► Real Estate: Ownership Interests (Not Into It) ◄

"Real property interests can be acquired and held in several different ways, including as an owner, a possessor, or a party entitled to some future or contingent interest. This article briefly touches on the most common real property interests, and how such interests might be typically applied in “real-world” transactions."

"The most common estate for owning a real property interest is the “fee simple absolute,” often shortened to “fee simple.” A fee simple property interest is the broadest estate described under law"
(Source: https://www.americanbar.org/newsletter/publications/law_trends_news_practice_area_e_newsletter_home/2011_summer/real_property_interests_deeds.html)

What should you do if you were not into Real Estate ownership interests?

► The Technical Skills You NEED To Have As A DEVELOPER! ◄

Have you ever questioned yourself what would be the technical skills you NEED to have as a developer?

You know I often talk here on this channel about soft skills and how important they are. However, we need to make sure not to discard the technical skills, which are definitely a big part in everyone's life and career.

I mean, if you can’t actually write code and develop software, all the soft skills you learn won’t really do you much good. Perhaps you’d make a good manager or coach, but not a software developer.

But if you are reading this section of the book, I’m assuming you are interested in becoming a software developer—or a better one—so let’s talk about the technical skills you are going to need to know.

Now, this is a topic that tends to overwhelm many beginning software developers because it can feel like there is so much to know, and it can be difficult to even know where to start.

I’m going to try and break it down here into what the most essential and beneficial technical skills are that are going to benefit you the most in your quest to become a software developer.
