Sometimes the ad is just fake because they already have a hire.

2018-03-14 09:46:06 UTC  

For instance, to get work visas, the company needs to prove they can't find competent candidates in the country; they need to publish the ad for a while for the citizens, before claiming they need to hire somebody outside the country.

2018-03-14 09:47:21 UTC  

Other times it's internal company policy, because they're promoting somebody, or hiring somebody's relative; they need to "give a chance" to external candidates before the internal ones.

So yeah, next time you see an ad that requires everything, from sweeping the floor to negotiating international contracts, from giving tech support for laptops to writing kernels and compilers, it's probably a fake ad.

2018-03-14 09:51:48 UTC  

this wasn't, they specifically called me about it to recruit me

2018-03-14 09:53:06 UTC  

I read the ad and talked to a friend of mine who works in the same building, who actually rents office space from them

2018-03-14 09:53:13 UTC  

he just said "you don't want to work there"

2018-03-14 13:59:26 UTC  

I have 3x rpi2, and these can essentially be hotswapped even though they're rpi3b+

2018-03-14 15:32:41 UTC  

I have two 3's and they've been great

2018-03-14 15:32:45 UTC

pls odroid ftw but rpis are so easy to set up and give to other people for set top boxes and storage

2018-03-14 17:32:49 UTC  

since everyone makes software for it

2018-03-14 21:47:09 UTC  

actually though, has anyone here tried out sailfish OS?

2018-03-14 21:47:18 UTC  

If so is it any good?

2018-03-14 22:03:04 UTC  

they're certainly doing some good work on the stack

2018-03-14 22:03:10 UTC  

I've wanted to give it a go

2018-03-14 22:04:04 UTC

2018-03-14 22:35:45 UTC  

Happy Pi Day everyone.

2018-03-14 22:38:44 UTC

Neat, but I don't own a smartphone

2018-03-14 23:28:39 UTC  

there's clearly at least 2+ people in here who have heard of it

2018-03-14 23:28:44 UTC

2018-03-14 23:28:55 UTC
