Episode 59 / 2019.12.09
Andrew Welch, Patrick Harrington, Jennifer Blumberg, Jonathan Melville, Matt Stein
On this episode, we have a roundtable discussion on developer burnout spearheaded by Ben Parizek of Barrrel Strength Design, along with our guest Ben Croker of PutYourLightsOn.
We talk about all of our personal experiences with developer burnout, in terms of what it feels like, what and whom it impacts, and also how to deal with it.
We center the talk around Ben’s struggle with his own burnout, but then discover that every single one of us has felt it to one degree or another. And so we also talk about ways to cope, and strategies for avoiding or mitigating developer burnout.
Apologies for the dog in the background… Aya is a disservice dog. It’s better to burn out than fade away…
