Thanks guys. We don’t even get as far as discussing about payment, since they are already hired or something. Planning to open offices in other cities as well.
Has anyone tried to hire developers fulltime this year? It is soooo difficult to find available devs, that are skilled enough to start working. Even with amazing offers that is.
In the city where we have one of our offices, it used to be easier to find relatively good people to hire. Now, I made a simple list with the companies that hire in the tens or hundreds, and it’s not even complete: Microsoft, Endava, Embarcadero, Continental, BitDefender, Amazon, Pentalog, RomSoft, Comodo, The Red Point, Softvision, Synygy, Mind Software, grapefruit, code40, OSF GLOBAL SERVICES , Eye Partner, Ocenture, Webfusion, Neogen, Siemens Automotive, Lead Soft.. the list can go on.
How can small startups compete with such guys? There’s too much demand, too little people to choose from. Doesn’t it happen in your countries as well?
Actually I was just looking into this. I’ve been having some serious problems with my data lately. And now, after I got a new external HDD , the iMac (latest model, highest configuration) decided to make problems http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6fWgLa8jeA&feature=plcp.
I RECOMMEND THIS :http://www.synology.com/products/product.php?product_name=DS413j&lang=uk#p_submenu
SYNOLOGY DS413j is the way to go.
This NAS was just released days ago, very competitive pricing, and from my research – in the past two months – I highly recommend it. I was undecided if I should go with a Time Capsule instead, but unless they release a major update – holding up to 16GB of data that can be set in RAID 5 , I don’t see any chance of buying one. That, or Apple breaking the way 3rd party NAS hardware works!
It’s the best out there it seems.
Use Sublime Text.
No IE on MAC , no Safari on Windows. Seems fair to me.
It’s sad to see Flash dying, no? Who would have thought..
Chrome. Once you give it a try, you won’t look back.

My MacBook Pro Retina arrived yesterday!What programs / apps do you suggest I get for a nice smooth work flow?
I still have a few more tools to add to it since I’ve updated it, but you’ll have a complete list to be fine with. Welcome to the Apple world!
I noticed this trend a while ago, around 2009 to be precise. Then the iPad was out and it was clearer. I hate to say it, but I hate navigating full Flash websites. Never been a fan, and never understood their need, even though we built some, for the money.
The truth is Flash helped me start as a developer, and helped me notice the web. Now that I’ve grown up with it, I know it’s not about Flash. It’s about what delivers the same experience Flash did. And yes, Flash will be out in 2 to 5 years. That is not a problem, because we still need the same multimedia interactivity – be it audio, video, images, or a combination of the three + text.
What we have today in ActiveDen is what people need because of the interactivity, not because these are built with Flash. So focus on delivering the same things to your clients, using a non-Flash language.
We focused on mobile and social media + web. I personally focus more on creative + looking into design / photography. I was expecting more Flash Devs to go on the creative side, instead of the coding dark side.
I just wanted to add that in my opinion flash will live on! is just that it is not used as in the past, I still get work in flash mainly full websites but I have to create a mobile version too this is the only difference, the mobile version is something simple… I don’t see html5 to replace flash any time soon maybe never.
Give me something of what you are drinking.
