Extremely well put. I admittedly, am a straight white male, but I do see the struggle of under represented groups in software development; the wasted talent of women and minorities who are pushed out or who never persue is such a shame.

As for the rest, I also feel like the coding (usually anyway) is the easy part, company leadership can turn what is otherwise an amazing job into a waking nightmare, and people skills are way undervalued by interviewers.
