As developers, the majority of our resources are online. In fact, I would say we have an over-abundance of resources available.
Information is beneficial.
Information is how we learn.
Information is how we stay sharp.
Information is power.
What about too much information?
We only have so much time during the day. We can only process so much technical information. With how fast the software development industry changes, consuming too much information can likely leave us in a state of indecision.
I can only imagine how our brains look if we read the comments section of Hacker News or Reddit.
All to say, information is useful. However, if we don’t filter what we take in and how much, it can prevent us from getting real work done.
