Jessica Rose on Twitter: "Tech Twitter: Have you ever experienced burnout? What happened and how did you recover? RT for reach?💖"
I identify so hard with some of these & also really makes me want to do that thing again where I disappear into marin/sonoma on a bike.

Programmer Competency Matrix | Sijin Joseph
interesting. as a commenter pointed out it's missing some things like business understanding, project management, mentorship. it's also pretty specific to non-web programming and a little outdated (git is a L1 competency now). also books get super out of date fast yo.

Big Co. vs Small Co. & Job vs. Career Stability « Accidentally in Code
"But, if you are not a cis-white-man failing upwards in the valley, how do you create career security? Some ideas.

-It’s not enough to be good at what you do, you have to document and prove that you are good at what you do.
-Be strategic about visibility. I get plenty of Token Women invitations, and I get myself uninvited from almost all of them. People want to talk about “diversity” but very few want to do the hard work of inclusivity. Being known for being a woman in tech and not for my technical achievements does not take my career in the direction that I want it to go in. (Note: I haven’t done the best job of this, but it’s something I’m very aware of).
-Build your network before you need it. Not cynically – genuinely connect with awesome people over the things you have in common.
-In the long term, no-one is going to look out for you, but you. Consider what options you are creating for yourself… and what you are shutting down."

Getting to Know You. | Evgenia Got Free
This kind of thing is what makes me want to actually invest, etc. Especially staring down that I might/will have to support Jamie, and possibly my parents. And I don't know if Beck will ever make enough to be able to help.
