Can you really learn a language properly with Duolingo? To the point in being able to use it professionally? I feel like it's no rival to Rosetta Stone in that regard.

I'm a polyglot, and I find Duolingo is good for practicing vocabulary but in terms of acquiring the grammar, syntax, and spoken nuance of a language, it's just not effective.

Not Chinese.

No, nor can Rosetta Stone for you unless you are using the features to communicate with native speakers; most language learning is patching together multiple offerings - DuoLingo is great for vocab, but then you need to actually practice writing paragraphs to improve writing, go have conversations every week with a native speaker, etc to get to a professional level.

I haven’t looked at DuoLingo and maybe they added more features to connect you with native speakers

Hi all! What are the differences between senior/staff SWE and software architects? Are architects still a thing? I'm causally searching for a new position and I've noticed staff and even some senior SWE roles sound like they have more leadership and architectural design responsibilities and focus on coding much less. Is this normal? I would definitely like to continue mentoring, but I also don't want to spend my entire day in meetings. 😕

In theory, Agile is like being in a "union light"?

There's collective bargaining by the engineering team about what tasks they take on (Grooming / Sprint Planning ~ Contracts).
There's regular feedback and round tables to see how to improve things (Retros ~ Union meetings).

Anyone else see this, or am I just being silly?
