I don't know how much experience you have as a professional developer but I can barely remember the problems I solved last week let only any interesting ones I've solved in the past 10 years.



I have maybe half a dozen really interesting stories, and maybe a dozen or two interesting but only to the right crowd stories - from a career spanning a bit over 24 years. And a bunch of war stories about why we shouldn't do things that way, because of the problems we discovered trying that in 1998 or 2003... (And occasionally the "we should try that again because it didn't work back when our colocated production servers had 486's and 320Mb disks - but it'll probably work just fine as a mobile app now"...)
