Nevertheless, Stevie Oberg Coded

I continued to code in 2019 because...

tl;dr - Personally, because I enjoy it & professionally, because I got a new job.

2018 began as a rough year regarding my career. I was feeling burned out and I knew I needed to get a new job.

So I started applying and in November of 2018, I accepted a remote job working on an entirely different system and using entirely different technology. Frankly it's been a godsend!

It's given me the structure I desired and, most importantly, the mental space to work on personal projects in my free time and rediscover why I'm in Tech to begin with because I enjoy creating things with code.

I deserve credit for...

  • Quitting a bad job?
  • Starting to interact with, instead of just lurking in, a community

I hope to see my tech community...

Grow. In numbers, in character, and in diversity.
