How offensive! 15 Jul, 2004
Is this for real I wonder? Do you know people like the developers described in the piece? I suppose they must exist, but as a “corporate developer” myself, I just find this offensive…
» Jared Odulio: Anatomy of a Corporate Developer. An excerpt:
A corporate developer eats buzzwords for breakfast, lunch and dinner. He/she thinks that wearing a shirt with an IT vendor’s logo embroidered in the left chest is awesome and geeky. He/she never touched a linux box in his entire development career and never heard of Gnome. And normally, his/her language of choice is Visual Basic until Java became so hot, he/she jumped the bandwagon. He believes that good practices aren’t necessary as long as the system is currently working.
