Why it takes only 21 days? Because that’s how long it takes to make a habit. Even a dangerous one.
Unfortunately, these bad habits can happen and can be very damaging in the long term.
Here are few ones to pay attention to:
“I don’t want to fill my head with stuff I won’t use”
“I don’t have the time to learn.”
Newsflash: Technology changes!
Because of it, you have to constantly update your tools.
Think of it as sharpening your developer's brain.
Remember in 2015 when everyone said that Ruby on Rails was the go-to language to be a…
Your self-image is the result of all you have given your subconscious mind as a database, so regardless of your background, what you are willing to become is the only reality that counts.

One of the biggest ironies in all of human existence is that we have one of the most powerful tools between our ears but none of us have ever read the manual for it.
“Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.”
I never thought I would share this story so publicly, but I’m doing this to improve my mental health.
When I was in college, I got gaslighted by my own family.
Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation in which a person or a group covertly sows seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or group, making them question their own memory, perception, or judgment.
They did not care about how…
“When you teach something, you learn it twice”
Nothing could be further from the truth when learning a skill.
Especially with software.
So, I’ve decided to create a simple of list of blog post that will give you a gist on how to learn JS effectively.
For this, I’ll be using the Feynman Technique to explain JS concepts. This is a technique used by Richard Feynman to explain hard concepts in the simplest of ways.
I will also use, but not be restricted to, the Mozilla developer documents as my inspiration to create these blog posts.
Here are the conditions…
We are entering an age where Artificial Intelligence is becoming more relevant by the day.
From virtual assistants to industrial robots building our cars and maybe even houses.
But what to feel about these new changes?
Here are some interesting quotes about our vision of artificial intelligence and how we are our future coexistence.
“The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race….It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.”

When I was 9 years old, I gave the house computer a virus. I honestly thought at the time that I was getting the latest StarCraft game on PC.
Fortunately, the old Pentium III got fixed by a tech wiz and all was forgotten, right?
It all started with a simple pop-up that became a standard during the early days of the Internet.
Everything was free and new and I felt much smarter than I really was.
Apparently, that’s why I got hazed by an Internet forum when I unknowingly asked for a free game over the internet.
You shouldn’t learn to code if you are only doing it for the money
It was 6 pm, and I was sipping a cup of coffee after work when I joined a Facebook group about coding. I love to join these groups because I like to help others and usually get paid in computer memes. However, it’s easy to spot questions such as these:
(It’s a Friday morning and the camera enters Dunder Mifflin Virtual Agency. A hackspace that has two floors and on the second floor is where the computers are)
Michael: Do I love working in Virtual Agency That requires me to wake…
Not only does it provide the flexibility to create scalable web applications. But also allows you to develop the app backend and frontend using a single language.
Or in other words:
“One code to rule them all” — JS Developers
Don’t worry, these are simple to use and you won’t have to install anything.
If you’ve been writing software for a while, you have found out that most code written by developers(yourself included) becomes exponentially complex quite easily. Which is why documentation exists. After all, it is more likely that you’ll be working with a team of developers in most projects. But sometimes documentation is not enough when looking at the code. Sometimes a little clarification on the source code can be the difference between days and hours of debugging. Personally, I like to follow Uncle Bob’s opinion that comments should not compensate for bad code as explained in his book: Clean code.
