Sneak Peak!

About Stories

What would happen if we had hourly standups? Or 9 hour days? How do we resolve differences about coding standards? Who should get credit for what? How should we decide when to replace legacy software?

What can we do to make meetings more exciting? How can we tell how stupid I.T. managers really are? How should we decide who to hire? What's the best way to start a startup? How should programmers prepare for a technical interview?

These are just a few of the many I.T. mysteries explored by "Stories", the first eddiots long-form comic book. Of course, the biggest mystery of them all: what's taking you so long to read this book?

About Eddiots

This is a work of fiction inspired by real events I witnessed, endured, or instigated.

Every character and company is a composite of real people and places from my work life. I just changed the names to protect the incompetent.

Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or businesses, active or bankrupt, is either coincidental or unavoidable because these eddiots are everywhere!

Thanks to all you bossholes, players, liars, fakers, slackers, posers, jerks, cheaters, and producers of endless technical debt. I used to hate you but now I love you because I need no imagination. I just share forward the suffering you shared with me.

About Eddie Ottic

Eddie Ottic has written 2 million lines of code for 94 firms in 50 years. There's a good chance something you own was built with his software.

He loves coding but hates going to work. Everywhere he's ever been had sufficient tech. None had sufficient management but plenty of bossholes.

When he says this, he's "not a team player". But when his comics say the same thing, others listen, laugh, and learn the inside truths no one else teaches. That's why he built eddiots.

He's a fair writer, a lousy artist, and a lazy developer. But combining them makes the magic vector art about his long I.T. incarceration. Read it, learn something, and most of all, have fun!
