Search - "boyfriend = best coding buddy"
If it wasn't for coding I wouldn't have met my boyfriend. 😊
We started working at the same place and position with 2 weeks apart, and quite quickly we turned into best coding buddies which eventually turned into more!
2,5 yrs later we no longer work together in the same company, but we do live together and code together on side projects at home ☺️9
My boyfriend, actually. But I value the human aspect more than the tech genius in fairness. He may be no Linus Torvalds but I don't care and wouldn't change him.
He's very kind to less experienced developers and always happy to help them. He teaches them not only how to solve things but how to get un-stuck the next time and what to learn.
His code reviews are inside out, not just a quick scan, he gives a chance to learn and takes one for himself too.
He takes pride in delivering great quality, well thought over code, on time.
He owns his mistakes and isn't afraid to admit when he makes them.
He reads a ton of tech books and always learns something new yet stays humble while discussing things he knows a lot about.
He has a ton of hobbies other than coding which he's good at.
Ah there, yeah whatever I'm a big softie today 😋 he's not on DevRant btw. Also sometimes I want to punch him too, but mainly he's a good guy :)5
