Welcome, devs!

To answer the question, I've been reading a lot of children's/young adult fiction lately, and it's really great. There's a lot of creative writing that is sometimes missed in books geared toward adults.

As for dev stuff, I've been learning about tests with RSpec and Capybara lately. Pretty annoying, but a necessary good... Also, I've taken an interest in React Native and Android dev. Might be doing more of that later on.


I'm at that stage too, Young Adult books are still my favorite.
They don't suck the fun out of reading, lol.

I also love some of the books my daughters picked up - If you have young readers in your life, or even just for kicks, I suggest "The Pigeon" books by Mo Willems, grade A. I have a weakness for sassy pigeons.


Sassy pigeons? Yes, definitely going to take a trip back to the library for that.

I just finished reading Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen. It's a really fun book in a he-said-she-said format, that just takes you back to middle school (in a good way, or at least as-good-as-middle-school-gets way). I read it with my partner and definitely recommend it as a book to read together.
