a woman from British Gas encouraging them to become boiler repair personnel so they could get their “own uniform and drive a van”. I sighed at my society, picked up my laptop and left.
An open letter to less experienced developers
Paul Robinson

What’s wrong with being boiler repair personnel? Is it impossible to believe that someone could find meaning and satisfaction from this occupation? Not everyone can be a freaking developer. This comment is so loaded with condescension it makes me want to vomit. Maybe the woman at British Gas “sighed” at the old bald dude trying to inspire 11-year-old girls with pictures of people who died nearly 2 centuries ago.

Like what you read? Give Thomas Leupp a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
