Huawei Ascend P7 Review, ROOT, camera shutter sound disable

The Huawei Ascend P7 is an attempt by Huawei to put their products in a premium segment, close to the HTC One, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the iPhone. I’m writing this, because maybe some people out there are curious about the phone or how to root it. As far as I’ve got it figured out multiple phones are sold with that name, I got the L10. These first couple of days I’ve been happy with it :)

Rock Fashion 2014 (Kolding Storcenter)

Rock Fashion 2014 happened this weekend and I’ve had the honor of being a part of the show again. This year I have not spent close to the same amount of time behind my camera as other years and I was basically the video crews sidekick.

Rock Fashion is a fashion show where the stores of a shopping mall in Kolding get to present their collections, usually for the upcoming winter season, on 100 models that walk the corridors of the mall, while musicians play on the main stage.

Failed Start-Ups and what they learned from it

Recently multiple stories have popped up on Hacker News about failed Start-ups. I think this is amazing, because these brave people enable others to learn from their mistakes.

The ones thought would be nice to share are the one of 99 dresses, My startup failed, and this is what it feels like… and the one of DinnrSeven lessons I learned from the failure of my first startup, Dinnr. Continue reading

Rise, my Blog! (necromancy ahead!)

I feel like I left this blog out to die. To be eaten by the hounds (I’ve seen the Sherlock episode about the HOUND of Baskerville).

I see my views declining and my widget shows: last entry: 2 months ago.

On my German blog I’ve managed to still blog bits and pieces, but overall I’ve been busy working, both as a teacher and on various projects (both video/photo and also coding).

The idea of not always having to blog 1000 words for something to makes sense is very hard to apply to this place for me, because I have blogged some tutorials and articles that actually are professionally relevant to a couple of people I think.

From now on, I will also share shorter articles, but don’t be worried I have some more plugins to be released and snippets to share!

CigTrack defibrilated

So like the other cool kids apps, I thought my pet project deserved a proper landing page. It’s been a while since I’ve actually had time for this project, but it was just too soon to entirely drop it.

The new landing page is built with bootstrap and animatescroll, the picture is one of mine that I took ages ago. I had to tweak the grid system a little to make it work as I imagined, but it wasn’t an obstacle.

cigtrack-info-landing-page-2014

Now live on cigtrack.info.

I’m happy with it, since it appeals much more to people instead of developers and communicates the thoughts behind the project. In hindsight I should have done this as the first step of the entire process ;)

barricades-on-fire

It’s Your Job to Blow up the Barricades Too!

When taking on a job, a project or simply pursuing a goal, you will not face perfect circumstances. Never. That’s why your job includes removing or overcoming barriers and barricades that lay in your way. These things don’t come with the job description or the original demand and it’s up to you to be creative and find a way.

Also, nobody asks if you put the obstacles there yourself, if your competitors or the big bad world did. If you want to make something happen, you better figure out the rules and try to play by them.
