A developer's worth is only measurable in their absence. 😢

    That's a theory I want to test and make true at my current employer....

    This is certainly true when I look at the messed up situation we are in because our boss feels strongly about "Everybody is replaceable" and does not think that "Ig you pay peanuts, you get monkies". Long story short, all our senior developers and designer have moved on and I'm now working with juniors who cannot hold a candle to their predecessors.

    @DeWet are you in a tech shop, thought this only happens in IT like banks... Which is why I really want to get into one, I thought they would pay more fairly what I am worth...

    Made my previous employer feel the pain. They were using me like a chicken. Now they have hired me after my current work for 2 hours everyday with extra pay because other IT guys they hired can't get shit done.

    One of them even removed the /var/www folder removing 3 commercial websites.

    @allanx2000 No, I'm a developer.

    Believe me, this does not only happen in IT positions. Anybody with a shitty boss can have this happen to them.

    If you guys do agile at work, leave for an entire sprint and see how much your teams velocity drops 😂

    @mzgaljic we say we do Agile but with an the time spent fixing bugs and putting out fires it doesn't feel like it...

    @allanx2000 Maybe you guys could try pulling less in to the sprint and give yourself a larger buffer?

    @mzgaljic not my call and I guess it's hard when the business is always screaming... The other part I guess it is just nobody else seems to understands how crappy code and poor documentation comes back to bite you in the ass with a vengeance later on. The Brent problem is a big issue... But no one else knows who Brent is as they have not read the Phoenix Project... This book should be mandatory reading...

    It measures how your code is unreadable and incomprehensible for other people...

    @rkzo Never ! Two devs of the team are in holidays and we go on production next week... Just frustrated with what I find sometimes (no indentation, hardcoded database values...)
