You are a consultant and wrote some easy scripts by copying code snippets together?

Good for you!

It makes your job easier?

Good for you!

You didn't care too much about UI because you only needed the job to be done?

That's fine!

BUT DON'T YOU DARE SELL THIS SHIT TO A CUSTOMER AND CALL YOURSELF A SOFTWARE DEVELOPER!

YOU ARE NO DEVELOPER!
YOU DON'T KNOW NOTHING ABOUT HOW TO BUILD A RELIABLE SOFTWARE.

no one needs a solid database structure?
Object oriented programming is "just another hype"?
No one cares for the coding?

FUCK YOU, AND YOUR ATTITUDE!

    Not working with OOP is fine, but it does not seem as if he has any idea how to use FP correctly. I feel your pain.

    Thanks :-)

    The software is written in a language, that is supposed to be OOP..

    Lol my boss did this internally. He/she wrote a python script that went something like this:

    import fancyLib

    f = open("users/bossmanpierre/companydata.csv", "r")
    fancyLibRun(f)

    and then he went on for months saying how he basically showed the engineers how it's done and he just needed them to put the dots on the i. He referenced this innovation in at least 5 meetings afterwards.

    The weird part is I don't think he was lying or self-promoting I think he really believed he was a far superior engineering talent

    I assume at some point you left him bleeding in an appropriately grimy alleyways, yes?

    No but if eye-rolls did damage my colleagues would have disintegrated him several times over

    1. Go over fancyLib github page
    2. Read through Issues tabs
    3. Prepare a *special* CSV for his script to load
    4. Profit!

    One of my former managers wrote a simple order page for a product of a campagne. The code was not good, but it worked. He just didn't want a developer to spend time on it. I admired him for that
