I again relaxed a bit last two weekends and didn’t publish a reader chit-chat. Welcome readers, I can’t thank you enough for sticking with the blog. I often write craps, I admit. But not always and intention is never to write a crap.
The project I talked about in past weekly chit-chat is now making my life miserable. It was supposed to happen that way, as we were not given much choices to decide on the delivery date our-self, it was given to us by the upper level leaders. We ramped up resources like anything but, still we are short of hands. And, when you hire a new resource, existing resources get stressed because of additional up-skilling tasks they need to perform.
If you are not in computer software industry, let me tell you the last-minute mad-dash is a constant feature in every project and in every company, starting from Microsoft to Google. Developers and testers spend literally their 24 hrs in office during some critical deployments. Yours truly spent quiet a few such days in office in 12 years of working life so far.
