I hate that we're pushing the 10x and the 996 narratives forward for developers now that crunch is taboo. These are bad examples and work techniques, it's just same shit different day.

Being a 10x dev seems cool, until the burnout hits you

Twice, because you don't seem to get it


Also, yeah, great, "this dude is 10 times more effective than you" is an excellent pathway to get managers to overwork their team.

Because one can do it doesn't mean everyone can be a 10x. But middle management is in general too braindead to understand that. It's meritocracy all over again.
