Instead of doing work let's all just have a meeting then email about the work just so the managers can look like they're doing something. Loving the micro management.
Co-worker emails 12:02 to say a client is having difficulties viewing a website.
Co-worker emails again to "confirm" on the previous email at 12:08.
I'm going to need longer than 6 minutes to read the email, check the thing and write a reply thanks!
Can't wait to get out of here.
Wasting my time when I was 18-22 not building something great while I had little to no responsibility1
So today I found out that one of my bosses (who does not program) thinks that he is better at system architecture than myself and 2 other colleagues combined and that we are "too inexperienced".
Not sure how he works that one out tbh. I have nearly 10 years experience, I build plenty of systems outside of work and I have a university degree in software engineering.
Sometimes bosses really know how to motivate you. This joins a long list of frustrations with my current workplace - and am almost at the end of my tether.1
Send spec to client. Client signs spec. Work proceeds. But they didn't tell us all the requirements. After client has internal struggles between their own staff.. they send us the extra requirements that could affect how things have been developed.
It's like people don't think things through... /Sigh.2
If by some cruel act you're forced into working on a live environment, just make sure you're absolutely sure that your test code is definitely the code that's going to run... Not some horrible script that rolls back the clients database a year ;)
Just booted laravel app, hooked up socialite with Instagram. Come to query the Instagram API and find out I can't do jack shit in sandbox mode.
App abandoned. Shame.3
