To be fair our job became very easy..
except for some badass jobs there’s no complexity left on a daily basis.
The reason it takes time is just the quantity of what has to be done, not the complexity..
I feel like the last „mainstream“ area where it was challenging is fintech, even there it’s not what it was 10y ago anymore..
Rest api here, rest api there, some boilderplate Logic to it et voila, it’s done.
Razaranje274y@just8littleBit Fair enough, though I stand by the most complex thing being dealing with people who don't understand the sofrware, but want things done that actually has no relevance to the software.
Such as a dispatch app for insurance, where a call center agent wants pictures of the vehicle being dispatched, which isn't at all relevant, they all look exactly the same except the number plate, which is on the system.
This would just make load times longer...
Marks7e3274yActually. Code is easy, but complex. Because you need to understand the problem to solve and make an extra effort to understand what client actually needs.
Code is a nightmare when you need to integrate with code made "on the run". And basically that's what make you lose the most time.
And that's why you can estimate a HU with 1 point. But explain why you need 1 week to retrieve that HU.
Also, good luck with that bad boss
Razaranje274y@Marks7e I still find coding enjoyable, and nightmares are just new interesting challenges, I honestly have issues with communication with people if it's face to face, so something I should work on, especially when clients want things that contradict or don't know what they want, my people patience is thin... Oops.
Lmao, okay, you don't need 1 week to retrieve an HU, it was me being me and over exaggerating due to frustration.
Thanks, he's not actually that bad, just too eager to please clients and higher ups without thinking about strategy, time lines and priorities, in accordance to what's actually possible to achieve with 3 devs.
