004. Talk with stardeviner about Emacs and his unique life experience

Time:2021-7-28

Another senior Emacs user has been invited to this programstardivinerAt the same time, he is also a Taobao shopkeeper to sell his IT skills.

From users to contributors of Org mode, how does he do it? What makes people more curious is his unique life experience. After graduating from University, he worked as a real estate sales, Pizza Hut waiter, preschool education teacher and it support. Finally, he inadvertently found that he could make money by selling his IT skills. From then on, he bid farewell to the workplace and embarked on the road of Freelander.

In his choices again and again, he gradually moved away from the road traveled by “ordinary people”, which may be a moment of recklessness, but more importantly, he had the courage to break through the constraints of tradition and gradually formed his unique work style. The content of nearly one and a half hours is full of “wet goods”, which can’t be missed!
