If they hired you, it's their work. Maybe management is running a program to see how many actual lines of code you write each day. :-) The only way they can do that, is to copy your GIT repository ( or whatever), every couple of hours, thereby allowing them to verify how much your code changes from day to day... and get an accurate code_lines_per_day average on you.
That is how they judge programmers, by how many lines_per_day you can generate ... just like a typist used to be judged.
And if you type purposely obfuscated code, it will be obvious, and it will harm your reputation. Furthermore, all software needs to be documented, so even if you obfuscate, you should be required to explain how it works in the docs.
I say UNITE fellow keyboard hackers! It's time we excercise
our God-given rights as code-monkeys, and have a code slowdown, you know, everyone just hanging out at the water cooler, maybe dipping to the bathroom a few extra times per day. Lets get that average code_lines_per_
day count to the low 20's. wake up Code Monkey
