Who says this guy (or girl) doesn't have a Bachelor's (or Master's) degree in programming?
It wouldn't be the first time I see a "licensed" programmer producing code like that Roll eyes | :rolleyes:

I once worked with someone who was certified and expensive and wrote a separate service that was so bad it negated future development.
Like literally, we added some fields to the database, filled them with data, and half an hour later that service would set the fields to NULL again.
Took me a while to find that one Laugh | :laugh:
You can imagine that wasn't the only WTF in that code base...

Then there's this guy who was equally certified, full of himself, called me "a little man", and then made an unsolicited code change that broke production Dead | X|
The reason he made the change is because I had wrote a function containing something like 30 lines of code (including white lines and curly braces), which he thought was bad practice.
After he "refactored" it he took out the "usings" because ".NET handles that for you".
He also somehow added an additional database call and discarded the results, which actually broke it.

And then we had the fourth year application developer intern who literally couldn't declare a variable because "he forgot the syntax".
Needless to say we failed him, but somehow he passed his next internship and a year after he couldn't declare a variable he was applying for a job at some big company Unsure | :~

Don't speak to me about "professional licensing", people are bunglers and no amount of licensing can fix that Dead | X|
