We've invented DEVshirt's exclusive joke: parent programmer compiling a child 😛
Since world population is declining we should all celebrate becoming a parent, not to mention that parenting is one of the greatest joys in life. We as developers, should help the humanity grow, and civilization thrive, after all we don't want to go extinct. So... get to work 😉
With this t-shirt we've wanted to portrait the parent's nurturing the child, passing down parent's love for tech. We also made a joke how we sometimes need to nurture the compiler in order to remove errors.
As always, we hope that you'll enjoy our tees 🚀
Parenting in tech
Sometimes parenting can be hard, as a developer and a parent you often find yourself juggling your responsibilities. It can be especially difficult in dynamic tech industries environments. But still, try to limit your work time, being a parent should be a higher priority than being a good employee. And don't worry, you'll soon find out that outworking yourself doesn't bring in any benefits. People are often more productive when faced with limited time in work, there is even research to prove it. By limiting your work time, you often find creative solutions to complicated developers problems. You simply become a better at your job. At the end of the day remember 80/20 rule saying you actually do 80% of work in only 20% of time.
Work life balance is important
Many Tech companies provide special benefits to parents. Netflix for example provides 12-months of paid parental leave. If your company doesn't support you, consider applying to some of the work-life balance friendlier companies.
