4: Frustration, new microphone, broken keyboards and Apple updates
It seems that since Christmas Eve 2016 I've been running form one problem to the next. In this episode I go over the issues I had with my 15 inch retina MacBook Pro, how I tried to fix it and ho I ended up not fixing it. Luckily, I still have my old MacBook Air so I'm not completely without a laptop, but its performance is way lower than that of my main machine. I wrote an article previously, about the failed Apple update and how it cost me almost a week's worth of work — https://oprea.rocks/blog/high-sierra-update-messed-up-my-computer — if you'd like to learn more, go read that. Enjoy!

DevTimeStories Episode 2 — Should you become a generalist or should you specialize?
In this episode, I will take you through the ins and outs of becoming a specialist in your field. I was in a huge dilemma with regards to my career and in this episode, I detail how I decided to zoom in on a small subset of skills. Here's the deal. I have been ignorant for a big part of my career. I always believed that being a generalist is far better than being a specialist. I also thought specialists and experts were lazy. That's not even remotely true.
