M1sf3t384318d@duckWit Occasionally I might bring something home if looks like its going to be a pita but for the most part I do everything wherever they happened to break down.
At least I did anyway, I'm shut down for the moment trying to get moved and re-situated across the county, losing half my customer base as a result so I said I was going to wait til I had finally got something up online that did more than just list my contact info.
Answering a phone while your under a car covered in oil gets a bit tiring after a while and I get to break in a whole new wave of customers soon as I start advertising again so I figure I'll try to start it back up the right way this go 'round.
duckWit574617dI'll add my own answers to this.
1) 7+ years
2) C# with a heavy micro-service architecture. Primarily SQL for data persistence. RabbitMQ for event messaging. AngularJS for the various (legacy) app UIs, transitioning to a much more modern React.
3) Yes, I'm very happy with it all but of course it's not without it's stressors. I'm glad though I left the regular job life.
4) I've thought about this question a lot, and I can say for certain that the answer tends to change for me from day to day, but the most consistent feeling I have is that it takes all of you. It will take far more of you than you realize. If the desire is for it to take off in a big way, there can be no holding back, even 7+ years in.
