I walked around to check out the dev-team. Had a quick talk, so that I knew what I would sign up for.
This developer had his code-editor open and I looked at his controller, where there was this mulit nested Hadoken terror foreach loop.
I said: "Well, a lot of stuff happening over there!"
He said proud: "Yeah, nice or what"
Later I talked to the lead and senior developer and found out that he was a senior, because he worked there longest. So yeah.. super lol. But I needed work, so I took the job.
How did that work out for you? Where you able to implement better coding standards? Best practices? Bring positive change to the team?
I see this as a challenge but also an opportunity to help improve a team.
The snowboard trips were nice, the parties were great. Nice people and good co-workers.
All were willing to learn. So we added Sonar-Qube for code quality, implemented and iterated on scrum practices, with retrospectives and bi-weekly lightning talks to improve the team and incite continuous learning.
BUT I never got technically satisfied or inspired by co-workers.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
