A few months ago Moisés heard about Masterbranch at a tech event and since then he has become one of our most active users. We asked him if he’d like to share his experience with other developers, and he accepted :)
By Moisés Maciá, Senior Developer at ideup!
Hi all, I am Moisés and I am a Senior Developer currently working for ideup! in Madrid. I like PHP, Symfony2, MySQL, RabbitMQ, amongst others, and also Internet applications.
I really love the idea of Masterbranch, and I am here to share my experience.
It solves a problem for lots of us
Masterbranch solves a common problem that we, software developes, have: your printed resume- or even your LinkedIn profile- does not reflect your real programming skills. Why not? Because putting together *all* your experience in just a couple of pages it’s kind of imposible (and a pain in the ass).
With Masterbranch I can avoid having my identity spread over many places, plus others can see my experience, skills and technologies at first glance. In addition, it’s very easy to set up a profile: all you need to do is connecting your repositories- git in my case-, and Masterbranch does the dirty work for you syncing and merging it all under one account.
We have fun at work
In my company we all have accounts in Masterbranch and, since our private repos are automatically synced to Masterbranch, we got DevScore points every time we make new commits.
Also, every week, with every sprint, we have a real battle to see who wins the MVP- Most Valuable Programmer- and whose DevScore is higher. It’s really fun. It’s like an extra reward for your work.
I can make that companies see a complete profile of me
Without a tool like Masterbranch a recruiter can find my LinkedIn, read my resume ore even see my Github or Bitbucket accounts with some of my projects. But this is only a small fraction of my actual work as a developer.
With Masterbranch I can also integrate with other dev sites- like StackOverflow- and, most important of all, I can add my experience in private projects, which is my day-to-day work. This way my profile becomes much more appealing to companies because it’s also more complete.
I recommend using Masterbranch to all developers to build a solid online identity. For me, Masterbranch is the LinkedIn for developers and it is adapted to my needs.
