Code is Art

Code is Art

Programming is very much a creative pursuit. You’re creating something out of nothing, not with paint or words, but with code. 

If you have any desire to produce at a high level, then you have to practice. You can get a lot better, in less time, if you make your practice more effective.

The quantity and quality of your output increase when you get better at being able to stay focused for longer, intentional periods.

Yes, You Can Be a 10x Developer (But 5x, 2x and 1x Are Great Too)

This ability is not a natural gift. You aren’t born with it and it’s not something you can “turn on.” It’s a skill that you can, and must, practice and train.

There are more open developer jobs than there are qualified developers to fill them. Companies are having trouble filling positions with any qualified developers, let alone (some Multiplier) X developers.

Most companies will knock down the door for a 10x developer but they’re happy hiring 5x, 2x, and even 1x developers.

Learning to Focus is HARD

The first thing to realize is that learning to focus isn’t easy. You’re not going to be able to start producing novels of quality code from the start. Especially if you’ve never dealt with the reality of how easily distracted you are. 

Learning to focus requires practice. Anything that requires practice means its difficult. If it wasn’t, you’d be good at it by default.

Don’t Confuse Busyness with Productivity

Just because you’re doing something doesn’t mean it’s worth doing. You need to figure out what’s important and what’s not.

 If you’re going to spend the time learning how to focus, then do it on something that has a high return for the effort involved.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
