Much of that US developer advice I just boosted also applies to those of us in the UK. If I'd known this earlier I probably wouldn't be plotting my escape into DevOps/Sysadmin stuff!
A couple of points I'd add:
* Keep finding the joy in your work. It's easy to get buried in the "not code" stuff and think "this ain't what I signed up for!". This leads down a very dark path...
* Your time at work is valuable. Spend it wisely, and make sure what you say "yes" to is worthwhile
@jeffcliff I often find as a developer I'll be pulled into meetings I don't need to be in.
For cross-team stuff it probably makes sense for 1 person in a dev team to go and share notes later. For other stuff asking "does this need to be a meeting?" & "do we really need a dial-in for this?" can free up a lot of time
Similarly if people are asking you for paperwork, I can guarantee managers want their devs to prioritise code. If it's raised as an issue, the manager will fix it!
