In term of writing code, people have many motivations and way to do it. One can be money, the other can be hobby. If you’re professional, you might work for some company who hire you to create software. In my view, there’s two kind of people. First type is a people that works like a factory worker by cranking as many different software as possible. The other, is people who build the code from the bottom up. I called it code crafting.
When I joined my current employer, my reason was to learn something new. I have never work for the big enterprises throughout my career. My only experience dealing with enterprise is when I was creating software for big banks and not facing customers.
It turns out that I, indeed, I learn something new. The one that I really noticed is about hatred. It happens pretty often. And this one, convert me from perceiving type of person to judging type of person.

BlackBerry 10 is known to be one of the most open platforms out there right now. The Native SDK is available for all three operating systems, including GNU/Linux. I’m one of the GNU/Linux fans; Linux had introduced me to the world of UNIX and POSIX. Because QNX is POSIX-compliant, the development tools play well with the Linux environment.
If you’re a fan of Lord of The Rings, you’ll be familiar with inscription above. It’s One Ring inscription written by Dark Lord of Mordor, Sauron in Black Speech written in Elvish script (tengwar annatar) fascinates me the most because I have huge interests in human languages. Fantasy languages included.
My mother tongue isn’t English, it’s not even Bahasa Indonesia, which is the national language of my country. It’s Javanese, a language spoken by people where I’m originated. I’m now able to utter English and a little Japanese words albeit being imperfect. And sometimes tweets in strange English and Osakaben.
I heard a few of Developers from BBM, and from forum, that they are sometimes not able to access the simulator from the Native SDK (Momentics) IDE. I experienced it myself, and found out how to resolve the issue. The issue is caused by the VMNet adapter on auto-configure the virtual network adapter for ipv6.
