In the middle of the desert you can say anything you want

Things I learned at a hackathon^W onsite working session™

  • don’t create branches / merge requests until I start working on the ticket - don’t do many at the same time either, harder and then rebasings needed
  • delete branches after they get merged to main (automatically) - sometimes I didn’t to play it safe but never needed it and have them locally regardless
  • Most of my code is more complex and more layers of abstraction than actually needed, and gets worse with later fixes. Don’t aim for abstraction before abstraction is needed
  • When solving complex-er merge conflicts, sometimes this helps: first leave all imports, merge the rest, and then clean up the remaining imports
Nel mezzo del deserto posso dire tutto quello che voglio.
