The Stoic Developer

The ancient philosophy of Stoicism, in practice, promises a life of tranquility. Modern Stoicism has gained popularity, thanks to authors like Ryan Holiday, and is best described as a counterintuitive recipe for a peaceful life.

In light of the recent emphasis on mental and emotional health in the tech industry, I'd like to share the benefits of Stoic practices as a pattern for living that works. We'll explore the four Stoic virtues of prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance and relate them to our daily lives as tech workers in the modern age. Everyone (not just developers) will take home a few nuggets of wisdom for a peaceful, happy life at home and work.
