Senior Developer / Senior Developer Advocate
Whose code this is I think I know.
Their desk is over just a row;
They will not see my breakpoint here
To watch some buffer slowly grow.
My IDE must think it queer
To pause without an end-point near
Between the cache and database
On the whim of an engineer.
It inspects the AST about the break
To check if there is some mistake.
A quiet GC mark-and-sweep
Gives the heap a gentle shake.
The code is lovely, dark and deep,
But I have deadlines to keep,
And commits to push before I sleep,
And commits to push before I sleep.
