TV Show Reviews - '12 Monkeys'

I like to watch TV shows and from time to time I'm writing short reviews about it. You can check out what I'm watching over at trakt.tv and follow me on Twitter.

About '12 Monkeys'

The show is loosely based on the movie '12 Monkeys' with Bruce Willis, which was release back in 1995. It's main character 'Cole' of the year 2043 is travelling back in time to prevent an outbreak, which decimates a huge part of the population. With the help of the scientist 'Dr. Cassandra Railly' of the year 2015 and information collected in his timeline, they are trying to locate the source of the outbreak.

Thoughts on Job Hunting

by David Linsin

I recently changed jobs after a long and sometimes tedious journey to find the right place for me to work at. Applying for over a dozen jobs, sometimes via recruiters, sometimes online and a couple of times via personal recommendation, I wanted to write down my experiences and give some advice in hopes they'd be useful to others looking for a job.

It's important to note, that I was looking for a job as a software developer to a non-entry position in Germany. I've got a couple of years of experience in various fields and it was important to me, that the position the company offers reflects that. My experiences and advices might not apply to other jobs in the software industry or other countries.

Teamwork

The last week was quite eventful and as most of the time when a lot of things are happening, I learned quit a bit.

I was part of a grandcentrix team participating in the Interactive Cologne Hackathon. We pitched the idea to visualize local train stations and their trains departing on a map. Since grandcentrix is a mobile development company, we wanted to hack on an iOS and Android App.

The team started out with three developers, but fortunately got re-enforced by two designers.

The technical challenge of loading a bunch of information from a server and dropping pins on a map is rather small. The project wasn't really that interesting from a developer's point of view. However, the two designers came up with a very cool idea of how to visualize the information - the technical challenge was back on.

I tried a lot of stuff when it comes to productivity and I'm pretty sure productivity means different things to different people. For me it boils down to three different aspects:

  1. easy and fast access to the right information
  2. easy and fast navigation
  3. easy and reliable reminders

As you can see, for me the theme is easy access to the right information at any time. I'll share tools or tips over the next couple of weeks which help me accomplish this goal. The first two key ingredients of my setup are Gmail and Alfred App. Furthermore, I explained how GitHub plays a role in my daily productivity.
