What makes a good software engineer? 💻 This is the question which popped in my head when I decided to improvise a video and upload it on Qoorio. No preparation, no makeup, no filters, just sheer stream of consciousness on topic(s) which I find important. Despite the low volume and weird intonation, I found the video relatively bearable to watch, what do you think? 🌿

People are increasingly switching their careers to the IT field, especially programming. 💻 Oftentimes, they cannot answer why they want to learn how to code, except for financial motivations. Because the question is often asked during job interviews, it is important to have a good answer. What can you do about it? In my professional experience, the royal road to the IT field is immersing yourself in a disciplined process of research, support, and planning.💡 This includes taking online courses (e.g. Coursera, Udemy, edX), finding a mentor (e.g. Women Go Tech, idialogue), and getting proper career coaching. An industry-informed coach will help you deal with your fears, collect your thoughts around your values, goals, and motivations, as well as come up with a reasonable career plan. After that, you will be able to provide solid reasons why you want to join the IT field as well as explain your vision and plan for the future. ☀️

Mangirdas Adomaitis, I guess, the question was directed to me. :) I would recommend you looking at increases in popularity of online programming courses, programming bootcamps, tech mentoring programs, maybe tech YouTubers. However, this does not mean that there is no increase in popularity of computer science studies, but these are considerebly more popular among high school graduates.

I see we have a "big elephant" in the room. More and more studies highlight increasing employee engagement issues. While there are many ways on how to address it, both from an employer and employee perspective, I would like to talk about potential career break benefits. Last year I went through this journey myself. It was not an easy decision. Leaving a nice and secure job, a respective company to jump into the unknown; volunteering in rural Uganda with women. A career break can be tough, but one thing’s for sure; you learn a lot and come back a bit different. If you have some similar thoughts such as; What is my purpose? Why do I do what I do? Where am I going? If you answered any of those questions with “yes”, I’d I like to invite you to read my blog post where I share how I experienced my own career break. https://nainyte.com/2019/personal-development/3-reasons-why-you-should-not-be-afraid-to-take-a-career-break/

The button is too red. This little story somehow stuck in my head and shaped a lot the way I try to communicate at work especially when delegating. It happened early in my career when we were creating a website for a telco brand. Brand manager of a telco brand said to the developer: - This button is too red. Developer responded: - Don’t tell me that. Tell me which color it suppose to be instead. Stating what needs to be done instead of what is wrong is harder because you need to make the call, but that’s one way to make sure the problem is fixed.
