👩‍💻 Career and Business Stuff
Daniel Vassallo
Amazon paid me $978,931 for my last 2yrs there.

If I averaged that with the number of artifacts I produced (mostly Word docs), it would likely be around $20K-$40K per piece as well.

Compensation is decoupled from effort in the knowledge economy.
🙉 Life Stuff
Avishai Ish-Shalom
When you tell me you are a "senior" engineer, I expect you:
Read RFCs
Write documents
Present to your peers
Know how to discuss in writing
Understand tradeoffs
Back arguments with data
Know how to manage meetings
Self manage
Prove there's a problem before you implement a solution
⚙️ Tech Stuff
Justin Searls
Nobody learns how to write good software without writing lots lots of bad software first. Don't let fear that your code will suck paralyze you.
