After two phone interviews Google asked me to visit London and have a whole day of chatting about technology and solving intricate coding puzzles. Just to see how good I am on a scale of 1 to Google. An animation of the quicksort algorithm sorting an array of randomized values. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) They aldo sent me an email with advice. It can be summed up as “You should know everything. If it’s to do with computers, you should know it. Her...

I hated Skyfall. Who wrote that sh**t?? I think its the worst Bond movie ever and the worst for Daniel Craig whose best so far for me was Casino Royale.

While we decided a long time ago that we wouldn’t be open-sourcing the core Stack Exchange Q&A engine, we do try very hard to open source as many useful parts of our code as we can. As Stack Overflow is one of the most prominent Microsoft .NET-created sites for software developers in the world, we feel that it’s part of our mission to help lead fellow .NET developers — and the most effective way to do that is by contributing some of the code that...

Here's the 9 myths this article "debunks":

Myth 1: Left-Brained People Are Organized, Right-Brained People Are Creative
Myth 2: Your Memory Is An Exact Account of What You See and Experience
Myth 3: You Only Use 10% of Your Brain
Myth 4: Alcohol Kills Brain Cells
Myth 5: The Internet Is Making Us Dumber
Myth 6: Listening to Classical Music Turns Babies into Geniuses
Myth 7: Brain Games Make You Smarter
Myth 8: Your IQ Is Fixed and Stays the Same Throughout Your Life
Myth 9: Your Brain Works Better Under Pressure

I thought that some of these were significant enough that it may change some people's behavior, or the way they talk about things. Worth reading. :-) Also, since the descriptions are brief, I'm not convinced the germ of some of these ideas have really been "debunked" :-)
Brain games will make you smarter! The internet is making you dumber! Alcohol is killing your brain cells! The brain is a mystery we've been trying to solve for ages, and the desire to unlock its secr...

Introduction
My name is Nick Masao. I’m a computer programmer, filmmaker and writer. I created and maintain Reportbase, the online school management software for Tanzanian schools. I started a software development company called Arusha Software in 2008. I’ve been writing software professionally since 2003 and filmmaking as a passion since 1999 and professionally since 2013.

I’ve made several documentaries, an action feature film and an action short film. I write, produce, shoot and edit my own stuff, but I can work with others if the content is compelling.

More about my films here.

I am a Microsoft MCP. I hold several certifications including Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) and Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) .NET Framework. I’m a full stack software developer, which means I work efficiently at all layers of the application development life-cycle including the server, network and hosting environments, database layer and data modelling, business logic, API layer, Action layer, MVC, User Interface and User Experience and Customer and Business needs analysis.

I have an old software blog here which you can visit to see where I came from. I also have a YouTube channel. Please visit that to see some of my film work. You can subscribe to my blog’s RSS feed or follow me on Google+, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

I’m always looking for exciting new challenges and projects, so if you need an application built, help with architecture or just .NET development in general, please get in touch with me.
