I’m a programmer . . .
Job searches for me go like this: I’m old, I have to compete with people half my age, but I’ve worked in Orange County since forever so I know some people, and I can write good code in interviews, which the majority of programmers who show up for interviews can’t.
I was out of work on January 5. It’s now January 24. I have three job offers and picked the one I like best.
Moral of the story: Learn to code, kids . . .
Thus spoke The Programmer.
