“If you want to stand out, don’t be different; be outstanding”Meredith West
Origin Story 🦸
Buried under a seemingly insurmountable pile of work, a lonely developer toils away, pencil-pushing and longing for meaning. The developer glances out the window and lets out a sigh. Fed up with the monotony of the daily grind, the developer takes a deep breath and lets out an enormous roar!
AHHHHH! (📷 Giphy)
Today the world moves faster than ever, yet, people report that many tech jobs don’t require any real effort, provide a sense of fulfillment, or give them anything productive to do. To be honest, getting paid to do nothing sounds mind-numbingly boring.
At the other end of the spectrum, there are hero developers, wearing numerous hats, juggling too many responsibilities, and struggling with burnout. How else is a bootstrapped startup supposed to compete in a David vs. Goliath match against modern-day titans of industry?
Working Dev’s Hero has entered the chat.

My name is Bobby Galli. I’m super grateful to have worked for companies where I could be highly effective, learn to do more work with less, and build enterprise systems from tip to toe. I created Working Dev’s Hero to share what I’ve learned over the past 10 years of software development and connect with like-minded individuals who love building software.
