You can always learn new technologies, implement features, and even though you may feel you’re an accomplished coder, certain things still bug you, may be there are PRs in review not getting through smoothly or a certain algorithm that you can’t wrap your head around or there’s a feeling of repetition at work and you don’t love your tech stack as much. It’s normal to have these issues.

I’m a senior software architect with over 10 years of experience programming in various tech stacks, I’ve held positions ranging from Developer to CTO, and pretty much everything in between. Most of my work still revolves around coding.
