First 2 Weeks as a Front End Web Developer

Just wanted to update everyone on my story since my post about leaving Mezzobit. I’ve got to say, after 2 weeks as, finally, a full time front end web developer, I am really enjoying it a heck of a lot!  I’m now a FE Dev for Worldnow and it’s a dynamic and exciting place with co workers that seem like really good natured, friendly people. I honestly like spending time with them and we all do the best we can to keep the stress down for each other while getting things done. At least that’s the way it feels so far.

Reply to article: The Procrastination Doom Loop—and How to Break It

This was my reply to the Atlantic article: The Procrastination Doom Loop—and How to Break It The article can be found at: http://ow.ly/ObfH1  for those who want to read more on the matter. “I think this article actually lends credence to the fact that everyone’s choice strategy nowadays seems to be to “gamify” everything. Make everything seem like a game and you’ll never think you’re working. I personally don’t back the strategy or think it helps out at work very much. Some games are really annoying and I don’t want to play them, I just delete them from my devices. You can’t do that with work though, might as well just going […]
