Summer has come and we see summer workout plans popping all over the web. It’s true that it’s a great time to put your body in shape. But your brain as a muscle needs practice so you should not forget about training it.
I’m no fitness coach and I leave it up to you for the physical part but I’ll share with you a summer program for the latter.

Never being bored is great but the downside is that we need to constantly update our knowledge and skills if we want to stay in the game and not get outdated and be replaced by newer versions aka “young graduates”.
So in other words: Practice, upgrade your skills and learn new ones.

Learning new languages is always beneficial. Whether it’s for getting new jobs opportunities or for your own culture.
Let me tell you something that might surprise you. The only way to be an expert in your preferred technology is to know different ones. I’m not telling you to scatter yourself around but just to open yourself to others ways of thinking.

In this post I’m going to share with you my personal selection of cool languages.
