One of the things about working in the field professionally I miss is teams.

I learned to code when I was really young, and often a friend of mine and I would work together on things, and learn stuff together, back bit twiddling on 8 and 16 bit machines in the mid 80s.

And it was fun, plus I could bounce ideas off him and vice versa, and I also had that a lot in the field when I worked with other coders.

Now I find myself stuck a lot of times on design decisions I just feel i need a second opinion for (all of the options are equally bad or all of the options are equally good but in different ways)

It's good to be part of a team. I'd say from where I sit, it's not something to take for granted.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
