[BAWD #90] Data Science Curriculum and React 18
Hello, dear friend 👋🏾,
I trust you had a blissful week. Btw, here’s a friendly reminder that it is much more important to work hard and be determined than to be smart/talented.
So, I’ve decided to try out some affiliate programs for the fun of it, to see the chances of monetizing BAWDLetters, and to offer YOU more value. My goal is to find courses and valuable resources with the best promo deals and coupons while still getting $omething off it. Moving forward, you will see promotional content from platforms like Udemy, Skillshare, Namecheap, etc.; if you click on them to sign up or subscribe, I’d get a percentage off your purchase. Hopefully, this will benefit you and me in the long run.
If you love #BAWDLetters, please forward this email, share it on social media, or invite your friends to subscribe. Feel free also to share feedback or suggestion(s); thanks!

“Pitching and presenting projects is not a tender act. Handling and delivering critical feedback is not mild, and dealing with office politics is certainly not for the weak. So why do we still refer to them as soft skills?” –Loredana Padurean
