I recently wrote an article about being an unemployed junior developer, coming back into the industry after 20 years at the age of 40.
Now I'm about to write the second article in that series, the "perseverance wins" article I was hopeing to be able to write at this point. First I thought I'd host an ama to get some insight in what topics would be interesting to hear more about.
I'm hoping for some good discussions in the comments that I can draw from when writing the article.
- I live in Sweden
- I have a wife, two dogs, three kids and four letters; ADHD
- I got many job offerings after posting the article, from both big and small companies
- None of the many people that contacted me was from HR or a recruiter, they were all management or developers
- I now work with web development and hoping to move into game development in the future
As software gets more and more integrated into our lives, the industrialization of its crafting process becomes inevitable. But the over-generalization of software engineering can be crushing the creative side of programming.
