We have so many tools to develop ourselves today that is unlikely to use each of them even once a week. I’ve decided to launch a new series here and it will be related to the process I’m pretty sure you’re familiar with: lifelong learning. This term is quite self-explanatory, but if you’re not sure what does it mean I suggest you to at least take a look on lifelong learning wikipedia explanation. The first sentence there actually does the job:
"Ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons."
As I’ve mentioned we have tons of tools and resources to help us grow and I personally tried and still use some of them. I use Duolingo for languages (not the programming ones! I have 339 days streak in Spanish today!), I renew my CodeSchool subscription from time to time (last week I’ve done that to see their React course), I spend some time on Codewars, I dived into edX resources some time ago, I explored the content of Codecademy and so on, and so on. Of course - these are the online resources, but the screen is not my siamese brother so I also read some papers and even wrote a post about the books I think every ruby/rails dev should read. Reading is obviously a part of the lifelong learning process and don’t forget about the traditional paperbooks. Anyway, today I’ll share with you my thoughts about Codewars - a place where you can try yourself with some real-world coding challenges.
