  • Can I become a software developer?
    Diego Carleone
    Marine principle states: if you find physically suitable man or woman, you can make him or her a unique fighter, provided them the right training and education. Programming is just the same skill as playing guitar, swimming or riding a bike. People are not born bikers.

    When I see my friends, who work twice as hard as I do and get four times less money, I start the following conversation:

    - Would you like to work as a programmer? You’re really smart. Perhaps, you are simply

    1. The best is the enemy of the good

    Being best means being better than the others, exceed them and be different. You cannot become the best doing what everyone else does. You need your own way.

    You cannot be best in everything: while you study everything, someone specializes on one thing. The one way to become the best is choosing a one very certain specialization and become a world-class specialist in it.

    When I retrained my friends to be programmers, I noticed an interesting thing. People that already worked somewhere were learning very gladly. And the more experience they had out of IT, the more diligently they studied. Those, who were college students, sometimes just didn’t care.

    Having talked to working people and the students I noticed, that students believe in “magical employment” waiting for them right after they graduate.

    Now, for those who haven’t yet gotten

  • JavaRush – learning programming in Java
    Diego Carleone
    How about an entirely new way to study programming and get an education? That doesn’t look like anything you’ve seen before. How about learning, where you have an aim, means and result?
    I am happy to present you the new online course to learn programming in Java.

    1. Training is an online-game

    You take a task, execute it and get a reward. I think it is clear and common for you. Tasks are most various: reading code, solving tasks, videos-lessons, correction of errors...

  • Roadmap of a Java Developer
    Diego Carleone
    A friend of mine was wondering why developers are always so happy. The answer she came with was simple and surprising: they do what they like and earn big money. Welcome to the world of software developers!

    Software developer’s salary

    I would like to tell you about developers’ salaries. How the land lies with salaries, where you should go work, and where you shouldn’t. If you are not a developer and try to puzzle it out on your own, you may get a rather controversial data. ...

    I always told my students that computer programming is easy and interesting. Now you can make sure of it by yourself.

    The goal of the course
    is to enjoy studying, have fun and gain real programming skills in Java, which will help you to get a job as a software developer. That’s why there are many practical tasks in the course. Task complexity grows graduallyfrom simple to the most complex ones.

  • I am the best

    1. The best is the enemy of the good

    Being best means being better than the others, exceed them and be different. You cannot become the best doing what everyone else does. You need your own way.

    You cannot be best in everything: while you study everything, someone specializes on one thing. The one way to become the best is choosing a one very certain specialization and become a world-class specialist in it.






    If you dance ballet since you are five and work 8 hours a day there will always be someone who does it since three and 10 hours a day. By the time you are both fifteen his experience will exceed yours by 5000 hours. Plus, there are geniuses, every hour of whose work equals to your three. And there are the best tutors in the world, and you are, for example, a self-taught person.

    The only way to become the best without having you own way is working more than everyone else, be talented, have good teachers and rich parents. But that already isn’t “like everyone”, is it?

    Yet even the fastest and the most hard-working horse cannot outrun a car. You need your own strategy, your unique plan to become the best without sacrificing everything.

    2. It’s a hard work becoming the best

    There will always be someone who began earlier. Someone had rich parents, someone studied in the world’s best university. Someone got a job with his parents help. Don’t fret. It happens. It’s called different starting conditions. Yet people like these are minority, the world is filled with people who succeeded due to “thinking outside the box”, hardworking and the desire to learn all the time.

    Life is like playing card game. Everyone can win having all trumps on hand, but professional wins no matter what cards he has. He diminishes the trumps’ influence with his skill.

    No one comprehends it as fully as professional sportsmen do. Many of them only have a few years to grasp their chance and become successful.

    3. There is always someone who works more then you






    Such people are numerous. There are workaholics, perfectionists and people who simply love what they do. True, many of them sacrifice family, friends, and are eager to work 80 hours a week. Work is their life. That is not the way for you. But those people are still perfectly capable of pushing you down the career ladder. You are not able to spend 6 month on business trips in order to get promotion, but they are.

    An average Chinese student is more laborious then European one, and an employee from China is eager to do your job for quarter the price.

    Working a lot is not a key to success, but working little is the key to failure.

    4. Unfriendly environment






    There are so little places in the world where working hard and honest is encouraged. If you study a lot in college, spend all of your free time in library and pass exams on your own, you’ll be considered a nerd. And if you “had fun all the semester and passed” or, in other words, “beat the system”, well done!

    It’s hard to strive for success when society hates rich and successful people. Hates and envies them. Poor people, having greedily fallen upon money, start boasting it. It’s true that rich people behave differently: Bill Gates can wear a 10 bucks shirt, ‘cause with it or without it he is still Bill Gates.

    5. To sum up

    Still businessmen are the ones creating workspaces. Hired workers’ salary is the result of business competition for best workers. The more businesses there are in the country, the higher the salaries are. There is a huge rivalry on “work more” path, this way no longer works. You need to find another.

    You need to love your life and your time. Money is just the instrument which makes you independent financially. If you are financially independent, you may do what you want and not do what you don’t want.

    Be careful with “sacrifices” on the road to becoming best. Do not sacrifice the most important things: family, friends, health, job you love. Being financially successful in 50 without having family, friends, health and hating your job is no success. It’s a failure.

    An offer

    We have an interesting offer for you to be financially successful and not sacrifice all important things. Would you like to become a Java programmer? Software developer is an interesting and promising profession, and Java developer is also well paid.

    Unfortunately, they don’t give you real programming knowledge in colleges, so we created JavaRush - an online course to learn programming in Java.
