bioDan4413173d@Root i would advise you to direct that anger to a productive direction like sports or music.
Tomorrow im starting a new job as a Bossman and as a well-experienced dev i know that 90% the biggest pitfalls can be avoided with good communications.
So other than daily and weekly standup meetings and code reviews, I plan to put a clear communications guideline/protocol regarding communicating with and between developers.
That way I can somehow strive to match the expectations of all parties involved with devs in the hope of constantly improving the communications in the company.
I wish you finish with this task faster than you expect. Also if you have any suggestions to a newly-self-made bossman I would love to hear them :)
Root40664172dI intentionally made myself angry this morning and had a shot of vodka prior to the call. It instilled a wonderful amount of righteous fury.
When he started blaming me for not following his instructions, not being enough of a Sherlock Holmes, I pointed out how it was the weekend, I got zero messages from anyone until it was too late, how the entire thing is a clusterfuck, and how testing in production is utterly despicable. (I conceded the Sherlock Holmes point because I relied on someone else to not fuck up, and I shouldn't do that.)
He was remarkably receptive and calmed down quickly. We finally got everything settled and scheduled a production test later today.
Sweet sweet victory.
(Still angry, however.)
