The only thing keeping me back from reading WoT is the thiccness of those books. How long does it take you to finish a volume in audio form? Also, RIP James Oliver Rigney.

Each book is about 50 hours. Insane. I'm not sure I'd have the patience for the paperback but the audio's great for commutes and chores.

I'm a brand new dev in the dev community. I'm here to grab some really interesting articles about pretty much everything (just curious :D). I've already read a great article about _.memoize and there we go, I'm here!
I'm mainly coding with NodeJS on server-side actually (I'm a junior dev with 1 year of exp BTW) but I would like to go further and go with C++/Go/Python on more complex things (especially AI ^ and BigData).

Hope gonna find out more interesting things here!

At first I thought it was another blog site like medium where lots of people posted a lot stuff I still don't know after many years in this industry. But then a learned it was a blog/discussion board where real flesh-and-blood developers posts their experiences, frustrations and shortcomings and that made me feel like right at home. And so here I am hoping to enhance my knowledge with your experiences and also bring something in with future posts.
