This is how I workI honestly have no idea why I’m writing this… Maybe years from now it would bring a good laugh; maybe it’s a mental backup in case my computer crashes; or maybe is simply out of boredom.
Hello, my name is Jesus Omar and this is how I work. A typical day for me begins at around 10:30 or 11:00 AM, when I usually wake up and jump into the shower. By 11:30 we usually have our first team meeting.
After a few hours of catching up with the team and getting the priorities for the day, I open up my sublime text editor, start my local zend server and start hacking away at some problem. This usually consists of searching DuckDuckGo for a piece of code that might help my situation and or reading the documentation of Symfony to bend it to my will.
After 2 or 3 hours of work I usually take a break to read Hacker News and The Verge, or watch one or two anime episodes on crunchyroll before digging into either a new problem or going back to the previews one.
This continues until I’m either to exhausted to continue, or I have to leave the house. If I don’t have anything plan then this means I’m usually hacking away until 2 or 3 in the morning.
Anyways as I said at the beginning I have no idea why I’m writing all of this…. maybe is to remind me in the future on how hard I once worked.
