This developer at my company loves to criticise me - to make him self appear superior. Sometimes he’s ok, but a lot of the time he does what I can only describe as “scoffing”.
He didn’t understand what a parameterized query was, I explained it to him, and then he told me”I’m tying myself in knots” When I ask him how he would have done it better, no answer.
You don’t like how something is done and want it changed but offer no solution or when you do, you expect me to do the work.
It’s really draining me, having to deal with this every day.4
I added thousands or record to our test sql database and our web based product couldn’t handle it due to lazy loading all the records at once, but of course it’s my fault because I ‘overloaded the database’.......8
I want a future where all of these are ancient technology, we need to re think all of this stuff.
I’ve got a few ideas but it’s a long road.12
Someone’s argument against using a reverse proxy in front of our services, after I gave them some valid reasons to use one: “it adds an extra layer of complexity” and “that’s like going back to the 90’s” and “who’s going to support that”.
Drives me insane, fair enough if you’ve got a valid technical reason not to do it then fine, but come on.5
Does anyone else experience this?
One of my co-workers regularly breaks his Dev. Environment [on purpose]. I know it’s on purpose because he’s been seen by others doing it and caught out several times.
He then plays dumb and pretends he doesn’t know why it’s broken, so he can sit there reading the web/personal emails and eating, doing no work.
This really pisses me off.9
