re: The Value Of Your Time VIEW POST


I guess my only comment would be: is it open sourced? Make that a precondition, find a way to get the code out in the open. The benefits would be enormous.

Full-time non-tech job: 44 (including commute)

I find it insane that you're not working full time as a software developer. What's driving this?


is it open sourced?

Of course! It'd be an extension to a codebase that's already on Github. I feel strongly about this.

Thank you, that's kind to say. Probably poor self-sale skills. I did not attend college after high school, just now at 27 starting my bachelors, and am lucky enough to be currently employed in a job that would otherwise require one. The few promising offers that have come around would have been paycuts, which has just not been viable. I learned to code in the first place always intending it to be a hobby, and then fell in love.

I have a good feeling about this summer, I've been getting closer and closer and seeking outside career help.

You are still young! I only started doing this tippytappy business at 35.

I've been getting closer and closer and seeking outside career help.

Good luck - I honestly mean that. You write well, and you've built some interesting projects. If there's any way I can help let me know.

Thank you so much :) I'll more likely than not be posting about whatever happens...
