What will your day look like?
09:00 – You boot your dev-machine and once you settle in you start reading the Slack Git history. No emails here! 🎉
09:30 – Development team stand-up! You quickly debrief with your team and discuss what you're tackling today!
11:00 – Our German Quality Manager is at your desk because her experiment has led to a critical bug. A hotfix release will need to be issued.
12:30 – The bug has been solved. While test pipelines are validating our code and a production update deploys automatically, so you grab your free lunch and chat with friends from other startups at the TQ tech space. Join the badminton diehards if you dare! 🏸
13:15 – Customer support is not happy with the speed of the back-end. The issue you are working on is about Blackfire profiling to identifying bottlenecks on assigning editors. You shortly discuss your findings with the rest of the dev team and propose a solution.
14:00 – TQ has a new post on the Slack #events channel. Next week there's a Q&A with a Google exec. Sweet! You sign up and set it in your calendar. #techlife 🚀
14:15 – Our application is 6 years old, so while refactoring you propose a new interface for placing reviews to make our legacy code follow SOLID principles. You continue refactoring our review module by introducing an ACL on the aggregate root, because our Domain Driven Design decisions did change the bounded context around placing reviews.
16:30– Anne passes out Oreos to the team as the bells of the Munttoren chime. Life is good!
Around 18:00 – It’s Friday, so you head upstairs for happy hour with the crew and other TQ teams! Free beer! Bas suggests we check out The Smallest Disco again... Cheers to a great week!
