A little sad tonight, but I've made the decision to leave web development. I won't be quitting my job tomorrow or anything, and I don't know what my next step will be, but I know it isn't this. I started in this field charged up to learn everything I could get my hands on. Now I'm too burned out to care about learning the shiny new thing. I WANT to love it again, but I think that time is over.

The current state of web development is exhausting. I got into it because it was fun and I got to create rather than only fix when working in IT. But now it's become this mountain of stuff to learn and I don't know if I have the energy or the want to do it. I don't know what my next step will be, but my hope is that in the next 5 years I'll be in a different career, preferably working for myself.

@cameron, this might be something you find interesting.

Coming from Sass, I thought I'd hate styled-components. I think I still like Sass more, but I definitely see the appeal.

@lunduke I went to your site to subscribe to your RSS feed. The web developer in me wanted to convert your table to a css grid and make it responsive. Don't get me wrong, I don't want you to change a thing about it. My web dev OCD just kicked in. :yay:

Negative Documentation:

A new phrase I'm making, for those times when there's documentation, the documentation is wrong, and you spend an additional 3 hours trying to decypher the mess before finding out that 0 documentation is not the worst possible state of affairs.

"A group of 50 states and territories in the US have launched an investigation into Google's dominance of the online advertising market."


When you give a two weeks to your company and the HR director pulls you into her office to understand why, then tells you something will have to change in that department because you're the 6 person to quit that position this year.

What do you think of job recruiters? If these four options don't cover it, leave a reply.

So, some good news and a question.

As of last night, I accepted a position with a new company! πŸŽ‰ πŸŽ‰

This position is actually a 6 month contract position with the possibility of getting extended instead of as a full-time employee.

So my question is, do you think it's better to be a contractor or a full-time employee? I've never actually worked as a contractor before so it's the one thing I'm hesitant about.

Has anyone ever used a company to write their resume for them? If so, was it worth it?

A bit random and very specific, but has anyone been able to serve a gatsby site from a docker container? Been reading over the gatsby docker image documentation this evening and trying to just use the node image but no luck so far.

I know, I know, I'm super late to this game but..... is freakin' awesome.
