Internships

Expectations VS Realities of internships

I’m not saying all internships are bad but, unfortunately, a lot of them are just rip-offs. Specially on big ‘cool’ companies where there are plenty of eager aspirants waiting for the chance to take your position. You get on an unpaid internship thinking of the experience you would receive and how it would help you land a good job in the future. Instead you end up doing chores that have no learning value like picking up coffee and other stuff that the company would otherwise have to pay someone for.

Do you have any internship horror stories, or maybe a good experience you would like to talk about? Share on the comments!

How Geeks Celebrate Xmas

How Geeks Celebrate Xmas

As some of you know, I’ve been working with the tech company Koding for a bit. I have been surrounded by geek/nerd culture for the past months and I’ve just realized I was just a poser that called himself a ‘geek’. These guys are hardcore!

If you’re into programming, studying computer science, learning javascript, ruby, etc, I highly recommend using their free service. It’s like having a computer with everything you need pre-installed on the cloud.

Merry Christmas ya filthy animals!
