Digital nomads, millennials, and female solo travelers are just some examples of a new generation of travelers we are just figuring out.
In this episode you’ll learn about the top travel behavioral trends the team at Tripscout has identified by speaking with hundreds of travelers.
A few weeks ago, I contributed to Django with a couple of patches. One of them consisted of an enhancement to Django’s auto generated admin documentation for admin sites. I got to know how this feature really works.
Read on if you want to get a clear picture of how you can make more effective use of it.
I did something that most people think impossible: I changed careers!
If you are currently a student or you chose a college degree not related to Software Development, this is your chance to turn back.
Don’t be afraid to change.
You will always have options and you can make a change anytime. But the sooner you do it, the easier it is.
