How to Prepare for Yearly Performance Reviews as a Software Engineer
Yearly performance reviews for software engineers can be a stressful and/or exciting time.  If we can prepare for review season by having a clear idea of our impact, data to support it and a clear vision for where we want to go in our career, we can set ourselves up for a successful yearly performance review.ChaptersNew Year - New End-of-Year Review Cycle 00:25 End of Year Reviews Focus on Two Things 02:05 How to Review Your Previous Year? 02:20 Write Down Your Accomplishments 02:55 Managers Love Concrete Numbers 03:31 Build Your "Brag" Document 04:27 Concisely Capture Impact 05:33 How Do You Want To Grow In The Next Year? 06:49 Are You Trying To Get Promoted? 07:47 Are You Trying To Learn A New Or Role? 08:39 Be Prepared 09:49 Stay Open To Feedback 11:11 Summarize The End Of Year Review Framework 13:18Thanks for listening devs! 👋Let's Connect--🔔 Find More Developer Content On YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/c/goobario?sub_confirmation=1🙂 Find Me Onlinewebsite ➡ https://goobar.devlinks ➡ https://goobar.dev/links

Descope Your Software Project To Deliver Early And Often
Descoping a project or feature simply means making it smaller.  This might mean cutting out a few bells and whistles, or it could mean making large changes to the overall requirements.By evaluating project requirements and deadlines early on, and looking for ways to deliver smaller portions of that project earlier in the process, we can deliver value earlier and more often.This process can help us reduce risk and help increase the overall quality of the project by getting feedback earlier on in the software development process.Thanks for listening devs! 👋Let's Connect--🔔 Find More Developer Content On YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/c/goobario?sub_confirmation=1🙂 Find Me Onlinewebsite ➡ https://goobar.devlinks ➡ https://goobar.dev/links

Look For The Root Cause When Solving Problems
When debugging an error in our code or looking for a solution to a given problem, it's easy to fall into the trap of going with the quick, obvious solution.  However, this often sets us up for future problems because many times the obvious solution does not solve the root cause of the error or solve the fundamental problem of the task in front of us.By asking questions like "how?" or "why" we can dig deeper into the potential solutions and try to identify a fix or solution that addresses the immediate need while also avoiding future problems.Thanks for listening devs! 👋Let's Connect--🔔 Find More Developer Content On YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/c/goobario?sub_confirmation=1🙂 Find Me Onlinewebsite ➡ https://goobar.devlinks ➡ https://goobar.dev/links

Non-Coding Tips for Coding Interview Assignments
Unsurprisingly, when discussing take-home assignments for coding interviews, much of the focus is put on code.  Can you code?  Are you using "best practices?"  What tools are you using?.  There's lots of code-related things that people think about, or even stress about. Unfortunately, non-coding tips for coding interview assignments don't get talked about nearly as much. And, in my experience, there are a lot of non-coding things we can do to put our best foot forward and impress a hiring committee with our take-home assignment.Chapters00:00 Teaser00:46 Coding Gets All The Discussion01:26 Non-Coding Tips For Takehome Assignments01:46 Telling Your Story02:28 A Unique Opportunity03:06 Making A Positive First Impression03:49 Leveraging Project Metadata04:12 Filling Out GitHub Project Information05:06 Include A Project README05:59 Clearly Organize Your Project07:01 Ensuring A Positive First Time User Experience07:32 Make Sure Your Project Doesn't Crash08:30 Impress With UI Polish12:37 Use Consistent Styles & Conventions13:52 Don't Skip The Basics15:07 Documentation Is Key16:12 Document Your Thought Process17:38 Documentation Comes In Many Forms19:46 Telling Your Story20:59 Wrapping UpShow NotesMaterial Design Color ToolMaterial Design GridAndroid Ripple AnimationArchitectural Decision RecordsContacthttps://twitter.com/n8ebelhttps://goobar.dev/contact/Thanks for listening devs! 👋Let's Connect--🔔 Find More Developer Content On YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/c/goobario?sub_confirmation=1🙂 Find Me Onlinewebsite ➡ https://goobar.devlinks ➡ https://goobar.dev/links

Mobile App Security - Tips For Securing Your Mobile Projects
This week, I want to talk about app security; specifically mobile app security; and being really, really specific Android app security; though the concepts will apply equally as well to iOS applications.App security is something that is vitally important to business and individuals that are possibly working with customer data, working with 3rd party services, or even working with your own services.Now while these security issues are serious, there also seems to be a rather glaring lack of security-focused information and discussion out there.So in this episode, I want to chat through a high-level overview of Android app security and some action items to help improve your project's security today.We'll talk about ways to improve your app; your source code; and your infrastructure.Chapters0:00 Teaser0:43 Overview3:41 Intro4:02 Why Is App Security Important?5:38 How Can We Minimize Security Risks?8:26 Minimizing Risk From Our App8:59 Obfuscating Our Code14:11 Securing API Keys19:24 Protecting Network Traffic24:45 Protecting User Data28:01 Securing Your Developer Identity35:00 Securing Your Source Code38:25 Protecting Your Development Machine40:28 Securing Your CI Infrastructure42:41 In SummaryResourceshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obfuscation_(software)https://developer.android.com/studio/build/shrink-code#obfuscatehttps://r8.googlesource.com/r8https://developer.android.com/training/articles/security-confighttps://developer.android.com/studio/publish/app-signing#secure_keyhttps://docs.github.com/en/actions/reference/encrypted-secretsContacthttps://twitter.com/n8ebelhttps://goobar.dev/contact/Thanks for listening devs! 👋Let's Connect--🔔 Find More Developer Content On YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/c/goobario?sub_confirmation=1🙂 Find Me Onlinewebsite ➡ https://goobar.devlinks ➡ https://goobar.dev/links

Understanding Continuous Integration
In this week's episode, we're chatting about a topic near and dear to my heart; continuous integration, or CI, as it's more commonly referred to.This is something that pretty much any modern professional dev team is going to use, and yet, it's something that many new devs have very little exposure to or understanding of.  Because of this, CI can seem very intimidating and is often silo'd off as something most people don't think about.But hopefully in this episode, we can start to change that.  We're going explore the core goals and concepts of CI, introduce you to a few of industry leading CI tools, and finally, we'll chat about how you can start taking advantage of CI in your teams or personal projects.🖥 CI Samples for Android DevelopmentBuilding An Android CI Pipeline With GitHub Actions:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3_bkhQRrtU&t=1sSample Project - GitHubActionsAutomationSandbox:https://github.com/n8ebel/GitHubActionsAutomationSandbox🛠 CI ProvidersGitHub Actions:https://github.com/features/actionsCircleCI:https://circleci.com/Jenkins:https://www.jenkins.io/Bitrise:https://www.bitrise.io/Codemagic:https://codemagic.io/start/Travis CI:https://travis-ci.org/Contacthttps://twitter.com/n8ebelhttps://goobar.dev/contact/Thanks for listening devs! 👋Let's Connect--🔔 Find More Developer Content On YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/c/goobario?sub_confirmation=1🙂 Find Me Onlinewebsite ➡ https://goobar.devlinks ➡ https://goobar.dev/links

 How are you feeling about working from home right now?As I look around the internet, it appears to me that results are mixed.  Many are loving the new remote work lifestyle.  Many others are stressed, working more hours, and feeling pressure to maintain productivity while working from home.I don’t believe either of these groups are right or wrong.  Everyone’s situation is unique.One thing I do believe strongly though;Working from home right now, during a global pandemic, is NOT the same thing as normal remote work.I feel that this is getting lost in too many discussions lately.This week, we're taking a look at how remote work in 2020 is NOT normal remote work.  We'll explore a few of the unique challenges that 2020 has presented to remote employees and teams, and outline a few concrete steps you can take to better adapt to working remotely in 2020.Buffer's State of Remote Work 2020Remote Work in 2020 is Not Normal - Will We Evaluate It Fairly?Great Books To Learn More About Effective Remote WorkRemote: Office Not RequiredIt Doesn't Have To Be Crazy At Work* Some links may be affiliate linksContacthttps://twitter.com/n8ebelhttps://goobar.dev/contact/Thanks for listening devs! 👋Let's Connect--🔔 Find More Developer Content On YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/c/goobario?sub_confirmation=1🙂 Find Me Onlinewebsite ➡ https://goobar.devlinks ➡ https://goobar.dev/links

Hello World
Hello World 👋Welcome to the first episode of the goobar podast; where we talk about building great software and helping others do the same!I am your host, Nate Ebel, and I'm very happy that you're tuning in to this first episode of a project I've wanted to start for quite some time now.In this episode, I introduce the podcast, share the goals and inspiration behind it, and then give you a little background on myself and the experiences I'll be bringing into each episode.What's this podcast about?I feel I've been really fortunate to have great teams, and mentors throughout my career, and a big part of that mentorship has always been the short chats, and all the small interactions throughout our time working together.And that's the idea I want to bring to this podcast; a feeling of connectedness and a sense that someone out there is in your corner if you're ever feeling stuck; which, let's face, we all feel at some time or another.I want to imagine we're sitting down for a quick cup of coffee and just chatting about software development.We might talk about fixing an interesting bug one day, how to become more involved in the developer community, or how to carve out the next step in your career journey.  We'll cover a lot ground as we explore the many different facets of a career in software development.My hope, is that each week we can feel inspired to dream, learn, and create so we can spend our time in rewarding careers doing the work we enjoy, and helping others do the same.Have a question?Have a question for the podcast?  Send in you questions to podcast@goobar.io or reach out to me directly.Contact Natehttps://twitter.com/n8ebelhttps://goobar.dev/contact/Thanks for listening devs! 👋Let's Connect--🔔 Find More Developer Content On YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/c/goobario?sub_confirmation=1🙂 Find Me Onlinewebsite ➡ https://goobar.devlinks ➡ https://goobar.dev/links
