The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
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.
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.
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.
I have been asked to extract emails, attachments, contacts and calenders from a number of large PST files and to export the emails as DOCX files. I have written some VBA code in Outlook to do this, but the scope of this project has rapidly expanded and this is now too slow. I reckon there are about a million or more emails and attachments in total.
Can anyone recommend tools (free or paid-for) that can quickly and efficiently do this?
I was approached recently for a role with a local software house. As it was local, and the job spec sounded interesting I agreed to an interview. I recently had a second meeting to go into the role in more detail. I'm now really confused. The role sounds great, the MD (who interviewed me) was a really great guy and they want the role to guide them technically going forwards (so will have a lot of say in their technical decisions). On the other hand though, I'm happy where I am. I've built up the proceses, technical stack, architecture, build / release pipelines etc from scratch. I have made a huge difference since starting here 3.5 years ago. I have a personal investment and feel reluctant to just walk away from what I've built here. I have a lot of autonomy and decision making responsibility here too.
I'd be interested to hear other people's thoughts.
"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult." - C.A.R. Hoare
