Apparently every software engineer except me gets hit up by recruiters every day on linkedin.

      “Father” is my favorite. Every time I see that I’m reminded of the painful fact that I’ll likely never be a parent. It’s bad enough I’ll never be a Thought Leader, CEO, or probably even CTO. I don’t need these self-proclaimed DILFs to make it even worse.

      That said, I sometimes wonder if I should put “ex-Amazon or Former Amazonian” in my header.

    Have you enabled the “open to opportunities” yet? Add some hot buzzwords like machine learning, devops, you get my point.

      Yeah but I’ve been reluctant to list those things since I don’t know too much about them 👶🏼

      It took 2 seconds to find your real identity on LinkedIn. Remember, this is “Blind”.

      We have an array of fruits, snacks and drinks at my new place of employ. The funny thing is that our banana bowl is always running low, because they’re easier to eat than the other things. I’m also back on the other side of the country where I belong.
