An emerging set of anti-patterns in the age of remote work
I love this post! It nails 2 of the 3 issues I've been grappling with since the beginning of the pandemic and remote work. They are async fixation and deep work obsession. You've validated my hunch that pair programming is actually a deep work session. Also, I wanted to point out that async fixation has the negative aspect of reducing a sense of connected-ness on the team.
"Just add a comment to the PR and I'll get to it" - this couldn't have come at a better time! Struggling with some PR issues on the team and I have a feeling async fixation may be playing a role..
