Discussion on: How do you fight boredom in software development?

Seems the more Sr. I get, the more many of the tasks become "boring," as you say. I call it "making license plates" (though I appropriated the phrase from Cryptonomicon).

I listen to music, put on anime/tv for background, heavily plan the effort down to the minutia. It also helps to split the day up with other devs fitting in a couple of pair sessions (teaching can be fun).

I also apparently post on DEV.
