A digital personal assistant

Don’t you wish you had a personal assistant who could whisper in your ear every time you meet a colleague and can’t remember their name? Or who could remind you what the heck you talked about at last week’s meeting? How about a secretary who would notify you when you need to get in touch with someone, or who could even alert you when someone hasn’t responded to your email?

bar
We can all dream of the perfect personal assistant, but in the meantime there are a lot of (increasingly intelligent) tools out there to help you keep track of the seemingly zillions of contacts you must maintain to run your business. Cloze is such a tool; it’s the “no-work” way to consolidate all of the information you have about your contacts into one place. It’s “smarter relationship management” for companies with long lists of prospects, clients, and colleagues to stay in touch with.

Merging info into one place

Cloze is intelligent software that automatically merges a wide array of information into one place. When you review your contacts on Cloze, you’ll see not only their email address and phone number, but also a log of all of your interactions, including emails, documents, and phone calls you’ve exchanged, notes from meetings you’ve attended together, and personal reminders. You’ll even be able to see what your contact is up to on social media sites, as Cloze syncs up with LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.

Besides amalgamating that mess of information you previously had scattered across multiple email accounts, spreadsheets, and sticky notes, Cloze is smart enough to learn to prioritize the contacts are the most important to you, and to remind you when it’s time to reach out.

The search feature allows you to “search for contacts the way you think.” You can look for techs at IBM, customers in Boston, or people who attended the April board meeting. Contacts can be searched and sorted by person, by company, or by meeting. Instead of displaying your contacts alphabetically, Cloze learns to arrange them by importance, and by how frequently you contact them.

Cloze helps you manage and take action

The fact that Cloze keeps track of your meetings is a particularly helpful feature. Cloze creates briefing documents that include notes, action items, documents and emails you’ve exchanged with attendees so that you have context and reminders for next week’s meeting.

It doesn’t matter if you’re using your smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer, because Cloze syncs them together on its secure, encrypted cloud.

The free account comes with a smart inbox, a contact manager, and a social media manager that optimizes your social feeds by rearranging them in order of importance. The free account also syncs your email, social, computer, and cell phone contacts.

For $13.33 per month you can get a Pro account, which, in addition to everything you get in the free bundle, also gives you a calendar and a call history, syncs with your Evernote, enriches your contacts by finding additional information, and actively reminds you when it’s time to contact someone. Cloze even lets you know when someone hasn’t responded to your email so you can follow up.

So ditch the spreadsheets and save yourself the headache of data entry. Cloze is a smarter way to manage your endless contact list.

Vaulteq: A modern safe deposit box for your digital info

(TECH NEWS) Vaulteq will soon launch to protect all of your passwords, digital information, and you can’t break into it, even if you set it on fire.

Curing password amnesia

Remembering the passwords to the millions of different online accounts you have, can be impossible; and the “remember password” option, isn’t really secure, shared computer or not.

I know I personally use the “forgot password” option to alleviate my password amnesia; but it takes up a lot of unnecessary time and effort. That ultimately leaves us with very few password protection options, until Vaulteq came along to revolutionize the way we manage our passwords.

bar
Vaulteq is an easy-to-use, extremely reliable, physical vault that is capable of protecting most of your valuable digital assets.

Plug it in and go

To get started, all you have to do is plug the Vaulteq into your home network, and download the app. Once you’re logged in, you choose one strong password, and Vaulteq will automatically fill it in to your apps and webpages. The use of one password, makes it easy to remember, and more secure, since there aren’t a bunch of different passwords floating around.

But the protection doesn’t stop there. Along with protecting your password, Vaulteq protects your digital wallet too. No matter where you go, you will have secure and constant access to your credit and debit cards, receipts, Bitcoin wallet, and PayPal.

What about your digital records on your laptop?

Like your driver’s licenses, bills, and bank statements; they need protection too. Vaulteq understands that, and allows users to store, organize and browse all of your important documents!

What’s even better is its compatibility and military strength memory. iPhones, Androids, and Windows phones are included, along with extensions for Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.

The memory is waterproof, temperature-proof, shock proof, and x-ray proof, and comes encrypted with AES-256 and two factor authentication.

A modern safe deposit box for your digital info

Essentially, Vaulteq is a more secure, digitized, and modernized safe deposit box for your digital information.

Safer than relying on your computer to remember your passwords, and a lot more convenient than using “forgot password”, Vaulteq has hit the nail on the head with meeting our password management needs.

The price for this handy, military grade device, is tbd, but if you go to their site and drop your email info, you can be one of the first to find out!

Daily Coding Problem keeps you sharp for coding interviews

(CAREER) Coding interviews can be pretty intimidating, no matter your skill level, so stay sharp with daily practice leading up to your big day.

Whether you’re in the market for a new coding job or just want to stay sharp in the one you have, it’s always important to do a skills check-up on the proficiencies you need for your job. Enter Daily Coding Problem, a mailing list service that sends you one coding problem per day (hence the name) to keep your analytical skills in top form.

One of the founders of the service, Lawrence Wu, stated that the email list service started “as a simple mailing list between me and my friends while we were prepping for coding interviews [because] just doing a couple problems every day was the best way to practice.”

Now the service offers this help for others who are practicing for interviews or for individuals needing to just stay fresh in what they do. The problems are written by individuals who are not just experts, but also who aced their interviews with giants like Amazon, Google, and Microsoft.

So how much would a service like this cost you? Free, but with further tiers of features for additional money. Like with all tech startups, the first level offers the basic features such as a single problem every day with some tricks and hints, as well as a public blog with additional support for interviewees. However, if you want the actual answer to the problem, and not just the announcement that you incorrectly answered it, you’ll need to pony up $15 per month.

The $15 level also comes with some neat features such as mock interview opportunities, no ads, and a 30 day money back guarantee. For those who may be on the job market longer, or who just want the practice for their current job, the $250 level offers unlimited mock interviews, as well as personal guidance by the founders of the company themselves.

Daily Coding Problem enters a field with some big players with a firm grasp on the market. Other services, like InterviewCake, LeetCode, and InterviewBit, offer similar opportunities to practice mock interview questions. InterviewCake offers the ability to sort questions by the company who typically asks them for that individual with their sights targeted on a specific company. InterviewBit offers referrals and mentorship opportunities, while LeetCode allows users to submit their own questions to the question pool.

If you’ve really got your eye on the prize of receiving that coveted job opportunity, Daily Coding Problem is a great way to add another tool in your tool box to ace that interview.

Practice for coding interviews, live with another human

(CAREER) Looking to practice coding interviews with a real human? Earn yourself a sweet win-win situation with this online solution to acing technical interviews.

technical coding interview

Practicing for interviews with a friend helps prepare you for the real thing. When the time comes, unless y’all seriously slacked off or you got the company totally wrong, you should at least feel comfortable interviewing since you practiced with a pal.

Just about anyone can help you prep for standard interview questions like listing your strengths, weaknesses, and talking about a five-year plan. But when it comes to coding interviews, your friends may not be able to offer as much help if they’re not in the field.

Technical interviews typically include demonstrating not only solid communication, but also CS knowledge, coding, and demonstrable problem solving.

Well, count your blessings and say hello to Pramp, an online platform that helps you practice technical interviews for software engineering roles. Named for the acronym version of “practice makes perfect,” Pramp pairs you with a peer for a live HD video interview practice session.

Personal matching considers experience, education, target companies, practice topics you’d like to cover, preferred programming language, and availability.

You and your peer take turns being the interviewer and interviewee for 30 minutes each. Pramp provides the questions to ask 24 hours prior to the interview, and gives answers as well. There’s even a collaborative real-time code editor to share your work.

Pramp supports twelve programming languages, including C++, Java, and Python. You select multiple programming languages for your interviews.

Once the interviews are over, you provide feedback and rate each other’s performance.

There’s no limit to how many interviews you can participate in, and you can choose your level of anonymity. Pramp will only share what you allow, but if you go the public route, they’ve got a pretty sweet perk…

After a few coding interviews, Pramp assesses your strengths to match you with relevant opportunities. From there, you can schedule a phone screen directly on Pramp with a hiring manager. You don’t even need a resume.

Passing the phone screen gets you an onsite interview with the hiring manager. All that practice sure paid off, huh? You don’t need to install anything to start using Pramp, and mega bonus: it’s is free to use. Check them out now if you’re a prospective employee or employer to get connected with talent.
