The year 2020 had been a roller coaster ride probably for all of us.
I spent a lot of time cooped up in my home. Though this was the time when I discovered an ample amount of resources and opportunities that are available in the tech industry.
I have compiled a list of resources which includes cheatsheets, roadmaps, interview preparation resources, design resources, etc.
It also has a collection of opportunities that are available in tech.
While most of the opportunities would be useful for student developers, the resources are for all.
Also, I've open-sourced the repository. I would love to have contributors!
Link to the repo: here.
