A New Season
Last month, I decided to work in a company as an SDET (rundown of my initial thoughts: link). That means ‘Software Developer in Test.’ However, as I went through the training, there were some issues presented to me: I found incorrect training parameters. In the 1st 3 weeks, it was mostly review: I literally only learned 1 new concept and 2 new lines of code, and I was expected to interview for a professional role in early October, 2021. I did not believe I could give my client a superior service. At this point, I wish them well, but I am pursuing other goals.
Now that the old season is done, a new sustainable app: Algorithms.
More recently, I started attempting EN.605.621, Foundations of Algorithms. Much of the training data is technical: as it should be. But as second World War’s participants proved, Computer Scientists, today, need more than technical skill: they need righteous ethics. On Bit Jet Kit media, I, Bit Jet Kit, try my best to integrate faith with reason. My goal is to prove the courage and grit generations of leaders at every level of society have proven improves lives: it is purpose-driven. So, today, in the morning on September the 6th, 2021, I started a new Android app: Algorithms.
Read on the technical specifications.
This app will run on devices running Android versions as early as 5.0, Lollipop. Its offerings will range from tutorials on the fundamentals of algorithms, the history of algorithms from the latest research on ethics, to eventually an in-app Java IDE that shall allow the user to implement algorithms, and then tests to evaluate your knowledge of Computer Science related to this content.
This is a reflection on ancient history.
In ancient Philippi, the brothers of the Christian Apostle Paul of Tarsus received a letter from him. To Paul’s brothers, Paul (KJV) stated, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Phil, 4:8). As the Nazis proved, science is not pure: it can be corrupted. Science’s mathematical forms are the highest ideal non-ethical statements can be aspired to display. But ordering scientific inquiry to help your fellow man by government, hospital, university, or school is the art we can all instill the next generation’s hope with, today.
I hope you check back, occasionally.
