The “Java Life” Rap Music Video

October 5, 2011

Hi frens,

This is a rap music video. I liked it and am sharing with you all. I took the link from Java’s youtube channel. I found it from a tweet by @java. Enjoy! and CODE HARD!

The lyrics is as follows :

The “Java Life”

In the cubicles representin’ for my JAVA homies…
In by nine, out when the deadlines are met, check it.

We code hard in these cubicles
My style’s nerd-chic, I’m a programmin’ freak
We code hard in these cubicles
Only two hours to your deadline? Don’t sweat my technique.

Sippin’ morning coffee with that JAVA swirl.
Born to code; my first words were “Hello World”
Since 95, been JAVA codin’ stayin’ proud
Started on floppy disks, now we take it to the cloud.

On my desktop, JAVA’s what’s bobbin’ and weavin’
We got another winning app before I get to OddEven.
Blazin’ code like a forest fire, climbin’ a tree
Setting standards like I Triple E….

Boot it on up, I use the force like Luke,
Got so much love for my homeboy Duke.
GNU Public Licensed, it’s open source,
Stop by my desk when you need a crash course

Written once and my script runs anywhere,
Straight thuggin’, mean muggin’ in my Aeron chair.
All the best lines of code, you know I wrote ‘em
I’ll run you out of town on your dial-up modem.

We code hard in these cubicles
Me and my crew code hyphy hardcore
We code hard in these cubicles
It’s been more than 10 years since I’ve seen the 404.

Inheriting a project can make me go beeee-serk
Ain’t got four hours to transfer their Framework.
The cleaners killed the lights, Man, that ain’t nice,
Gonna knock this program out, just like Kimbo Slice

I program all night, just like a champ,
Look alive under this IKEA lamp.
I code HARDER in the midnight hour,
E7 on the vending machine fuels my power.

Ps3 to Smartphones, our code use never ends,
JAVA’s there when I beat you in “Words with Friends”.
My developing skills are so fresh please discuss,
You better step your game up on that C++.

We know better than to use Dot N-E-T,
Even Dan Brown can’t code as hard as me.
You know JAVA’s gettin’ bigger, that’s a promise not a threat,
Let me code it on your brain

so you’ll never forget.

We code hard in these cubicles,
it’s the core component…of what we implement.
We code hard in these cubicles,
Straight to your JAVA Runtime Environment.

We code hard in these cubicles,
Keep the syntax light and the algorithm tight.
We code hard in these cubicles,
Gotta use JAVA if it’s gonna run right.

We code hard in these cubicles
JAVA keeps adapting, you know it’s built to last.
We code hard in these cubicles,
Robust and secure, so our swag’s on blast

Only 24 super techies out of 5000 cracked it so far – Techgig’s online coding contest

October 3, 2011

Hi friends,

Just wanted to share something with you. Sorry if you don’t find something about Linux or Java in this post.

I am in a good mood today. It is because I was featured in the’s ad with headline “Only 24 super techies out of 5000 cracked it so far” on today’s (i.e. October 3, 2011) newspaper Times Of India, Mumbai edition, page number 26. I was one of them.

Techgig's super techies

Techgig's super techies

I would not have known it as I live in New Delhi and Delhi’s edition din’t have the same. I came to know about this only someone(Edit : Nanda Kshirsagar) posted on my facebook page The post was like this “Congratulation!!! SUPER TECHIES out OF 5000 ON CODING CONTEST”. I was surprised by the post because I dint have the slightest idea.

I participated in the’s online coding contest few days back. Just wanted to exercise my brain a bit because I had time. I was not too serious while coding. The “Easy” level was solved at once when I wrote the code in “Java” on the editor provided by the website. I din’t even try it on my computer before submitting. But “Medium” level took a while to solve. But finally got it right. And then I did the “Expert” level.

Please comment below on how you liked this post as in this post I am just sharing what I felt. Hoping to get a well paid job soon.

Edit : Thanks “Nanda Kshirsagar” for posting on my facebook page and letting me know.
