Great ideas in here, Luca!

I can verify that chasing autonomy is worth it. Almost a decade ago, I ditched Java to focus on a single language and have less overhead as a full-stack engineer. It was the best bet of my life, and it paid off.

About being on call - I never did it. But I’m applying to an organization that has mandatory on-call. However, my understanding is that if you’re confident in the pieces you deploy, you might sleep well. What is your take on this? Is mandatory on-call a bad thing? What does it tell about an organization?
