It’s funny that we talked about work life balance last week, since this morning I stayed up until three working on a feature (Booz Allen project) that will be demoed to a principle this afternoon.

No matter how you spin it, computer science is a young field, especially compared to the other industries Domers go to. As such, there’s still a lot to figure out (in other news, Water: Wet). Today I want to talk about the figuring we need to do with respect to career management, and I’ll do so by sharing my personal experiences in the matter.
