Does this week sound familiar to anyone? Monday: I have so many cool puzzles to solve, I can’t wait to get to it. I am gonna be THAT genius that updates,  DRY’s up and cleans up some code to make life easier for the team,  once and for all! Tuesday: […]

Memoirs of A Jr. Dev

This week had me thinking really hard about troubleshooting and debugging. These are the two main tasks I perform as a dev. I spent quite some time troubleshooting a red herring only to discover that I was likely troubleshooting the wrong issue. I feel that what might take more experienced […]

Memoirs of a Jr Dev-It’s Not That Difficult!

Apologies for going dark readers! I realised that I was writing so much about struggle, which I know you all appreciate, that I was bringing more of it to me. The exact opposite of what I was wanting. Experiencing challenges and then resolving them is great, it is helpful and […]

I was told 2 things by someone very important […]

Struggles and Solutions
