It's that time of the week again. So wonderful devs, what did you learn this week? It could be programming tips, career advice etc.

Summarize a concept that is new to you.
And remember, if something you learnt was a big win for you, then you know where to drop it as well.๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฟ ![A show host dancing a winning in their seat](https://media.giphy.com/media/l3q2Z6S6n38zjPswo/giphy.gif)

I learned about the power of LinkedIn and using social media to build community! ๐ŸŒŽ I posted on LinkedIn about being accepted as one of AWS' Community Builders in the data category and in less than a week, my post has been seen by 49,000+ people so far.

It was an especially cool experience because it has prompted a lot of interest from my network, mentors, mentees, and friends who want to know how to get into tech, coding, software engineering, and app development. I'm actually looking to launch a YouTube channel this month because of this. #ThePowerOfContent

I'm pretty sure I already knew it, but I had to relearn it the hard way this week.
