Change the Game Challenge is an initiative brought by Google Play to inspire teens to build a more inclusive future for mobile gaming. The challenge was made available to girls between 15 and 21 years old attending elementary school. The prizes include get to know Google’s office in São Paulo, have access to online courses and work with Google’s partners. Isn’t that amazing?
Having said that, I wanted so much to contribute to this project!
In the end, I came up with a pretty good solution for a better understanding of game mechanics and goals, applying product thinking and storytelling techniques. I called the Game Design Canvas.
Have you ever wondered about your company’s cultural practices, if they match the image it gives externally and the candidate profiles it attracts?
As a Talent Acquisition in the technology and innovation market, I realize how hard it is for companies to attract and retain talents.

Recently I was given the opportunity to work in a React Native project, as a developer, most of my experience was with React, so I was thrilled with expanding my knowledge in this area.
As I started studying the platform, I got really interested in how to make animations using React Native, and in this blogpost, I am going to share my experience, and create a guide for beginners on how to start animating your React Native apps. In this guide, we are going to create a Burger Button that when activated spins and turns into an X button. For this, introductory knowledge of React Native will be required.
To follow the code, use the instructions in Getting Started with React Native, and then we can start our guide.
Let’s discuss a structure to start new projects or when you need to scale large projects.
We will use React Native as a basis for this architecture, but the concepts can be leveraged in projects using other frameworks.

Django Framework has great out-of-the-box features that when used wisely can become powerful allies to create quick scalable solutions with less code. The Sites Framework is one of these great hidden gems, especially if you are trying to create a solution that handles multiple websites on the same application, such as White Label platforms.
I believe that almost every Android dev has at least once tried to get a View’s dimension, but it returned 0, nada. This is a very common situation, it is one of those problems that we just Google for a solution and find a workaround that seems to work. We add it to the code without having much idea of what’s going on and that’s it. In this article I’ll explain why this happens and why many of the most used workarounds should be avoided. In the end I’ll give you a very sweet solution.
I recently shared content about Product Thinking during an event and this mindset is changing the way I’m looking at Projects and Products.
There are great articles out there about Product Thinking, like this one, but no canvas that brings together all the main questions Product Thinking focuses on.
With that being said, I took a stab at it and created one (there is a tiny possibility others are looking for something like this but never found it).
How companies mistakenly try to use diversity
What comes to your mind when companies talk about diversity? Or even better, what did you think about when you saw all their Twitter accounts changing into rainbow logos this June?
I, personally, felt really happy when I saw diversity initiatives not only in companies in Brazil, but also in companies from the town where I live, Florianopolis. But when you stop to really think about it, don’t you have this annoying little thought in the back of your head saying that this is just a new trend and maybe one day it will pass?
