It is non-standard base64: it uses '_' and '-' instead of '+' and '/'. You can read in Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base64
Perseids 7 hours ago 1 reply      
Why do you assume it is not base64 encoded? I have always come to believe it is some encrypted data. If I was Google I would probably give every server a UUID and a symmetric key. If an error occurs encrypt (and authenticate) the stacktrace and other debug information with that symmetric key and prepend the UUID. As a developer you can then find out the server that produced the error message, log in via SSH and decrypt the debug information.

But it would be interesting to collect a lot of this error messages to check if they appear to be completely random.

It is surely an encrypted stack trace, encoded in base64, which is probably being spit out by the load balancer proxy. I would not be surprised if Youtube developers used their own Chrome extension for making that binary meat readable.

I have once set out to write a module for Nodejs for the same purpose, but never finished it. Can't really see a downside in this way of reporting errors.

What's the Easiest Programming Language I Can Learn

For discussing whether Python and Ruby are too big compared to Javascript or Haskell, I'd like to give you the following UX anaology.

You're a cashier at a bank and want to give the best experience for your customer, who just withdrew $248.67 from her account. The Python way would be to give this person two hundred dollar bills, two twenty dollar bills, a five dollar bill, a two dollar bill, a one dollar bill, a fifty cent piece, a dime, a nickle, and two pennies. Some one on the messge board will later tell you that the fifty cent piece has been deprecated and that you should have use two quarters. Also, the two dollar bill has performance issues and you should have just used two ones. It's pretty big and maybe not the best for your customer.

The Javascript way is much smaller and simpler. You'd just give the user 24,867 pennies. There's no variation in bills to memorize - just counting. You do get tired of counting after a while and your bank manager tells you a little secret. In the bank, there's premade bags in sizes of a ten thousand pennies, two thousand pennies, one thousand pennies, five hundred pennies, two hundred pennies, twenty-five pennies, ten pennies, and five pennies. So, you give the customer two ten thousand penny bags, two two-thousand penny bags, a five hundred penny bag, a two hundred penny bag, a one dollar bill, fourteen twenty five penny bags, a ten penny bag, a five penny bag, and two loose pennies.

You get tired of hauling all the pennies, so you decided to do things smaller and simpler. You do things the haskell way. You give the customer a two hundred forty-three dollar bill, a negative nine dollar bill, a three dollar bill, and a thirty-three cent piece. You require the customer to sign an oath stating that she won't just throw out the negative nine dollar, but will ensure that it is safely paired with a positive nine-dollar bill when it is returned to the bank for no value. For some reason, the thirty-three cent pieces are all in a drawer labelled "Monoid", and you're told it's because they're closed with the Yen under addition, as long as Japan keeps printing the zero Yen coin.

This isn't meant to be an attack on any of these languages. Any of them would be an excellent choice. The javascript way has a smaller number of denominations to memorize, but you wind up needing to learn a long list of premade baggies, which can make everything suddenly seem big. The Haskell way has a small, optimal set of denominations, but learning to figure out to put them together can make everything seem huge. The Python/Ruby way has more denominations than either, but some people think that they're easier to add up than the Haskell ones and more convenient to carry than the Javascript ones. So knowing which language is the smallest and easiest all depends on what you call small and easy.

I would actually consider only Ruby and Python.

Javascript in my opinion will take longer to get up and running because the language syntax and frameworks are not as straightforward to grasp for a complete beginner.

Ruby and Python have awesome books for beginners and intermediate. I recommend Think Python by Allen Downey and Learn to Program by Chris Pine for beginners. Both are interesting, relatively small, and give you a taste of the language, and both are free.

Both Ruby and Python have frameworks (Rails and Django) that are used by many, many people making it easy to ask around if you have any questions.

blakerson 3 hours ago 0 replies      
From one non-programmer to another, I highly recommend Python + Django + a CSS framework to get up and running.

Python is a great language to get started on because the code is relatively simple to write and read (for very geeky reasons), and the MIT OpenCourseWare intro to CS for non-majors class is a great way to pick up as much "core" programming ability as you need. That class is taught in Python. Underrated perk: errors are easier to diagnose relative to JavaScript.

Once you have a rudimentary grasp of Python, do the Django tutorial and build yourself a sample app. Django is the way to get up and going with a modern-ish MVC (model-view-controller; you'll see what it means) app. It's very easy to get going as a developer and the only headache you'll find is the Virtualenv thing. Easier than getting Rails (which is Django for Ruby) going for the first time, because Rails has the potential for more version conflicts.

Lastly, to build out web pages, consider Zurb Foundation or Twitter Bootstrap. These are premade CSS components that make building pages faster (thus good for "rapid prototyping"). They also bring along browser compatibility and jQuery for added UI niceness.

If you want to animate things on the page, search for animate.css.

I did this a couple years ago to build my first app and now I have a side project that I coded myself. You can do it! :D

lmm 7 hours ago 0 replies      
I think you're wrong to dismiss Python and Ruby; they're much more elegant than javascript (javascript fans will say its ugliness is superficial, but when you're starting out the superficial things matter), and not as complex as Haskell (complexity that will help you out once your program gets above ~10k lines, but will get in your way as you get started). I'm not sure where you're coming from with the "too big"; the core language syntax for Python is very small and simple, the reason the download is large is the large standard library. Which, again, is what you want as a beginner. (For a larger, more production-oriented project it's more important that there's a good standardized library system and project management tool, and to be honest the Python ecosystem falls down somewhat here. But by the time that becomes an issue you'll have learnt what you need to to respond appropriately)

> My goal is to build a small but real feeling version of my idea to understand and test if there's actually value.

If you are already familiar with Jquery, just make a wireframe of page writes in Javascript that show your concept.

You might even learn something while you're at it.

Once you have the concept mapped, demonstrated, and maybe shown to a potential customer, you can consider learning a more complex javascript framework that might use real data,.

The easiest language to learn is whichever has the best tools available to you to learn with.

If you're someone who can just read a book and go from there, try a few books and go with whatever one you like most. If you prefer learning by being taught, find courses need you and learn the language that they teach. If you want to learn online, go to Coursera or Treehouse and pick an option. And so on.

Don't choose an "easy" language and then struggle with the learning material - pick good learning materials first, learn how to write some simple code, and then use that knowledge to learn a more appropriate language for what you have in mind.

You might be approaching this from the wrong direction. Maybe you dont need a programming language at all, but rather some user interface sketching tool?

If you want to learn programming itself, there are very few shortcuts as you will have problems along the way if you dont have the basics down. Pick a language and dive in. I will probably take less time than you think.

8bithero 5 hours ago 0 replies      
I think the best approach is to build something practical like a web app. Granted, things may still feel like magic when you're done with the tutorials, but the mist slowly clears the more you practice and every other day you'll be having "AHA!" moments.From what you've mention it does sound like JavaScript is what you're looking for. You probably don't need to learn an entire framework like AngularJS if you don't care about writing entire apps and only care about adding 'flourishes' to your designs. However, I need to agree @lmm, when starting out it really is the superficial things that matter. Personally I found JavaScript to be a bit tedious at first. Not to mention some hidden surprises you may run into (i.e. how scopes bubble, etc.) - so if your intention is to write full apps, I don't know if JS should be your first choice (but it should definitely be your second!).

In the case where you want to learn all aspects of building web-apps (and don't come from a computer science background), I would have to suggest you start out buy learning a framework like Ruby on Rails or Django (haven't tried flask, so can't tell). The reason I'd suggest one of these MVC frameworks is that you will learn a lot about the REST architecture (REST is the fundamentals of the modern web, you will probably be consuming REST services with JS frameworks). At least with rails it taught me the fundamentals, without even realising it. After figuring out how rails handled resources looking at APIs etc, all made sense. So for this reason I'd recommend people who don't have a CS background to learn from one of these frameworks - it really helped me fill in a lot of missing pieces when it comes to developing for the web. As for the language, I've tried both Ruby and Python, and found Ruby to be a bit more fun to write. It made programming seem like solving a puzzle rather than figuring out obscure syntax (which was the case for more 'hard core' languages like C++). Not to mention the fact that it seems to be the language of least surprises - more often than not, it does exactly what you expect it to do.

Sorry if I went on a bit of a tangent. Wrote this in a hurry. Hope it helps.

Out of the ones you listed, Haskell would be the most difficult for sure. For quick prototyping though, like others mentioned, the tools around the language would make a bigger impact than the language itself. So RoR or Django would make a lot of sense. You might also wanna take a look at Meteor (Javascript) for quick prototyping

Python was designed as an easy to learn language and it has a nice syntax.Its main drawback is in its 'dynamic typing' nature which means that you can make a mistake which can stay hidden for a long time (compared to a compilation error), which is quite annoying.Sorry but I don't know a language which has the same qualities as Python (easy to read, lots of library) but is statically typed..
collyw 6 hours ago 0 replies      
Python is nice in that it is a powerful language with advanced features but you don't need to use / understand those features to get started. So while you may view it as "large" language, you can get started without understanding these things.

If you contrast this with Java, Java is a smaller language, but forces you to use object orientation, so you generally have to have a better understanding of abstract concepts from the beginning.

Anyway, that's two of the languages I know reasonably well. Out of those two I would go for Python.

jardaroh 7 hours ago 2 replies      
This depends entirely on what you are making.If it is heavily datadriven and you are only prototyping an ORM will help you immensely especially if it creates your database structures for you, for this I reccomend Django (Python). If you are not beholden to a heavily datadriven system you can go with Flask (Python). If you however do not even need a backend to talk to, lets say you do not need data consistency or storage at all, you can get away with an entirely client side javascript solution and later plug in a backend.JQuery is awesome, I use it every day and it makes life a lot easier.
phantom_oracle 7 hours ago 0 replies      
JavaScript frameworks are not easy to learn.

Just to add to what the other folks have said, if you are looking to rapidly prototype something with a backend, perhaps using Rails with all its gems will allow you to do so. You will have to eventually learn Ruby and Rails itself though, but I am sure there are a ton of "putting it together" tutorials out there.

Just plug in the multiple pieces and you're good to go.

adwf 1 day ago 1 reply      
Really awesome. I was working on something like this myself, but using Jquery ajax combined with history.pushState for partial page loads. This is much better!

There are a couple things that I had on my TODO list that could be handy though:

1) Caching - if you hover back and forth over two links, it will keep loading them every time. Dunno whether this can be alleviated or not.

2) Greater customisability. It'd be great if I could customise whether it was a hover or mousedown preload, on a per link basis. Some links benefit from hover, others it might be overkill.

3) Lastly, it would be cool if it could link up with custom actions other than just links. For example, jquery ajax loading a fragment of html to update a page. This is probably lower down on my priority list though, as the full page prefetch works remarkably fast.

Keep up the great work!

primitivesuave 2 days ago 1 reply      
One way I see to move this forward in websites at scale is to run a test where you find out the percentage of hovers that result in a click. Suppose its 90% - that means that 10% of those hovers result in fruitless busy-work for your server. Multiply bandwidth + server cost by 10%, and compare that amount to the amount you'd be willing to pay for near-instant load times.

For many companies (Facebook, Twitter, etc) the desire for instant user gratification is paramount, so the push toward instant browsing experience is a very real possibility. One problem is that most people wouldn't really notice, because these websites load pretty quickly as it is.

One interesting direction is if there was some kind of AI in the background that knows what pages you're likely to visit and preloads them - Facebook stalking victims would become an instantclick away.

While interesting, I think this kind of functionality should be implemented only by browser developers and should be turned off by default. Really, I can wait 1 second until the site loads. What I don't want is some library accessing sites without my permission. I usually place mouse over links to see what URL it points to and I sometimes do not wish to click.

Prefetching really shouldn't be blindly applied to everything as users may have bandwidth limited. Even though your implementation is better than browser prefetch on users it does take the choice away from the user unless individual sites make it easy for users to opt out.

* Define office hours for yourself. They don't have to be traditional ones, but knowing when you are 'on' and 'off' helps you stick to that. Enforcing 'not working' is as important as working.

* If you share your home, make sure that your cohabitors understand you really are working when at home. While that may sound obvious, it will help you draw a line in the sand should they ask you to be in for a delivery or repair person, etc - those things can be a real flow killer.

* Make your home office a separate room, if at all possible. If the door locks, so much the better: there will be times when a locked door will help you (either keeping others out or giving you that extra subtle indicator that stuff needs to get done).

* Have a clock on the wall - it's a cheap, simple, subtle way to increase the 'work' feel of the room you're in, plus it's a change in the depth of focus after hours of screen-distance reading.

* Take breaks, get out of the house.

* Participate in some kind of community chat (IRC, HipChat, Campfire whatever) to prevent going insane. Consider rationing your time on that chat, rather than having it as an open channel.

caw 6 hours ago 0 replies      
I just started working from home in January.

My suggestions:

* A dedicated space is a nice to have. It helps separate the work/not-work relationship

* I have two computers for 3 reasons. First is work/not-work balance. Second is related but there's a clause in my employment contract that's basically "work done on company's computer is owned by work". Lastly, the company paid for the computer.

* I have a Herman Miller Embody chair though I've also used a Steelcase Leap (v1, v2) in my last job. Regardless of what anyone tells you, go sit in the chairs at a store. I found the Aeron to be uncomfortable for myself, even though everyone seems to love them.

* On setting up the office, make sure it's ergonomic. Get a monitor riser, laptop riser, footrest, or whatever else you need to avoid destroying your body while sitting all day.

My biggest tip was to have a "work computer" and a "personal computer". Resist the temptation to switch the work computer on when you're not working.

Otherwise you want to get a good routine; none of that making coffee for hours, or doing the laundry. During the working-day you're supposed to work.

Otherwise the single biggest thing I needed was to leave the house every day - Regardless of how much food I had at home I'd always go out to the sandwich store every day to make sure I had some away-time, and a little conversation. (Granted most evenings I'd see people, but working day-in, day-out at home "alone" contact is important.)

I actually have two boots on the same PC, one OS is for work, one OS for personal stuff. That way, all the things I install for work don't interfere after work hours (and visa versa). E-mails are loaded then separately too, so I don't get distracted. That way, I have a complete separation. I'm not sure virtual desktops would be enough for me.

It helps me to maintain a fairly inflexible work schedule along with a dedicated space free of outside distractions (ability to close door is a must). Since you don't mention having kids/spouse living with you, this will be easier. I've worked from home for the better part of almost 15 years now, both with and without kids, and I will say that kids change everything! I'm glad I learned how to work independently without kids because trying to do it with young ones around is a challenge.

I like the idea of just replicating "my desk" from my job at home and just "pretending" I'm actually at work.

Mostly, it means using HTTP verbs on URLs to represent create/update/read/delete. (IE, POST/PUT/GET/DELETE)

There are other intricacies like HATEOAS (which sounds like a horrible breakfast cereal), but it basically mostly comes down to updating resources using http verbs.


(Personally I don't get the reverence it gets since it's basically just about verbs and locations, but whatever, it works well enough).

REST is an architectural style. It is a formalisation of Fielding's observation how the Web works.

A RESTful interface follows those principles and must employ hyperlinks (links in HTML, XLink in XML, _links property in HAL+JSON) and/or hypermedia controls (forms, XForms) and standard HTTP methods to assert state on resources. Resources are adressed by URIs.

An interface description concentrates on describing the semantics of media types of the resources (unless you were clever and picked an appropriate one that already exists) and link relations ("a", "link", "area" element with "rel" attribute in HTML; link objects in HAL+JSON; RFC 5988 Link headers for any media type). Link relations are standardised by IANA, but you can make your own one and assign some semantics to it by coining a URI. When an interface describes particular URIs (what you typically get when you google for REST interface examples), it's doing it wrong. An interface implementation allows a user agent to discover resources through hyperlinks and what you can do with them through an OPTIONS request. You can recognise a REST n00b by their lack of talking about link relations, which is so far everyone else's answers. I must consider colund's and dclara's answers as wrong/unhelpful because their explanation is so limited and unprecise.


shanemhansen 1 day ago 1 reply      
I'm happy to read comments that indicate that understanding of REST is starting to improve. The old adage about sex applies to REST: "Most people that say they are doing it, aren't doing it. Those that are are probably doing it wrong".

It might be best to preface this with a list of things that REST isn't. Rest is not:

1. Pretty urls from your framework of choice that look like /dogs/breed/chow/weight/150 . Why? because the query string exists for a reason and has well defined semantics.2. Using some framework serialization package to output xml or json for content negotiations. Why? because the hardest, most important part of REST is defining media types, and the garbage spewn by most serialization frameworks is not a clean media type.3. Clients which access API's by curl'ing example.com/products/$productID are not restful. Why? because RESTful resources should be discoverable using hypertext. A client with a hard-coded url template is not a RESTful client.

REST, real REST, is a great architecture. In fact it's fair to say that the best example of RESTful architecture is the web you see in your browser. API's are usually a shallow copycat. What makes plain old html pages a poster child for REST? I'm glad you asked.

1. Hyper text. Guess what, JSON doesn't provide hypertext. JSON ootb is not restful. Certain standards on top of JSON (like the _link attribute) help bridge the gap. Our friends HTML and XML support hyper text. HTML in the standard way, and XML with the link attribute. If you're not using a content-type with well-defined semantics for links, you're not using REST.

2. Choices for intelligent UA's to browse or present as choices to their users. Forms provide a RESTful way to give a user a choice and allow them to manipulate or browser resources. JSON doesn't have anything like forms builtin. If I can't browse your "restful" API with my browser, you're not using REST.

the list goes on. But don't worry about it. Aside from not being quite as hip, it's perfectly ok if you're app isn't RESTful. Does your app provide a service that performs an action for the user? Maybe it's ok for that to be RPC. Does your app need to be tooling friendly for enterprise folks? It's ok to give them something SOAP related to make it easy for them to integrate their clients. Does your app do some sort of low-level file synchronization like dropbox? Then by all means run your service over HTTP so you can get through firewalls, but nobody cares if you pass back a list of binary identifiers instead of hyperlinks.

Really all that matters is that from a usability perspective, it's nice to make accessing your API easy, and HTTP is a great way to go if you want to lower the barrier to entry in using your API. Don't worry if your API doesn't use "hypertext as the engine of state" if it doesn't make sense for you. When you need to enhance your API, think of doing it the RESTful way first.

feral 2 days ago 2 replies      
When I was defining our API at Synference, I looked this up.

As far as I'm concerned, pragmatically, its using the HTTP verbs to operate on resources, named according to a certain URL convention (e.g. users/<userid>), when the semantics of the verbs are followed.

E.g. GET shouldn't change resource state; POST should be used to create a new resource (which the server will typically name); PUT should be used to update an existing named resource, etc.

What format of data sent using these verbs can vary - JSON is one popular format, and what I'd choose.

However, in practice, when people say their API is RESTful, it often just means 'you can access our API over HTTP'. Often you see everything implemented as GET requests - for better or worse.

And there are some pragmatic reasons for that - e.g. maybe devs decide they want to use JSONP to get around same origin restrictions; there's web developers out there who can only make GET requests, etc.

advisedwang 2 days ago 0 replies      
REST has two different meanings, which I outline below. Both say each URL identifies a resource, which is represented with a document of some kind.

* The practical, common usage is a remote API built on HTTP, which uses HTTP verbs in a logical manner, exchanging JSON.

* The original meaning is what I believe is now better referred to as "Hypermedia as the engine of state" (HATEOS). In this world a URLs are not meaningful, and clients never construct or parse URLs. Instead a document format (hypermedia) specifies URLs and indicates what they do. The document format drives and defines the API.

This difference causes some arguments: http://roy.gbiv.com/untangled/2008/rest-apis-must-be-hyperte...

RivieraKid 2 days ago 1 reply      
To elaborate a bit after a lot of confusion and wondering, I came to the conclusion that REST is just a very poorly defined buzzword. Another conclusion was that it's ok a good practice in fact to combine REST and RPC in one API. (Specifically use REST if you can, otherwise RPC.)

I personally define REST in two different ways, let's call them REST1 and REST2, short versions:


The API is a set of collections, for example we can have /articles and /comments. We can access individual items by /[collection]/[id]. The API can allow GET, POST, PUT, DELETE operations on both collections and items. Collections are filterable, you can do /articles?author=123 for example. Basically, this like a simple interface over a set of database tables.


The server has a certain state. The API is a set of views on that state. A view can be defined as a function without side-effects that takes the server state as an argument and returns something, usually encoded in JSON. Every view has a certain URL and can have GET, POST, PUT and DELETE operations allowed. The POST method is allowed only for a special type of view a collection.

The second definition is more flexible. For example, /fulltextsearch?q=test or /multiply/3/5 would be completely REST2ful. But for some tasks, you would still need RPC, e.g. if you need to change the state in a non-trivial way.

I hope it's clear, if not, tell me.

REST is best described by the original paper. There are many other ways to describe it.

I like to think of the basic idea of REST as CRUD over HTTP. Think about how you interact with a database and move that abstraction out to a service level. Instead of doing things like "sign in", "leave group", "down vote entry" you instead "create session", "delete membership", "update entry". That's the key concept.

It's really worth reading the thesis that started it all (http://www.ics.uci.edu/~fielding/pubs/dissertation/top.htm) and I also find this HATEOAS article (http://timelessrepo.com/haters-gonna-hateoas) worthwhile reading, but to answer your question succinctly, here's my short definition:

"REST is inter-computer communication structured such that the server doesn't maintain any client state so that neither the duration between requests nor the number of clients impacts the resource usage of the server."

It's not quite true, but the architecture has benefits:

1) No need to replicate client sessions in a clustered environment.

2) There's no impact if a client wait hours between requests.

3) Every resource a client uses has a unique location on the network.

REST is supposed to mean systems compliant with the architectural style defined by Roy Fielding in chapter 5 of his dissertation: https://www.ics.uci.edu/~fielding/pubs/dissertation/rest_arc...

Unfortunately, in popular programming it has become to mean anything and everything that uses resource-oriented URLs and at least loosely: HTTP methods as verbs to "operate" on those resources.

The misuse of the "REST" as a term, has required the creation of a new term: Hypermedia APIs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypermedia_API

Lot's of people describing HTTP here, but that's not REST. REST is transport agnostic and has a lot of other things going on it like resource discovery.

I still hold to my belief that nobody actually knows how to do "real" REST, but most everybody implements some subset of it - which is fine.

adamlett 1 day ago 0 replies      
The way I've always understood REST, it's all about having a rich vocabulary of nouns (resources), but a very limited vocabulary of verbs (basically only Create, Read, Update, Delete). So, in a RESTful version of this site, you don't 'upvote' a post (by which I mean call a remote procedure called 'upvote' with the post ID as an argument), you instead 'create an upvote' related to the post.
colund 2 days ago 1 reply      
In my understanding REST is just a name for when HTTP (and in particular its verbs GET, PUT, POST, DELETE, HEAD) are used to operate on data (resources) by using URL paths, headers and data. The objective is something similar to the good old "remote procedure call" concept where computers can invoke actions on remote computers. There used to be complicated technologies like CORBA and plain RMI to aid computers in being able to communicate with each others.

Modern often means simple. It should be easy to operate or resources via a web API and REST is often the answer. Use the HTTP technology which is already there and embrace it and create technologies around it. KISS principle is king, as opposed to inventing a proprietary complex and useless own method of data communication.

I can't give you the academic answer, but I can tell you what it means in practice.

Rest is a standardized way of structuring url's and http verbs.

For instance:

1) To get all "posts" from a blog, you send a GET request to www.whatever.com/posts

2) To read a single post, you send a GET request to www.whatever.com/posts/<id>

3) To create a single post, you send a POST request to www.whatever.com/posts

4) Finally, to get all comments from a post, you send a GET request to www.whatever.com/posts/<id>/comments

REST is just a generally agreed upon convention that makes good use of HTTP verbs to create simpler URL structures when interacting with resources.

So basically, instead of having the following endpoints:site.com/create_usersite.com/delete_usersite.com/show_usersite.com/update_user

You'd instead have a single use endpoint like so:site.com/user

And throw different HTTP verbs at it to signify the action.

It's definitely a well-defined concept and been part of Ruby on Rails since version 1.2.

REST is an architectural style, a set of constraints applied to the design of a web API. An API can be considered RESTful if it satisfies ALL of the constraints.

The most commonly ignored/misunderstood constraint is that of Hypermedia As The Engine Of Application State. You can read more about the application of the term here: http://roysvork.wordpress.com/2013/03/13/why-im-giving-rest-...

While there are very confused and layered interpretations of what REST is, the reason it is important is that many of the Web Services APIs that preceded this trend used HTTP merely as a transport, but ignored so many of HTTP's features. This lead to them being difficult to use without bulky libraries. By using more of HTTP's features or basically HTTP as the API, it greatly simplifies and opens up possibilities and the tools that can interact with the API.

I think you're initial thought is correct - it's not very well-defined. Indeed, the joke is that REST's primary utility is that it enables you to criticize anything with "but it's not RESTful". Indeed, Roy Fielding himself used to be famous for this.

What REST has come to mean, to me (and perhaps to others), is a URL style whereby data, including application state, is addressed in a hierarchical way. However, I don't think that's what Roy really meant.

The wikipedia article is not bad: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/REST

It's about using the existing infrastructure of the web (HTTP, hyperlinks), leveraging it as much as you can (caching, content negotiation, etc.) and putting as little shit on top of it as you can (please no SOAP!)

If you actually mean HATEOAS then it gets a bit more complex, but in practice most people just interpret that as 'it should be discoverable just like a website is.'

Mountain View, CA (we also love interns, and remote is a possibility for the right candidate)


At Khan Academy, we're a small, 52-person non-profit tech startup. We're trying hard to do good for the world. Here's a testimonial we received just two days ago:

January 29, 2014

I am an adult returning to school for a midlife career change. I have always disliked math and thought I was bad at it -- and my last math class was over 20 years ago! But I just passed my Accuplacer placement test, thanks to Khan Academy. Thank you so much for making it fun and easy to refresh my skills. I also purchased the Accuplacer test prep app, but I found myself coming back to Khan Academy more often because I liked it more. Now I am learning coding at school, so I'll definitely be back for more!


This letter is one story, but every month we hear about hundreds of lives like this that we've transformed.


Most of you reading this are familiar with Sal's videos, but we also have hundreds of videos by other teachers, partnerships with organizations like MoMA and the California Academy of Sciences, and a huge library of interactive exercises. Over 20 million math problems are done every week on our site. That's a lot.

With this huge scale, we're able to study learning in a way that wasn't previously possible. We've run tests and found that students learn more when they're given harder problems based on an intelligent machine-learning algorithm [1]. Right now we have dozens of A/B tests running to help us understand what we can do to make people learn more, such as testing how different spaced repetition algorithms affect retention. We're also beginning to release anonymized student data to external researchers.

We're doing a big mobile push. Around 20% of our traffic comes from phones and tablets but we have only two mobile devs so far. We're totally overhauling our iOS app; if you join us now, you can be a main developer on an app that is guaranteed to have millions of users. This is a rare opportunity.

You'll be working alongside a small team with the best in the business though we have "celebrity" devs like jQuery creator John Resig and Google's first employee (and former Director of Technology) Craig Silverstein, we have many more you haven't heard of but who are also amazing.

Whether you're a machine learning guru or you take pride in perfecting UI details for a dropdown menu [2], we have something for you. We really have a great team and culture. We use (and contribute to) new technology [3], we invest heavily in mentoring our interns (and full-timers) [4], we have lots of fun at and around work [5], and even though we're a non-profit, we pay well too. I'm also proud to say that we're winning against GitHub in team Bensity (i.e., percentage of employees named Ben) [6].


We're hiring engineers (frontend, backend, mobile, data science), designers, and more -- if you're a designer, you might also be interested in our parnership with Bridge [7]. And if you want to have an amazing summer (or fall or spring) building real features for real users, we're hiring interns too.

As I said above, mobile is a big priority for us. Let me know if you know someone great.

Please apply at https://www.khanacademy.org/careers directly (say you saw us on HN!). If you have questions, feel free to ask here or to email me at alpert+HN@khanacademy.org.

Parse.ly - Remote (EST / CST preferred) - http://parse.ly

We're a fully distributed team (see http://bit.ly/distributed-teams for a post by me, the CTO) -- which is to say, a merit-based, technology-forward, super-bright team of Pythonistas who happen to collaborate using the same methods of major open web projects like Wikipedia, Wordpress, Ubuntu, and Mozilla.

We are well-funded with a solid SaaS business model, we are growing, and we are product-focused.

We're looking to expand our engineering team. We are primarily looking for full-stack and UI-focused engineers, especially those with expertise in front-end data visualization / interaction. You should know modern web and mobile design principles and be particularly excited by d3.js and its associated ecosystem.

You'd be joining the company at a great time. Our engineering team is still small enough that we feel like an elite task force, but unlike two years ago, we are making millions in revenue and have a ridiculous amount of data to draw insight out of on behalf of our customers.

You should be an expert in Python and JavaScript. You should be willing to learn, or already know, technologies like Tornado, MongoDB, Redis, Postgres, and Amazon Web Services. You should be extremely handy at a UNIX command line, possessing all the skills of a sysadmin.

If you join, you'd become part of a team that is building one of the web's greatest analytics companies, while also serving a strong mission: helping editors and writers at top news organizations excel in the digital medium.

Our software aggregates data on >5 billion pageviews per month of traffic, and we work with major media companies as customers, such as The Atlantic, Arstechnica, Mashable, The New Republic, MIT Technology Review, and many more.

Apply by sending a (short!) cover letter to work@parsely.com. Mention this HN post and say you're looking for Andrew.

Include links to online portfolio, Github, LinkedIn, or any similar services, if you have them. If you have a Python code example that you think expresses your Python coding style, that would also be a good thing to send along -- as plain attachment, Github Gist, or similar.

Our customers love us, because we move quickly, build great things, and provide amazing support. Everyone talks to customers a lot.

We're still a small team, so you'll have a large impact on company culture. We're highly influenced by Valve's Employee handbook and Stripe and GitHub's cultures, and have as flat a structure as we can.

We're looking for frontend engineers (JS), designers (must be able to HTML+CSS), and backend engineers (Clojure). Being a mix of those is of course welcome! We lean towards senior experienced engineers, or junior engineers who can display great talent.

We're also looking for engineers for sales and marketing positions. Since we have an incredibly technical product, and selling directly to developers, the marketing positions (dev evangelism, CRO, analytics, etc - think a patio11-style engineer) require significant development experience. Sales positions are a good fit for engineers looking for a change, esp those who love automating manual processes.

San Francisco, CA

Mixpanel (YCS09; http://mixpanel.com) is the most advanced advanced analytics platform ever for web & mobile applications.

Mixpanel is profitable, with millions in monthly revenue, and we're backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Sequoia Capital, and Max Levchin.


We have two types of engineering positions available - systems and product. Both of these positions require you to be able to work in San Francisco, CA.

Systems engineers build and scale our infrastructure, and write mostly C, C++, and Python. These are the people working on our custom datastore. This position requires at least 2 years of experience writing systems software. Solid C experience is a plus.

Product engineers are full-stack developers who build the parts people interact with - reporting interfaces, APIs, dataviz stuff, and more - and write mostly Python, JS, and Less. This position requires at least 2 years of software engineering experience, no specialization required. Solid JS experience is a plus though.

The engineering team is still small (10), and there's a lot of interesting stuff to do. Happy to talk details.

If you are interested, drop me a line - tim@mixpanel.com.

Eponym (New York, NY, USA)http://www.eponymous.co

We're an eyewear company looking for engineers to help architect and build our software which powers eyeglass orders for fashion brands.

Our team is looking for someone to take the lead iterating on user experience features. What kinds of things should we A/B test? Should we implement an email capture? How can we update the checkout flow? Where are customers having difficulty when buying prescription eyewear on our websites? You would help decide what kinds of features to build, and then be responsible for implementing, testing, and iterating on new features. You should be proficient in HTML/CSS/JS (framework-du-jour) and interested in using these skills to help our customers have a great experience.

This also applies to internal dashboards: we ship everything from our office, and have a lot of infrastructure to keep track of customers, order status, laboratory status, and shipments. How can we build more usable tools?

Our backend is Python (Flask) and MongoDB, including bits of Celery, nginx, and uwsgi. We do a lot of integration with the UPS (in fact, we maintain an open-source UPS library [1]). If you are interested in helping develop our eyewear API, please reach out too!

We develop white-label eyewear for other fashion brands; Classic Specs and Steven Alan are some of our brands. Email me! jay@classicspecs.com

[1] https://github.com/classicspecs/ClassicUPS. If you build something cool that others would find useful, we want you to open-source it.

Mutually Human - Grand Rapids, Michigan (INTERN yes, REMOTE/H1B no)



We are a small team passionate about making people's lives better through software.

A little bit about us:

  - We write custom software of all shapes and sizes for clients all over the US  - Though everyone here is fluent in Ruby, we don't artificially limit ourselves.    In the past few months, I've worked with Objective-C, Backbone.js (inside    PhoneGap), Angular.js, Ruby (of course) and a little bit of Java and C#.  - We practice a sustainable pace. We recognize that we each have lives,    activities, and families outside of work. Late nights and > 40 hour weeks are    rare by design.  - We're agile, but not dogmatic about it. Our process evolves to suit our needs.  - We offer competitive salaries, health/vision/dental insurance, quarterly profit    sharing, retirement + match, weekly catered lunches, and a top-floor office    with snacks, guitars, and your choice of standing or sitting desks.
A little bit about Grand Rapids:

  - 2.5 hours from Chicago and Detroit, less than an hour to the beach.  - Lots of great beer. Founders Brewery (a mile from our office) has 3 beers in    the Beer Advocate top 15. HopCat is a World Class bar on BA.    Just look here: http://beeradvocate.com/beerfly/city/43  - If youre renting anything larger than a breadbox in the Bay Area or NYC,    you can afford a house here. I bought a nice house with a mortgage payment    30% lower than the rent of my 1 bedroom apartment in Mountain View.  - A growing technology and startup community.
A little bit about you:

  - You love writing software, and you have a few years of experience doing it.  - You learn new stuff quickly. Youve used a lot of technologies, but youre not    afraid to use more. It would be nice if you use and love Ruby, but not required.  - You believe software is written for humans, not computers.  - You want to come into work every day and enjoy the people you work with.
I'm a software craftsman on this awesome team. If you're interested, email me and I'll get you more info on how to apply:

San Francisco, CA - Zenbox. Software Engineer. [LOCAL | RELOCATE OK]

We're a YC company wrangling SaaS to work together (as they should), starting by bringing the biggest apps our customers use right into Gmail. We've been growing our team over the past few months, and looking to add even more awesome people. We work with dozens of API's to show our users profiles of their customers without having to jump out of the email flow - imagine having http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtzqRSlgqkw available when helping customers.

Thousands of people use it every day for hours on end, and are happy to pay for it to make sure they can continue using it. But there's still so much polish and improvement possible.

We also spend time improving our tooling, and tools for other developers. As one example we've recently vastly improved the source-map capabilities of the ClojureScript compiler and added reified keywords to the runtime to make ClojureScript a better citizen on the web. We do it because we want to give back to the communities that have enabled us, because it helps us, and because it's interesting.Looking for an engineer who loves the craft, who cares about building product, and is excited about helping customers.

Interested in working with Reactjs, Om, and functional programming in the client? We're building a team that's able to reduce complexity others balk at into simple, easy to reason about system, so we can continue to move quickly and delight both customers and ourselves.

This is both UI and backend work.

Languages: Clojure, Clojurescript, Javascript. sean @ zenboxapp https://www.zenboxapp.com

Academia.edu, San Francisco, CA

Academia.edu is trying to improve the way that scientific publishing works. Here is the current way it works. A scientist does some experiments and writes up a paper. He sends it to a journal who sends it out to two or three peer reviewers. They peer review it, which means writing a page of comments on it, and recommending either accepting or rejecting it. Usually you get a few journal rejections and the average time-lag between finishing the paper and its being published is 12 months. Then the paper is behind a paywall and people have to pay $35 to read it.

Our view of scientific publishing is that when you finish the paper you should post it immediately on the internet. Peer review should be done post-publication, and it should be done by the community, reddit-style, not by just two or three people. We believe peer review will be more robust that way. And the paper should be openly and freely accessible for anyone to read, along with the data and any accompanying materials like source code.

We believe that this will speed up science, and accelerate research into curing diseases, reducing infant mortality, and discovering clean energy amongst other things.

We are a mission-driven team based in San Francisco. We have raised $17 million from Khosla ventures and Spark Capital. Bijan Sabet from Spark Capital writes "We believe open science is really important. We believe Academia.edu is going to have a profound impact on the world." Over 7 million academics have joined Academia.edu, and 800k plus join up each month.

If you are a mission-driven person then you may enjoy the atmosphere at Academia.edu and the problems we are working on.

We are looking to hire full stack software engineers. Technologies we use include Ruby, Rails, Postgres, Mongo and Varnish. Our office is in downtown San Francisco. For more information, visit http://academia.edu/hiring. If you are interested to learn more, please email Richard Price at richard [at] academia.edu

San Francisco - Red Hot Labs - http://www.redhotlabs.com

We're on a mission to revolutionize how mobile developers harness their data. Our product, still in beta, functions as the central hub for all the services mobile developers already use. By weaving together the data from these disparate services, we gain a comprehensive view of the app and are uniquely positioned to deliver insights and value back to the developer.

This isn't our first trip around the block. Our previous startup was acquired by Zynga and our core technology turned into FarmVille and the rest of Zyngas most successful games. It was a wild ride and now were full steam ahead on a new adventure.

We're looking for passionate, energetic, highly talented engineers to join our team. By becoming a foundational member of our team you will help shape the direction of our product, company and culture. Were believe in constantly challenging ourselves to learn new things and would love to teach you what we know and learn from you as well.

We want all members of the team to be full-stack engineers and well-rounded individuals. But, we're especially excited about the following profiles:

Senior Product Engineer: You've built products from concept all the way to maturity. You're as opinionated and influential about product as you are about coding. You're a master at JS/CSS/HTML and customer facing technologies. Bonus points if youre on-top of your front-end frameworks like Angular (which we use!), Ember, or Meteor.

Senior Systems Engineer: You've architected and scaled backend systems to millions of users. You've put out every kind of fire and learned a lot in the process. You understand the tradeoffs of different data stores, server architectures, and low-level services.

Senior Data Engineer: You've built models which extract insights or predictions from large, living datasets. You can engage with a dataset in an unfamiliar domain, grasp the dynamics of the system and impress subject area experts with your result.

Stupendous Junior Engineer: You don't have years of working experience, but you have handful of mind-blowing personal or school projects. You were among the best students at a top tier engineering university. Your TA's and classmates gush about your code.

Scribd (YC '06), San Francisco - H1B, FULL-TIME, and INTERN are all welcome

Scribd ("Netflix for eBooks", top 100 website, 40 people) is hiring talented hackers of all kinds to help us build the library of the 21st century.

We've hired SIX full-time people and TONS of interns from these "Who is Hiring" threads ... it really works!

We're looking for people who want to work with:

* Ruby on Rails (we're the #2 largest rails site, after Twitter)

* Javascript (well, we use Coffeescript)

* iOS (we're a top 10 eBook app, with a 2 person iOS team)

* Machine Learning / data mining / recommendations - think Netflix prize, but for books!

* Data science / data analysis (SQL guru?)

* Internships: junior standing or above. We hire several interns every summer and year-round.

That said, we care way more about your personality and general hacking skills then what languages you've used so far, so if you haven't used these but want to break into mobile or web development, this could be a good opportunity for you. We've hired people from these threads with everywhere from 0 to 10 years of experience.

We're profitable, very well funded and have a really fun office environment (go-karts + a rock climbing wall!). Scribd alumni have gone on to found 4 other YCombinator companies, more than from any other startup. We think this says something about the kind of people that we like to hire, and we love hiring people with entrepreneur and startup ambitions. We are also always looking for international people interested in moving to the US and can help you secure a visa.

We recently launched a service that's being called the "Netflix for books" and are really excited about it. Read more here: http://wrd.cm/1dJquzz

More info is at http://www.scribd.com/jobs, but as a HN user, feel free to apply directly by emailing me at jared at scribd.com.

Back-end web developer - Cambridge/Boston or New York City strongly preferred - PersonalGenomes.org 501(c)(3) / Open Humans (openhumans.org)

As the Senior Software Engineer at PersonalGenomes.org you will work on the Open Humans Network, a project that aims to help people aggregate and share their health and trait data to advance scientific, educational and humanitarian causes.

Our model for this initiative is the work weve done on the Harvard Personal Genome Project (PGP), which has over 3,000 volunteers publicly sharing extensive biological and trait data, including hundreds of whole genomes, exomes, and genotyping data sets, over 1,000 health records, microbiome datasets from various bodily habitats, device data, brain imaging, etc. This combination of a highly informed and engaged community of volunteers and their contributions of extremely rich biological and health data, along with a network of collaboration-minded researchers, is an incredibly powerful scientific and educational resource that is unrivaled elsewhere. We will build on this momentum with this exciting new initiative that will transform participatory research and advance human health.

Our current hiring position is focusing on someone with back-end web development skills, as we have plans to work with a design firm for initial front-end work. Because we plan to develop open source software used by researchers, we believe Python (which many scientists use) is generally preferred.

We're looking for someone who...

-- Is interested in building and managing a full-stack website. As the Senior Software Engineer, your expertise will be an important factor in decisions about what kind of technology is used and how its deployed.

-- Has used multiple programming languages to build production systems (e.g. Python, JavaScript, Ruby).

-- Is experienced with back-end web development (e.g. Rails or Django).

-- Is comfortable managing Unix servers, cloud-based services and has opinions about how to store and disseminate large datasets (currently around 50TB total, although we would start with managing <10GB).

-- Works well in a small team of developers and scientists.

-- Loves science, participatory research, and free/open source ideals.

-- Believes in our mission!

About PersonalGenomes.org: PersonalGenomes.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to generate, aggregate and interpret human biological and trait data on an unprecedented scale. PersonalGenome.org's mission is to make a wide spectrum of data about humans accessible to increase biological literacy and improve human health. Its efforts are informed by values encouraging greater transparency and collaboration between researchers and participants. The organization supports the Personal Genome Project (PGP) global network. The first PGP research study was founded at Harvard Medical School in 2005, and PGP sites now exist at leading institutions in four countries. We also produce the annual Genomes, Environments and Traits (GET) Conference. More information is available at www.personalgenomes.org

About Open Humans: We have years of practical experience, thousands of participants, and diverse data sets accrued. What we need now is an experienced developer to help us build a site for participants and researchers to manage and publicly share this data. Think of this as a nonprofit startup project!

Read more about Open Humans at http://openhumans.org and apply for the position by contacting us: Jason Bobe (jason@personalgenomes.org) and Madeleine Ball (mpball@gmail.com)

To apply, try implementing some of the following tasks, and email them at career@pirate3d.com. We arrange flight and visa application for you (keyword: H1B, called EP in Singapore).

* 3D processing write a GLSL fragment shader that renders a sphere, cylinder and cube next to each other with lighting. The vertex shader should not be used and kept minimalistic. Include in the email a discussion about your approach and how it could be extended into an actual application.

* iOS/Android write a small application allowing to scroll through hundreds of images in the style of Windows Metro UI, but vertically and with circular loading (meaning the last items are followed by the first items, the first items are preceded by the last items, and so on).

* 3D processing write in your favorite language a program that scales uniformly the object of an STL file to the smallest size so that at least 99% of the points within the object can be contained inside a sphere of radius 1.0 that is entirely within the object itself. Include in the email some explanation of your approach and alternative approaches you could have taken.

* Security write in your favorite language or pseudo-language a program that encrypts a short message within a single UDP datagram for a destination with known IP, port, and public key. You don't need to write the code of the destination. Include in the email a discussion about the trade-offs between data overhead, processing time and security of your approach.

* More to come at http://www.pirate3d.com/career.

Benzinga is looking for a Django developer, a front end dev, and a Drupal dev either REMOTE or local full-time in Detroit, MI.

We're a financial media company, a poor man's - lest we say everyday man's - Bloomberg competitor, and a financial product SaaS all forged together into a powerful trident that is attacking the high seas of Wall Street in a relentless pursuit of transparency.

And conquer we shall! We've grown 100% quarter over quarter all last year. Our team has surged to 30+ people and the waves of revenue washed together to form a rushing roar with just one of our products going from nothing to $100k/month in just 9 months.

Being a media company we find our way into all kinds of cool stuff. Our office is furnished with things like a $3000 high-end bed that was sent to us to review. We got to talk to and get pictures with Warren Buffett and Lloyd Blankfein (CEO of Goldman Sachs) when they came to Detroit last week.

But, you interject, finance is one of the toughest startup seas to sail upon! The old boys club runs an ironclad ship with no visible decks for boarding. Avast! We've built a battering ram of a business in just a few short years that has pummeled its way deep into the heart of Wall Street. Old Ironsides has warmed itself to Benzinga and once a taste the thirst cannot be quenched.

We've recently became Microsoft's premier finance partner alongside 3 other companies, all worth over a billion dollars and established for years. As of this Christmas season we will be installed by default on 500 million desktops and tablets via Windows 8 Finance. No download necessary. That's right mateys, we're in the source code.

And if you happen to trade or invest yourself you'll find us inside almost all of the major brokerages in the US.

So, where do you fit in this rigging, you swashbuckling scalawag? Well, our team is crazy ambitious, motivated, and experienced with shaking shit up. If you know your tech, and want on deck this is the place to do it. Your exact technical background and language of choice doesn't matter as much as your motivation and your ability to adapt quickly. We are a young team and we're especially looking for sailors who've got some salt in their whiskers who can help us scale from millions to hundreds of millions.

Why be a ninja when you can be a pirate? This ship is forging a new course, send an email to dev-us@benzinga.com to board!

MaxSquare Inc.


New York City


MaxSquare is developing a suite of capabilities accessible through SMS, mobile apps or the web that allows local businesses to leverage what we call the "the local marketplace API". We believe there is a huge opportunity in developing a better way for local businesses to interact with their potential customers and vice versa.

We are well capitalized through angel investors and positioned to leverage several key strategic partnerships once the initial product offering has completed development.


We've currently in RAD mode developing our MVP. For our MVP, our backend is built in MySQL and a web2py framework for the application tier. The frontend app is built in Sencha Touch (that will eventually be wrapped in PhoneGap) that communicates with the backend with a RESTFUL api. The backend and API is being developed in-house while the front-end is currently being contracted out.

We are looking for our #2, #3, #4, and #5 technical hires.


We are located in an awesome private brownstone building that we have all to ourselves with a garden, kitchen, a nice break room, in a quiet neighborhood on the UES of New York. Mostly empty right now, with ample space to create an ideal work environment.

Founder title and meaningful equity stake.

Excellent health, dental and vision benefits.

Stocked fridge, free breakfasts, lunches, snacks, seamless & postmates in the office.

Flexible work hours, no counting vacation or sick days. Choice of MacBook Pro or 2xCinema Displays (or whatever equivalent you want).

Build/choose your ideal workstation!

No forced work environment or corporate culture: All we care about is building the product and nurturing a very hacker-friendly culture. We are 100% hacker owned and operated.

A business that puts solving the problems of our customers first. Our investors and team only care about one thing: Building the best product possible. We care about creating technology that keeps small local businesses in their neighborhoods. Because who wants to live in a world where every other building is a bank, megabrand or franchise?


A world-class engineer passionate about building beautiful and, more importantly, useful products using bleeding-edge technology.

Someone who thrives in a startup environment and wants to be involved in building a company from the ground up.

Someone who pays attention to details, a perfectionist who is driven and comfortable working with rapidly evolving products. You are proactive about improving our products and you are able to prototype and iterate quickly.


--- CTO

Our current CTO will be moving into the COO role. We are looking for candidates with a strong full stack pedigree in web and mobile app architecture and will be responsible for designing a scalable architecture, overseeing product development and providing technical leadership.

Compensation in the range of 100-200K.

--- Backend Engineer

Will be responsible for writing and maintaining the back-end.

Open to developers with expertise in any modern technology stack - as long as you can make a case for it.

Must be able to collaborate and work with frontend engineers

Being able to support and work with the current back-end framework in MySQL and web2py is a major plus.

Expertise or knowledge in machine learning and/or natural language processing a plus.

Must be comfortable writing lots of code.

Compensation in the range of 50-100K

--- Frontend Engineer

Must be able to work with the currently contracted devs to finish the MVP in Sencha Touch, and possibly for future releases while in transition to moving to a native mobile app.

Must have a high level of proficiency in either native iOS or native Android development. Proficiency in both is a plus.

Must have some level of proficiency in desktop web frameworks to support a future release for desktop web browsers.

Must be able to coordinate with our backend engineer, so some knowledge of back-end architecture and APIs is required.

An eye for and/or competency in UI/UX design a huge plus.

Must be comfortable writing lots of code.

Compensation in the range of 50-100K

--- UI/UX Designer

Will be responsible for evolving our brand as well as the product itself.

Will be responsible for conceptualizing and creating a distinctive and elegant UX, UI and style guide that will be used across our products.

Must have proficiency in Photoshop, Illustrator, or equivalent visual design tools.

Must be able to work with other developers to translate mockups into products, so some knowledge of front end markup code (HTML,CSS,JQUERY,etc.) is a plus or must be willing to learn.

Must have an eye for clean, beautiful, intuitive design that can translate basic AND complex solutions into fast and simple to user interfaces and user interactions.

Must understand that when it comes to UI, less is more.

Must be passionate about typography, icon design, color, imagery and graphic elements.

Must be passionate about the design of "everyday things".

Will have the unofficial title of Chief Design Officer and in charge of improving company aesthetics (stationary, letterheads, email templates, merchant collateral, business cards, office interior design/decorations).

CodeHS: Software Engineer in San Francisco

CodeHS is a site that helps teach computer science to beginners with a focus on working with high schools. We work with students and schools all over the US and all over the world. Make a big impact on a small team in an exciting space.

See more at http://codehs.com/jobs

We are a company with a social mission, and we believe that we can help make computer science more fun and accessible to high school students. If you are a programmer, but also consider yourself a teacher--or if you love coming up with creative ways to explain things--or if you want to work on a meaningful project instead of programming widgets at the widget factory--then send us an email. You can email me at jkeesh@codehs.com

We're a small team of 6 with funding and a business model and soon to be a lot bigger. We have a monthly team hackathon (and recently had one for 150 students and teachers at Facebook http://facebook.com/codehs ), and are always thinking of ways to make working more fun.

See what students and teachers say about CodeHS: http://codehs.com/testimonials

How We Start Teaching:

We start teaching programming with "Karel the Dog," a dog that lives in a grid world and only knows four commands: move, turnLeft, putBall and takeBall. We use karel to teach that computer science is about problem solving. We start in JavaScript, but use a thin teaching library because we believe in teaching concepts over syntax.

Try it out and let us know what you think at codehs.com.

Our site is built in python, django, JavaScript, and we're on ec2.

CodeHS was recently a winner at NBC's Education Nation and has been featured on the Today Show and a number of other places.

Thanks! Jeremy

We operate on the mentality of mutual trust for all of our projects. We have a flat team structure, and we expect everyones opinions when making decisions or brainstorming. The dev team has strong experience in web application development, distributed computing, machine learning and systems management. We love open source and have contributed to several projects including our own.

Publishers can earn more revenue from their existing audience, brands get guaranteed engagement on existing video, and players get a free way to access paid content. See a walkthrough (narrated by Zach, the CEO) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FV7lMxGMHaI

We're working on the delivery of live video streams from our own camera installations around the globe into an iPad app for children. Both the client part (iOS) and the video processing backend (Python/ffmpeg) are being actively developed in-house. We're currently looking for a Python developer and Video Streaming Engineer, both full-time in London. Our office is at TechHub, in the heart of the Silicon Roundabout, but we'll be moving to the new office in the same area very soon.

The usual job description blurb is at our landing page http://www.fountain-digital.com, just wanted to add that we're a well funded one year old company, with product prototype ready, now approaching first public release. It's nine of us, with five people located in London. These will be our first hires, so your influence on the end product is only limited by your own capacity.

As part of our mission to revitalize face-to-face play for the 21st century, Grasshopper NYC has created a beautiful interactive game table that has potential as a standalone product and business. We are now looking for a business co-founder and leader to unlock this potential.

Were looking for someone who knows the relevant entertainment markets (including both traditional at-home game consoles and the out-of-home entertainment market); is skilled at business and strategic planning; has experience getting integrated hardware/software products to wide distribution; can get us the right industry partners; can lead fundraising as needed; has executive management potential; and is generally a excellent person who is fun and inspiring to work with.

Our game table is being featured this month at IndieCade East, the annual independent games festival, at New Yorks Museum of the Moving Image. We think its both gorgeous and ergonomically unique, comfortably sitting up to 6 players with plenty of leg room. (Design has been led by a cutting-edge architecture firm headed by MIT/Harvard architecture professors.) Technically, its a smart combination of open-source and proprietary software, including our own game framework built on Unity3D. (The core table engineering was led by an MIT Media Lab expert in multi-touch tables.) Unlike many interactive tables, its cool and smooth to the touch and is seamless and spill-proof; having a cocktail or beer at the table is encouraged by design. We already have around a dozen games working on the table -- ranging in stage from alpha to polished, some our own, some from third-parties indie game developers.

In short, we think weve created a special product that enables a unique and wonderful face-to-face game experience -- bringing the best of digital technology into a fully present, truly social interaction. Now were looking for a co-founder to turn an exceptional product into an exceptional business.

Additional background: the founder and creative director of Grasshopper NYC is an MIT engineer with a track record of product and business innovation in new media, including high-level executive positions in business news and as as a product management director at Google. A blog post in Gamasutra, a leading games industry website, noted that Grasshopper NYC is being talked about as the coolest thing happening in the New York game industry at the moment.

Interested? Email Ien Cheng at ien@grasshoppernyc.com.

San Francisco - Mavenlink - http://mavenlink.com - http://mavengineering.com

Senior Web Application Developer

Mavenlink provides consultants, independent professionals, and services firms with a suite of simple, thoughtful tools to run their businesses profitably. Were replacing cumbersome and expensive business processes that are currently handled by a hodge-podge of Excel, aging competitors, and repetitive human tasks. Our users love us (and pay us) because we make consultants and their clients happier and more efficient at doing their jobs.

Our roadmap is clear, both due to strong relationships with our customers, and due to our founders experience in the services industry. With each month, we find our product moving further and further upmarket as it tackles increasing complexity and scale. Were looking for more smart people to help us build business software thats both powerful and easy to use.


Were looking for senior engineers who enjoy teaching and learning from others. You are passionate about writing maintainable, reusable, well-tested code. You enjoy pairing and applying TDD when appropriate. You dont shy away from diving into a large (but very well tested!) Rails application to refactor it into components and services. Youre excited to work on a team creating intuitive UIs in Backbone.Marionette and CoffeeScript, developing reusable JSON APIs, and extracting and releasing open source components.

Its hard to measure experience in years meaningfully, but you should have a strong background in Ruby and Ruby on Rails, as well as JavaScript and ideally CoffeeScript. Wed expect something on the order of 2-3 years of full-time Ruby experience.

Experience in the following would help you get up to speed and start committing on day one:

* RSpec and Jasmine

* CoffeeScript

* Sass and modular CSS

* Backbone / Backbone.Marionette

* API design

Benefits and Work Environment

* We offer competitive salary, benefits, equity, and a fun and casual work environment.

* Because we pair most of the time, we work regular, predictable hours, starting at 9:30am with a brief morning stand-up, and ending at 6pm. We wont ask you to stay late or work weekends except in truly exceptional situations. We care about work-life balance.

* We send interested employees to conferences to speak or just to learn. The whole 16 person engineering team has attended GoGaRuCo (Golden Gate Ruby Conference) here in San Francisco two years running, and weve given talks at a number of Ruby conferences.

* Our development workflow is a combination of pairing and soloing, with pull requests and code review.

* We use Pivotal Tracker to break down and estimate features and Travis for continuous integration of our test suite.

* Weve seen the benefits of test-driven, high-quality code first hand, and we know what happens when code spikes turn into production code and become unmaintainable. You will have full-buyin from the team to spend time testing and writing maintainable code.

* We always striving to have the most enjoyable and productive environment. We conduct periodic team retrospectives where we discuss whats working, whats not working, and how we can improve everyones experience.

* Were located in downtown San Francisco, two blocks from the Embarcadero BART.


Send your resum, GitHub profile, or other examples of your work to jobs@mavenlink.com

Ask us questions! We believe that you should always ask probing questions about a companys trajectory, funding, and plans when considering employment, especially at a startup. Please, ask us anything! We strive for operational transparency.

San Francisco ---> Hiring Sales Hackers (No Cold Calling -- Hunting for Deals in the 21st Century)

What's a sales hacker? Sales hackers have several personality traits: (1) First and foremost, you get a thrill from "the hunt" of selling, (2) you are extremely good at follow-up, (3) you are literate in technology (not necessarily a developer or anything, but you like becoming an advanced user of your tools, whether it's Gmail or Evernote -- and you follow the software industry), (4) you can't help but figure out ways to exploit systems for your gain, and (5) you understand enough about people to relate to them and you are good at asking pointed questions & listening (as well as persuasive pitching when the time is right)

About Us

We are the team behind Mokriya Craigslist. Time, Wall Street Journal, Mashable, Xconomy, and a slew of tech bloggers raved about it. Check it out. http://craigslist.mokriya.com/

We are a team of engineers, UX designers, and thinkers. We have worked for some of the hottest tech startups in Silicon Valley, including Path, MixPanel, Threadflip, SimpleGeo, SideCar, etc.

Google has us on a list of best mobile development teams in the country so we get calls from them too.

More Details

We are looking for strong people who we can build a team on top of. Our immediate functional need is for Sales Development (ie hunting for qualified leads to send to the closers on the team), but we are building leaders. If you join us now, there will be lots of room for professional and personal growth.

We have a unique technology stack that will help you automate much of the tedious parts of this job so you can focus on the important part - phone and in-person conversations where you can get to know the prospect.

* No cold calling

* Learn best practices used by the best B2B software sales organizations on the planet (Salesforce, Omniture, etc.)

Send a note to careers@mokriya.com (I'll see it, I'm Adam. Sunil & Pranil, the co-founders, will see it also). Say hi, tell us a bit about yourself. We'll be most excited if you can sell yourself in writing.

Look forward to hearing from you!

San Francisco, Thumbtack, Software Engineer

Thumbtack is a new way to hire local services, e.g. photographers, tutors, or home contractors. With millions of users and an active consumer base across the US, we're riding the proverbial rocketship with insane month-over-month growth figures. If you want to join a company that has ridiculous growth, opportunity, but also impact on the real world, Thumbtack might be a good choice.

Some things our users are saying: "I owe my business to you", "50% of my business is from Thumbtack", "I can work less and earn more with Thumbtack." We help small businesses build their client-base. And on the flip side of the marketplace, we help consumers find just the right person to do the job with minimal effort on their part.

H1B is great. :-)

We're a human-focused company: we brew beer, eat meals together (cooked by our in-house chef), and otherwise enjoy the usual startup perks in downtown SF. But we maintain a serious perspective about our software, engineering discipline, and experimental rigor.

If you're in SF, I'm happy to meet up for coffee: email chris @.

You should be familiar with the libraries so that you know the best ways to do things without re-inventing the wheel.

Flipboard, Palo Alto, CA

We're working on building the world's best personal magazine.

We're taking that mission literally: my team, this week, just shipped this http://gigaom.com/2014/01/29/flipboard-wants-to-tame-the-unr... so, right now, we're biting off big problems in structuring and organizing social media through algorithmic approaches, editorial talent, social curation and striking design.

We're looking especially for Web engineering, systems/services, devops, building scaled machine learning pipelines, big data infrastructure, Android and iOS. And we need a great IT person, too. So, basically, everything.

You'll get: a competitive salary/equity package, a commute subsidy, an excellent healthcare plan, a 401k with company contributions, and big problems to solve. The company's ping-pong obsession is, over the last few weeks, in danger of being replaced by one with Street Fighter II. And lots of my colleagues have kids, including both the co-founders, so you can expect to get home in the evening in time to see them.

We've raised over $150m (http://www.crunchbase.com/company/flipboard), so we're going to be around for the long haul.

Apply here: http://jobvite.com/m?3NI5egwz and please feel free to email me with any questions you have at andrew at flipboard.com.

The name comes the LXC technology (Linux Containers), and the technique is also known as "Lightweight Virtualization".

That's why we recently launched Docker (http://www.docker.io/), an Open Source tool enabling anyone to run those Linux Containers very easily. Containers boot 1000x faster than virtual machines; their disk and memory footprint are also much lower; and they work on virtually all current platforms (from physical servers to public cloud instances). We think that they are the future of virtualization, and will soon become ubiquitous.

Convinced? Then fork the repo on github (https://github.com/dotcloud/docker) and have a look at the code. Not convinced? Then check the website (http://www.docker.io/), which contains more details, demos, and screencasts. Excited about this? Then join our engineering team!

Your responsibilities will include:

- being a contributor to the Docker project, which means contributing patches, and reviewing and merging pull requests from the community;

- working on some server-side applications;participate in product discussions, influence the roadmap, and take ownership and responsibility over new projects to make them happen.

You can qualify if you...:

- can read and write Go code (because docker itself is in Go);

- can read and write Python code (because many tools and services built around Docker are in Python);

- are familiar with network protocols: the lower layers like IP, TCP, and UDP; and the higher layers like HTTP;

- have experience in scaling large applications;

- believe that writing unit and functional tests is important.

AMA Capital -- Palo Alto, CA. Full time. H1B okay.

AMA Capital trades billions of dollars per day in the foreign exchange markets.

We are all engineers, and we all do a little bit of everything, designing and implementing our own trading strategies and infrastructure. We are a very small team (I am curently the only employee) and aim to add one or two engineers who will focus on strategy and/or on infrastructure. No experience or specific knowledge of finance is required. However, you do need to be at least interested in financial markets and to be able to implement your strategies carefully in C++.

An example of an infrastructure project is designing and building a system for logging to non-volatile memory. We generate large logs that cover everything from prices to transaction data. NVDIMMs are a form of RAM that survives power loss, and such hardware has been on the horizon for a while, but it is just now becoming available to early adopters. Writes to NVDIMMs will be nearly instantaneous and immediately durable. This project will be to develop an NVDIMM-based system that simultaneously functions as a log, an IPC mechanism, and a searchable database for analysis. Making this work will involve a number of pieces: kernel drivers, CPU cache control, lock-free synchronization, a daemon to write everything back to long-term (i.e. less expensive) storage, and more. If this works well, we plan to open-source all the pieces.

Notting Hill, London, England, U.K.

Our web application is at the heart of our busy and successful e-commerce business; every day it serves millions of product images and handles hundreds of thousands of user visits, but we can and do update the live site with new code anytime we want - multiple times per day - without missing a beat. Our systems are written on the LAMP stack and deployed on Amazon Web Services; we are migrating to Symfony 2 as our MVC framework. Developers choose the tools that work best for them - for instance, at the moment we have a mix of Linux and Mac workstations in the team. We are adopting and adapting agile development techniques such as test-driven development, pair programming, and continuous integration. We hold regular retrospectives to improve our working environment and lightning talks to share cool ideas whether work-related or not. Our developers are generalizing specialists whose typical day may include refining an algorithm, writing a tricky integration test, tuning a SQL query, and discussing feature nuances with a product manager. Our team is growing fast and we'd like to hear (at careers@secretsales.com) from any of you who'd like to join us; we're hiring for all technical roles, especially developers of all levels of experience.

Established in London in July 2007, Secretsales.com is the UK's leading private shopping club, offering limited-time online sales with current name-brand goods at deep discounts. Brands include fashion, beauty, homeware, and lifestyle categories, many of them familiar from the high street.

Measurence - REMOTE (UTC-5 ~ UTC+5) - http://measurence.com

Hi! :) I'm Federico Feroldi, co-founder of Measurence. Our mission is to bring the power of lean analytics practices and tools to the brick & mortar retailers (think about MixPanel and Optimizely for the real world).

We're very early stage, but with a working product, enough seed funding, some excited customers and a few very important prospects.

This is not our first startup. As founders together have almost 30 years of combined tech and business experience with a few startups and exits already under our belt.

Your responsibility will be to build the front end app of our analytics platform using Rails and AngularJS. The backend system (data ingestion and analysis) is built on Scala, so there's a chance for you to learn it if you want :)

This is a fully remote position. You'll be able to work from (almost) anywhere you want and organize you working hours as long as you deliver stuff and bring the product closer to the vision that were going to shape together.

You'll not be told what to do. We'll, instead discuss together what needs to happen then you'll decide what and how to do to make it happen. You'll need to be comfortable with the uncertainty that characterizes the early stage of a startup.

We value honesty, transparency and direct communication.

If you're interested to discuss more, tell me your story and show me what you built at fferoldi - at - measurence.com

Strong CS basics in data structures and algorithms. Strong engineering;thoughtful design and clean code. Graphics, browser, games, or animationexperience a big plus.

A front-end engineer that has a strong computer science background, but wantsto focus on product engineering rather than backend systems. You dont want tojust take off the shelf UI components, but want to explore new interactions.You arent afraid to dig under the hood of iOS frameworks or browser code inorder to make an animation or interaction feel natural and smooth.

Backend Engineer at Prismatic:http://boards.greenhouse.io/prismatic/jobs/5976

Prismatic is a great place to be a backend engineer - we analyze millions ofshared web pages every day, automatically classify them into tens of thousandsof topics, and serve up personalized feeds in real-time using our homegrown,lightning fast, machine learning-based relevance engine. We are looking togrow our top-notch team, with both junior and senior-level positions available.

We are looking for engineers with deep interest and knowledge in at least one area core to our business (i.e., distributed systems, ops and tooling, machinelearning, designing and building new product features). Were a small team, soyou will have the opportunity to have a lot of impact, and to learn from peerswho are extremely talented engineers, computer scientists, and data experts.Our backend is written entirely in Clojure, a JVM-based LISP that is a dream towork in. Almost none of us knew it before we joined, and we dont expect you toeither. We do, however, expect the following:

- You live and die by good abstractions. You know that they can make the difference between easily understandable and maintainable code, and a spaghetti mess.- You think about edge cases and performance implications, and anticipate future needs.- You read and understand existing code before diving in and adding your own. You re-use existing code whenever possible, cleaning it up as needed to be more generally useful.- You know when to do it fast, when to do it right, and how to find the best compromise between the two.- You recognize that we are all stewards of the codebase, not owners. You leave code better than you found it, and you fix bugs without grumbling about whose they are.- You are a team player who enjoys discussing ideas and implementations with other engineers.

Heres a small sampling of the things you will be working on as a member of the Prismatic backend team:

- Making our crawlers and document analysis better and more comprehensive- Building out new product features in our API - Solving tough systems problems to help us scale reliably and robustly- Building and improving Machine Learning systems for ranking, document analysis, and more- Creating tools to assist development and ops - Shipping some of the best open-source Clojure libraries out there, and working with the community to make them better

Qubit - London (+ New York web devs)

Qubit has just had our 4th birthday, and we're looking to really grow our engineering team (somewhat) internationally, as we expand out into new markers!

There's a bunch of jobs listed here: http://www.qubitproducts.com/jobs, but to summarise, we are hiring on the front-end from UX architects to both new and experienced full-stacky-JS engineers and in our infrastructure teams for DevOps folk. Also, if you find http://xkcd.com/1132 funny, we want you as well!

It's a really fun environment - not just because of the perks of working in the middle of Soho with our own newly remodelled (and fully stocked) kitchen - but we've put together an inspirational team across the board, and we're building a personalisation platform that is really resonating with some of the biggest brands in the world. Not only that, but we have huge plans about where we are going to take it!

It's a really exciting time, and I hope some of you will join us! There's tonnes of big technical and "soft" problems that we're tackling, so drop us a line at careers+hackernews@qubitproducts.com, tell us a bit about yourself and we'd love to have a chat about how you can help us solve them.

Ruby Engineer

The last 50 years have seen the reinvention of almost every major industry except for one: Trucking. Intrans is here to change that. We've deployed the world's first mobile platform for on-demand freight shipping.

Over 30 billion dollars a month is spent on trucking freight around the US. Without trucks, the country would grind to a halt overnight. In such a massive market, it's hard to believe that the entire industry still runs on landlines and fax machines. We are changing that by using location-based technology to automatically match supply and demand.

We're a team of 10 and have been around for over two years. We're growing quickly and looking for a Ruby engineer to join us.

If you're ready to be part of this industrial transformation, send your resume and GitHub profile to sean@intrans.com.

Tictail (http://tictail.com) Stockholm, Sweden.

Tictail is the easiest way to start an online store. We're home for 35000 stores and plan to grow 3x over the next year. We care deeply about user experience and want to make e-commerce as accessible as starting a blog. As a result, more than 80% of our store owners have recommended Tictail. We've also recently launched Tictail Apps, a platform for third-party developers to make apps for Tictail stores.

We're currently 7 people in the tech team and we're looking to hire a few more talented engineers with a good product sense. The platform is mostly written in Python and production is currently served by Tornado, Flask and node.js. Our infrastructure is built on AWS and we use Chef for configuration management. Search is currently powered by Solr but we will soon be migrating to Elasticsearch.

Here's a somewhat outdated blog post from Siavash, our CTO, describing the position in more detail: http://blog.tictail.com/post/45182662726/backend-developer-o...

If you're interested, get in touch at jobs+hn@tictail.com and tell us a few things about yourself and a project you've enjoyed working on. Tack!

Seeking Technical Co-Founder for Nonprofit Startup

We are an exciting nonprofit seeking to make the world a better place by connecting international travelers with daylong volunteering opportunities in order to bring more resources to vetted nonprofit organizations around the world.

We believe that by re-engineering international volunteering and making it open to micro-contributions we can create new revenue streams for worthy nonprofit organizations and increase awareness of global issues across a wide demographic of travelers.

We have been working on this project since August 2012 and we incorporated in July 2013. We have laid legal groundwork (applied for 501c3 and have temporary fiscal sponsor), have considerable traction with fundraising, partner organizations (6 confirmed, 6 in the works), and a few initial pilot users.

We have one full-time co-founder and two part-time co-founders - none are technical. We are seeking a technical co-founder to lead our technical strategy (including but not limited to crowdfunding and social engagement), to take on projects (including but not limited to web development and CRM), and to to be a decision-making member of our core team. Web Development experience required.

The ideal candidate can contribute 8-10 hours per week, but would be able to go full time if we are admitted into a incubator program (we plan to apply to 3+ programs this year). No compensation is currently available, but is negotiable pending funding.

We are striving to create an organizational culture that values innovation, transparency, and integrity. We are a fun core group with a dynamic extended community of volunteers and supporters.

A passion for making the world a better place and engaging global issues is essential.

Folsom Labs, San Francisco, Full Time (www.folsomlabs.com)

Basically, if you are interested in science and/or energy, and want to do software engineering at a place that actually let's you leverage the math/physics you learned in college/grad school, we're probably as good a fit as you'll find. We make powerful design tools for Solar PV systems, making them very easy to use by leveraging a pretty sophisticated simulation engine (so we handle the physics for the user).

We've already launched our product[1], have some great traction (including a federal grant), and we're still just a 2 man team, so there's a lot of opportunity. Everyday we get to deal with a range of problems that few startups get to offer we have a pretty modern web-stack [2] (that we actually need, not just to be trendy), but also get to solve interesting physics/optimization problems on a regular basis. It's a really unique place in both the solar industry, and as a software company.

San Francisco - Heyday - http://hey.co

We are building a lifelog for people to remember and share the story of their lives, automatically, beautifully, and privately. Two months ago, we launched here on Hacker News [ https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=6858373 ]. Here's what some of you guys said:

- "Wow. I rarely download this stuff. But the fact that it claims to be automatic piqued my interest. After downloading it I can say that my first impression is shocked. Shocked that I really liked it."

- "This is very well done. This could crush Facebook. Not in the short term but if you create a timeline that is more personally valuable to people they will be far more likely to use it and share it with friends and family. Your timeline is already far more interesting then my "Wall."

- "Why is it free? I would've paid for this."

- "I have been looking for this. I've been so desperate for this I've been contemplating creating it myself."

We're looking for mobile engineers (iOS - hard problems include making our sync engine fast/reliable, fast/intuitive search for memories, surfacing important memories in the background, UI performance, and doing it all without using a lot of battery), systems engineers (Python, Devops, Puppet/Chef - hard problems include delivering accurate geocoding for memories, reliable syncing, and building systems to monitor and scale all of it automatically), and data scientists (R/Matlab/SPSS, Python, SQL, statistics, machine learning - hard problems include using ML to improve accuracy of geocoding, building growth and retention models, all while guaranteeing user anonymity and privacy).

We will fly you out for interviews and relocate you to San Francisco if you aren't here already. A lot of our team work remotely from time to time, but we haven't found full time remote employees to work out well for us since we collaborate so closely together in real time.

Please email me directly at siqi at hey dot co (8 hour SLA for a response). I'm also happy to answer questions here.

Fun fact: 33% of our engineering team found us through Whos Hiring threads here.

Chicago, IL - DevOps and Build Automation Engineer @ Spantree - http://www.spantree.net


Systems Management: Vagrant, Puppet, AWS

Build Automation/CI: Gradle, Grunt, Jenkins, Sonar, Maven, Cordova

Test Automation: JUnit/Spock, Selenium, Mocha.js

Web Tier: Java 7, Nginx, Tomcat, Jetty, JBoss, Grails, Redis, RabbitMQ, Node.js, Varnish

Data stores: MongoDB, Elasticsearch, Postgres, Redis, Couchbase, Neo4J


Spantree is a boutique software engineering firm based (mostly) in Chicago. We're looking for our very first DevOps engineer to join our team in the West Loop.

This candidate should enjoy learning new technologies and solving hard problems. Ideally, we're looking for someone that can whip or systems engineering stack into shape, taking over cross-cutting systems work that we each handle on our individual projects. Our existing team of 7 are mostly programmers. We've had to learn tools such as Vagrant, Puppet and AWS to make our lives easier, but we're growing to the point where we could really use someone who lives and breathes this stuff.

We work quite a bit with OSS and we're not shy about jumping into other people's code to figure things out. We constantly hunt for smarter ways to do things, so we're often experimenting with emerging tech with little or no documentation. You should be motivated to submit pull requests and hunt down project committers on Twitter and IRC when you're stuck.


Who are you?


* A nice person

* An effective communicator face-to-face, on the phone, and over the web

* A pragmatic engineer that can quickly go from problem to solution to working software

* A lazy programmer who leverages test, build, and deployment automation wherever possible

* An confident teacher of what you know and a humble student of what you don't

* An altruist who wants to participate in open-source projects


What do we work on?


Our clients range from small and scrappy startups to large enterprise companies. We have 3-7 projects going at any point in time. We tend to focus on greenfield development, building web applications from the ground up. We also work on integrating the old with the new, bringing technologies like Elasticsearch, Grails and Drools to large companies. Helping people make better decisions is the central theme of most of our projects. This can take the form of a search engine to help people find interesting stuff to do on a Saturday night, a complex rules-oriented workflow management system for evaluating health insurance claims, helping people find the right doctor, or a matchmaking and scheduling system to help people book face-to-face meetings at conferences.In the next year or two, we also plan to get into product development, taking our experiences solving the same sort of problems for multiple clients and rolling them into a generic framework which we plan to open source and support directly for our clients and the rest of the world.


We offer full health, vision and dental for our full-time employees. 401K. Free snacks and often free lunches as well. Big monitors and top-of-the-line equipment. We also have a shiny new office treadmill.

Drop us a line at jobs@spantree.net and tell us a bit about yourself. If you have a resume or CV, feel free to pass that along as well. Github and LinkedIn profiles are also helpful. We're looking forward to hearing from you!

Expensify-San Francisco, CA-Fulltime, Programmer ExtraordinaireHey there! Allow us to introduce ourselves. We are Expensify and we do "expense reports that don't suck!" (Google "expensify" to read more.) We're getting crushed under an ever-growing pile of super awesome work, and I need one bright soul to help us dig our way out. I can guarantee you fun, an amazing opportunity to learn, and the siren's call of distant riches. But only if you are all of the following:

- An incredibly hard worker, even when it's not so fun. There is a ton of work to do, and a lot of it downright sucks. After all we do the sucky work so our customers won't need to. I need you to buck up and grind through server logs, user emails, source code, and bug reports, without complaint or supervision, and come back asking for more.

- A cool person to be with. Not a crazy party animal, just someone we can trust, rely upon, hang out with, bounce ideas off of, and generally interact with in a positive way, both personally and professionally. In fact, this is one of the most stringent requirements we have: would you be fun to hang out with day and night on some remote, exotic beach? This isn't a rhetorical question, either: every year we take the company overseas for a month (on your own dime, sorry) and work incredibly hard while having a ton of fun. We've done Thailand, Mexico, India, Turkey, Croatia and the Philippines. Where do you want to go next?

- Super talented, in a general way. We're going to throw a ton of work at you of every possible sort, and you need that magic skill of being able to figure it out even if you have no idea where to start. On any given day you might bounce between super low-level coding, super high-level technical support, marketing-driven data-mining, updating our user documentation, inventing/designing/building some new feature, etc. This is not a code monkey job you're going to be a full participant in the process, and you need to bring your own unique blend of skills to the table.

- Specifically talented in a programming way. You can instantly visualize solutions to problems big and small. Your code is always clean, well commented, has good nomenclature and indentation. You can switch on a dime between C++, PHP, Bash, Cron, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Dwoo, SQL not because you know them all, but because you're the sort of person who can just pick it up and figure it out. If you're this sort of person, you'll know what I mean. If not, then this position isn't for you.

And there are a bunch more, but odds are if you got this far, nothing I can do would stop you from applying. That's a problem because while I know you are awesome, it's actually really hard and time consuming to find you in the midst of the literally hundreds of other applications I get from everyone else. So this is where I'm going to ask my first favor: can you make it really easy and obvious how great you are, so I don't accidentally overlook you?

There are probably many ways to do that. But the easiest way to do that is to check out we.are.expensify.com and send in an application(which you can find at https://we.are.expensify.com/apply).We are excited to hear from you!

We take a pragmatic and practical approach to our stacks using proven components and building our own logic and complexity on top of well understood building blocks. This is a large, well built setup with consistent hardware, configs, monitoring, backups, and tuning in place.

Big Data/Distributed Systems Software Engineer

AppMonsta - REMOTE

AppMonsta collects massive amounts of data about mobile apps and turns it into actionable metrics for a wide variety of business customers ranging from investors to health care companies to startups. We really love data, building distributed systems, and helping people understand complicated market dynamics through our data.

We're looking for a distributed systems/big data software engineer to join our distributed team. You'll take ownership of our crawl & data pipeline, keeping them running with high uptime, scaling them up to handle load, and adding new data sources and new features to help our customers make even better decisions. Experience with distributed systems and/or big data is a huge bonus - we're looking for people that have a good intuition about what good architecture looks like, and who can grow into leadership roles.

Our current tech stack is mostly Python, Linux, AWS (EC2, S3, & EMR mostly), MongoDB, Celery and Redis. If you haven't worked with individual pieces of this before it's fine - we like working with smart people that are comfortable working in a distributed systems/big data/cloud environment. We're happy to help you get up to speed with anything you haven't seen before. We practice peer code review and continuous deployment on all our code and systems.

Our entire team works remotely. We're very flexible about where and when you work, as long as you ship code, keep systems online, and are reachable by other team members for part of the day. We stay in touch via a team chatroom and weekly team video chats, with impromptu 1-on-1 video chats whenever there's a detailed issue to discuss. To make this work, you'll need to be in a compatible timezone (between PDT(UTC-08) and CET(UTC+1)), and be very fluent writing and speaking English. Like getting out of the house to work? Ask about our mobile Internet subsidy:)

This is a full time, longterm opportunity. If this sounds exciting, send us an email at jobs@appmonsta.com, and we can get the conversation started.

San Francisco (relocation possible) - HouseCanary -http://housecanary.com

Looking for UX/UI designer and Frontend Developer

Over the past year we brought together real estate experts, economists, and Statistics PhDs to build a big data platform to accurately forecast real estate values up to 36 months into the future for all 381 US counties (MSA's) and 25,000 major zip codes. We forecast at this level as real estate truly is local, and weve found there are huge differences in how markets move between zip codes in a county. Our forecasts have over 90% accuracy forecasting housing prices up to 3 years out for most US real estate markets. We have back-tested these models for accuracy over the past 40 years, so that we can have confidence in calling the major market turns, and also understand where we are in the cycle and the likely future returns.

We are currently working with sophisticated institutions such as homebuilders, land investors, mortgage banks, etc. to use these forecasts.

We will be building housecanary.com into a full consumer oriented website in early 2014. We want to provide property owners in the US with a simple and accurate forecast for what is likely to happen to their home's value over the next few years (at a zip code level), given that a home represents most people's single largest investment in life. There are many people who want to better understand and plan for future price swings, similar to how they manage the rest of their financial assets, however currently, there is insufficient information available to consumers. We can now provide 80M US households with powerful data/forecasts only the largest banks and hedge funds had access to historically.

Positions available:

UI/UX Designer - Our ideal designer will be able to build beautiful and simple web sites, help out with product design and implement the designs in HTML and CSS. However being able to code is not required, just a huge plus. Were building very data driven products, so experience working on analytic heavy sites is also a plus.

Frontend developer - Our frontend is compiled statically (hosted on s3 and cloudfront) and all data is pulled via angular from our API. Our graphs are built using d3.js, we use SASS as our css preprocessor and grunt for our builds and deployment. Our ideal frontend developer will have prior experience with angular and prior experience building out analytic driven sites

Were a small but growing team, so your work will have large impact of the future success of the company. And as one of our first hires you will rewarded with meaningful equity in the company.

We have an office in the SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco. We cover health, dental and vision for all of our employees. Please note, were currently only looking to hire people who are located in the US or have US work authorization.

If interested please email joey@housecanary.com

London, UK. REMOTE partly okay, but some meetings in London required. Part time 3/4 days a week also a possibility.

Wildfish - http://wildfish.com

We're a London based consultancy, working exclusively with Django. Thus far it's just been myself and a collective of freelancers, for some 13 years now, but now I'm looking to put together a permanent team to take things to the next level, maybe starting with you :).

As the first permanent developer besides me (also a Django specialist) you'll get a chance to help shape how we do pretty much everything. Most of the day to day will be working on developing and maintaining new and existing client web apps and sites, but there'll also be time for our own product ideas, as well as open source work and blog posts.

Everything's results focused. As such you'll be free to work from home as much as you want, meeting up occasionally, so long as things get done and the clients are happy.

Some of the things we use, which it would be good for you to know some of:

- Python/Django [Essential]

- HTML/CSS/Javascript [Essential]

- Twitter Bootstrap

- Git / Github

- PostgreSQL

- Ubuntu Linux Server Administration

- TDD, django-webtest

- Jenkins, django-jenkins

- Salt, Linode

I'm imagining I'm looking for someone who has at least 2 years of Django experience, experience in an agency/consultancy environment would be a bonus, but if you can demonstrate that you know your stuff, for example with open source contributions, or code examples, then that's fine too.

You'll be working autonomously a fair bit, so it's important that you're the sort of person who has attention to detail and can read requirements carefully.

Would also be open to considering either part time work, or possibly part equity, please mention when getting in touch if any of these are of interest. Also let me know what sort of money you're looking for. Please mail work@wildfish.com.

Thanks :)

Iterable (http://iterable.com) - San Francisco, CA

Come join Iterable, the next generation email optimization company. Email usage is changing, but the technology and capabilities haven't caught up to the 21st century.

We're a small team of hackers and thinkers who are creating the next generation email optimization platform. Our team has experience at big tech companies (Twitter, Google) and we want to bring and improve the technology that powers user growth and commerce at these places to everyone. This means writing code that improves the lives of our customers (series seed and series A companies) and their millions of email subscribers. One of our top level goals is to build a uniquely fun and growth oriented company culture. This is a journey, not a rat race.

Knowledge sharing in any capacity is highly valued here -- are you interested in prediction markets or PGP encryption? Do you enjoy teaching posture techniques or purely functional data structures to others? We pair program, design together, and generally create a learn-and-teach environment here.

If you're interested in coming on board, you can help with some challenges we face:- Scale our API to beyond millions of requests - Design and write performant, beautiful interfaces - Write software to build machine learned user models - Make data visualizations for our email and user data - Design an immutable infrastructure for our platform

Some aspects of our culture that make us different: - We are all very focused on self improvement - Our company has egalitarian and transparent values: work when you want, on what you want. - We are chill and empathetic people - The company is completely transparent

You'll get to work with us at our office at Kleiner Perkins' startup incubation space in SoMa. If this sounds like an interesting opportunity for you, please email us:YW5kcmV3QGl0ZXJhYmxlLmNvbQ==

Our team handles two distinct pieces of bike share operations: the customer-facing sites for each of our cities (like www.citibikenyc.com) and internal tools that help our staff with their work in the day-to-day running of a bike share system (like our rebalancers, mechanics, dispatch, etc). Our technology stack is mostly PHP right now, though at least one of our internal APIs is written in Ruby, and I'd be open to arguments for moving languages / stacks. Looking for a full-stack web developer, but really I'm just looking for someone who is excited about both software and bike share.

WorkMeIn - Nashville, TN (http://workmein.com)

We got rejected from YC. But by Q4 our software will be facilitating patient referrals for 200+ hospitals (seriously)

Come be the first hire - a full stack engineer who might take on the role of CTO as the company grows. We use a fairly standard Rails stack (rails, postgres, redis, capistrano, git, ec2, etc.) plus some other cool things like Mirth Connect.


Why is WorkMeIn a great place to work?

If you're interested in, or have experience in healthcare, WorkMeIn is the place to be. We share a top floor office (sweet pic: http://imgur.com/ag8yiza) in downtown Nashville with an $800MM VC fund headed by the former CEO of Vanderbilt Medical. Come work with us, and the former Vanderbilt Medical CIO will knuckle bump you every day (again, seriously).

We are well funded, already profitable (not just the ramen kind either), and have large enterprise customers.


WorkMeIn's goal is to dramatically increase the efficiency of care coordination between healthcare providers. Our software increases the efficiency of primary care physicians, provides specialist physicians with a better patient mix, and allows insurance companies and healthcare systems to help ensure patients stay in network. As a result, patients get higher quality, more affordable, more appropriate care with better outcomes.

I would love to hear from you whether you're interested in joining us (awesome!) or just want to chat. Shoot me a message at jon@workmein.com or @jongautsch

Dstillery - NYC, New York

Dstillery is hiring Backend and Full-stack Software Engineers!

We're #10 on Crain's Best Places to Work in NYC list, #47 on Forbes' America's Most Promising Companies list. We play Ultimate or Soccer on Fridays, we have a company band, we work sane hours, we don't track vacation (and not in the 'so nobody ever takes any' sense), and we Get Stuff Done.

You'll learn a lot from working here, regardless of your current level of experience. You'll work directly with a world-class data science team (winners of multiple KDD Best Paper and other awards) that keeps us on the cutting edge of learning at scale, allowing us to build customer-specific models from billions of events per day. We're hooked up to all the big ad exchanges, and have direct working relationships with companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, and more. But we're also still pretty small on the engineering team, and everyone gets their hands dirty and makes a real impact.

We write mostly Java. Hadoop, Cassandra, Mongo, and Kafka are big parts of our stack, and we're always looking for new tech that helps us work at scale. Experience with these is a big plus, but if you've never used them before that's fine too, if you're eager to learn. If you write clean, working code, think through problems, and deliver on time, we want to talk to you.

Contact me for more info, jason@dstillery.com

REMOTE, whereever

DataStax makes the enterprise edition of Cassandra, the NoSQL db for serious applications. We have developers all over the world and a 100% remote working environment. Some of the development is open source (we are the primary contributors to Cassandra core, which is an Apache Foundation project...)

I just joined recently; as a senior developer with startup experience, I had lots of offers from various companies. The reasons I chose DataStax were:

- 100% remote means I can work from whereever I want (I like to travel) and whenever, within reason, as long as I get my stuff done - the opportunity to work on interesting new technology that is rapidly changing and being adopted by a lot of Fortune 100, etc - they have been vocal about their plans to IPO in the next few years and are growing like crazy

Very competitive salary, lots of open positions: Java, Python, JS, I've even seen some Clojure. Also, SDET and technical writing.


Hit me up, esmith at datastax dot com, if you'd like an intro.

That said, if people want to comment on something but don't think it's worth upvoting, maybe it really doesn't belong on the front page.

Venturing a guess: We're all stuck somewhere between hacker and entrepreneur, and out of nowhere this guy makes a game that explodes. Then, almost as quickly, he pulls it. So we're one part jealous that he was able to do what we're all trying to do (I'd love to make $50k a day), and one part confused as to why he wouldn't want it. I mean, it's counterintuitive to the overwhelmingly popular goal of building something, selling it, and starting over again.

The app is making $50k/day, and the author is taking it down because he doesn't like the press attention. Taking down your app because it's too popular is unusual, and suddenly you won't be able to download one of the most popular games.

cryptolect 1 day ago 0 replies      
I think much of the audience of HN is surprised that something so rough and unpolished could be so successful. A popular assumption is that you need to professionally use modern technologies to standout and be successful. Flappy Bird shows that in this segment (mobile gaming), it just has to be fun. Nobody really cares if it's rough around the edges, especially when it's free.

I think the open question is whether 'unpolished but delivers the MVP' will "fly" in other markets? I think a takeaway from the whole Flappy Bird saga is that delivering on the MVP is what matters, not necessarily how polished it is. Flappy Bird simply had a lot more latitude to be unpolished due to cost and what it was promising. Experienced developers are left shaking their heads wondering "they hit top of the charts with THAT?"

Move up the value chain.

If you can turn a design into code, learn to turn a spec into a design.

If you can turn a spec into a design, learn how to understand a problem and produce a spec to solve it.

If you can understand a problem, learn to talk to people and discover the problems they have so you can solve them for them.

If you can do that, learn a million other things and run your own business.

[You can also skip any of these steps if you're happy managing people to fill in the downstream aspects rather than doing it yourself.]

This is not a wise strategy.

Technologies go through cycles - PHP was hot in 2006, Ruby peaked in 2010, Javascript (and Node.js) is currently hot, and it's quite possible that Go will be hot in 2-3 years.

It's foolish to learn a language under the assumption that it will be relevant for 10 years. If you asked this question in the early 2000s, PHP would be the answer, not Javascript.

The best strategy is to continuously brush up on skills. Experiment and dabble with new languages and frameworks as often as your time allows!

Peak jobs for a technology happens several years after the technology peak. To give an example -- Rails is definitely uncool in 2014, yet there are far more Rails jobs available now than there were while Rails was cool (<2010).

So if you're looking for a job now, stop listening to hipsters and start looking at want ads.

Any "cool" technology today is going to take 5 years to have a significant impact on the want ads. You can try and pick one, and if you get lucky you'll be one of the few to be able to check the "5 years experience" box in 5 years time and be in a position to choose your own salary.

However, your chances of choosing it are slim -- many more technology choices wither and die than succeed.

My advice: when you have a problem, solve it with the best stack for the problem. Winners are chosen because they're good at solving problems.

You chose Javascript. Javascript's a good choice and a bad one. It's hot right now and shows few signs of diminishing. But there are lots of people who can write "10 years experience in Javascript" on their resume, and many of those aren't all that good in Javascript. It doesn't take long to pick up a language like Javascript, but it takes longer to pick up an entire ecosystem. So knowledgeable employers will be looking for experience in the ecosystem, not just Javascript. In Javascript, there are several of those; jQuery, node, angular, backbone are some of the largest but there are lots more. Some will be big in 5 years, some will be forgotten.

IMO, the Javascript/HTML ecosystem that's seems most likely to be much larger in 5 years than it is now is Web Components. It may or may not be polymer.js, but that's a good place to start. If a competitor to polymer.js "wins" Web Components, then polymer.js will at least give you a large running head start. But that's just my opinion, and it's not going to be useful for a while.

If you're going to be job hunting soon, angular may be your best choice. It appears to have reached "escape velocity", and is starting to be adopted in places that actually hire people. It may or may not be uncool soon, but demand should handily outstrip supply for a few years.

The .NET framework[0] is always useful and I think it's here to stay for a long while. You'd be able to write mobile apps using Xamarin or business apps for Windows. Also apps for the new Ubuntu mobile OS will be possible.

Personally I find Go[1] interesting and it's something I'm hoping to pick up in the coming year. It seems like a fun language, well suited for building web services that handle lots of traffic.

Lua[2] might also be nice to learn. It's used for scripting in a lot of games. For example: in World of Warcraft you can create your own Lua add-ons. Lua can be easily integrated into your own apps / games, since it's just a small C library. It might be a good language to learn if gaming interests you, since lots of games make use of Lua in some way.

And as someone else already mentioned in this thread: functional programming will become bigger in the future. You can use the functional programming style with .NET if you choose to learn the F# language.

For what purpose? Employability, intellectual well-roundedness, zeitgeistiness? Each of these could pull you in a different direction.

My current hunch is that statistics/data science/machine learning will satisfy at least two of the above three, if not all.

I've been learning the basics of data analysis with R, much helped by the awesome RStudio. Initially this was for fun (and a tryout of MOOCs, specifically Coursera's data analysis class) but after only a few weeks I found occasion to use it at work (finding patterns in an application's response times in response to user load throughout the day).

Now I'm getting into stuff that's even more fun, specifically the reactive Web framework Shiny.

This is usually a sure sign of a good match between learner and subject matter: an iterative process where learning and applying, tightly interleaved, form a feedback loop.

jheriko 1 day ago 0 replies      
Learn how to decouple yourself from specific technologies. Underlying all programming languages is the 'pure' logic of programming itself and the theoretical stuff of computer science.

Things like algorithms and data structures are largely independent of language (although there are some 'exotic' things you can do in many of them).

I would however strongly suggest getting a strong background in cross platform C/C++ code. For a very long time this has been the only really practical way to write properly platform agnostic code and it still is... you'll need a bit of Java to glue it into Android, and a little Objective-C might help with iOS and OS X. It also lots of quirks due to being low-level enough and will give you a better understanding of why x is slow or difficult to implement in the general case rather than in just 'language and platform X'

Also, for the web make sure you understand HTML(5), CSS and JavaScript - aside from server side stuff these three things underpin everything on the web.

JavaScript is not the next big thing - its like a 101 requirement for serious web development imo...

I strongly advice against deeply following the next big thing too - check it out see what it is, learn about it a little, but don't go nuts. There is a chance that you will learn nothing of long term value from investigating it thoroughly.

Knowledge of APIs and standard libraries is something Google can provide for you these days... understanding never will be.

spion 1 day ago 1 reply      
Personally I'm preparing to bet on the following group: Haskell, Purescript, Idris - maybe Roy.

As the world realizes that they're relying on software for everything, and that a lot of it is horribly buggy, pure functional programming with typed languages is going to get a lot more popular.

This will likely be reinforced by the current JavaScript era, with some of its type coercion rules making absolutely no sense and object property access that happily accepts accessing nonexistent properties. Add all this talk about its functional parts being the best parts, and the logical progression seems obvious.

Additionally, just immutability by itself will make programming any kind of software much easier in the multicore era.

Regarding types, people will soon realize that these are not your grandmother's (dumb) strongly typed languages. They don't need you to spell out everything for them - they have extremely good type inference - someitmes to the point of feeling almost dynamic, but without sacrificing correctness.

There might be some issues with tooling and foreign-looking terminology at the present moment - but I'm confident they will be sorted out in the next couple of years.

But most importantly, its not just technical merits. People seem to be talking about functional programming a lot lately. Some of it is correct and some isn't, but that doesn't matter - the interest is growing there and I optimistically predict that the trend will continue.

Its probably too early to say whether types will become popular, but I certainly hope so. It sure would help if advocates for types distance themselves from Java and similar languages with little or no type inference. Many people have a lot of ill will accumulated for some of them and tend to blame the types for that. "Inferently typed" seems like a good buzzword for that.

Predictions are often horribly wrong, but they're also so much fun!

> What should I learn to stay relevant in the next 5 10 years?

Mathematics and algorithms not tied to any particular language. Avoid paying too much attention to the "next big thing", that's counterproductive.

The field of computer science is too fluid right now -- and for the foreseeable future -- to expect to be able to choose a language or environment that has any serious staying power.

For example, 10/20 years from now, everyone will have to learn how to write parallel algorithms to a degree not even imagined today, for lack of appropriate current hardware. That future is virtually certain, but there's no present way to even prepare for it.

solomatov 1 day ago 0 replies      
It's very hard to predict the future, but I think, there are things which are and will always be worth learning in software development world (however, they aren't enough to find a great job):

- Large scale programming languages(Java, C#, C++) and techniques. JavaScript is in fashion today, however, as web is replacing desktop apps we will have more and more capable and large scale applications. It won't be possible to develop them in JavaScript because of its lack of support for large scale development. All these languages have compiler to JS (and in future probably will have compilers to asm.js), and I think, they will replace JS in the future.

- Algorithms and data structures (It's very hard to find a person who can describe well how hash tables work. I interviewed many people who studied this at university).

- Programming language theory. It makes you better programmer, since you will have a better understanding of why languages are implemented the way they are.

- Mathematics which is relevant to software: discrete math, statistics (data science is on the rise now), mathematical logic. These skills are timeless

This part is more speculative (however, I personally bet on this stuff):

- Reactive libraries. They allow you to become so much productive. You can learn Reactive Extensions (https://rx.codeplex.com/) or one of its port to other languages. Also I can recommend you the framework which we developed at JetBrains: https://github.com/JetBrains/jetpad-mapper.

- Web platform. I mean WebGL, WebCL, WebWorkers, and other HTML5 APIs. The next generation of apps will be based on the web platform, and you need to be fluent in these APIs to be relevant.

- Emerging languages: Scala, Kotlin, Rust. Don't learn Go, that language is defective by design. Also don't learn Haskell, the language isn't widely used and if we take a language + popular extensions it's more complicated than C++. Haskell will probably be replaced by one of the dependently typed programming languages.

- Dependently typed programming language. Currently, they are mostly academic languages, however, they give us a promise of writing reliable software by construction without too much effort. The best language here is Agda. However, you might want to learn Coq or Idris.

Things you should stay away from:

- Do not learn dynamic languages unless you have to (for ex. JavaScript, I hate it, but I have to write code in it from time to time). Modern statically typed languages are so good now, that they give you almost all advantages of dynamic language while keeping code correct.

- Do not learn language which try to make themselves easier at the cost of correctness: Go (lack of generics) and Dart (optional unsound type system). I think they won't work out despite the fact that Google backs them.

Lots of suggestions about JS in this thread, which I disagree. I think we have currently very poor visibility how browser tech will evolve. If you look what Facebook is doing with React, it is obvious that the browser rendering pipeline will look very different 5-10 years from now. Also divergence of device UIs is going to continue - think Glass, watches, TV, car control and this will definitely affect web UI technologies too.

I've been a mobile UI developer for over 10 years. World of mobile looked very different 12 years ago. Technologies changes that fast that I wouldn't make career affecting predictions about tech for that long time span.

No one can predict what the landscape will look like in 5 - 10 years. My advice is to look at the tools being used in a field that interests you, and learn those. Technologies cycle in and out of popularity so you can never be sure what the 'next big thing' will be. But, it's never a waste of time if you learn something that you want to, and you'll be surprised at how often you'll find use cases for your new knowledge. Plus, from my experience, learning any new language/technology makes you better at what you already know - having a new perspective is a very valuable thing.

You're an iOS dev, so you're familiar with OOP. Why not learn a functional programming language like Erlang or Haskell? There's a lot of momentum behind FP right now, and both languages can solve problems in different ways than what you're probably used to.

WordPress (PHP, JS, SQL).

WordPress powers over 20% of the internet, is used by over half of the top 100 sites in the world, Fortune 500's use it, and the government uses it (i.e. http://www.data.gov). There are some stats here: http://en.wordpress.com/stats/ but these estimates are low because all sites aren't tracked.

Despite being around for over 10 years now, it's still growing rapidly. It's widely underestimated and often derided by other developers, but it's the most popular CMS in the world and evolving into an app framework. In the WordPress community devs are the minority, as most are designers, bloggers, hobbyists, or typical users.

Don't follow the stock market strategy of chasing the hot stocks, look at value. Remember last year when Apple's stock dipped into the $300's? That's how WordPress is: great fundamentals, massive loyal customers base, and highly undervalued.

5-10 years is a very long period. To me: JavaScript looks exciting, current trends clearly show the rise of JS.

However, just a decade ago, a large majority of Internet used JS primarily for form validation, which was sad. A lot of web developers were not comfortable leaving their code open for the visitors to see.

I personally believe JS will continue to soar but I also believe that nobody can answer this question perfectly as nobody knows the future.

In any case, if you spend a lot of time learning any language very well, the time required to learning another language after that, decreases substantially.

My meta-comment would be to avoid trying to find the-next-big-thing.

If it was easy to guess the next big thing everybody would do it ;-) A 5-10 year horizon is a very long time in computing years. Look back ten years. How many people were accurately guessing the current environment? How many of the big-things now even existed ten years ago?

When I look back at my career I can't point to a single instance of seeing the next-big-thing.

I can point to lots of great things that have happened because I'm continually poking at new ideas, new processes and new bits of tech. So I'm ready to take advantage when one of those does become the next-big-thing.

So yeah. Take a look at JavaScript and the node.js world. Or robotics. Or architecture as code - or whatever. But for god's sake don't bet your career on it in five years time. Explore lots of things. Find stuff you're good at and enjoy. Be ready for when one of those starts turning into the next big thing.

Learn basics - concepts of programming. 90% of developers use imperative (procedural) and structured (OOP) paradigms. But the world of the programming is not so close. There is a lot of other interesting and applicable paradigms, including declarative (functional and logic programming), metaprogramming, semantic, and many more.

Learning only programming language (PL) people are limited to scope of that language. Learning paradigms (better in terms of one of PL) you gain knowledges which are "portable" between PLs of the paradigm. You will have a boost when switching PL of the same paradigm: learn PL faster, looking into PL's features and not its basics.

I recommend to check out before you choose what to learn: Lisp dialects like Closure, CL, etc; Ruby; Go / Rust; Java.

I have been doing this stuff for 42 years. My advice - don't worry about the next big thing too much, it will become clear if you keep your eyes open. Avoid jumping on brand new bandwagons which might be going nowhere, but at the same time if something is clearly gaining momentum, get into it in your spare time.

For example I cut my OO teeth on Smalltalk in the 90s, but Java looked fun, so some colleagues an I built game applets in our spare time. I moved straight into a serious commercial Java job. I also played a little with Flash actionscript- got me nowhere, but fun nonetheless.

Javascript is a good thing thing to have in your kit bag today.

But to stay relevant for the next 42 years, learn how to learn.

I agree with a lot of things said in this thread, but my suggestion would be to focus on building relationships and seek out great people to work with. In 10 years, you'll have engineering experience AND be surrounded by talented, like-minded people. One caveat is, you have to be great yourself, because great people don't want to work with mediocre people. So really dig into whatever you're working on, try to impress yourself and try to have fun.

+1 for dirtyaura's "Learn to Ship" comment.

You should also learn a server side programming language with good performance(Java, C#, Go). I think Java is the best because it is mature, multi platform and you can also use it for Android programming.

Java(j2ee) is well paid and pretty safe for the next 10-20 years. Java will be the next mainframes. Even if you look at this thread, not many people want to do it, but there are hundreds of thousands java applications that need maintanance and updates and more are starting every year. And good java folks are in a very high demand.

But the irony is noone wants a pure java dev. It is implied you need to be good at html/css/js, have handson exp with at least 2 popular databases, different web/app servers, numerous frameworks and also very good admin skills. Not the shortest path to success.

Javascript is not going to be the next big thing, is already that and you should keep learning it as priority. In my case i am learning functional javascript and as a framework Reactjs because i like it component base system approach. Also keep in mind that is not about the language or framework is about what you can do with it. I suggest to learn programming with mathematics, regular expresions , etc. To be clear learn how to be language agnostic.

A slightly paradoxical advice: learn Objective-C. Learning of one thing never stops.

Suppose you're now top 5% iOS developer. 5 years later you'll probably be top 1%. That's cool.

I can see only one hugely improbable risk in doing this. If Apple goes down then Objective-C developers will be as valuable as toilet paper.

I don't think it helps a lot to suggest one specific technology, because nobody actually knows the future (what that next big thing will be).

Stay agile, aware, and receptive. Learn how to learn better. Don't wed yourself off for life to one technology, and don't grow stubborn. Be prepared to turn the ship, quickly, when it comes time. Learn JS today? Sure, I'd argue however that it's far more important that you're ready to alter your priorities when that Thing comes along and smashes whatever you think is important today.

PHP. With the fall of popularity you might think it will bleed to death but the opposite is true. There will be less good PHP programmers but millions of projects running PHP so tightly it is too expensive or of a hassle to rewrite.

PHP is the new Haskell and LISP in terms of legacy. 5 years, when everyone is getting trendy and NodeJS is as mainstream as finding it on free shared hosting, PHP will be powering a massive backlog of web applications which need maintenance.

I grew up playing the golden era of N64. I was solidly addicted (Ocarina, Mario, Golden Eye, and Mario Kart). I played a good deal of Civilization in late high school and early College, but as I got good at programming I started to play less and less.

My philosophy has morphed into seeing video games as a waste of my time. I could be building something, reading a good history book or novel, learning more about x in computer science, OR getting closer to my friends and family.

I have a friend who tells me that I need at least one trashy addiction in my life. For a while I thought his argument had some merit, but I just don't agree with him anymore. I feel most alive and happy when I'm pursuing activities that increase my understanding of the world, open my eyes to ideas I hadn't considered, or brings me closer to my friends and family. Maybe video games can be these things for other people, but not for me.

I uninstalled everything and made a conscious decision to grind by learning and living. Sure, I still zone out with video games from time to time but I start to get uncomfortable after an hour and stop, very casual. For me, I realised I was wasting my life and it was making me unhappy.

Ask HN: How to get a startup job in SF as a non-technical guy
5 points by armenarmen  1 day ago   13 comments top 6
gatsby 1 day ago 1 reply      
It really depends on your skills, but I'd think about sales and/or biz-dev positions. Why?

--Sales is a huge value-add to most companies (whether a five-person startup or a Fortune 500 co.). You're responsible for revenue, which is something that most companies will want lots of at some point or another.

--Because you're responsible for revenue, you can personally make lots of money. In SF, a good salesperson (even at a startup) can easily make $75-125k/yr in their first year or two. If you go to a larger company, have specialized experience, or are exceptional at sales, it's not uncommon to be making $150-200k+/yr after a couple years.

--Arguably, even more important than the financial benefits, you'll learn a ton about business. Even if you don't see yourself becoming a career salesperson, it's a great base to launch a career in operations, account management, strategic partnerships, revenue/sales management, or to become a CEO/COO/CRO of your own company someday. Sales is valuable because every company has to do it - whether pitching investors, negotiating a contract, selling SaaS products, partnering with other companies, etc. It's all sales on some level.

Feel free to email me if you'd like to discuss further. Happy to chat with any non-technical folks on HN about career options or opportunities. More info and my email is in my profile.

Good luck!

coralreef 1 day ago 1 reply      
I graduated with a degree in Business and looked for startup jobs a few years back. It is difficult because:

1) Startups generally don't hire "business" people. You'd have to have a very specific role like marketing or customer service or community management.

2) Following #1, startups won't hire you unless you have experience in those fields (or hard skills). Startups don't have the resources to train you, and will never let a complete noobie have reign over any of their program.

Unfortunately your skill set as you described it above falls short, because pretty much everyone says they have passion, and you lack hard skills.

My suggestion: starting gaining experience through your own small projects. Identify which field of work you specifically want to work in. Build a product or service, ship it, try to get it blog coverage or press, run a Facebook/Adword campaign and optimize it. Build a mailing list. Build a FB fan page following. You need to build a body of evidence you can show startups come hiring time. "These are the things I've done, and this is what I can do for you."

People (bloggers) always write about how startups should hire generalists, but in my opinion, it doesn't happen because startups are far more attracted to specialists whom they can shoehorn into generalist roles. Its less risky for them because that specialist has demonstrated depth of skill and competence, vs a generalist who shows less depth, but broader range.

Best of luck

Your post would have fit me pretty closely ~ 7 years ago. Personally, I got into tech by getting exposure to online advertising with a side project. This led to an internship and then a full-time job in advertising operations.

My advice: apply for entry-level roles in tech companies on a business/operations focused team. Hustle and learn something new every day. For me, that has meant launching side projects, learning Python, advanced Excel skills, reporting automation (VBA and Python), becoming an expert at the industry-standard ad servers, and learning how all the pieces of the online advertising ecosystem fit together.

Depending on your interests and current skillset, you may want to adjust your own path accordingly.

Feel free to reach out to me directly as I would love to help.

SEEKING WORK - SF Bay Area - Remote or Local - Long or Short Term Projects

I'm an expert at creating APIs and building client applications (browser-based and mobile apps) powered by APIs.

API Development - I've designed, built, and scaled APIs for many different application profiles, from large complex data models, event subscription architecture, high transaction volume (25K requests/second), to simple REST APIs. I have a lot of experience analyzing data models and use cases to determine API structure, architecture, and recommended implementation. I know the ins and outs of REST vs RPC, JSON vs XML, and hypermedia vs traditional. I've implemented APIs using Rails, Node.js, and Java platforms. Bottom line - if you need an API developed, I can take you through the process from start to finish.

Single-Page JS App Development - I've led development on multiple single-page JavaScript apps in both desktop and mobile environments. I have significant JavaScript experience and have built full applications from scratch using Backbone.js, Ember.js, and AngularJS. Recently I worked with Balanced Payments to build a web interface for their payments platform using Ember.js. The whole project is open source - check it out! https://github.com/balanced/balanced-dashboard

Mobile App Development - I've deployed multiple apps across iOS and Android platforms for phones and tablets. I'm experienced in both native (iOS, Android) and mobile cross-platform HTML (Sencha Touch, JQuery Mobile) development.

Traditional Web Development - While I've spent most of my time lately working on APIs and API-driven apps, I also have ten years of experience doing traditional server-side web development. If you need a Rails or Java generalist to build a product, augment your team or maintain existing code, get in touch!

1) Frontend / full stack web dev (HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP). I need someone with very solid frontend web dev skills... and are comfortable and happy working with Wordpress. Some of my client projects are big demanding challenges, some of them are just CMS sites. You should be cool with either.

2) Systems work and IT referrals. I'm increasingly encountering clients that require complicated environments - multiple nodes, load balancers etc and I'm relatively useless in this area. Skills in AWS, CDNs like Akamai etc. Might be just referrals, might hire you onto the occasional project depending on the budget / scope.

By day I'm a marketer and growth optimizer. But recently I've signed a book deal, and I would love to take more time to focus on it. So I'm looking for remote and freelance opportunities. The sort of work that's interesting and pays the bills, or if you're feeling unusually generous, the sort that keeps me in Teslas and Tom Ford.

I do: content, web and app copy, analysis, market research, customer lifecycle communications, voice, PR strategy, etc.

You need: copy that converts.

Please email me if interested: jonfnathanson @ gmail.com

SEEKING FREELANCER - Toronto, ON - Remote possible

Looking for a designer, with an immediate need for web UI/UX work.

We're working on an exciting project with tremendous potential in an unsexy, but niche space. We have paying customers in the pipeline, and now we need to deliver.

We need a designer to help with the overall look and feel of a web-based dashboard. The goal is to take lots of technical data, information, analytics, and controls and whittle them down into a well-presented dashboard.

There is potential for continuing work on this project, and others, branching into mobile app development as well.

I'm being intentionally vague, as I don't want to give out too many details publicly. Suffice it to say, it's exciting enough that I left a very well-known startup in the Bay Area to move to Toronto for this.

I'm looking for an A-level designer here that we could work with for the foreseeable future, so my standards are pretty high. Send me links to your past projects, portfolio, and Dribbble to xpatel [at] pulsecode [dot] ca.

P.S. Our current website is a poor signal for the kind of quality we're looking for, so don't hold that against us. It also will not help you figure out what the project is.

I'm an experienced software developer with a strong full-stack web background. I don't just build your app/site, I'll also help you put the concept together if need be, and I'm good at filling the blanks with underspecified projects.

Server-side (PHP, Ruby on Rails, Node.js), client-side (HTML5/CSS/JS), also C/C++, ObjectiveC (iOS and OS X development), Java, Ruby, Delphi and many other languages and technologies.

I offer scalability consulting for high-throughput web apps and can make MVPs very quickly.

My background is in working with advertising agencies and scientific companies, and I have a biosciences education as well.



By the way, I would love to do a project with or for a fellow HNer one day...

I do full stack web dev, with either Clojure or Ruby/Rails. I did Rails work full time for about the last year, and have been working in Clojure for my side projects for the last few years. I like writing clean, testable, composable, pure functions where possible in whatever language I happen to be working in. I can build a basic responsive UI with bootstrap, but I'm not much of a designer, and I'm decent at Javascript (and Clojurescript), but prefer backend work.

SEEKING FREELANCER - Remote (Anywhere)

I'm a designer looking for a Django or Rails developer to build v1.0 of an Analytics-based web app I've designed, documented, and built HTML templates for that are ready to go.

Budget for the whole project is low five figures, i.e. small, so I'm open to anyone, anywhere, with good availability over the next few months.

There's a smaller, more challenging component of the app that I'd also like help with, especially if you have experience with the Google Analytics API. If this is you, I would LOVE to talk to you :)

I have plenty of info explaining the app, so if you're interested just ask and I'll elaborate further :) Drop me (Luke) a line at ldstevens@gmail.com. Thanks!

I specialize in building high quality MVPs for startups. One recent client was accepted to Y Combinator and another client was accepted to the "Plug and Play" accelerator after I built their apps.

In addition to full-stack development with Ruby on Rails and Ember.js, I will help you with product direction and feature development. I challenge clients to eliminate unnecessary features which results in cost savings and focused MVPs.

I'm a strong believer in automated testing which translates into a high quality product with little to no user facing bugs. This gives my clients an extremely high level of confidence when adding new features and deploying.

If you're looking for someone to make your vision come to life, give me a call.

Freelancer - SEEKING WORK - Mumbai, India - Remote

I have just completed my ongoing projects and I am back here for more. I have been doing freelance work from reddit and HN successfully for the past year or so.

I am a software engineer working in one of the country's largest e-commerce websites.

I love learning and working on new technologies and platforms, but currently, my main experience is in Node.js and PHP. I also have some experience in working with Ruby and Sinatra. I work on linux, and I have deployed and managed web, database and application servers on CentOS and Ubuntu. I am familiar with bash scripting. I am also familiar with some basic Python and Go, but I have never really got a chance to work on it.

One of my previous jobs involved working with a large WordPress application, so I am quite adept with WordPress too. Most of my freelance work from reddit has been on the wordpress front: Customizing and working on various plugins. I have worked with various data stores too: Mysql, mongodb, redis are the primary ones.

On the front end side, I have worked on big JavaScript projects working with various html5 APIs. I dig semantic clean HTML markup and know my way around CSS.

I have worked on AWS on an earlier job, though my current organization has its own servers in a data center. I like working on big problems, "architecting" solutions which scale out and working on them, and tackling and troubleshooting live issues. I usually try to work on git whenever possible.

I am looking for medium to long term projects, and I love working remotely. Let me know if you have anything interesting and we can chat. Email me at mail@munimkazia.com.

I'm a Ruby developer based in London, looking for contract work to go alongside my part-time work at a successful YC startup and my undergraduate studies.

I love working in Rails, and have particularly outstanding experience building Twilio applications, from whole-company phone systems to small SMS services. I spoke about a cloud-based phone system I built at Twilio's European conference in 2013.

Apart from that, I have plenty of general Ruby experience, working with clients from charities to web hosting companies. I'm not afraid to work in Javascript, HTML5 and CSS3, and am happy to negotiate on price to find an arrangement that works for you.


Think I can help? Drop me a line at me@timrogers.co.uk.

SEEKING WORK - Remote only. (Based in Tel-Aviv.)

My name is Ram Rachum, and Im a freelance software developer. I help businesses solve their problems using software, mostly by developing web-based applications. I work mainly in Python and Django.

On the technical level, its my responsibility to have high problem-solving skills; to design a good architecture for each project I work on; to implement that architecture quickly and effectively; and to be experienced with the languages and frameworks that Im using, so when a problem comes up, I dont have to spend 2 hours to research and solve it but rather just 5 minutes, because Ive seen that problem dozen of times before.

On the project-management level, its my responsibility to communicate clearly and honestly with the client and my collaborators on the project; to understand exactly what the client wants to build as we plan together how to build it; to always keep the client updated about progress; to have an owner mentality and make decisions with the best interest of the client in mind; to own up to mistakes when they happen; and to always get feedback as early as possible from the client and from the users, so we know were not wasting time going into blind alleys, and were spending time only on features that the users are happy with. My email is ram@rachum.com . Send me an email and say hello.

More details about me: http://ram.rachum.com/cv/

SEEKING WORK - remote / Berlin

I'm a front-leaning, full-stack developer that is splitting time between Brooklyn and Berlin, and I am currently in Berlin. I am American, and know just a little bit of German (but am learning).

I have experience with every aspect of creating an application, from mockups and UX design, to graphic design, to the full-stack implementation, to deployment.I've successfully built and sold a past start-up of mine, and have a great deal of insight with product development. Because of this, I'm probably of most value the earlier a project is in its life cycle.

Backend stack: Ruby on Rails, with DBs/data stores such as MySQL, Postgres, Mongo, and Redis. I've also worked a bunch with Elastic Search. I can also use Node.js or PHP for the right project, but lately I've been doubling down on being a backend mono-glot.

Frontend stack: my preference is Angular.js, and I've also worked Backbone and Meteor. I am very well-versed in current best practices, can build responsive mobile-friendly websites, and code pixel perfect CSS and HTML5. I have a great deal of graphic design experience and can help there as well.

SEEKING WORK- Remote or Bay Area

Every website and marketing push involves content. But is your content effectively supporting your business goals? Is it performing as well as you want it to?

Chances are, if you hired a writer, or if you did it yourself, your content could do more to achieve your business goals. The missing ingredient is usually a careful combination of information/UX design, content, and ongoing testing.


If your content is not performing as well as you'd like, or you need new content for your marketing efforts, let me know and I'll gladly take some time to chat with you about potential solutions. If I'm the right fit for your needs, I'll share work samples and work up a proposal.

There is one particular use of IRC channels that is insanely useful, that I'd like to share.

On various programming language channels, there are ad-hoc expression evaluation bots that experienced people use to guide newcomers through the intricacies of the language. If you're new to Haskell, for example, what you can do is grab the logs for the past 3 years, grep for "> " (used to invoke the evaluator) and you have instant insight into how an experienced Haskeller's mind works. It can speed up your learning by a factor of 10 compared to reading papers / blogs / formal tutorials. I know because it did this for me.

This is going to be borderline off-topic as it's not general for developers.

I have to mention #clojure on freenode for being an incredibly welcoming IRC channel. The discussions you will see can be very interesting, and the community is more than often willing to help. Living in Japan, I was worried about the timezones being an issue, but there seems to be people from different parts of the world on the channel, making it very nice.

StevePerkins 9 days ago 1 reply      
I don't know that there are too many interesting "abstract" IRC communities, beyond those Freenode channels specific to a given programming language or technology.

I leave a connection to Freenode running while I'm at work, in a few channels related to my job... so that during builds, or other short bursts of idle time, I can glace over and see if there are any questions I can answer. Likewise, I throw out a quick question of my own every now and then, when I'm afraid it's too subjective in nature to avoid being closed by StackOverflow-lawyers.

I've lost interest in general chat, outside of specific questions and answers. From what I've seen, the nicer communities are the newer channels. Ironically, they degrade over time as their underlying technology matures. You would think that channels like #clojure and #go-nuts would be populated by immature hipsters, while ##java would be made up of 40-something corporate types. However, I've found that those first two channels are welcoming and thoughtful, with interesting discussion always taking place... whereas ##java (even its mods) frequently sound like pre-teens yelling profanity at each other on XBox Live.

I've recently been using SaltStack and have found #saltstack on Freenode to be very welcoming and helpful which is nice. Often you go into a channel and it's a ghost town or out right hostile to relatively simple questions. I think OSS projects in general could learn a bit of "marketing" in this regard, if your IRC channels are toxic, I immediately think your community as a whole may be toxic.
john2x 9 days ago 1 reply      
I've found #bash to be full of very helpful people. They don't get tired at all of being asked common bash questions. On most channels, if you ask a common question, they tell you to RTFM. But not on #bash. They still tell you to RTFM, but nicely, and usually after they give you an actual answer. Especially that greybot guy.

An approach that seems to work well for me is to use IRC as a way to communicate with groups people that mostly I know in person and share a common interest with. That way, I'm able to avoid a social pecking order or having to be "initiated" into a group. You may already be in one of these groups already, though the medium isn't necessarily always IRC--think Skype (text) chats groups with a subset of regulars.

Remember, you can always drag others along with you and start your own channel.

unpointfulness 9 days ago 5 replies      
Personally, I never found IRC to be a helpful tool for learning new things from unfamiliar people.

To me, IRC has always been a "grapevine" tool, where etiquette, social pecking orders and gossip are shared amongst a smallish close-knit social circle. IRC always feels more like a social scene, and a distraction.

If anything, perhaps an IRC channel is useful for managing fluid, rapidly changing situations, where you might need an up-to-date, live information source, to use in immediate decision making (hence, why bot net command and control tends to be integrated into IRC programs), but, otherwise, chat logs from IRC usually read like a disorganized array of participant's various scattered streams of consciousness.

Lots of good options here but let me add one more: maybe you're completely fine and don't need to make any kind of career change.

I and many developers I know have been through a phase like you describe. This is especially true in tech, where most projects fail, and for people with wide interests like yourself. Some people would be happy writing nice code and leave it at that. But you're going to be bummed if the design is ugly, the marketing plan doesn't work, or if any of a dozen other things outside your control goes wrong. You are upset, anxious, and fearful. You attribute your feelings to objective things around you like business failures, etc. and guess that a new line of work might solve those feelings.

Let me suggest that maybe they won't. Those feelings are telling you something, but you can't trust your guesses about what will solve them, and you especially should not make large, life-changing decisions because of half-understood feelings of anxiety and depression.

Instead, try to engage with and resolve those feelings in smaller ways. Pick something small you will decide to do really well and just thoroughly engage in it. Make some new friends. Maybe go talk to a therapist or religious figure.

What I found out of this process was that I had made several career moves, some bad choices in my personal life, and a lot of stress by setting myself impossible goals and ignoring some longstanding things I disliked about myself. In the process, I learned that I wasn't really paying attention to the world around me and especially to close friends and family. After some reading, low-pressure work, and therapy, I understand my own feelings much better, and I derive much more satisfaction from my life outside work.

Of course, by no longer putting on my job the stress to define me and my value as a person, I get to approach it much more freely and joyfully. It ain't perfect, and it doesn't always work, but on a good day I can deal with setbacks and annoyances without them damaging my emotional state.

A therapist would call this cognitive therapy focused on mindfulness. Various religions would call it spiritual direction aimed at contemplation or present focus. There does appear to be actual evidence of its value, though I'm only qualified to say it works anecdotally. Good stuff.

Anyone who is interested, feel free to ask questions here or email me at username at gmail.

The most important thing you can do is relax.

Sure, life is pretty grim in the sense that you can't do whatever you want unless you're rich. On the other hand, your life as a coder is far, far higher quality than e.g. a construction worker's or (regrettably) a teacher's.

One thing you could do is try to grow a source of passive income. See patio11 for insights on achieving this.

Also, three failures isn't anything to worry about or lose confidence over. Just remember how many times Jobs failed. Most of the successful people on here have a similar background of failures. The path to success is usually through failure, as paradoxical as that sounds. Sometimes you'll just be unlucky multiple times in a row. That's just life. But that's also a reason to keep your spirits high, because it's far less likely you'll fail ten times in a row. So, keep trying.

> I'm starting to panic that I'm running out of time to "get my shit together."

There is no time limit on getting your shit together. Seriously.

Please don't buy into the valley hype of everybody-is-a-success-in-their-twenties. It's bullshit.

> So, I'm interested to see the discussion about what those of us who are life long hackers (with a ton of varied experiences) can do besides keep writing code or moving into people management.

Considering what you said about liking prototyping, product strategy, etc. you might want to consider looking at adding some UX-ish skills to your skill set. There's a lot of overlap in goal, if not necessarily technique, and from my perspective it's even harder to find good UX folk than it is good developers at the moment.

Also - pretty much any consulting or team lead job is - at some level - people management. Don't mix up people management skills with organisational hierarchy or "being the boss" or telling people what to do.

I'd imagine that if you go chat to your uncle about his consulting work he'll tell you that large chunks of it aren't figuring out what to do - but working with people to make sure that it gets done. Management is all about helping groups of people do stuff effectively together. It's hard to think of jobs that don't involve people management of one sort or the other.

You ask "what else besides writing code or managing people" and mention prototyping & creativity: have you considered moving into product design/UX or product management?

After working as a developer for a few years, I got a bit disillusioned with "building and fixing things all day" as you say. I now work as a User Experience architect and am still involved with building and fixing things, but in a very different way. I still write code, but mostly to prototype ideas and collaborate with developers.

A broad understanding of various technologies and lack of specialisation/investment in particular frameworks is a plus, as you can understand what's required, without getting bogged down in details. You can take a leading role, without having to be anyone's boss.

Not sure if this sounds attractive to you, but it works for me :)

I am old enough that there was only one way to go once you hit "team leader" and wanted to earn more -> "management".

About 3 years ago I said stuff it, took a pay cut and spent a long and happy time just coding all day. It seems however that no matter which way I turn people will not let me sit in a box and type, I have to help straighten out teams, talk to humans, navigate politics.

We use coding as if it was a real job - it is no more a job than writing or literacy. A few privileged, talented people will be paid for their writing skills. the rest will use coding in the same way as literacy, as part of their job

1. You won't ever escape "people management", but that's not a bad thing. People (especially highly skilled professionals) are like autonomous self-guided missiles, you just need to know how to guide them, and let them be guided by you.

Start with Google's 8 rules http://www.davidzinger.com/8-google-rules-improving-manageme...

Remember - you will not be making the tough decisions - your team / people will. You just get to guide which tough decisions get looked at.

2. Having a "constant flow of new challenges" is all about building and filling a sales pipeline. This is pretty brutal work. There is nothing other than knuckling down, calling people, building audiences, sales sales sales. To me this is the biggest cost of being in business for myself - and I am a long way from having got it right.

So the advice I have and am trying to live by is

* build an audience on a subject you are good at

* build a product related to what you are good at

* keep going

Write. I don't mean the standard documentation kind of stuff, but "XYZ For Hackers" articles and books. There's a serious lack of people doing that, because it requires both technical chops to understand the material plus a large time and skill-development commitment to do the actual writing. In an ideal world, you'd have the opportunity to do some serious tinkering with a couple of brand-new technologies a year, then be the first to write for a very hungry audience, then you'd move on. Combine that with some speaking and more speculative commentary, and it could even get pretty lucrative.

It sounds like you like process and management, but doesn't have that authoritative leader streak. It sounds like you are technically capable, but you feel that you've missed the boat to be a top coder or engineer. It still sounds like you can be very useful, especially with your experience. Perhaps look at the new developments in the project or process management space and ride with it, or keep prototyping to try new business ideas on the side.

> Management-wise I struggle with giving critical feedback to people as their "boss".

Don't be a boss. Ask for "Lead [...]" in your job title, and get your colleagues to do what you tell them because of technical seniority, not hierarchical seniority.

As for your path: convince your company to let you develop a product with an Open Source license. Tell them it will provide them with free advertising, increase their notoriety in the industry, and mean they'll get other companies to work on their project for free.

Contact other companies and promote your project, this is simply a trojan horse for building a great contact list. This then leaves you free to move on to freelance down the road by charging for features, but fixes and support. It also allows you to find work really easily.

> I'm in love with business strategy, project ideas / planning, budgeting, and architecting.

So... do that?

If you tried 3 self-funded ventures you should know there's tons to do outside of coding. Maybe not when there's zero traction and just one person on the team, but as soon as there's more than that, there's plenty to do that's not coding. Managing systems, managing customers, managing finances, marketing, general office 'stuff'. And hell, no coder spends all their time actually coding.

One of my friends is just re-learning coding after being in startups for seven years simply because he was so busy doing all that other stuff for the startups he worked for.

Arguably, managing/dealing with people - not necessarily as their boss - is always going to be part of life, not to mention any business venture, so I'd say there's no getting away from that.

I was at a struggling startup and was going through some of the same issues. I decided to take a one year contract as a dev on a low stress project to give myself time to figure out what I wanted to do next without having to burn through savings. With a 9-5 schedule I'm doing some more traveling, relaxing, going to meetups, and doing some consulting projects. I also learned that I don't like working at a huge institution where no one is invested in the project. It helped me reinforce my passion for startups. You seem like you have some hard skills. You just seem depressed that you didn't succeed in the last few ventures. You've got to do it for the love of the game, not for the love or money/power/fame/whatever.

Become an expert in efficiency. Company processes are what separate great companies from good ones. The ability of having processes down, and duplicating those for scalability without foregoing quality. If you make yourself an expert on being able to see holes in efficiencies, then you create a lot of value for yourself.

This is just what I found when working, it would be the first thing people notice and reward, in companies.

Is your requirements list compatible with classical "systems analyst" role, or if not, the details why would probably help narrow the field. Ditto "product manager" role.

Also you need to evaluate yourself by your own metrics. In the grand scheme of things over human history having a "career" and "advancement" is unusual, apparently temporary, and is going away, back to the way it was. Being born into a declining economic era is not a personal failure worth feeling stressfully responsible about. Work to live vs live to work and all that.

You know, I absolutely see where the poster is coming from, and the suggestions look helpful so far, but the question might as well read: What journals and blogs should I be reading to become a Cardiothoracic Surgeon?

(though hopefully nobody bleeds out on a table when someone misconstrues statistical data)

We've lived through an amazing time where one could learn by doing, and talented people have been able to compete without the benefit of formal education (myself included), but in my opinion those days are numbered.

I've personally observed respected PhD statisticians stumble on the type of problems a data scientist is expected to address. The combination of complex software and often counterintuitive mathematics makes this an imposing field for all but perhaps the top one percent of practitioners. Most everybody else needs to really hit the books for a few years, in a formal setting.

With that pre-coffee rant out of the way, I'm looking forward to finding some new sources here myself. So, in that spirit, thanks for the question.

joshvm 10 days ago 1 reply      
Don't bother with journals - in pretty much any subject - unless you have a degree and/or you understand what to look for, or are directed to notable articles in bibliographies or by peers. There is a lot of crap in all journals, it's often needlessly technical for practical purposes or too bleeding edge to actually be useful yet.

I'm not trying to be snarky, but honestly unless you know what you're looking for it's a fool's game. Once you've got the feel for a subject, you tend to find several authors that crop up time and time again, or landmark papers that really shifted the field. But that takes a long time, it takes most PhD students a year to fully understand and simply collate the background of a topic they may think they know a lot about.

That and no one actually reads journals. You do a search on Web of Knowledge or ADS or arXiv or whatever your poison and you see what comes up. Point is, you need to know what you're looking for.

This is akin to saying that if you read Phys Rev enough, you'll become a physicist. Sure, sure, keep up with the trends, but big important results get press which is enough to rely on to start off with.

To become a data scientist? Read the recommended textbooks and take a proper degree in statistics, computer or data science. Look at the courses on EdX and Coursera for a starting point, they'll help you decide whether this is something you seriously want to pursue.

Even if this is just a hobby, e.g. you're a coder that wants to branch out, you should still take the time to invest in education properly. Data science, like statistics in general, is very easy to mess up. When people draw bad conclusions from data (and good data scientists can make up any conclusion from any data set), bad things inevitably happen. Entire threads of science have been destroyed because somewhere, someone messed up their stats and apparently important results are meaningless.

Becoming a data scientist isn't a matter of reading journals and blogs. You can get a sense of the field and what is required by reading those sites but becoming a data scientist is years of hard work.

You need to develop serious skills in at least 4 of the following disciplines.Statistical analysis

RDMS query development

NoSQL databases

Machine learning

Natural Language Processing

Web crawling and data harvesting techniques

Programming to access data APIs

Web development

Data visualization

Systems in business that generate data including, CRM, ERP and more

Geospatial data systems

Each of these areas would have its own set of resources both formal and informal.

Unless you are part of a vanishingly small group of autodidacts who can train themselves up to graduate school levels of expertise in multiple overlapping subjects - statistics, computer science (might be able to get away with just being an ok programmer), and the interdisciplinary combination of those called "machine learning," you should disappear into a statistics degree program, and amend the traditional stats program deficiencies with the modern-day leavening agents that create "machine learning."

Downloading scikitlearn and R and such is not going to work. At that level you are only qualified to be bossed around by a real scientist or statistician. You are an "analyst".

It made me realize that R is actually a better SQL. It's a language for tables, or an algebra of tables.

I would strongly consider not running a money transmitter as a side business. If you do not understand that you are running a money transmitter, I will be happy to elaborate.

I would also mention, on the assumption you're not aware of it, that you are offering fairly effective money laundering for credit card thieves at below-market rates for that service, and you can expect heavy dedicated adversarial interest. I rather expect you are receiving it already and are as-yet unaware of it. Feel free to ask for more elaboration if you do not understand the mechanics of how this works, or why it will quickly dominate the pool of people willing to receive $50 in consideration for $100 of Starbucks cards.

Advice: Shut it down before you get raided and shut down and your "side business" becomes "going to court and defending yourself."

What you clearly didn't realize is that long before BitCoin was popular, gift cards were one of the ways criminals laundered money. There are even discussions about which gift cards can be sold for the least discount. Gift cards can be sold for cash, so you are in effect, operating a bitcoin exchange.

How automated is it? Any parts that could be automated that aren't? That would be step 1 I think.

Secondly, don't panic!

Thirdly, consider if I sell you my Starbucks card balance and I was evil, could I some how phone Starbucks up and say my card was lost/stolen? What happens in this instance? It's the biggest risk you need to look at from what I can see at first glance. Perhaps test this.

Fourthly, is there a difference between a gift card and reward card? Coincidentally we just bought a reward card today for our startup (we drink lots of coffee). It looks like it has a similar number format as a gift card, and the Starbucks FAQ says they can refund a balance from the moment it's reported as stolen/lost:http://www.starbucks.co.uk/customer-service/faqs/card

Fifthly, become aquainted with the law. Gift cards in the UK at least are considered as "Like cash" as far as I am aware. This means you could be setting yourself up for a bit of legal trouble down the line if you are considered a transmitter or money or such. As other posters point out, the reason for your early success could be because you are being used as a money laundering service without you being aware of the fact.

And a question, what exactly are you doing with all these cards? Selling them on somehow? Or keeping them?

If this is too much risk/pressure for you, and you feel out your comfort zone, consider selling it as is for BTC. I'm sure you'll find a buyer for a good sum. If you like risk, want to make some money then good luck! Let the adventure begin. Although it sounds like as soon as you get any volume and Starbucks catches wind you'd be pretty easy to shut down. That's one of the better outcomes for you as well I think, the legal risks sound significant. If it was mine, I'd look for a quick sale and pass the risk on.

(1) - does your dream product have a novel take on the space / differentiates itself in some way (UX for instance - UX is a powerful differentiator (hipmunk is an example)? If so, Don't let existing competition scare you. If not, don't start the company!

Also, regarding MVP/Selling: Make a simple webpage for your product in launch-rock style. Just advertising. No actual product. Tell people exactly what the product is, and the benefits. Have some screenshots made by a designer friend. Set up analytics: measure incoming # users, and have a place for them to put an email. Then post this everywhere on the internet! Are people excited? How many people visit?

If people visit, this validates your concept, and if people sign up to learn more - don't worry, you can sell eventually find a way to sell your product. There is demand.

(2) Don't worry about this at all. After you do stuff in Step (1), find a better developer. If you are to run your startup, being a programmer really helps, but you won't be doing it for long.

(3) This is an important thing to fix. Are there local meet-ups for programmers / university clubs for geeks? After Step (1) you'd have a validated idea, so perhaps you can move to a more start-up friendly place if you can't find a local group in your hometown. Since there is a software company, there's gotta be more startup minded people in the closet!

(4) It doesn't have to be a career break. You should put your startup on your CV. The funny thing is, a lot of 'established companies' in the developing work are actually doing back office work for American startups. I understand that you run into cultural issues and this is hard. I guess this is part of the risk you'd have to take. You'll eventually find a new job.

I'm super conservative (safe?) with jobs, I don't want to leave a guaranteed check for something less certain.
