In your country, are programmers/software engineers forced to do overtime in order to meet deadlines? 👇👇👇
Also 👉If you have a very tight schedule, would you choose meeting the deadline with bad code or postpone the project with good and clean code?
⏹️ The correct answer is: deliver less code, but good code
⏹️ The real answer is: it depends.
If your bad code will not make disasters now,
if your bad code will surely be fixed in no time, and
if failing the deadline would make your project stop,
➡️ you MAY think of cutting some corners.
But you must know that this will cost much.💰👎
👉 Perhaps the task needs to be completed to keep the entire service from going down.
👉 Perhaps a customer delivery absolutely positively has to be done, due to some contractual agreements.
Both of those would indicate a lack of planning on someone’s part somewhere, but sadly, it does happen.
🦉 In that case, I will do whatever needs to be done to get it finished, including working overtime if need be.
🙅♂️ The process is supposed to serve us. We’re not supposed to serve the process. If we can articulate a sprint goal, then fine. But we can’t change the work that needs to be done just to try to satisfy having a sprint goal.
