Any one else who uses visual studio find them self pressing Ctrl + . When there is a typo in an office document or email and it is underlined in red with a swiggly line thinking it’s intlisense? Then get pissed for that it doesn’t pop up!?4
So today I found a file share containing some super super sensitive information accessible to what I think was our entire user base (6,500 users) if you knew the server name and had an interest in nosing around.
I reported it to our head of IT and heard nothing after, although 5 mins after reporting I could no longer access...
I suspect the infrastructure lead is going to be a dick (because his one of them awkward non team player kind of guys) and not thank me for preventing our company from being in national news papers... but try to spin it on why am I nosing around his servers in the first place..
I actually feel 50/50 about if I should of told or not.. but on flip side, I guess the access logs of me listing the files as I flick through to confirm my suspicions would of caused s bigger headache.
Fucking useless infrastructure engineers!9
So my boss wants this mssql reference table editor. Where you point it at references table containing mapping references and it will build a pretty gui for editing the table.... and they want it in like 3 days... so I now either hack something together which is so tightly coupled to the scheme of the table it will require redevelopment each time a new reference table needs adding to be edited or I don't deliver on time and give them a solution which will understand the schema and build the exit view dynamically... I'm starting to hate these stupid deadlines! And to top it all off they justify it with stuff like "it's just an edit view!?!?" Or recently on a basic form I created it was "why do you need to write c#? It's just a HTML form!?"2
Coding has changed my life in a way where I no longer look for simple answers. I look at things deeper and more logically.
That this picture for example, I was at a pub quiz and got this handout, #2 I was thinking was hex, or the ASCII table or some sort of shifted by one arrangement. Nope! They just put numbers between the fucking letters!?!?!??5
Being part of the team who did the initial investigation and analysis on the wannacry ransomware which took down our hospital. 100 hours in one week getting everything back online. Was intense but amazing!8
How do you tell people in your team their code is poorly written?
I am not an amazing developer, I lack experience of real world and don't have many finished products under my belt.
But I feel/think my code is well separated into separate classes, follows DRY well and is generally considered as following good practises.
However, the main Dev in this new small team which has been put together and I have been appointed to manage sees things differently.
He writes good functional code(it completes it main purpose) however it's all in the one program.cs file, lacks good comments and is just generally untidy :(
I kinda fell into this whole management thing and it's kinda new to me..
Maybe he just needs a bit of direction? I am going to be putting in a code styling guide
Any tips on managing a Dev team would be very much appreciated.
PS. Iv been around for a while, and did previously have an account which was quite active, however I decided to delete and create this new more anonymous account :P10
