How many of you have tried your luck? We’re not talking about gambling or ruffling. We’re talking about belief in your chance, even if you know that there’s no chance at all. Theoretically, this way of behavior is at low probability among programmers because they can predict what will happen according to different assumptions and calculations. But it is also observed that sometimes programmers have no idea what they are doing at all. And the hope that everything will be ok is the only one thing that helps them to continue. Try to identify your type of behavior while reading our new ‘Syndicode Digest #73 – Rare possibility’!

It is a pretty vital but bad companion. That is why we worked on our ‘Syndicode Digest #64 – Whenever inspiration’ regardless of the afflatus but relying on the most interesting materials we collected during this week!
