Finding developer work in Alaska sucks. As far as I can see from growing up here, it’s very difficult to find anything other than a C# web form developer for something that eventually just supports the oil industry. What a contrast after spending time close to the SF bay area.
After years of telecommuting, living in your home office can get very, very old. You wake up at work, you work, and when you are done, you are still home. Most of all, you never get a chance to see real people, and your social life takes a hard dive.
The same old question pops up for me again…mountains and people that run and ski and hike, or a killer job. Damn it.
