Recently I did a video about the Uber Engineer who have ended his own life. As always, I ended up receiving a lot of nasty comments on the video, saying that I did not have any authority to talk about such subject, that there are differences between depressed people and sad people, etc.

Well, while I do not get into this discussion again, I think most of you have misinterpreted the video.

My whole point was: You are IN CONTROL of your life! And nothing can take that away from you.

This is exactly what I'm going to talk in this video.

Lately, I've been receiving some nasty comments here on this YouTube channel about what I'm doing here in this channel.

"John, you should do more or that", "Oh, c'mon, do you really think you're helping someone with that?", and all these types of stuff.

I've been thinking a lot about this lately and I've come to realize that... I'm fucking thrilled with what I'm doing!

In this video. I'll share with you why I'm thrilled with everything and how it impacts your life directly!

Learning is a difficult process for most people, especially in the tech field. Picture this: Every day new technologies arise and you must be able to keep up with them.

Newbies and senior developers always struggle with this. Being a digital influencer in the programming field makes me have much more contact with people's biggest concerns and this is definitely one of them.

Should you learn one programming language and stick to it? Should you learn a lot of programming languages at the same time? What should you do?

From time to time, I receive some success stories that I found to be wonderful. As you might know, the number 1 reason why I do what I do in this channel, is the ability I have to provide value to everyone who might need my help.
