Ask me anything! All the answers

  1. Woah that was a lot of questions to answer. A lot of fun and thanks for sharing. I have no desire to own real estate either, so I appreciate the RV lifestyle you are living. For now I cross my fingers that the market continues to grow for a few years and then I can sell my home for a large profit and become debt free.

    1. Totally, Dads. Another couple of years of growth would be outstanding, wouldn’t it? I’m finished with my accumulation phase, so I’m relishing growth. 🙂

  2. Thanks Steve on being so candid. Loved reading this post. And thank you for answering my question and so many others. I loved how you framed the last resort of schlepping back to the office as a failure. I have a sneaky feeling you won’t get there. ANYTHING but back to corporate ‘Merica!

    Oh, you will love the Tetons – our favorite part of North America to ski. Mind blowing scenery and such kind people in that part of the country in our opinion.

    And fine, fine answer on the Patriots. Mr. PIE being a Pats fan of course…. :>)

    1. I’m a Pats fan too and I agree with what you said. I think Belichick is an evil genius who uses rules to his advantage where he really pushes the limit. Plus, if they cheated THAT much, they never would have lost to the same team in the Super Bowl twice. 🙂

  3. Fun post! As for programming languages, certainly Javascript and Java are very popular now. But embedded and native languages like C, C++, C# will continue to command lots of jobs especially with continued popularity of IoT like devices. I was well served going the C route, but lots of languages along the way too. The language is just one tool and I agree with getting exposure on projects … and at the current time I would concentrate 90%+ of my time on AI, machine learning types of applications especially as they apply to vision. If into iOS inclined, then Swift is a growing rapidly. But learn a couple, and you can pick up more quite easily. Harder to stay up to speed on all the frameworks/libraries since they change and emerge constantly.

    1. Yup, it is tough to stay up with trends sometimes. I think proactive learning is what separates the “Okay” ITers out there from the exceptional ones – or, at least determined ones.

  4. Your candidness in this, and every post, is both admirable and a little scary. I’m not sure I could do it. It was the enjoyable read of the day, Steve. Thanks for sharing your life with us.
