The level of fucking backflips I have to do to get these morons to learn git and not share code via fucking emails, Jesus Christ, you'd think I asked them to switch religions. Why the fuck does this profession not require a fucking license in this godforsaken country.

    Because good software with bad UI is bad software.

    I remember one manager telling people to zip the code before committing to SVN. Saves space you know. Smart man, business brain.

    One colleague always checked stuff out of SVN/GIT/etc and copied it into separate folders called v1, v2, v3, v2_tmp, v2_tmp2 etc. He made changes in all of the folders and always just copied the files back to that one single SVN checkout folder to check files in. He told me that's how he's always done it and it's practical.

    Don't even get me started about that one guy that had 35 xterms open at the desktop. He never closed a single one, since he might need it one day!!

    How the fuck do you guys get those people? Are you working in professional environments? Is your product code? Or are you maintaining a company's internal website?

    Because I have only worked in companies for whom I were a money maker and not a cost, i. e. code was our product and for each of the companies, we had good basics. Honestly, a bad setup meant the applications weren't containerised or didn't have continuous integration and deployment.

    Reading your stories, I should count my lucky stars.

    Not just india... I tried to get folks in a Development company to use github to edit a parameter list that needed updates from multiple people and was told nope. Easier to send a shared word doc around.

    I had many things to say about this but moved on as well. Freaking crazy.

    Switching versioning solutions is a lot like changing religion. Mainly its a change needing adoption. Change is not well accepted with most ppl. Even change for the better. I am more lazy then workhorsy, so I rather adopt change that makes my life easier. Like git 👍.
