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.
My current employer (for how long but that another issue!) is trying to move to having all 'stuff' online (well lets give them some credit!) GIT was used to track some files (not source code!) and now are we use Sharepoint, first thing is this right, I was fairly certain we shouldn't use GIT but is Sharepoint the right thing to use?
Well it's my role,
In my experience trying to leave stuff your doing in a goodish shape
Karma aside... that's the difference between professionals and [fill the gap with your favourite word here, I just want to keep it respectful].
You don't do your work well for them, you do it for yourself. They pay you for it until the last day.
Ethics or fairness about the redundant job... that's another topic.
But I do respect your position here.
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.
My experience of SharePoint is that it is the storage equivalent of a Black Hole. Once a document has been saved, it passes some kind of Event Horizon and is lost for ever, I do not know how many hours I have spent looking for documents in it only to admit defeat and rewrite them from scratch.
For non-source-code files, I have to admit that SP works well -- as long as you switch to "classic sharepoint view" every time you open it (otherwise you have to deal with all the time-consuming and energy-draining recent "improvements").
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
SharePoint is most often used for the storing of version-controlled documents, such as Word documents and Excel worksheets. In many environments, email is used for passing documents back and forth between users. The potential for mixing up different versions of the same document is considerable. Also, storing multiple copies of the same document takes up a lot of disk space. Because SharePoint provides a single source for storing, viewing, and updating documents, many of these issues are eliminated.
