🌯 This resource was originally published by Daniel Zacarias at Folding Burritos. That site and all of its content has moved over here (career.pm), a new venture co-founded by Daniel. You will find there are a lot more resources on this site, so feel free to explore! 🗺 If you're only looking for Folding Burritos resources, you can still find them all here.
