Another one down...

Another week down at the task force and just like the last one, this one was very interesting as well.

I learned a lot of things in this week especially technical-wise as it was packed with practical sessions where we were learning a new framework and getting more insight into how things are done in the company on a day-to-day basis.

Nest.js was the talk of the week as we went through it from scratch and honestly i think we made unimaginable progress. I couldn't imagine getting this far in a new framework in just one week. Learning everything from setting up, building CRUD endpoints, authentication, security and documentation in just five days is amazing and all thanks to a very gifted member of the Awesomity team.

Something else that i really liked in this week was getting to search the net for different gestures used in communication around the world and how different cultures communicate. It's crazy how much information one can give up without saying a single word. That was also a great experience that i had this last week and definitely something to remember. It's very important to know that one's ways are not everyone's and realize that we need to blend in with the crowd that we're in at the time.

Another definite highlight would be today, More specifically the '5 WHYs'. To be more descriptive, the 5 WHYs is one of the many techniques used in the critical thinking process the helps to identify the cause of the problem. I liked this one in particular because of how it's so effortless and natural and yet so effective. If you're reading this and don't know about this technique already, you should definitely check it out.

Long story short, this was yet another educational, insightful and fun week and i can't wait to see what comes next.
