Non-work banter and water cooler conversation

A place for non-work-related flimflam, faffing, hodge-podge or jibber-jabber you’d prefer to keep out of more focused work-related channels.

this is totally random so probably the right channel to ask!

If you were joining a company and they had a slack application that helped you get onboarded, what would you like that app to do? (other than doing your work for you..) they sky is the limit!

onboarding is usually accompanied by a lack of team resources (wiki, jira, git, HR tools like PTO, calendars, other teams, and info about the org structure, etc…).

I’m always a bit flabbergasted at the lack of interaction by my peers that just try to stay in their lane to accomplish what they’re doing. Any attempt at reaching out results in crickets. Anything to mitigate things like that IMO

What would help is basically a manual for the team. For example, code standards, links to repos, git branching strategy, how to request PTO, introductions to team members, code freezes, info about teams and stakeholders that we interact with.

What might spark some discussion is that GitOps is on Hold alongside with AWS CodePipeline

Might be a good one to discuss in #office-hours — I would appreciate hearing folks thoughts on GitOps and what their pitfalls have been.

@Lyn Chen Music is a great way to focus and i use it all the time. mostly chill instrumentals. On youtube i listen to chilled cow. and i prefer Amazon Music vs the other streaming services. Matt Gowie also shared a cool site for music with multiple channels… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qap5aO4i9A https://lofi.cafe/
