I love my blog. It allows me to share all of the cool things I learn and the thoughts I have with a broader audience.
I also love my blog because it allows me to teach. As a rabbi, I still see myself as a teacher at heart. I find that explaining something to others is the best way for me to learn and solidify concepts that I have trouble understanding. Which is why I also enjoy writing on Quora.
Quora, for those who don’t know, is a Question & Answer platform where people from all over the world get together to share knowledge. I maintain a pretty active profile there. While the majority of what I write there is Judaism related, I also have a fair share of programming related answers which I figured I’d share with my audience here.

Many times as a mobile developer I have to work on apps without the API ready that was crucial for the feature I was implementing. Either the backend was developed by another team that was not entirely in sync with us or our backend team had no chance to implement those endpoints earlier. For this reason, I was not able to satisfy the Definition of Done but it does not mean that I have implemented the UI only.
