It is essential to every professional to grow her insights on the technology she is working with. In general I am talking about reading books, blogs, listening to pod-casts, solving small challenges, going to meetups or generally just talk to people from the same domain. Yet reading alone is not going to hep. You can spend hours watching tutorial videos on the newest and hottest technology trend, and learn nothing. The funny thing about this approach, is that it does not help you in any way, as long as you do not internally integrate the new knowledge. I am talking about resonance. Do you know the feeling, when the text you are reading is making you excited? You instantly know many situations, when if you already had this knowledge, everything would have been easier. Why is that?
