Nobody tells you that professional software engineering is 98% figuring out make your build and tooling work, and 2% actually designing and writing code.
@anaulin So what you're saying is that if I switch JS frameworks every six months, I can achieve "five nines" in something?
Good God isn't that the truth!
@anaulin Yup, including a big chunk of UI design/debugging.
@anaulin LOL 🤣
@anaulin Also explains why those of us who have been on the job for over a decade: don't want to try a new build system; don't want to try a new bug tracker; don't want to try a new VCS. These days I'm able to spend 90% of my time writing useful code!

@anaulin My first ESP32 project took two days to setup the tool chain, 15 minutes to test the first program.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
