Launching a product is a battle against time. Nowadays, immediacy is required from every company because if you don't launch what I need, someone else will.

The rise of tech companies has caused a higher adoption of technology among new generations. People are learning how to code in order to keep up with the times, or to reinvent themselves professionally to unlock new paths in their career.

The more we code, the more we need to make it a sustainable practice. Quantity almost never implies quality.
