  1. Using Happiness as a Career Path

    I would imagine most people aren't sure what they want to do as a career for the rest of their lives when they come out of high school, university or whatever their last educational step might be. You can't know every possibility that is available to you, and you probably never will. I worked as an accountant, a teacher, a cinema usher, customer support and fruit & vegetable sales person. And those were all before I started my computer science degree. My point is that you won't always know what...
  2. How well do you understand your career?

    Most people don’t spend time thinking about their career. Most people don’t realize that how they see their career and how their career appears to others are entirely different things. People are either preoccupied with the job they have, or are preoccupied in thinking about the job they want. They might update their resume every now and then, but they won’t take time out just to consider where their career is or where it should be going.Your job isn’t your careerThe first thing you realize when...
  3. Introduction to Google ARCore Development

    In the past couple of years, if not more, the technology of virtual, augmented and, lately, mixed realities have taken a huge leap forward both for consumers as well as enterprise. Initially augmented reality (AR) almost entirely consisted of overlaying data on the real world, triggered by a shape, a logo, a QR code, or something else that could be easily recognised. Most of all it was very similar to a heads up display. Not really interacting with the real world, not really being part of your reality.
  4. How to stop feeling as though your career is drifting

    If you were asked what your most recent career accomplishment was, could you come up with something that didn’t sound trite? You don’t need to accomplish something big every month with your career. That’s likely an impossible task even for the most motivated amongst us.But you do want to be able to be able to think back over the last twelve months and come up with something that you’ve done to show that you aren’t drifting and that other than turning up at work every day, you’re actually making progress...
  5. "The End Game" - 7 Things I Learnt from my Microsoft Internship Experience

    The End GameIn the game of chess, players are most often known by two things: One, their opening move - that is, how they start a game, and their ending move(s) - otherwise called the end game. More often that not, names (of masters of chess) are given to how a chess piece is moved at the beginning of the game, but it is unlikely to find names given to how chess games. This is because the end is always strewn with a certain uncertainty - a void that permeates one's psyche when the conclusion of a...
  6. Using Geo-Location in Your Web App

    The use of GPS data has become second nature for most everyday tasks. The most common scenario of finding your way from A to B using GPS is obvious, but there are a lot of other uses as well. When you ask to find the nearest store on a company website, GPS is used. When you log into Facebook in a foreign country and you subsequently get ads for all of the Swedish natural foods you can eat, GPS is used. When you ask Google to remember where you parked your car, GPS is used. And many more ways. 
  7. Operation Not Legal in the Current State - Debugging ASP.NET Core Web Applications

    The other evening I was playing around with an ASP.NET Core application. When I started debugging it, I immediately saw an error message pop up that said It was a bit of a head scratcher, so I decided to restart the debug session and see if the problem resolved itself. This didn't help and I saw the same error again.I also saw that my Chrome browser had started up, but it wasn't showing my web page. It was stuck on a notification page telling me that JavaScript debugging is now enabled in Visual...
  8. The state of gender diversity in the tech industry: Gooroo facts and data

    The discussion on gender diversity in tech recently heats up with the viral memo on gender issues (titled "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber") by ex-Googler James Damore. Since then it has attracted several follow ups, including prominent ones by the New York Times or by The Washington Post. At Gooroo, it is pretty relevant to us as the tech industry is our main focus. We are specifically interested in knowing the facts behind the state of gender balance/diversity in tech companies...
  9. 6 Ways to Add More Hours to Your Day

    Over the last year I have started doing a lot of mentoring of mainly technical people. Based on almost 20 years of experience in the technology industry I found that I have formed routines and procedures that can be beneficial to lots of other people. Especially within the tech-community there are a large number of people who, in my opinion, could benefit immensely from having a mentor in their life to help them move forward, set goals, achieve more and be more.I find it highly satisfying to help...
