IT Heartache

It's been tough in IT for, what, about the last 10 years? It's gotten even worse in the last two, as you've been asked to not only do more with less, but sometimes do more with nothing!

I want to bring your stories to life in a cover story for Redmond magazine. I want your war stories and advice. E-mail me directly at [email protected] and we may feature your experiences in this upcoming article!
