JS-Assessment prepped and ready for easy pairing - no setup required; just click on 'show live' to view the tests. Alternatively, if you want a fresh version for yourself, go to the advanced settings in Gomix and import from Github using this repo rmurphey/js-assessment

Here’s a cool video on becoming a top class developer:
TLDW: Haseeb an ex professional poker player, started learning development last year, went onto mentoring his bootcamp group and now has a top job with AirBnb (who use React btw)
He also gave away 1/2 million in poker winnings to charity and gives 32% of his earnings away.
All about the art of learning!
