Unfortunately, I can't go on like this forever without a contract/full time position to support me.
Moving forward, I will be working with #React/#Redux a majority of the time.
The idea will always be to build useful, small things to learn more about the tools, but the ethos and values around FOSS cannot take prime importance for some time, for me. Quick example - avoiding #AWS or #CSSinJS.
I'm not a fan of framework-bloat or over-engineering, but if it must be learned, it must be learned...
@bignose I absolutely intend to figure out how I can devote *some* time every week once I have a full time position, though. FOSS is one thing I really get a kick out of. 😀
Do what you need in order to pay the bills, but try to never take any backward steps. #SurveillanceCapitalism and #Monopolist #Corporations will suck everything you have and never thank you; give them nothing that can be avoided.
@bignose Thank you! I hate not to be doing this for 8 hours every week day, but like you said, bills must be paid. :)
I agree! That has in fact been what I have heard from almost all my friends. Working corporate is a hard and thankless life.
@bignose For me, FOSS *should* be sustainable and free from corporate/big-tech dependence. I'm quite early in my FOSS career as well, but that's how I personally view it. :)
I mean them as things to be avoided until you're really sure you can't do without them. Which is basically when it's a sound architecture decision.
