• 2019-12-29 Sabbatical check-in. Reflecting on 8 months of full-time self-study.

  • 2019-12-30 Programmers Should Plan For Lower Pay
    Why do we get as much as we get? And should we plan for getting less? I don’t know, I remember I was thinking about it ~10 years ago. I had kind of anxiety or even imposter syndrom at that point of time. Since then I don’t really reflect on this particular subject, mostly because I feel why and also because other aspects of software engineering is interesting to me (apart from programming itself): what is the best application for my skillset for both myself and society; which jobs are “no go” and “not good” for society; when is it time to go develop stuff around health/democracy/other important stuff to me?
