How would you say a senior developer can keep learning, can keep growing and getting out of that comfort zone regularly?
Paola Mata: Also in addition to taking on larger projects, maybe just taking an interest in a particular aspect of like Swift or iOS. And learning on your own, taking advantage of any time that your company allots for learning basically. Some companies do like a 7% time or have like a hack week or something to really explore something outside even the iOS room. I think it really helps to understand a lot about how APIs work because we use them so often in iOS. So there's obviously listening to really cool podcasts or YouTube channels or blog posts. All the same resources that you use to learn iOS. You can continue using them for more advanced topics. If you're the kind of person who likes having side projects, you could use opportunity like that to explore Maybe a framework that you don't get to use in your-day to-day job. There are so many ways to learn it. And again, you could also maybe take an interest in another programming language in another platform entirely and pursue that.
