Let's say I'm a product owner and I have a project and a team of developers. The product is in development for half a year. It was all good at the start, but now the speed of development is very low with a lot of regression bugs in every build. You took a look at the project's codebase and it was a disaster: no structure, no codestyle, no tests, e.t.c, just a one big technical debt. What is your strategy to help the product owner in this case?
Rewrite all from scratch?
Refactor most critical parts of the project by yourself?
Teach the team programming culture and introduce the best practices?
I'd love to know how you broke into the field. For instance, I'm assuming you started as a developer. How did you get your earliest consulting gigs? Is it a kind of bootstrapping problem, and then once you're established, it's easier to get work? Also, was doing talks part of it for you?
Should we use monolith web app in docker?
What stack/service you use for log aggregation and CI/CD?
Should I consider joining a consulting company after just 2 years of work experience or is that too early for me?
No, I suggest having at least 5yrs experience. 10 is better. Of course, you can do what you wish, or even start your own consulting company (I did that one too!)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
