Coding for Managers

I haven’t written a line of code in about a week at work. Sure I’ve reviewed some code, and made suggestions for developers, but I haven’t typed out any code in about a week now. It seems like management issues keep overwhelming any day to day coding or research. I’m beginning to feel like an ‘Enterprise Architect,’ I just draw pretty UML diagrams and let the programmers implement my design. Danger! Danger! Will Robinson.

So this week things will change. I’m putting together a JUnit intro for our organization since many of them still don’t get the paradigm. And I’m coding in a half decent IDE, like IntelliJ, not just living in the ever so horrible PowerPoint IDE. ‘Code or Die’ like the old skateboard video game goes.
