Hello everybody,

This month I started a new job at Contentful (yeah... I've been there before 🙈). I was swamped with new tasks, meeting people and onboarding remotely. It's a lot of fun so far!

I hope you're alright in these times of lockdown! Let's dive right into my favorite content of April 2020.

A quote to think about

I like to write about things. It helps me to understand technical concepts fully. Sahil Lavingia shared this quote of the month.

Reading is the inhale, writing is the exhale. Breathe.

A song that makes you stop coding

This song grew a lot on me. As on old Oasis fanboy, Jim Kroft's "OBSTACLES and its Britpop style entered my Spotify playlist more and more.
