Bob the programmer

Once there lived a programmer. His name was “Bob”. Bob was an expert in time management.
A typical ‘work day’ for Bob looked like this:

9:00 a.m. – Arrive and surf Reddit for a couple of hours. Watch cat videos

11:30 a.m. – Take lunch

1:00 p.m. – Ebay time.

2:00 p.m – Facebook updates – LinkedIn

4:30 p.m. – End of day update e-mail to management.

5:00 p.m. – Go home

And yet, for the last several years in a row he received excellent remarks. His code was clean, well written, and submitted in a timely fashion. Quarter after quarter, his performance review noted him as the best developer in the building.

I am not joking it’s a true story. Please make time to read Case Study: Pro-active Log Review Might Be A Good Idea
