<<"It helps, of course, to bother them as little as possible and to ask
the smartest questions you can.">>


In my experience, I've found the "how" of asking questions to be just as
important as asking the right questions. I'd ask my developers how they
wanted to approach my questions. Did they want one email a day with all
of my questions lumped together? Perhaps one email for each issue for
better tracking? Some preferred F2F discussions. I learned which ones
were grumpy at what part of the day and tried to avoid Grumpy Time.

When I demonstrated that I valued their time and wanted to be mindful of
their preferences, they generally reciprocated.
