Quote I'm pondering:
"Don’t look for the next opportunity. The one you have in hand is the opportunity." –Paul Adren

- 🧠 Trying to better understand: SPA state management, autoformatting, being a senior developer, code reviews, development roadmaps, ethics of technology, language design, mentorship & teaching, organizational change, programming ergonomics, remote work, spaced repetition, testing, the limits of SPAs, tradeoffs, type safety, virality.
