Guiding device usage: This App makes it a Snap

If you are a parent you might desire to be aware of what your children are doing on their electronic devices, so that you can provide guidance to help them develop good habits. In that, you would not be alone: "Surveys, including by the Pew Research Center, have found that two-thirds of parents check their children’s digital footprints..."*

Let me cut to the chase. Serafino Software™ is offering a product called Snap Screen™ which will take pictures of what is on your children's displays at somewhat random times and sends them to you to help you be aware of what they are doing so that you can provide guidance to help them develop good habits. This way, they can know that what they are doing could be observed any time Snap Screen™ is running. But, it also saves you time because you won't have to be there watching what they are doing the whole time.

Snap Screen™ does not limit the number of devices to supervise. It supports supervising from the web and currently supports supervising computers. Support for supervising mobile devices is hopefully coming soon.

I know that money doesn't grow on trees, so we are offering the Standard Edition, which supports up to 1,000 screen snaps per month, for free. You can try the app with no obligation, and see how it works for you:

Since I already know you are going to love it ;) you can remove the monthly snap limit and subscribe to the Premium edition for only $5 per month. I feel that's a small price to pay to know you are helping provide guidance about usage of electronic devices for your family.

Once again, here is the web page to get started. Let me know if you have any difficulty. Please connect to start supervising and subscribe to the premium edition now:

The Invasion of the Developer Commandos™

I. Why Deploy Commandos? It's hard to find the best people to solve difficult problems. By deploying Developer Commandos™, you can get great software developed without needing to figure out how to find the software developers. II. What are Developer Commandos? Unlike an old fashioned developer, a commando works independently. They manage themselves so you won't need to. III. How Can You Deploy Commandos? A. Create a Project Use a project host like GitHub to create a shared workspace online. Commandos will be able to contribute to your software project through this workspace. B. Obtain Incentives Use a cryptocurrency exchange like Coinbase to purchase an amount of a cryptocurrency such as Ether. You will be able to use this cryptocurrency to provide an incentive for commandos. C. Post Opportunities Use a bounty network such as Gitcoin to post bounties.

How (Not) to Handle Different Exceptions

Came across this sample from a certain multi-billion-dollar company, purporting to show how to implement exception handling. I slightly changed a few cosmetic details to make it anonymous.
try { // ... } catch (GeneralException e) { if (e instanceof SpecificExceptionA){ // ... } else if (e instanceof SpecificExceptionB){ // ... } }This is a true actual story--you can't make this stuff up. Yeah, I thought it was pretty hilarious; so I felt like I had to share it.
