In this episode of Ruby Rogues, the panel discusses where they are right now and what their day to day looks like. Dave is with Sage Software and continues to push himself so that he will always be learning and progressing. He has three kids currently and he tries to have a good work-life balance so that he can separate both of his worlds. David is currently at a Fintech company where he is on the core team and does the data science. He also writes a lot and explores his creativity through that. Charles finds himself working a lot on the podcasts and has to schedule time to code. He works from home and therefore gets to spend a good amount of time with his family.
