This is why coding sucks now

So I passed by the interview for the new programmer. They sit him in a conference room and three guys interrogate him (or I guess it could be a her but usually not.) While a manager stares at the guy the whole time. Judging. Christ what a nightmare. This is why I can’t code anymore. Not in a bigger company anyway. Then the kid leave and they talk about him for a half an hour in the damn hallway. (headphone on!)

Who the fuck wants to write code by committee. Fucking shoot me. This teamwork shit that we are all supposed to be rah rah for sucks anus. Team work should be limited for coders. IMHO

This is why everyone wants to be a manager. So they can act alone once in a while.

So frustrating, some dumb dick writes a book, says team work is best and we are all stuck for the next 20 years doing agile and paired coding (never!) and code reviews.

bah I say! bay to you!!

Gen Con Cometh

Comic Con is great, but I can drive to Gen Con. Fuck yeah. I’ll be there. And if you have a Savage Worlds game you want me to play. Let’s do it. Also check out this game and these guys: both rock http://www.brokenrooms.com/ These guys are Ennie Nominated and should get it.

I’m kinda pumped to see an X-Files movie, if that was real. I’m really pumped that Saga did well, I like that comic. I’m pumped that Sandman will be back and will start re-reading that little slice of awesome. I really would like to fly out and go to Comic Con one year. As much as I love Gen Con, I’m falling out of the game and into the story. I mean I was always a setting nerd, I used to read the Magic: The Gathering novels, so…you know. But I used to want to be active so bad that I had to game so I could do something in the world that I enjoyed. But holy shit if you write, you do everything in the world that you enjoy not only do but make, and control and own. And look, if you don’t enjoy it what the fuck are you writing for? Go read Sandman or watch the Avengers movie.

Stay tuned.
