@matmanferdini 8) This is the useless advice I got when I started freelancing, which lead me to starve. Article coming next week on my blog @matmanferdini 7) Most important steps not mentioned: how to generate leads and how to convert them into clients. @matmanferdini 6) Believe in yourself: worthless if you are using the wrong strategies. Beliefs don’t bring actual clients. @matmanferdini 5) Set your pricing: important, but unless you know how to win clients, you don’t get to set any price at all @matmanferdini 4) Build your brand: useless. Very important instead: positioning, which the author seems to ignore @matmanferdini 3) Build your portfolio: busywork that is almost useless and brings no client @matmanferdini 2) Choose your expertise: niching is good, but this section only offers vague advice and does not show why it is important1) Despite what author says, this is NOT the way to start freelancing: https://t.co/bHwgUSPGFMVery interesting tweet storm on useless interview tests for software developers. https://t.co/l8VwFJyhqhI find some sad irony in Americans being afraid of war under Trump, but never having problems with escalation with Russia under Obama.

Let’s assume ASO doubles your downloads (which doesn’t, but let’s assume). If you have 10 each month, that would make them 20. @sla_shalafi here it’s hard to get a mortgage when self employed. So I got mine while I was an employee and then quit. Nobody bothered.Do you know why everyone talks about ASO these days? Because it’s easy, unlike talking about real business strategy.

By biasing its internal electoral market the DNC selected the less competitive candidate defeating the purpose of running a primary.
Retweeted by Matteo Manferdini @daniel_a_a They are, but reality is most people are sloppy at their job. We get to see recruiters because they write us. @daniel_a_a you are way too optimistic. Many emails I get are not even for stuff I do. For example I get offers for Microsoft stuff.

You think you can judge the character of the candidates, but you're really just comparing their rates of scandal leakage.

@atineoSE that’s a sign of huge dependencies. @atineoSE also, objects digging too deep into other objects’ properties. Like https://t.co/BNKiLiXBn5.property2.property3 etc. @atineoSE but those are just personal heuristics. @atineoSE good question, but I have no formal ones. If I open a class and it has 500 LOC or 10 properties, that’s usually a smell.

@pauldarcey thank you 😊 @pauldarcey yes, naming in general is a PITA @jhartikainen I currently used a couple fo swear words for some type I could not find the name for, just to move on 😛The thing I still find the hardest in programming is coming up with good names for my types and variables.

@manuelmaly Where do you plug then though? I only see thunderbolt ports, which as I understand it are not compatibleSo, Apple’s latest MacBook pro does not support Apple’s latest lightning EarPods? Or are they compatible? @daniel_a_a I did not have any problem. Might depend on the machine. My MBP is from last year. @mitchellvii @Cernovich @ScottAdamsSays it looks like the bullies reframe was an effective linguistic kill shot.
