I'm really curious about the cross section of this with non-men in tech. (I guess I'll make a poll for it next tweet)
People who work in tech:
If not for the money, would you rather be working in a different field?
@zkat I think so, at least for a while longer. my strongest skills align very nicely and there’s nothing else I think I’d prefer to do for work.
i’ve been able to maintain strong compartmentalization between work programming and hobby programming, which has been working out for me so far, even under pandemic conditions.
@zkat it’s hard to decouple from the money aspect, though, because that stability helps me spend my time outside of work learning and doing other things
