Discussion on: Is coding a work-for-free popularity contest?

I haven't done a hackathon in awhile. I did one at my last job, but for sure all the other ones I know are definitely looking for free work.

I guess I feel the customers/clients aren't impressed with devs at all. As a consultant, I target HR, and even though I know how to speak their language, they're either willfully ignorant/oblivious or timid.

Your path is very intriguing (from dev to sales). I believe you are a double-edge sword now, in a good way!

Have you written down your path talking about such transition? I'd love to learn out more.

Why don't you write about it? I'm very curious to know your thoughts on this transition.
