hasu2516211dSomething I also had to learn the hard way. Had an argument with a collegue becuase even though I was the young dev, I've done this exact thing in a project a few months ago and knew the way to do it. I apologized to him after a few days because it was bugging me that we had raised our voices slightly. He was like: wut? we good.
Yeah that's when I learned that. x)
About the woman part though: I did encounter guys which dismissed what I said completly, just to be told the exact same thing by another person who was higher ranked, and then they listened to the guy. Not sure if this was a "woman" thing or not, will never know, and I also don't want to know tbh, but unfortunately, that shit still happenes. Sad rly. We ended up always telling one guy to tell the other guy to do smth since we just didn't want to bother anymore... ^^'
BrainDrain1673205dI may not be my code, but my code is my mind.
And that’s why criticism must always be delicate.
hasu2516202d@junon it is often subtile. I'm glad that I haven't encountered it that often so far.
Once I've got feedback which was so useless about our code that I was seriously wondering if this person really thought my work was bad but couldn't express it properly as to why, or if the person was sexist and was just trying to find reasons to hate on the work.
Like, making comments about my english, suggesting I should let a native speaker proof read (which I did), while making so many grammatical and spelling errors themselves. Or pointing out that I haven't explained something, which I totally did, if you would just read through it. This kinda stuff. I was reading this review like "mate, you are grasping at straws here for absolutely no reason. I can see that and I'm new. Come on now"
BrainDrain1673201d@junon I don’t expect devs to have a sense of poetry; but until you understand how personal a person’s work can be to them, you’ll never be promoted beyond “lead developer”.
