DEVELOPMENT

how AI is reshaping
web development by
offering users a more
personalised experience. It

WHAT PROBLEM DO YOU ENCOUNTER


MOST WORKING WITH FREELANCERS?


THE POLL

Do not fear your client,
they are individual
people who can be
approached, questioned and
talked to. Do all three often, get
them on your side, work with
them, not for them. Your life will
be easier and better for it.
@adsevenfour

Learn the language
before you learn the
framework. If you want
to learn React, take the time to
learn JavaScript first. It will make
your learning easier and allow

you to extend the framework
beyond what it’s capable of.
@CraigPryde

Find somewhere to
work where you can
learn from others.
@Benjieboo

“If you don’t use it, you
lose it.” Sometimes ppl
get caught up in
learning a bunch of languages,
then end up forgetting what they
learned. So no matter what
language you learn, make sure

that you also put in the time to
build something.
@DonnyFingerGuns

80% of success comes
from people skills.
Technical skills are only
relevant if you can read
situations, negotiate and
communicate enough to identify
how to apply these skills.
@_LeonBrown

Embrace failure! It’s
okay not having an
answer to all the
questions. Learn that failure is a
process and even the top
engineers don’t remember the
basics sometimes!
