3 days to sprint ending. A logic which was supposed to exist has not actually been implemented which halts my progress.
When I brought it up, was told to get that done too... Under my same story.. He goes on to say it is very simple.. I don't find it simple at all.. If this was properly planned, this would have been a 3-5 point story by itself..
Now with him calling it simple, feeling embarrassed to say its not simple to me... Caught in a dilemma and in my mind already making plans to burn weekend to get this done... I hate this..1
Barely working on c++ in recent years. Wanting to delete visual studio to free some space only to be asked to update my visual studio installer which ends up taking more space.
It is just temporary considering I plan on deleting that installer too but this is just plain stupid to be asked to install something so you could uninstall...1
A newly joined developer (who was supposed to be very senior) comes and asks me how to write a test cos for some reason the person didn't know how to mock.
(same for any other implementation which has an interface)
Writes Arraylist list =.....
Instead of List list = Arraylist...
Deployed code (another engineer from another country helped to deploy since this new senior dev didn't have access yet.
But the new senior dev didn't update relevant files in production code which brought down the site for nearly an hour. Mistake aside, the first reaction from this new senior dev is 'WHY DIDN'T THE DEV THAT WAS HELPING DIDN'T DO THE FILE UPDATE?'
This was followed by some other complaints such as our branching stragies are wrong. When in fact the new senior dev made a mistake by just making assumptions on our git branching strategies and we already advised on correct process.
Out of all these, guess this is the best part. The senior dev never tested code locally! Just wrote code, unit test and send to QA and somehow the test passed through. I learnt this when I realised this dev... has not even set up the local environment yet.
I keep saying new but this Senior dev been around like 3 months! This person is in another team within our larger team but shares same code base. I am puzzled how do you not set up your environment for 3 months. Don't you ask for help if you are stuck? I am pretty sure the env is still not setup.
Am I over reacting or is this one disgusting developer who doesn't even qualify for an intern let alone a senior dev? It's so revolting I can't even bring myself to offer help.9
New product owner colleague has a question like every hour, walks right over without considering that I am coding or if my headset is on for obviou reasons.
The questions are not even programming related and more to do with him updating story acceptance criterias for like the next freaking 5 sprints. These are stuff that could take hours to explain what the planned features are to begin with let alone discussing individual stories. I've actually taken my time and spent hrs explaining this shit to him now. Won't take any notes, jus shakes his head and says he understands and comes back asking same question again and again. Best part, he never gets to the point. Instead of asking 'hey for xyz feature do we need that component' he goes on to tell me he talked to this person and that person and he found this out and that out bla bla(like I give a fk..) and then somewhat formulates the question which I swear takes like 10 mins.
Lost count on hw many times he has interrupted me now when I am deep into some debug cos he needed to tell me about how his day went for some reason.
It's one thing to train a new developer but a product owner.. For fk sake. Trying to not be offensive but damn he is pushing it.10
All those stackoverflow mod cunts should be attached to a shocking device which electrocutes them each time they close or mark a question as a duplicate.
That would teach them to read and understand a question instead of skimming a couple of lines and making retarded assumptions. Fucktards.1
Some context about me. Close to 3 years experience as a java developer. 1st class honours in Computer science plus oracle java 8 professional certified.
Today while discussing to a senior developer about a technical solution, he asked me a question.
Are you familiar with 'extends'?
He was talking about the keyword. I am so disturbed by it. Here I was thinking I was doing a great job. And he felt the need to verify if I knew inheritance keyword..
God knows what he and his fellow senior colleagues talk about me.. I must be looking like an absolute idiot in their eyes all this time..
