The largest misconception is how some of these “tech influencers” on TikTok suggest you can code and make 200k overnight by attending a bootcamp.

Nah fam, it took me 20 years to get here, and with todays YouTube university, it could take you 2-4, but ain’t no magic overnight.

Absolutely this. And read your employee contracts people!

Over the years I've learned that most assumptions about someone else's infrastructure needs tend to be wrong. Context matters.

Cloud has its own limitations and the best way to help customers is by finding the right balance between their architecture and ours.

At a certain scale all systems break. That's when you learn the most.

Thanks; I’ll use this the next time I interview in the systems design round when they ask to “design Twitter”. Interviews are weird sometimes; probably still fail.

Found this YouTube channel last night "Raw Coding" with lots of deep dives into how bits of .NET and ASP.NET Core work #dotnet #aspnetcore

After a teacher discovered my physical abuse at 4 years old, I was raised a foster kid in Compton. I taught myself to code at 8 yo and later pursued a degree in CS.

I went on to become one of the 1% at Google who were Black and a software engineer. Now, I run Morgan Latimer LLC full-time to help light the way for the next generation of technologists.
