The team had just created an analytics dashboard web application for a client. During the demo, client asks: "Can we have a download button that saves all the graphs in a powerpoint, 1 graph per slide with a title?"6
It's frustrating when you tell your teammate after code review that they have to rework their code a bit to capture certain scenarios they've missed and they just scowl at you.
I'm just trying to make it easier for us in the long run!
Our team was having a problem with very slow response times from a 3rd party web service they were contacting to get some device stats. No issues on the other end, but it had already been weeks. They ask me to take a look at it.
I take a few days, do a couple of benchmarks and tests and I isolate the section of code responsible. Turns out, the method they were calling would timeout if the device was offline. We ask the vendor, and they confirm this. They tell us to call methodX to check if it was up.
After having done that, lookup now only took seconds. They were annoyed that it wasn't documented but was just glad it was fixed.2
