Sometimes it's not clear from the start, but it eventually becomes clearer during the process. Sometimes it's … Continue reading Generalists vs Specialists
As human beings we assume a lot, but realising after it's not the case anymore. We accept those that have worked longer in employment to know more.

Let's start by the most famous framework out there Bootstrap! Imagine there are different variations of it. The original, the Sass, the older version (just because it … Continue reading Many methods, many implementations.
There are times when things need completed urgently. But there are methods to go about it. First think about the 5 W's. Who, what, when, why, where. Apply this logic to one of your tasks.

Tasked to solve - is pretty much what one has been doing to date. Not knowing, but yet comfortable challenging them while time is ticking away. Rewind back to years, where self teaching new programming languages was ever so daunting. The instincts of knowing a language that would update in increments or a full re-write … Continue reading Tackling programming languages from the past
