You never know what surprises you’re gonna have pop up. If you’re ok taking a gamble of a few grand ($5k ish) instead of paying for one, go for it. If you want to soften that blow then get one.

Don't know where else to post. This is my only tech bowl. I can access my PayPal only from my cell phone. Not from any other device. I can authenticate with mfa but can't access my account....

Hi there - new to the bowl. For those that have pretty large savings/investment account balances and net worths north of 300k or even 1MM under the age of 35, can I ask how it is you’re accumulating? I have a 90k salary, living in NYC. Trying to max out retirement accounts, net worth of approx. 150K+. There isn’t much room for extra savings after-taxes and expenses etc. Is my most important goal to seek a large pay increase? I don’t see how else I can accumulate as exponentially as others. TIA.

Hi Fishes,
Anyone from Wipro ? Could anyone help me understand the extent of implementation practice at Wipro.!!

When and how much of a raise should I ask for? Ive been working as a Software Engineer and Data Scientist for 7 months and I am making $70/hr. I got hired to work with python and I work with python, as well as C++, SQL, and NPSS. I have surpassed my boss's expectations time and time again and he constantly refers to me as the only source of good news in the engineering team. He just requested that my contract be extended until April 2024 and I would like for my value to increase.

They’re really good Facebook groups called Becker -REG, FAR etc. Sharing for anyone who wants another resource.
