Diagramming a system.

Does 1 developer = 1 developer?

When a developer is brought in to a project, most managers believe that since that person is a developer, they should automatically understand the system. Not so.

Most businesses believe that if they lack a programmer with a certain skillset, they outsource the job to a programmer or programmers. It doesn't matter if it's in or out of the country, consultants or new employees.

When a new developer is brought in and introduced to a new system and asked to maintain it, they struggle. With the amount of "creative coding" applied across the hundreds of thousands of systems, managers expect a developer to pick up where the other developer left off.

Does 1 developer = 1 developer?

As I've said before, all programmers "paint" a different image on their digital canvas. Writing code is no different than painting for artists. It may be more abstract than what another programmer is used to, but their creativity sometimes makes other programmers tilt their head and start twitching because it's not what they're used to seeing in code.

Blog Consultant Reviews DCS Media

I always wanted an outside opinion, and now I got one.

October 10th, 2007 at 9:00am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Blogging

It's been about six months since the latest design of DCS Media and I received a review from Michael Martine at Better Blogging with Michael Martine.

Mr. Martine was kind enough to pick my site along with 4 other bloggers for a total package of $500 ($100 a site) -- Free of charge.

The review was definitely spot on and I'll be implementing most of these changes in the coming weeks (I'm currently under the gun with about 4 clients with web sites).

Every blogger is always looking for some free traffic and BlogRush is a great idea that is a breakthrough and will show how much traffic can be generated through knowing someone.

The BlogRush site appeared through Shoemoney's website, Problogger.net, and many others. I'm getting it third-party it seems.

The idea behind BlogRush is that you post a widget on your blog that pertains to a particular category. BlogRush's script analyzes the page and posts additional content from other web sites into the  widget. For example, my site is geared towards Technology and Small Business/Freelancing. I've decided to pick the technology category for now.

If you blog for a living, most of you know what flagship content is. If not, I would recommend checking out Chris Garrett's web site at ChrisG.com.

He made an announcement a week ago asking if everyone could send him their flagship content. Judging by the list, everyone obliged him and as a result, he posted the entire list of his Flagship Content Roundup.

I added my post about the Top 20 Programming Lessons I've Learned in 20 Years, but there are other quality posts that make this list a great value.

Blog Tour USA was a success!

The bus arrived on Friday in Columbus, OH.

July 16th, 2007 at 4:00am — Comments: (1) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Blogging

Friday was a great day for bloggers in Columbus, OH. The Blog Tour USA bus with Joe and Rudy  from Sellsius stopped at the Real Living HER Realtors office in Worthington.

Maureen McCabe, who is also a realtor and owner of ColumbusBestBlog.com, organized the stop and we all had a great picnic outside with hot dogs, chips, and refreshments.

There were realtors and bloggers that arrived who were new to blogging, intermediate users, and, of course, the advanced bloggers. This was definitely a way for newbies to learn about blogging and how it can help their business. This was Joe and Rudy's goal from the get-go. They wanted to enlighten other realtors about how blogging can increase their business.

Now, it's at $15,807.12. It makes me wonder what it'll be in a year from now. hehehe.

Should bloggers alter history?

Make a post about a certain event and then the event takes a certain twist. Do you go back and update your post or place an update on the page?

August 31st, 2006 at 8:00am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Blogging

Dave Taylor brings up a good point on his blog about why bloggers need to be historical revisionists on their site.

I've gone the way of putting an addendum to the end of my posts, usually a "UPDATE:" marker to show there are newer developments.
