Thanks! Share it with your friends!


A few months ago I quit my job as a developer because I was burning out and felt that I was underpaid and overworked. This time I’m quitting my current job for a whole different reason. Watch the video to find out why!

So you now have time to tell us how you get the area under your eyes to look so clean. It's the only daily routine/coffee video I'd like to see.

I knew that guy was a great big phony!


I mean, the real endgame is happiness isn't it? Isn't that what we all work towards achieving and embracing? I just started a good job myself and know i'm not done growing as a tech guy. I too would love to travel more which i'm starting to do, and finally stop being afraid of myself and finally try content creation. Regardless, I love to see a good story end. You learned to code to get a good career and give your family everything you didn't have. Now you have an opportunity to create amazing memories and experiences for your family and especially your children. I can't wait to get to your point in my life. You've earned it and deserve it. Congrats and be safe. Happy travels!

Can anyone please give me tips on how to set an effective linkedin profile. I am still learning currently enrolled on CS50 and freeCodeCamp, recently finished a Java course on Codecademy.

Troy Gooden says:

At the end of the day, you can always go back to what you know

Experiment Lol says:

Serious question.. wouldn’t it be good to get a remote job that you can travel or No?

Tech Habits says:

Just wanted to say Thanks and many blessings on your new journey. I am a new to coding and CS in general and I am just starting out. In addition your channel is a great reminder that its not to late to change someone’s life. Thanks Dorian.

Fleming Tembo says:

So then what do you suggest is the best course for beginners so we don't end up empty?

paulo Tx says:

looks like, all programmers dream is to be a youtuber

Paul G. says:

The fuq? How do you get depressed about being a youtuber, after explainging what it does tor you?

Andrew Rico says:

we are talking about something that nobody had ever talk about yet i kept hearing the same story over and over again, and it's the "Developers delema" Why would I build that for someone else when can build it for myself. Althought this only apply to developers with entrepreneurial mindset.

Andrew Rico says:

I know what you mean, it sucks.

Explore Islam. It adds a prospective to life.

A. says:

I don't think changing your mind makes you a phony, it just makes you human. It's great that you want and are in the position to explore and pursuit other interests that align better with what you want for your life 🙂 And that you share all your process with us, that's sincerity <3 Thanks for opening up to us 😀

Zak ALi says:

Hey dude, good on you man! If you get a chance to exit the rat race, ofcourse you need to!!

Justin Singleton says:

That's the options you have when you can work online, a lot of folks eventually become digital nomads

Bishop Shaw III says:

Good for you. Enjoy your fruits of labor. Wish you best of luck on the new journey and direction. Always enjoyed your content and advice.

Blank Monet says:

Why not have it all on one channel? I know I can't speak for everyone, but I enjoy the mix of tech career videos and mildly personal stuff (like telling your life story and how you got here, the challenges you've overcome, etc) . Its all motivating. Wouldn't having it all on one channel bring in more money? (Im genuinely asking).

I guess it depends on how personal you wanna get, but Im probably gonna watch most of your videos either way.

tinyrunner tiny says:

was there since you had 200 subs btw 😉

Kevin Naughton Jr. says:
