Week Notes Vol 68
August 23, 2020
Our PM quit a week before a big project launch. Was I suprised? No. He had been restless and looking his way out for a while. I’ve also seen many similar discussions in the Slack communities I am part of where people are quite fed up with things that used to be minor annoyanced that have snowballed during the lockdown. Or they are simply bored. Due to healthcare being tied to employers there’s plenty of employees holding onto jobs they can only barely tolerate while looking their way out. One would think that jobs are scarce in 2020 with all the layoffs but for tech workers there are still plenty opportunities out there.
The launch went fine. No one had to stay up for 24 hours straight to avoid some epic failure. There were still plenty of minor things that could have been better but that’s what postmortems are for.
