Socializr Seeks "Kick-ass Coders" (San Francisco, CA)
August 07, 2007 @ 07:49:00

Via Terry Chay's Blog:

Company Socializr
Location San Francisco, CA
Title "Kick-Ass Coders"
Summary

Socializr is a new Internet startup founded by Jonathan Abrams, the award-winning serial entrepreneur who created Friendster, and the co-owner of San Francisco nightclub Slide. Socializr is a free web service for sharing event and party information with your friends. It is our mission to be the best site on the web for online event invitations, event promotion, social planning, and event photo sharing. Socializr's offices are located in the South of Market area in San Francisco.

Socializr is a very unique new company offering a dynamic and fun work environment. The company is currently only three people, and we plan to stay lean and mean. We are looking for our first additions to our software development team. The ideal candidates will be able to quickly contribute and create results. We need energetic and fun people who are passionate about building a great consumer web application with large traffic and growth.

If your idea of a fun afternoon is rapidly prototyping a cool new feature, creating an API, integrating with 3 other web services, AJAX-ifying something by hand with tight code instead of bulky libraries, and tuning a SQL query to be 100 times faster, all in one day, this may be the job for you. On the other hand, if your idea of fun is sitting around in meetings or working on code that doesn't scale or products that no one will ever use, Socializr is probably not the right place for you.

Technology skills required:

  • server-side web development in JSP/PHP/Ruby
  • object-oriented programming (C++/Java)
  • DHTML/JavaScript
  • HTML and CSS
  • SQL

We are looking for quality, not quantity, for our small team. We don't care where you went to school or what your SAT scores were. We need someone who is a good fit for our small young team, who can really get things done.

Nick Halstead's Blog:
Do faster typists make better coders?
July 25, 2007 @ 14:51:04

Nick Halstead asks an interesting question on his blog today - "Do faster typists make better coders?"

I have been able to touch type since about age 12 and can manage about 100 words per minute when faced with blocks of text to copy and even faster if I am just writing code. [...] Programming in C meant a lot more typing of parenthesis and a lot more thinking about the structure of the code.

PHP has introduced another set of typing problems with a lot more use of < > and a much higher mixture of variables/functions/parenthesis plus the added bonus of trying to remember a single function from a choice of 3000+.

Several of the comments on the post suggest that it could be helpful to productivity, but shouldn't be focused on too much. After all, what really matters is the programmers skill, right?

International PHP Magazine:
Poll Question What is the Top Mistake That PHP Coders Commit?
February 07, 2007 @ 10:43:00

The International PHP Magazine has posted results from their latest PHP community poll as voted on by visitors to their site. The question for this poll asked developers what they thought, of the choices on the list, was the most common mistake that PHP developers make.

Coming in at number one by an overwhelming lead was "Not escaping entities and SQL input" (a definite problem indeed) with the next highest option, "Not using a Framework" a full twenty percent lower. The next two options were closer (descending) - "Using old PHP versions" and "No or little use of Object Orientation".

There's a new poll this week for your consideration - this time asking which stage, of the five options, should come first in the development cycle of a typical content management system. Head on over and cast your vote today!
