I could never stay in the same place. Working in a branch that is continuously evolving is a blessing to me.
For most of my life, I have been told to ‘just wait a while’. But waiting was never my thing. When I discovered this vast and dynamic industry of developers, I immediately felt at home. Opening up computers turned into making web pages. Making web pages turned into full-stack development. Slowly I uncovered the depth and breadth of the world of a Software Developer.
I have always had a strong dislike for repetitive tasks. Both in my work and in my personal life I tend to automate as much as possible. My computer is full of scripts for things I do on a regular basis. Instead of walking through a release process, I can launch a script and do something more valuable in the meantime. I’d rather spend 6 hours developing automation, than one hour per week doing the same thing over and over again.
