If you’re reading this article, it means the website is up and running as it’s supposed to. I should put a notice like this everywhere, but why would I need to in the first place? If you’re a regular on my website, then you might have noticed some changes in the past week. A new design, some tweaks here and there but the most important thing of all is the fact that I have changed the hosting provider. Why would I need to do this? The time has come! Switching hosting providers! *sigh* — Stefan Cosma (@stefanbc)...

It's more of a question actually. What's it like to read other's people code and why you should be prepared?

Lone wolves or night owls, that's how you usually describe your friendly neighborhood developer. He doesn't travel in packs and usually you'll find him sitting at a desk tipping his fingers off on some piece of code that is either to stubborn to run or he has an idea he wants to get of his mind, because as you may know most developers are brilliant geniuses. But why are developers so afraid of the outside world? Well my guess, as somebody on the inside, is that we don't actually like how this world works and we're not on the same...
