What about MDD.

Marketing makes up shit that either is stupid or cannot be done, then says its easy, and because it promises it to future clients, then creates the framework for development features.

Problem is either these ideas or old or shit, or just cannot be done nicely without a well defined and tried and tested workflow.

Gradual evolution based development, like Firefox and Linux are the only ways to go. Know your features, code for them, then tell marketing to work of a working copy, not a pie in sky shit that makes presales look good.

SQL sucks.

Not only does it look ugly, it has ugly commands, that make GPU shaders look intuitive.

How many complex queries does a medical system need? You only deal with one patient at a time, you arent doing *ALL* records data mining for patterns.

So those 30 year olds hiring people, immediately cut off any one with more than 10 years experience do they?

Do they assume those people will be listening to beatles music and be old shits, type slow, or like 4:3 screens, and use vi?

Time flies, all those 30yr olds will be 40 soon.

Just wait will 2040, when your job will be outsourced to dozens of 3rd world countries.

Oh and your burger joint will be 100% robotic, so will taxis, and hell, 90% of jobs will be robot run, and you will make a video, "shit damn I wish I did robotics or AI coding, not stupid govt medicare website"

CEOs are technically employed, but they do not REALLY work do they.

Attend meetings, read the internet, attend meetings, play golf, fly a jet or two, stay in hotels, travel to other meetings, oh tell the PA to do a,b,c,d.

CEOs arent super human, their brain capacity is not 20x average. Im sure any seasoned programmer could do what a CEO does, remember more details, understand tech better.

Oh but the real skills come in social engineering and getting that billion dollar deal, by tricking the client.

Programmers are TOO HONEST! "yeah this server is shit, its capacity is poor", CEO says, "it will solve all solutions , no admin needed"

I beg to differ, if a large solution requires say, 20 processes running, with common libs, and config files.

Yeah do it in java, you could just as easily do it in perl, code it cleanly to look like java, no corrupted files. ie no short cuts.

IF its requires 400 functions in java, then its equally possible in Perl. Doesnt have to be one file, you can make modules to do each task.

A good design will be equally good in Perl and in Java. Just about every problem is really either converting large amounts of data from A -> B. or triggering events based on rules when processing any data.

why? If you do 50hrs a week on pure C#, and are considered a genius on it, then you can implement and code anything in it that you can in any other language. If a company only makes C# apps or only has C# web services, why would you need java or C++ expertise. Though if youre an expert in C#, you would find other langs easy to learn.

Java wont magically make a giant problem 10x easier.

So unless you require 100000 linux machines in a cluster, that is cheaper than 100000 windows machines, C# is good.

Infact, I would prefer C# compiled to binary over C++ any day. And which C++ ? there are many variants and addon frameworks that restrict your environments.

Managers how fire staff, then outsource work to their own shell company at 3x the hourly rates to pocket their own wallet are FRAUDSTERS.

Assembly is nothing more than the core basics of a language, maths on values, moving numbers, function calls, branch on logic. Everything else is just a combination of the basics, but re-useable in more apps/libs/frameworks.

Infact, everything comes down to just an conditional ADD instruction.

What it all comes down to is this, can you or your team finish the project, before a competitor, so you can seal the deal and make the cash.

Those who can, do; those who can't, write. Those who can't write work for the Bell Labs Record.
