42 first principles
In 2022 I am turning 42 and therefore I am writing down my 42 first principles. This is most likely going to take the entire year, and I plan to publish rough drafts on a weekly basis in this blog.
I want to take the time to get them into a form that is more permanent, and more stringent than the list of GitHub issues, I've collected already.
The first principle #1 is not yet on that list, though. I have to start
with putting these principles into context. They are mine only and not intended
to be a list of shoulds, and therefore I must talk first about the
privilege I have to be working in the tech industry
since 1997, and being able to work in it uninterrupted now in the 25th year.
