The fear of the number 13 has been given a scientific name: "triskaidekaphobia"; and on analogy to this the fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia, from the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή, meaning "Friday"), and dekatreís (δεκατρείς, meaning "thirteen")

Head of Google HR, has shared best practises of human recruiting and management on the specially created site https://rework.withgoogle.com/


In particular, the tools and software they use for hiring and personnel management, etc. The idea of the site - to help other companies also organize their work as Google.

Man seems nice, I think it will be interesting to take a look. What can I say - thank you!

Just a week ago, in search of frontend developers went to the Hilton Hotel, on a forum of graphic designers. Unfortunately, quest failed. But I must admit I was not as active as it should be.

Mostly they discussed topics with regards to branding, industrial design. Web-design remained untouched. Which indirectly confirms my thoughts about that in our country this area is lagging most, and it is understandable - after all frontend requires more discipline, self-studying, and in general - this thing is not for everyone.

From appearances, I realized that we of course have the talented people, but the vast majority of people who wish to pursue the case, absolutely have no understanding of the process of "growing up" works. And they don't have basics of motivation, but it is the fault of the business environment in which they live, and limitation to leave it. Actually not in the "business environment", but in monopoly in leading and profitable areas. From that environment, there is no need to give birth to some original solutions to attract attention. A competitor can always be closed with help of familiar official, completely legal.

By the way that's why I asked one of the speakers, Mirza Aliyev (MİRZƏ ƏLİYEV Art Director McCann), about foreign practice,  wanted to bring to the people sitting in the audience the idea that the world is much wider than the city or even the country in which they live. I hope that thought find a striker :).

With regards to the evening: there was no particular topic, so perhaps there was no "depth". But the people were nice, and my company was interesting.

If you have any problem with gem shoulda-matcher after installation and start of gem Zeus, do not just roll back the entire development and say goodbye to Zeus.
Try the following:

In Gemfile:

gem 'shoulda-matchers', require: false

In file spec/rails_helper.rb if presents, or in spec/spec_helper.rb:

require 'rspec/rails'
require 'shoulda/matchers'

It should work. Good luck!
