Don't wait till the end of your degree to start interviewing is my advice. Some throwaway interviews in jobs similar to the ones you actually want is useful as you can use the time in school to research the gaps in your knowledge that you got asked in those interviews for future ones. And if you get offered a job pending degree completion at least you have something to go straight into, takes a load off your mind.

Working part time during the last year of my degree was pretty neat, transitioned to full-time as soon as school allowed.

Oh, I'm not. Once my current unit finishes I will have a "stamp of approval" from the school and they will endorse me. Good idea though for throwaway interviews as practice for the job I actually want.


Problem is I don't know who I want to work for. Just want to work for a company that has good environment, friendly people, and willing to teach/train a JR dev.

Had a result today.

So a while back I bought a Xiaomi Black Shark. It's a brutal fast phone. I got it for around 50% retail price at that time which was sweet. It's very fast. Any way the only small bummer was it was on Oreo, whilst the cutting edge phones (which this is in all honesty) were just getting pie. As usual I didn't check this before purchasing, and searching didn't fill me with hope. I thought once again I'd bought a phone destined to be stuck on the os it came with.

I woke up this morning and the phone says it has a JoyUI update. This is what they call the os for the Black Shark. It was 1.3gb update which sounded kinda fat.

Turns out it was Pie. I was sooooooo damn happy. No fuss, no rooting, nothing. So now I got a mega powerhouse phone running the latest os.

Android 9 Pie isn't the newest. Android 10 just released but honestly 9 isn't much different than 10 so you're pretty set

Haha I'm always one step behind

I do have faith in Xiaomi though. Much more than I had in Oppo.

There are a lot of things I like much better. It looks awesome too

beat me to it

10 has some minor caveat. Nothing special. 9 was a nice boost though.

Pretty sure it'll come because there's a Black Shark 2 which shares the same OS and is the flagship.

Not that fussed though.
