A random thought on tech leaders
21 Mar 2017
Technical leaders don't have any reason for not sharing their code with their fellows.
- They also make mistakes.
- Due to their technical expertise, they are also educating with the example.
- Sharing code changes will make other fellows aware of what recently happened and why.
I'm not a TL. This is my point of view as a developer.
I asked a colleague of mine (a TL, someone which I really admire) and not only confirmed what I was thinking but also told me that even if you're in a hurry, you should create a pull request for your teammates. You need to merge it immediately, but your fellows can take a look and be aware of.
We should not even speak about commiting directly into develop/master and don't let anyone know about it, like if Git doesn't have a history to look for... come on, we can do it better!
