Hello fellow devs, hope you rocking! I need your advice as junior dev here. How do you handle big projects ? I mean, without getting lost when coding and having a clear understanding of code's flow.4
So this embedded product is already a year late as cutting a task from the schedule didn't make the problems it would have addressed go away.
Now there's a performance issue (turns out to be how the customer had configured something) after we've been stumped for over a month and not got any closer, theres a meeting with the design authority, project manager, systems engineers etc, we say we can't tell where the issue is exactly, can't easily tell what Linux is doing all the time etc etc, so this product does a lot of IP processing, the project manager asks - do we even need an OS?
Are you having a laugh?! We barely took him serious before this meeting, we still don't now and it was three years ago! I mean, who wants to write their own OS and associated infrastructure themselves? 1 year late already, think you can add another 20 man years onto that!
What does a previous sprint hangover feel like?
When it's quite hard to start working on a new project after another project (new sprint)... "Ok, I'll start in 15 minutes"... "Ok, in another 30 minutes", so on and so forth!!! :-P
