Quarantine — Day 18

Let's all crack that Toptal interview!

This post is part of an ongoing series in which I document my journey through the COVID-19 quarantine. See Day 1 for full context.

Quick update

Full focus on releasing Cracking the Toptal Interview, my new guide to help developers get into Toptal. I put a good amount of effort in the landing page. I’m ready now to start creating more useful content as I have a way to capture traffic.

Wife told me we’ll be on quarantine until April 27th. Sounds like I’ll be able to produce some badass content the next few weeks.
