wow. he's very talented. i wish him the best of luck. it's an extremely competitive business, especially where he's headed. that being said, i miss being in it every morning that i crawl out of bed. i've never had so much fun with a "job" nor have i had a chance to meet so many interesting people and have such a positive impact on their lives.

i'm 39 and still trying to find my niche. i know photography is it but right now being a code monkey is paying the bills. hoping to find my way back very soon. software just makes me angry and i don't know how many 80+ hour weeks i have left in me.

if there's anything that i might be able to do for your son, get in touch. most of my contacts where in socal but i may still have a couple of names in the bay area.

The nice thing about IT is, you can usually find a better situation. Life is too short to be angry and tired all the time.

Not a code monkey but application support, both IIS/ASP and Weblogic based custom apps along with normal C# crap. Kept me up long hours this week (got today off as a result) but usually not too bad.

Not to totally hijack bomber's thread but that's one of the reasons we moved up here.

Definitely looking to try and flip things around but it's difficult with my position. I'm a software engineer for a massive industrial automation company. I work on projects for the advanced technology group (focus on cloud and mobile platforms), delivering projects to customers (hence the 80+ hr weeks) as well as working on their energy management solution. I also travel 50-75% time. When I'm not traveling, I work completely from home so that's somewhat of a silver lining.

Life is what you make it, change is on the wind, etc. Giving myself 2 years to figure it out.
