Discussion on: Confession Time

This post is exactly what I needed. I live in a part of the country where React and .NET are king and I have a decade's worth of experience in Python back end performance and optimization. I had to leave my last 9-5 code job due to illness a few years ago and am just now trying to find a new one and it has been hell. The imposter syndrome has been SO REAL and I feel like I'm either over the hill, or was never that good to begin with and I'm not even 30. Thank you thank you thank you for this post (and the comments that say "who cares what meaningless shiny things are attached to an online profile somewhere") because I've needed a boost to keep from outright quitting. Thank you so much!
