viraptor/reverse-interview: Questions to ask the company during your interview
This is a list of questions which may be interesting to a tech job applicant. The points are not ordered and many may not apply to a given position, or work type. It was started as my personal list of questions, which grew over time to include both things I'd like to see more of and red flags which I'd like to avoid. I've also noticed how few questions were asked by people I interviewed and I think those were missed opportunities.

Startup idea checklist | defmacro
I’ve been tinkering with different startup ideas and needed a good checklist to think through them. There are great templates for this already: The YC application, Amazon’s internal press release, and Sequoia’s Writing a Business Plan. I found myself mixing and tweaking these templates because they don’t exactly match my model of the world, so I wrote up my own list.

Mountainsides — Postlight — Digital product studio
In every proposal, we share an image that visualizes this more fluid approach to shipping great products. We call it the Mountainside:
It is a diagram that represents how we think about a product or platform effort. The X-axis is time and the Y-axis represents energy and resources. The four “ingredients” represent the various centers of discipline at Postlight. It’s a little messy. And we’re ok with that. It’s sort of like a Gantt chart that was left on the stove too long, leaving all those neat and tidy bars melting into one another.

7 Principles of Rich Web Applications
This is a writeup based on a presentation I gave at BrazilJS in August 2014. It builds on some of the ideas I’ve been blogging about recently related mostly to UX and performance.

I want to introduce 7 actionable principles for websites that want to make use of JavaScript to control their UI. They are the result of my experience as a web developer, but also as a long-time user of the WWW.

Publishing games - Game development | MDN
HTML5 games have a huge advantage over native in terms of publishing and distribution — you have the freedom of distribution, promotion and monetization of your game on the Web, rather than each version being locked into a single store controlled by one company. You can benefit from the web being truly multiplatform. This series of articles looks at the options you have when you want to publish and distribute your game, and earn something out of it while you wait for it to become famous.

nayafia/lemonade-stand: A handy guide to making $$ in open source
"I do open source work, how do I get paid for it?"

Below I've listed every way I know of that people get paid for open source work, roughly ordered from small to large. Each funding category links to several real examples. (Wherever possible, I've tried to link to a useful article or page instead of just a homepage.)

The categories are not mutually exclusive. For example, a project might have a foundation but also use crowdfunding to raise money. Someone else might do consulting and also have a donation button. Etc. The purpose of this guide is to provide an exhaustive list of all the ways you can get paid, so that you can figure out what works best for you.

One of my favourite breakfast recipes is protein pancakes and not only because by putting the word ‘protein’ in front of ‘pancake’ makes something that is traditionally an indulgence seem not as bad for you. In reality, these are actually great for you and will keep you fueled well into the day.

Cyvasse is a fictitious game from George R. R. Martin's series A Song of Ice and Fire, played in Essos and Dorne. The true rules to Cyvasse are not known, save by George R. R. Martin himself, and it may be the case that he has never developed a complete set of rules. The goal of this website is to allow fans to get together and play each other using a set of rules I developed.

Though the rules of Cyvasse are not specified in great detail throughout any of the books, we are given hints on how the game is played. In preparation for creating the rules, I have gone over the entire A Song of Ice and Fire series multiple times, including A World of Ice and Fire and The Hedge Knight diligently, paying special attention to A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons where Cyvasse is referenced. The rules used in this imagining are a combination of the specifics found in the books combined with my views on game design.

This project initially started on August 8th of 2014, as I was attending gSchool, a full stack web development boot camp. gSchool played a crucial role in the development of Cyvasse, as this is where I learned the skills I used to build this site. I started Cyvasse because building games is my passion, and remember the first time I googled Cyvasse, and found nothing that held my interest.

If nothing else, this site as a love letter to my favorite author George R. R. Martin, as well as an attempt to solidify a set of rules that reflect the specifics and spirit we learn about Cyvasse through out A Song of Ice and Fire.

The God Login
How would God build this login dialog? The answer is, of course, God wouldn't bother to build a login dialog at all. Every user would already be logged into GodApp the second they loaded the page because God knows who they are. Authoritatively, even.

This is obviously impossible for us, because God isn't one of our investors.

But.. how close can we get to the perfect godlike login experience in Discourse? That's a noble and worthy goal.

Solving the “marketplace” business model by @ASmartBear
Marketplace companies are notoriously difficult to start, so I’m constantly amazed that so many entrepreneurs chose this route. Maybe it’s the “go big or go home” mentality? If there’s a business plan less likely to succeed than a restaurant, this has to be it. But it’s not impossible; here’s some of the pitfalls and how to address them.

Field Cycles
Fabricante de bicicletas artesanal, bikes lindas

Field Cycles is a collaboration between a group of friends from various craft, design and engineering disciplines. The unique skillsets of the contributors - a maker, a painter, a graphic designer and an engineer - have come together in a shared passion that treats the fabrication of a bicycle as an exploration of craft, aesthetics and function. The partnership was developed out of a common pursuit for a hand built bicycle frame with a return to artisan craftsmanship, and a shared obsession with the bespoke production process as an antidote to mass-produced manufacturing. At its heart, a shared ethos of beauty manifests itself in the care and attention we pay to even the smallest of details within the process.

7 Patterns to Refactor Fat ActiveRecord Models - Code Climate Blog
When teams use Code Climate to improve the quality of their Rails applications, they learn to break the habit of allowing models to get fat. “Fat models” cause maintenance issues in large apps. Only incrementally better than cluttering controllers with domain logic, they usually represent a failure to apply the Single Responsibility Principle (SRP). “Anything related to what a user does” is not a single responsibility.

Early on, SRP is easier to apply. ActiveRecord classes handle persistence, associations and not much else. But bit-by-bit, they grow. Objects that are inherently responsible for persistence become the de facto owner of all business logic as well. And a year or two later you have a User class with over 500 lines of code, and hundreds of methods in it’s public interface. Callback hell ensues.

As you add more intrinsic complexity (read: features!) to your application, the goal is to spread it across a coordinated set of small, encapsulated objects (and, at a higher level, modules) just as you might spread cake batter across the bottom of a pan. Fat models are like the big clumps you get when you first pour the batter in. Refactor to break them down and spread out the logic evenly. Repeat this process and you’ll end up with a set of simple objects with well defined interfaces working together in a veritable symphony.

Hemingway makes your writing bold and clear.

Hemingway highlights long, complex sentences and common errors; if you see a yellow highlight, shorten the sentence or split it. If you see a red highlight, your sentence is so dense and complicated that your readers will get lost trying to follow its meandering, splitting logic — try editing this sentence to remove the red.

Adverbs are helpfully shown in blue. Get rid of them and pick verbs with force instead.

You can utilize a shorter word in place of a purple one. Mouse over it for hints.

Phrases in green have been marked to show passive voice.
