Feeling grateful for who, aside from being a great manager (see: this thread), is the best I’ve ever seen at quickly navigating code she didn’t write and making it better

Do managers at Facebook get to do people management and write code at the same time usually?

This is pretty standard at FB, unless you’ve got a larger team or are responsible for supporting multiple teams. Some managers are much better at it than others.

Now there's a skill that I'd like to learn. Does teach classes on understanding other people's code?

+1 to that. I would actually love to get better at that. I wonder if it comes naturally with experience.

I dunno how to teach this well, but maybe I could do a livestream of my thought process sometime! I might need someone else to suggest something to debug though

IMHO, in tech, that should be the rule, not the exception! I’m really thankful for the work done in react and I think that the key for their success is far more than technology skills. Fostering human relationships like does is a requirement for this job :)

(2) having a manager that does understand the need for social skills as relevant as the technological ones is great. does this effortlessly. Furthermore, being a technology reference, it makes it easier to relate to her teammates that see her as a peer

it's kinda cheating since I know the React codebase already though

Right, but on the other hand but it might be interesting to watch you try and track down a bug in React itself - especially if it's a complicated one, to watch your thought process

Any random JavaScript library would be great. As you say, it's an academic exercise about revealing a thought process so anything would do. The more unfamiliar you were with it the better. 😊

Would love to see you going through react code base cuz I really want to understand it and also cuz I failed when I tried by myself 🙈
