me in my first tech job interview: I like running my own mail servers and I program in my spare time too. Tech is awesome!

me after 2 years on the job: i like doing things with wood…

@daniel_bohrer In my first (and only) tech interview I taught the people a fundamental aspect of the programming language they use as part of their jobs.

Needless to say they passed.

@daniel_bohrer totally true. The fastest way to cure oneself from passion for programming is entering the job market.

@daniel_bohrer well it took me 3 burnouts and 12 years but now I'm actively looking for a hobby that is not computer

… or, i would be, if this baby wasn't eating away all my time

@daniel_bohrer literally me and how i got my job.

(tho i liked doing things with wood before then too)
