5 articles you should consider reading

Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.

— Francis Bacon


We all know developers read and write code and anything associated with it like documentations, design patterns, style guides e.t.c but sometimes it's good to step away from reading anything code related so that when you come back to coding you might have a different perspective.

The articles that we'll talk about is all about making you a better developer, and not a single article mentioned therein contains a single line of code.

All the articles are my personal recommendations and most of them are long reads meaning it will take you some time to read any single one of them, so I'll advise that you add them to your browser bookmark then you can read them later.

In no particular order, let's begin.
