We wanted to do something special for our Bogotá office this year. Few months ago we were thinking about having art on our walls, so we started to look for artists that could bring our idea to a reality.

Luckily for us we get in touch with Ricardo Zokos, a very well known and respected artist. You can see most of his work at his instagram account https://www.instagram.com/zokoslab/.

Recently we get a Raspberry Pi 3 and we want it to use it for our TV Dashboard. We wanted to change it because the browser in the Smart TV was very slow and buggy. Now we have a browser running in Linux more faster and stable than the TV.

Here is what we need to to set it up:

As developers, we live learning new programming languages constantly either for work or personal projects. Depending on new technologies, we start to wonder which one is better than others and decide to make a change, in my case i believe that Python with Django is fast, clean and easy to scale so i felt to free to switch to it. Now i am working everyday using it and thinking it was the best choice.

So which programming language do you identify the most with?

​Why don't disturb a developer in action

​Why don't disturb a developer in action

Many times we found similar situations where a friend, familiar, work partner or pet interrupt a developer. When some people try to talk with a programmer doesn’t interrupt only your work, interrupts your brain.

Sometimes the connection between him and the code is total; all parts of his ody are connected 100% with an issue, and he needs to take all of his energy and apply it.

​Some activities require more brain power than others

The 3 different types of mental resources (below) require different mental load. Visual requires more than motor, and cognitive requires the most mental load of all.

Motor (least effort): pressing buttons, moving the mouse, etc.

Visual: see things and take them in

Cognitive (most effort): thinking, remembering, making decisions

“One of the best ways to create a good user experience: reduce cognitive load.”

A good experience is the result of reducing mental resources—especially cognitive load.

The question often arises about whether to have a long page or a series of smaller pages you have to click to navigate through. Scrolling is a motor skill—it takes less brain power and is less tiring than clicking through smaller screens where each click requires a cognitive process to think about what to do.
