If you’re a web developer, then you’re probably no stranger to starting off a new project by using some template or boilerplate code. You’re also probably no stranger to consequently deleting the useless files that the boilerplate came with. I’ve come to repeat this cycle a countless number of times and at some point I decided that there had to be a better way.

INFLATION, Explained in 6 Minutes
A quick primer on how this thing called inflation happens.
As developers, we’re often told not to solve problems that have already been solved. This leads to us using libraries, algorithms and designs that were developed by somebody else. The problem with this, however, is that we have to conform to the original developer’s implementation and way of thinking. It becomes especially problematic when their solution is less than ideal. So eventually, you have to take matters into your own hands and create some custom solutions. Let’s take a look at some of mine on blog.tinomuzambi.com.
Here’s a thought experiment. If you were to choose between two futures, one where laptops/computers become obsolete and only smartphones exist or the opposite, one where smartphones become obsolete and laptops/computers become obsolete, which future would you lean towards because I know for sure where I’m headed.
I had a shower thought, about taking a shower. The thought intrigued me and I haven't stopped thinking about it. It intrigued me so much that I couldn’t keep it to myself any longer, so I’ve come to share it with you. I think I’ll make this a series, so with that said, welcome to the pilot of Shower Thoughts.

Everyone is playing the game before school, after school and even during school. Clans are being formed. Wars are being held. Villages are being upgraded but, for some, upgrading walls is a non-necessity.
Before you even read this blog, you absolutely imperatively have to go watch this 21-minute video I made otherwise nothing will make sense. No jokes, dead serious... Okay you don’t have to, but it would be great if you did, cause I’ll be making quite a few references to it.
I was thinking about how much to divulge in this blog to let you sufficiently in on my life, but also keep myself employable and then I remembered the Iceberg Theory. This theory alludes to how only a small part (about ten percent) of an iceberg is visible above water, with the rest hidden from view beneath the water. So let’s dive in.
You probably think the image above is fake and I generated it with Photoshop or some app and you’d be right. (Shoutout FakeChatForWhatsApp) But it’s actually based on a true story no cap. Yeah, I got a fourteen minute voicenote and that was my genuine reaction to it. Now I had to pause my fire music to listen to the voicenote.
