I'm lucky enough to be able to work with an extremely competent yet down-to-earth and generous senior engineer that it's a pita to write his review abt "area in which he can improve" - the dude already wrote 1/2 the codebase to keep the team running.1
It is snowing hard here in the mid-West of the States, just wish that we had 4-day work week system since 2 days is not enough in this weather. Wonder how European devs (esp in Germany) enjoy their extra 8hrs?9
any advice for how to write an effective annual self-evaluation?
I feel like I'm always doing my best to contribute to the team and handles all task assigned smoothly but looking at the daily notes of what I've done since last year they all seem so trivial ==''1
had all four wisdom teeth pulled out last Saturday and been under pain killer otherwise I could neither chew shit nor sleep - feeling drowsy af but still have to server debug with another internal team - fml1
I'm hungry and suddenly I have an urge to waste money on some stupid shit like a new ipad or 4k monitor but then I remember that the new paycheck will bitch slap me in the face if I do that, so back to hungry. =.=
dev: damn, the tests failed again
bossman: let's blame it on the neutrinos hitting the mainframe which flips a digit and causing the tests to fail this time!
dev: ok ...!4
I'm pleased to announce that, I too, have the 'unfortunate' to join the higher tax bracket payment where I will involuntary pay a portion of my income to the 'FICA people' for no returning benefits whatsoever.5
just figured out why my change blew up all the tests and fixed it - now I can go back to blog-reading and pretending to be a diligent dev... Can't wait to go on Vacation tomorrow!
Senior E: "Man, every time I do code review I thought this is the stupidest code ever written - then I look at the author, oh wait it's me"
Me: "Well, the perfect code is the code never gets written"
SE: "Casting appreciative look with a nod"
Looking blankly at the code review that I'm supposed to do whilst listening to HP & The Deathly Hallows for the last hour. It's a long Friday here fellas!1
