Imagine two computer science graduates. They are childhood friends who graduated from the same college. They are both quite adept at what they do, but they are no geniuses. They are both eager to start their careers and become accomplished.
Fast forward ten years.
They are both married now and each has two lovely kids. They both work at one of the companies in the Bay Area.
But there is a significant difference between their outcomes. One is a senior software engineer (L3) and the other is senior staff (L7). I don't need to tell you how different their compensation is.
I'm sure you've wondered what makes this kind of difference in people's lives.
Is it talent and dedication? Is it intrinsic motivation? Or maybe networking and social skills? I got to emphasize that both of them were of similar talent and both wanted to succeed very much.
The true difference lies in what each person knows and how they apply that knowledge.
And this is why I started Tech Tuesdays.
Every day, I wake up and I go on Reddit, Hacker News, Slashdot, and many others to find the most interesting pieces of information related to the tech industry.
All in all, I "waste" around 2 hours on this. Daily.
And I've been doing this, without a break, for the last 15 years. From now on, you can get the same information curated by me and delivered to your inbox every Tuesday. For free.
I believe this single habit has given me the edge that allowed me to succeed slightly more than my peers.
Right now, I'm looking at the latest issue of Tech Tuesdays. It covers all the important news of the week related to technology with in-depth feature reporting.
There are also topics like business, investments, startups, development, marketing, privacy, design, science, society, and even health.
If you're still not convinced, I ask you to, at least, skim through the latest issue.
And about these two college classmates I mentioned at the beginning of this page, what made their outcomes different?
Knowledge. Practical knowledge. And its application.
These, seemingly random pieces of knowledge, are what glued my tech skills together. At least that's the feedback I got from several of my former bosses.
I can't promise you that you will be as successful as me if you start reading Tech Tuesdays. But I can guarantee that I will do all that is in my power to make the publication interesting, useful, and reliable.
