About this blog
My name is Blaine Osepchuk and I’ve spent nearly 20 years working as a small business programmer.
While I’ve been pretty successful, I’ve had my share of missteps, mistakes, and hard times. And I know I’m not alone; I’ve watched friends and colleagues struggle as programmers in small businesses too.
Some quick web searches show two things:
- lots of programmers struggle to be happy and successful in small businesses
- there are virtually no resources specifically tailored to small businesses programmers
I think this is something that has to change.
So here’s the plan:
I’m going to share my experiences accumulated over the last two decades as a small business programmer as well as some advice for how my fellow programmers might become more successful. I’m going to write a “Missing Manual” for how to be a wildly successful small business programmer.
