I’ve always been told it’s better to ask for extension because you’re sick than to turn in an unfinished/bad project (I did this before too at a gaming company, and this was the feedback I got when they denied me…manager said he would have been happy to give me an extension if I had asked) at this point I think you should reach out if you know you could have done better

Yeah reach out. Nothing to lose. But use it as a learning experience then it's still a positive.

Reach out and technically it's not finished if it didn't run its unfinished

Remote vs in person for software developers in their early career. I started my career in 2021 fully remote. After the office opened again in 2022, I was able to learn a lot about the system from other people in the office and solve bugs faster. Without a doubt made my job easier. Lots of my colleagues still work from home in 2022. I can’t see why they are making it harder for themselves on purpose. I’m fairly confident they can afford to get to the office because they have teslas and shit.
