re: Women in tech: Being a developer and a mom 🤪 VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

As an alternative point of view, I'm a dev dad.

I work a full time job, one that enabled my wife to give up her job completely to be with our baby (now 14 weeks old).

My wife is a fucking soldier (excuse the language, but it's needed here). I had first hand experience of how hard it is, while on paternity leave, and she enables me to do my job.

Without her, there is no fucking way I could be a dev. I go to bed, at the latest, 9pm every night because I look after our daughter in the morning. My wife takes care of the night and during the day.

She allows me to do the job I love, and I don't understand how mums can juggle being a mum and a normal job, let alone a Dev!

Mad respect to you.
