Tom McHenry - Systemized Creativity (Part Two‪)‬ Day as a Dev

    • Technology

Show DescriptionThis episode features part two of my conversation with Tom McHenry.


If you're just joining the show: Tom McHenry didn't begin his career as a software engineer. In fact, after completing post graduate degrees in english literature, and fiction, and working as a journalist and web editor, it wasn't until a life changing event, that Tom entered a bootcamp to pursue a career in tech.


Outside of working as an engineer, Tom is an accomplished cartoonist, video game designer, marathon runner, weightlifter, husband, and now guest of the show.


In part one of this series, Tom and I walk through his entrance into tech, the benefits of unconventional approaches to learning, and systematic tactics for breaking down problems, and achieving abstract goals.


This episode picks up right where we left off. From strategies for tackling difficult problems, through game design, and cartooning, to thoughts on habits and routines. We fit it all in nicely, and have some fun along the way.
