A really interesting video, and it seems that the big lesson here was one: write things.

The sad thing is, the people who really need to take notice of this, don't realize they are the poisonous people, especially if they are the ones making a lot of commits, thinking that is all it takes to be a good contributor... Pay close attention to needing goals, and limiting the scope, which does not mean "everyone do whatever they want, willy nilly"

 

22:34 I have been saying a lot of this for years, especially at this point.

It's interesting that you say that, Paradox. When they were talking about "Identifying Poisonous People" you actually meet all most of the requirements. Congratulations.

That's exactly what is wrong with this project is that you guys think I'm the poisonous one.

You do say some right things, no doubt in that, but the shit we have to take from you is not worth it, Paradox.

Thanks for posting this. I had bookmarked it a while ago but lost my bookmarks to a corrupt Firefox profile.

http://www.javacodegeeks.com/2015/07/a-few-valid-reasons-to-reject-a-bug-fix.htm 

Bug fixes are not features; they must be small and focused. It’s a very typical mistake for programmers to get carried away while fixing a bug and introduce some refactoring together with a fix. The result is that the patch gets rather big and difficult to understand. I’m not against refactoring; it’s a very important and positive thing for a project, but do it separately after the bug is fixed and merged.

No refactoring while fixing a bug!

 

Always fix one issue at a time — simple as that. No exceptions.

Combining several bug fixes into a single pull request is a very bad practice. No matter how simple the fix is, keep it separate from others.

>Coding is NOT the same thing as programming. Programming is problem-solving.

>People often mistake coding for programming. They think that if they learn a programming language (such as JavaScript, Python or Ruby), they’ve learned how to program. That’s nonsense, of course. Learning a programming language without understanding how to solve a programming problem is pretty much worthless. It’s like learning Mandarin and not knowing how to express your thoughts effectively or eloquently.

>Make no mistake: problem-solving is difficult. Coding is relatively easy.

Really nice (comment about an) article that warns new developers about the long path they need to walk to be Programmers and not just Coders
