Remote work is here to stay: after being forced to work from home in 2020, it seems we’ve sort of realized it’s actually fine to skip the commute and join the company meeting from the comfort of your sofa. Or is it? While remote work certainly sounds easy and laid-back, it’s not just about remembering to unmute yourself on the Zoom call: remote brings its own challenges, and if you’re aiming to get hired for a remote or hybrid role, you have to get comfortable with it, and show you’re capable of giving your best in an online environment and aligning with the company and with your coworkers.

Have you been thinking about switching careers? You wouldn’t be the first: about half of the workforce is considering a job change, and 20% have already taken the leap in 2022, joining professional fields with growing demand, such as Tech.

From the moment I realized that math was the language universe used to reveal itself, I knew I wanted to be a physicist. Physics had an elegant and enigmatic way of answering the questions I had as a child, but due to the lack of infrastructure and opportunities for scientists in Nepal, I was considering studying abroad. But my decision was presented by a stack of reasons why I shouldn't. So I did what any right-minded math enthusiast would do: join engineering. After getting into engineering school, it slowly transitioned into the love of technology.

Ah, the million dollar question. There’s a lively debate around this topic that never seems to be settled once and for all. Companies will tell you one thing. Developers will defend something else. Designers will have different opinions depending on their experience... but the short answer is yes. If you want to know why, and how deep you should go into the learning rabbit hole, keep reading.

We know learning online brings a lot of questions: Will I be able to keep up the pace being at home? Will I finish the course? Will Ironhack be worth it? We know learning online is not easy, but Ironhack’s live remote programs have very little in common with the traditional online courses. How would you feel if you could have all the benefits of an in-person course (the teachers, the classmates, hands on projects, etc.) plus the benefit of being wherever you want to be, every single day? Our Education Team has spent years developing and refining our virtual classroom, and today we want to show you how with this Remote Student Guide!

With more than 500 million downloads on the Google Play Store alone, and over 160 million active users each day, Snapchat caught the attention of mobile app and UI designers. What is it that this app has that compels an average user to spend anywhere between 25 to 30 minutes in the app every day?
