The technical Interview — It’s important to know what you’re talking about.

Posted on  
   /  by    Patrick

I’ve been working in the technical realm for about 10 years now. I’ve been intrinsically involved in the incredible progression of computers and the network known as the internet. When I first started working in the field, excellent I.T. candidates were certainly more scarce than today. There’s a relatively new epidemic of people presenting themselves as qualified technical specialists who just really… well… aren’t actually qualified. I did an interview yesterday for a web development position and was astonished to find that the candidate actually denied having any experience with some of the technologies listed on his resume. It seems that a growing number of candidates are expecting that the people at the interviewing table are not going to be tech savvy, and that including fancy sounding acronyms for technologies they’ve barely touched will help them land that tech job. This needs to stop now. If mySQL is on your resume, you’d better know what a LEFT JOIN is. To prepare for the interview I reviewed the candidate’s resume and developed a list of questions based on the technologies listed there. I couldn’t ask half of my questions because after the candidate realized I knew a thing or two — he just claimed he didn’t actually have experience with several of the key technologies listed on his resume.

It’s better to omit a skill from your resume that you’ve got very limited experience with; or just write what level of experience you have with a certain discipline that is new to you. When I’m looking for a technical candidate I don’t really care if they’re already a ninja in this or that language or if they can write regular expressions in their sleep. I just want to see that they are intelligent, honest, have accomplished something interesting with technology, and have a genuine interest in delving deeper into new projects.

An Interface should teach you how to use it — the 10 Heuristics of Usability..

Posted on  
   /  by    Patrick

I’ve been working quite a bit on UX / UI design lately. Most people aren’t aware of the fact that there’s a discipline of science behind developing User interfaces for digital devices. At MIT a prerequisite course in User Interface design is Computer-Human psychology. One of the main text books used there was published in 1986 and many of the concepts still hold true.

The importance of integrating SEO & SEM efforts with Social Media

Posted on  
   /  by    Deanna

As we work with more and more clients, we have learned that they have been approached by many companies who specialize in SEO (search engine marketing), or Social Media specialists. To our surprise, we found that the offerings were either for SEO (search engine optimization), SEM (search engine marketing) OR social media campaigns.
None of the companies thus far, have offered to integrate these facets of internet marketing!

What makes good keywords for SEO

Posted on  
   /  by    John

Keyword selection is crucial for ranking higher in the search engines!

One of the constant conversations that we have with clients is on keyword selection. This topic is way too complex to be able to summarize in a short blog post. To write an entirely encompassing article would take hundreds, if not thousands of pages and would bore most everyone to tears. What I hope to do, is just touch on some highlights of most common errors we see. Continue reading

Thoughts on Object Oriented CSS

Posted on  
   /  by    Patrick

If content is King then performance is Queen. In today’s world of insanely fast internet connections, the effects of spaghetti code on load times are becoming increasingly more noticeable. There are developers whose entire career is built on refactoring code for better performance. You hear about this type of work often in the realm of Javascript, PHP or Ruby but it’s often overlooked when dealing with CSS. Bloated CSS is less expensive than a bloated JavaScript function at load time. If you’re trying to write code that’s easier to maintain and helps you gain milliseconds you might want to have a look at Object Oriented CSS.  Continue reading
