The Eighth Dirty Word — “Just”

When two developers are stuck with a problem and someone else wants to help them, he needs to first make up for the previous discussions the two have had and which he missed. I believe the “just” questions are a good way of doing this.

“Why can’t you just X?”

“That will brake Y”

“I see, so how about XX?”

“That will conflict with the requirements, see here”

“Ok I see where you’re at, I can try and aid you with some more brainpower now”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
