Welcome to my PinkLetter. A short, weekly, technology-agnostic, and pink newsletter where we cultivate timeless skills in web development.
If you are a newcomer, find an excellent mentor and mimic them until you internalize stuff.
Then, start breaking the rules and develop your own framework.
Your style will give you a reference to better incorporate new knowledge.
And it’ll set you apart from the droves of developers out there.
