Reading the barometer of my twitter and facebook. I'm sensing a large storm of software dev tech folks leaving the industry or company in large numbers. The past year has pushed tech everywhere to entirely new limits at the cost of everyone's mental health.
The constant meetings. Violated boundaries upsetting work/life balance. Remote working isn't a paradise especially if you and they aren't prepared for it. Global day off? We can do better.
Seriously considering starting "onlydevs", where developers can sell video of themselves reducing tech debt, removing large chunks of code, etc...
My genuine fear with this startup is the communities in which it is deeply rooted won't show up in enough numbers to support us. I want to be so surprised that I melt down into a puddle of happy tears and get to see this thing happen for real. Fingers tightly crossed!
Short but sweet and chill stream today while I work on software packaging and releases. Swing by to say hi.
