Join us, from the comfort of your home, on Zoom. Should you join a tiny startup, should you follow your passion and try to create a great indie game, or take a steady job and write business logic? These are the questions that every developer struggles to answer. This Power Hour includes tales from the trenches of every kind of company: big firms with lots of politics, video game firms with unrealistic deadlines, and dotcom startups both successful and doomed. There's no right answer, so please join us and enter into the discussion about what is it that makes a satisfying career. About the presenter: Over a thirty-year career, Ted Spence has led development teams across a wide variety of startups, established businesses, and video game companies. During the freewheeling days of Web 1.0, he built renowned websites for world-famous companies, most of which are long forgotten; but during the recent dotcom renaissance, he's led engineering for EEDAR (acquired by NPD) and built Avalara's world-leading automated returns filing software. He lives in West Seattle with his wife and daughter, and you can see him biking to Alki beach whenever the clouds break. Ted has a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy from CSU Fullerton and has actually read Hegel, to his great dismay.
