I've followed this thread with some interest.  I work as cluster admin for a
university research department--It's decent work, good hrs and benefits.
But also, exhausting.  I have much more fun writing code than wrangling

Writing open source software is good as a hobby, but also as resume
material.  The jobs in audio software are very competitive, so having some
completed projects will help you a lot.

My current job and projects are (hopefully) a stepping stone to other more
interesting jobs in the future.
