1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
For first time about to leave though. Anyone still using my CPForAndroid? I love it. Just when I thought the code was bad I upgraded my phone to MAXX (when it first came out a year ago? 6 months ago??) and it still works. I know its basic but it still allows me to hang CP style
Never seen them myself, but the first Mortal Kombat movie cost $18M1 and grossed $70M in the USA alone. Not too shabby. But like usual, they did not quit while they were ahead and tried to make a sequel2 that did not do as well.
You have to watch them man. All will be made clear.

Well yeah, makes sense. The first one people didn't know what they were getting into. You buy a ticket because of the popularity of the title, realize you just got shafted, go home. For round two people wised up.
Especially since the kernel version numbers haven't made any sense in a long while. (I do wonder if changing the minor number lately is because of a lot of software which doesn't check the version number correctly.)
Only in that it's not called Windows 9. You were asserting that it would be called something completely different ala "Vista" and that it wouldn't be based on Threshold. You also said the announcement was supposed to be on September 20 and then that it wouldn't happen today, on September 30. On top of that, you tried to shout down anyone who disagreed with you.
EDIT: So, even if you get a point for it not being Windows 9, you lose half a point for it still using a number and being called Windows 10. Added up, your score is now something like:
I recently joined a company. I don't know what role i'm actually into but I'm exposed to all areas of the project. This is what i figured...
Developers are developing without a design.
Developers are not fully aware that they are developing a service oriented application.
Application architecture is a complete mess.
Anti-patterns are implemented in almost all area's of application
AngularJs application is sitting on top with absolutely no separation of controller and service logic. No separation of controllers itself. Everything is written in single js file.
Classic MVC web application sitting in the back-end with web controllers in it and with no Models and some piece of code is written in the Base controller to serialize the object to Json string which is given to angularjs app. Model is defined in the XML file. Developers are not aware of API controllers.
Entity Framework is Ignored and classic ADO.NET is chosen for data access. Even the simple database logic is written in stored procedure
A small module is almost complete and team is literally scared to add/remove anything to the application because doing so will break the application.
Some master tables are mocked-up to support the development of the current module
There's no naming convention followed anywhere
Implementation of Authentication and authorization is incorrect. anybody can take the username, password or the session
The team doesn't know how to enable cross-origin resource sharing so url-encoded content type is used for all HTTP post.
Even the look-up table have these four columns - create_by, create_Date, UpdateBy , updatedt
Every week we have a project meeting and demo with the client. We show the same screen to the client with some changes which was requested in the previous meeting
There's no business analyst or Technical architect in this project. Some developers with no design skills are working on this huge enterprise application.
Team doesn't ask for help, they don't research but they google and copy, paste any code that they think it works.
Business domain and User Requirements are very interesting, An awesome US Client is looking for a real system. A decent amount is charged every month. It's been three months since the project started. It's been 4 weeks since i joined this company and this project. I said to the Senior Project Manager, there is a need to redesign the system. We have to do it at this early stage. We cannot design a system like this and it will not work. When the project grows, it will become difficult to do anything at all. There is a high risk of failure. And the manager responded "No, No, NO... we have to give a demo to the client next week and there is a release planned week after next. Lets move on with the same way we are doing".
OK alright. Team is totally focused on doing some crap to show it to the client because they don't know how to solve the client's problem.
And how will those who have a lot to explain react when somebody starts pointing out some minor flaws and stubbornly keeps bringing them up? They will probably bow their heads in shame and qietly take their hats, right?
"I don't know, extraterrestrial?"
"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."
0. Start slacking off and accomplish almost nothing.
1. Get fired for non-performance.
2. Negotiate large payment for not bad-mouthing the company publicly.
Seriously though, it sounds like you made a mistake taking this job. Cut your losses, restart your job search, and move on. "There's no shame in making a mistake like this," he said with the voice of experience. There will be shame in staying and suffering.
The internet makes dumb people dumber and clever people cleverer.
Prepare to get out of there as quickly as you can. There is not much to be learned and fighting against windmills will only cost you your last nerves. The really crazy thing is, that you can encounter such a mess far too often and somehow everyone involved defends it as if it ever caused anything else than trouble. Admitting the truth would call for some people's heads and the guy who points it out usually makes a lot of friends instantly.
"I don't know, extraterrestrial?"
"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."
I don't know what is worst... the books or the comments below?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
