Hi Antti! 👋 I'm also new to the community!

I'm interested to hear how a typical working day in life sounds like. I guess being an undergrad, it didn't even occur to me that writing code would be abstracted away from a technical role.

" most of my daily work life has been abstracted away from writing code"

That's why when you say the above, it really piqued my curiosity!

Hey Leslie - I like that question!

Unfortunately, it's more boring and less technical than one would probably think :) Instead of writing most of the code myself, I communicate with stakeholders, collaborate on specifications and basicly just update and prioritize the backlog for the dev team in co-operation with other product owners.

Luckily, even in enterprisey dev teams, usually you don't have to drop programming if you don't want to! It's a huge blessing that roles in IT are typically fairly flexible.
