Happy Friday, y’all —
Here’s a few bits and bobs that came my way this week.
instead of geometry and trig, I wish my high school courses were about taxes, retirement plans and investing. how did you learn these life skills? from your parents as a kid, or did you learn on your own as n adult?
It’s strange to me that in all the conversation about developer productivity, I rarely see people talk about the cost of turnover. There is loss of time and money and a strain on morale due to interviewing, onboarding, instability, and the shift of group dynamics.
Non-white men in tech. You may think you’re being paid well, but it’s incredibly likely you’re being paid less than your colleagues in the same role and level. Ask your colleagues what they make. If you’re one of those men, please offer it. I was once making 75k less.
Have a great weekend, y’all,
