Indian web dev company (during the interview)::
We follow standards

Me:: Hey, can I get the project's github link so that I can fork it, do my tasks, run test cases, push and, make pull request that you can review, run integration test, and finally merge.

Indian web dev company:: What?? Here's the ftp credentials.

    A few years ago my boss joined a company like that.

    Version control was pretty much folders on one guy's laptop....

    So many changes to make!

    Then I joined fortunately, after all that.

    Are we talking flat files in a folder with no versioning?

    This was me when I started my current job.

    Except the FTP creds were to prod, no Dev environment, no version control, no documentation, no.... nothing, just a bunch of live sites and databases.

    I used to intern in a similar company :)

    They all knew about GitHub. Just didn’t think it was that important to use it.

    It was an unpaid internship but it was a cool place. Everyone in the team was really enthusiastic. Didn’t make any profits and the startup sort of disappeared couple of years after I left.

    It was fun while it lasted :)
