Refactored #085: “Hustle Culture”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • Rails' has_one / belongs_to associations trip Chris up. What a dumb-dumb.
  • Chris makes the point that most of software development is yak shaving.
  • There is much dissection of why undergrad programs fail to produce people with basic skills.
  • The guys fight about hustle culture. Necessarily toxic? You decide.
  • There is much reconciliation when the guys agree about the behaviors of curiosity and peripheral vision.
  • Hiring sucks. Seriously. One of the hardest parts of the jerb.
  • The guys agree that trust & delegation are key to any team, at any point, of any size, in perpetuity and throughout the entire universe.
  • Go Phils! <internal note - do not publish>: wait, do we really invoke the sportsballs here?
  • … and much more!
