A top food chain client wants a feature Fx
and has a deadline on Friday.
We are still working on it and already estimated hours and set deployment on Monday.
(No deployments on Friday)
And the business/sales guy comes up with new deadline to submit it at Friday morning.
And was only discussing with one of my team member already working on it. And i knew there is more hours required for testing and need to deployment pre deployment phase (staging of dev)
I was over hearing the conversation between them and I got pissed off and jumped in and said Not Possible at all.
He tries to argues about giving something to him. I said we can give it to you but will not garauntee anything. Now project manager jumps in. PM and my team already know that we will be delivering on Monday.
He arguing that if the Fx is not ready then I will call client developer to office to test it directly on my team members laptop.
I said, No way. We are not ready yet and havent finished yet. Major work will be on Thursday and on Friday we will be testing till end of the day.
PM explains him blah blah stuff.
He calms down and says no worries we will check the status on Friday afternoon amd roll out something to Client.
PM, developer and I looked each other and I said, sure will deploy but will not garauntee anything. He goes back to his desk.
WE ALREADY ESTIMATED F* MAN HOURS AND WILL BE READY ON MONDAY MEANS MONDAY DONT F* BUILD MORE PRESSURE ON US. F* SALES2
Never get distracted.
Actually I dont but the website makes the distraction.
Currently, I am working on task and has deadline by tomorrow.
Try to find solutions over portals like SO etc etc.
In SO, I am going through the question comments and answers; yoh see hot questions. I love those. They always attract me.
And devRant to post about it.
Now you can say, why my deadline still on my neck
I am currently on module has already the passed the sprint and current burnout chart is way far that my CTO will likely burn the chart and I my ass is burning as that module is required by other fellow developers.
Fucking Terraform examples and documentation.
I have been working on it for almost 2 weeks now finally made 80% progress and still 20% burn needed. Kind of deadlock.
I am not sure what to do. Just sit and watch my CTO burns over me. (Definately going to be remark in future engagement with HR)
I cant comment or do ++ -- when I am in China.
Only can read.
It always throws error after certain period of time.
I joined a company 6 months ago.
No development process.
Takes loads of new requirements on top.
I advised the software head and managing director on how to improve our software development process.
Less requirement good quality software
New products and micro services.
Both of them agreed but they said they are waiting for new CTO to confim as an authority and responsibility.
Well I cant do much just to do my work.
1 month ago new CTO joined
Revised whatever I advised and implementing it right. I like it.
Got my confirmation after 6 months instead of 3 months.
CTO called me in for review and gave me 2/5. And said you need to improve more.
I asked him, in what do I need to improve.
He replies in technologies and development process.
And he takes credit for all changes and implementation.
I argued about it. I already suggested what you did but was ignore because we didnt have CTO.
Hes like ignored me.
Fucking you CTO.3
Yesterday whole 12 hours we were working on deployment about a feature X that has deadline yesterday itself.
Everything damn perfectly running on Test env but not on Prod.
We made Prod into Dev/Test/Fucking garabage env. Haha.
I was laughing to myself at same time crying hard in my deep heart.
Business guys chasing PM
PM chasing us
And from morning till night we were in same room. Had lunch, and dinner only went out for toilet and to refil water bottles.
And found that feature Y is not working at same time that is related to our feature X. Fucking we have been wasted hours on it.
One of my devs got so fucked up emotionally that he messed up the code (not his fault) he didnt had his lunch and dinner. Had to console him later that its not his fault. Poor guy not sure whether he slept or not; will find out in few hours.
Anyways reported a bug.
But that bug assigned to us for fixing.
Are you fucking kidding me.
Anyways no choice. Had to do it.
Hope today everything goes good or horribly bad. FYI no deployments on Friday damn we are in stalememt till Monday.
Fuck that bug
May be fuck our stupiditiy while makiing mistakes.1
When I create a post here and modify it. What exactly happens?
Does the posts has revisions or not (overwrite)?8
So my software head wants everything on linux based servers and i totally agree with. We are trying gitlab and devops installed on Windows server.
I am fucking angry now.
Why the fuck Windows.
