The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
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.
Please pay attention to the 2nd word of the 2nd sentence of the 2nd paragraph. No tricks, no special characters and boom the filter code can suck my balls.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
Yes, but it was written by his mistress, May O'Naise.
«There is a spectrum, from "clearly desirable behaviour," to "possibly dodgy behavior that still makes some sense," to "clearly undesirable behavior." We try to make the latter into warnings or, better, errors. But stuff that is in the middle category you don’t want to restrict unless there is a clear way to work around it.» Eric Lippert, May 14, 2008
Currently my job offers me a 1-2 days a week working from home, and I really enjoy that setup. Actually I would love to move to a 100% work from home setup. I'm rather early in my career, 2 years of experience and graduated with my bachelor's 6 months ago. I get the impression working from home is usually a privilege reserved for employees who have been with the company for many years (unless their local office closes and they're forced into it, I should be so lucky).
Does anyone work from home now, and how would they rate the opportunities out there for someone just starting out? I'm a Systems Engineer and I do a mix of Dev Ops, Linux & Windows Administration, VMware Administration and Cloud Administration. Is there any specific niche anyone could recommend where WorkFromHome jobs are plentiful, and rank isn't so heavily discriminated?
My current position also has 1-2 days a week WFH but it can be extended if needed like this week when my kids are out of school for "fall break".
I will be glad to get back to the office next week. WFH is nice but even this misanthrope has found he needs face to face coworker contact.
You do have to be disciplined in your work ethic though, it's very tempting and easy to get distracted but when you get focused you can find yourself working longer than you might if you were in the office.
