It blows my mind that tech is one of the most well-paying industry *and* has a low technical barrier to entry. #moa

Do you have those moments when you’re learning something and your brain has epiphanies about something completely different?

I’m trying out Elixir for fun, and I realized how JS destructuring makes perfect sense, and that JSX is just a sophisticated macro. 🤯
