My trip to Los Angeles

A couple of weeks ago I traveled to Los Angeles for my first summit with Zed Industries. I haven’t done that for some time now. I used to do that a lot when I worked at GitHub. The route was pretty much standard. Thessaloniki to Frankfurt or Munich, and then a 10 or 12 hour flight to San Francisco. This time it was from Thessaloniki to Munich to Los Angeles.

My first four weeks at Zed Industries

I am not going to lie. Starting over again with a new programming language, after 12 years of not coding full time is not easy. I have been spending most of my time, learning, and staring at code not knowing what it does. I feel my brain works at 1/4 of the speed of more experienced colleagues. Zed Industries is all about pairing. And I’ve now paired with 5 different people. I often get this feeling that I am slowing everyone down.
