  • The Pecking Order

    We've all been in a situation where the boss (upon needing to be away), delegated decision making authority to someone they trust. A very long time ago, when I was a newbie fresh out of school, my first job was working for a large military subcontractor with a fairly flat management hierarchy. After several months, I had earned a little ...

  • Re: More stuff I couldn't post while at WTF-Inc

    [quote user="Arnavion"]The code stubs are empty except for a comment that reads "Whatever" ? Doesn't sound like something that's in-built into an IDE. Did they all get introduced by the same guy? Or, if that's anonymization and the methods aren't actually empty, then are they used anywhere?[/quote]not ...

  • More stuff I couldn't post while at WTF-Inc

    Generated code can be a good thing. It permits code to be created based upon configurations; just change a config, regenerate, compile and your application works differently. Auto-generation of code-stubs can be a time-saver too. However, it implies one must do something with the stubs... 27,196 methods across ~3,000 classes; all the same (save ...

  • Stuff I couldn't post while at WTF-Inc

    Whomever created the system in the first place started writing a coding requirements document. I stumbled upon it a while back.

Generally speaking, you can insulate ...

  • Re: WTF-Inc is hiring

    [quote user="DrPepper"]OK, so I'm a contractor; I work for (and am a full-time employee of) a contracting firm. They pay me a salary, and bill the customer for my time. Right now I'm getting (gross, pre-tax) about 60% of the bill rate. Is that normal? I should add I get bennies -- vacation, health care, dental, etc like a ...
