I have finished fictionalizing this epic but true tale of enterprise IT. I feel it can only be told correctly in the second person. Like a text adventure... Enjoy!

It's funny how allowing an entire core communications medium to be infested by scammers and spammers for decades had social consequences. This is what advertising does to social infrastructure.
This is important. If your local health department calls, PLEASE pick up the phone. We all have a responsibility to help stop the virus from spreading further.

My posts about technology and .NET will be sporadic. As much as I want to tell your about the cool stuff happening, I also want you to realize that “back to normal” was never an ideal place for black people to begin with.

Most developers seem intimidating when they talk about code because you lack the familiarity they have! It’s not because they’re smarter. It’s because they’ve spent absurd numbers of hours in a codebase you haven’t.

Before I started working as a developer I didn’t realize how much time you spend just reading code. And sometimes I don’t feel like a very fast reader. What are your tips/strategies for how to read other people’s code efficiently?
