Based on the five content, the conclusion is: January can be the most depressive month of the year because all of the proposed arguments seem to be true. And the weird thing is that most of my friends have ag [...]

Personal Development Hour Starting today, I want to you have an hour to yourself every week. Dedicate that time to your personal development.

This article came about after suffering from back trouble in 2013–2014, specifically Sciatica, due to a restrictive Psoas (iliopsoas) muscle.

Back trouble stemming from the Psoas muscle affected me greatly at that time and was worsened by sitting at a desk for work. This motivated me, as a yoga instructor, to fi [...]

You say to-may-to, we say to-mah-to. But recently, X-Teamers had the opportunity to pick the brain of a guy, who dedicated quite some time these last few years to study of productivity... and he does not say either of those. He says, pomodoro! We are talking, of course, about Karol Sojko. A developer, Unleasher, and a master of productivity, who also recently held a talk at the 4Developers 2017 conference, titled Unleashing Your Super-dev-powers [...]

It has been 10 months now, since I joined X-Team. Ten months of extraordinary experiences, of new friendships, and of interesting work.

Last year, I spent most of my work trying to bring the potential of my fellow developers into full play. I was pretty confident about the routine I have established. This year, I’m trying out a new approach based on experiences from last year. I’m certain it will help others be more focused on their growth. The background Currently, I take care of 18 developers and their growth. The way we work is mostly based on the approach I have described in [...]
