Although the tools, standards, frameworks and patterns had evolved A LOT in the last 20 years there is one thing that did not changed and that is one of the lessons I’ve learned as a software developer:
Code is made by people for people.
One of the most important tools you have to keep relevant after 20 years and understand the different aspects is follow people that are shaping the future of the industry and engage into discussions and collaboration so yourself will also take part on building the future, that is why I want to share 12 profiles I recommend to follow on Twitter from people I follow and share great content.
