techniques exercises you can do to try to uncover your purpose, but people can go their entire lives and never really find it. It seems like an elusive treasure that you have to dig up or maybe something that doesn't exist at all. Maybe something that you're searching for that you'll never find because it's not there to find. I think the problem with all of these ways of describing purpose is the idea that somehow this purpose is a token something that you can seek, or you know something that you have to carve out of the matter that is your time. And unfortunately, this is very hard to do for most people finding that token, finding that buried treasure that hidden sudden epiphany. This is something that doesn't really happen to the degree. That they feel like it substantial there is not a kind of light shining through the clouds. It piffling moment for most people. Now that's not to say that you won't have moments where you have more clarity than others. For example, figuring out that you like working with interesting problems. The sounds very generic, but sometimes people don't care about how interesting problem as so even those kinds of insights to your own preferences. Your own desires can be helpful. Other fifties that you may have is the people that you want to work for. For example, the users, the clients, the kinds of people that you care about working for regardless of what you're doing for those people. All of these things can be composed into some semblance of a purpose, and it's easy to think that are the people have found there's in the same way that it's easy to think that other people find that one perfect path. In any other area of life that they choose the perfect school or the perfect significant other everything fell into place, just right. The reality is much more messy. So what can we do when we have to deal with this irreducible uncertainty, this kind of big block in the road that we can't walk through. And sometimes it seems like we can't raw walk around it. We might have to choose different road altogether..

"I hear and i forget i see and i remember i do and i understand although the origin of this quote is somewhat unknown the it's a chinese proverb but most of the sources citing that come from the 1960s the underlying concept of this quote is still very strong that's where we're going to be talking about in today's episode by name is jonathan cottrell you're listening to developer t michael on this show is to help you become a better developer you may be listening to this new not a software developer guy you don't right code i don't do maybe anything with computers although fewer and fewer people that category as the years where on in as technology continues to imbue our lives and even if you're a software developer you may not see yourself as a software developer the title of developer is very much so incomplete for most people who work in this job tons of people own businesses and also develop software tens of people who listen to the show are also designers who work with software perhaps you are indeed or writing code in your daytoday work enter code continues to become more and more important so as people start listening to this podcast in those varying categories i went to make sure that we're avoiding mislabelling developers i want to make sure that we're avoiding perpetuating a sense of fear of perpetuating a sense of impostor syndrome but talks about impostors syndrome in the past but part of the way that we do this is by not trying to get into extremely technical details in short podcast and that's one of the reasons why we focus on larger more applicable topics that span of basically your entire life you can listen to this episode and five years from now and hopefully it will still be applicable to what you do so we aren't afraid to talk about specific technology we are avoiding those conversations but a lot of the time the better value the you can get out of this podcast is going to be when we talk about things like what we're talking about today today's episode is focused on learning.
