Fuck. My new job in the public sector requires me to sign paper applications to access JIRA or git. It takes them 4 days to process, so now I am waiting at home doing nothing. I’ll still get paid a competitive developer salary, though.

If you are a EU citizen from a country that subsidizes Poland, you can be sure that your taxes are well spent on my couch :)

    Been there before, though I'm not from the EU.

    When I got the public sector gig, I had to submit a >10 pages long form, detailing my family and my whole education and employment life, including at least 2 referrals who are not family and who were not from my previous place of employment. Luckily I had great neighbours.

    They also wanted my examination transcript from 18 years ago. Because reasons.

    Why sign? To make sure you don't steel code? Or its blocked in the country and that's like a permission to access?

    So you mean that money that is taken from my salary, primarily destined for me for the time I spend reading your rant, are given to you for laying on the couch and writing the rant? Nice!

    At least they know git and jira. Not like ZUS (social insurance institution), where they still remember diskettes, used there not so long time ago ;)

    Go buy yourself a pint from my tax money :) I'd rather have it subsidize fellow developers than the fucking clowns in my government.

    Sometimes, I think it would be nice to join the public sector and help fix the mess that public IT is. Then again, rants like yours remind me that I might not want to do that.
