SimpleProgrammer guy is quiting and handing over to his business
"It doesn't mean you're not going to see me around anymore. It doesn't mean I'm not going to make videos anymore. It just means I won't be running the company as a CEO anymore".
Holy shit, what is that crap? Is this the snakeoil for the bottom feeders?
>takes his shirt off
Not sure what that has to do with programming though.
These two videos explains it more.
His feed has always had personal advice stuff on weightloss, fashion, getting a girlfriend, etc.
BTW, youtube now has 8-25 minute long ads before seeing some videos. Unclear who is stupid enough to watch a 25 minute ad before a 3 minute video. Youtube is retarded and driving away customers.

IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH PROGRAMMING!LOOK AT THOSE MUSCLES
Ok, I took a glance. Why can't these Gen Y types and younger bother to fucking organize their thoughts? He needs an actual fucking blog post with headings, and break up the wall o text ramble. Video is destroying narrative.
The surface level impression I got from a quick glance is that he's as confused as any aspie tard subscriber of his about what to do with his life.
I basically got the impression he just doesn't like running SP anymore or doesn't have any more to say or something. Or whatever.
Agree, or what, RC?
I unsubscribed from his blog because the rat-a-tat-tat of bodybuilding and MGTOW and lifestyle shit was sort of incoherent.
I think it's pretty straightforward to very quickly run through everything about software development that creates personal growth challenges. Then you have to talk about other things.
I've probably posted over the years about most of what he's blogged or vlogged about. His output was better when he kept it tight. Branching out into personal improvement is generic, nothing to do with simple programmer, more like "simple aspie in any field."
"Agree or what RC?"
I'd say that if you are fit, dress well, and are confident you're going to have an easier time getting all the ... good jobs.
Well and it's true too.
He's not shy about what he used to look like. He was a disgusting fat aspie tard slob unemployed virgin. Completely the prototypical loser playing games in the basement!
He decided he was sick of that, learned a little bit of basic programming, lost weight, cleaned up his acne, became less pale, learned to dress, learned to act confident, moved out of his parents basement, and bam, suddenly he's got women, jobs and is a popular sought after guy.
Tech skills aren't too relevant. You need to know enough to do something and not nothing and you'll be a superstar if you dress the part, or an aspie loser if you don't dress the part.
> Tech skills aren't too relevant. You need to know enough to do something and not nothing and you'll be a superstar if
I don't think you actually believe that. I don't.
The idea that you'll be a superstar if you style things up is crap. At that point you're turning into a marketer and you stop caring about improving your craft.
I think SP did an excellent job of digging into the mind fuckery of programming careers and undoing the damage that the occupation does to your social and self actualization capabilities. But my point is he went so far beyond that, that his content became an unfocused mess.
I think he'd be staying with it if it were enjoyable which it would be if he had stayed more focused on one niche topic. He got too broad.
Last summer he had a holiday in Europe, he hasn't been the same since, he lost all his focus, maybe he got off with a hot Italian chick or something.
I think his European vacation is when I lost interest. It's absolutely uninteresting to me to watch someone have a good time that I'm not having. There's an entire social media industry built around voyeurism into other people's arguably better lives. He was rambling more than ever in that period and I switched off.
I didn't know he went to Europe. Did he wear speedo on European beaches?
He was very prolific on PluralSight and seems to have some good info products, like the course on learning fast.
I couldn't watch his YouTube videos. They were rambling and I found the focus on his physical fitness distracting.
>BTW, youtube now has 8-25 minute long ads before seeing some videos. Unclear who is stupid enough to watch a 25 minute ad before a 3 minute video. Youtube is retarded and driving away customers.
YouTube has a near-monopoly because, as I said before, YouTube is subsidized by Google's other revenue. Eventually, server/bandwidth costs will come down, and advertising revenue will increase, enough so that a competitor will be viable. There are some niche video sites like Twitch that are viable, but nothing general like YouTube.
