Hi fishes, Is 8gb Macbook air is enough for development, ? I am looking to keep it for longer time.. currently MERN stack but will work on large projects later on

I would suggest 16gigs considering the cloud native environment requirements

Better go for 16gb with multiple processes running on(which is the case with devs… like chrome, visualization software etc) simultaneously that will eat up ram. If you are purchasing the M2 version its ssd speed is very less compared to the M1 and when it starts using swap memory it will become laggy. 8gb is good for only casual users.

I am going for m1 only .. 1.04 L for 16 gb one..


8 gigs is low now a days. You might need to close browser tabs and other applications while running any server. Manageable if you are just using for coding and going to deploy on cloud.

I’ve been accepted to a M7 deferred MBA program where I have the option to enroll within the next 2-5 years. My plan is to enroll in ~2 years and I’m curious to hear if anyone has advice on how to plan for it financially. My firm has tuition reimbursement but it’s taxed so I’ll have to pay ~30% of tuition once I return. For living expenses, would you recommend that I start hoarding cash in anticipation for the program or should I invest now and take out loans when the time comes?

Fair question to ask or will it scare them if I do?

Got promoted last year in October. Got an offer back in March 2021. My current company retained me stating that they will promote me in October but compensated me with a cash bonus. Things took a wrong turn and I landed up in a shitty project.Zero technical growth.

Got another offer similar to previous one. Location is my hometown. Profile is good.

If I resigned, I will lose the retention bonus & won’t be getting paid for the next 3 months + festive season is starting.

What are people’s thoughts on CS masters degrees? I’m not talking about the professional ones designed for non-CS undergrads, but a proper masters degree from a good school. I have 3 years work experience as a data engineer, but would love to dive deeper into ML and a degree seems like a good option. Will companies value it? I don’t have a CS background in undergrad, but most prereqs are knocked out.
