wasnt there a big thing several years back where a lot of people were doing cloud based dev environments? like it was a web based text editor, version control, deploy, and execute, so you didnt have to have a local dev environment etc? i dont write the codes so i'm not aware if those ever took off or if people just went back to vscode or w/e and local execution

yeah, they're still popular with some kinds of devs.

Setting a precedent that you don't value work life balance lmao.

we all trade time for money and there is no need to make this weak attempt at shaming someone because they want to trade more of their time for money than you do at this stage of your lives.

lmao when i moved in i had code violations that were older than your house is now

lookit kd with his fancy brand new house, oh just take it for a spin

*kd slaps roof* you can fit so many things that aren't asbestos in this baby

3 years after moving into my house i had to replace the roof and we found out that at some point there was a leak in one of the skylights and the fix had been:

put a funnel under the leak in crawlspace attic. Hose clamp fifteen feet of garden hose to the funnel. Run the hose over above the shower and run it down into the shower pan.


also i still have asbestos siding, it's great.

its my firmly held belief that fibonacci pointing is done to distract nerds from the interminable points-vs-time discussion

nerds: "why dont we just use hours or days, this point system is ridiculous"

agile coach: "so in the point system, we use a fibonacci number system to represent our estimates"

agile has the property of not being able to fail, only to be failed, and if any ideology has that property you can sorta chuck it into the trash immediately

agile is a selection of tools and practices you can use or not use, it is not an ideology
