About

We get it. You’re the type of person that LOVES digging into the hardest problems and figuring out the most logical, efficient answer (aka beautifully written code) possible. You pride yourself on being the expert in any situation. And when you find that you’re not the expert, you are more excited than frustrated because that means you get to dive in and learn what you need to learn to become the expert.

So …

if (that describes you) { echo 'Keep Scrolling'; } else { echo 'Go about your day'; }
