He went up to the boss, dragged a big white board into his office.
Wrote company name, drew a big d**k pic on it.
Circled the d**k's head, wrote boss' name and drew an arrow pointing to the circle.
Titled the board reason for me leaving.
Last I heard, they filed a case against him. Not sure about the outcome of it.14
"Let's do some pair programming! It will be fun!"
... Fuck no.
Either I start coding and you open a beer, or the other way around. And sure, I do not mind doing each other's code reviews. I respect your feedback.
But I can't look over your shoulder while you misspell keywords. When I write code, I search, try, debug and play at a high speed.
I'm an impressionist/surrealist writing messy passionate functions, breaking lots of things with broad paintbrush strokes before finishing it into detailed perfection. I remember all the places in the code I need to work on, and cover everything with tests.
You're a baroque coder, sometimes even a hyperrealist, with your two-finger 10 wpm typing, writing code strictly line-by-line, decorating every statement with the right checks & typehints in advance. You can not keep two functions in your head at the same time. You write tests reluctantly, but you hate that I barely plan. You plan everything, including your pee breaks.
As a coworker I respect you.
But there is no bigger hell than pair programming with you.14
Why THE FUCK does the StackOverflow Community answer any JS related question with a solution containing jQuery - sometimes even without mentioning it?
Gosh - it's 2017 use Vanilla or at least a modern libary!10
!rant but recommendation:
I really like this book.
It's chewed away my misconceptions of JS. Especially coming from C++.
Small and precise.
JSON, JSLint and JSMin developer is the author.6
I hate React.js with a fucking passion. It sounds great on paper, but once your project gets any size. The mental recursive loops of passing data around is insane. Not to mention keeping consistency a cross metric shit ton of components. How do you manage it?29
