Burn out and Recreational Coding with Jamis Buck

A decade ago Jamis Buck was not loving his job. He was an important open source contributor. He worked for the hottest trendiest software company at the time, 37 signals, creator of ruby on rails.

He was on top of the world but also he was burnt out.

Today Jamis talks about how he overcame burn out.

We discuss how his struggle lead him to write a book about generating mazes and another about building a ray tracer. His books are great fun, and all about recreational programming.  You will learn to build things with a focus not on the latest trends in software development and not even a specific programming language.

The focus, instead, is on fun.
