Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

The life of a software developer

I've officially worked 31 of the last 37 hours. Ugh. There was 3 hours last night that I got to drive home and have dinner with Julie and Abbie. This was followed by a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. code-producing extravaganza, followed by 2 hours of sleep, and time enough to commute to work this morning. And I'm still pounding the keyboard...

Update: Finally tally ~ 33 of 39, I think that's a record. Let's hope I don't fall asleep on the way home!

Didn't you *just* start this new job? Are they already beating you? And you say you are getting calls from other recruters... maybe you should call them back. Or is this self inflicted pain?

Things definitely have to change - hopefully this is the last big push for long hours.

Wait until after the testing gets going. There are sure to be more nights with the changes that will be returned....
