Cu ce ne amuzam la aproape 4 luni:

In curand se implinesc 6 (sase!) luni de cand stau acasa (adica nu m-am dus la servici decat in vizita :D) si nu-mi vine sa cred cum zboara timpul. Abia astept sa incep sa-mi antrenez degetelele cu cateva linii de cod.

Btw, imi place foarte tare atitudinea lui Steve Jobs fata de Flash si Adobe: http://www.apple.com/hotnews/thoughts-on-flash/ .

„Symantec recently highlighted Flash for having one of the worst security records in 2009. We also know first hand that Flash is the number one reason Macs crash. We have been working with Adobe to fix these problems, but they have persisted for several years now. We don’t want to reduce the reliability and security of our iPhones, iPods and iPads by adding Flash.

We know from painful experience that letting a third party layer of software come between the platform and the developer ultimately results in sub-standard apps and hinders the enhancement and progress of the platform. If developers grow dependent on third party development libraries and tools, they can only take advantage of platform enhancements if and when the third party chooses to adopt the new features. We cannot be at the mercy of a third party deciding if and when they will make our enhancements available to our developers.

This becomes even worse if the third party is supplying a cross platform development tool. The third party may not adopt enhancements from one platform unless they are available on all of their supported platforms. Hence developers only have access to the lowest common denominator set of features. Again, we cannot accept an outcome where developers are blocked from using our innovations and enhancements because they are not available on our competitor’s platforms.”

Pragmatism camaderesc

Discutie pe holul firmei, la un pahar de vin spumos in cinstea proaspetilor insuratei.

Seful il intreaba pe mire:
– Si, esti la prima casatorie?

Mirele, bine trecut de prima tinerete, vizibil emotionat raspunde cu glas usor:
– Da.

– Aha (spune mai departe seful), eu dupa primele doua casatorii am renuntat sa mai fac petrecere. Devenise prea costisitor. Iar cum sanse prea mari sa devin cancelar nu aveam [aici se face referire la cele patru casatorii ale lui Schröder si la faptul ca atunci cand a devenit cancelar era cam financial broken din cauza lor], dupa a treia incercare a devenit prea costisitor sa ma mai recasatoresc.

Toti colegii cu mustata zambesc discret folosind-o ca paravan. Eu neavand, mai iau o inghititura de vin… Bon courage!

Calatoria in timp

Trebuie sa spun că e incredibil cat de talentaţi sunt colegii mei! La fiecare meeting descopăr noi talente artistice. De exemplu, la şedinţa din după-amiaza asta am descoperit ca product manager-ul desenează monştrii sensibili dar căzuţi in păcatul tutunului şi alcoolului, in timp ce user-interface designer-ul creionează şugubăţ pajişti şi căsuţe. Mă intreb dacă şi moderatorului şedinţei e la fel de talentat. :)
