Most times, we actually are not slowing down.
What this tends to cost us are numerous.
This is not a show-down. But rather a talk describing the pros and cons of monoliths vs microservices. When should you use a monolith? When should use adopt the microservices architecture. Let's hear it on this episode of #thisdevlife.

Let's paint some scenarios today.
You are a freelance developer who needs to work with the software development team of a particular firm. You realize thier quality of work or processes is not up to standard you expect.
Asked to work on a solution and deliver in time - where you know it is impossible to deliver without failures. Do you promise heaven on earth and deliver rubbish or stay firm and advise the customer of the realities at the risk of loosing the contract?
Have you been feeling lazy? or not so productive? - I have been. Most days these couple of weeks, I've been clueless on what exactly to do. But hey, maybe it's time for me to take some much-needed rest.
The energy I see from a lot of the junior developers I interact with every day amazes me. They have a lot zeal to explore all the worlds of devs as it may be. You can hear one say something like I'm currently using this X-Language to do Y number of stuff and I want to use some AI infused learning to do Z in the Alpha component I built with Delta Framework. That sounds like a lot of gibberish right? But hey, they're making things work out for themselves and learning this and learning that.
Today on This Dev Life, I have a chat with my friend and brother - Matthew on some of the hack that has been helping him as a Software Engineer. He shares his insights and things that keep him going in this journey. Listen and Enjoy.
I still see myself as a developer even as do in my 9-5 where I don't write production code. And I travel a lot (not as much as some other folks but enough to call it a lot). How do I manage my time so I can deliver optimally and not break down?
Let's hear it on this episode of This Dev Life.
One of the perks of being a good developer is you can decide what type of employment to take. When you decide to go remote. What are the things you take to note that shape your professionalism, work-life balance and communication? Let's hear it out on this episode of This Dev Life.
Do you write code sometimes and you're unable to get by a bug for hours, maybe even days? How do you finally solve the problems - if you do. How many nights and hours did you spend on Stack Overflow trying to get the right code to copy and paste.
Let's talk about naughty bugs on this episode of This Dev Life.
Many times when I achieve something as a developer, I feel good for few minutes and then I set back in to do more work. I realize I hardly celebrate my successes. Does this happen to you often? Do you feel sometimes your immediate achievement isn't really worth it. Let's hear it out on this episode.
