nam178876322yMate, dont do that to your clients, this is the mistake I had, I know they are idiots, but they pay the money.
Tons of other crappy devs willing to sweet talk your clients to pay them instead.
ardinent1172y@nam17887 wait what?! The client shouldn’t even have IM contact. If there’s no other way, allow IM and revoke when “progress requests” come through.
I can imagine ( and I did the same ) that you want to seem “readily available” while still building client base, but it should only be temporary and avoided as soon as possible.
It only means it’s the wrong client that doesn’t appreciate professionalism. Any client that expects you to work in such a way that the client-self wouldn’t appreciate ( being bothered at night ), isn’t an ideal client at all.
Do what you need to do to get business, but aspire and work towards a cleaner/better client environment every day.
kronos392yI had a similar experience. My manager likes to call rather than check the commit log or pull requests. I believe he thinks it's the quickest way to find out information. If I avoided his calls, he would ping me on company's IM or even Whatsapp.
