I am amazed to say that Neath Port Talbot council did just that between Monday and this morning - normally they leave it for six months so they can have nice big children of their own before they send a man with a bucket of tarmac ...

AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
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.
Well I have to admit, it's not my office thats caused it, it's the incompetance of those higher in the food chain, not knowing what or how we work. This has taught me a lesson though, take pride in what you personally do. I haven't been given the official chop yet, just notice. So the climate being what it is I am preparing for the worst. I think I would have left anyway, I wasn't really making use of the skills I have... Plus a comment from my employer saying I did shoddy work on my way out might not be nice!
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").

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.
