svgPhoenix1030259dAh, the classic -
"Ok what's the problem"
"Oh it doesn't seem to happen any more"
"Yw for looking at it c:"
cantthinkofone1088259d@svgPhoenix that actually happens a lot to me too, this is kind of like that just with more (unnecessary) work.
The results are the same when I did it vs when co-worker did it, it's just he looks at it, says it's wrong, re-writes the code, and comes to the same conclusion as me. I don't get it
electrineer10369259dMaybe he's new to it, too
iHatePython76259dThat sucks. I remember one senior dev I was stuck with when I was a junior. I’d ask him a question about this big company-wide system I know jack about, and he’d just keep whining “look at the coooooode”. Which of the thousands of lines would you like me to look at? I should have asked him that.
Maybe you should print the before and after code and ask this guy to circle the differences.
Companies I’ve worked for love to crow about seniors mentoring juniors, but I haven’t really seen it actually happen. I always want to, though.
wiwe2210521259dJust be glad that they put in effort to create a quality codebase. It's way worse when people want fast code over maintainable code. because as the project grows it will become a pain in the ass.
wiwe2210521259dOh and take the fact that someone with more experience comes to the same conclusion/solution in the end as a compliment.
zemaitis2045256dSounds like a case of inflated ego to me
