Hello Autumn and hello to you too 😊 welcoming new subscribers!
This is the 2nd issue of this newsletter thingy, I’ll try to recap what’s it all about and what to expect in the next issues.
This newsletter will focus on interesting content, articles, links, tips & tricks I picked up revolving around tech and web development in general covering both front-end and back-end development putting in my experience of almost 20 years of software development.
It will cover various content related to programming. My motto is that one should widen their skillset as much as possible, even if one doesn’t code in X language one can learn a lot from it.

✴ Front-End

I've seen companies going from 5 devs to 50 by making their software infinitely more complicated just to look busy and attract more VC funding. A prime example of the "grow or die" mentality. https://t.co/0Uc91sJAF5

Programming Wisdom
You never finish a program, you just stop working on it.

"A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one."
