A Developer’s Vacation: What Didn’t Go Wrong

A few weeks ago I was able to do something that I hadn’t done since graduating college. I went on a vacation without my laptop and without my phone. I had my boss’s blessing and the support of my team. For an entire eight days, I was able to unplug. When I got back, things were just as I had left them. I didn’t have any fires to put out and no urgent business. Everything just worked the way it was supposed to. It wasn’t luck. It was designed that way.
