Hey everyone! That's my very first post here. I'm a digital marketing manager who switched career to work as a community manager in the video gaming industry in my 30s (yikes, that was scary AF).
Recently I had to leave my company and searching for some connections to continue my journey in that specific industry.

Humour me for a moment...

I work in Wealth & Asset Management. I see a tonne of demand for data & analytics, but most of the work is to make data accessible and to solve for fragmented data structures.

What I don't see is the innovative use cases for the data. I hear lots of people saying data & analytics can help WM's provide better advice or more tailored advice but I don't necessarily buy that. I get the use cases for retailers etc but not so much in this sector.

Enlighten me please?

Any good OTT content to watch?


Often in the interview, interviewer asks about how virtual dom works or what is react or where is implementation of setTimeoutEffect(in v6 or ESMAScripts). Or Even in Nodejs interview they ask about event loop or v8 engine r libuv which is not required while programming with nodejs. I was just curios why they ask these, because in actual development I dont think these concepts are much helpful (even if those are the once we build things on), these are only for what is happening in background
