Oh I have a good one.

A dev once was added to the team -he deleted all of the whitespace from the backend code (minified) and called that optimising. We had a lot of back and forth and me reverting the things back to non minified and him back to minified on live environement. I shit you not i had to endure that shit and he kept on insisting that I'm the shitty developer because I don't know how to optimise. I'm starting to rage even thinking about it....

    @iiii small company, no reviews. The company I work for now does not do any reviews either. My own code is shitty a lot of the time, but I'm trying to improve and review my own an colleagues code. Never worked for a company with code reviews.

    @araratas This is insanity, i m also working with php and I can t seem to understand why there are so many bad php developers. They are so bad bad it makes my blood boiling. The company i m working for had a frontend in vue and a backend in laravel. The problem is that the vue js frontend had another backend in laravel where routes were written !!!!! So our app had 2 backends and 1 frontend. It took me 30 mins to convince the CTO to drop the frontends backend(that s how they called it ).

    Benchmark both.

    Print out the results on the back of a pink slip.

    Hire someone competent to replace him.

    Profit.

    @Root it was the CTO who implement it( this is a small company with 4-5 devs). His argument was that they used this for every project and I was like WHAAAAATTT. That s not even an argument, it still makes it a bad design. Because the app was in it s early stages it was pretty easy to move the frontend into an SPA. It took me only 2 days.
