Let’s check some chrome extensions for Front-end, React, Vue, Programming and for general use! If you use different extensions let me know I’ll do a part-2.

Burnout is a real thing! A few days ago I asked on Twitter how you prevent it and I have to admit I got some great ideas and some tips I didn’t think of!

Burn-out is defined in ICD-11 as follows:

“Burn-out is a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterized by three dimensions:

  • feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion;
  • increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job; and
  • reduced professional efficacy.

Burn-out refers specifically to phenomena in the occupational context and

TL:DR You probably know these tips. But you don’t apply them in your real life.

Many of these tips are not new. You heard them before. I talked about them before. But do you actually use them? Some things are very simple yet this doesn’t mean they are easy. And sometimes you need to hear/see/read something multiple times until you actually get it. I hope you’ll find these tips not only useful but also easy to implement.

1.Stop procrastinating. What’s the cause of procrastinating? Know the why then the how becomes easier. …

A few days ago I asked on Twitter what is harder than coding. My answer would be poverty, raising children (although I’m not a parent), communication, etc.

Let’s see how other people felt.

Git can be powerful but we have to admit, at first it was not easy right?!

This post is dedicated to Git and how it made us feel when we first started using it. I use plural (we) because I feel pretty much we all had the same feelings.

Many of us are still not master-s in it ( <- get it 😉) but somehow we manage to use it..!

Let’s read your stories

Confusion mode

  • Mmmmm but why…. Ohhh ok….no was what?…… ahhhh ok got it, nope not got it…….ah ok got it….still wait what?
  • Why is this so complicated…..oh wait that makes sense….oh…

What was your first job (tech or not)?

In the past, I talked with many people who were ashamed of their jobs. They weren’t doing anything illegal, they weren’t stealing, so why were they ashamed? Still to this day I don’t know. A job is a job, it pays the bills. Of course, not all jobs are great, that’s why we are trying to improve ourselves, in order to have a better job -> a better life.

This time I asked many people on Twitter the same question, thankfully the answers were different. Everyone seemed proud of their first job even if the payment was too small or…

Very recently I asked on Twitter: “Do you feel proud of yourself”, before I see the answers I was sure that people would say “Yes”… boy, I was wrong!

To my surprise, many people said they are not proud, so although my initial thought was to create a motivational tweet it turned out (by some people) to be the exact opposite.

Since I couldn’t prove my point on Twitter, which by the way it is YOU SHOULD FEEL PROUF OF YOURSELF, I’m going to try to do it here!

A few days ago I asked on Twitter: Do you listen to music while you work?!

  • Most people gave me a positive response.
  • A few people mentioned it depends on the work (I belong in that category too).
  • And very few people said they never do.

According to Healthline, music does offer many benefits, such as:


  • Improved mood
  • Increased motivation
  • Improved memory and brain stimulation
  • Better management of pain and fatigue

CSS can be tricky! It makes you feel powerful and weak at the same time. After many hours -and some magic numbers- you’ll have what you initially -almost- wanted!

The most common word between the answers was “ magic”, other common words were “superpower”, “powerful” and “lost”, “confused”, “frustration”! If you have trouble learning CSS, I hope this post will help you to see you’re not the only one.

Let’s see how people felt when they first started working with it.

  • I thought this is just magic I will never understand and now I would say I’m a magician too…
