I’m not sure whether charging blindly into fixing an unfamiliar system in an unfamiliar language/framework is a core skill for (senior) developers, or madness, or maybe a little bit of both

“The price for being the best is always having to be the best” - nanny ogg, lords and ladies

Quoted dhh’s tweet:

Remember when “working real hard” had a goal? Like getting out of a shitty situation, so you could stop wearing yourself thin. Now the prize for “working real hard” and making it big is that you get to “work real hard” forever. Hustle culture sucks.
