Surviving the Doldrums - What To Do When Your Job Is Slow

twitter logo github logo ・1 min read

What do you do when you have down time at work?

My list includes

  • Reading: I learned most of what I know about code from reading books/articles/blogs/etc. I try to sharpen my skills when I have the moment
  • Enki: Reading is great, but it can be boring. Enki (a code skills app) makes it fun to learn new skills
  • Enterprise Exploration: I am always learning about new products and services that are offered by my company outside of the products that I work on. It helps me understand the broader ecosystem of my company and our industry.

What about you?
