Hello my name is Demayne and I came across this community by perusing the internet. To answer the third question:
When I was in college many moons ago, I studied while listening to music. Especially solving complex math and engineering problems.
So for coding. Its not a problem. I listen to jazz, slow jams, or whatever mood I am in at the momemt.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
