I’m addicted to writing programs, designing them to scale, conduct load tests scenarios, monitoring disk, cpu, and memory during these tests, but I don’t go to production.


  • Yeah man, I feel the same. I just need to break this fear. Ship a thing. Anything. Anonymously. And share it somewhere.

  • OP: call me? I’ma make you ship! State your preferred industry and pair up with a hustler interested in getting product live and selling it.

    • You’re making the assumption that whatever he’s working on is a good idea. He might be the world’s best engineer but if he’s working on a crappy idea, nothing will come of it.

      Google, Facebook, Apple, etc. have thousands of great engineers but they need direction; they don’t have the creativity to come up with great ideas on their own.

      You need to pair a creative type like Steve Jobs with a great engineer like Steve Wozniak in order to build a great company; finding a creative type who is also a great engineer is very rare but possible.

  • Agreed with 11:40am. Grab one of us hustler-types and let us rip the fucking doors off (assuming your product is great). We’re often horrible at what you’re great at. ie. you’d never get me to even sit through an explanation of a unit test, let alone debug and optimize software.

    Don’t fight your weaknesses, play to your strengths, mate.

  • Moderator: Great feature request noticed in this thread:

    Allow two anonymous members to request/grant contact info. Big value add – maybe monetize-able.

    • Dana here: Great thought. It’s something we’ve been trying to figure out. Probably going to be along with allowing commenters to contact author. Author will see commenter, but not vice versa until author chooses to respond to message.

      • That, or have a Craigslist-style classified section. Would be kind of weird to have a “reply to author” on some of these confessions.
