I'm finished with focusing solely on goals.
I've spent most of my professional life worrying about how I present myself to others and it all started with this sentence: "Hey dad, I think I like boys."
From time to time you hear people in the developer community talk about how we should be more ethical. This usually revolves around A.I. and if a driverless car should prioritize passengers or pedestrians. Yet today I'm going to tell you a story about how I refused to work on a project I felt violated my code of ethics.
I recently came across a tweet by Kyle Shook that simply read What is your coding folder called? I didn’t think much about it as I’d used the same folder structure for years. After reading some of the replies it occurred to me that I really should rethink how I store my code. This is the system I came up with.
Like I talked about in my last post I decided not to set resolutions for this year but to instead layout a roadmap. In the past, I would normally set out some S.M.A.R.T. Goals and then write quarterly update posts to let people know how I was doing. I still plan on doing quarterly reviews as a way to keep me on track and to let you know what's going on.
