iamai24961yLearn to delegate. A PM's role and time should mostly mitigate issues and plan for contingencies to ensure the schedule is met if not adjusted accordingly. It may include mentoring and guiding those under your team but you shouldn't be doing most of the coding anymore.
C0D4681781yIf your doing both roles, set aside time specific to each role, hopefully your using a ticket board (Jira / trello, etc) to manage your workload.
I spend my mornings doing the project work, afternoons if I manage to get time I spend coding.
This way it's a constant switch with lunch as the breaker.
But each to their own, and you'll either find a routine or you won't.
@iamai if one has a team under them yes, but even then, as a dev/pm hybrid you are still expected to manage both your time and the time of those under you while still getting shit done.
There's no "nice" way of getting through this, but you'll really need to learn and master time management to pull you through it.
donuts244091y@iamai and this morning we have production issue. Not my problem but when I hear that... I just think root cause: shitty code
That's how they learn... Maybe
I going to guess that will pick duct tape fix again... And well doesn't help manager is sorta hands off and perhaps not too bright.
Though I wonder maybe why he hasn't asked me to review the code is because he knows it's rip it to shreds....
And well I ain't volunteering...
