Sorry about collecting emails and then not posting anything for a while! This newsletter will explain some things and hopefully give some insights to new developers as well.
Last year around this time I was looking for work and getting some nibbles on the things I put out there. The end of the year ended with an internship at dev.to. I had a blast working with the team despite my shortcomings. I figured by the time I moved, sometime in the summer, I’d have work. I didn’t think that here, in November, I’d still be looking for a permanent, full-time mid-level developer job.
Interviews with Automattic and Microsoft
This summer I had interviews with both Automattic, makers of WordPress.com and Microsoft within a couple weeks of each other.
