Over the years I learned to take my time finding a good opportunity instead of rushing into a partly-fitting job just because my skillset is matching the requirements, and as I spend most of my June looking for a new permanent position, I attended the usual bunch of meet-ups along the lines of JavaScript, Golang, JAM-Stack and network security. Pizza, Mate And Insecurities I usually went home having mixed feelings about the conversation culture on such events, and that isn’t because I don’t like talking about tech over pizza and mate, but because I felt that it was pretty hard to stay authentic and somehow me while engaging in the conversations.
