kdiggity852yThey must be recruiting for gov job. The gov loves to measure productivity by lines of code 🙄. You can also apply this productivity measure to "words on a page" which gov also seems to love. And it's a wonder why the codebase is 20,000 lines (when it could be 500) and why gov docs are hundreds of pages when they could be 5. I don't get it either.
MoCkYPR3532yI guess its what happens when you have people who have no idea about the job and no idea how to measure your skill. It really sucks
spacem19852yJust in the master branch or should we add all lines from all branches together?
mpower2812yMaybe it's just interesting for them. I remember myself asking this a few times when I was starting out.
Maybe they're measuring how efficiently you made it. You can come up with a rough estimate of a projects codebase. If a calculator has a 10M+ line codebase, they will not hire you lol.
The answer is 666
