Twitter threads to save Career Advice From My Own Experience 🧵

So once upon a time I worked in a shop where the ops folks were divided into two teams.

AppOps, which handled the care and feeding of the application the company ran, and SysOps, which handled maintaining the Linux servers. Today’s thread is about normalizing asking more experienced folks whether or not the thing you’re facing from your new / prospective employer is actually normal. It’s geared at new entrants to the workforce / tech.

And now, “Lies This Industry Told Me.”

Gather round… So an anonymous Twitter person DM’d me this morning with a scenario. “I work at a large cloud company that makes inscrutable naming decisions, and I have an offer elsewhere for 35% more. Should I take it?”

Oh good heavens yes. A thread…
