I broke under pressure and decided to remove the previous blog post where I asked for feedback on code I had written for a tech interview.
Reasons are the following:
Many expressed concerns that I was sharing content that should not be shared (although the unnamed company gave me full permission)
Few bothered to read the documents with my comments and the original assignment which had a big impact on the end result (such as the time constraint and the given classes and interfaces)
Concerns were expressed that I might miss out on opportunities by sharing
And a few more things
I’m just not in a good place right now to be honest. I’m tired and frankly upset. I gave it all I had when I started programming, for 3 years I’ve coded 24/7, and done everything and sacrificed everything to become a programmer loving what I did more than any other job I’ve ever had, and a decent one (one day awesome). If what I do today is not good enough then it never will be. I cannot have an assembly line type of programmer job, I just can’t. I’m starting to think my dream job isn’t out there and it’s all in my head. And maybe my coding skills as well.
Thank you so much for the feedback those of you that took the time. It warms my heart, and I do read it and use the feedback.
I think I need a break. I’ve hit a wall and I don’t quite know how to break through it this time- it seems to be breaking me instead.
