    Love how a person commented:
    This is satire, right?

    Exactly what I was thinking too.

    There is one recurring theme in that thread: A "10x engineer" is productive when few folks are around/no meetings take place/when he's undisturbed.

    In essence: Don't distract people. Give them the time and quiet to concentrate. THAT's the secret right there. And it applies to everyone. The "10x dev" probably doesn't exist, but "productivity reduced to 1/10" certainly does.

    What's a bloody 10x engineer?! Is this the new bollocks phrase after everyone finally realised "rockstar coder" sounded moronic?!

    @AlmondSauce @badcopnodonuts the term "10x developer" is several years old now, which rocks have you been living under? 😉

    It's supposed to be a dev ten times as productive as a regular dev. I don't know who keeps coming up with these terms. Rockstar developer, ninja developer, dev unicorn...

    And of course management keeps falling for it. An eternal gold rush for the one dev to replace them all... Because you'd get to keep nine out of ten salaries for yourself.

    @VaderNT hipsters ofc. And those who want skills of ten, salary of one in their companies, so they have to make that sad fact more appealing.

    @VaderNT I live under rocks that generally don't involve me using social media ☺️

    @interceptor I got a load of that, but it was the kind of load that gives you aids

    But I guess those 10x engineers are not being paid 10x

    @cafecortado of course not. What's in demand is super smart 10x engineers who are dumb enough to be talked into believing they are 1x engineers.

    I'm more of a magical unicorn dev.
