That really has to be the densest collection of software development jokes ever made. I laughed... "Upfront Design: If A Little Is Good, A Lot is Better" ...and then cried bitter tears.
Pair Managing: Two Managers per Programmer by Jim Highsmith
Awesome. Which one manages, and which one reviews the other one's managing?
DangerIsMyMiddleName, I came across your Gmail book in a bookstore yesterday. Good work, man. /derail
The sad bit is that real-life software development is even funnier. Software Developer: It's 90% complete. Manager: Yeah, okay. By the way they want Feature X added, so be there for the 8:00 meeting. Software Developer: Yeah, okay. Can we document after the code's done? Manager: Yeah, okay. But we want 10% higher quality than last time. Software Developer: Sure. I just have to find 10% more bugs right? Manager: That's right. But they have to be good bugs.
ooh! blimey, mct!
between the geeks and the hos I know, I am constantly amazed any business stays afloat for longer than 3 months at any time, ever. With the exception of Mindcro$quash. They're a monopoly.
My small group has devolved from 8 workers and 2 managers (which was one too many) to 4 workers, 4 managers and, as of yesterday, a co-manager, in the two years I have been there. At one time we ditched two workers to cut costs and the next day got our third manager. It seems even worse written down like that.
Markr, you didn't fill in your timesheet correctly.
Or your TPS report.
