Why go to college?

Why bother going to college?  If you want to write code for a living then just do it.  If you are of the best...then you'll easily land a job at a tech company....

...keeping the job and maintaining a good life/work balance...that is a whole 'nother issue.

Real-world app CodeSprint


Dear Interviewstreet Participant, 

Hope you're doing awesome! We've an exciting contest this week - Build a real-world application (mobile or a web app) for the US govt.
As you might already know, we're working with the US Govt to develop an application that promotes equal pay for women - While the link is already live, we still decided to conduct a special sprint for 8 hours this Saturday (12 noon - 8pm PT) to showcase the apps that are built in this timeline to our entire developer community along with special prizes from Interviewstreet for the one that receives maximum votes! (Here's an example web-app)
You can have a look at the problem statement, develop ideas and start hacking at Saturday 12 noon to show the world what you've built. You'll be given a bare unix EC2 instance to deploy your web app. For programmers designing mobile apps, we're working with Pieceable to display your code in an iPhone simulator. 
Brainstorm ideas/prototypes and lets hack this Saturday at 12 noon (add to your calendar). We'll be on IRC (#codesprint) during the time. Interestingly, the devs at interviewstreet are also going to build an app. 

As a request, can you please let us know here if you will/may be participating? Look forward to seeing you there. If you've any queries, you can contact us at

Previous favorite was prodigal son. So easy to be the jealous sibling--until I became a parent and understood.
New favorite bible story: one about apostles briefly see jesus, et al in mountain and think to build three tents and wait. God says get out and live.

In like a lion and out like a lamb. What am I?

Every generation has a story. Do you want to be the person who was somthing or the person who did something?
An abundance of entitlement with a smattering of self pity and nary a sign of conflict resolution...
