    Any advice for older programmers joining startups?

    Posted June 10, 2014 - 2:15 pm

    Do you have experience working as - or with - an older programmer in a startup? By "older" I mean beyond 20-something, possibly with a family and obligations that your average fresh-out-of-school coder doesn't have to worry about.

    How do you respond to a job interviewer that asks to see your social media activity?

    Posted May 16, 2013 - 2:40 pm

    Just to be clear, no one asked for a password. I have my Facebook and Google+ settings to ensure maximum privacy, so that anyone looking for me on either actually can have a hard time even finding me. The interviewer expressed concern that they weren't getting the "whole picture" because my privacy settings wouldn't let them see the "real" me.
