We Are All Wrong

We hate being wrong as humans and that often clouds our judgement in different situations. Even when we are certainly wrong but have held on to a belief for so long, we let confirmation bias impede our acknowledgement of the truth that we are wrong.


Lets Talk Safe Navigation

Safe navigation operator is a syntactic construct mostly found and used in programming languages that offer the object oriented programming paradigm. Safe navigation is needed when navigating properties/methods/children of an object with a need to ascertain that there are no broken pointers.


Hurt People Hurt People

My wife and I just went to see the movie Little - the new movie by Marsai Martin. It was a good movie and the narrative was about a lady who had been treated unfairly by peers at a young age. In an attempt to defend herself from being hurt in the future, she worked hard to achieve success and “hurt people before they could hurt her” by being so mean to everyone who worked with and for her.

There is a common misconception in the web industry that frontend development is easy and has little or no use for algorithms and complex software concepts. This might be the most inaccurate perception for anyone to have. Building user interfaces is infact, exhaustive and can be more complex than backend sometimes.
