Last week I left GitHub. I stepped away from job security, exceptional colleagues, and the thrill of working for an admired brand within the developer community.
Two months ago I wrote about how I left my job to start a new journey as an entrepreneur. The first step as part of that process was that I wanted to sharpen my technical skills and fill in some missing pieces of knowledge. To achieve that aim, I’ve been attending a code bootcamp for the last nine weeks - which came to an end on Friday.
I learned a couple things last week. After my first week of openly talking about my journey to become a solo founder, I had hundreds of people follow me on Twitter and over 100 000 views of my tweets in two days.
