Mine is not technical. Overall, I am pleased with the tools and helps I have in VS2022.

My least favorite part of coding is interference in my coding by non-technical project managers.

Such as (and I paraphrase for brevity):
“That will take too long to do it right.”
“Are we there yet?”
“I read somewhere you should be using language Y instead of language X. Go back and rewrite all the code in language X.”
“We don’t need exception handling and logging. Just do it without all that.”
“Why is it taking so long?”
“Let’s add more programmers so we get this done sooner.” (said about halfway or after the midpoint of the project)
“We need more meetings.”

And, of course, the reader could add more.

P.S. I have over 20 years as a project manager with the technical knowledge, skills, and abilities. This is about the non-technical project managers who don’t have the necessary knowledge and experience on how software engineering projects differ from other projects they learned about in their coursework. I thank God everyday for those non-technical project managers that understand they need to learn the difference and are teachable. They make fantastic project managers.
