Developer's Proust Questionnaire
After finishing reading the Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust, I desperately craved to connect it with my job. It took me a while to realize that the best way to do that is to complete a developer's Proust questionnaire.
The questionnaire has one goal: capture time. We have long term thoughts that we consider defining our identity. But our relationship with those thoughts change through our lifetime. Proust wrote in Search of Lost Time to capture and make us wonder what we've been doing all these years. I suggest you try reading this wonderful book, although i admit it is particularly hard to read.
What do you have to do ? Simply answer the questionnaire. You'll look back to it In maybe 5, 10 or 15 years from now and i guarantee you that your older self will be very surprised how your younger self is (not) that stupid.
