About the content
You work in a fast-paced, constantly-evolving landscape if you're a developer. This is nothing to fear though, and can often be one of the most satisfying things about working in the field.
You'll find yourself dealing with changes involving tools you use, roles in your team, and project needs. The best way to handle these things is to just accept them as part of the job and be as prepared as possible.
Being prepared means staying up to date on what's happening in the development industry. There's inspiration to be found everywhere, including from:
- Startups you admire
- Coders building tools you often use
- Bootcamps, universities, etc.
