    they'll be riding a flying pig and have a single silver horn emerging from the center of their forehead, programming from latest wabbamac running arch/vim-studio (dark theme of course 😎) and proficient with every language 10 years longer than it was available to any mere earthly 1x engineer.

    They'll also have completed my latest u-diculous course, available now for only $10.95.

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

    Exactly what I was thinking too.

    @rajj Tis what we do here at devRant, we repost comical "no-nonsense" threads from twitter and we make our own versions.

    You guys should read the comments on the twitter thread, they're f'ng hilarious.

    He even shows up a few into it and tries to defend his position...

    "You haven't come across these folks. They are the folks you would bow your head, purely for their skills and you would ignore all the shortcomings about them."

    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?!

    What the fuck is a 10x engineer? Can I become one and where do I find that udemy discount code?!

    @AlmondSauce that's the first I heard of it, but then I don't really twitter. I got the impression that it was just him that realized it, or maybe that it was just played out so he thought he would beat everyone to the next moronic sounding bollocks phrase.

    Judging from the way the initial test flight appears to be going, it will hopefully have an extremely short lifespan πŸ˜…

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

    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 ☺️

    Is devRant just one of those things that everybody just ignores when someone says social media?

    Kinda like when people say compile and they really mean transpile and everyone just assumes what they meant?

    Well except for that one asshole that got abused on S.O. one to many times, but other than that guy?

    @Commodore I somehow ended up with the voice of Jeremy Clarckson...

    @AlmondSauce do rockstar coders snort blow off their keyboards?

    I'm more of a ninja developer.

    @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
  • 4
    @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.
