Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
And don't criticize what you don't understand
Your son's and your daughters are out of your command
Your old world is rapidly aging
Please get outta the new one if you cant lend a hand
Monday starts Diarrhea awareness week, runs until Friday!
I have been a professional programmer/developer/whatever since 1980. I wrote my first working program in 1975 (it worked first time, and the rest is history).
I know a lot of stuff, I have forgotten more stuff than a lot of people know, I have a PhD in CS and have worked every position (in five countries and two continents) from Junior Programmer on a mainframe to Director of Software Development in a couple of companies doing everything from expert systems to language interpreters to tape robot control. I have written standards documents at a lot of companies and trained many, many developers in HTML, XML, multi-threading, and other useful stuff. I have now taken a position as a Senior Software Engineer in the government as a sort of retirement job (the medical and pension plans are great!).
Then a member of my team insists on plugging React into our huge web-based intranet system, breaks everything in sight but still insists he is right and we should all change everything to fit his new idea of how things should be done. In addition he spends at least half of every code-review explaining why our established naming conventions should be changed to the way he does it because he read an article by someone who worked on Farcebook who suggested some conventions.
My question is:
Where is the best place to bury a body? Just asking for a friend.
[Update] Our wonderful manager has moved him to another team. The complaints have already started. Now I am really asking for a friend!

"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
