How I’m creating a digital mini-guitar

In this article, I’ll try to describe roughly how I’m creating a device, from the idea to realization of the usable prototype.

My name is Dmitriy Dudarev. I develop electronics, and really enjoy creating different portable devices. I also enjoy music. Half a year ago, I borrowed acoustic guitar from my friend, so that I could learn to play it from lessons on Youtube and tablatures. It was a hard work. Maybe, I did something wrong, or tried not so hard, or fine motor skills prevented multiplication in my predecessors’ community. In any case, I couldn’t achieve anything but sounds of raspy strings. My resentment was strengthened by constant string detune. And others didn’t really enjoy much listening my uneven Nothing else matters for thousand times.
But, going through all these tortures, I haven’t forgotten the main rule of electronics engineer. If something exists, you can put microcontroller there. Or, at least, make a portable electronic modification.

The benefits of a great social media strategy include increased brand awareness, customer loyalty, quality leads, and increased sales.

However, these kinds of results are not easy to achieve.

How To Find Your First Client As A Freelance Software Developer in 2020

Views5.7K

In my previous post I mentioned that I had started my freelance career as a senior full stack software engineer. The first problem I faced was clients – it's a pretty tough job to find them. I will show you my trial and error approach to getting a first paid contract. It’ll start from paid ads on social networks, going through content marketing and surprisingly ending on free promotional channels. At each step I will share with you my thoughts, tips and samples. The whole journey from zero to one client took me three weeks.


At the start of the journey I had a portfolio site, several photos for ads, and a lot of optimism. I need to mention that I decided to avoid freelance marketplaces such as UpWork and Freelance.com as their rates are too low. I also avoided TopTal and Turing.com as I don’t want to spend my free time on their several-stage interviews (I've played this game with Google once, and don’t want to do it again).

Here is the translated Russian version of this interview.

The company of speakers at Moscow Python Conf++ 2020 is great, and it's not a good luck but thorough Program Committee's work. But who cares about achievements, it's much more interesting what the speaker thinks about our own questions. Conferences suits good to find it out, get insider information or advice from an experienced developer. But I got an advantage of being in Program Committee so I already asked our speaker Kushal Das some questions.

A unique feature of Kushal's speeches is that he often unveils «secret» ways to break Python code and then shows how to write code so that the NSA can't hack it. At our conference Kushal will tell you how to safely develop and deploy Python code. Of course I asked him about security.
