comment How common is pair programming in the workplace?
It's sad to hear those unreasonable rules management applies to the programmers (That's pretty dumb, don't you think? They have to put extra effort to keep us happy to balance that)

comment Is this Job Smell?
@m.edmondson if your test code will go into production, it's a bad sign for this company.
