NOTE: Currently, INSIDER subscriptions are paused. This means existing subscribers’ payments are frozen, and new people are NOT able to become an INSIDER subscribers yet. I plan to continue the INSIDER subscriptions again in the future. In the interim, I am working on foundational YouTube videos and then I plan to continue later.

  • Test Driven Development

  • Clean Architecture

  • Microservice Architecture
