I've reached the point in my career where I need to create a stack overflow account

pray for me

Either the Jenkins documentation got way better, or I got better at reading it

I have a sneaking suspicion that "put the project details in the bag" will not go well

people working in corporate jobs: when you inherit a project, or part of a project, what is the best way to ask for all the relevant details on the project so that you don't keep putting your foot in your mouth or doing unnecessary work that is voided by decisions made before you arrived?

i had to collect myself for a minute after realizing/remembering that Jenkins itself is a Jenkins Plugin

Does anyone have any advice for doing this? I'm not really sure how to wire all the switches up - iirc you have to treat it like a matrix and wire rows/columns into your controller, but I can't visualize it for some reason

really wishing i had pulled the trigger on a 3d printer last year

Ahh, there's already a class named Timer? No need to fix that class, we'll just make a new one called Timmer!

I'm setting up some build agents for a client's CI system, and I gotta tell y'all

after years of having to have a windowing system present to run software tests, there is NOTHING as satisfying as unchecking all the GUI options when you're installing a VM

take that, past me
