I speak five languages, and I can program a computer in about a dozen programming languages. However, it took me almost two decades to realize that I can work on my own, without being trapped in any "company culture." It's been 18 years that are gone forever, and I'll never have again. My only hope is that my kids will outsmart me.
Freedom and enjoying life - while we still can - is more important than scaling our business or climbing the corporate ladder. Too many of us get trapped by our own "success" and forget to live a life that's worth living. Meet old friends. Go out, enjoy nature. Ride a bike. Visit your parents. Forget about office politics, money, appointments, and checking your phone every ten seconds. Life begins when you leave all of that shit behind you!
I'm putting the finishing touches on my upcoming book "Programming Foundations for Absolute Beginners: Learn to code from scratch with no prior experience" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QDVDW4S #programming #pythonprogramming #beginners #foundations
One of the many benefits of being an entrepreneur is location independence. This is the view from our new "office." #entrepreneurship #freedom #summer19
First typo I've encountered in Apple developer docs since 2009. ;)Update: they fixed it almost instantly! https://twitter.com/knyisztor/status/1120344158365990915https://developer.apple.com/documentation/swift/result

More or less.
Somebody left the following comment on my Youtube channel: "UML is a complete and total overengineered waste of time. Write down a list of stuff to do, prioritize, get stuff done. Stop over complicating things." I'm not saying that UML and detailed planning is the ultimate answer in every situation. To-do lists might work for simpler projects. However, when you have to work with complex systems, and design large-scale projects, you can't work effectively without rules and standards. Here's an analogy. You might be able to build a survival shelter without a plan. But you definitely need a plan to [...]
Maybe it's the jetlag to blame. I just had a revelation and wanted to have it written down before I forget... I believe I've discovered why are we here; what's the reason for our existence on this planet; I've got the answer to the big question: WHAT'S THE MEANING OF LIFE? So, let me share the answer with you. The meaning of life is to BECOME A BETTER VERSION OF YOURSELF! We have to evolve; we need to upgrade ourselves to v2.0 (3.0, 4.0 you name it). What I try to avoid is getting stuck: stuck in an unfulfilling [...]
So, are you tired of the rat race? You feel that it's time for a change, and you want to work on your own ideas - instead of making others rich? I know, leaving your comfort zone is hard. But trust me: your real life begins after leaving the cubicle. Every one of us deserves to live a fulfilling life. Being drop-fed by your employer and doing meaningless work won't make you happy in the long term. I took the leap in 2016 and never looked back. What followed were the best two years of my life. Finally, I could spend [...]
