Next week is going to be rather busy. Three (possibly four) exams and giving a short talk ... that needs to be prepared, delivered and the resulting lady fans wooed.
You know how it goes.
I don't want to go into radio silence for a whole week. Writing crappy quickies all week is severely undesirable as well.
if you've got anything to say, anything at all, say it here.
Write a guest post for this site on anything ranging from science, to tea and the startup world. I'm not particularly picky, but I want to feel a human voice (as opposed to a generic marketing post spam)
Why would you do that? Because:
- You shall win my eternal gratitude. I will owe you two not one (favour, blogpost, whatever)
- Your post will land in ~800 adoring RSS readers
- I'm going to tweet your post exactly three times. That gets a reader or two
- I will lovingly spoon feed your post to all 1700 of my G+ humans
- Did I mention I'm going to love you forever?
If that isn't enough to convince you, I have attached a cute hedgehog. You can't say no to something that cute. Fact.
I write articles with real insight into the career and skills of a modern software engineer. "Raw and honest from the heart!" as one reader described them. Fueled by lessons learned over 20 years of building production code for side-projects, small businesses, and hyper growth startups. Both successful and not.
