Went into the office to get the new dev spun up. Spent three hours showing him the codebase and explaining how it got into the state it's in. Then lunch. Then more of the same, until we were interrupted to have a meeting about a massive process change. In the short term, we have to eat a bunch of technical debt, but in exchange we get to have more control over future technical debt. Tomorrow I need to come up with a merge plan to make that happen. And also move out of my office so the new guy can have windows.
