I stopped my master degree 6 years ago, partly because it was not compatible with open-source development (doing both at the same time was not realistic, and guess what I liked most). And with a bachelor degree that is worth something on the job market, I was able to apply to job offers and start working, and that’s what I did. But I now regret it, I was not satisfied by my day job, and when I see job offers requiring a bachelor degree in Belgium, most of the time I’m not interested.
So, I’ve taken the hard decision to start again studies, to finish my master degree in computer science!1) It’s a bit strange to go again to courses, studying etc. But I’m re-adapting.
In my last blog post I said “back to GNOME development”, but this time around my studies are the priority. And to avoid stress/burnout, I try to no longer work the evenings and weekends, so it drastically limits my time that I’ll devote to GNOME.
