...and peer programming, but my management chain doesn't consider peer programming as an "efficient" use of resources.

I've done a modified version of pair programming where two programmers discuss what needs to be done, then write the same functionality separately and test against each other. It works well when you don't really know what y should be where y = f(x) but still need to build the function.

With Cherry MX switches rated for 50 million keypresses, there must be a pile of dead keyboards beside you... :)

My typing speed record was 97 wpm on the old Underwood typewriter in 1967.
I used that blazing speed to impress new clients and other coders.

Nobody that overthinks will ever touch me.

A previous work associate from Moscow said her boss told her "Don't think Do"

My approach is "I want to see dust" --- like get coding and you will immediately get progress.

Dumb Ol Yourdon and his Structured garbage is crap. I'd compare my IT solutions to his anyday.
