This year on Thanksgiving, as we eat our holiday meals and hopefully get some rest over the long holiday weekend, it’s an opportunity - as developers and engineers - to pause and appreciate (with a tad bit of humor) just how far dev teams have come.
A la David Letterman…the top 10 reasons dev teams can be thankful this Thanksgiving
#10 Working from home/hybrid.
#9 Everyone in the world can now see your screen. You can stop asking.
#8 The robots are one step closer to replacing us. Meanwhile this is fun.
#7 Fewer editor wars, well, unless you use VIM. Plus, most people can exit VIM now.
#6 Community events are F2F again.
#5 You actually did something on one of those domains you’ve been renewing for years.
#4 Dev tools that help you manage your //TODOs.
#2 No more knowledge leaks. Swimm playlists can help someone offboard just as nicely as they help them onboard.
#1 You understand the code you wrote two months ago. Continuous Documentation
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Swimm!
