GeneralDoomed again Pinprofessionalloctrice27-Aug-14 5:35 
The last company I worked for closed. Now I am back at the first job (I've only worked 2 places as a programmer).

My job is mostly updating the old stuff. We have a dos POS type system, flat file data structure, etc. The systems we use are all separate, and we need them to talk to one another. Stuff like that.

We are nearly ready to start working on our tablet system. It's been a long year, but I been working my tail off. Anything new has been written in c#/MVC, and I've been replacing, updating, and maintaining all of the other stuff.

We are starting to lose our customers to a competitor who already has tablet ordering. The problem with that is that they pretty much go by word of mouth in that community, so it's safe to say if we lose one and it goes well, then we'll lose more. So, I have till January probably to make the splash, or this company may start down sizing.

I'm not even sure at what point it's too late. I know that we better have it on the show floors by January, but I'm not sure that will save us either.
