Me at my new job: Can I please install a version controlling system to keep my codes organized?

Boss: why do you need it? can't you just navigate the directories?

Me: I will go mad in 2 years!
Opens VS 2019 ... sees Local Git Repo system... mind blown!!! :O

    Mind blown because git is github?

    @electrineer VS2019 has a local system as well. You can link it up with GitHub by giving it a URL to your GitHub, but i am happy with a local git system too!

    Also: if you need it, just install it yourself?

    If you can't, leave. Arbitrary red tape is often systemic and omnipresent; best to simply leave in such a situation.

    We're also not using a proper version control system. We basically yell at each other to find out who's using what file and the pray we don't overwrite each other's things. Sad stuff

    @eisenhiem this has nothing to do with visual studio, its just how git works.

    the only thing that's forbidden by company policy is installing or dual booting linux :(
