Coding Could Become a Requirement for US Students

It’s becoming increasingly important to master a computer, not just the basic stuff, but also the underpinnings: making apps, building a site, or leveraging the cloud in business. Today, software engineering is one of the highest-paid jobs worldwide, and there are plenty of slices to be had from that financial pie still.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel knows this. He is rooting for computer science and coding classes in school. Not optionally, but mandatory. Specifically, he wants programming to be a graduation prerequisite

Cool Summer Internship 2015 Meetup

Today you’ll find us at the Politehnica University of Bucharest, we are here to recruit la crème de la crème of geeks-like-us 😉 We’ve prepared a technical session, a healthy dose of fun, as well as a biking contest for the chance to nab a Raspberry Pi 2 kit – a must have for any aspiring engineer.

Exercises That Will Make You A Better Engineer

It is so easy to distinguish an engineer (or an engineer to be) from a non-engineer. When we interview people for a software engineering position, we want to determine how much of an engineer the candidate is. That’s why we ask a fair amount of questions apparently unrelated to software. Real engineers focus on the problem, break it into pieces, and analyze them. They translate the problem into their “own words”, making analogies with common, easy-to-understand processes. Once their solution is challenged, they are able to optimize and explain it.
