All the week long we couldn’t wait for this chance to share with you all those interesting and important news we’re sharing today! Of course, we could write about each of them separately.

The same thing is happening with good developers – they don’t need instantly share all their knowledge, but to keep, accumulate and just use where it is most appropriate.
