The stress of being a programmer
I recently came across an article titled The Stress Of Being A Computer Programmer Is Literally Driving Many Of Them Crazy via the IGDA Melbourne Facebook group. It's quite an interesting read.
Personally, I don't feel that I suffer from the imposter syndrome. I hope I never do, it sounds awful... I have been told by several people that what I have accomplished in the last two years with 4PiLabs is astounding. I don't feel that way about it though. Over the last year I have been the lead programmer on a new social networking app, Moodswing, which has a user base of around 100K members. Have built two mobile games within the last month and have developed some of the best school and sport clubs apps around. But I still feel I can do much, much better.
As for doing a 40 hour week, I would like to try that, but as it stands there is too much work needing to be done to even think about dropping below 60 hours...
