Critique of 10 best tech position in the U.S. in 2015

Glassdoor has published its 25 Best Jobs in the U.S. for 2015

Glassdor, an American site where employees and former employees anonymously review companies and their management, has published its list of the ‘best’ jobs in the U.S. across the industries. We’ve selected 10 of them related to tech industry and put critique on it. The criteria are very idle and not related to tech industry.

tech job interview

Years of experience required to obtain the forthcoming positions are not indicated. And the number of job opened is not the correct criteria to indicate the best rating for a position, in case position is highly demanded this is not criteria to evaluate it as the best. We strongly believe that such role as solution architect is more prestigious than DB admin. 35% higher salary proves our suggestion.

Glasdoor’s rating is the following: #10 Mobile Developer; #9 IT Project Manager; #8 Network Engineer; #7 Business Analyst; #6 QA Engineer; #5 Solutions Architect; #4 Data Scientist; #3 Product Manager; #2 Database Administrator; #1 Software Engineer.

AngularJS advantages and limitations

Advantages and limitations of using AngularJS in your SPA

Introduction

With worldwide adoption of HTML5 the Single Page Applications have turned from an exotic AJAX trick to a fashioned mainstream. Those applications follow the well-established MVC design pattern and implement it with the help of HTML5 templates, external Web Services as the data sources and JavaScript logic that glues everything together.

AngularJS advantages and limitations

Unfortunately, it quickly became obvious that the tools (never intended for such purpose from the beginning) just do not fit the task. While HTML5/CSS3 standards leverage many of HTML 3.x/4.x inconveniences and finally provide a good base for building interactive Web Applications, the JavaScript language is a developers’ nightmare. Designed decades ago for simple animations and UI feedback, it has grown with time to a very flexible (and, with modern JIT compiling, fast enough) dynamic OOP language.

Setting up Orchard CMS on Mono

How to set up Orchard CMS 1.7.3 on Mono 3.8.0

Comprehensive guide how to step-by-step run Orchard on Mono (Updated: February 2015)

Officially, Orchard CMS does not support Mono. There are no promises and no known plans to make it compatible. But being an Open Source project, it encourages developers worldwide to give it a try.

orchard cms on mono

Challenge

On December 2014 I was given an assignment to set up a running Orchard CMS configuration on a Linux machine. It was intended to run an updated version of our company site – currently it available at www.softelegance.com and uses Orchard CMS 1.7.3 and Mono 3.8.0. As other company’s systems and services were already running on Linux (and some already using the Mono platform), the decision was to reuse the same system.

Mentions about Ukrainian’s IT industry in the press

Ukrainian IT sector was mentioned several times at the reputable press this week

Several world-known online magazines like Forbes and BBC published this week their special reports about the Ukrainian IT industry.

Forbes has published Could Ukraine Be The Next Silicon Valley?. Greg Satell says that since Silicon Valley emerged as the center of the technology world in the seventies and eighties, others have tried to followed its lead, most have failed, but a few have succeeded brilliantly.

“It’s also important to remember that Ukraine is largest and one of the best educated countries in Europe, with an excellent base of talent and technology infrastructure. So while it may seem unlikely for Ukraine to become the next tech mecca, I wouldn’t bet against it.”, Satell says.

Ukrainian tech industry is worth about $5 billion. The outsourcing is the most developed and employs roughly 50,000 engineers across 500 firms

The next was BBC with its “Tech sector leading Ukraine’s pro-European revival” by business reporter Padraig Belton. He says that Ukraine’s tech sector is flourishing, and Ukraine is a “sleeping IT tiger”.

At Daily Mail Online came with the same question “Will the next Silicon Valley be in UKRAINE?“. According to it Ukraine has more than 4,100 firms that outsource skills to other countries, and its IT industry is growing by a quarter each year. Technology startups are making waves across the US and Europe.

Ukraine exports $2 billion in software service each year

The conclusion is that Ukraine’s IT sector, including tech start-ups and outsourcing industry, is booming and worth to be one of the world-known places to start IT business.
