You can hear what a client/partner needs and you can just meet their needs. OR You can listen to them, and start building a new relationship and lay the foundation for a long-running gig. You can only succeed in that partnership when you start by focusing on solving immediate paint points but never lose track… Read More »
Last few years have been fascinating with several front-end frameworks coming up. I am not going to compare them; neither am I going to talk about The Good or The Bad on them. The buzz words, the new technologies are so shiny that almost everyone I speak to today wants to work on the new… Read More »
