For devs who want more opportunities and better jobs

Some jobs (like some code) are just in time and fit for purpose. Bills gotta get paid, yo. But when your dreams and ambitions outgrow your cubicle, the grind can get frustrating. Instead of mastering yet another Javascript library and leaving your future to the hands of management, build your happy path using tested, proven upskilling techniques.

Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.
