I've been a software engineer for about eight years now. My career has done really well despite my piss-poor memory. I'm thankful to Anki for that and wrote about my experience of dedicating a huge portion of my life to spaced repetition.

    Thanks for sharing this very interesting (and motivating) read. You should also post this in the unofficial user forum at https://www.reddit.com/r/Anki . Otherwise many people might miss it.
    Maybe also publish it at https://www.reddit.com/r/AnkiComputerScience/ . This subreddit is mostly dead but still if someone stumbles over this subreddit they will benefit from your article.
    I would also love to see some random notes/cards from your deck. I always learn when I see how other people use anki for technical topics in real life.

    ijg, thank you so much! Writing publicly is pretty awkward, since you're putting yourself out there and the Internet can be quite savage :) Your kind words meant a lot to me!
