Being Open To Change Rocks, Too.

The best kind of attitude, in my opinion, for those who work in technology is being open to change. If you quizzically thought “that’s common sense,” I thought so, too. That is, until I jumped into the developers’ world and observed that it isn’t so sometimes, so it seems. Being faced with this stark reality is a good thing for me, though. It gives balance to my otherwise utopian view that all IT personages skip and hop together all the time.

At the end of the day, I realized maybe the best way to go about it would depend on your own perspective. Your individuality may work for you. If I, for example, choose to develop a more adventurous outlook, with an eye open to new things and a brain receptive to change, then I think I’d learn more progressively and quickly. Rather than being nitpicky and jealous over others’ work, I’d ask and see “how did you do that.” I’m thinking maybe if I do that, I’d open more doors to opportunities and gain more friends.

Positivity, after all, is also good for my physical health. So yeah, I guess I’ll just do that. Here’s wishing everyone a good day today, by the way. Hope your code validates. Tech version of “live long and prosper”? Haha.

Helping Each Other and Giving Back Rocks.

There was once a time when every little thing on a website needed to be done manually. All programmers did was teach you how to start HTML (CSS was a bonus) and it’s “You’re on your own, kid.” Nowadays, all one has to do is google-search and there’s a solution for even the tiniest element or function.

Not only do you HTML5 (yes, I’m using that as a verb), you can also SASS or LESS the CSS (still using them as verbs). Not only can you self-layout, you can sometimes grab a boilerplate to act as a complete guide. Even a simple button link can be instantly generated by a good number of sites that offer such service.

I stopped coding right now just to write this post and toss a bit of a “thank you” to the programming community with a heart to give back to us aspirants. In the future, when we are much more able, we promise to give back the same way you did.
