Homeless Sydney dev “will code for latte”
blog I don’t know whether to feel slightly dubious about her story or merely sorry for Adelle Hartley, a Sydney C#/SQL developer who says she is homeless and has featured in an extensive article published by ninemsn this week. The website writes (we recommend you click here for the full article; with picture):
“Ms Hartley had been working in Sydney for 10 years after studying mathematics and computer science in Tasmania, but her last contract ended about six months ago. Today she has joined the ranks of Sydney’s homeless, sporting a sandwich board that says: ‘Will code 4 latte.’”
I guess the thing I don’t understand with regards to Hartley is why, if she’s having trouble finding a job as an IT worker, doesn’t she get involved with one of the many Sydney IT startup programs, which are always looking for cheap new developers and definitely have some cash to fund places to sleep, or find work in other fields? I myself paid my way through university with a stack of random part-time jobs and Centrelink, including collecting money on the street for various charities. I could always afford a roof over my head, but as with quite a few of my friends, there were often weeks where my main diet consisted of two minute noodles. You have to start somewhere.
Alternatively, perhaps one of the many IT employers out there who read Delimiter could give Hartley a leg up. If she truly has been working in Australia’s IT industry for the past ten years, no doubt she has a stack of useful skills which would make her more than employable. She certainly has initiative.
