Been a long while, again. Sorry y’all.
I got laid off February 4th of this year.
It stings. Truly does. I have no other recourse as far as living situation. I could go live with my mom but that is less than ideal. I have/had some money saved up and have taken on a wonderful and wonderfully paying freelance job, but I will need permanent work in the next 5 or 6 months. So if y’all know anyone hiring a mid-level frontend engineer, tell them I said hey! 👋🏾
I wrote about being laid off and a post about leveling up and lessons I learned along the way.
That’s all the stuff I’ve written, but there are other links out there too!
🔗 Cassidy Williams newsletter is fantastic. You should sign up if you haven’t already. I mean, you probably are but still. - link
🔗 Shawn Wang is a pretty big deal and probably one of my favorite developers on the frontend. You should check out his blog, too, and that fantastic scrollbar. - link
🔗 Kent C. Dodds has a course coming out. Check it out because he’s really good at this stuff. - link
🔗 DevNikki is a fantastic developer you should follow on Twitter. She’s really smart, really driven, and would make a good addition to any team. - link
Bye for now and stay safe out there. It’s wild and crazy. 🦠
