Programmers are more productive when they are zoned out and focussing at the task.

I don't know who came up with the idea that one needs to "react now". It began with emails, giving a notification; I turned notifications off and replied at the end of the day. Others react immediately because they felt the need.

Now the phone makes weird sounds when someone posts a reaction on twitter. People expect a reply in minutes, and call you if they think they don't have that time.

I love being in the zone, forgetting time. Hunting the documentation, running examples. Suddenly being hungry when you get out of it.

Interruptions costs the company money. Even lunch. If you interrupt me, you better have a reason that is worth that money, especially if it is not part of the scrummy estimate. And I'll take that lunch when it suits me.
