- At times we get feedback on our work in not so direct way. Recently I was on vacation and as I rejoined my group one of my colleague mentioned, "yaaay welcome back ; P we missed you!". Since I work remotely it wasn't exactly me who they missed it was my contributions to the team. On one side it is reassuring that my role in the team is crucial and it gives me a sense of security but on other side it also reflects that work I do and its accompanying documentation, is not complete for others to take over as I go on vacation or leave. Point taken.
- Someday back I was applying for a position and application form needed me to share code sample or link to github repository of my work. For sometime I tried to dig out past code, which would qualify as "good code", good variable names, code which can make sense while reading with documenting parts where it was needed. It delayed the application by a day or two till the time I realized, that, it is okay to share even the most recent code which I had worked on. The above mentioned standards are something which are always there while we are working on something, the code will always have scope of improvement and it is okay to get comments and feedback on it as long as it is constructive and makes the code better.
