As a programmer you know the issue: how was the function called for getting splitting strings into arrays? Some people might use IDEs which autocomplete, but this doesn’t always give you all the answers.
I love this site: DevDocs.io.
This solves the problem completely, but it lives in the browser and might be lost in your tabs.
Just turn it into an app using Fluid on OSX or Chrome on Windows
I really love autocomplete and soundex search functions. I hope this helps you to code faster.
Welcome to my first post about my journey to become a digital nomad. By documenting my adventure, I want to show others how to achieve the same. My first stop will be Japan.
Taking the plunge
The first step, that came after deciding to become a digital nomad, was to quit my job. After much deliberation how to go about it, I walked up to my boss and told him the news. Then a funny thing happened: I actually managed to keep the job in a reduced form.
How? – I sold all involved parties on the idea of me working remotely for a few hours per week. At first I only did that to be polite to my employer – I’m the only full time programmer in a company that does more traditional IT support. Leaving them with open projects and code didn’t seem fair.
The money wasn’t important at all.
After all I’ve been saving up a decent chunk of money, which should allow me to live in Asia for a year.
But more financial stability is also nice.
There have been a few points they were worried about (Time difference, how to communicate etc.), but I could adress each of them in a meeting. (The answer is not a problem and Trello, Google Hangout and VOIP phone numbers)
I’m now on the road to be earning a few extra bucks even tough I’ll be outside the country.
My biggest worry was that the work will turn out to be a lot more than originally planned. This would leave me with no time to learn Japanese and work on my own projects. Creating a document with agreements between both parties helped against the fear.
The final decision to go through with the plan happened in February 2015. I gave the legally required 3 months notice at the end of march. So there was enough time for planning.
Time will tell how it turns out. I’ll keep you posted.
Beautiful documentary movie about a singer. Tragic: The singer kills himself during filming.
The director has difficulties dealing with the loss of his friend. He creates a subplot to fill up the rest of the movie. It’s really nicely done. The singer was very talented, it’s a shame! His name was Masuda Sota (増田壮太)
