Hi,

I've been on a short break visiting family. I'm looking forward to putting my daughter in her usual routine though. She was just a fuss-butt all week long 😒. I'm looking forward to my usual routine too!

💸 I've added new tech conferences scholarships at Diversify Tech. Take a look!

👩‍💻 Are you looking for a new role? Share your info here. I would love to feature you on Diversify Tech.

I'd love to hear about what you are working on as well as any feedback about the newsletter. Feel free to reply and let me know what you think! 

Cheers,
@venikunche

You become both a student and a teacher" - Tae'lur Alexis, Front-End Engineer, Founder of Code Everyday  [Read more]
 
"Common fallacy: you have to code all the time to be any good. Wrong. Take breaks, refresh, and you'll get better with time. There's no time frame on becoming a successful programmer." - Kelly Vaughn, Entrepreneur, Developer, & Shopify Expert [Read more]
