This is something I faced personally and had a really fun (read hard) time resolving. Hope it helps out someone out there!

“Please Don't Learn to Code!“ says Jeff Atwood, and I think he is right!


For someone who has been in the industry for 30 strong years, a statement like “Please Don't Learn to Code” would sound absolutely far-fetched, right?

Nevertheless, when you do go through the logic behind the statement, you will understand.

Though an old one, but this article does it nicely and tells you why people “those-who-don’t-know-how-to-code-and-don’t-need-to-know-it-either” should, yes, stay away from coding.

Moreover, experience and maturity in this industry will teach you the absolute fact "The Best Code is No Code At All"!

I have been a fan of Jeff Attwood for long, and he has done his lot by bringing the websites Stack Overflow and the Stack Exchange Network in conception, for the code community.

LEAKED! Galaxy S III mini specs

Ok, let me be honest. This was totally expected as mini versions are fast becoming a rage amongst stiff smartphone competitors (cough..cough..you know who)

(Image courtesy androidegis)

The S3 mini follows in the wake of the Madly successful mammoth S3, the elder sibling.

Following are the almost final specifications of the S3 mini--- this is getting unveiled in Germany today (11th Oct 2012)

Specs follow -

Samsung I8190 Galaxy S III mini -

- 4" Samsung Galaxy S III mini device;
- Super AMOLED with WVGA resolution;
- ST-Ericsson U8420 chipset (dual-core CPU @ 1GHz / 1GB RAM)
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out-of-box
- Main snapper - 5MP unit with LED flash+ front VGA camera;
- MAY even support 720p/1080p recording!!

Ah.. this will be interesting.. People going after the iPhone only because of the size factor will surely be tempted to jump the Android bandwagon now (more lawsuits anyone?).

Good going Samsung! Let’s hope you DON’T release the S4 any soon or it could be the proverbial ‘biting your own A$$’!

Update - Latest on GSMArene
