First session on Java OOP

A note for a technical presenter. πŸ§‘‍πŸ’»πŸ‘©‍πŸ’»
As shared before, I am a presenter for the Java academy for beginners.
I am happy that our JUG community is so active.
I am so proud to deliver a session on Java OOP, this time in Bulgarian πŸ‡§πŸ‡¬, my native tongue.

It felt strange to find words to translate a native English πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ to my language, but also very satisfying.

One thing challenging for every person who wants to teach fundamentals is how low level or high level to go with.
Sometimes you can’t know the level of your audience in advance and you, as a presenter, need to take crucial decisions on how to structure the lecture.

Presenting on-line introduces another layer of complexity.
Delays, text size and switching between presenting and coding are some of them.
Nevertheless, the point is to improve based on the feedback of your students.
Do more live coding πŸ’» examples and ask questions, try to make it as interactive and fun as possible. I know it is Java language which is very complex if you need to go with every single detail, but make it fun and enjoy the process.

To forget is the ultimate sign of lack of focus. You need to focus on what you do to be able to achieve the next level.

Twitter is a dead long live twitter

 Corporate rebranding takes time. It is carefully calibrated and represents the new directions of the company. Unless it is Twitter. Then the change can happen in a matter of a week. The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
