Ah; that makes life a bit more complicated, dunnit? I can just focus on code, go for the best option without having to think about politics with the client. I can give reasons and arguments for what I do, and give the manager the option to choose; his/her arguments are final, since I don't do that voodoo. They know clients and their social/financial situation, I know nothing but code.

Manager explained me that clients want the best solution for the least amount of money. I cannot guess value, unless I can put a breakpoint there. What is best is "complicated". I don't even like discussing it, you do it right or you don't do it at all. If you are depending on the happiness of a client, then things like security may suffer.

Good luck to you. If you're good at both things, then you're on the road to success.

..but that road will be hard and long. Just sayin', so you not gonna be surprised.
