Pandora : What’s the best bit of advice you’ve been given as an entrepreneur?

Answer by Tim Westergren, Founder of Pandora:

Learn public speaking.

Of all the skills that an entrepreneur can have, I think the ability to convey an idea or opportunity, with confidence, eloquence and passion is the most universally useful skill.  Whether you’re pitching a group of investors, rallying your employees, selling a customer, recruiting talent, addressing consumers, or doing a press tour, the ability to deliver a great talk is absolutely invaluable.  And it is perhaps THE most under-recognized and under-nurtured skill.

Software Engineer

What happens to software engineers who don’t climb the corporate ladder and stay as engineers?

Answer by Harry Glaser:

They become … Unix Beards!

(Just kidding.)

They become better, more experienced, more sought-after, better-rewarded engineers. Some of the best big tech companies recognize this explicitly in their career ladders. At Google, for example, there is a separate job ladder for “individual contributors”, which culminates (or once did) at “Google Fellow”. An engineer at this level is commensurate with a Vice President, and has similar high-level impact — even moreso on questions of technology, architecture and technical direction. I believe there are similar positions at Facebook, Apple, etc. (more…)

How did WhatsApp team go about building app on multiple platforms cheaply?

Answer by Sayo Oladeji:

As much as I agree that scaling the backend is a very challenging thing. Android, S40 and S60 are particularly difficult to program. WP7/8 are relatively easier. There’s a reverse engineered source of the WhatsApp Android client online; take a look at the number of com.whatsapp classes and you’ll get a feel of the enormous work that this guys have done (humorously, this kind of explains why Facebook has never been able to put out a decent Android app).

On the client-side, you have to deal with fragmentation issues as your users won’t be running the same OS version, screen sizes and color depth, hardware, memory, processor, etc. Things even get messier when they’ll have to run your app on tabs. Some devices won’t even allow HTTPS out-of-the-box.

Now take Nokia S40, you have FT (full touch), NT (non touch), TT (touch and type); on S60 you have FT and TT; on Android you have FT, NT, TT (and then you also have tabs to cater for); on BB you also have FT, NT, TT (and you also have the PlayBook tab to cater for), on iOS you are free from fragmentation to an extent but there comes the iPad and then iPad mini which you also have to cater for; its only on Windows Phone that you’re somewhat free from fragmentation since Win Tabs run Win 8 and not WP8.

Samsung S4 Gold iPhone 5S Gold

Samsung Announces Galaxy S5 Gold Edition, Launch on April 11, 2014

Samsung just unveiled its latest primary smartphone the Galaxy S5 and besides it is waterproof, it comes in four colors – black, white, blue and gold.

Apple introduced the gold iPhone 5s last Fall which guided Samsung to react up with a special edition gold S4 edition, but now it plans to sell the gold S5 globally commencing in April 11, 2014.

The gold iPhone 5s was a massive hit with buyers demand far outpacing supply. We’ll have to hang on till Spring to see if the gold S5 encourages a similar enthusiasm with fans, but so far it’s drawing more comparisons to a band-aid than an Apple product.

Should we use short names (e.g. calculator, flashlight, emoji) or should we use keyword rich names instead?

Answer by Christo Thomas Jose:

Please note that there are thousands of Apps with the same purpose, like Calculators, Flashlight etc. So, it is not easy to get the attention of the customers only via the simple name.
In order to keep your customers buzzing about your app, you should use a special feature that is only in your app along with the app name.
For eg: Your app is a Camera app which includes numerous Filters and it is Free. So, you can name it as Camera (Special Filter Name) Free.
You can add 100 keywords later in the keyword category. So, there is no need to add Keyword rich names.
Just remember, how Farmville, Skype etc are doing business. They don’t have any keywords in their App names,  but just good use of App Store Optimization.
