Ask HN: How to learn best practices when you have no one to teach you?

I am currently working for a startup and am one of 3 developers. Most of my work revolves around building the API in Node + Express as well as some small projects with MongoDB. The other developers don't really assist me since they have their own projects to work on, and, honestly, they have less experience and knowledge than I do.

So my question is: What is the best way for me to go about learning best practices in API development, or using MongoDB, or even just being a better software developer in general?

I am a technical manager and currently in a leadership role. My manager who is an executive, keeps telling me“ don’t talk like an engineer, talk like a leader” when I go to him for any people or operational Issues.

Any pointers can be of great help.

Ask HN: How to create a service similar to Patreon?

I'd like to create a service similar to Patreon, I know how to do the technical side but not so sure about financial side: how do I charge users to send the funds to other type of users (creators), while subtracting a small percent? How does it need to be set up from the POV of financial compliance? Can it be reported as "payment to support Creator xyz" without a specific product? Does the company need to register as a bank or something similar to a bank? Financial services company? Where can I find some relevant resources, and how can I narrow down my research so that I don't have to read everything about all types of financial services but only more or less relevant info? (located in the US).

Ask HN: How to find profitable side project idea?

Hi there HNers,

Last summer I worked on a startup as lead developer. I learnt about running a startup and talking to users while working there. I have now quit working there to focus on my studies (second year university in London).

I would like to work on a side project that eventually would lead to some revenues this summer. My question is, how did you find problem(s) to solve ?

I have read books and blogs suggesting that the best problem is the one that I have faced before. I find it difficult to do this when almost every problem that I found, there has always been existing solution or the solution can be solved with some quick searches.

Any idea or thought is really appreciated. Thank you.

#How the 45th president of the US spends/wastes his time

But Drumpf, who often wakes before 6 a.m., is never in the Oval during those hours, according to six sources with direct knowledge.

Instead, he spends his mornings in the residence, watching TV, reading the papers, and responding to what he sees and reads by phoning aides, members of Congress, friends, administration officials and informal advisers.

For those same schedules, Drumpf has had about 77 hours scheduled for meetings that include policy planning, legislative strategy and video recordings.

Something like https://www.susanjfowler.com/blog/2016/8/13/so-you-want-to-learn-physics would be ideal, but more focused on applied math.

One idea I had was to complete the MIT open courseware courses for the Applied and Pure math fields
