Ryan Kon worked in big companies, started his own startup, and now runs a web development firm. We talk about how to be more robust and antifragile in your tech career, tech people being incapable to grow, tail-call optimisation, code editors, the weird “nerd fantasy” of remote work, and much more.
Quite an impressive Ask HN thread from a 74-year-old programmer who is 57 years in the business. Comments by other senior folks about how they developed in their career, pretty sweet. Don’t give ageism a chance!
