Optics matter. You could be doing a shit job (as a developer), but if you keep up the good optics with the boss, agreeing to build a calculus app in the future, even though the multiplication api you are currently working on keeps throwing error, you'll look good.2
There is a fuck-nut moron developer in my team who's been driving me crazy. I end up having multiple conversation with him on the same problem; I give him the solution; he nods his head and then makes the same mistake he made earlier.
I really want to help him learn and grow, but one can only tolerate so much stupidity before giving up.4
do you have a visible tattoo?
if so, have you ever been discriminated because of it?
I have been thinking about getting an arm tattoo for a couple of years now. Never been able to make the call to go for it.10
my manager pings me to get info on stuff he's coordinating with others.
such as, it this possible to do? what's the estimate? what's the flow?

and when the information flows back to me, I hear folks saying that he came with this idea/estimate.

of late my team has slipped in the rather irritating habit of not scheduling review meetings; instead they just announce during scrum that they'll have a review right after scrum. this just messes up the day. you go to scrum thinking 15-20 minutes, and boom you end up with 3 hours of back to back unscheduled meetings1
