comment My client's QA folks are shafting me. What can I do?
@JustinCave there's three subcontractor companies, let's call them 1 2 and 3 working under our client's PMO in a project for a client of (his? its? English is not my primary language). I'm a dev on company 3, company 2 provides the QA as well as some developers and company 1 does most of the tech support as well as providing some developers

@mattnz actually, as you can see in the post, the two (2) bugs that I could map myself to were indeed well placed; the rest either belonged to other people who I promptly assigned the bugs to or didn't really make sense. The problem, and the feeling of being spat on, comes from the fact that I had been reported 73 bugs of pretty much randomly assigned severity (stuff like a laggy dropdown was assigned as a blocker) while the actual developers of the actual features were available in plain sight in the same tracking system. Fun fact: Right now I'm looking at 114 new bugs, same scenario

Edited to reflect that.

Judging by the amount of work I´ve been given someone seems to think I´m actually a team of people under my name. All jokes aside, the actual team lead is on extended leave without an explicit replacement, and the most senior dev in the project is actually spearheading another module for the project, and I´ve made it abundantly clear that I´ve had 0 involvement in the project for about four weeks already. The reason I´m posting this is because I´m running out of options for reals, not just imagining things

You have a pretty good point; I´m starting talks about time management already, and kind of negotiated them away from their apparent "there´s no such thing as a minor bug" initial policy (the only minor bug I got was actually a refresh rate issue) to a more acceptable one; that still hasn´t left me a more confortable developer, but I guess it´s a step in the right direction

That´s the thing that is pissing me off. About one in thirteen bug reports are actually addressable by me (about one in three of those is actually caused by code I wrote), the rest of them lay in code that is honestly foreign to me at all. Yet I´m the one getting the reports and being ad-hoc in charge of distributing them to the right developers

comment Vocabulary: Should I call this apply or map?
our language thankfully allows us to get rid of the map function itself (not that it's a bad idea, it's just that it is closer to what I've seen this people do over and over). I think I'm going with fmap as cited in a link below; it's shorter than mapFrom (my previous choice) and sort of mnemotecnic at that

I liked that construct in that the first parameter seems to imply it's going to do [sin.apply(Pi), cos.apply(Pi), tan.apply(Pi)] or something along those lines. I think I'm going for ListOfCallbacks.mapTo(value)

comment Vocabulary: Should I call this apply or map?
In a way the main ambiguity I find is that this can be seen as either _mapping_(think linking them with a line) a single value to list of callbacks and just equally as applying a series of operations to a given value. What'd you suggest is a better way of looking at it?
