Making an Android app for a group project. Of course, no one besides me in the team knows anything about Java, or Android, or life, apparently.
A guy "worked" on some small feature for 90 minutes last night before calling me for help. He can't comprehend git so he sends me a message containing his spaghetti code. I proceed to bang it out quickly the right way with him on a Skype call watching my screen but he isn't asking any questions or contributing at all. We have an approaching deadline so I am beyond coaching this guy.
We go to test it out and I had forgotten a line. Simple fix, but it prevents the feature from working as intended. Rather than being remotely helpful the guy gets an attitude about how I write buggy code and that the feature should be robust. I fix it and he slinks back to silence.
Cool. Thanks for the help bro. Glad you could contribute.4
If you have been a software developer for more than 10 years and still like your job you are either not really a software engineer or have mental health issues.10
When you test/debug every piece of code you made/changed and then find out the rest wasn't working as it should.. FML
Test everything, trust noone!!!!!!
