Thanks. I’ve been hearing about FP from buzzword people but this is the first explanation I’ve seen.

At my last job we had a dev lead (not for long) who never met a fad that was too goofy for him. He would yap serial buzzwords, eventually dropping sentences altogether. When he was already in the doghouse for doing zero work he embarked on touching up all my trace logging text with capital letters and periods.

Only things he knew how to do were

1) evangelize Microsoft products

2) create conflicts in the team

3) demand that we drop everything and make risky changes with zero gain just because of some alleged “industry standard”

Thanks for helping me get over this creep. Seriously .
