Living in Scandinavia

After googling some about moving to Scandinavia, I found interesting articles and blog posts, mainly focusing on expectations versus reality. One of them is absolutely worth highlighting: Vanessa was an MSc student in Tromso and she wrote a short, but more comprehensive review about her experiences, difficulties, and daily life in general. I loved reading her thoughts, try it by yourself here.

We have seen your code

I am a Developer Relations Engineer at […], we are working on improving developer recruitment. We have analyzed your open source contributions on Github and we think that you could be a good fit for the position as Software Engineer at […], in Barcelona.

I have very few codes uploaded to my Github, basically university homeworks and other scripts I had to complete for random purposes. As you all know, if you talk about homeworks, quality is not the first word, which comes up in your mind. I do not understand how this can be enough for any serious company, so I had to say a gentle no for this opportunity. Fun to think about it.

Interactive Python programming

I have signed up for a Rice University course on Coursera and successfully (100% with distinction) completed it some weeks ago. Technically it had two parts, because administrators cut it to 2 separated study block. After many programming experience, I was prepared to be a little bit bored, but the teachers always made my day with their special attitude and good sense of humour so at last it was not boring at all. I can easily suggest this class to anyone who is interested in Python, generally in programming or game developing.


You can see my codes on GitHub, feel free to try the games I coded, especially this one, press the little play button on the upper left corner. (It is best on Chrome.)
