Here we are, at the beginning

December 9, 2018 - General - 2 minutes

Welcome! I suppose that’s a good way to begin :)

I’m currently 10 years into a software engineering career and have had many ups and downs during that time. There has been much to learn, the industry itself incredibly fast-moving, there are so many fields to work in and for each, there is a vast array of choices to make and knowledge to draw from.

From the euphoric highs of accomplishing seemingly impossible tasks to the devastating lows of breaking production systems and dealing with things like “imposter syndrome”, I’d like to share primarily experiences and lessons that would have helped a younger version of myself with the intention that these things might resonate for you in your own way and push along the road to success.

I mostly will be writing about the software domain, but with a focus on learning, and perhaps a few posts about music.

In order to provide a sense of clarity in my own life, I’ve been journaling almost daily and have often thought that there are some things in there that I’d like to share.

This blog will mostly be an extension of my own personally discovered truths - which will probably change over time - but that’s part of the fun and although publishing your own thoughts can be a scary experience, I was recently inspired to do so by the great speakers from the YOW 2018 Melbourne event.
