Aspiring Full-Stack Developer

> Why aspiring ?

There is no end to learning, and that is why - regardless of when you’re reading this - I’ll remain an Aspiring Full-Stack Developer.

Given the dynamic nature of coding, we can't be comfortable with what we know, we must consistently educate ourselves on the newest languages and tools. We owe to the world our ability to solve any problem, and for that can't stop learning. In keeping with this ethos, I trust my repertoire will forever be expanding. I’ll always be an Aspiring Full-Stack Developer. I’ll never know enough, and that’s not a bad thing. Humanity has progressed this far as a result of continuous learning.

Before enlightenment, chop wood and carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood and carry water. - Wu Li
