Svelte For Beginners

What's This One About?

Time management is a challenging part of any developers' day. Between the coding work that needs to be done alongside planning, and support requests - getting ahead may seem impossible. For junior developers, the added challenge is that they're actively learning, while balancing all the things that come with job searching, working, and even traditional school. In this episode, Matt and Mike cover some time management tips and tricks for developers - with some specific ones in there for junior developers and their crazy schedules.

Show Notes
