How to Get Fired Fast, AI Discrimination, and Ukraine-Russia Digital Conflict

Last Week in Plain English
How to Get Fired Fast, AI Discrimination, and Ukraine-Russia Digital Conflict
By In Plain English • Issue #19 • View online
This week, we begin by looking at five successful strategies for developers to increase their productivity while working on difficult projects. We also examine the digital battleground that has been established between Ukraine and Russia, as well as its growing significance.
By the way, have you ever tried getting fired quickly? This is exactly what author Bassem Allani looks into this week in their piece ‘How to Get Fired as a Software Engineer, Fast.’
And while AI claims to make our lives easier, when it comes to predicting crimes, how much of its supposed impartiality can be trusted? How much of it is inflected with prejudice against the poor?
Last but not least, we are pleased to announce our latest initiative - a job page for developers seeking jobs and for recruiters looking to hire new talent.
If you’re a developer looking for work, take a moment to sign up here and get free access to job opportunities. Alternatively, if you’re a company looking for new developers, partner with us to post your jobs on our page.
We have also included a featured job for our newsletter readers which you can find below.
All this and more in this week’s edition of Last Week in Plain English.
