I wrote up a free resource for technical interviews specifically targeting early-career web developers. No ads, no promotions, just free content.

Prepare for your next tech interview by learning to think like an interviewer.

This is a daily email series; everyone starts at day 1 and works through the content and are auto-unsubscribed at the end. Each day you'll get one or more interview questions typically asked of early-career web developers, but analyzing the question from the perspective of the interviewer -- why am I even asking you this question? do I want your answer to be an opinion, or an anecdote about your experience with this? etc.

I'm currently at 5 weeks of content and aim to wrap up the series around 7 weeks. You can reply to any message to reach my inbox with follow-up questions or additional topics you'd like me to cover.

Hey tech friends and followers. If you've been contacted about the class-action lawsuit against TalentBin / Monster regarding the hidden/secret profile that they were selling, be aware that Dice is doing the EXACT same thing as TalentBin, yet there's no class-action lawsuit against Dice that I'm aware of (yet). I found proof of their practices, blogged about it, Dice reps read my blog and didn't refute any of my findings.

TL;DR: Dice.com is scraping online resources to build inaccurate developer profiles about you, and making it available to paid customers on their platform, without your knowledge or consent.

I wrote up some thoughts on recent interactions with Dice.com and some pesky recruiters who ended up being very helpful to let me peek at what paying customers on the Dice platform are seeing, and spotting several inaccuracies. Somehow the algorithms at Dice think I'm a qualified J2EE/C#/.NET programmer, among other things. I have no control over the content, no means to correct it, and had to request being blacklisted. Dice suggested I shut down all of my online profiles.

Hey everyone, I used Symfony 1.1 and 1.4 way back in the day and looking at Symfony 3 for a new project.

I'm curious if anyone can point me at any examples of a service bundle that saves something in a database and also pushes it to a third-party API... like a payment processor that saves state in your db and then sends data to a payment api, or an image processor that saves some details about a file upload in the database and then pushes the image to a CDN API, or something of that nature.

I've spent the afternoon looking through https://github.com/sitepoint/awesome-symfony and can't quite find any examples of this.

Thanks!

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I've lurked and couldn't find any posts.

Since Google stopped working on CDE, I'd like to make it available to some students who have Chromebooks and learning simple web development (html/css/js). I'm curious if anyone has written up instructions for cloning Google's repo, building their own app, and loading it onto a Chromebook if Chrome's developer mode were enabled. I was able to side-load the ide/web/manifest.json through the Extensions page, but seems like much of the functionality (like cloning a git repo) doesn't work.

Thanks for any pointers.
