Frontend Interview Mistakes, Netflix's Crisis & Crawling in Data Science
By In Plain English • Issue #25 • View online
This week we bring you a true story of how a $200k developer ended up unemployed - left penniless in his quest to generate passive income. 
For the first time in a decade, Netflix has started losing subscribers and expects to lose 2 million more. “The streaming giant laid off 25 marketing staffers following the drop and is reining in spending.” What does this crisis mean for the future of the streaming platform?
Meanwhile, Airbnb announces that its employees are free to work remotely for as long as they prefer, without any effect on their pay. This comes at a time when employees at companies like Google are experiencing a pay cut if they choose to work from home.
In other news, writer Davis David outlines the role of web crawling in Data Science, provides a guide on building a web crawler tool, and recommends no-code web crawling tools for data science projects.
In addition, writer and front-end developer, Isak Solheim speaks about his experiences in front-end interviews and provides his input on what to do and what to avoid.
