Loading time in development

I’ve seen web applications taking about 1 minute to load in the browser while developing. After you hit refresh, you just wait… 40, 50, 60 seconds.

Same for background services: you write code, then “sudo service name restart” and wait 20, 30 seconds to have the service up again.

It’s very sad there are developers who are OK with that, they don’t complain, they just do their work and… wait. And some are doing this for years.

I try to understand each unpleasant situation I meet, some of them having deep roots that are difficult to break (not impossible). Although, the case of such poor loading time in development overwhelms my patience. I find no reason this should be accepted for. It hits the product, the business itself.
