How long did it take to stop missing coding?

Recorded – watch the full episode on YouTube.

How long did it take you to feel okay leaving the coding behind?

Jordanna Kwok: I had to go on a vacation, just to even get my mind away from it. It took me probably a few months overall to really come to the conclusion that I feel okay with completely leaving it behind. So it wasn't like an overnight decision, I had to sit on it, I had to go on vacation, to really let it simmer. So, I don't blame anyone who is just taking their time to really figure this out, please do take your time to do it because it is a career move.

At the end of the day, though, it doesn't mean that you can't go back. If you find that management really isn't for you, then it's yet another choice you have to make to go back into hands-on coding and engineering.

Paul Hudson: And I think you've been at Netflix now for over seven years, which is for a normal company about right, but for a Bay Area company, that's a long time!
