5 Tips To Make Your GitHub Portfolio Perfect (Video)

March 6, 2019 Posted by News, Video 0 thoughts on “5 Tips To Make Your GitHub Portfolio Perfect (Video)”

While a resume is an important component to showcase your abilities to the potential employers, if you belong to the data science community, you might want to showcase your abilities in coding and other software capabilities in a way that does justice to your skills. A crucial part of data science jobs is to be able to code, and GitHub serves as a perfect platform to access the coding skills and display hands-on ability to solve problems.

We created 5 tips to make your GitHub portfolio perfect.

1.Including good author info: This includes details such as candidate’s username, location, email address, current employer, etc. As this the first thing that potential employer notices, it is a good idea to have other relevant links such as personal blogs, websites, projects and other links that candidates can showcase.

2.Large followers: The number of followers that your portfolio has is a good indication of the work that you have done in the past. It showcases how fellow GitHub users engage with your work. Having large followers comes with the significant amount of work a candidate might have done on GitHub. More than 50 is usually a decent number.

3.Contribution graph: This indicates the number of contributions that a developer has made on other projects on the site. It showcases your keenness to explore other areas and shows activity levels in the coding community. The greener the graph is, the better is your contribution rate. Therefore it is always advisable to keep exploring.

4.Improving on stars: These are user ratings and may not be considered the only indicator for a good GitHub profile. Each project on GitHub user can earn stars from fellow users. It is a way of identifying how you have engaged in the community. 100 stars are usually considered decent but larger the better.

5.Writing employer-targeted code: Writing a code related directly to the employer’s business is a good way to catch their attention. It can showcase your coding abilities while demonstrating the interest you have in getting that job. The projects can be as simple as creating a visualization of its data sets.

Having mentioned the pointers above, the key idea is to create stronger projects for a strong GitHub profile. The recruiters pay attention in the areas such as the variety of projects that you have brought, completeness of the project, its functionality, readability and most importantly the information that it stores and displays.

Top 5 Ways To Write Better Code (Video)

February 25, 2019 Posted by Programming, Video 0 thoughts on “Top 5 Ways To Write Better Code (Video)”

Every developers can agree on this. There’s too much poorly written code out there in every shape and form possible. Were being faced with the problem of people getting pushed to produce work too fast and its dropping the quality of our code. Its amazing how quickly some projects get pushed through because they miss some of the most basic parts of a project, like a plan!

Plan It Out

There are a lot of reasons planning gets skipped. Youd be surprised how many projects get passed to developers and all they have to go on is a few vague sentences about what it should do. The people involved in managing the project will set up meetings to talk you through what they are looking for and that’s all you get. Its up to you to make something out of the little scraps of information you can get up front.

Think about how a person will use it

I know thats usually the web designers job, but it wont hurt you to think about usability as the developer. If you can slap an auto-completer on a search input just do it. It can take a extra time to do these little things but they will make a world of difference to the end users.

Go One Layer Down

This is one I recently learned thats changed the way I think about my code. It goes back to those… … frameworks. Sometimes the level of abstraction they use goes too far and you lose track of what youre really writing. One subtle example of this is jQuery. How many times have you used the $ for variables? Do you remember what it means? Go a layer below the jQuery and you have pure JavaScript. If you dig through the JavaScript you can figure out what the $ is. Thats what I mean by go one layer down.

Keep Your Code Clear

All of the code you write should have a purpose. If theres anything in your code thats confusing to you then you need to find a way to make it clear. Use good variable and file names. Stick with a certain naming convention. These are some basic best practices that are easy to overlook in the heat of a sprint. Consistency is going to make your code a lot easier to debug and update because youll know exactly what everything is. No one will have to wonder what you were trying to do when you wrote that chunk of code because itll be clear as day. You have to find a balance here though.

Documentation

One of the most dreaded things for web developers is writing documentation. You have to decide how detailed you get and how much time you have but some documentation is better than none. Even if its just a few tips on how to get a project set up or a quick guide on how the project works, something is better than nothing. Documentation gives your project that polished feel and itll help other developers who join you or maintain it after you get up to speed faster.

Apple wants app developers to use a subscription model (Video)

September 14, 2018 Posted by News, Video 0 thoughts on “Apple wants app developers to use a subscription model (Video)”

Apple is encouraging app developers to make the switch to a subscription model, rather than a one-off purchase cost or in-app purchases to unlock features.

It’s now continuing this push with a new video on its developer site …

The developers behind Elevate, Dropbox, Calm, and Bumble share how they create great customer experiences by continuing to provide value throughout the subscription lifecycle. Featuring: Jesse Germinario, Elevate; Ly Nguyen, Dropbox; Tyler Sheaffer, Calm; Sarah Jones Simmer, Bumble.

The appeal for developers is obvious: subscriptions generate the holy grail of tech businesses, recurring income. But users appear less convinced. A survey back in July found that the majority of iOS app users prefer a one-time payment to a subscription.

However, developers appearing in the video – likely shot at WWDC – argue that subscriptions benefit users as well as developers. They suggest that a subscription model gives user an opportunity to assess the value of a service without a larger one-off payment; that you’re funding continual development of the app; and that developers are incentivized to ensure that they continue to offer what customers want.

Apple advises developers to make a clear pitch and ensure the sign-up process is simple.

When communicating your subscriptions in your app and marketing materials, use clear, consistent messaging to make it easy for users to recognize the value of the offer. Include the value proposition of your subscription, a succinct call to action, and clear pricing and subscription terms.

Keep the purchase flow simple and only ask for necessary information upfront. Having too many steps or taking too much time for a user to sign up will lower your subscription conversion rate.

Provide prompts to subscribe in your app’s onboarding, and consider providing a persistent subscription button throughout the app interface.
