What would I know about persuasion? Well, not that much to be honest. That's why I used this confinement time to improve my social skills through Brandon Hakim's persuasion udemy course. Regardless how much I learned, I do recommend the course because it made me ponder about how people communicates effectively (and it inspired me to draw the pictures below). Here is a quick summary of the course main points. Did you already know them all?
My mother has always been a fervent newspaper reader and she is in the habit of solving the puzzles that come in the last pages. Between those puzzles you can always find a game called sudoku. Two actually; a reasonably difficult one and an evil one. So she was in the middle of filling the first sudoku when I interrupted her. I don't remember what for but I do remember that we talked about sudoku and it was the difference between the two sudoku levels that caught my attention.
Despite I do not work at Sage anymore, some of the tools I discovered there still are a very wise choice when it comes to web development. Since they did not fit in the first post of this series, I'll briefly describe them in this second one. Don't worry. I promise not to write a third part.
Perhaps steroids is too much saying, but you can definitely get more out of web development. In this post I will explain some of the techniques we use at Sage to develop our web platforms, both front end and back end, which I've later on exported to my personal projects too. Keep reading to streamline your own development experience!
At this point in your life there might be a few things you are not familiar with: wasabi, free falling or David Lynch's movies for instance. The gregorian calendar however is not one of them. You learned it in school when you were a child, got used to it and never question it again. Brace yourselves because today the questioning day has arrived. What would a calendar with thirteen months look like?
As a software engineer I am quite used to project management practice. With it's never ending meetings, the excess of control mechanisms and the recurrent mail chains it is certainly not the most popular system between the employees. Far from perfect however, it let to some techniques that are simple and effective when it comes to goals management.
As a content writer you owe a great deal to your readers. No matter whether you are a blogger, a writer, a coach or an author, being able to reach your audience will help you get them more engaged with your activity and provides a good way to start selling your products or services in some point in the future. In addition it will keep you motivated to keep writing. Is there anything more pleasant than knowing that someone cares about your ideas?
You are meeting somebody. Maybe some friends. Maybe a date. Maybe your partner. Maybe a group of people you have recently started to hang out with. The first hours go by and you are having fun. You get to a point where the situation cools down. The connection level with the others decreases. You are still talking and laughing, but it doesn't fill you in the same way past occasions did.

In contrast to my abstract esoteric last post on the meaning of life, today I bring a light and enjoyable post that will make you think in a different manner; you will need to find a way to lay four coins in a row. Doesn't sound complicated, does it? Just let me add a couple of restrictions so that the word challenge on the title is not used in vain and in order for you to feel proud of yourself if you are able to find out a solution.
From time to time I used to wonder about the meaning of life. Or more exactly which is the goal of life. Why are we here for? If you have wondered about it too without getting to any satisfactory conclusion, I'm sorry to tell you that I don't have an specific answer. However, as the time goes by, I am less worried about finding it. Yes, this is going to be a dense post.
Few days ago I received the following email from Google Cloud Platform. Apparently, I was publishing my Google Maps API key to a public Github repository (for the non-technical audience, I was uploading some kind of password to a social network profile), allowing any smartass clever enough to find it to spend my Google Maps quota on his behalf.
Last week we had an Agile Training in my company (Sage, in the Barcelona office). Usually I feel lazy about this kind of trainings because they focus on very abstract topics and also because the theory and practice of project management are as different as chalk and cheese, so I was expecting a boring couple of days sitting all together in a room stating the obvious and agreeing on how useful those methodologies are.
