Farewell, General Assembly

After a lot of consideration, I have decided that my position at GA no longer fits where I want to be and therefore my last day will be October 4th.

I worked on the Platform team for the majority of my time and have learnt a heck of a lot due to being in the fortunate position of having some very smart team members.

My main highlights are:


Burnout is some part of your body and/or mind telling you you need to stop what you’re doing and find a healthier path.

I am suffering from severe burnout. One might expect me to go into causes at this point, but I don’t think it’s particularly professional to start shining your previous employer in a negative light, so I shan’t.

I’m lucky enough to be able to quit my job without needing another gig already lined up. For this reason I am making the most of it and taking some time out to do some travelling and some self learning. Where that will be is to be decided very shortly.

I have got a growing list of things I’d like to learn and know more about, all mostly programming related. I am going to check these off and work on some of my own projects.

Around the turn of the year I will be looking for a new position in software engineering. If you are interested, please reach out.
