Working Code Podcast - Episode 175: Overcompensation, Mentoring, And More

Published in

On today's show, we cover a variety of topics. I talk about overcompensation at work; and, how we often swing way too hard in one direction at the first signs of a challenge. Carol talks about how her current task got away from her; and, how she suddenly found herself creating a Pull Request with 84 files in it (I have strong feelings about Pull Requests). Tim talks about the generational smoking ban going into effect in England. And Adam talks about the challenges of mentoring junior developers; and, how hard it's been to have enough "right sized" tasks ready for them to work on.

All that and more on this week's show:

... featuring these beautiful, beautiful people:

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
