New project

Posted by kevinup on May 18, 2008

I’ve been in a somewhat of a developer slump recently.

It is interesting that when I was working with fun, dynamic, intelligent people that I enjoyed blogging and talking about developer issues. Now that the great people I worked with have drifted to other companies or projects, I find myself working with people who think writing code on my own time is weird and that going to a “Day of .net” is a waste of time.

I’m still passionate about development, about Agile, and about .Net. My goal is to start writing one quality post a week, but we’ll see.

  1. Need to spell check that shit brother. ๐Ÿ™‚ But I understand what you mean, it is tough to be stuck with 9-5 developers when you are much more into it.

  2. It sucks you work with people like that. All i can say is keep going to DoDN’s and Code Camps and hang out with people that are passionate about this stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I agree. While I agree that in Agile we are not supposed to be putting in 80 hour weeks, that doesn’t mean we should just put in our 40 and quit. If I didn’t go home in the evening play around with “other stuff”, I would go crazy. Most of the good things I have brought to a job have been learned “on my own time”… I have been a part of a couple good teams in my life, and is a night and day difference between working with those 9-5 developers.

    That post frequency suggestion didn’t happen; I know how hard that is. Let me know if you want to collaborate on some new projects. I’ve always got a bunch of creative ideas that I’m incapable of following through on because of time and technical knowledge.
