How to Communicate With Efficiency and Courtesy
If you know someone who constantly interrupts you while you’re working with unimportant questions or comments, send them a link to this post. The method of communication you choose to use should depend on how fast you need your answer, AND how fast you expect the other person to respond. Choosing the wrong method of communication can be disruptive and discourteous. As a developer, I find myself on both sides of this problem.
