When it comes to experience as a developer, it really means you've faced the same problems many times and can find a more efficient solution. It also means you've made (and learned from) more mistakes. It doesn't mean you know everything there is to know about JavaScript!
How to make 20k in crypto: 1. Borrow 40k from family 2. Invest poorly and hastily 3. Get scared as soon as thing start to dip, lose half the investment 4. Withdraw remaining 20k 5. Buy new phone and move to non-extradition country Follow me for more shitty investment tips
My title says 'lead developer' but leading isn't demanding, dictating, it's making sure everyone has a voice at the table. Every developer has something to offer, whether they've got 6 weeks or 6 decades behind them. Do what's best for your team and the customer 👍🏻
Interview stories: you got 'em, I want 'em! What's the best or worst interview you ever had? Drop your story in the comments 👇🏻 I'll start: building buzzer broken, couldn't get into the building. Once in, was ignored for 10 mins, then grilled from 80s bad interview playbook
I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing, but I don't chase shiny tech rabbits whenever they pop up. Shiny, new frameworks, tools, apps are fun, but robust, proven tech is hugely valuable. Both have trade-offs, but you don't have to live on the bleeding edge to be successful.
Hey, you there. You're doing great and you've come further than you think. Keep going buddy 👍🏻
"Am I too old to start coding?" Nope. I've worked with students from 18 to 49. They learned to code, they landed jobs, they're living their dream 😊 It's not age that's holding you back, it's fear of failure, lack of discipline, or self-doubt. Others did it. You can do it.
Sweet baby Moses I’ve just passed the 3K followers mark 😳😳 thank you all for keeping up with my brain dumpsaq
When your teammates commit to the repo first 😢V
I’m sorry, but how the hell is it August already?! Anyone else feel like the past 2-3 months have timeslipped?
We all know this problem - you want to spin up a new local server and the port is already occupied. But you don't know which process is occupying said port. kill-port to the rescue! 🦸‍♂️ It ends the process and you can occupy it again �pp

Psst...looking for the hottest productivity tip around? Here it is.... .... .... .... Do. The. Work. Pick a thing, work at it with focus, uninterrupted. Complete it. Repeat this process. All the tips, tools and mad routines in the world won't help unless you do the work
If you want to set yourself apart as a new dev hunting for your first role, start creating content. Seriously...You'd be surprised how many aspiring devs don't. It will reinforce your knowledge, help others, and give you actual experience that you can showcase.
Sometimes I like to keep it spicy 🌶 by using Array.reduce() 😎
Great resource from Eddy if you’re looking for a tech role and need some solid advice on the hunt…
I interviewed an emerging tech recruiter friend on how to get hired, interviews, and preening your CV in a recent podcast episode here >>>…
"How do I get more confidence in technical interviews?" In two parts: practising the in-person, and testing your craft. Mentors and senior peers can help with 1, as can rehearsing answers to common interview questions found on Google. Sites like Hackerrank can help with 2
Live scenes of me returning to work after holiday 😆1
Excellent advice from Marc, especially for those new to the world of remote (which isn’t as easy as it seems) Separate spaces and maintaining regular hours is key. But I always work in sweatpants so he’s wrong about 4 😆…s
Are anyone else’s days just changing between a series of smaller and smaller screens until they go to bed?

What's the Jamstack and how can I get started? Jamstack is JavaScript, APIs and Markup. It's an increasingly popular way of creating powerful static (or near static) sites from dynamic content. Check out the resources in the thread to get started: What would you add?
I'm a big fan of the 'just in time' approach to learning. It fits my learning style better and helps me retain info longer as I can start using it sooner. What's your approach to learning? Why does it work for you?
If you're financially able and want to explore a deeper learning path then a degree is a great option. It'll open some doors you won't otherwise be able to open. But it's a personal choice, you absolutely don't need one to succeed.
OK, I get this question a lot: "Do I need a degree to get a dev job?" The short answer is no, you don't. Does that mean you shouldn't pursue a degree? That's more complicated 👇🏻
The land of tech twitter never sleeps, show me what you're working on these days? Feel free to drop a link and a short description 🤩👇
I really enjoyed talking to @frontendmentor about bootcamps, learning to code, tips and techniques on improving your front-end craft on The Front End podcast back in March. Listen here 👇🏻
A common question among new developers learning frontend is "What should I be learning?". I've transpiled (see what I did there?! 😊) my answers into a handy guide for new and aspiring devs Link below 👇🏻

British folk, do yourself a flavour and invest in a portable air con. I know, I know, it’s only hot for 10 days a year but this turns your room into a fridge, you don’t have to smash expensive holes in your wall to run cooling pipes, and it’s sub £250. Lego house for scale?
Wondering if 97.F is high when Americans mention it as a temperature. Then asking Alexa to convert it to sensible units and getting nothing back but silence……
Spoiler alert: I’ve had many jobs in many companies at lots of levels. Not once has anything close to a good idea, let alone a ‘fortunes of men’ style mega idea happened from an incidental chat in the corridor. I’m not saying they can’t….but the odds are not in your favour
LinkedIn is a goldmine for nonsense: Best argument I’ve seen for not supporting remote working? “Being fully remote, you’d miss out on those spontaneous, big idea generating moments when you pass in the corridors ans start a conversation” 🤦‍♂️
