On a sidenote, apparently everyone leaving FAANG becomes an investor. In comparison, ten years in a similarly-sized company in europe might buy you a slightly-larger-than-average house.

Lol. That's wishful thinking. You'd be lucky to get a 2 bed apartment in a not-terrible area with pretty bad sound proofing for that.

Unless you move out the areas where the tech companies are at(which is generally in dense cities).


I don’t live with regret but sometimes I do wonder why I spent so much of my career not chasing those sweet stock options or doing the (relatively small) studying to get into a FAANG

It feels like a cheat code to retirement.

Anyways, no regrets ;)


Very interesting.

I prefer flutter to react any day of the week, but react literally change the game for front end programming. Angular was hard to use, and while I've never been a great react programmer it's relatively easy to get started with


OT, but that's a pretty cool desk arrangement

I had no idea thinkpad keyboards exist. Hmmh interesting.

I bought one of these a couple of years ago after becoming hooked on using 'the nipple' on my ThinkPad x220. Perfect when using an external monitor. I also bought a ThinkPad E495 last year. The newer nipples are not as nice as the one on the x220. I'm not sure if it's a driver problem or a hw problem, but I'm tempted to go back to my x220.

Checkout TEX Yoda, the mechanical variant.

I assumed it was a custom mod extracted from an actual laptop

I used to think the same thing! Turns out you can buy them directly: https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories-and-monitors/keyboa...

Nifty. Looks like a ThinkPad laptop keyboard adapted to USB instead of whatever internals the laptops use.

Sadly, I'd never use it (very attached to ergo keyboards these days). But nifty, if only for the nostalgia value.


Very cool. I especially like that it still has the mouse built-in. I hate moving my hand to a separate mouse while programming.
