Interestingly I was never taught to do addition/subtraction like that but have always done it that way. It helps me to quickly get to something close when estimating and also get more precise by thinking a little more through the steps.

It's all about limiting the number of steps you have to memorize and being able to break a problem up into a few easier smaller problems.

I haven't used it but the jist I get is that your build system, rather than just outputting an application package that then has to be installed on an OS outputs a complete container that can then be run with zero other dependencies in all your QA/test environments right up until deployed to production.

This is talked about in 1984 with the oft quoted 2+2=5. The double think that is explained of this is that the state forces you to believe that 2+2=5, yet when it comes time to count and add things you understand that 2+2=4 otherwise basic life wouldn't work. When asked by a party official though the response will always be "5"

Someone is unenthusiastic about your work.
